    ...So wheres J.D and Turk.

  • Nicole_OCTV

    I just want to know where I can get a ribbon announcing my celebrity status like the ones that Boatman, Salenger and Ruck are wearing. I'm sure that they hated wearing them, but it doesn't make them look any less stupid in that picture.

  • Amanda

    Sherlock and Watson are really the original Odd Couple.

  • I submit Miles and Sawyer as cops, or Ben and Hurley , from the last season of Lost. The Time-Crossed Alternate Reality "Odd Couple

  • lowercase_ryan


  • phase10

    Interesting list, but the application of "Odd Couple" seems a little bit of a stretch. Wasn't the original premise that the couple really didn't see eye-to-eye on most things? I'm not familiar with every entry, but most seem to be different shades of the same color.

  • Three_nineteen

    Stuart and Carter actually fit the Odd Couple mode. They even live together! By the way, are they ever going to bring Boatman back on The Good Wife? They should, preferably when Michael J. Fox is a guest star, and then Alan Ruck could join them. And Richard Kind, he's probably at loose ends since Luck was cancelled. And Carla Gugino just finished a mini-arc on New Girl...

  • dizzylucy

    Great. Now I remember how much I missed Better Off Ted.

  • Captain_Tuttle

    Get thee to Netflix streaming, stat.

  • foolsage

    Sigh. Me too.

  • Bedewcrock

    seriously. loved it. still can't find anyone to relive the best bits from that with. one day i'll find them!

  • True_Blue

    What, you haven't found one on Pajiba? My favorite bits were the Veridian commercials and the episode about non-black people detecting sensors.

  • Mr_Zito

    Stuart is doing all the ageing for Carter.

  • Pants-are-a-must

    Also not anymore, Julian Barratt and Noel Fielding as the surreal "Odd Couple". It pains me to write this "not anymore," because nothing will be as heart warming as the Boosh.

  • Morgan_LaFai

    Dude, you're killing me here. When did they officially split. I know they haven't done anything together in a while but I thought they had plans to get back together eventually.

  • Pants-are-a-must

    Barratt and Fielding never officially split, but they've been waffling for years now. I sincerely doubt we're getting new Boosh.

  • Rochelle

    I saw Jonathan Slavin and Michael Barret, and thought, "Better off Ted is back in the air?!? Yay!" And then I read the title. But I would watch a series about them. They'd need Ted and Veronica to really make it work.

  • Uriah_Creep

    Ten million upvotes. That was one of my favorite shows. Ever.

  • Pants-are-a-must

    Used to, but sadly not anymore: Chris O'Dowd and Richard Ayoade as the British "Odd Couple".

  • Morgan_LaFai

    When did it officially end? Last I checked they were still thinking about another season. Did all the stars get to busy or something?

  • Pants-are-a-must

    Yes, the creator of "The IT Crowd" confirmed there would be no more series. :(

  • AngelenoEwok

    Hey, I know someone on this list! Cool!

    Also: After last night, how about Vincent Piazza and Anatol Yusef? I would happily watch a whole show just about those guys.

  • Tinkerville

    Domenick Lombardozzi and Seth Gilliam -- YES. Someone make this happen. I'd also add Adam Scott and Aubrey Plaza as the Washington DC Goobers "Odd Couple."
