    The beginning was all right. The rest was pointless.

    I know Cosby must have been trying to inspire young people to go to college with this episode, but it was still terribly dull and pretentious and did not make for good TV. It mostly consisted of Cliff reminiscing with his college professors, and then a very long commencement ceremony. Clair sang in the choir at the ceremony and the camera kept cutting to the doe-eyed awe and clasped hands of the Huxtable kids. It was just way too corny. The word "Hillman" is repeated so many times in this ep you would think Cosby was trying to encourage kids to go there--except it's fictional, so I don't see why so much time was spent fawning over Hillman, a college that doesn't even exist. The lady who was taking over the college gave the sappiest, most pretentious speech: "Why did I agree to accept this position as the president of Hillman? Because....it is....Hillman!" Snoozefest.moreless
