  • Oscar plans a romantic evening with a stewerdess, only to have Felix mess his plans, by becoming sick with a "48 hour" cold

    5.0
    this one really has nothing special to it. even the initial conflict from the begining is solved rapidly, when the woman Oscar is dating takes a liking to Felix, ending the conflict of the "hidding roomate" very early in the episode.

    what saves this episode is the use of the poker buddies, that give some laughs to the episode, especially the scene where they have to shout each play and identify themselves each time they speak, so Felix can hear from the bedroom.

    another amusing note comes near the end, when Oscar gets stuck in a candlelight dinner with Felix, plus 2 guys playing the violin.

    it's true that Felix blows the weekend for Oscar, but in the end of the day you don't feel sorry for him, because it seems just like "one more conquest", there's nothing special about her that would have predicted a long term relationship, had the weekend not gone wrong.

    a fair episode, has a couple of great gags during the poker game, and the next scene in Felix's room, but in my opinion not an above average Odd couple episode
