Great 80s sitcom: Bosom Buddies
Remember this great sitcom? The only affordable apartment that Tom Hanks and his best friend Peter Scolari could find in Manhattan was in an apartment building for women. So they had to dress in drag whenever they entered or left their apartment.
The problem with this show is that the gag of the two of them dressing in drag became a real drag after half a season. They were both incredibly talented comic actors, and this show probably would have had a much longer run if it was simply about two guys living in an apartment in Manhattan, but alas that was before the TV studios realized that a show about some people living in Manhattan without a gimmick like them having to dress in drag would be sustainably funny. Before Friends, before Seinfeld.
