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.

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars A "TREAT" (IF NOT A "MUST") FOR HOLLAND TAYLOR FANS August 21, 2013
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Still love this show February 25, 2011
Verified Purchase
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.
