The Cosby Show Season 1 (2014) – By Jason S. Lockard

Bill Cosby is not just a great stand-up comedian he is a tremendous actor. From starring in I Spy to The Bill Cosby Show to movies. After a couple less than stellar attempts at shows NBC wanted The Cos to try a show on their Thursday night line-up little did they know he would bring to the small screen one of the best family sitcoms of the 80s if not all time. Now thanks to Mill Creek Entertainment we can relive the beginning of this great series with The Cosby Show Season 1 on DVD.

The Cosby Show follows The Huxtable Family; Dr. Heathcliff (Bill Cosby), his wife Clarie (Phylicia Rashad) a lawyer and their 5 children Sondra, Denise, Theo, Vanessa and Rudy in their everyday lives. The children’s troubles in school to dating to parenting. It seemed like everything was funnier in the Huxtable house.

The first season included 24 episodes. Some of the best were; The Shirt Story: Cliff forces Theo to return an expensive designer shirt, so Theo agrees to let Denise try to make a copy of it with hilarious results. How Ugly is He?: Vanessa has been keeping her new boyfriend away from Cliff because they say he is too rude to them. Independence Day: Theo let’s the sister of a friend pierce his ear as a "symbol of independence", but it was actually to impress a girl. Slumber Party: Rudy has a slumber party and Peter, a boy next door who never say a word, joins the party. So it’s up to Cliff to entertain the kids.

This is beginning of a eight year run of a family sitcom that anyone who watches one episode is bound to be hooked! The audio and video is crisp and DVD menu is easy to access and at just under 10 dollars it’s a steal! I highly suggest you head over to and pick up a copy today!
