It is very sad with the demise of once great and beloved actor who everyone liked. I planned to watch these one day BUT the Cosby Show nor any Cosby movies will no longer be on my wish since he is sour milk these days. The increasing number of copies available is also telling since others have the same feelings.

"The Cosby Show's seventh season premiered on September 20,1990 with the cast at its all-time largest. Erika Alexander joins as Clair Huxtable's(Phylicia Rashad) kid cousin Pamela Tucker who moves into the Huxtable household from a Brooklyn tenement. Pamela attends the same high school as the other Huxtable kids(except Rudy) did. Vanessa(Tempest Bledsoe),who went from the sophomore to the senior level during her high school years last season,leaves the Huxtable nest to attend Lincoln University. So 11-year-old Rudy(Keshia Knight Pulliam) is the only Huxtable kid left in the household(who hasn't yet left at all). Pamela occupied Vanessa's bedroom while Vanessa was away. Rudy and Olivia Kendall(Raven Symone) still share a bedroom and so do Olivia's father Martin(Joseph C. Phillips) and his wife,the former Denise Huxtable(Lisa Bonet). Theo(Malcolm Jamal Warner) is out of the Huxtable household again and back in his girlfriend Justine Phillips'(the late Michelle Thomas,recurringly). Martin half-humorously declined being given a bachelor party by Theo and Sondra's(Sabrina LeBeauf) husband Elvin Tibidaux(Geoffrey Owens). Denise,who thought Martin DID want it,was so angry with him. This results in mild arguments between the Tibidauxs and Cliff's(Bill Cosby) parents Russell(Earle Hyman,recurringly) and Anna(Clarice Taylor,recurringly). Clair believed Theo was the cause of the arguments. This happened at a backyard barbecue held at the Huxtable home(Cliff was grilling burgers and chickens). Rudy's friend Kenny(Deon Richmond,recurringly) attended the barbecue also. I believe the highest-rated episode this season was the one where the late great John Ritter and his not-yet-girlfriend/wife Amy Yasbeck guest-starred. Ritter was Ray Evans,a basketball coach with a pregnant wife(Yasbeck). In fact,Cosby and RS were the only cast members to appear in this episode(Cosby holds the record for appearing in every episode of the series). So Ray and his wife became parents and of course were congratulated by the doctor who delivered the baby,Cliff. There's also RETURN OF THE CLAIRETTES. They are Clair and an old girlfriend of hers who's married herself. The husband was played by none other then Phylicia's real-life(now-ex)husband,football great Ahmad Rashad. Silly Olivia once laundered her crayons in the Huxtables' washer(naturally,she took for granted that would be OK for the washable crayons). In the two-part season finale,Theo worked as a substitute teacher for special education students in spite of his dyslexia. You'll also see the Tibidauxs twins Winnie and Nelson again,now age 2. The other episodes are great. As for the opening montage,the one used for season 8 was filmed and intended to be used for this season. I'm sure we'll see the recycling of the season 6 opening and closing montages in this set,with a few changes in the credits,one of them being Alexander's inauguration. We will not hear Cosby quipping,"This is the best elevator music I ever heard",like we did in the season 6 opening. By the way,since one of the season 6 episodes premiered during the season 7 run on NBC,it will be included in this set(I don't know why it was delayed). This season finished at #5,a new low. Bonet was written out of the series for good after this season(she had been fired). Denise would only be mentioned from this point on. Also,Karen Malina White made a few recurring appearances during this season and the next/last. She would later become Mrs. Malcolm Jamal Warner,who himself was dating Thomas during this time."
A Great Cosby Season

"Sadly for me anyway,this was The Cosby Show's final swansong for Lisa Bonet,who would be absent from the show by the season yet to come. As one reviewer also stated this season features the largest cast The Cosby Show ever had. This also introduces the character of Cousin Pam and her best friend Charmaine (soon to be a featured character on A Different World)-not only that but the community center where they dwelled became a platform for one of the best episodes of the season;the two part closer in which Theo,newly assigned to the center tries to encourage a young man who he believes is dyslexic as himself. There are many favorite moments to be seen on this season:one of them finds Denise and Martin looking for apartments,one of which is a cramped "crew quarters" with a shower in the living room. Another favorite involves the two characaters again-this time revolving around a "battle of the sexes" in the Huxtable clan surrounding Theo throwing the couple a bachelor party.Even the grandparents get into it with them. Another of my personal favorites is a nightmare of Rudy's after she has a fight with Olivia,featuring the youngest Huxtable imagining Olivia is a semi demonic-acting rival. There are many more but I could go on and on. One great thing about this season is,with the Huxtable kids out of the house Clair and Cliff's constant (and sometimes selfishly irritating) ribes from the previous season about all the kids leaving disappear,and the show went back to being the show it started out as. With this and the accompanying season 8 DVD collectors of this series will now be able to officially complete their Cosby Show Collection!"
Episodes messed up

"First off - I like this new format better - where they give the descriptions of the episode before viewing. However, as I was watching the episodes, I've noticed that two of them are messed up. My episode #14 is actually #19 and vice versa. Has anyone else had that problem, or did I just get a bad set? Otherwise - love the season - especially the characters of Lance, Charmaine & Pam. They crack me up."
