I never realized he was such a bad actor! I just watched the new "The Odd Couple", and he was REALLY bad!!

The show's kinda cute----same names, jobs, circumstances, etc., as the old show----and, even the guy who plays Felix sort-of reminds me of the original (Tony Randall); but, I really don't think I'll be watching it, again.....

I never cared for the original.

Remakes of shows rarely are worth it. I don't think the actor is much to blame...he's set in a role with little room for improvement.

I did watch the first episode just recently, and in all honesty, I was more taken with the actor who absolutely captured Tony Randal's Felix Unger, that I actually had paid little attention to Perry.

Yeah, I know wha'cha mean..... That guy that plays Felix, had me a bit mesmerized, really----he was GREAT!! I'm thinking that must be how Matthew Perry became a star----other people carrying him, I guess. The writing was pretty good, too!! It's a shame, though, cuz I'd probably watch it, for "Felix", but.....

Thomas Lennon was hilarious on Reno 911! and stole every scene in A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas. If I ever watch this new Odd Couple, it'll be for him rather than for Matthew Perry.

HOLY SH*T! I had forgotten that was Thomas Lennon playing Felix! The man is a comedy genius.
