Reliving TV Show Memories . . .

Been watching the complete box set DVDs of the Cosby Show these past few weeks, thanks to my best friend, Tarrell, who lent the collection to me. At first I thought this would be one of those borrows that I end up giving back barely touched. Because, see, I have so little time to watch movies at home anymore. But, turns out I was so very wrong.

I always liked this show growing up in the 80s, but I was surprised by how well it still holds up today! I swear, when I pop in a DVD, I'm instantly drawn back into the show like as if I never left. At the same time, I can feel the 80s nostalgia wash over me and I find myself thinking of those happy go-lucky years when I was very young and carefree.

Was anyone else into this show? I was in the 3rd grade when it first aired, and watching the 1st season now I see I must have been catching this from the very beginning, as all of the episodes are so familiar to me. What a great production this was!

Oh, and T, you're absolutely right . . . Phylicia Rashad really is quite beautiful! I was too young to appreciate it at the time (guess she was too much of a mother figure for me), but now that I'm older I definitely see it. Hoo, boy!

Now I'm addicted. I rush home from work and it's the first thing I put on after working out and winding down. I watch on average 3 episodes per day, more on weekends. What a fun treat! I might have to purchase this set for when I have kids.


  1. I did love the show, though I had others I liked much better. Lately I've been watching all the old episodes of MacGyver. Almost done with season 1 and there are 7 full seasons.

  2. Ha -- MacG was another great one. What 8-yr old boy didn't love this show? I'm not saying you're an 8 yr-old boy (or ever was one), but yet . . . this was classic 80s television at its best! No one can deny it. :)


Panama Trip - Day 1: Here There Be Balboas!

In late May, 2017 I embarked on a trip of a lifetime. A trip to Panama's steamy tropical province, Bocas del Toro. Now, before 2017 ...
