Perfect Strangers - The Complete First and Second Seasons

On DVD tomorrow!

Holy shit, the man's gonna have so many more reasons to hate my Netflix abuse! (Yesterday we got "Little Monsters" and a docu called "God Told Me To" about murderers, neither of which I remember even putting on the q, let alone moving to the top.)

I can't sink any dollars into this, but someone out there please tell me that the episode guide descriptions actually fit the episodes. I just need to know.

Oh, they do, but in a really saccharine way. Like how a Library of Congress summary fits a novel.

The first guy I dated, pretty much the only reason I came to his house is because he had some Perfect Strangers episodes he'd taped as a kid.

Thank god, the Balki B video is still on YouTube for instant roffles, so to repost:

My brother just emailed me:

I remembered that perfect strangers is on AOL TV. At least some episodes. So I decided to see if that second episode of their winter expedition and cabin avalanche was on there. Of course the episode is not on there but the first part is! Will we EVER find out what really happened? Will I ever forgive mom and dad for taking us from grandma's house the one time it actually comes on tv? What awful torture must I bear?!

I knew you could sympathize. Thanks. I love you!


P.S. For torture inducing memories, the first episode is here: http://video.aol.com/video-detail/perfect-strangers-snow-way-to-treat-a-lady-part-1/355878549

Being robbed of watching that second episode has been a lifelong grudge we both share.

tuomas if there was an embed for getting a thread to slap someone in the face i would paste it in below even if it inadvertently slapped everyone else who loaded this thread in the face because then it would also slap you in the face for asking such a fundamentally dense question about the very thread in which you were asking it, my gawd

why would tuomas even click on this thread?

A True White Kid that can Jump (Granny Dainger), Friday, 21 February 2014 16:37 (three years ago) Permalink

Because it had a weird title and I was trying to understand what it was about. I read the first 10 posts or so, but I still didn't get it. Who is cousin Larry?

Tuomas, Friday, 21 February 2014 16:39 (three years ago) Permalink

Hey Tuomas, I don't know if you use Chrome, but if you do you can right-click on any pic in the world and click "Search google for this image", which will usually tell you what you're looking at.

Eyeball Kicks, Friday, 21 February 2014 17:13 (three years ago) Permalink

or you could just type "Cousin Larry" into Google

the episode where larry falls asleep for days after drinking a jar of balki’s medicine is the apex of eighties sitcom art

barreras, Friday, 22 December 2017 16:45 (four weeks ago) Permalink

i was watching the first season of Newhart (80s innkeeper one) on Hulu when i had the flu and 80s sitcoms are sort of weirder than today's "weird" sitcoms in a way

one episode literally involved them learning their was a witch buried in their basement and hiring Larry Daryl and Daryl to dig up the bones so they could bury them in the church graveyard, but then Joanna decides she likes having the witch in their basement because she was wrongfully accused so they cancel the job and just keep the witch's bones in their basement

This was a very relatable scenario in the 80s

Embalming is a flirty business (DJP), Friday, 22 December 2017 17:56 (four weeks ago) Permalink

Nothing beats the "magic cave" episode of Punky Brewster for sheer bugfuck 80s sitcom weirdness.
