Well, it streeted today, and I know it’s going to make a lot of folks happy. This first season boxed set from Urbanworks contains all twenty-four first season episodes spread over three discs. The fourth disc is for the ninety-minute TV special, “The Cosby Show: A Look Back,” which aired in 2002. It’s mostly a ginormous highlight reel for the entirety of the show’s run, though it also comes with deleted scenes, bloopers, audition footage and the cast looking back on the show.
This show’s so solid, it’s hard to pick favorites. However, I’ll do my best: this is the season that has Theo and Cliff discussing how much money it takes to get ahead in the world (the Monopoly bit from the pilot), Dizzy Gillespie’s appearance, and Cliff’s track rematch among the episodes. Nice.
