The Odd Couple is a show that celebrates, or at least presents to the viewers, Plan B. Or maybe its Plan C, D , or Z. CBS presents us with an unlikely friendship between endearing slob Oscar Madison played by Matthew Perry (Friends) and his former college friend Felix Unger played by Thomas Lennon (17 Again, Reno 911!) whom he invites to move in with him when both their marriages fall apart. It is immediately apparent to Oscar that Felix’s uptight, neat-freak ways are at odds with his habits, so Oscar worries he has made an enormous mistake.
Together they come to the realization and mutual agreement that whatever their differences they can help each other move on from their divorces. What they don’t expect is to learn about themselves in the process, but as this show tells us, expect the unexpected.
