Funny as Ever

ImageThe Odd Couple–Season 4 (Paramount)
In their fourth season as TV’s favorite mismatched Manhattan roommates, Tony Randall and Jack Klugman were at the height of their popularity, and their comic chemistry was as strong as ever. The trouble, however, was that the scripts weren’t always up to their level: at first it was imperceptible, but silly plotting began gumming up the works. It wasn’t a series-killer, and The Odd Couple never jumped the shark (like Happy Days and other shows), but Felix and Oscar had only one season left after this one.
