Three's A Crowd: all time favorites
I think I'm the only one on this board appreciating Three's A Crowd TAC) much much more than Three's Company (TC). Me and my wife had hilarious nights with TAC. TAC's humor is more mature than Three's Company's. I have all the episodes of TC but when I watch them I mostly feel bored, especially by the flat characters of the girls. TAC's storyline digs deeper. The only hilarious character in the storyline is Jack. And that is a very good thing because he's the only one capable of humor without becoming a gross cartoon figure (like the girls, the ropers, Larry, etc. in TC). Vicky in TAC is not trying to be 'funny' like Janet in TC. This way she complements Jack's role in the series. For me and my wife, Three's A Crowd belongs to our all time favorite comedies. When it was aired in Suriname (North of Brazil)- where we live - I videotaped a lot of episodes. But as we all now, videotapes are not a stable medium (especially not in the tropic), and I lost everything. Maybe someday some TV-executive will put it on DVD.
