PARAMOUNT has released one of the best tv comedy sitcoms of all time, "THE ODD COUPLE: SEASON ONE." Since the tv series is virtually impossible to find anywhere on cable tv at this time, this long awaited release is certain to win over legions of new fans. Adapted from the hit play and film by Neil Simon, the writing, pacing and acting make this series one of the best adaptations for tv in history. Jack Klugman and Tony Randall make the roles of Oscar and Felix their own. The pairing of sloppy sports writer Oscar with Felix, an immaculate compulsive makes for great scenarios, and in episode after episode, the laughs are plentiful.
PARAMOUNT has provided the correct 1.33:1 aspect ratio. While the image veers towards graininess at times, it's generally decent. While never vibrant, the colors are adequate.
PARAMOUNT has provided a Dolby Digital 2.0 mix. Fidelity is limited. Nothing remarkable here, but at least there's no distortion.
PARAMOUNT has provided commentaries on select episodes, a blooper reel and episode intros.
