To ABC's Perfect Strangers for its outrageous physical comedy. The
antic of Larry and Balki (l.-r.: Mark Linn-Baker and Bronson Pinchot) are in the
tradition of slapstick sitcoms like I Love Lucy and Laverne &
Shirley. Is the humor sophisticated? As Balki says, "Doan
be reedeeculus." But, this dependable duo's silly wrestling
matches and pratfalls provoke easy laughter.
