Critic Consensus: Stars Matthew Perry and Thomas Lennon make a fine Oscar and Felix, but The Odd Couple's flat jokes and canned laughter are pretty old hat.

Critic Reviews for The Odd Couple Season 1

All Critics (34) | Top Critics (25)

It's impossible to say how the show will progress from here, but it's hard to believe that it will ever feel anything other than remarkably familiar and derivative of better properties with better casts.

As it turns out, Perry is fine as Oscar, but the show is only intermittently funny.

The casting is more intriguing than the jokes are funny. It remains to be seen whether the remake succeeds on its own or is just a curiosity for devotes of the earlier adaptation.

I'm not quite hooked. And if others feel the same way and with the overabundance of TV options today, then that doesn't bode well for The Odd Couple.

I really, really wanted to like this pilot and the truth is, I didn't. But, that's not to say that I won't give the series a bit of a chance.

The problem? Maybe it's the speed with which all this unfolds, but too often in this first episode things feel awkward, as if the dialogue were written mostly to set up jokes, and therefore the character part of the story seems forced.

Perry and Lennon are good in their respective roles and have certainly got the talent to bring this to life. Let's hope they do before everyone switches off.

Unlikely friends mock each other endlessly in stale sitcom.

Feb 25, 2015 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

Much of The Odd Couple's pilot episode pays homage to its source material... but Perry and Lennon seem to have fun with this modern-day retelling, despite the decades-old story at its core.

Feb 24, 2015 | Full Review…

Friends veteran Matthew Perry, who helped develop this version and serves as executive producer, might just be the weakest Oscar of any version.
