Mary Cadorette was awful, very stiff. Her character was a shrill stick-in-the-mud if I remember right.

Mary wasn't shrill - just stiff. Vicky and Jack were sweet, but boring. Agree that Richard Kline should have been on there from day 1, and EZ was a one-dimensional cartoon.

This show really had no reason to exist other than the fact that it could so it did. Three is Company had run its course by season 8, and the rating decline in the final season attested to that fact. TVFactFan was correct this was not a spinoff but just a continuation of the original series, two girls that Jack lived with but was not involved with were replaced by one girl who he was involved with. One meddlesome landlord was replaced by one meddlesome would be father-in-law. Not a whole lot new creatively to give an audience reason to show up each week, and again the ratings attested to that fact.

I hated it, honestly. It wasn't funny at all and the dad from what I remember was way beyond annoying.

The whole show is flat, and the laughs are few and far between. Even the clapping from the studio audience, leading into the closing credits, is noticeably more subdued when compared to that of its parent series.

The spin-off caused a rift between John Ritter and Joyce DeWitt, according to Joyce in her Unauthorized Story. In part because the producers asked John not to tell Joyce, and so he didn't tell her. Then she found out.
