Default Top 10 Perfect Strangers Picks

Having been a devoted PS fan since the 80's, I agree with everyone who says we need all 150 episodes on DVD as opposed to 6. Nevertheless, it's important to work with what we have and get the best episodes out there so fans will demand more. Having reviewed all the episodes, I carefully selected the 10 that I think best represent the show.

1. Just Desserts -- Episode 44 (Season 3)
This hilarious episode has it all--Myposian culture as well as physical, verbal, and musical comedy. "You bet your Bibbibabkas" became a catchphrase after this one.

2. The Selling of Mypos -- Episode 87 (Season 5)
I can't believe more people aren't voting for this. How can we forget the Hongi Bongi!!

3. Citizenship I/II -- Episodes 128/129 (Season 7)
Bronson Pinchot in a dual role as Balki and his Mama couldn't be funnier; plus it's the only episode where we see the island of Mypos.

4. Going Once, Going Twice -- Episode 134 (Season 7)
Bar none, the best example of physical talent on the show; it's amazing the lengths they went to to protect that bottle of wine.

5. Hunks Like Us -- Episode 8 (Season 2)
This classic one draws you in from start to finish. You can just feel their pain from the workout; also the first appearance of Jennifer and Mary Anne.

6. The Baby Shower -- Episode 145 (Season 8)
High on the Midolcrampabloatalos root, Balki and Larry were never crazier.

7. The Ring -- Episode 105 (Season 6)
The way they sneak around the girls to switch diamond rings is priceless and makes this episode unique.

8. Stress Test -- Episode 140 (Season 7)
Put Larry and Balki in a psychiatric clinic together and you get everything from musical renditions to temper tantrums.

9. Blast from the Past -- Episode 90 (Season 5)
I laughed a lot at this episode. If there were ever a third Perfect Stranger, Marvin Burmon would be him.

10. Wild Turkey -- Episode 130 (Season 7)
It took them until the 7th season to make a Thanksgiving episode, but there's no funnier holiday episode than this one.

Honorable Mention -- The Lottery -- Episode 51 (Season 4)
I know everyone loves this one, and I wish I could have fit it on my list, but Wild Turkey is slightly better in my opinion.

Default Thrilled about Perfect Strangers DVD

I am absolutely thrilled to hear that Warner Bros. will be coming out with a Perfect Strangers DVD. I wonder why they haven't done this before.....it was such a TV favorite and many of the other, less popular TV shows are already on DVD. This show was absolutely histerical. With great writing and superbly- talented actors with perfect chemistry, it was destined for greatness and leaves fond memories in my heart and mind. I can't wait to buy it! Here are my 10 favorite episodes:

#1 - Piano Movers
#2 - Pipe Dreams
#3 - The Lottery
#4 - Assertive Training
#5 - Just Desserts
#6 - Night School Confidential
#7 - Better Shop Around
#8 - Games People Play
#9 - Climb Every Bilboard
#10 - Car Wars

Thanks to everyone who contributed! The episode selection process is now over. And we are very pleased by the turnout! WHV will let us know which episodes will make it on this set. It will most likely be 6 of the top 10 you all picked. I'll try to get WHV to mention somewhere in the packaging "episodes hand-picked by fans at SitcomsOnline.com" so everyone here gets their due. And to all the newbies who came by, we hope you continue to post and/or browse the boards.
Stay tuned for the final results of the top 10 later today.

Here are the final episodes that will be passed on to WHV for selection.

1. "The Lottery"
2. "Pipe Dreams"
3. "Just Desserts"
4. "Knock Knock, Who's There?"
5. "Piano Movers"
6. "Hunks Like Us"
7. "The Elevator"
8. "Up on a Roof"
9. "Aliens"
10. "Tooth or Consequences"

"This New House" will also be submitted as a back-up, if "The Elevator" doesn't make the final cut, so we get 'something' from the final two seasons, which has been rarely seen since the original airings on ABC. It's up to WHV on that.

We can expect 6 of those 10 episodes probably on the set! I omitted the two-part episodes that were highly ranked (Snow Way to Treat a Lady and Up Up and Away) since then it would be likely we would have gotten cheated with only 5 episodes, as the 2-parter would have counted as 2 episodes.
Thanks again for everyone's help and please buy the set when it comes out on June 27!

Now That I think of it they should have just released the first 6 episodes that way we would have had The Complete First Season and it would cost the same to make as a favorites collection and would also test the waters...
