One of the best shows EVER presented on TV...
27 September 2006 | by (the Mojave Desert, CA) – See all my reviews

This two-season sitcom is a masterpiece of mid-century television production. That this fine show even made it to prime-time television is amazing enough. This is high quality TV: shot to film, great scoring/soundtrack, interesting scripts, even pretty decent cinematography.

And, no laugh-track.

Character-driven plot lines that revolve around bachelor/teacher Chett Kincaid's adventures: simply stated (by Bill Cosby in the bonus Interview), Chett is a guy that things happen to...Chet tries to get from point A to point B...but, in-between, all sorts of other things occur in his day-to-day activities.

Quincy Jones does the music...fabulous tunes!

This series is arguably Bill Cosby's greatest achievement.

Definitely my favorite Cosby Show of all time.
