For Colored Girls

This film targets African American women and indeed the audience I screened the film with was made up of primarily women. It is a story that they will best relate to. There are several subplots which make up the whole of the film. In one story Whoopi Goldberg plays a religious fanatic who yells, [...]

It was bittersweet to watch the last season of "The Cosby Show." As always, I enjoyed the laughs and the characters, but knowing this was the end made me wish it could have gone longer. Once again the season started in high gear when Sondra and Elvin are left "homeless" while waiting to move into [...]

Once again "The Cosby Show" starts with a bang. In the beginning of this sixth season Denise comes home from Africa with quite a surprise; she's married with a young step-daughter.

Season 3 of "The Cosby Show" proves to be much more than just comedy. After watching the first two seasons I can start to see some of the public service announcements and other educational lessons scripted to teach the characters a lesson, but clearly intending to educate the viewers. The big [...]

Season four of ''The Cosby Show'' starts off with bang as Sondra and Elvin announce they will not be attending graduate school.

The second season of "The Cosby Show" is as funny as ever. Bill Cosby's facial expressions say much more than anything I've ever heard spoken. From the comical rolling of his eyes when he is teasing to the almost stern look he gives when the kids say something outrageous, Cliff Huxtable could [...]

"The Cosby Show" is truly upbeat and hilarious. I laughed so hard at times I had to go back to see if I missed anything as I recovered! Bill Cosby does an amazing job finding humor in day to day child rearing. Whether the topic is mediating minor squabbles or discussing the seriousness of drug [...]
