Confession Time...

I loved the show Three's Company!

I did, it was so funny! Jack, Janet, and Chrissy/Terri/Cindy, those cards. I always wanted one girl and one guy roommate.

Then there was Larry, the perv-y kinda friend of Jack's always scamming on the ladies.

The Roper's were funny. How it was so taboo to have guys and girls living together platonically and how Jack had to be gay for it to be okay. Mrs. Roper secretely new he wasn't, she was cool. I loved her MuuMuu flowy-dress getups.

Then Barney Fife Mr. Ferley, and his googly-eyed antics.

It was a GREAT show!

In the 80's I had my trusty cassette-tape player and a blank tape and I would audio record the shows. Yes, I did.

When my family would take a car ride, I would listen (without headphones people!) to the shows in the car. That was my entertainment.

Don't feel sorry for me, I loved it. I had some of those shows memorized!

Ahh, to have a drink at the Regal Beagle!

If you want to reminisce a bit, here are some bloopers...


My Hubby likes to tease me about it now. Like Dukes of Hazzard and Chips were any better. He can only dream as being as cool as Ponch or Bo Duke. ;)

    Wait -- this isn't a confession. This is a CLUB we should start! I can quote TC as much as I can quote Friends! I used to watch all the reruns after school every day in the 80's, and I loved loved LOVED this show. I still get choked up at the scene where Janet's about to get married and Jack talks to her in the bedroom. *gulp* I love that we have this in common!

  13. Jen said...

    I was a HUGE Three's Company fan! I even wrote John Ritter a fan letter at age 5. Looking back on it now, I think it is funny that my mom let me watch the show when I was 5. I guess the adult humor just went over my head. Thanks for the memories!

  14. JLT6907 said...

  15. Kelly said...

    this was one of my FAVE shows when I was little. I still watch it when it is on with re-runs. I have the made for tv three's co. movie on tape too. And the show where they all spoke about Three's Co. (like true hollywood story type of thing)
    I also have Dukes of Hazzard on dvd. And when I was little, by gpa taped them for us. We had every episode on tape at one point.

    Three's Company rocked. Not so much the later ones when they moved from the upstairs apartment though.

  24. Petra a.k.a The Wise (*Young*) Mommy said...

    I also loved Three's COmpany and I thought Jack Tripper was simply dreamy!!

  25. Charming Lamb said...

  37. Tara @ Feels like home said...

    I loved 3's company, too. I remember watching and thinking it was a riot when I was in elementary school. What great memories!

  38. flickrlovr said...

    I think (don't shoot me) Three's Company may have been a little before my time ;)

    I was an '88 baby, and didn't really start watching TV shows until I was a teenager (no TV household, thaaaaanks Mom...I missed out on a lot of Barney, et al.)

    That was pretty funny though ;)

  39. Nessa said...

    I love Three's Company! We love all the late 70s early 80s shows. We honestly watch more of those via Netflix than we do modern tv.

  40. ali said...

    I loved watching the reruns after school! I think I've seen every episode about 20 times:) My aunt thought it was horrible and didn't let her kids watch it. I'm glad my parents weren't so stuffy!

  41. Manic Mom said...

    TV was cool back then. I was Daisy back in the day. Short shorts & all. LOL
