Overview

Moving from Fridays to Thursdays for its fifth and final season, The Odd Couple opens the proceedings with "The Rain in Spain," featuring a surprise appearance by All in the Family's Rob Reiner as the boyfriend of Myrna Turner (played by Reiner's then-wife Penny Marshall), the secretary of sportswriter--and confirmed slob--Oscar Madison (Jack Klugman). Thereafter, it's business as usual, with Oscar getting on the nerves of his neatnik roommate Felix Ungar (Tony Randall), and vice versa, yet remaining best friends all the same. The celebrity guest stars continue to parade past the series' cameras during Season Five, beginning with Bob Hope in "The Hollywood Story." Gossip columnist Rona Barrett is seen in "The Dog Story," newscaster Howard K. Smith in "The Odd Candidate," Richard Dawson in "Laugh Clown Laugh," and, in a true "hit the jackpot" situation, sportscaster Howard Cosell, ABC executive Roone Arledge and Metropolitan Opera soprano Martina Arroyo in "Your Mother Wears Army Boots." Interestingly, while singer-composer Paul Williams plays "himself" in "The Paul Williams Show," country star Roy Clark is seen as "Willie Boggs" in "The Roy Clark Show" (though he still gets to play guitar). Episodes of special interest include "The Frog," in which Leif Garrett takes over from Willie Aames in the role of Felix's son Leonard; and "Our Fathers," a flashback to the 1920s wherein Felix and Oscar are "cast" as their own fathers. And let's not forget the series finale "Felix Remarries," with Felix and his ex-wife Gloria (Janis Hansen) reunited even while Oscar (Jack Klugman) joyously celebrates his "liberation" from Felix' fastidiousness!

    Disappointed

    I was very disappointed to find that almost all of the episodes had been cut as if they were appearing on TV. Whoever did the editing should be fired. As a for instance, cutting Pernell Roberts singing Felix's song at the end of the episode...what happended to it???

    The Odd Couple-Final Season

    The Final Season of The Odd Couple goes out as hillariously as it came in. As a native New Yorker, I find the clips from the old city restaurants and streets to be so nostalgic (e.g., The Press Box).<BR/><BR/>No two actors could have made a more loveable, memorable, and believable team!<BR/><BR/>Enjoy!
