  • Laundromats and purchasing TVs - sound boring but put into this show and they become very entertaining

    After a six month hiatus in Australia, Chris finally comes back for the eighth episode, showing just how underappreciated the show is here but nonetheless I still found this episode to be quite entertaining, especially regarding Rochelle trying to pay her credit card bills with a credit card and Julius going over the whole contract aswell as predicting how much he would regret going since Rochelle would get obsessed with buying stuff with credit.

    The laundromat was very well written and shows just how much the universe seems to hate Chris until his sister surprisingly shows a nice side and his brother uses his skills to get the clothes re-white-ified.

    For once, everything is resolved until... Yep, Chris' life is still unlucky.
  • Chris suffers the indignity of the laundrymat.

    After the previous classic Halloween episode, it would be hard to come up with something "timeless." This episode acheives "pretty good."
    Cheap Julius wakes up to his wife's insisting on getting a new television. Their trip to the appliance store is a means of exposing his wife's penchant for credit purchases. His being so easily manipulated was a little predictable, but humorous all the same.
    Chris suffers sleep deprivation because he spends so much time on the bus. With his parents off looking for a new TV, he is assinged to take his brother and sister to the laundromat. Chris fights with his sister is realistic. His brother's effect on the ladies is not. Rocky gets played on the new tv, or as Julius calls it "Apollo," and brother and sister make up. Everything is ok in the world. At least until Chris hears his mother's scream after she finds out that he has shrunk all the clothes.
