I thought that it was a great show.
7 August 2012 | by barrysfavoriteSee all my reviews

I really enjoyed The Cosby Mysteries. The cast was outstanding and the mysteries were fun. The characters were all slightly eccentric but the relationships were very real. Each episode was a mystery but the relationships were equally as important to the stories as the who did its. I think that this show may have been way before its time. To me, it had a very similar vibe as "Bored to Death" another great mystery series that was on HBO more than twenty years after The Cosby Mysteries. I am sorry that more people didn't find The Cosby Mysteries as enjoyable as I did. Perhaps Mr. Cosby will revisit this one day and it will reach a wider audience and be as popular as I think that it deserved to be.
