The Odd Couple is a sitcom that aired on CBS from 2015 to 2017. The show is a modern adaptation of the original 1970s series created by Neil Simon. The show stars Matthew Perry as Oscar Madison, a sports radio host who is recently divorced and messy, and Thomas Lennon as Felix Unger, a fastidious and uptight newspaper writer who is also recently divorced. Oscar and Felix become roommates after their wives kick them out, and their clashing personalities lead to many comedic situations.

The show is set in New York City, and the apartment that Oscar and Felix share serves as the main location for the show. The apartment is messy and disorganized, reflecting Oscar's laid-back personality, while Felix is constantly cleaning and organizing. The show focuses on the interactions between Oscar and Felix, with supporting characters adding to the chaos.

Lindsay Sloane plays Emily, the assistant producer of Oscar's radio show. Emily is often caught up in Oscar and Felix's antics, and she provides a love interest for Felix. Wendell Pierce plays Teddy, a police officer and Oscar's best friend. Teddy often visits the apartment to interrogate Oscar or provide advice in matters of love and life. Yvette Nicole Brown plays Dani, the owner of the building where Oscar and Felix live. Dani is tough and no-nonsense, but she also has a soft spot for the two roommates.

Throughout the show's two seasons, conflicts arise between Oscar and Felix as they navigate their new living situation. Felix's perfectionism clashes with Oscar's laid-back attitude, creating tension in their relationship. Despite their differences, however, the two men share a deep bond and are always there for each other when one of them needs help.

The Odd Couple is filled with witty one-liners and physical comedy. The show's humor is derived from the contrast between Oscar and Felix's personalities, with Oscar often making fun of Felix's uptight nature. However, the show also tackles serious topics such as divorce and depression, adding depth to the characters and their relationships.

The show received mixed reviews from critics. Some praised the chemistry between Perry and Lennon and the show's humor, while others criticized the show for not living up to the original series. Despite the mixed reception, The Odd Couple was popular among audiences and garnered a loyal fan base.

Overall, The Odd Couple is a lighthearted sitcom that provides plenty of laughs. The show's talented cast and witty writing make it an enjoyable watch, whether you're a fan of the original series or new to the story.
