Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Better than the pilot

    Although the first episode was a great introduction to the series, this episode is really where the show starts to develop the characters with hilarious scenes, the opening scene being brilliant, Chris getting pepper-sprayed and almost hit by a car.

    The conversation between Chris Rock and his father was also brilliantly done, with both sides of the conversation being terrific, a credit to the writers.

    The ending was, of course, one that proved that everybody hates Chris.

    Overall, the episode goes into depth the relationship between Keisha and Chris which is really a non-relationship and Chris and his siblings.moreless
  • The Show Stays true to life

    I can truly understand the point of view that Chris Rock was trying to get across. It shows that the problems that young boys go through to get girls whicj I can still relate to. Chris said he didn't know much about sex at age 13 and also said he didn't lose his virginity until he was a young adult. This episode was a real life situation and it relates to all ages and genders. that is what i liked most about this episode

  • Keisha is the love of Chris Rock's young life. Since Everybody Hates Chris there is no doubt about how it is going to turn out. But it is not what you say or do, but how you say it or do it that matters. Here they do it funny.moreless

    Many of said that the sitcom is dead. I would have to say that is true. This is not a traditional sitcom. However, it comes closer than most anything else on the screen to doing what sitcom's used to do: Make us laugh.

    Chris has fallen in love with his next door neighbor, Keisha. His little brother is a guy the girls drool over. When said little brother gets a "D," Keisha becomes his tutor. Chris walks in on their tutoring session only to find the two in a lip lock. The rise and fall of this non-relationship is hilarious. Chris swears off Keisha forever. Or at least until the next day when she says, "Hi, Chris."

    The acting and the writing here are superb. The women throwing themselves at Chris' father was a bit over the top, but the rest was spot on.moreless
