2.0 out of 5 stars Buyer Beware - Common Package Defect Nov. 18 2008
The Cosby Show is one of my all time favourite sitcoms. I was very excited to final have an entire series boxset. As an added bonus, Season 1 episodes are the original network versions, not the syndicated cuts that you get with the Season 1 boxset.

Now the bad part...

The first time I received this boxset, all of the DVD's had a line of ink/paint on them that came off from the edges of the cardboard packaging. I had the item replace and much to my surprise the second boxset had the same defect. I ended up having to return the boxset a 2nd time only to receive the same defect once again on the third boxset.

If you decide to purchase this boxset, be sure to inspect EVERY disc when it arrives. I also highly recommend that the DVD's be stored in either a spindle or seperate jewel cases as I have no confidence in the packaging.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing Packaging Jan. 6 2009
Unfortunately, the packaging was inadequately designed. Black lines appear on the reverse of the majority of the DVDs in the set. The marks are caused by the DVDs pressing up against the packaging. Black marks interefere with watching the DVDs - causes them to skip, stall and in some cases they prevent you from finishing the episodes.

1.0 out of 5 stars Damaged Goods June 16 2009
By Aaron G
I bought this gift set for my fiancee as a birthday present after she saw it advertised on TV. Unfortunately, when it arrived, half the discs had a line of paint streaking the backs of the discs. I returned it and got a replacement, only to find that it was even more damaged than the first set. I've since returned the set for a refund.
Honestly, I was disappointed with the manufacturer of the set. I wouldn't try buying this again until I learn that the packaging is completely redesigned.

The Cosby Show: 25th Anniversary Commemorative Edition
BUYER BEWARE: Obviously a fantastic show, but the way in which this product is manufactured and packaged results in problems for the end user (consumer). Be advised that each DVD is not suspended in its own circular, plastic tray, as is typical of discs. Rather, the entire collection is stored in books made of thick, white cardstock that is coated with the various graphics (or printed onto) for marketing. Each page of the DVD storage books contains two horizontal slits where the bare discs are inserted halfway, thus leaving them 50% exposed to the eye when the book is opened. Particles from the graphics that are printed onto each page flake off of the edges of the slits during transit. These particles then stick to the backs of the bare discs and, as slippage occurs, it causes scratches on the backs of the discs, which is severe in some cases. All of this occurs while the contents remain sealed and unopened. I played the first disc of Season 2, and it was severely scratched. These scratches had caused the disc to become unplayable. AND IT IS BRAND NEW!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Cosby Show - The Complete, Uncut Series! Sept. 15 2008
By Servo - Published on Amazon.com
Get your laugh on with those combustible Huxtables in The Cosby Show: 25th Anniversary Commemorative Edition!

For 8 hilarious seasons, viewers laughed with legendary comedian Bill Cosby's Dr. Heathcliff Huxtable and the talented cast that portrayed his TV family which at the time mirrored his real-life family as Cosby, too, married his college sweetheart and also had four daughters and one son.

Considered the most popular series of the 1980s, fans were dumbfounded that previous sets of The Cosby Show (from Urban Works Entertainment) were released with such poor treatment. Most notably, Season 1 which contained edited for syndication episodes instead of the original NBC broadcast versions.

Correcting the ills of the previous sets, this complete series release from First Look Home Entertainment features "every episode - original, uncut broadcast versions - from all 8 seasons" (plus special features old and new) on 26 discs all in an exclusive collectible set, and for a very reasonable price!

Previous Special Features include:

* "The Cosby Show: A Look Back" 90-minute special
* Bloopers
* Cliff's Parenting Tips
* Interview with Director Jay Sandrich
* Audio Commentary with Director Jay Sandrich

Exclusive Special Features include:

* All-new Bill Cosby Interview
* 25th Anniversary hardcover commemorative book
* Bill Cosby photo with Hirschfeld print
* A personal letter from Bill Cosby
* Digital Photo gallery
* Special blooper show

Well worth the wait and Highly Recommended!

3.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars for content 1 star for disc containers Nov. 15 2008
By D. DeVore - Published on Amazon.com
I just received my Cosby show Complete Box Set. The Box itself is heavy and looks like a book. I'm not sure how it stays closed after being opened. The 25th anniversary book which looks to contains the script of the first episode is nice. I was shocked and dismayed to see that the 4 disc containers that contained 2 seasons each was made out of cardboard. If I had known that I would not have purchased the complete series. I don't why Companies that produce complete dvd series sets can't seem to understand that cardboard and dvds don't go together. What's wrong with using dual sided platic slim cases or any other kind of plastic dvd casing or better yet the "steelbook" cases. It wasn't scratched up like the Mash complete collection was but there was black debris from the cardboard on about half the discs. It looks like it can be removed without damaging the discs but it is really irritating. Now I have to go out and buy some dvd cases or storage cases to hold these discs.

1.0 out of 5 stars Skipping - Scrambled DVD's March 27 2009
By RL4422 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Please notice that I am not the first to report this... it seems pretty common. I ignored the reviews, hoping that my set would work fine. It did not. My DVD's are all in really bad shape, and non of them will play in any of our DVD players. They are not scratched, but more like smudged. It's under the clear coat, so it's a manufacturing issue for the DVD's that were used. I had to send it back, and it broke my heart! The Cosby Show was my favorite and I was really looking forward to my Codby Show Marathon this weekend! :(

1.0 out of 5 stars Bad Quality April 4 2009
By Abhishek Agarwal - Published on Amazon.com
I love the serial and hence was excited to order the entire series of Bill Cosby. But the quality of the Dvd's are not good at all. They excessively skip and stall. I tried using them on a number of players with the same result.
