Everybody Hates Chris: Season 1

While Chris's family is much more functional than Roseanne's clan, it, too, etches a vivid portrait of a family struggling to get by, as when Rochelle explains to Julius the "debt system" of paying bills. But most of the humor is universal, from Chris's life-changing discovery of his father's Playboy magazine to his anxiety over Picture Day at school. Everybody Hates Chris also manages to show the love without being mawkishly sentimental. In the pilot, narrator Rock notes that his father didn't express his feelings, but as he was only one of four fathers on the block, his "'I'll see you in the morning' meant he'd be coming home. And that was his way of saying, 'I love you.'" --Donald Liebenson

All the episodes are called Everyone Hates The ... and each episode keeps getting better and better. To me, my favourite is episode 7 called Everyone Hates The Babysitter. Julius and Rochelle decide to have a date night and hire this girl to babysit the three kids. She always leaves the house to take care of her business. That in itself is funny but then Julius and Rochelle are at a restaurant that doesn't accept their coupon and the restaurant gets robbed.
It's such a great show and you will be in stitches watching it. Chris Rock narrates perfectly and you can see his life coming to life in each episode. I love it and hope you enjoy it and are as entertained by it as much as I am. I can't wait to get my copy.
What makes this show funny is the reason The Wonder Years were funny. A family show covering LIFE, real life-where there is so much humor.
It is worth it-YES. The humor crosses color lines and is worth it

I loved every show!!
Anyway, I must say I got my money's worth and more out of season one. All of the actors are talented. However, in season one I can't say that Chris' brother did much for me at all. I guess it is mostly a question of the concept of the character. That character is simply a chick magnet. That character simply doesn't have to do much. But the father, mother and little sister are all hillarious. I must say though that I think perhaps the mother got too much of a role in the first season, but if the father was always at work then I guess that was what life was all about, life with mom. I love how Chris accused his mother of being a ghetto snob. That is such a riot. The father is a penny pincher, a real cheapo, that is funny too, but not nearly as funny. And the story is so real at times that I feel like slapping the wife. I can just see Chris' mother quitting her jobs telling folks how her man has two or three jobs. And then the mother tries to work from home, another funny concept. I come away feeling sorry for the father though. I think the father is the hero of that family. I also like Chris' friend, he seems like a real buddy and all around good guy.Read more ›

Loved season 1 so I ordered season 2. My only complaint is that the case was damaged during shipping, so I have to buy a new one.Published 2 months ago by Maisha
Every Body Hates Chris Season 1 was an excellent choice. It is so funny.
Received in excellent condition and on time.
We bought several of these dvds. I have a grandson about the same age as 'Chris', and we can relate to some of the same predicaments that they both get themselves into. Read morePublished 11 months ago by chongobongo
