2 Chubby Rain, I, too, am glad to see all of those old JumpTheShark comments...I don't see IceMouth (the one who'd announced such on the JumpTheShark or BoneTheFish entry lately but JTSComments, who must be the same person as IceMouth, different account, posted a lot... How about some that just from MEMORY, of my rememered comments from someone on Cosby? (From JumpTheShark, not the full comment). And let's talk about Cliff Huxtable's, or, Bill Cosby's Music. ....Louis Armstrong. I'm pretty sure that he was just spinnin' when he sang "Ain't Misbeahving'". B.B.King...that song was about whorehouses and prostitution...The Cosby Show does have some pretty good ideas in them but they are marred all the same by hypocrisy and by snobbery. -- Submitted By: (PokeyJHorse) on December 23, 2014, 11:59 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote

4 Believe me, this show was the business in the 1980s. There were exit stage rights, new kids in town, puberties and unbelievable facts. The Cosby Show first boned when another Cosby kid (Sondra) was added. Cosby said they only had four children in the beginning. Then, over time, new characters like Elvin and Cockaroach were added. Cosby went through his black consciousness phase and brought Denise to Hillman. Because of the actors hair, Cockaroach was no longer on the show. The only one with steady friendships on there was Rudy. Rudy never hit it off with Bud, which was a disappointment for all. How were Cosby's parents still alive? How many grandparents were on that show?! The worst change to happen to the show was Lisa Bonet going on to star on A Different World. The show fell apart after that. Sandra became a huge word that rhymes with witch. Theo wasn't as lovable after he hit puberty. His charm wore off. Rudy grew a mustache and Vanessa had her share of terrible hairdos. The fish was tailless once Denise's husband Martin and Raven Simone joined the ensemble. Raven brought nothing to the show and Theo bloomed into an intelligent young man over night. Of course, I was as heartbroken as Dwayne Wayne was over my crush marrying plain old Martin. There were still some good episodes here and there, but it wasn't as good as it was at first. Over the summer of 90, we were informed through TV Guide that yet aaanother person was coming to stay in the Huxtable household. Who else but Erica Alexander as, the never mentioned before season 7, Cousin Pam. She was brought on to be like an urban Cosby kid. The premise failed because Pam's friend, Charlamane, had a voice which sounded like nails on a chalkboard. The last episode aired after the LA Riots coverage, if I remember correctly. Theo graduated which served as the final fact that Heathcliff was an excellent well educated father. All in all, it was a good show, but the show went in too many different directions. -- Submitted By: () on September 13, 2014, 8:48 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
5 For a couple who is supposed to be a doctor and a lawyer, Cliff and Clair suuuure spent a lot of time hanging around the house, playing cards with all twelve of the grandparents, performing musical numbers, bitching at their kids for drinking soda, and all around being annoying in general. I don't know ANY doctors or lawyers with that much free time on their hands. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 2, 2014, 5:52 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
6 OK let me get this straight. Cliff is a highly respected and venerated OBGYN in Brooklyn with umpteen years of experience examining countless pregnant women and delivering countless babies and yet he doesn't even suspect, let alone know just by looking at her, that Sondra is going to deliver more than one baby! -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 2, 2014, 5:50 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
7 When Olivia came. I know most sitcoms add a kid when the others get older, but they could have just let everyone grow up and adapted the storylines. Also, Vanessa's ridiculous hairstyle (trapezoid shaped afro with a tail in the middle. WHAT?????) Also, oversaturation with jazz musicians. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 2, 2014, 5:49 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
8 When Clair and Cliff said, "Why did we have 4 kids", they should have kept it that way. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 2, 2014, 5:48 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
9 If Pam was such a close relative, then why the hell hadn't we seen (or even heard of) her in the previous episodes?? We're supposed to believe that her mom would just leave her with distant relatives to go take care of another relative? Why didn't she just take Pam with her then? Maybe Pam's mom thought she was annoying too? -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 2, 2014, 5:42 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
10 The Cosby Show jumped the shark when the producers started focusing on new people, aka people we actually don't care about. Sondra and her hubby Elvin, Claire's sister, somebody's 9th cousin Pam, Denise and her husband and don't get me started on that damn Olivia. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 2, 2014, 5:39 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote

12 Theo was funny at first. Somewhere along the way he got turned into a goody-goody ass punk. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 2, 2014, 5:36 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
13 The show went downhill when they began to center episodes around Theo's goofy 30-something-looking YBR college buddies. I'll take Cockroach over those cornballs any day. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 2, 2014, 5:35 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote

15 When Cliff become pussy whipped. Clair would not let him do ANYTHING. Wouldn't even let him eat a damn sandwich (he's a fucking doctor, let the man eat a snack, he knows what he is doing) -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 2, 2014, 5:33 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
16 Did anybody else notice that Denise and Theo were seldom yelled at and instead were taught cutesy lessons, but when Vanessa and Rudy got into the slightest bit of trouble, Claire was hollering and threatening to put the smack down? -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 2, 2014, 5:32 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
17 Cousin Pam was really irritating and her friends were just as bad. If that was real life, all of them would have gotten the shit kicked out of them. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 2, 2014, 5:30 pm - (4 votes) - Login to Vote
18 The show declined in different stages. The first being a new opening number where they're dressed in pastels and doing a synchronized dance in these Mediterranean pastels. Second, Elvin as a regular was weak (I won't even bring up his Jamaican father). And Cousin Pam and her ghettoness was the final straw. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 2, 2014, 5:27 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
