Cosby Show DVD & Giveaway

Disclosure: I received a complimentary DVD to help facilitate my review. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.




Mill Creek Entertainment is your one-stop shop for so many kinds of movies, including the old TV shows (on DVD) you know and loved. One of my all-time favorites was The Cosby Show. There hasn't been one episode I've seen that didn't make me laugh. I love the sometimes subtle, sometimes overt humor of Dr. Huxtable, and the easy comeback humor from his wife. I also love that Dr. Huxtable puts potato chips on his subs (call me strange, I think that's delicious!).

I watched this when I was a kid, and I watched re-runs when I got older. Now, I have Seasons 3 &4 (in one package) in the house, so I can re-visit the show whenever I would like to see it.

If you've seen the show, I bet you can recall at least one scene that struck you as funny, no matter how long it's been since you've seen it. This series was also very family friendly, so I don't have to worry what's going to come across the screen if my kids happen into the room (and I like that, a lot).

It's also a sitcom that transcends generations. My husband and I were laughing about how we relate to the older shows as parents (today), when we used to relate to them from the kids' perspective years ago. That makes watching them now even more fun because we get to compare the two (and boy are our viewpoints different now from what they used to be ;) ).

You can see the names of the shows on this 2-season set by visiting the website
One lucky winner gets to this two-season set sent to their home.

Sorry had to delete my 1st comment as my computer acted up.

I love Bill Cosby and admire him with great respect. Not only is he a wonderful comedian but he is a very smart and well educated gentleman. He played the part of Dr. Huxtable to perfection - mainly since he, himself was the father of 5 very bright and precocious children.

Sandee said...

I too love this show. I watched every episode. What a neat family.

Have a fabulous day. :)

I just love this show. Such funny lines and great moral stories.

Robin said...

Loved The Cosby Show.

Interesting point about family shows that you watch as a kid vs. an adult. You are right. I tended to see things from the Kid Point Of View back then and now see them from the Adult Point of View. Very different!!!
