I have several all-time favorite sitcoms which I truly cannot rank. Almost all of them have retained a lot of pop culture recall either through continued reruns or reunion rumors. Golden Girls. Murphy Brown. The Nanny. Friends. Will & Grace. I Love Lucy.

A couple of these favorites, however, have not really had much discussion or attention since they ended. One is the under-rated and short-lived Veronica’s Closet, and the other is the wonderful Perfect Strangers.

Thankfully, the latter finally gets a revisit with the recent reunion of Mark Linn Baker and Bronson Pinchot, aka Cousin Larry and Balki!

And boy, are they both still hilarious. Their chemistry remains intact, and we can see exactly why this pair worked so well together way back when. Also, may I just say that Bronson Pinchot looks pretty damned good for someone who’s just a couple of years away from being sixty frigging years old?

Now, they said they’re not sure if they could do the Dance of Joy again at their age, but we’re definitely rooting for them!

Meanwhile, pleasepleaseplease release the rest of the series on DVD. Only the first two seasons out of eight have been released, and we can only hope they go for more.
