Ranking The Best Television Shows From The 1970’s

23. The Odd Couple (1970-75)

The Odd Couple was originally a Broadway play written by famed creator Neil Simon. We’ve since seen a number of iterations — whether in film or on television (primarily with the late Jack Lemmon/Walter Matthau). However, Garry Marshall decided to transition this play into a series, which lasted five years. The duo of Jack Klugman and Tony Randall brought many of the dynamics shown in the play. The two had wonderful chemistry with one another, and it left the audience truly believing that there was some sort of real-life disdain for one another. In total, the series lasted a whopping 114 episodes.
