3.0 out of 5 stars Edited and destroyed March 21 2007
By Bennet Pomerantz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I like Bosom Buddies when it was an 1980's show. You heard Billy Joel's My LIfe as tne theme song. A young Tom Hanks, a pre-Newhart Peter Scolari. Telma Hopkins, (The late great) Wendy Jo Sperber, Holland Taylor and Donna Dixon. It was "Some Like It Hot" in a boarding house. Hanks and Scolari sold us Kip (buffy) and Henry (hildy) to save money. It was two guys trying to woman for less rent. it was a cute, fun little show that was good for a few laughs

Now the DVD incarnation is not great. Some of the shows seemed over edited, as these were the syndicated shows and NOT the original masters. It is missing Billy Joel's My Life for some lame theme which does not work against the opening credits. There are NO extras to speak of and the stuff thats here is not up to quality

Paramount/CBS video should have known better. They should have spend a few extra dollars and gone for the best (like Billy Joel's My Life), not like the Mama's Family (see the reviewe) [...] that Warner Brothers heaped upon us last year. Yes, It seems cut

It is worth it to see a young Tom Hanks, but PLEASE PARAMOUNT/CBS get us the real thing and not wash out, syndicated shows that seem cut to ribbons and my opinion destroyed, that why only 3 stars

5.0 out of 5 stars You are missed, Wendie Jo Oct. 24 2007
By JGC - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
The first season of "Bosom Buddies" is the very best. Because everything is so fresh and comedic. There are a total of 19 eps from Season One. I got this set partly because I am a big fan of Wendie Jo Sperber. She was always so cute and funny. I loved her in "Back To The Future." Wendie Jo sorta reminded me of Mama Cass (and who doesn't love Mama Cass?) This show came out before I was born, but I have seen most of the reruns on TBS and I fell in love with it. If you've never seen "Bosom Buddies" before, it's a lot like "Three's Company" or "Prefect Strangers" but even better!

4.0 out of 5 stars Best Show Ever -- but not on DVD -- yet Sept. 22 2007
By Liz Bradley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This is my favorite TV show ever. I have every episode on video tape. I've been waiting for it to come out on DVD so I can have every episode recorded on the pureness of digital and with no scenes cut out. So it's terribly disappointing to be missing the theme song, and it's also missing some jokes that require songs, too. In one scene, Kip goes into the bathroom and you're supposed to hear him singing "Happy Days Are Here Again..." but you don't hear anything. In another scene, Isabelle's date is honking the horn for her outside and we're supposed to hear the horn playing "Dixie" or something, but we just hear a regular horn. The audience laughs, but what are they laughing at? Something we no longer hear on the DVD. I'm not going to buy this DVD set until all this is fixed!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the funniest comedies of the late 70's - early 80's period Jan. 2 2007
By calvinnme - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Sure, the storyline had been done before in "Some Like it Hot", but I really loved this show. The obvious reason for looking back on it now is to see Tom Hanks "back in the day" before he hit the big screen. After all, he was the only actor besides Spencer Tracy to ever win back-to-back Best Actor Oscars. Wouldn't you be curious if we had 40 or so half-hour episodes of Spence as a young man parading around in a dress in a situation comedy? I know I would. Besides Tom Hanks, the other castmembers were terrific, and most had pretty good careers. Peter Scolari (Henry Desmond) had a long run on "Newhart" in the 80's, Donna Dixon (Sonny Lumet) was adequate enough as Hank's love interest on the show, the late Wendy Jo Sperber (Amy Cassidy) was very good as the overweight girl who hoped against hope that Scolari's character would come to love her, and finally there's the early appearance of Telma Hopkins (Isabelle Hammond) who had other comedic roles on "Gimme A Break" and then "Family Matters". There were 19 episodes in the first season, even though it didn't debut until late November 1980:

Pilot" - Kip and Henry dress up as women so that they can live in a hotel that is restricted to women.

"My Brother, My Sister, Myself" - Kip is discovered in Hildy's room, which is strictly against hotel rules.

"Loathe They Neighbor" - After an argument with Amy, Sonny moves in with Buffy and Hildy.

"Macho Man" - Henry becomes a macho man when their masquerade has him doubting his masculinity.

"What Price Glory?" - Kip and Henry try to get the account of the unscrupulous Dr. Bob without losing their self-respect.

"Kip and Sonny's Date" - Kip blows his first date with Sonny.

"Beauty and the Beasts" - Kip and Henry go to a singles bar as Buffy and Hildy and are not picked up by guys.

"Revenge" - A date who dumped Amy has a very bad practical joke played on him.

"Amy's Career" - Amy is put in charge of a mouthwash advertising campaign and totally blows it.

"Gotta Dance" - Kip has to tell Sonny that a spot in a commercial he arranged for her has been given to another girl.

"Sonny Boy" - Hildy and Buffy stop a robbery and make the TV news, which prompts Henry's mother to pay `him' a visit.

"How Great Thou Art" - Henry arranges for some of Kip's paintings to be displayed at a gallery as a birthday surprise.

"Kip Quits" - When a client wants a campaign run his way, Henry conforms but Kip quits to sell hot dogs in the park.

"Only the Lonely" - Ruth invites Kip and Henry over for dinner, then will not let them leave.

"The Re-Write" -Kip asks Henry to spice up his autobiography.

"The Show Must Go On" - Kip and Henry wash dishes at a night club so that Isabelle can sing there.

"The Hospital" - Buffy and Hildy become hospital candy stripers so Kip can be closer to Sonny.

"Best Friends" - Henry feels left out when Kip renews his friendship with a rock and roll star.

"Cahoots" - Kip and Amy team up to advance their respective romances with Sonny and Henry but the efforts backfire.

It isn't until the second season that Sonny learns the truth about Buffy and Hildy actually being Kip and Henry. As for the rumor about the theme song on the DVD not being sung by Billy Joel, or possibly not even being the original "My Life", I don't know, but I can believe it might be true. I bought a DVD set of "Bonanza" recently, and the original theme song and background music had been replaced by music that sounded like it had been cranked out by some teenager in his garage on a synthesizer. This all has to do with contracts that made provisions for copyrighted music in syndication, but not such avenues as DVD since the medium didn't even exist at the time.
