In-áThe Odd Couple's third, and best yet, season, coarse and crude sportswriter Oscar Madison is dubbed--by a princess, no less--as "Sir Oscar, Nicest of the Nice Guys." His roommate, best friend, and consummate pest, Felix Unger, tells him at one humbling point, "Oscar, you're well above average." Exploring Oscar's softer side no doubt helped earn Jack Klugman an Emmy Award for this season, but rest assured, not all of Oscar's edges have been smoothed out. He's still a slob, his room is still a disaster area, and he is still quick to erupt, which is understandable. As obsessive and overbearing Felix (Tony Randall) himself states, "I drive everybody crazy. I never learn my lesson." With a live studio audience to cheer the actors on, this season provides several show-stopping moments, from Felix and Murray performing a little Gilbert & Sullivan in to Myrna's spectacular tap dance.
