Product Description

Inspired by his childhood experiences, comedian Chris Rock narrates the hilarious, touching story of a teenager growing up as the eldest of children in Brooklyn, New York during the early 1980s.

Amazon.com

Beginning with its assured pilot episode, it's love at first sight for Everybody Hates Chris. This loosely autobiographical family sitcom has a distinctive voice (belonging to co-creator Chris Rock, who also serves as narrator) and a strong sense of time (1982-83) and place (Brooklyn's Bed-Stuy neighborhood). For Chris (the winning Tyler James Williams), turning 13 is anything but a wonder year. He is the only black kid in an all-white junior high school (to which he is bused) that offers him "not a Harvard-type education, just not a sticking-up-a-liquor-store-type education." At school, he is befriended by the geeky Greg (Vincent Martella), and mercilessly tormented by the red-haired bully Joey Caruso (Travis T. Flory). At home, his father, Julius, (former NFL player Terry Crews) works two jobs to make ends meet, and knows the cost of everything ("That's 49 cents of spilt milk on my table"). His mother, Rochelle (Tichina Arnold), also works part-time and knows "100 recipes for whooping ass." Chris is often called upon to be "the emergency adult" to his younger brother, Drew (Tequan Richmond), who is taller than Chris and better at everything from karate to girls, and his younger sister, Tonya (Imani Hakim), who is Daddy's favorite and delights in getting Chris into trouble.

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

This is one of the funniest shows around. I really love it. Chris Rock narrates, while actors act out the story of his childhood when he was 13 years old. It's about Chris and his family moving out of the projects and making a new start. Chris goes to school by himself to a good school in an Italian neighborhood (a real long haul) while his two siblings (younger brother Drew and younger sister Tonya go to their same school) so he has to learn to fight new battles as he tries to fit in. His first day there he faces a bully but also makes a new friend Greg (who couldn't win a fight if he tried). Back at home there is his dad Julius (played by the hilarious Terry Crews) and his take-no-nonsense mum Rochelle. His dad is really tight and tries to save money wherever he can and however he can.

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.

Comedian Chris Rock created Everyone Hates Chris. This show is a cross between American Graffitti and The Wonder Years.

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 just purchased this DVD based on the few shows that I watched. The show is about Chris Rock family and school life in his early teens. Anyone can relate to his family (the bratty youngest child, the perfect child, mom who can get over on dad anytime and the loving, but cheap father).

I loved every show!!

Everybody Hates Chris is the funniest show that has ever been made. The family is crazy. The mom can't stop eating so many chocolate turtles! I want the DVD to be out soon.

One of the funniest TV shows around. Tells of this kid's trials and tribulations of dealing with his family, growing up in a primarily black urban neighborhood while being bussed to an all white school. This is a must. Hysterical!!! Can't wait for Season 2 to come out.

I bought season one of "Everybody Hates Chris" used at a pawn shop. The lady at the pawn shop let me have the first season for FIVE DOLLARS, so if I hated the show I wouldn't be out much money. Being a white male I wasn't sure I would like this show. I have liked somes shows with mostly black casts but not everything appeals to me. For instance, I never cared for Living Color or the Wayman brothers. However, back in the day I used to watch "Good Times" all the time. I also used to watch "What's Happening", even though it was not as good as "Good Times", imo.

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.

Add to that some of Malcolm In The Middle's humor, and you got one of the finest shows on TV. Chris Rock and Ali Roi have managed a witty show with characters many of us can relate to, well written plot lines, and some 80s nostalgia.
