Perfect Strangers is my all time favorite show! I absolutly LOVE it. Does anyone remember it? It ran for 8 seasons from 1985-1993. It starred Bronson Pinchot as "Balki", and Mark Lynn-Baker as "Cousin Larry". It was about an immigrant sheep hearder (Balki) who comes to America to move in with his cousin (Larry) who he has never seen, of ever talked to before in his life. Larry was shocked when a stranger showed up at his door claming to be related to him, and was ready to move in. Balkis funny mis use of every day phrases mad the show what it was. "Don't be re-dic-uloss" was his favorite phrase. While Larry often said "Oh my lord!" The two of then always got into the funniest of situations.

There are 150 episodes in the series, but i have only seen about 50 of them.

Some of my favorite episodes are the first one where the 2 of them meet for the first time, the one where Larry teaches Balki to drive, The one where they went on the devistated ski trip, the one where they went on the devistated camping trip, the one when Larrys brother came to visit and they both tried to out do each other with lies, the one where they take karate, the one where they baby sit..............and so many more.

What are your favorites? Please let me know!!!!!

I liked that show too. Can't remember a specific episode right now. There is a cool web site that tells about each episode of different TV shows ~ it is kind of fun to read about shows on there ~

I remember it! I think one of the most influential shows I saw was, of all things, Mork and Mindy. I am STILL trying to figure out how to move to Boulder, Colorado, because in my mind, it seems like the most perfect, beautiful place on earth to live...

I remember that show! I don't remember specific episodes, but I remember watching it.
I remember sitting around the tv and watching America's Funniest Home Video's as a kid.
