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.

Season seven was the start of a minor downfall of the Cosby Show, but I can't really complain, this season is still better than half of what's on television nowadays. This is a great buy, highly recommended.
Big changes for Clair as well: she accepts her second cousin Pam Tucker into the Huxtable home and - respectively begins menapause. We also witness Sondra beginning her law degree, Elvin starting his practice and Denise taking a serious step toward becoming a teacher.
Among the season's best moments are "Bird in the Hand," "Period of Adjustment," "It's All in the Game," "The Infantry has Landed," "You Can Go Home Again," "Clair's Liberation," "Return of the Clairettes," "Home Remedies," "Nightmare on Stigwood Avenue," "Cliff and Jake" (wonderful appearance by Red Buttons) and the two-parte season finale "Theo and the Kids."
[I'm interested in finding out if that's really Tempestt, Erika Alexander and Karen Malina White doing the groovy Supremes-meets-Ronnettes-meets-Pointer-Sisters vocals during "Nightmare on Stigwood Avenue."]
[One could almost view the first few episodes on Disc 2 as "The Transitional Suite." That's when Rudy begins her period, Denise & Martin finally get the bug to live in their own home after being married a year-and-a-half, Pam starts dating a nice boy, Clair enters menapause, and Theo learns to shake off the girls to prepare for an exam.]
And then, there's the silly mistake someone made in the packaging when the titles of "No More Mr. Nice Guy" and "Attack of the Killer 'B's" were mismatched. To make up for this error - it'd be neat if Carsey-Werner distributed at least a couple more seasons of A Different World. (Ha ha ha!)
I debated 3 stars because there are obvious agendas here and there that pop out occasionally, and sometimes I would like a movie/TV show that isn't pushing an agenda on me, however, it wasn't enough to downgrade this classic TV series in my perspective.
