"BUDDIES had its solid moments in its first season, mostly because of Hanks and Scolari's wise-guy timing and the show's supporting cast." -- Grade: B-
Before he became a star of the silver screen, dramatic actor Tom Hanks made a comedic splash in the gender-bending 1980s sitcom BOSOM BUDDIES. When their condemned tenement is demolished by a wrecking ball, struggling advertising copywriters Kip (Hanks) and Henry (Peter Scolari) decide to rent an apartment in the same building as their friend Amy (Wendie Jo Sperber). The only trouble is, Amy lives in an all-female residential hotel, forcing Kip and Henry to don drag and masquerade as their "sisters" Buffy and Hildegarde, leading to a quirky series of cross-dressing misadventures that would make Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis proud. This collection presents the series' debut season in its entirety.
