Default Perfect Strangers - The Complete First and Second Seasons DVD Review

For the first time ever, Perfect Strangers is now on DVD! (Get out of the city!) Warner Home Video has finally released the Complete First and Second Seasons of the hilarious ‘80s ABC comedy. Find out how sheepherder Balki Bartokomaus (Bronson Pinchot) from the island of Mypos moved in with his “cousin” Larry Appleton (Mark Linn-Baker) in Chicago and how all the funniness and slapstick started from the beginning. We get all 6 episodes from the series’ short first season and all 22 episodes from the series’ second season all on this four-disc DVD set! In for the fun are Larry and Balki’s boss Mr. Twinkacetti (Ernie Sabella), their friend Susan (Lisa Cutter) and Larry & Balki’s lover interests emerge in the second season with Jennifer (Melanie Wilson) & Mary Anne (Rebecca Arthur)! Also, see Belita Moreno as Mrs. Twinkacetti from time-to-time. Moreno later will join the series in season three as a different character, but more on that whenever that DVD comes out!

Read our review by Cousin Pavan here:

Please post any questions or comments about this set.

There is really no extras but at least the episodes appear to be uncut . I have Amazon prime and got the two day shipping when I pre-ordered back in September and they shipped it on Monday but I live out in the middle of nowhere and am pretty much snowed in right now. So, who knows when I'll get it my copy .

I am SO happy to have this set. I was anxiously waiting, but very disappointed that my local Walmart didn't carry it. No problem, I went to Best Buy and saw they didn't have it on the shelve either. AGH. I had to ask them about it and they found it on the little cart of dvd's not yet put out. I almost had a heart-attack.

Anyways, I'm SO glad I can share these episode with my daughters. She watches almost ALL my tv-on-dvd collections, (Bewitched, I Dream of Jeannie, Brady Bunch, Happy days, Laverne & Shirley, Facts of Life, etc...) She actually says my days had the BEST tv shows. LOL.

By epsiode 2, she was hooked. I am looking forward to going home tonigth and wtching some more with her.

I still haven't received mine yet from Amazon. I per ordered it with the smurfs which comes out on feb.28th. Amazon says that i should receive both dvd's March 5th. I hope they send out perfect strangers first. Just because I ordered them at the same time do they have to ship them at the same time? If so I wish that I would have ordered them seperately.

Wal Mart never has the latest Tv on dvd's. I was not depending on them to have it that's why I pre ordered it. My son also loves Perfect strangers. We've been watching it on aol video and the episodes that I taped off of ION. He also loves Mama's Familly.

If you order more than one DVD at the same time and one is a pre-order Amazon will not ship them until they are all available unless you select to ship them when available at the check out. You can edit this by going into "Your Account" and pulling up the order and clicking to modify it. It should give you the option to ship items separately. It will cost you a few dollars more, but they should send PS out within a day or two of you changing it.

Thank you for giving this great show a chance. The more copies ordered the better chance that we'll have for more seasons. I'm sure you wont regret it.

I'm a bit torn. I loved Perfect Strangers growing up, but my fondest memories of the show are from Season 3 onwards (esp. the Chronicle episodes). I understand the more this set sells, the more likely subsequent sets will be released, but I'm honestly not that big of a fan of the first 2 seasons. Oh well, I'll probably end up getting it anyway.

I don't have kids yet, but I too look forward to passing down my childhood shows to them.
