A slapstick "buddy comedy" that explored the wonderment of a newly arrived immigrant at the ways of America- "The Land of the Whopper." Balki was a young sheperd from the Mediterranean island of Mypos, who showed up unexpectedly at the Chicago apartment of his distant cousin, bachelor Larry. Balki's wide-eyed, fun-loving manner, his nutty myposian customs, and his tendency to take everything American's told him quite literally, promised considerable disruption to Larry's organized life, but Larry took him in. After all, getting started as a sheperd in Chicago was not going to be easy.]]>

The new DVD box set from Warner Bros. containing the first two seasons of the hit series allows longtime fans and newcomers alike to rediscover this wonderful, often overlooked sitcom gem from the 1980s. The premise of the series is simple and attractive. At the start of the pilot episode, Larry had just moved from his crowded childhood home in Madison, Wisconsin, to an apartment in Chicago, where he planned to make it as a photojournalist. To pay his bills, he found a job working at a discount store for the heartless Mr. Twinkacetti. One evening, a distant cousin shows up at his door, bearing his possessions in a box mislabeled "America or Burst.Read more ›
I'll admit that the show fell into a slow decline by season 5, and when they moved out of the apartment and into that house by season 7, the show completely fell apart. However, the first four seasons are killer. I discovered the show by accident early in season 2 and fell in love with it.
Classic episodes besides the hilarious first two; Gina's baby, Balki & baseball, Meeting Jennifer & Mary Anne, Las Vegas, Balki's dream, the Mypos diet, Balki's cable TV addiction, the Ex-Con photographer & moving Lydia's piano. Yo, Warner Brothers, get on the ball and release this show on DVD so all us fans can re-live these moments......thank God they finally did. Can't wait for season three, let's hope.
Perfect Strangers was one of the funniest shows of all time. It is a show I can watch without being embarrassed. I cannot understand why so many shows are coming out on DVD that were essentially failures as TV shows.
I want my Perfect Stangers now!!
You need to release Perfect Strangers on DVD. Classic show that many Generation X'ers and some members of Generation Y grew up on this show. People will buy the DVD because of nostalgia. Hot item! Mark Linn Baker is on a new WB show. If the show succeeds and gets renewed, wouldn't it be great for him to promote the DVD too? I am one of many fans of the show who regret not taping the show. We want our episodes, our favorite characters, our favorite TV show to be available to us, please!

Funniest show of the 80's ! A sitcom your whole family can watch.
It's so cruel to fans of Perfect Strangers that more seasons haven't been released yet, though

|The answer on why there has been such a holdup?||
I just bought this, watched a few episodes, and Balki is singing a number of hit songs. So what is the deal? Did the costs just go up recently? There should be some kind of reasonable compromise. The songwriters should be paid....but they use VERY short snippets of the songs.

|perfect strangers tv series (1986)||
I bought a full set of DVD from TVDVDPlanet and they were dubbed from TV and poorly for that matter. I dont know if all the DVDs they sell are also dubbed from TV.The price is quite high for something poorly dubbed from TV snd then you will have to add about USD 50 for posting.
