5.0 out of 5 stars THE BEST COUPLE, 28 Feb 2009

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Odd Couple: Complete Series Pack [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
On the one hand you have Felix Unger, a refined, sensitive man with a mass of allergies, who is obsessed with cleanliness and tidiness and expects everyone else to have the same values that he has. On the other hand you have Oscar Madison, a rough, almost uncouth man for whom cleanliness and tidiness have no meaning and who, left to his own devices, would end up living in a pigsty.
These two are the Odd Couple, both divorced, who are sharing an apartment with each other despite the fact that they have hardly anything in common and are forever at each other's throats. Nevertheless, neither can get along without the other ( partly because no one else will tolerate them ) and they are firm friends who will always stick up for each other. The comic situations are inventive, the dialogue is witty and the actors are funny. Tony Randall and Jack Klugman are a joy to watch as Felix and Oscar, and this really is a feel-good series.
The catchy theme music was composed by the great Neal Hefti whose excellent film scores include 'Duel at Diablo' ( 1966 ), ' Barefoot In The Park' ( 1966 ) and, of course, 'The Odd Couple' ( 1968 ).
This set contains the entire series consisting of 114 episodes each lasting around 25 minutes. The series ran between 1970 and 1975.
Special features include audio commentaries, original TV promos, appearances on The Mike Douglas Show ( not Kirk's son, Michael ) and Tony and Jack on stage in the 1993 stage play of The Odd Couple.
Highly recommended!
