I vividly remember watching this show as a young kid and thought it was just great. First, I loved the opening theme music. The plots were very memorable. I too remember the one about the foul mouthed basketball player. Another one that sticks out in my mind was when he had to visit his parents and they were always arguing like a typical old couple. It was a text book lesson in comedic timing between two people as they hurled insults at each other. I liked the fact that there was no laugh track so I used my own judgment as to what I thought was funny versus not funny. This show was pure genius for the reasons mentioned that only somebody of Cosby's caliber could pull off. It was a one season wonder. i am going to rent the DVDs and start reliving them now.
