Bosom Buddies, the ’80s farce about two guys who dress up as women to get an apartment, became an excuse for its young stars, Tom Hanks and Peter Scolari, to improvise, use silly voices and display the kind of freedom you rarely see on sitcoms. Even though season one doesn’t come with any extra features (and some footage was cut because of music copyright issues), the 19 episodes will take you all the way back to a time when Hanks was funny.
