Blast from the Past – Perfect Strangers

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.

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!
