    I did a search, and didn't find anything on this news directly so here it is. The Cosby Show is coming thanks to TVShowsOnDVD.com for making this announcement. No date has been announced, no distributer has been named but as the article says if they're looking to buy banner ads then they're probably not looking to buy them for their own health.

    This is good news, I've been waiting for this announcement for a long time and can't wait for official word to come down.

    I liked the early episodes up until the oldest daughter moved out and did Angel Heart...

    I can't tell you how excited I was to see "Hang out with the Huxtables on DVD" on the site. I was literrally hyperventalating. :b I have wanted this show for so long and the fact that it won't be long till I own the first season excites me greatly.

    This is good news.

    Who's doing the set? Fox? Hopefully not Lion's Gate. Anybody but them.

    I hope Fox does it. I'd certainly buy the first 3 seasons and maybe the fourth.

    It's not Fox doing it, I know that much. I haven't been able to dig up much information, but it sounds like it may be a direct response thing that Carsey/Werner is doing themselves.

    that's surprising, I was under the impression after That 70's Show that Fox would be Carsey-Werner's distributer for the time being, plus, you'd think Fox would want to distribute surefire sellers like Cosby Show and Roseanne (which I am looking forward to even more)

    I will pass on The Cosby Show, but am waiting to see if it sells well enough to promt Carsey/Werner to release Roseanne, which I am surprised is not already out..

    I just want the episodes to be uncut. Anything else is icing on the cake.

    You mean second oldest daughter....Lisa Bonet from Angel Heart played Denise, while the oldest daughter Sandra was played by Sabrina Le Beauf.

    ....and back on topic. I'd buy the complete series in a heartbeat...along with Family Ties

    ....and one remember the good old days of Cosby/Family Ties and Cheers? Back when "Must See TV" on Thursday was actually just that---must see? [​IMG]

    I read a rumor from some TV forum that the DVDs are apparently being distributed by A&E.

    I hope not...many of their sets contain cuts. [​IMG]

    It's really a shame that Fox isn't doing this...and I don't think it's very fair to Fox that they don't get to do a major show like this yet they release God, the Devil, and Bob to show how well they can package a CW show.

    I agree, I think Fox probably picked up on C/W because Cosby and Roseanne are the crown jewels of the catalog, the ones we've waited for

    the only good thing I can see of it is if Cosby underperforms and then Fox screws over TCS fans the way they've done MTM fans... A&E would be genuinely impressed with similar numbers that would make Fox feel cold

    The reason I personally think MTM failed is because season sets were new back then...nowadays they're very common and most are bound to sell.

    As long as the episodes are unedited I'll be satisfied with whatever's released. And hopefully, if A&E is in charge of this release, they'll use slimpacks and not regular Amarays.

    Let's hope that the sexual harassment allegations against Bill Cosby don't affect this release....... [​IMG]
