Television Without Pity circa 1974

I was watching a rerun of The Odd Couple, which may be my favorite sit-com of all time, last night. Haven't seen one in a while, but was reminded how lazy the writers were.

How many different ways did Oscar and Felix meet again?

Actually, I looked it up.

It's really bizarre how many big errors they made. I'd love to ask the writers if it was cause they didn't care or cause they were stoned.

Rock On,

I'm guessing they were early stoner/slackers. The stoner part might have helped with a persistent need to be "creative" but the slacker meant they didn't give a damn about consistency.

I liked the show too.

Cheers.
