    "Everybody Hates a Liar" is an amusing tale as well as a realistic commentary on how a misread gesture can expand so quickly. Chris went from zero to hero overnight when a girl everyone admired kissed him in public. This led to the main protagonist enjoying some brief popularity, but in classic sitcom fashion everything quickly came crashing down for him.

    The episode also featured a brief, but funny, guest spot by The View's Whoopi Goldberg. Goldberg played the mother of the aforementioned girl, and perfectly portrayed the role of an overly protective grandmother. I would not mind her becoming a recurring castmember on EHC.

    This by far was the best episode so far of the season. Chris trying to impress the neighbourhood by 'accidently' pretending to kiss Tasha after he kills a mouse for her sends gossip waves through the neighbourhood - which leads right back to her. This doesn't set well with Tasha's grandmother Louise (the hard-ass) and she makes sure that Rochelle knows about it. Their confrontation is pricless especially 'The Seven Words You Can't Say on Television' look. Drew jealously thinks that Rochelle is paying more attention to Chris and Tonya than to him. Julius must redeem all of the trading stamps he's been saving so he buys the only thing left in the shop - a canoe. When the family gets home, it's gone!! Haha, very funny.
