I don't get it!!

"They're cutting out some of the best parts! For instance, the "Gloria Moves Back in" episode. The poker game in the hotel room, when Felix starts singing "One More for the Road", and everyone joins in. Hysterical. It's not there! I know these episodes so well, you can't fool me. I know what's missing. I feel like these DVDs are just like the episodes I taped on my VCR years ago from TV. I might as well watch those and save my money! I don't even care about the extra bonus stuff, just give me the complete episode."
CBS/Paramount blows it again!

"It breaks my heart to have to give 1 star to my all-time favorite show, but this is just another brutal job of artistic butchery by the empty suits at CBS/Paramount.
If you're familiar with the CBS/Paramount debacle on removing ALL music from The Fugitive (see the horrible reviews here on Amazon), then you know that CBS/Paramount has taken an exteremely lame tact: instead of even TRYING to settle music clearance issues, they have instead opted to avoid any POSSIBLE payments by simply cutting out ALL music on the show. Whoever their counsel is that advised them to do this, he should be out of a job.
The cuts are just ridiculous, and have been well documented by others here. I mean, isn't there such a thing as Fair Use? Felx sings ONE LINE of The Banana Boat song (Day-O) to wake up Oscar. Gone. Oscar is offered $500 to be in Felix's movie. His response: "I'm Gonna Be in Pictures" - ONE LINE. Gone.
I can see a few popular songs having to go due to expensive royalties, but it seems that Paramount is now taking an overly cautious and downright lazy approach and instead of dealing with the issue at all, they have decided to just cut the whole damn thing out, fans be damned.
I will NEVER, NEVER buy another CBS/Paramount product unless they rectify this. Put out a deluxe set for hradcore fans with all of the music put back in. I'd buy it, regardless of cost."

"Shameful and disgusting!...
As much as I love the TV show "THE ODD COUPLE", I will give Paramount a one star rating (and that is a lot!) just because of their DVD episode butchering that is so evident throughout all of their Odd Couple DVD season box set releases.
Personally, and I am 100% certain this is true for all Odd Couple fans, I would have paid twice as much and even more if necessary just to have the complete episodes as they were intended to be.
The Odd Couple is a classic American TV show and a part of American television's evolution, heritage and history. They do not make television shows like this anymore. The Odd Couple should not have been butchered at all! A lot of love and care should have been given to every single one of the Odd Couple episode releases. Apparently, there was not the slightest consideration given to the artistic devotion and integrity of everyone involved in this great TV show.
Thanks but no thanks!...
I'll pass!... :- (
Cuts and more cuts

"I have to agree that Paramount is not doing a good job with securing music rights. The episode, "Gloria Moves In" was one of the ones where Felix starts singing and the rest of the group joins in. It's funny, but it is cut. Very obvious. I also much rather prefer they leave the original Paramount Logo at the end with "A Gulf & Western Company." I don't need to be reminded that its now CBS/Paramount."
