I loved this series when it was first shown in the UK. I am embarrassed and ashamed to admit that it was the first time that I had ever thought about family life in another racial group than my own and (at the time) I found this series revelatory. Leaving that issue aside (and racial issues were seldom mentioned in it), this was a brilliant series. The Americans do slightly schmaltzy family series extremely well, for a start. Secondly, the towering talent of Bill Cosby lifted this series way above the average. He has such marvellous presence that he could have made almost any old rubbish seem marvellous - and this wasn't any old rubbish. Every character in the series was beautifully played and the episodes were just as beautifully written. In fact, it won a whole series of awards. Because Cosby's father in the series was supposed to be a jazz trombonist, many wonderful musicians featured in the programme, including BB King, Sammy Davis JR and Stevie Wonder. I think this is a wonderful series that stands the test of time.
Sometimes it can be a little gushlingly sweet especially if you watch too many episodes back to back but to be honest, with all the violence and sex and rubbish on TV at the moment, it's a real pleasure to watch this.
All the kids face all kinds of problems growing up from first loves and crushes to first cars and learning responsiblity and independence, the parents Clair and Cliff discipline, punish, encourage, teach and nurture their children in their own unique style, no shouting, smacking or out of control situations here just alot of patience, love and understanding.
The comedy is first class with some brilliant turns from Bill Cosby, he delivers some killer lines with a dead pan face and you know that everyone on the show has had a great time making it. The chemistry between Clair and Cliff is great to watch and they surely must make the best parents in the whole world. My 9 year old loves it and wants all the other series. It is great for all ages, everyone will love it, will make a fantastic present.
