Picks and Pans Main: Tube

This week sees (he return of one of TV's most distinguished duos. No, not Beany and Cecil. I'm talking about Oscar Madison and Felix Unger as CBS sequelizes The Odd Couple (Fri., Sept. 24, 9 p.m. ET). Though Tony Randall and a vocally challenged Jack Klugman—his voice still ragged since his 1989 throat surgery—are troupers in this TV movie, I wish they hadn't reprised these roles. As with all these reunions of classic shows, it's a sad and exploitive affair. The more I liked the original (as with Get Smart and The Odd Couple), the more I'm offended by the wrinkled revision. Please, leave me alone with my memories, my rerun videotapes and my diet root beer.
