When two young, attractive girls, Chrissy and Jo, search for
a third sharer to help pay the rent on their Earl's Court
flat, they intended on finding another female. But they
reconsider when they meet young Robin Tripp, a catering
student whom they discover asleep in their bath the morning
after a party. It just so happens that he is on the look out
for somewhere local to rent, he tries to win the girls over
with his wit and charm, but it is his culinary skills that
make him the dish of the day as far as Chrissy and Jo are
concerned and so Robin becomes their third flatmate.
innocent menage a trois understandably raises a few eyebrows,
particularly with their landlords, George and Mildred Roper,
who live downstairs.
An enormously successful ITV sitcom, "Man About the House" took over in the mid-seventies and created two equally successful spin-off sitcoms.
