    That's right, Amazon is taking (unofficially) orders for both seasons to be released at the same time on June 5th for a discount price of $18.69 each.  Grab them while they're hot!

    I just got seasons 3 & 4 yesterday, the packaging is cheap, a few pics in the back, no special features. The side of the box is awful. Besides only 3 disc on each season that means 8 episode per disc.........image and sound must be pretty bad for a DVD. I'm not impressed by it.

    That is so very disappointing.
    Especially for such a good show.

    As you probably know by now, the show is, at least, uncut. This does make it better then any of the syndicated versions.

    Yes all the shows are complete and uncut & that's greatbut the packaging is the worst I've ever seen for a TV show. I would've understand if The Cosby Show would've been an marginal show, but it was the biggest sit-com of the 80s, it deserve a better treatement than what they put on season 3 & 4. No special features, no interviews, nothing......First Look Home Entertainment has done a poor job.

    The lack of extras was really disappointing but the one thing I hated the most was the lack of a "Play All" feature like in seasons one and two. I liked how I just pressed play all and I could sit back, relax and watch the 8 episodes on the disc.

    I agree with TheHitDog. I missed being able to play all episodes in sucession without further interaction.

    It is possible to begin playing the next episode by pressing the Next Track button while the credits were playing, but that's not an intuitive way to play all episodes.

    I was also kind of expecting bloopers like they did on the Seaon 2 set, but oh well...

    to me packaging is least important. i don't care too much if the packaging (of course it must be decent) but i like what firstlook did with the actual episodes themselves. the quality isn't super but it's good. the episodes are in airdate order not production order (or whatever urbanworks did???) and we know they will probably be uncut (or at least everything so far has been) the packaging and special features were much better with urbanworks but i was much more disappointed with them (plus i didn't like how season 1 and 2 looked on the shelf together with different sizes. and plus i love that firstlook releases two at a time at a fair price. tvshowsondvd.com makes it look as if seasons 5 and 6 will be released together as well on november 6th.
