Clearly you came from another planet to tidy up ours - Oscar Madison
Got excited when the news was announced that "The Odd Couple" would be brought back this year on CBS.
Of course, comparisons would be made to the comedy from the 70s starring Tony Randall and Jack Klugman.
Still, I was rooting for this new sitcom that featured one of my favorite actors, Matthew Perry, who portrays the slob made famous by the indelible work of Walter Matthau in film and Klugman in the network offering.
Perhaps the dearth of interesting offerings today on TV made me root for this latest incarnation to succeed. (Really, how many zombie or reality shows DO we need on the airwaves?)
Always have been a fan of Perry's comedic chops and quick sarcasm.
Thomas Lennon of "Reno 911" was a good choice for the role of the fussy, neatnik Felix Unger, who is a health nut.
Didn't really expect this new version of the Odd Couple to surpass the original series. What top that?
Some critics have been tepid in their reviews, and the series is still in its infancy.
I hope this version continues to blossom.
Please don't make me watch any dance contests instead.
