They juggled their successful careers in medicine and law while raising five children who constantly test the limits. With humor and insight, which only comes with experience, the couple guides their children through the peaks and pitfalls of everyday life. Opting for reality-based humor instead of slapstick comedy, The Cosby Show provides a warm-hearted look at the complexity of human behavior.
