5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Show. Ever Better DVD Release 28 Oct 2007
This show was fantasic when I used to watch it years ago but hadn't seen it in years so when this came out I jumped at the chance to buy it hoping i'd still enjoy it. I never had to worry as it was just as funny today as it was back then. Jack & Tony are fantasic in their roles & this DVD release of the first 'season' is a triumph by CBS. If only all DVDs were released to such a high standard. The case is the same size as a standard case but re-designed to house it's 5 disks. Even the disks themselves look expensive & lovely presented in gray with silver writing. This series has been re-mastered & look great, although not crystal clear but they are from the 70s. All 24 episodes are here with some nice special specials that are listed above which are all again, well thought out which makes this DVD special. 10 hrs & 11 mins of pure comedy & while the chances are small it'll get a region 2 released this one plays well on a multiplayer. My opinion is obvious. It's a fantastic release of a fantastic comedy series so buy it now as it's price too is a bargain.

4.0 out of 5 stars Only Problems are in the commentaries. 29 Feb 2012
Just been watching this DVD again, after having it my collection since it's release. It is generally accepted by most "Odd Couple" fans that this, season 1, is the "least good" of the five seasons - due, in no small part to the use of a laugh track/no studio audience. Personally I prefer this season to a lot of the episodes from seasons 4 and 5. (Not all - I hasten to add!). Some of my favourite episodes come from this season - "The Jury Story", "It's All Over Now Baby Bird" "They Use Horse Radish, Don't They?" "Bunny is Missing" (not a popular choice, but Tony Randall is perfect in the last scene with Pamelyn Ferdin) and, the highlight - the penultimate episode "What Does A Naked Lady Say To You" (again, not realised as the classic it is IMHO)

My problem - the commentaries ... Whilst it is obviously nice to have Carole Shelley (Gwendilyn Pigeon) comment on the opening episode - the vast majority of her comments relate to being in the original stage show and the movie. Hey Carole, we are watching the TV show at the moment!! You make it perfectly clear that you prefer Jack Lemmon and Art Carney in the Felix role - not directly, but by implication.

Garry Marshall too - totally irritates with his constant references to his film career since the ODD COUPLE...."I did this in the Princess Bride"....."I was learning on the Odd Couple - I did it better on Pretty Woman" etc.

Jack Klugman himself comments on "It's All Over Now Baby Bird" (The ODD COUPLE's Dead Parrot episode) ...but sadly, he repeats certain anecdotes several times :(.

However, all in all, an essential release. Cut one star due to the reasons stated above.

2.0 out of 5 stars a disappointing beginning for a great series 22 Jan 2010
I watched The Odd Couple a lot when it was getting late night repeats in the 80s and 90s, and I recall it as a funny show! But these episodes are very weak, lacking the bite that developed later. It seems to have been aimed at a different market, the comedy is very unsophisticated and generally somewhat lame. Even during this first series there seems to be some hardening up, some stronger focus, the later episodes being better than the earlier ones. But the team still had a way to go before they really hit form.
This inoffensive fare might suit people who like... inoffensive fare!

5.0 out of 5 stars Well Worth The Wait! 11 Feb 2007
By Servo - Published on
"On November 13th, Felix Unger was asked to remove himself from his place of residence. That request came from his wife. Deep down, he knew she was right. But he also knew that someday he would return to her. With nowhere else to go, he appeared at the home of his childhood friend, Oscar Madison. Some time earlier, Madison's wife had thrown him out, requesting that he never return. Can two divorced men share an apartment without driving each other crazy?"

That question, delivered in a hilarious monotone by veteran narrator William Woodson ("Battle of the Planets"), would scratch at the minds of Odd Couple viewers for 5 seasons (1970-1975). Starring Tony Randall as fastidious photographer Felix Unger and Jack Klugman as sloppy sportswriter Oscar Madison, "The Odd Couple" (based on Neil Simon's play and the 1968 film) was a humorous yet brilliant character study of one of television's greatest comedy duos. The beauty of the show is in the simplicity of the premise which practically begs the question: Are you (the viewer) a Felix or an Oscar?

The show's supporting cast include Monica Evans & Carole Shelley (reprising their 1968 film roles) as daffy neighbors Cecily & Gwendolyn Pidgeon; Garry Walberg, Ryan MacDonald, Larry Gelman, and Al ("Happy Days") Molinaro as poker pals Speed, Roy, Vinnie, and Murray the cop. Look for Penny ("Laverne & Shirley") Marshall and Joan Hotchkis later on as Oscar's secretary, Myrna Turner and girlfriend, Dr. Nancy Cunningham respectively.

The Odd Couple - The First Season is a 5-disc set featuring all 24 episodes in Full Frame (1.33:1) video and English mono, plus the following Special Features: audio intros on each episode by producer Garry Marshall, cast and crew commentary on select episodes, original network promos, Emmy Award acceptance footage, cast talk show appearances, Tony Randall and Jack Klugman on stage in "The Odd Couple" in 1993 and more! Here are how the discs will be configured:

Disc One:
"The Laundry Orgy"
"The Fight of the Felix"
"Felix Gets Sick"
"The Jury Story"
"The Breakup"
"Oscar's Ulcer"

Disc Two:
"I Do, I Don't"
"Oscar The Model"
"The Big Brothers"
"It's All Over Now, Baby Bird"
"Felix Is Missing"
"Scrooge Gets An Oscar"

Disc Three:
"The Blackout"
"They Use Horseradish, Don't They?"
"The Hideaway"
"Lovers Don't Make House Calls"
"Engrave Trouble"
"Bunny Is Missing Down By the Lake"

Disc Four:
"You've Come A Long Way, Baby"
"A Taste of Money"
"Oscar's New Life"
"What Makes Felix Run"
"What Does A Naked Lady Say To You?"

Disc Five:
(Tony Randall and Jack Klugman's all-time favorite episodes)
"Sleepwalker" from Season Two
"Password" from Season Three
"Last Tango in Newark" from Season Four
"The New Car" from Season Four

Highly Recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars FINALLY PARAMOUNT'S JUMPING ON THE BANDWAGON!!! 20 Jan 2007
By Tamra J. Gibson - Published on
It's should'nt surprize me that Paramount has finally taken an interest in releasing The Odd Couple's first season on dvd, after Time/Life released it back in August and it sold like hotcakes. I suppose they (the idiots in charge of dvd releases) was'nt smart enough to realize that The Odd Couple still has a huge fanbase and people will definately buy the entire series on dvd!!!

Needless to say I already bought the first season release from Time/Life and it was fantastic!!! The episodes were even funnier than I remembered in syndication! This release from Paramount seems pretty similiar to Time/Life's, except for the cover art and perhaps an extra disc of Tony Randall's and Jack Klugman's favorite episodes. The good thing about this release from Paramount is there's good chance The Odd Couple's remaining seasons will see the light of day, and the bad thing is it will be a long wait for season 2!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome to DVD Felix and Oscar 6 Feb 2007
By Bennet Pomerantz - Published on
Tony Randal & Jack Klugman take over from Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau in the Television version and make this version their own.

This first season of the TV show on DVD has a few extra, each episode has Garry Marshall, creator for Television/Producer and director doing openning intros to each episode. Marshall and Jack Klugman do audio commentary. One would wish Tony Randel was still with us toi do to hear what he says. Also missing is commentary by Penny Marshall, one can hope for season two

What I loved about this set is the odd partner and the chemestry Randall and Klugman have on the screen, it is amazing to watch. This partnership will never come again, but it so great to watch it

There are extras as in audio commentary on assorted episodes, Mike Douglas shows and Emmy win speech from Klugman.

and a 5th disk that is not in the Time Life release with 4 episode which are Randall & Klugman favorites..Password, Sleepwalker, Last Tango in Newark and The New Car

It is worth it? You better believe it

5.0 out of 5 stars The Odd Couple - The First Season 27 Jan 2007
By Katilo - Published on
Well it's about time!!!! And speaking of time, I also picked up season one from Time/Life. It is simply fantastic! I can't wait until the rest of the seasons are available. Jack Klugman and Tony Randall are truly one of the best comedy teams on TV.
