Quotes

Bill Cosby: Eyes, hair, body, and mind. That's the worst part. Can't stop it either. It's not senility. My grandfather told me about senility, I'm not worried about that. My grandfather said, "When you become senile, you won't know it."

Why debate?
6 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I refuse to debate whether "Himself" was better than "49". All I know is I've seen "Himself" hundreds of times on TV and can't understand why "49" has not even made it to DVD yet (as of Aug. '08). Because this one speaks specifically to the aging process, and I watched it back then when I was in my 20s, I am now 49, and can see that so much of it was true. There must be contractual hangups because last I heard, Cosby is still ratings gold and it must be someone's job to bring these older projects to DVD.

I'm sure the copy guard is intact so making a homemade DVD copy will have to wait until I can catch "49" on cable. But that's just it, I believe the same legalities that must be delaying the DVD must be preventing any airing of this project, because I certainly have been on the lookout over the years. It's a shame.
