December 20, 2011 - It's that time of year again, Cousins!  Time to pass the Christmas bota bag and to roast radishes over an open fire.  Or maybe you'll feel inspired to invite that co-worker no one likes to your annual Christmas party!  To help you celebrate the holidays he Perfect Strangers way, we offer these cheerful updates for you, including a brand new Christmas-themed Photo of the Week, a new tidbit of information for our Tell Me Something I Don't Know page, and up-to-date listings on the What's On Television? page.  We have also added the TV Guide announcement of Family Matters in their 1989 Fall Preview Issue to our Articles section.  We have also embedded Bronson's 1990 interview on Regis and Kathie Lee to our Interviews section.  And what better way to spend Christmas than by watching the next two and final segments of Mark's co-hosting duties with John Stamos for the 1988 McDonald's Charity Christmas Parade on our YouTube Channel, where you can now find Part Five and Part Six!  Finally, the episode we will be discussing this week on our Forums' Weekly Episode Discussion board will be the season five episode Home Movies.  Will you be taking any home movies during this upcoming holiday season?  Hopefully you won't have to resort to hiring a bunch of actors to make it really 'pop!'  We will be taking next week off for the holidays but will return on January 3rd for another New Year of fun!  Happy Birthday, Cousins!

December 13, 2011 - At this time of year it's always nice to remember Mama Bartokomous' advice to Balki, in that a gift of love must go to the one who needs it the most.  So with that in mind, perhaps you would consider picking up a stuffed sheep and donating to one of your local charities as part of our Boochies for Babies program?  It doesn't have to cost much and even just one boochi for one child could make their Christmas!  In the meantime, as you prepare your cheese puffs and make sure the fireplace is just right for your holiday parties, take a moment to check out our updates for the week, including a new Photo of the Week for you to view, a new factoid for our Tell Me Something I Don't Know page, and up-to-date listings on the What's On Television? page.  We also have added a small article about Mark's appearance on stage in Laughter on the 23rd Floor from the New York Times to our Articles section.  And we've also embedded Bronson's 1990 interview on CBS This Morning, in which he talks about working on Zoya's Apartment, to our Interviews section.  And as we count down to Christmas, we are continuing with Mark's guest appearance co-hosting the 1988 McDonald's Charity Christmas Parade with John Stamos on our YouTube Channel.  Finally, the episode we will be discussing this week on our Forums' Weekly Episode Discussion board will be the season three episode You Gotta Have Friends.  With cold weather upon us, do you know how to make hot cocoa at your local night mart?  Better practice, Cousins!  And don't forget the marshmallows (mini or large, your choice!)  

December 6, 2011 - Is it there yet, Cousins?  You know, the Christmas feeling?  Okay, it's a little early yet, but it's not too early to be thinking about our annual Boochies for Babies drive!  Last year we waited too late and by the time we finally took our boochies to be donated right before Christmas all the Toys for Tots bins had already been picked up!  So keep this in mind if you plan to buy a cuddly boochi to donate!  And as always, if you do give away some boochies feel free to send us a picture of them to add to the website!  Thanks, Cousins!  As for our usual updates, we have the usual new Photo of the Week for you to enjoy, a new tidbit of information for our Tell Me Something I Don't Know page, and up-to-date listings on the What's On Television? page.  We have also added an interesting photo of Mark Linn-Baker with Deborah Rush from a 1993 play they did entitled The Largest Elizabeth in the World for Vassar College which was featured in the New York Times.  We have also added the classic Entertainment Tonight interview with Bronson and Mark as they worked together on Bronson's new show, The Trouble With Larry, to our Interviews section.  And we have added the next segment of Mark's guest appearance co-hosting the 1988 McDonald's Charity Christmas Parade with John Stamos to our YouTube Channel.  And finally, the episode we will be discussing on our Forums' Weekly Episode Discussion board will be the season two episode Since I Lost My Baby.  What do you think, Cousins?  Was this an attempt to spin off the Twinkacettis into their own show?  And how do you think a show with them would have worked out?  We're curious to know what you think!  

November 29, 2011 - Okay, Cousins, we hope that if you have decided to diet after indulging in TV dinners this Thanksgiving that you won't have to resort to hiding donuts on your lamp to break the monotony of fish eye soup!  Take your mind off your hunger by perusing our weekly updates instead!  This week we have a brand new Photo of the Week for you to enjoy, a new factoid on our Tell Me Something I Don't Know page, and up-to-date listings on the What's On Television? page.  We have also added a short article about Mark's appearance in the made-for-TV movie Going to the Chapel from the New York Daily News to our Articles section.  And we have also added an interview with both Bronson and Mark from a 1990 episode of CNN Showbiz Today in which they talk about what they're doing on their summer hiatus from Perfect Strangers, to our Interviews section.  And we have the next segment of Mark's guest appearance co-hosting the 1988 McDonald's Charity Christmas Parade with John Stamos to our YouTube Channel.  And finally the episode we will be discussing on our Forums' Weekly Episode Discussion board will be the season seven entry Missing.  Watch out for those marbles, Cousins!!

April 5, 2011 - Hello, Cousins, and welcome back to a brand new week of updates!  This week we'd like to draw your attention to our brand new DVD Petition which we are encouraging all Perfect Strangers fans to sign to convince Warner Bros. that there really is an interest in having the rest of the series released on DVD!  To that end we have included a write-up about the campaign on our News page, so check it out!  And thanks to everyone who has already signed or is rushing right over to the website to sign right now!  We have our usual updates as well, including a brand new Photo of the Week, a new factoid on our Tell Me Something I Don't Know page, and updated TV listings in our What's On Television? section.  You will also find a short article about Bronson in The Trouble With Larry from a 1993 edition of Total TV added to our Articles section.  Cousin Dabbzygirl from the Forums pointed out an interesting fact for us in the fifth season episode Digging Up the News regarding the date the show was filmed and the date Balki gives as Uncle Shaggy's tenth anniversary!  Good spotting, Cousin!  And we have added embedded videos of Bronson's 1987 Hollywood Memory on Entertainment Tonight plus Mark's interview on the 1989 KTLA Family Film Festival for My Favorite Year to our new Interviews section.  And to inspire you to rush right over and sign the Petition we have posted some television commercials which Warner Bros. aired when the first and second season originally came out on DVD to our YouTube Channel!  Finally, head on over to the Fan Forum where on the Weekly Episode Discussion Board we will be contemplating the fifth season episode Lie-Ability.  And if you lie about how you feel about this episode over there I will perform the Myposian Litany of Truth on you!  Oh po po!

March 29, 2011 - Well, load my website and call me revamped!  It took a lot longer than we anticipated, but the newly redesigned website is finally up and running!  You'll notice some big changes right off the bat . . . the frames page with the links is now gone, which will make it easier for search engines to index us properly.  You will now find all the links in our handy menu at the top of every page.  And the darker buttons indicate which section of the site you are currently visiting.  The other thing you'll notice that's changed is we are no longer posting videos on the website itself.  Instead we will continue to add videos to our YouTube Channel and embed many of those within the website so you will be able to find and view videos more easily.  We will add videos over time and alert you to newly embedded clips each week.  Now as you may well know, Perfect Strangers turned 25 years old on March 25, 1986, and we were very excited when the folks at TVSquad.com wrote up a really nice then-and-now story about the show and included a link to us, so a big welcome to all the Perfect Strangers fans who may be visiting us for the very first time!  We update the website every Tuesday and link to the changes here on the Updates page (previous members please note that this is a new URL, so reset your bookmarks!)  This is where you will want to come first each week when you visit!  This week we have added some fun new stuff for you, including a brand new Photo of the Week (note that this is now featured on it's very own page within the Photos section!), a new tidbit of information on our Tell Me Something I Don't Know page, and updated TV listings in our What's On Television? section.  We have also added a cover from the TV Guide section of the Sacramento Bee from August 1989 to our Articles section.  And you will find newly embedded interview videos from YouTube in our Articles section . . . each section has both Articles and Interviews so you can browse by subject, and you can find the videos we've embedded so far under Bronson's, Mark's and the general Perfect Strangers' interview sections.  We have also added Issue #19 of the original P.S. I Love You! to our Newsletters section.  And finally we have added a very cute interview with Bronson Pinchot on Good Morning, America from 1987, shortly after Bronson received his Emmy nomination for Best Actor in a Comedy Series, to our YouTube Channel!  Not sure how we neglected to put this one up earlier, but here it is now!  And speaking of Bronson, if you have any questions for Bronson you'd like to ask, Cousin Lucy at BronsonPinchot.org will be resuming a Q&A section with Bronson, so get your questions in via our Fan Forum!  And while you're there, be sure to put your two cents in on our Weekly Episode Discussion Board!  Since we've already discussed the very first episode, we'll reminisce by discussing the second episode of the series, Picture This.  And as you look through the new site, be sure to let us know if you find any broken links or bugs which need fixing!  Now go on with you!

I Love You! fanzine to the Newsletters section.  And on our Video page we are presenting clips of Rebeca Arthur from a 1988 appearance she made on the game show Super Password.  We have also added a very cute Perfect Strangers commercial originally run on ABC to our YouTube Channel which was a take-off on the Bo Knows Nike commercials that were running around that time.  And finally the episode we will be discussing this week on our Forum's Weekly Episode Discussion board will be the season seven episode The Play's the Thing.  Just don't say the word "bridge!"  We will not be updating the website in the coming weeks, as we will be working on a complete redesign of the website in anticipation of Perfect Strangers' 25th Anniversary, but we will keep you up to date with our progress on our Forums and on our Facebook Group as well!  Now go on with you!
