Seasons 3 and 4 Of The Award-Winning Hit Series!
Season s Three and Four of this wildly popular TV series is paired together, for the first time, to form one amazing collection. Relive all your favorite moments from the show that TV Guide says almost single-handedly revived the sitcom. The Cosby Show regularly appears in lists of the greatest shows of all time, yet it remains as vibrant today as one of Cliff's Huxtable's sweaters!
From their brownstone in Brooklyn, Cliff and Clair Huxtable watched over their family with style, wit and wisdom, not to mention a whole lot of laughs. The values they represented clearly struck a nerve with the public as the show was an instant success - never out of the top 20 in the ratings, and one of only two shows to hold TV's #1 spot for five years in a row.

We read a review saying how this show used to be on Netflix and was for some reason taking off of Netflix, don't know why... But it is okay for us as we like to take our DVD's with us while on the road as it makes for some fun times. This has also come in handy when we are out and have to wait for long periods of time.. This happen recently and The Cosby Show saved the day! We started season one and before we knew it, it was time to go on to our next destination.
So back to the reason we went ahead and purchased this collection. Due to the garbage on T.V. these days, looks like many people are looking for great T.V. shows and are turning to shows like this again. Many people are tired of paying for trash T.V. so they have found other ways to view T.V. the way they want to. Looks like this is the growing attitudes with paid for TV these days.. And I know many like the Cosby show so it is in demand!
While shopping on Amazon we selected the used copy we wanted and while still shopping someone else purchased the copy we had in our cart so we lost that copy and had to select another copy that cost more. I guess that goes to show how great this show is, everyone is grabbing copies of it.(demand for this show is good)(which is good, because this should show producers that people really want to watch).
Anyway, our family loves this show and glad that we were still able to find a used copy for a decent price.. We don't want to spend too much money out of our budget. We are just glad to be able to watch T.V. the way we want to and not have to pay for crap TV. We are tired of today's T.V. shows.. It's really sad that such a good method of influence has turned into trash T.V with the exception of National Geo etc.. Any way, if you want clean T.V. this is it!
I can say since we cut cable off we have a better free life.. seems like we have more family time and time to do the things that we want to do. Plus we pay for the shows that we want like The Cosby show since it is not on Netflix. I am glad that this T.V. series is available on Amazon.
This T.V. Series teaches a lot of great lessons and also entertains you.. Miss those days of shows like this. So if you are looking for clean great family fun, this show is for you.. You will not be disappointed. Our children love this show! This show could even go for parental education!
Bill Cosby is great and we are thankful to enjoy such talent! We wish that the Fatherhood cartoon would be released on DVD. Two seasons on Nick Nite (2004-2005 season run time and has been canceled). and twenty six episodes.. This was a great cartoon with values, please release this on DVD. And also Little Bill on DVD.
Happy viewing! And if you are looking for more funny shows, don't for get The PJ's with Eddie Murphy, Martin show, My wife and Kids, Jamie Foxx show, and What's happening! Great shows, real T.V.
Shipping was as expected, we are in the process of view all the DVD's to see how they play.
"Look, either you LOVE The Cosby Show, or you don't. I will not go into a lengthy discussion of what the show is about or what my favorite episodes/seasons are, since I believe others in the amazon community to be better versed and more expressive than myself in the language arts :)
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, The Cosby Show! It is the most fun show for me to watch, yes even some 20-years later (has it been that long... hmmm??). It is innocent fun, with sometimes corny messages (DEFINITELY not as bad as Disney channel shows, though), but seriously I can't stand most of what I see on TV lately. I mostly enjoy 30-minute sitcoms, and frankly there aren't too many of those around that don't get into politics/religion-bashing/other-people-bashing/crude sex jokes (I'm absolutely not a prude, but crudeness I find annoying lately). Kind of sick of the "Me"-culture these days, so I started ordering complete dvd series of my favorite shows, this being one of them. Sometimes, I just want to laugh at innocent silliness rather than a mean joke or put-down. The world has enough jerks to fill my cup in that regard, so The Cosby Show is my retreat from that.
Frankly, I'm not sure you can force this show on your children if they have already been exposed & addicted to the unadulterated crap out there, but certainly worth a try. A major aspect of the message this show repeatedly conveys is R-E-S-P-E-C-T (respecting the authority of parents, respecting siblings, respecting friends, respecting oneself, respecting one's fallibility/limits, respecting achievement at a proper cost - not the do or die mentality, respecting that people may have differing opinions, respecting that 2 adults can choose for themselves what role to play in a marriage/family, respecting that women are equal to men without the outright anti-men feminism en vogue these days, etc).
I believe Bill Cosby (and staff) did a superb job casting each character. I also believe that if the characters had been cast any other way, the show may not have been nearly as good as it was/is. I remember every character: Claire's soft motherliness always reminded me of my mom when I was a child, Theo's lack of scholarly motivation reminded me of my brother at times, Cliff made me wish my dad was more like him (so I took my dad's ways and added Cliff's advise on top), Rudy's frustrations at being the youngest reminded me of myself at times, and occasionally my girlfriend and I will laughingly refer to the Vanessa character because of how annoyingly whiny, nosy and gossipy that character was - come on, we all know at least 1 person in our life who whines & complains about everything, gossips, but acts all innocent and unassuming at the same time (lol).
If I were to choose which compilation set I enjoy best, it would be 1&2 vs 3&4 (the only 2 I had the financial ability to purchase for now). I think it is because I like having a very young child vs pre-adolescent child in family shows. That is why I also really want to get the last couple of seasons when Olivia was around. Bill Cosby has a really fun-loving way of connecting with children that age on the show, bringing out the best in him and the other actors (just my personal opinion).
But in any case, you cannot go wrong with any season if all you compare it to is what is currently out there now in the genre/market."
Before I purchased from this seller, I looked at other sellers from which I could order the same product and have it shipped through Amazon Prime, however, their product was about $100.00 more expensive than from this seller, and it was the exact same product! Also, the shipping was faster than I expected and totally worth paying the $12.00 extra dollars. I'm very pleased with my purchase!
