  Bosom Buddies: The Complete Series

 Review by Suzanne Lanoue 2/1/18

I watched this show when it first aired, and I loved it. Of course, Tom Hanks became a big star after this. Now, he was always a fine actor on this, but I never thought he was all that attractive (I don't like curly hair on guys, so I think that's why). My favorite was Peter Scolari. Funny that Scolari would just be a TV actor, for the most part, and Hanks would go on to be one of the best actors of our time.

It was a silly comedy, but I enjoyed it. The characters were fun and silly, but the jokes were funny, for the most part. It has a great Billy Joel theme song, too!

It was only on two seasons, but I'm glad that it came out on DVD. I didn't realize that a lot of their acting was improvised, back then. It's nice to know. Holland Taylor, who was so great later on in "Two and a Half Men" plays their boss, Ruth, in the first season.

A lot of the jokes in the first season were about them having to dress as women. They moved away from that in the second season. I think that was a bad idea and why the show got canceled.

Anyone who likes good comedy should enjoy this DVD series.


Title: Bosom Buddies: The Complete Series (DVD)

Fact Sheet:

Description: Tom Hanks stars in the hilarious sitcom that launched his Academy Award-winning career in Bosom Buddies: The Complete Series. After their old apartment building collapses, best friends and struggling ad men Kip Wilson (Hanks) and Henry Desmond (Peter Scolari) must dress up as women to rent the only other place they can afford in New York City: the female-only Susan B. Anthony Hotel. As Kip and Henry begin their secret lives as Buffy and Hildegarde, they quickly learn that with a little moxie, and a lot of makeup, anything is possible! Bosom Buddies: The Complete Series includes all 37 episodes of the irreverent comedy!
