John Ritter (may he rest in peace) was the star of "Three's Company." He was always such a perfect comic actor because both his slapstick and deadpan expressions could make even the most serious viewer laugh hysterically. Jack has always been my very favorite character of this series. And even though Mr. Ritter has passed away way too soon his legacy will live forever.
I used to watch the repeats of "Three's Company" as a little child and I always felt like I was watching a "grown up show." Twenty years later it doesn't seem "risque" or sexually charged like most primteime (and unimaginative) sitcoms are today. However, "Three's Company" was a pioneer in the sexual revolution of modern American television, because they were able to push the envelop of submission just a little further each week. But it is also a very funny, classic, sitcom that the entire family can watch. It is unfortunate that "Three's Company" never really got the respect it deserved. Although Jenilee Harrison and Priscilla Barnes are excellent, it is also unfortunate that by the 6th season Suzanne Somers was long gone.
