    Don’t remember ever seeing him in anything I didn’t enjoy. We had Jack Klugman. Now we have Jason Biggs.

      Jason Biggs, the douche of this generation. Hateful, venomous pig. God bless Jack Klugman, one of the greatest actors of all time.

      I know, right? How far the talent has sunk! The Odd Couple was probably the funniest show ever (well, in my opinion) and it was done without sex, violence, profanity or the ever present annoying social issue episode that’s so prevelant today. I miss Oscar and Felix! Two fabulous actors who were tailored made for those roles. RIP Jack Klugman.

    He was Quincy, too! I loved that show when I was a kid! You wouldn’t have a lot of popular crime shows today without Quincy.

    ‘Twilight Zone’ is where I first got to know Mr. Krugman. An everyday, average looking guy and consumate, professional Character Actor. Constantly playing variations of his four chord personality and consistently delivering for decades. In television, film and on
    the stage.

    No actor today comes anywhere close to this grand master’s talents. And more’s the pity.

    The world will certainly be less bright and colorful with his passing.

    Quincy was the best TV show from the golden era. Back when TV was entertaining.

    RIP Jack Klugman. I first got to know you while watching The Odd Couple with my Dad and grew to love you even more while watching Quincy, M.E. with my Mom. You helped start my interest in tv comedies and helped my craving for tv mysteries. You were a class act and will be greatly missed. God Speed

    I saw Jack Klugman and Vic Tayback down at the rail at Santa Anita and Hollywood Park on many occasions. There they were just a couple of guys who loved racing, standing in a crowd of like minded punters. If there is racing in Heaven, Jack has already got his spot picked out near the finish line.
