TV show description:
Based on the Neil Simon stage comedy (which later spawned movie and a couple TV show incarnations), this sitcom revolves around two single friends who are trying to figure out how to live together without killing each other.
Endearing slob Oscar Madison (Matthew Perry) is a sports-writer and uptight neat freak Felix Unger (Thomas Lennon) is a photographer. They’re two former college buddies who become unlikely roommates after the demise of their marriages. Felix has been kicked out by his wife Ashley while Oscar’s ex Gaby (Lauren Graham) divorced him because of he’s such a slob. Felix still has feelings for Ashley while Oscar is happier without Gaby but does miss his kids.
It’s not long after Oscar agrees to let Felix move in with him that Oscar’s fear that he’s made a monumental mistake is realized. However, despite how exasperated they make each other, these mismatched friends agree they can help each other move on from their divorces and somehow make their crazy living arrangement work.
Oscar and Felix try to date Casey (Leslie Bibb) and Emily (Lindsay Sloane) — two attractive sisters who are roommates in the same building. They are also both recently divorced.
In addition, Oscar holds poker games regularly and one of the players being Teddy (Wendell Pierce), an extremely naive policeman. Dani (Yvette Nicole Brown), Oscar’s assistant, attempts to keep his life in order but it’s a losing battle.
