As some of you know, I am in Chicago for the long weekend. Yes, I have just in Chicago a few weeks ago for Blogher ’13. However, the Windy City truly captured my heart, so I decided to venture back for five full days of fun and relaxation with three of my girlfriends.
To gear up for my trip earlier in the week, I started watching everything and anything Chitown-related!
As an 80s born child, one of my favourite pastime TV series that I would watch religiously with my parents and older siblings was Perfect Strangers. Perfect Strangers was a pure 1980s and early 1990s staple on the tube.
Perfect Strangers is centered around the relationship between Larry Appleton and his distant Mediterranean cousin, Balki Bartokomous, who share an apartment together in Chicago. Later in the series, their girlfriends-turned-wives Jennifer and Mary Anne become prominent characters – adding to the comedic dynamic.
For a 30-minute sitcom, the plots were always simple yet hilarious, with several taglines and memories that many of us remember to this very day.
Even though the series ended after 8 seasons in 1993, I would still recommend it for when you need a good laugh!
