Episode Summary

Julius begins to take marriage advice from "The Oprah Winfrey Show" leading Rochelle to suspect an affair. Meanwhile, Chris volunteers for the "Big Brothers" program and is shocked when he learns the identity of his "little brother".

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Chris becomes a big brother.

    The big brother concept has been done to death on nearly every sitcom. I do not understand why television programs keep going back to it when it rarely produces classics (if ever).

    That being said this was actually a fine episode of Everybody Hates Chris. Some witty lines, and not just Chris Rock's narration, Julius and the always hilarious Jerome contributed some good humor here. "Little dude from across the street" just never seems to get old.

    "You sound like a white woman". I do not know what the future holds for Everybody Hates Chris after this season but if they can bang out quality like this on a weekly basis the show might stand a chance.moreless
