Trivia

She also appeared in Go On (2012), in which Matthew Perry starred too. Graham also had a guest spot on Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip in which Matthew Perry's character asks her out, and she accepts, albeit unwillingly. See more »

Goofs

The outside shot of Oscar's apartment building looking up at the sky shows the Empire State Building pretty much right next to it, however, the window view from his apartment shows the Empire State Building off in the distance, with the Chrysler Building closer. See more »

The jokes didn't get with the times, but the show didn't deserve to be cancelled
16 May 2016 | by See all my reviews

I love Perry, and his previous shows such as Go On and Mr Sunshine were good. And The Odd Couple is exponentially better - better actors, setting, jokes - it definitely deserved a few more seasons. Seriously - the cast is flawless - only good, charming actors.

The downsides were the old school jokes and canned laughter - we can't have those in this day of age. Friends-grade humor is pure cringe nowadays, and the actors carried that show purely with their personalities.

The Odd Couple also has good personalities but they're just not enough to carry the show trough the not-so-impressive, unoriginal and often ridiculous jokes.

Perry was a bit dead in the eyes on many occasions which worried me about his health. I really hope he's OK and taking care of himself for the sake of his fans at least. We love you.

The obligatory love interest sub-plot was pushed way too early and became a main thing way too fast, which also probably drove the viewers away. Again, it's not the 80's - this show should've been about Felix and Oscar, and occasionally friends - not cliché love interests. At least the plot of Felix and his girlfriend had comedic elements to it, and they were both played by funny actors, unlike how it was with Oscar. The elderly woman who played his girlfriend doesn't even belong in a comedy. She made the already terrible, cliché, pathetic love interest sub-plot for Oscar even more unwatchable.

With all the crap that's on air nowadays - this show definitely wasn't as bad and it deserved to continue. I wish all the best to Perry, I hope he's in good health and will certainly continue to watch whatever's next in his career.
