Editorial Reviews

The Cosby Show is arguably the best television show of all-time…appearing on NBC from 1984 to 1992 and holding TV's #1 slot for a record 5 consecutive years (1985 to 1990). The Huxtables re-defined the perception of the African-American family by depicting a happily-married, dual-profession couple that successfully raised their children in an uplifting, positive environment.

The Best of The Cosby Show contains 10 classic episodes of the legendary series as they appeared on network television. For the first time ever, the Huxtable magic that spanned 8 seasons can be captured on one disc. This is a must-have for all television lovers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice sampling November 15, 2007
Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars They just don't make them like this anymore April 19, 2011
I don't think we ever missed a show during its long run. The very first night it was on, my wife said "I never heard you laugh like that" and in deed it did hit me just right. It of course is not all just funny a lot of the shows had a very serious side, isn't that life amoung all the seriousness of life there are those funny moments.

I am a big fan of old tv from "The Honeymooners" to "The Cosby show", in my opinion the only great show in the last 15 years or so has been "Everybody loves Raymond", I have the whole series on DVD and it was really expensive $40 a season, but worth it.

Since I got this "Best of Cosby show", I have seen each episode 3 or 4 times, I seem to be able to watch them over and over and they don't get old.

Having said that, much like the first "Mary Tyler Moore" I got that was a compilation, I bought the whole series so that first one was kind of a waste and I gave it away to a friend, I don't think she ever watched it. I see that happening with this series, there is no way I am not going to get the whole run.

I have always been a Cosby fan, ever since I heard his first record when I was in College and I continue to appreciate his work, I thought he did a great job on "Kids say the funniest things", he really has a knack with children.

As much as I like the DVD, I would not recommend to someone that liked the show, forget about the best of and go right for Season 1.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best of the Best September 28, 2007
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?

4.0 out of 5 stars Sigh, what a great show. August 23, 2012
Verified Purchase
My family (and my husband's family) grew up on the Cosby show, so this was a treasure to find. We laughed our way through these episodes when we were gathered together, first with my family, then with my husband's family. I do think the earlier ones on this DVD tend to be more lighthearted/funny than the later ones, but they are all enjoyable. In my opinion, this show was kind of the "gold standard" of family shows. They don't make 'em like they used to!!

4.0 out of 5 stars my son loves it! December 30, 2013

Overall, good product, but the DVD doesn't always line up with the voices, and the picture seems to jump in places, like it has to catch up to what's going on.

I bought this as a gift for my husband who is a huge Cosby Show fan. It's a pretty straight forward, no frills menu screen, but the DVD plays great with several classic episodes we enjoy!
