Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The second season of the much-loved TV sitcom Three's Company arrives on DVD with enough extras to satisfy even the most rabid fan. After making a splash during its first-season run in 1976, ABC parked the show in its unstoppable Tuesday night lineup (following Happy Days and Laverne and Shirley and preceding Soap) for the 1977-78 season, where it exploded into one of primetime's biggest successes. The secret to the show was its naughty-but-harmless tone, which was capably delivered by its talented cast. Though Suzanne Somers was the breakout star, John Ritter's effortless physical and verbal comedy won respect among viewers. All 25 episodes of the second season are compiled in the six-disc set, highlights of which include appearances by Richard Kline's hapless Larry in four episodes (before he joined the cast in season 4), Jack's turn as a nude model in "Jack Takes a Job," an amusing Christmas episode ("Three's Christmas"), and Loni Anderson in the season closer, "Coffee, Tea or Jack."

Fans who bemoaned the lack of extras on Anchor Bay's first-season set will be bowled over by the wealth of supplemental material compiled here. Chief among the treasures is the never-aired original pilot (one of two) featuring Ritter as "David" opposite Valerie Curtin and Suzanne Zenor; penned by M*A*S*H's Larry Gelbart, the episode is much wittier than many of the actual series scripts, but ABC jettisoned it in favor of racier fare from All in the Family scribes Don Nicholl, Mickey Ross, and Bernie West. Chris Mann, author of the Three's Company compendium Come and Knock on Our Door offers commentary for the episode "Days of Beer and Weeds," while Joyce DeWitt narrates an affectionate tribute to Ritter. The extras are rounded out by a fun blooper reel, season 2 "best of" moments (Ritter gets a series-length retrospective), a trivia game, and an exhaustive memorabilia gallery that reveals the scope of the show's success during its fledgling seasons. Like a scoop of ice cream on a hot day, Three's Company's second season is light, refreshing, and pleasantly nostalgic entertainment. --Paul Gaita

5.0 out of 5 stars Bonus Features and Liner Notes Elevate This Release August 11, 2004
By Eddie
The strength of this THREE'S COMPANY Season 2 DVD lay primarily in its bonus materials and liner notes. Everyone has seen these episodes a thousand times, including now on TV Land and Nick at Night. Sure, it's nice to have uncut, digitally-transferred episodes of this classic show. Consumers should expect nothing less in any dvd tv series release.

But what elevates this release, and hopefully those to come in this series, are the bonus features, particularly the content newly-created for this DVD set and liner notes. Much of this detailed content is clearly due to Chris Mann, author of the well-respected and insightful biography of "Three's Company," titled "Come and Knock on Our Door," for which he interviewed nearly the entire cast and production staff. (Watch The E! True Hollywood Story again if you doubt that statement.) As a respected author and a producer of NBCs recent "Three's Company" behind-the-scenes movie, Chris brings depth and the perspective of an insider and expert to this project. The liner notes and his heartfelt audio commentary show how much he loved and respected John Ritter. And by the way, when John R. appeared on several talk shows after the book's release, he genuinely championed the book.

Mann's audio commentary contains reverent thoughts and stories about John Ritter, the rest of the cast and producers. But it is balanced with light-hearted, sometimes tongue-in-cheek observations about the show and the specific farcical episode being discussed. Mann seems to realize that most people loved this show for what it was and and hoped this season 2 "commemorative" release would pay respect to John and the show. (Let's not forget the rushed-for-profit-and-exposure First Season release that was such a disappointment to all of us.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outdoes Season 1 DVD May 7, 2004
By A Customer
First things first, I am really amazed by the reviews I've read here and elsewhere on the internet that gripe about the cover art for the DVDs of Three's Company, Seasons 1 and 2. The cover art? Are you serious? Please! That is like going thirsty for three weeks and finally being offered water, but because it is Dasani instead of Evian, you turn it down! Even if the cover art isn't to your liking, and with the rest of what you get on these discs, any less than 4 stars for this collection is unfathomable.
The Season 2 set is a complete steal. The content of the episodes, as always, speaks for itself. Then you have the amazing and extensive special features. The trivia game is a lot of fun, the tribute to Ritter, narrated by Joyce DeWitt is well presented, the original pilot was hilarious. The talent bios are a bit long, but interesting. Some background music to go with the reading might have helped. I was, however, slightly disappointed with the blooper reel but not too much. The "Best Of" clip reels for the key players were great, too.
Finally, the production quality of this set is far superior to Season 1. 25 episodes and all these other bonuses for thirty bucks make this a worthy investment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Come and knock on their door... April 21, 2005
Bursting onto the television landscape in Spring 1977, Three's Company quickly skyrocketed in the ratings - cracking the top 8 every season except its last. Sporting a plethora of quirky characters and fresh writing talent that explored modern day issues, the show held its own as one of the funniest programs on TV. Picking up where All In The Family left off, Three's Company delved into the social taboos of its day, dealing with subjects such as homosexuality, racism, sexual harassment, and of course, unmarried men and women living together... But the true success of Three's Company stemmed from the comic talents of John Ritter and Suzanne Somers who became instant stars as a result of their respective roles on the show...

In Three's Company, John Ritter plays the role of Jack Tripper, a young cooking student in San Diego who wants to move into an apartment with his two female friends - the far more mature Janet Wood (Joyce DeWitt) and the blonde and ditsy Chrissy Snow (Suzanne Somers). But the three friends face the possible wrath of landlord Stanley Roper (Norman Fell), an old-fashioned guy who would never allow such an arrangement. With the aid of Roper's wife Helen (Audra Lindley), the three manage to convince Stanley that Jack is gay (when he is, in fact, a notorious ladies man). Jack's friend Larry (Richard Kline) also fashions himself a player on the local singles scene, and he makes regular appearances on the show. Following Season 3, Stanley and Helen left the show in pursuit of their own spin-off titled The Ropers. Don Knotts (of Andy Griffith Show fame) was brought in to play the new landlord, Mr. Furley - a naïve, loud-mouthed ditz who tripled the hilarity of every scene in which he appeared...

5.0 out of 5 stars Even Better!!! January 1, 2005
By Melissa
These DVD box sets of Three's Company just keep getting better and better. The quality of the DVD I'm still amazed at - it's way better then viewing it on Television! Who ever put these sets together took a lot of time and care for all new and old fans to enjoy. I'll start off with listing my favorite episodes: Strange Bedfellows, Chrissy's Date, Alone Together, Chrissy's Night Out, Stanley Casanova, Janet's High School Sweetheart, Helen's Job, The Gift, Home Movies, Jack's Navy Pal, Days of Beer and Weeds, Chrissy Come Home, Bird Song, Coffee, Tea, or Jack. I've pretty much named them all and I enjoy watching them over and over again. Not too mention the extra's are basically to die for. I always watch the blooper's first and they are totally fun and great quality as well! Not to mention there's even a more loving tribute to John Ritter with Joyce DeWitt which will make you cry or at least tear up. I can't name all of the extra's because I haven't even viewed them all yet myself. This is a must have for any DVD collector or the fan of the series Three's Company. And as Lucille Ball says on the jacket of the first season DVD set, "It didn't set out to change the world. It just made us laugh and that's why we love it."
