Their skin color is less revolutionary in the Obama age, of course, but there's still something subversively 
honest and creatively unmatched about the Huxtable family. Given The Cosby Show's constant presence in reruns, however, is this 8-season, 26-disc set worth your recession dollar? Maybe not. Aside from a new interview with Dr. Cosby himself, and a small hardcover copy of the first script, most everything's been seen before. On the plus side: Even rampant clip repetition within the bonus materials (a 2002 NBC retrospective, two blooper reels) can't 
 diminish this show's eminently watchable heart. B
