    I like Thomas Lennon and thought he was great. Matthew doesn't work as Oscar. The show wasn't very good. Too bad.

    I watched it. Matthew Perry seemed stilted in the role.

    I was disappointed.

    I never saw the original Odd Couple but I watched this cause it came on after Big Bang Theory. I thought the compulsively neat guy was funnier than Matthew's character.

    I heard it wasn't great, so I tuned expecting the worst. And because I expected the worst I was surprised that it didn't suck as bad as I thought it would. Yes, Matthew Perry is not a great Oscar, but maybe he will warm into the role. Lennon was a very good Felix. I'll watch again and hope it gets better.

    I was not a fan of the orginal, Tony Randall grated on my nerves, but the premise has promise with the right team.

    I wasn't a big fan of the original either.

    I watched it the other night and thought it was funny. Matthew Perry and Thomas Lennon were hilarious together in the movie 17 Again so I think this will work.

    I watched the premier and thought is sucked. Matthew Perry seemed to be yelling his lines, the other guy was okay. Def won't be watching it again.
