Balki Bartokomous, a sheepherder from the small Mediterranean Greek-like island of Mypos, travels to the United States in search of his relatives. He finds his cousin, Larry Appleton - who has recently 'escaped' from his large-sized family and is reveling in the unaccustomed luxury of having his own room to himself. They end up sharing accommodation in Larry's apartment - even though the two cousins could not be more dissimilar. For, while Larry is panicky, hyperventilative, business-like and mercenary - Balki is placid, unharried, sunny-natured and idealistic. Written by

A typical American guy who's money driven and a simple goat herder from Mipos related?! This show had original sitcom comedy that is rare nowadays. The episode where Larry and Balky try to fit a large sofa in the elevator was hilarious! Sitcoms nowadays are obsolete since stand up comedy and observational humor on life is more desirable these days but there was a time when at least to me, Perfect Strangers was the best TV sitcom out there.
