Editorial Reviews

The Cosby Show appeared on NBC from 1984 to 1992, becoming one of the most popular programs in the history of television. The Cosby Show depicted a close-knit and prosperous African-American family (The Huxtables) that dwelled in New York City. Dr. Heathcliff (OB-GYN) and Clair (attorney) Huxtable were a happily married, dual-profession couple with aspirations of raising their 5 children in an uplifting, positive environment. The Cosby Show held TV's #1 slot for a record 5 consecutive years (1985 to 1990) and stayed in the Top 20 shows for all eight seasons it was on NBC.

Of course I already own seasons 1 and 2 and it has been fun re-watching my favorite show growing up. My son has also fallen in love with the show. He especially loves Rudy while I like the older kids because I was a young teen when this show started. For later seasons, we rely on the old VHS recordings my dad has kept over the years, but they may not last much longer. I'm glad that more seasons of this great show are being released. Like an earlier viewer stated, this show is so much better than current T.V. and I'm thrilled that my son can grow up watching them too. He is growing up watching the shows my husband and I enjoyed as kids. Okay, so he's out of touch with current pop culture, but is that such a bad thing when he can see a great role model like Bill Cosby? I highly recommend this show.

In retrospect, this is one of the more interesting seasons. When the show begins, we notice one person missing from the original cast, Lisa Bonet. (She only appears in picture form during the title sequence.) Where has she gone? Off to the west coast set of A Different World for the popular spin-off's first season. Dear Lisa would only appear as a guest star on two new episodes, "Shakespere" and "Home for the Weekend." (That doesn't include the fantastic slection of previous footage illuded to in the 2-part "Looking Back" collage.)

Instead of seeing Lisa, we witness the introduction of Geoffrey Owens to the regular cast, portraying Elvin Tibbadeaux, who is now married to the oldest Huxtable child, Sondra. They've decided not to pursue their previous career interests and devote themselves to running their own wilderness supply store. This venture presents a recurring topic throughout this season, as well as the first season of A Different World.

Meanwhile, the Huxtable ship keeps sailing with Theo completing his turbulent high school career, Vanessa's boyfriend list expanding, Rudy wanting to wear the wrong clothes and Cliff losing his memory. Among the celebrity guest stars are Christopher Plummer, Adam Sandler (as a recurring character) and Wallice Shaun (also recurring). [Of course, we also have Adam saying, "When Roxanne finds out there's no helicoptor, she is gonna - " what's the word " - plotz!"

Season four's box set is identical to season three's, with the same unfortunate disappointments. Each disc is place in its separate slim case, and yet again no bonus material. But of course the main reason to buy this set is for the episodes and it is nice to have season four out on DVD. You can definitely tell the Huxtable kids are growing up, so the episode plots started to change gradually. There were a few big changes to the show in season four. Elvin and Sondra are married, but unfortunately Lisa Bonet (Denise) is not in season four because she was working on another show called "A Different World" which follows her experiences at Hillman College. But other than that, this season is fantastic and it was a great excitement when I first received it. I really enjoyed the episode "Once Upon a Time", it was a unique episode to the series because it pretty much takes place in Rudy's fantasy. But there are many great episodes from season four since there are no episode descriptions available for season four, I'll list them below.

Call of the Wild - Airdate: 9/24/1987 - The newlywed Sondra and Elvin return from their honeymoon with shocking news for Cliff and Clair; they want to abandon their dreams of being a lawyer and doctor and open a wilderness store.

Theogate - Airdate: 10/1/1987 - Theo and Cockroach come home unusually late from a track meet.

It Ain't Easy Being Green - Airdate: 10/8/1987 - Rudy wants to wear summer clothes in fall to a party but Clair won't let her.

Cliff's Mistake - Airdate: 10/15/1987 - While setting up the house as a haunted house for Halloween, Cliff discovers he's lost a power drill that his neighbor loaned to him.

"Still Number#1" as Bill Cosby was so proud of noting during this time period this was the first season where their were serious changes in the works for the Huxtables. One of the most important things to note that's easy to notice actually is that during this time,all of the kids in this family were growing up. Lisa Bonet is out of the cast and maybe no one noticed but that rather smug picture frame "gag" during this seasons theme song kind of gives the impression that she won't be entirely missed by at least one cast member. Either way Denise not being present to a huge extent during this season changed some of the dynamics. First off we start off with the fact that the the newly married Sondra and Elvin (Geoffrey Owens officially joined the cast this season) surprise the Huxtable parents when they decide to blow off graduate school to open up a wilderness store. This seperates Sondra from her usual characterization of being the "most like her parents" on the education front and builds on some of her earlier advocasy of Denise "taking some time to live life" after high school. An ongoing plot point this season finds the couple involved in living in a slummy apartment and that provides some mildly funny moments. But overall this sets the tone for season. There are a lot of episodes in this season that look to take on serious issues. The relationship between Theo and Cockroach in downplayed as Theo himself is now in a basically adult body but as another reviewer pointed out "not quite funny as a man" yet.That is until Cockroach appruptly disappears,all over a haircut disagreement with Cosby so the story goes and Theo is left with a new group of friends one of whom is played by a young Adam Sandler as Smitty.Read more ›
