    I'm with you, Luis! I would love to see the episodes be available on DVD. If they ever do become available, I wouldn't have to watch the re-runs every night. [​IMG]

    I wonder if they would edit the episode where you can see Jacks balls? When they aird the marathon on Nickelodeon, they played an episode where Jack jumps onto a bed, and his testicles come out the side of his shorts. Apparently it has always been like this, but no one noticed. A viewer called in to complain, and Nickelodeon reviewed the episode, and indeed they do hang out. So, they're not showing that episode anymore.

    Oh, yeah. I want to see that episode where Chrissy says something, and there is a big misunderstanding when Jack hears it second hand, and the problem could be solved by them simply talking to each other, but wackiness ensues. Which episode was that again?
    Oh, plus the episode where it turns out Chrissy really WASN'T pregnant. Hilarious!

    Yes, I was also a fan of the show, and as well, I also picked up a few of those recent Nick At Nite Tuesday Night Unrealithons--especially of the later years, which led to my favorite actual period of the series.
    It was from 1979-on, when Joyce DeWitt went from being a fuller-bodied, curly-haired girl-next door type to a svelte, short-haired type, resulting in a, to me, far-more sassier, more confident Janet Wood, a result of Joyce adopting more of a take-charge attitude about herself and her life. Personally, even as a teeenager at that time, I sensed that and also admired her courage in stepping out for herself as she did. Even in putting up with Mr. Furley's foolishness during those latter years, it was all very much and well worth it. [​IMG]
    And with all due respect to Suzanne Sommers and Jenilee Harrison, I dug the rapport Joyce and John Ritter had with Priscilla Barnes those final seasons. While the comedy was, to me, as crazy as ever, I also sensed an underlying maturity to it all with those three on board which I honestly liked. My enjoyment of the show, as a result, ensued.
    I would support a Three's Company DVD collection happily!!!!! Especially those later episodes with a more confident, svelte Joyce and Priscilla together with John!!!! [​IMG]

    I would love to have a Three's Company DVD set.
    The fact that I recently found out I'm related to John Ritter from a couple of generations back has no bearing on this fact:
    I loved that show!!! [​IMG] I'd buy it in a heartbeat!

    Hey remember the episode where there was some kind of misunderstanding?
    I have to say when I saw "The Talented Mr. Ripley" I thought it kind of played out like a "Three's Company" episode gone horribly wrong. Especially the Opera scene.
    John Ritter's physical comedy in this series is nothing short of brilliant.
    LONG LIVE LARRY!

    John Ritter is amazing indeed. One thing that I always find funny is that I like Janet more than I like any of the other girls and yet the other were always portrait as been the most beautiful while Janet was the "intelligent one". I don't know why but I found Janet to be very beautiful...crush alert [​IMG]
    About the Jacks....errr..uncensored scene all I have to say is thank GOD I missed it!
    Who has the right for the show and how likely is it to happen?

    It's the "Mary-Anne" syndrome. [​IMG] Janet is closer to that cute "girl next door" look than any of the others (though they all were goregeous, particularly Jenlee Harrison IMHO).

    Wasn't there an episode where Mrs. Roper wanted to have sex and Mr. Roper didn't want to? [​IMG]
    They don't make them this good anymore.

    I want to see the epiosde again, where Jack pretends to be his twin Texan cousin is it? and all Jack has to do is put a cowboyhat on in front of Mr. Furley[​IMG]

    Dave,
    I absolutely remember that episode.
    If memory serves, Fell and Lindley made a few guest appearances on Three's Company while their spin-off The Ropers was still on the air and this is probably one of those episodes.
    I'll see if some research can back this up. [​IMG]

    Believe me, there was such an episode. I've watched the show in its entirety about six times over now thanks to Nick-at-Nite. Can't. Stop. Watching.

    Anyway, Mrs. Roper has a fight with Mr. Roper, so she shows up at the kids' apartment. Mr. Furley is out of town, and Janet is watching his fish or turtles or something, so she has access to his apartment. Not wanting to have Mrs. Roper in the way, the kids convince her to sleep in her old apartment. Mr. Roper comes home unexpectedly, gets into bed without realizing Mrs. Roper is there, and hilarity ensues.

    Actually, that and the "Texas brother" episode were kind of funny and all, but they were in the period when the show was starting to go downhill. It had a bad spell, but got decent again towards the end. It's all watchable, but there are some that aren't so good.

    When I saw the original date of this thread, I was extremely excited and scrolled down to the bottom to look for a release date! [​IMG] None found....
    Count me in for the entire set - it's the only TV show my family agrees that we should own (nevermind that I have picked up quite a few anyway [​IMG])
