I believe season five is my favorite season of the series. I especially love the theme song, and it's the most unique theme song from the series. And there were so many hysterical episodes, I especially love the episode "A Room With No View", Vanessa and Rudy have been fighting constantly and they on accidentally damage the roof during a big fight, and as a punishment Cliff decides to make them live in the basement until they learn to get along. And I love "Day of the Locusts", this is my favorite episode that includes Sondra, Sabrina Le Beauf plays Sondra and she did a great job in this episode. And there were also some big changes in season five, in "Out of Brooklyn" Denise decides she wants a job in Africa as a photographer's assistant, and in "The Birth" Sondra finally gives birth to twins. But as we have become accustomed to, there is no bonus material on this set. And the packaging is the same as usual, each disc is placed in a seperate slim case, and also included on the box are the episode titles but no episode descriptions. Below I'll list the episode descriptions for season five just in case someone is interested.

Together Again and Again - Airdate: 10/6/1988 - As Theo begins his freshman year at New York University, Denise announces that she is dropping out of Hillman College.

The Physical - Airdate: 10/131988 - Cliff prepares for a physical.

Rudy's All-Nighter - Airdate: 10/20/1988 - Rudy's friend sleeps over, but the two soon begin to argue.

Move It - Airdate: 10/27/1988 - Everyone wants pregnant Sondra and Elvin to find a new house.

Out of Brooklyn - Airdate: 11/3/1987 - Denise leaves Brooklyn for a job in Africa as a photographer's assistant.

Wow,I don't believe this! On June 5,First Look Entertainment put out seasons 3 and 4 of NBC's The Cosby Show and on November 6,we TCS fans will once again double our pleasure with the releases of seasons 5 and 6. I'd assume the discs will be housed singly in plastic cases like the season 3 and 4 sets. In 1988,TCS made its syndication debut on various independent stations all over America and other countries. Comedian Bill Cosby,the series' star and co-creator,promoted the syndication debut in magazine/newspaper advertisement and television commercial. He said,"We'll be coming to your house five nights a week instead of just one. And if that's not enough,you should consider moving in with us.". The first station I remember syndicating TCS was Seacaucus,New Jersey-based WWOR(I had that station in my native New Jersey). WWOR probably still airs TCS today. Around summer 1988,writers for many network series went on strike until that September,the latest. So on October 6,1988,season 5 premiered with the episode TOGETHER AGAIN AND AGAIN. We see recent high school graduate Theodore Aloysius "Theo" Huxtable(Malcolm Jamal Warner) entering New York University with his girlfriend Justine(the late Michelle Thomas,recurringly). But Theo hasn't,at least not yet,left the Huxtable nest. We also see Vanessa(Tempest Bledsoe) and her friends Janet and Kara,forming a vocal group called The Lipsticks and entering a talent contest. However,their busty appearances and sexy movements shock Vanessa's mother Clair(Phylicia Rashad). Cliff(Cosby),I must admit,was a tadbit shocked himself. Fifteen-year-old Vanessa also breaks curfew by staying out ridiculously late with a boyfriend(she was just in his car with him). As for The Lipsticks,Rudy(Keshia Knight Pulliam) thought they were "hot"!Read more ›

Airing from October 6, 1988 to May 11, 1989, The Cosby Show Season 5 continued to show one of the most groundbreaking sitcoms in television history. The fifth season of The Cosby Show starred Bill Cosby as Dr. Cliff Huxtable, Phylicia Rashad as Clair Huxtable, Sabrina LeBeauf as Sondra Huxtable-Tibideaux, Geoffrey Owens as Elvin Tibideaux, Malcolm-Jamal Warner as Theo Huxtable, Tempestt Bledsoe as Vanessa Huxtable, and Keshia Knight Pulliam as Rudy Huxtable. Season 5 continued to focus on doctor Cliff Huxtable and his attorney wife, Clair, raising their five children in Brooklyn, New York. The children consisted of Sondra, who is married to Elvin Tibideaux, 18 year-old girl crazy Theo, who starts college at New York University this year, rebellious 15 year-old Vanessa, and the lovable, sassy 9 year-old Rudy. In season five, the Huxtables dealt with Sondra going into labor in the Huxtable's kitchen and giving birth to twins, Vanessa is the victim of rumors at school and sneaks out to be with her boyfriend, Rudy learns life lessons the hard way, Clair turns 46, Theo adjusts to college life. Recurring characters include Denise Huxtable (played by Lisa Bonet), Cliff and Clair's second daughter who drops out of Hillman College and takes a trip to Africa, Russell and Anna Huxtable (played by Earle Hyman and Clarice Taylor), Cliff's parents, Justine Phillips (played by Michelle Thomas), Theo's sharp-as-a-whip girlfriend, Peter (played by Peter Costa), the Huxtables' and neighbor and Rudy's friend, and Kenny aka "Bud" (played by Deon Richmond), Rudy's loud and chauvinistic friend. Season two was placed at #1 in the summer of 1986 in the Nielsen Ratings, marking the beginnings of the series five-year streak as the number one show in America.Read more ›
