The talk of Buffalo on another site made me think of one of my favorite episodes of the Odd Couple, when Felix moves to Buffalo. I couldn't find that episode online, but did find this gem.

Lead...Graphite!

The Password episode was one of my favorites. I also liked the episode where Felix and Oscar go bowling - and Felix hears the voice of God (the lane attendant). I can't find that one, but this is also a classic...

I was really hoping that hulu.com would have episodes of Odd Couple.

WKRP in Cicninnati....check.
Barney Miller....check.
Welcome Back, Kotter....check. (a show that does not hold up at all, BTW)
I Dream of Jeannie.....check.

No damned Odd Couple.

i believe that Mr Klugman and Mr Randall somehow managed to own the rights to the show, and have managed to keep it only on DVD and are most litigous about it.

I know Randall is still alive and breeding, but somehow I thought Klugman kicked the bucket.

Scratch that. Reverse it.

Mr. Randall died in 2004 - leaving behind a young wife and an almost equally young daughter. Mr. Klugman is still ticking - and, for all I know, has the potential to breed.

While double-checking this information, I did see that this fine episode (while not the Odd Couple) is available for free online!

I am sure that hulu.com pays a licensing fee for use of the shows that they air. They do air commercials (fewer than standard television). So, they would, theoretically, be generating revenue - without the hassle of producing, packaging, marketing and distributing DVDs.

There are some older shows that are just tough to find - Get Smart comes to mind. When they finally released the complete seasons on DVD, there was enough pent up demand that they didn't have to discount them heavily - like a lot of shows that you can find for ~$10/season.

I don't doubt what you say about the rights be tightly held. Another particular one that comes to mind is The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson - very little old footage ever leaks out from that, too.

At least I can still watch Charles in Charge episodes for free online.

Huh. Who knew?

I knew the part about the rich old guys...and also understand why younger women in search of riches would date an old dude...but why would a younger woman, with no apparent want for money, be associated with this or any old dude?

The fact he is a dick and an egomaniac just adds to the confusion.

Someone please explain.

This story makes me wonder who cocaine-fueled Martina Hingis is banging now?

And it makes me think what Carling Bassett and Gabriela Sabatini would look like. Together.

pardon me for being racist, but the first thing I thought of when I saw that was:

oh no, it's the other Williams sister.


is that racist, or just mean? I was going for mean, but I'm not sure.
