  • Chris goes to the homecoming dance.

    6.0
    A few years ago everybody was talking about Everybody Hates Chris. It was a fresh new comedy and was proving that a family comedy with an African American could still succeed on television in the 2000's.



    Unfortunately those glory days are long gone and the show is just the same formulaic mediocrity you can find on any network. Terry Crews used to be hilarious as the father, but the elements that made him great, his cheapness and his anger have been diluted into virtual unrecognition.



    Tyler James Williams is too old to play the role but his acting certainly hasn't matured with him. Outside of a few Chris Rock narrations and The Cosby Show parody this was a pretty laugh-free episode.moreless

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • The Cosby Show

      Most of the scenes that feature members of the Huckstable family contain references to the classic TV series The Cosby Show. The names Jenise and Dr. Clint Huckstable is an allusion to The Cosby Show, and its characters Dr. Cliff Huxtable and his daughter Denise, portrayed by Bill Cosby and Lisa Bonet. The manner in which Dr. Clint Huckstable talks in is reminiscent to how Bill Cosby talks. How the Huckstables are introduced is also alluding to The Cosby Show
