The Bachelors' Bachelor!
27 March 2006 | by Roy-240See all my reviews

This was his BEST show! The heck with the Huxtables and whatever else Cosby did. This was his BEST show! 2 of my favorite episodes was when he subbed for a driver's ed class and when he invited his buddies over to watch a very important football game on his brand new TV. Well, his buddies saw the game but Chet didn't! All the other episode were good also. I wonder if any actors from the series became famous. What a great series with a great theme song and this show along with Room 222 made TV worth watching. I was a 13 when this series came out and decided then that I would NOT marry and tailor my bachelor life just like Chet Kincaid. He was the Bachelors' Bachelor! Hickey Burr! Hickey Burr Hickey Burr!!!! Hickey Burr!! And I don't understand why some previous comments have to mention race. ADDED ON October 2006- You can save the theme song on your computer- http://www.megaupload.com/?d=MQRE7761
