Definitely one of their best!
16 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This brilliantly written, tailor made episode for the Randall-Klugman pairing phenomenon never fails to make he howl with laughter.. Perfectly set-up! Sportswriter Oscar is assigned to cover and review a play, a genre of which he knows nothing or could care less, but shrewdly finds a way to trick his arts aficionado roommate Felix into doing it but without telling him about the job assignment. Oscar's boss is pleased, so much so that he assigns Oscar the task full-time until the regular critic returns. Felix eventually finds out and refuses to write any more reviews which leads to the amazing chemistry friendship by which Oscar is able to convince Felix to continue handling the assignment. But when Oscar is asked to participate on a televised panel with other theater critics, is really when the fun begins. Felix's appearance on the panel alongside Oscar really shows off the artistry of Tony Randall, whose performance truly goes beyond the scope of real, convincing acting, and this segment could not have been done better in more than one take and have had the same effect. Well worth watching, and the cameo appearance of Neil Simon who takes Felix's pen is the perfect detail to an already brilliant episode. Enjoy!
