Movie Reviews

Nice sampling
David B. Young | Ozark, Alabama United States | 11/15/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is a nice sampling of the better Cosby episodes. I liked the show, but didn't want to purchase and watch entire season sets. This set has most of the episodes that I remember from the series run. Don't expect superb picture quality, but it looks at least as good as the original broadcasts. There are no bonuses. Episodes are in broadcast order. For example, the first is from season 1, then you get one or two from each of the seasons that followed, in chronological order."
The Best of the Best

"I really love "The Cosby Show." Like millions of other families, every Thursday night when this came on, my family and I would get around the TV and watch it.

Why is "The Cosby Show" so groundbreaking?

It is really the first accurate depiction of an African-American family. Prior to "The Cosby Show," African-American sitcoms always had the buffoon character with unrealistic storylines. But "The Cosby Show" refused to pander to the lowest common denominator. And by doing so they became the Number One Sitcom in the country. "The Cosby Show" said that the black family was no different from the white family or the Asian-American family or the Latin-American family. Maybe the main message of "The Cosby Show" was that in the end we all have the same problems and the same goals.

It's really hard to say who my favorite character is on "The Cosby Show." The entire cast is so likeable. Watching them was like watching old friends. If I had to pick, of course first would be Dr. Huxtable (played by the Cos, of course.) Because even when the kids did something wrong he was fair but very funny. And, coming in at a close second is Denise (Lilakoi Moon, more commonly known as Lisa Bonet.) Denise was always such a free spirit. And, of course I adored Mrs. Huxtable (Phylicia Rashâd.) Didn't everyone wish they had a mom like her?

I recomend picking up Dr. Cosby's latest book, Come On People: On the Path from Victims to Victors."
