But sure enough, there are serious cuts this season that make viewing less enjoyable. The worst: the famous "role reversal" has its closing punchline cut off. The show stops when Felix says "I believe I sing better than you, Oscar." We don't get to see the bit where Felix sings "Cocktails for Two" and Oscar shuts him in the closet. Parts of Felix singing are also cut from at least two other episodes.
Three stars because the shows are still great and the total cuts on the season seem to be about two minutes. Still, this does not bode well for future seasons: Felix's band playing the square dance ... Paul Williams ... Laugh, Clown, Laugh ... Jaye P. Morgan ... Roy Clark ... Those episodes will be ruined if the music is cut.
I think someone owes true fans of the series an explanation. Other than here, where can we register our complaints? The sad fact is, if we do, instead of correcting them, they will probably respond by not releasing the 4th and 5th seasons. Shame on Paramount!
As one other reviewer said, what will happen with some of the later episodes? There are a few that revolve around music especially those with Felix's band the Sophisticados, and the Paul Willam's episode. Will these episodes be cut to bits? This type of greed is unacceptable and I will not be buying any future sets of The Odd Couple I'm sad to say. What a diasappointment.
Season three sees The Odd Couple butchered like never before. It's a shame that fans might never again see the episodes in their original form. As a big fan of classic TV, I feel like I've put up with this long enough. I bought season one of The Cosby Show and Roseanne -- both edited -- and all four edited seasons of ALF. I even went so far as to purchase WKRP. But this one takes the cake. There is no way I am putting down good money for an edited set of The Odd Couple.
So long Oscar and Felix.
