Friends Felix and Os­car are try­ing to get along one last time.

TV Plus (South Africa) - - COMEDY -

The Odd Cou­ple Sea­son 3 Thurs­days (from 1 June) M-Net Dec 17:00/ Sat (*101) 18:00

“There is so much go­ing on,” teases Matthew Perry, sports ra­dio host Os­car in The Odd Cou­ple (20152017). “We wanted Os­car to grow up and be in a com­mit­ted re­la­tion­ship and have some­thing to do, like save this bar that he loves so much.” “And don’t for­get Felix,” says Thomas Lennon, who plays Os­car’s long-suf­fer­ing neat-freak roomie. Just be­cause the 13- episode third sea­son is the last for the pair doesn’t mean that the sticky sit­u­a­tions they find them­selves in will be dry­ing up ei­ther. “It’s go­ing to be a rocky ride,” adds ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer Bob Daily. At least these ob­sta­cles will have you laugh­ing…

1 LONDON CALLING (episode 1) It’s a few months af­ter sea­son 2 ended (in May 2016) and Felix is hat­ing his long- dis­tance re­la­tion­ship with Emily (Lind­say Sloane), who’s in London. Worse, he’s got to watch on as Os­car woos Char­lotte (Teri Hatcher) with a soppy ser­e­nade from cameo­ing RnB group Boyz II Men. 2 I KID, YOU NOT (episode 3, 15 June) Peren­nial kid hater Os­car tries to prove his love by adding “daddy ma­te­rial” to his CV. He takes Char­lotte’s son Evan (Caleb Brown) trick- or-treat­ing for Hal­loween and loses the boy mid-treat.

3 TAFFY DAYS (episode 4, 22 June) The episode pays trib­ute to Garry Mar­shall, writer, cre­ator and pro­ducer of the show and its pre­vi­ous ver­sions The Odd Cou­ple (1970-1975) and The New Odd Cou­ple (1982-1983). His “role” is as Os­car’s dead dad and there’s a cameo from di­rec­tor Ron Howard as Os­car’s lawyer Stan­ley. Garry passed away from com­pli­ca­tions af­ter suf­fer­ing a stroke in July 2016.

4 SHOULD SHE STAY OR SHOULD SHE GO? (episode 10, 3 Au­gust) Felix’s one-night-stand Natasha (Busy Phillips) is a prob­lem lover when she re­fuses to leave.

5 CON­SCIOUS ODD COU­PLING (se­ries fi­nale episode 13, 24 Au­gust) The boys’ spat sees them “break up” and Felix finds a new roomie in Neil (Parvesh Cheena). But Neil gets on Felix’s nerves and Os­car, be­ing the nice guy that he is, saves the day by mov­ing back in.

Felix (left) and Os­car liv­ing to­gether is com­ing to an end.
