A solid start
26 August 2017 | by studioATSee all my reviews

After three slightly off centre shows (Studio 60, Mr Sunshine, Go On) didn't get beyond their first series, Matthew Perry in his own words decided to "give audiences what they want" and therefore tried to return to TV again in this re-imagining of Neil Simon's classic play 'The Odd Couple'.

This pilot is good fun, though the first few scenes are a bit laboured. There was lots of negative comments about Perry's performance at the time, but I thought he was good here as sloppy Oscar (perhaps people expected him to be Felix who is closer to 'Chandler'), though hugely outshone by Thomas Lennon as Felix.

There's some nice usage of classic lines from the original play, and although the supporting cast don't get much of a look in (though it's always lovely to see Lindsay Sloane)this pilot at least displayed that the show had potential.
