One of the best-remembered episodes of the series
6 February 2011 | by (Exit 7A, New Jersey, United States) – See all my reviews

If this had been an episode of Friends, it would have been called "The One with the Hand Chairs." Felix has an opportunity to get a great deal on new furniture and decides to redecorate the apartment. He comes up with a roomful of Seventies hyper-modern furniture, starring a clock that shows the time by means of a constellation of lighted dots and--yes!--two vinyl-upholstered chairs shaped like a pair of hands. They may be among the best-remembered props in television history. Naturally Oscar can't live with the stuff and replaces it with furnishings from "Sam-Sam the Discount Man." Not the most complex plot ever, but the episode is a nice blend of sight gags and a typical complement of laugh lines. The NFL's Bubba Smith is on hand for the celebrity cameo that ABC had apparently made near-mandatory by this point in the series' life to try to hype the ratings. If you're a fan of Felix and Oscar, you probably know this episode; for everyone else it's a pretty good example of the show's charm.
