"THE ODD COUPLE -- two divorced men with polar-opposite personalities share a New York apartment -- is unparalleled." -- Grade: A-
Ultimate DVD - 07/01/2007 4 stars out of 5 -- "[Klugman and Randall] worked perfectly as the slob Oscar and pernickety hypochondriac Felix..."
Their characters may have been brought to the big screen by Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau, but Tony Randall and Jack Klugman went on to match, and arguably surpass, their predecessors' portrayals with the classic 1970s television series THE ODD COUPLE. Based on Neil Simon's hit Broadway play of the same name, the beloved sitcom chronicled the charmingly antagonistic friendship between neat freak Felix Unger (Randall) and carefree slob Oscar Madison (Klugman), whose polar-opposite personalities hilariously clashed after they became unwilling roommates following their respective divorces. Produced by TV impresario Garry Marshall (HAPPY DAYS, LAVERNE & SHIRLEY), THE ODD COUPLE stands as one of the true greats in television history. This collection presents the Emmy Award-winning series' debut season in its entirety.
