If you grew up in the 80s, chances are you watched US sitcom Perfect Strangers, in which naïve immigrant from
GreeceMypos Bronson Pinchot comes to live with his cousin Mark-Linn Baker in Chicago, resulting in much hijinks and moral lessons.
Chances are if you’re growing up now – or merely have Netflix – you’ll have seen Stranger Things and Stranger Things 2. Of course, Perfect Strangers didn’t start until 1986 and the 80s-set and -obsessed Stranger Things is only up to 1984, so there haven’t been any references to Perfect Strangers yet. But I’m sure there will be at some point, given Perfect Strangers’ popularity.
That point is now, because on The Jimmy Kimmel Show, we’ve just had both a Perfect Strangers reunion and a crossover with Stranger Things. Do you need to imagine what ‘Perfect Stranger Things’ would look like? No. Because here’s the sketch. Aren’t I kind to you?
Stay tuned to the end for another bonus mash-up, BTW.
I wonder how long it’ll be before Netflix does a reunion Perfect Strangers like it did with Full House?
