Perry’s plan is to bring the “The Odd Couple” back to teevee. Really. Click here to read all about it.”
“The Odd Couple” started out as a Broadway play in 1975 which was written by Neil Simon. A movie version came out in 1968 and was followed by the television series which ran on ABC from 1970 through 1975.
I loved that old television show with Jack Klugman and Tony Randall—watched it during its regular network run and then watched the reruns many times. That was enough for me.
Remember “The New Odd Couple?” You probably don’t. It came on the teevee in 1982 using recycled scripts from the old ABC show. It was awful. After 18 shows, it got cancelled.
I don’t know. Do we really need or want another “Odd Couple?” Yes. I’m asking.
