I love the old Odd Couple TV show. It’s a little dated now, since we’ve seen so many TV shows based on the same basic premise since then. Frasier and Two and a Half Men and countless other shows owe a big debt to Tony Randall and Jack Klugman. Their chemistry was fantastic, and it’s showcased admirably in the new DVD from Paramount Home Entertainment, The Odd Couple Fan Favorites, out March 6th.
There are eight great episodes on the best-of DVD, my favorite being the one where Oscar and Felix team up to go on the game show Password. Which I guess was pretty big in the 70s. The show was hosted by Alan Ludden, who guest stars on the episode with his wife at the time, Betty White.
What I found hilarious was that they made fun of Betty White’s age. Her AGE! Haha, she’s an old woman! Remember, this episode was from 1972! That’s right, Betty White was hilariously old FORTY years ago. Ah, some things never change!
There are some other guest appearances on the disc, including Bubba Smith who was playing for the Raiders at the time. The best thing about the Fan Favorites DVD set though, is that at eight episodes, it is all the Odd Couple that you need.
