Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • A blackout.

    Everybody Hates Chris has been sort of drifting lately. The critics aren't talking about it and the ratings certainly aren't at an all time high, but this was one of the better episodes this season.

    Whenever the show brings in old comedians such as Jason Alexander or Richard Lewis they provide a bundle of laughs, as was the case here with Steve Landesberg (Barney Miller). He played his role perfectly as a racist white man.

    Unfortunately the Rochelle storyline was pretty lackluster and the scenes with her dancing and with her friend were very awkward. But overall an above average installment of the show.moreless
