Critic Reviews of "The Cosby Show - Season 1"NPRSeptember 17, 2018
The Cosby Show rarely came off like a revolutionary situation comedy - especially because the situations, often centered on loving-yet-sardonic parents Cliff and Clair Huxtable, seemed so ordinary.BBC.comSeptember 17, 2018
While The Cosby Show didn't tackle race issues directly, it quietly cracked open the door to change; both the way black people are perceived by others, and how black people view themselves.TIME MagazineSeptember 17, 2018
In the sentimental glow with which it is now remembered, it's easy to forget how astonishing it was that a comedy about black people could have that kind of success.GuardianSeptember 17, 2018
The fact that swaths of the population were engaging with an African American family, every week for half an hour, was massively important for popular culture. Never mind the specifics about what this engagement was about.DVDTalk.comSeptember 17, 2018
Perhaps it was the characters' close proximity to real people; perhaps it was the skill with which Cosby was able to mix big laughs with real truth and subtle life lessons. But people identified with the Huxtables.IGN MoviesSeptember 17, 2018
Unlike any other show in my long and illustrious history of television viewing, Cosby's sitcom registers at such a deep level of recognition that it doesn't merely seem like a show, but my own life.Los Angeles TimesSeptember 17, 2018
Viewers found the Huxtables--a communicative, strongly and wisely parented family that never encountered a problem it couldn't defeat in a half hour--just too good to be true.AV ClubSeptember 17, 2018
Of all its legacies, the one most noted when discussing The Cosby Show is its depictions of race and class. Nothing like it had been seen before on television, and nothing has had its level of impact since.New York TimesSeptember 17, 2018
For much of its eight seasons, "The Cosby Show" was foolproof happiness, and the primary source was Bill Cosby.VarietySeptember 17, 2018
Twenty years on, the clothes may seem loud and hideous, but Cosby's performance remains timeless.
