Product Description

Kip and Henry work at an advertising agency as an artist and writer respectively. When the apartment that they were living in was condemned, they had no place to live. So Amy their co-worker, who has a crush on Henry, suggests that they stay with her but the only the problem is that it's for girls only. So they get into drag and assume the personas of Buffy and Hildegarde. When Kip meets Sonny, Amy's attractive roommate, he is smitten and when they learn that there's a vacancy in the building, Kip convinces Henry to take it so he can be close to Sonny, and so that this experience might be good material for a book that Henry can write.

Amazon.com

Bosom Buddies' high-concept premise (two displaced friends don dresses so they can live in a "dirt cheap" hotel for women) was ridiculous. Listening to costars Tom Hanks and Peter Scolari narrate the opening credits ("…but they also know us as Kip and Henry, Buffy and Hildy's brothers"), you got the feeling that they thought so, too. The immensely appealing and likeable duo had emerged as a crack comedy team worthy of better, and the second eason accommodates them with an unprecedented premise-wrecking about-face. In the season opener, Kip (Hanks) reveals his secret to Sonny (Donna Dixon), the girl of his dreams. ("Ain't this a shocker, huh?"), and Henry (Scolari) follows suit. No problem. Aspiring singer Isabelle (Telma Hopkins), promoted to hotel manager (farewell, Lucille Benson), allows them to stay. Further, Kip and Henry leave their ad agency and set up their own commercial production house. In short, there is much less cross-dressing this season and a lot more Airplane-style scattershot pop culture cross-references ranging from Noel Coward and Philip Roth to Slim Whitman and the Ozzie Nelson family. The ensemble's (including Holland Taylor and the late, great Wendie Jo Sperber) infectiously silly improvisational byplay recalls Robin Williams' mad riffs on Mork and Mindy, and freshen up such sitcom staples as the flashback episode, the imagine-us-when-we're-old episode, and the inevitable variety-show episode (with special guest Penny "Laverne" Marshall, who would direct Hanks to his first Oscar nomination in Big).

Bosom Buddies is mostly madcap, but some genuinely moving moments took the series to another level. In "The Reunion," one of the series' best episodes, a guilt-stricken Henry apologizes to the deaf girl he stood up at their high school prom, and "Kip off the Old Block" fades out on Kip's admission that he is afraid of growing up. Enjoyable in its own right, Bosom Buddies is best remembered today as the career launching pad for Hanks. Revisiting it is like paging through an old high school yearbook and marveling at the phenomenal success of the former class clown. Hanks for the memories. --Donald Liebenson

Been a fan of the show since its debut on television: It's witty and silly at times, but quite funny.

Unfortunately, this DVD release is a major disappointment: the opening theme has been changed for some inexplicable reason and some of the episodes have been edited... Why???

Didn't realize this until after my purchase... The Amazon description makes no mention of this, but the back of the DVD packaging does in fine print:

"Some music has been changed for this home entertainment version. Some episodes may be edited from their original network versions."

Again, Why????

Needless to say, I'm going to email Paramount Home Entertainment and try to find out why they did this hatchet job on the show.

Clearly I would never have made it as a Hollywood producer! When I first saw this show, I developed an instant crush on Peter Scolari and thought Holland Taylor was wonderful. For me, Mr. Hanks was always the capable tertium quid. Go figure. I still adore Ms. Taylor and am delighted that she finally got worthier material in TWO-AND-A-HALF-MEN and recently I enjoyed her turn on Broadway as Ann Richards. The show itself was never well-written. The plotting was so lame, in many episodes the actors actually seem to be struggling just to fill in the 20-minutes of air time. Also, the show's lessened impact on DVD also suggests that Billy Joel's now-replaced theme song probably drew in more viewers that the show itself. But it's still worthwhile watching Holland Taylor overcoming often mediocre material with such panache!

Yep, I am NOT afraid to admit I have always loved this show.

Silly, a cheesy story line.

But, it was funny.

Of course, the beginning of Hanks career.

More scenes & lines I remember. Love Dot.

For then future TV references the makers of the show were the makers of "Full House". You will note any "Full House" fans in the episode where Danny & Joey go back to college in a prank they are dress just like Tom & Peter wore. Cue the wardrobe department, same dresses? "Not The Last Picture Show" showing the cast in the future. They did that on "Full House" as well.

And, on the DVD, where is Billy Joel's "My Life"?

I still remember scenes & can quote lines. Episode one "Macho Man".

To me, just as funny today as when first aired.

This 1981-82 Season was when this sitcom about 2 roommates Kip(Tom Hanks, Henry(Peter Scolari) struggling to make ends up, living a double life by living in a ladies only apartment was cancelled after its 2-year run on ABC, due to weak ratings, but this show still takes me back to memory lane to when I watched it as a kid every Thursday night on ABC until it was cancelled in the Summer of 1982 when Ronald Reagan was president and we had all those budget cuts from the recession we had going on from 1981-1982, but it was brought back on the air temporarily to NBC in reruns on Saturday nights back in the Summer of 1984.

I also used to watch this show in reruns on ME-TV, TV Land, and USA too.

Not a big fan of show just a casual one. However, I bought it as gift for someone who was recording the reruns. He loved it. It was obvious in this sit-com that Tom Hanks was going be a huge star. Even Peter Scolari had moderate success. Most of the other cast members did go on the other shows. If you liked this show it is a must buy.

I liked watching this series when it was on tv. Now that I have this season on dvd, I have the complete series. I like watching Tom Hanks make a fool of himself on this show. I do recommend this set to anyone who has seen the series in the past and liked it.

I absolutely loved this show when it originally aired in the 1980's and I have fond memories of it even still. But as is so often the case things aren't always as wonderful as we remember them. Watching the show now I do find it to be a bit dated, and even some episodes aren't as funny as I'd remembered them to be. With that said however the chemistry between Tom Hanks and Peter Scolari is timeless and still great fun to watch. They seem to have a limitless energy on screen and appear to be genuinely enjoying themselves. I will also say that despite the fact that season two is somewhat disjointed and the show seemed to be shifting direction from it's original premise, it is also the season that contains many of my favorite episodes. Worth mentioning is that like season one the original opening theme song by Billy Joel has been changed to something totally generic. Also, and again like season one, some episodes have scenes omitted that were shown in the original broadcasts. Admittedly though I only noticed this myself in one episode, where a sing along between Kip, Henry, and their two cellmates was omitted from a jail scene. When all is said and done I have great nostalgia for the show and I still enjoyed watching it. If only the powers that be had let the show go for more than two seasons and allowed them the time to develop and grow... who knows how great this little show might have eventually become?
