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.
We don't actually see Denise Kendall on camera throughout this season, as she and Martin are now living in Singapore (Theo and Olivia plan to visit them at the show's close). And, who ends up moving into the house in their place? Sondra, Elvin - Winnie and Nelson. Who else could bring Dr. Huxtable first to put a playpen over their heads, then to point a dust buster at his own skull? (I ask you, folks!)
But, nothing in the world, funny, dramatic, surrealistic, whatever can match the last scene when Cliff finally repairs the doorbell (malfunctioning throughout that season), grabs hold of Clair and literally dances her out into the audience and through the studio exit. Dancing to the showtune, "If I Were a Bell..."
One of the details of the series finale,"And So, We Commence" is a flashback to the series pilot, when Theo has gotten a report card full of D's and tries to pass it off as a result of not being brilliant like Cliff & Clair. This detail gives this reviewer a certain attitude about the series on the whole. It really wasn't as much about Dr. Huxtable or the family on the whole. It was about Theo and his struggles to harness his true intellectual potential. [Certainly, he had the greatest character arc and was the focus of both the first and last episodes.] I wonder if Malcolm realizes this.
