Overview

Season One of Perfect Strangers begins not long after aspiring photographer Larry Appleton (Mark Linn-Baker) has moved out of his family's house (bidding his eight siblings goodbye in the process) and into his own apartment in Chicago. Any hopes of enjoying the life of a carefree bachelor are dashed when Larry's distant cousin Balki Bartokomous (Bronson Pinchot), a sheepherder from the faraway island of Mypos, shows up at Larry's doorstep and promptly moves in with him. The wide-eyed, effusive, easily impressed Balki provides hilarious contrast to the uptight, well-organized Larry, especially when both men dip into the dating pool, and when Balki insists upon honoring one of the many, invariably bizarre Myposian customs. During this season, Larry works at the Ritz Discount Shop, taking orders from his nasty, avaricious boss "Twinkie" (Ernie Sabella) and occasionally from Twinkie's equally abrasive wife Edwina (Belita Moreno). Balki doesn't hold down a regular job, but instead attends night school in hopes of becoming an American citizen. Occasionally, Larry goes out with his upstairs neighbor, nurse Susan Campbell (Lise Cutter). Episode highlights include Balki's first date, a benighted effort by Larry to give Balki driving lessons, and the Myposian immigrant's innocent abuse of his checking-account privileges.

I only watched a few episodes when this show was in syndication years ago but I liked it enough to buy these DVDs and I wasn't disapointed. Each episode had me rolling on the floor laughing. Just buy it.

These guys were wonderful at slapstick! I know I used to watch it, but I didn't remember how funny it was. My kids enjoy it too. It's nice to share it with them, even if I have to explain an occasional 80's reference.

I purchased this as a gift for my cousin in the Airforce. He is heading to Iraq, and he wanted something to watch on his downtime. We both loved the show, so I fought he would enjoy this!
