I saw this online today and it was too hard not to post here. Balki Bartokomous and Cousin Larry of "Perfect Strangers" reunited for the first time in 25 years! Who remembers Balki and Cousin Larry? "Perfect Strangers" debuted in 1986 and was the first show on ABC's Friday Night TGIF lineup. It would also serve as the basis for a spinoff show, "Family Matters" better known to some as Urkel. The show was akin to a Yakov Smirnoff act or a proto-Borat, with Balki leaving his Eastern European / Mediterranean island of Mepos for a new life in Chicago, where he shows up unexpectedly one day at the door of Cousin Larry, and the two eventually end up working at the Chicago Chronicle.

Watched Beverly Hills Cop this week.

I think Pinchot broke out and was discovered in that small role as a major comedy character actor and went on to Perfect Strangers shortly after.

 

It's good to see them like this, today.

 

True, there were some fun, goofy TV comedies on those days.

Espresso with a little leemon tweeest!
