Thursdays, 8:30 PM ET on CBS
Reboot of the classic series about the messy Oscar Madison and the neat-freak Felix Unger, who are roommates.
Wamp wamp. Among a pile of other problems, the laugh track ruins a potentially decent comedy duo again.Thomas Lennon as a metrosexual neat freak is funny but everyone being divorced and missing their partners creates no balance. Oh, and the hot chick in the building just wants sex...original. So disappointing.
No, no, no, and even more no. These two actors, Matthew Perry and Thomas Lennon just don't work well together. What makes it worse is that god awful laugh track that is being forced on the viewer. It's as if the writers are telling you when to laugh, because clearly the jokes just aren't funny. This pilot episode is not a disaster, but it isn't a hit either. I'm not saying skip it. I'm saying that if you have a spare half hour, give it a go. If not for entertainment, then background noise.
