As much as I love the TV show "THE ODD COUPLE", I will give Paramount a one star rating (and that is a lot!) just because of their DVD episode butchering that is so evident throughout all of their Odd Couple DVD season box set releases.
Personally, and I am 100% certain this is true for all Odd Couple fans, I would have paid twice as much and even more if necessary just to have the complete episodes as they were intended to be.
The Odd Couple is a classic American TV show and a part of American television's evolution, heritage and history. They do not make television shows like this anymore. The Odd Couple should not have been butchered at all! A lot of love and care should have been given to every single one of the Odd Couple episode releases. Apparently, there was not the slightest consideration given to the artistic devotion and integrity of everyone involved in this great TV show.
Thanks but no thanks!...
I'll pass!... :- (
I have purchased the first four seasons of one of my all-time favorite series, The Odd Couple, but I refuse to buy Season 5. It's simply too painful to pay hard-earned money, then see how something I've waited 30+ years to view has been butchered due to the cheapskates at CBS.
I am so sick of being sold short by corruptorate fat cats. Until I can be assured that all five seasons have been restored and re-released, I will be boycotting everything CBS and/or Paramount releases. Everything.
I feel thoroughly cheated. It seems that in the case of The Odd Couple, F.U. does not stand for Felix Unger. It's what CBS is saying to its customers by cheating us. :-/
If you're familiar with the CBS/Paramount debacle on removing ALL music from The Fugitive (see the horrible reviews here on Amazon), then you know that CBS/Paramount has taken an exteremely lame tact: instead of even TRYING to settle music clearance issues, they have instead opted to avoid any POSSIBLE payments by simply cutting out ALL music on the show. Whoever their counsel is that advised them to do this, he should be out of a job.
The cuts are just ridiculous, and have been well documented by others here. I mean, isn't there such a thing as Fair Use? Felx sings ONE LINE of The Banana Boat song (Day-O) to wake up Oscar. Gone. Oscar is offered $500 to be in Felix's movie. His response: "I'm Gonna Be in Pictures" - ONE LINE. Gone.
I can see a few popular songs having to go due to expensive royalties, but it seems that Paramount is now taking an overly cautious and downright lazy approach and instead of dealing with the issue at all, they have decided to just cut the whole damn thing out, fans be damned.
I will NEVER, NEVER buy another CBS/Paramount product unless they rectify this. Put out a deluxe set for hradcore fans with all of the music put back in. I'd buy it, regardless of cost.

So, "The Odd Couple" concludes its four seasons, in grand style. Jack and Tony were always amazing together. They loved each other as much as Oscar and Felix did. Read morePublished 12 months ago by ricardo_guerrero
