One almost wishes an episode featured the family dying in their sleep from carbon monoxide poisoning., 22 January 2010
Author: Aaron1375

I never watched all that many episodes of this show, what I did watch of it was one of the worst sitcoms I have ever seen then and since. To start off with lets make the show have two of the most annoying people on the planet as stars of the show. Bob Saget is really annoying anyway then add to him that guy who played uncle Joey I think it might have been. All I know is that he did incredibly bad and incredibly annoying voice impersonations. I mean you know it is bad when John Stamos plays the least annoying character and he is basically a narcissistic egomaniac. Then you have the children who were all annoying little pains, all had the spoiled mentality and you got to watch as the two older sisters argued again and again with the Stephanie one being particularly annoying. Then you had the baby who started out not so annoying as she was a baby and an ugly one at that and grew to be less ugly, but more annoying as the show progressed. What really irks me is that they released this entire series on DVD which is fine by me, I am not going to buy it nor fault anyone who does, but they seem to refuse to release any more "Perfect Strangers" on DVD after the initial release of seasons 1 and 2.
