Three affable young adult roommates -- Jack (John Ritter), Janet (Joyce DeWitt) and (for the first five seasons) Chrissy (Suzanne Somers) -- share the challenges and joys of single life in this breezy sitcom that was a hit from the moment it made its 1977 debut. The coed living arrangement compels ladies' man Jack to pretend that he's gay to hoodwink their prudish landlord (Norman Fell) -- later replaced by the foppish Ralph Furley (Don Knotts).

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this still-hilarious '70s sitcom relies on sexual innuendo, silly physical humor, and monumental misunderstandings for its well-earned laughs. Throughout the series, Jack pretends to be gay so that his traditional landlords will allow him to live with two single women. There's no substantive negative commentary on homosexuality (though Jack sometimes camps it up a bit), but the masquerade is played for humor time and time again. The onscreen chemistry between Janet, Chrissy, and Jack (who fancies himself a ladies' man but rarely enjoys great luck with them) brings the subject of sexual attraction to the forefront, but the constant slapstick comedy keeps the tone light enough for family viewing with tweens. Even the innuendos seem pretty tame by today's standards; Chrissy's dumb-blonde shtick might raise more eyebrows among modern parents. Some kids might find the characters' constant mix-ups stressful.

Sexual Content

A large portion of the show's humor is based on sexual innuendoes, strong flirting scenes, and misinterpreted signals between the sexes. But the mood is kept light to play up the laughs. Female characters dress in tight pants, short shorts, and clingy tops, and occasionally they're seen in lingerie. Men often gaze longingly at pretty women or mention to their buddies the attractiveness of a woman's features.

Violence

Physical humor includes tumbles, collisions, and a few slaps, but it's all for laughs and doesn't lead to injury.
