By 1991 The Cosby Show was not exactly the commercial powerhouse it had been in the mid to late 80's but remained the hottest game in town. As with many a last season this series ties up many loose ends. There are five main plot points the generally extend throughout the seasons,sort of as mini story arcs: Cousin Pam trying to apply to collage and coping with Charmaine going away to collage,Cliff trying to build a private room for Clair now that most of the kids are away,Theo preparing for his upcoming graduation,somewhat of a teenage "love traigle" between Rudy,Kenny and their respective loves interests and new collage student Vanessa's truly bizzare relationship with the older but self sufficiant Dabnis,whom Cliff takes a shining to because of his abilities as a tinker. There are some funny moments this season but for the most part the episodes concentrate on developing and closing the story arcs and thus the characters themselves. Another important part of this season is that this is the very first season of The Cosby Show where Lisa Bonet doesn't make even a single physical appearance in the show;Dennise is only refered to casually in select episodes and is only spoken to over the phone (we don't hear her voice) in the finale. That finale is the 44 minute "And So We Commence",involving Theo's collage graduation and Olivia departing to join Dennise and Martin in Singapore (as well as finding out she's becomming a big sister). So this is a pretty good season but the wacky humor and individually great episodes are sacrificed in favor to tieing up the loose ends for the shows enevitable conclusion. It was kind of a sad day when the Huxtables left the airwaves in 1992;I personally believe prime time family comedy just hasn't been the same since then.

The Cosby Show began its eighth and final season on September 19,1991. The opening and closing montages intended for the season 7 run are finally used this season. Again,the cast is moving in rhythm to hip-hop featuring a trumpet and a snare drum. The reason for the delay of this opening's use:a mural seen in the background was not an original created by a group of artists. Bill Cosby finally received permission from the artists to use the facsimile(the group,in fact threatened NBC with a lawsuit if this was done without permission). This montage contained appearances by Lisa Bonet and Joseph C. Phillips which were deleted due to Bonet's termination and Phillips' write-out as a regular after season 7. So we see Erika Alexander in face and name this season(due to the recycling of the season 6 opener last season,only she appeared in name). So the regular cast went from eleven members(in 1990-91) to nine(this season). Gordon Cartrelle served as executive producer this season,succeeding Steve Kline(in 1990-91). Cartrelle was even a fashion designer and mentioned in the season 1 episode A SHIRT STORY. Now for the highlights:in the premiere episode,Vanessa(Tempest Bledsoe) announces her engagement to her college Lincoln University custodian Dabnis Brickney(William Thomas,recurringly). Cliff(Bill Cosby) and Clair(Phylicia Rashad) were not very delighted by the news,probably due to the fact that Vanessa was only 18 years old. It was written that Bonet's and Phillips' characters,Denise Huxtable Kendall and her lieutenant husband Martin had moved to Africa since Martin had been assigned to a naval base there. Martin's daughter Olivia(Raven Symone) was not allowed to join him and her stepmother,so she remained in Brooklyn with Cliff,Clair,Rudy(Keshia Knight Pulliam) and Clair's cousin Pam Tucker(Alexander).Read more ›

This is a good clean family comedy show. It shows values and teaches lessons. The way Bill Cosby raises his kids and the everyday growing up family issues are handled very well by Bill Cosby. Its a great older show and much better than the stuff on TV today.

The final season of the Cosby Show was a terrific season. The Cosby Show definitely went out with a bang and had a classy ending to a classy show. But it still wasn't as good as the previous seasons, and it showed in the ratings, it slipped down to eighteen and the writers and cast thought this was a good time to end the show. There were a few final changes, Theo is preparing to graduate, Lisa Bonet (Denise) has left the show for a final time, Vanessa is in love with a much older man named Dabnis Brickey, much to the dislike of Cliff and Clair, and Rudy is in love with a kid from the community center named Stanley. Meanwhile, through all these life changes Cliff is just trying to build a room for Clair. After finishing season eight I was entirely satisfied with the ending, it truly is one of the best finale's there can be. But this DVD is unfortunately disappointing, there could have been a lot of bonus material for the final season but Urban Works decided to keep it like the previous seasons, we only get the episodes, but that's reason enough to buy this set. Each episode has episode descriptions on the DVD episode menu but I'll still list them below just in case you're interested.

With This Ring? - Airdate: 9/19/1991 - 18 year old Vanessa reveals that she is engaged to a 29 year old head maintenance man of her University... and has been for six months.

There's No Place Like This Home - Airdate: 9/26/1991 - Cliff announces plans to add a new room to the house for Clair... and only Clair. Meanwhile Sondra and Elvin are on the verge of purchasing their first house.

Particles in Motion - Airdate: 10/3/1991 - During his first parent-counselor meeting, Theo and a single mother discover mutual attraction.
