Default Roper or Furley??

I always preferred Mr. Furley when I was younger. I liked Don Knott's a lot. Mostly because of TAGS, but he was good in pretty much everything in my opinion.

Now when I watch the show, I'm really digging Mr. Roper. He has much more of a sinister streak than Furley. He spies on sunbathers at a nude beach and has a collection of nudie magazines but wouldn't have sex with his own wife to save his life.

Who do you prefer?

Furley! Nothing against Norman Fell -- he was great in the role -- but the Stanley and Helen thing was pretty much a one joke bit and got a little old after awhile. I can never get enough of Don Knotts.

I like them both, it's hard to pick one over the other since I've been a fan of the show for 32 years now that the characters grow on you.

I must admit that i love them both, but have to give the edge to Mr. Furley. It must be because after Chrissy left, they gave a lot of the "ditzy" lines to him. I'd always have a good laugh when he would hyperventilate and stop breathing turning into a mummy of sorts! And also when he would act macho and do that manly sniff -

Too funny.

Between the two I prefer Mr. Roper.I've always liked Don Knotts and of course he played Barney on The Andy Griffith Show to perfection. However on Three's Company I always thought Norman Fell as Roper was just a little funnier to me than Furley.Both actors and characters are great though.

Between the two alone it would be Furley. But I always think of Mr. and Mrs. Roper as a matching set, so them together beat Mr. Furley. I love Furley, though. He was much more lovable and outlandish than Roper.

Roper. Fell was a better actor than Knotts. Furley was more of a cartoon than Roper. The show's relative realism of the Roper years compared to what came later can't be beat.

I agree with this. Just to add that Roper was also more of antagonist than Furley. Roper generally didn't help the kids out unless there was something in it for him.

Roper just for that simple little grin or smile in the camera when he think he said something smart.
