^^^ I love them. If only the rest of their show was available to buy on DVD. So far only the first two seasons have been put out there.

God bless you always!!!

I loved this show. It's a shame that it's not on DVD or Netflix.

Perfect Strangers was one of my favorite sitcoms as a kid, but I'll probably wait for a Complete Series release. I never bought any of the MOD seasons.

Itís in full (rather striking) HD on Hulu so I canít imagine why someone would pay to only own them on SD DVD.

^^^ When you love something enough, you'll pay for a physical copy of it. At least that is how I see it. It also gives you something to have signed should you ever get to meet your favorite person of the show. (I know, slim chance, but it isn't completely impossible.)

God bless you always!!!

My wife and I binged the entire show last year, on Hulu. It was awesome.

Iím a huge proponent of physical media and no great lover of streaming, but HD looks so much better than SD, I just couldnít bring myself to shell out money for the DVDs. For autographs, you could always go with an 8Ēx10Ē glossy headshot, LOL. Iím just hoping (even though itís a snowballís chance in Hell) that some indie label releases the show on Blu-ray since itís been newly cleaned up.

By the way, with all due love for Balki, the sun rises and sets on Cousin Larry!

While people keep paying for their monthly subscription to Hulu, at any point, Hulu can decide to pull the plug on Perfect Strangers and remove it from their streaming service. If they do.....at least we still have our DVD copies of this wonderful show sitting on our shelves to watch any time we want.

Can't wait for the final season release.

This is precisely why I don't subscribe to these streaming services, because they can remove the shows I like at any time regardless of fans' opinions. When you own a physical copy, its a lot tougher for someone to take it away.

There would be no Balki without Larry. Larry was perfect in that show!

I wouldn't go that far where Larry is concerned, but I'll admit that I do love to watch him and Balki both here. I love everything about this scene.


God bless you and both gentlemen always!!!

Mark Linn-Baker was great. People often forget that what makes humor work so much of the time is the straight man. All the goofiness in the world can only last to a point, but you need a target to make it timeless. Mark and Bronson were like the great comedy teams before them, such as Laurel & Hardy or Abbott & Costello.

^^^ Last night I watched the season five episode when Balki keeps winning the football betting pool each week at work which led to Larry's decision to hook up with a bookie. The scene near the end of the show when the guys are watching the game is hysterical. Larry couldn't be anymore of a complete and total whack job there.

God bless you always!!!

I remember watching the reruns of this show back in the 90's but didn't see it when it originally aired in the 80's since i was just born then.

Hmm, weird. I thought something like this would've been shot on videotape.

Nope. It's not the only '80s sitcom to be recorded on film (CHEERS springing immediately to mind).
