  • Dance of Joy: Merry Montage of Balki and Larry's signature two-step throughout the show's first two seasons

Synopsis


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. ~ Hal Erickson

    This is possibly the funniest sitcom in TV history! Balki and Larry are hilarious together! I love how well they work with each other and how well they bounce jokes off one another. Maryanne and Jennifer are wonderful additions as well. Very pretty indeed.

    A clean, funny 80's sitcom that although feels dated, is fun to watch and makes one reminisce about a simpler era. The show might seem corny now, but not for the time period. I like the show's Chicago setting.

    Perfect Strangers was one of our favorite TV shows. Now we can enjoy it anytime. Hoping they will soon release the rest of the episodes on DVD so I can complete the collection.

    Larry and Balki are two cousins from very opposite backgrounds. They bring many laughs in this classic sitcom.
