Joyce DeWitt had just cut her godawful Season 3 perm--if you look closely you can still see the edges of the curls still remaining. She had this look for the first two or so Season 4 episodes before it was trimmed further.

That was not their Three's Company personalities-lol


BTW: The hairstyles that Janet and Chrissy wore in the Ropers episode was never seen on Three's Company
Now that you mention it yeah it does feel out of character and funny because I always assumed this episode was part of Three's Company since it was always aired in syndication as part of TC.

As someone pointed out to me, characters on television shows grow, change and develop over time and do NOT stay the same person season after season after season.

Making Jack a wimp seemed to be a big change from the character when we first met him as a Navy veteran.

I guess people thought it was funny, but I think it got overplayed over time.

But it was a response not a challenge remember? Brooks told Jack he used to be a fighter or something & then Jack said he was a boxer in the navy or whatever.

In one of the regular episodes Jack warned that goon Max that he knew Karate remember?

I think Jack PICKED his fights, like everyone else. I wouldn't ever consider Jack a coward in 3's Company, he was always ready to defend himself, BUT when he saw a guy was really BIG and an experienced fighter, he often backed down....that's not being a coward, that's being smart to not want to fight someone who could seriously hurt you.
