The Bill Cosby Show: Season One, Cosby's Emmy-nominated first situation comedy (featuring 26 fully restored uncut episodes from the 1969-70 season), is a fresh mix of intelligent character studies and real-life situations, seamlessly infused with his trademark sense of humor and positive outlook.
Chet Kincaid (Cosby) is a gym teacher at an urban high school in Los Angeles, an all-around good guy and an inspiration to his friends, family and students. Chet's good heart gets him into tons of predicaments, such as losing a one-on-one basketball game to a student he considered too short to make the team, his accidental involvement in a domestic dispute when he answers a pay phone and going on a date in a borrowed garbage truck.
Includes music by Quincy Jones and guest appearances by: Academy Award-winner Lou Gossett Jr. (An Officer And A Gentleman), Henry Fonda (On Golden Pond), Cicely Tyson ("Roots"), Elsa Lanchester (Bride Of Frankenstein), Wally Cox ("Mr. Peepers") And many others...

"The use of "slick" racing tires, which are entirely smooth, allows a maximum of rubber in contact with the road, and therefore maximum acceleration of a powerful hot rod from a standing start. The "Four Slicks" in question are not only fans of hot-rodding, but are also rather slick individuals, and so the name fits them well. Charlie, Mark, Jon, Frankie, and Ben grew up together in Fresno, California, where they fielded a series of modified Willys in the late 1950's, with moderate success on the local drag racing circuit. With the intention of trying their luck on the dragstrip in Paris, Texas, they headed south on highway 99, but messed up their directions somewhere near Barstow and soon arrived (to their amazement) in Paris, France. It did not take them long to notice the charms of the lovely French chicks, and they decided to stay in their new country. They started a rock 'n' roll band to pass the time. They sing in English, their native language; naturally their lyrics are about cars, chicks, and booze. After a while, Frankie got a job in a small country town hot-rodding the farmers' tractors, so Ben stepped in to play bass. Life is good for them in France and their only regrets are the high price of gas and the difficulty of finding spare parts for their cars."
I, Jihad Jerry, wish to proclaim that mine is not a holy war. Many of
you have asked me why a man such as myself who is not a Muslim choose
to appropriate the name and dress of a culture not my own. I say to you
that I wear this Turban not to hide from Justice but to perform it. The
enemy is not the Muslim, Jew or Christian but stupidity itself.
Join me on this crusade against idiocy.
