Best episodes aren't included
I'm dissatisfied. 0 stars. We all pay additional monthly subscription fees to ABC that provides access to the "Odd Couple" series, in addition to paying our Prime membership (Prime Video) subscription.
Yet episode 1, the start of this series, as well as many of the best shows that we remember anticipate and that provide continuity for this iconic series are excluded.
Also, there's no option on Prime to pay more to another source to view the entire series, if you decide to and can afford to support the growing greed. Soon there will be another carve out.
Just wait for it and pay for it.

Great Show, Sadly Limited Episodes
I looked up this series, hoping all episodes would be intact on Prime. When i saw the highest rating was only 3 stars, i knew something was up because no one would rate The Odd Couple anything less than 5 stars. I'm disappointed that they still have copyright issues here, they just had to remove or chop up such a wonderful show. What is the point of so many years of not being able to come to an agreement to release this sitcom intact, so fans can finally enjoy the show whole? I'd rather not watch it ever again. TV sure isn't what it used to be.

Sad excuse for a paid subscription
Paying to watch a "series" and having wonderful episodes excluded is a travesty! It is like ordering a BLT and getting a sandwich with no bacon or tomato in it! Thanks for NOTHING!!!

CLASSIC 70s SITCOM
The Odd Couple aired for five seasons from 1970 to 1975. It was a staple of my childhood and has become a cultural icon. I absolutely loved the show, although I occasionally had to ask my mother to interpret aspects for me, like why was it so peculiar that two divorced men were living together, anyway? It starred Tony Randall as OCD neatnik photographer Felix Unger and Jack Klugman as slob sportswriter Oscar Madison.

Absolutely hilarious. Highly recommend.

Missing Episodes
I like the shows it allows you to have but there are so many missing episodes. I will be discontinuing this subscription. It is poorly put together and does not offer all the episodes of any of the great shows it offers. This should be FREE!!!

Great show, but one star for Paramount +
They should call it Paramount Minus since so many episodes are missing from this series. What is the point of a PAID subscription if you only get a few episodes? Do better, Paramount.

Best series ever
Not sure why everyone is whining about the missing episodes - only a few are missing really. This is such a great show. I could watch it 24/7, such great laughs.

Good job Sherlock
Very much like Sherlock Holmes and Watson only where Watson was the sloppy roommate instead. So not an original concept by any stretch of the imagination. However there are those people who ARE sloppy and disregard taking out the trash and all that and maybe that needed to be addressed. So the series is brilliant . My late grandmother used to watch this thing and I'd watch it with her and over old stopher's TV chicken dinners we'd watch this together in the old old days and laugh. And I loved it. This was the stuff all right. The stuff that made you think and laugh. And I love it. And always will.
