  • Stupid Sitcom! Kids show my ass! >:(

    1.0
    Ever since Nick@Nite started airing reruns of this show, I've never felt so much hatred for a television series since The Simpsons. Chris is an unlikable, disloyal, coward who is bullied everyday at school (by the same bully, mind you) and never once asks for help. In one episode, he told his Mom that he didn't want to go to school because he was picked on: does she call the school? Does she talk to the bully's parents? Does she talk to the bully? NOOOOOOOO!!!!!! She does ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!!!!!!!!! Lady, your son is being bullied in school everyday: DOOOO SOMETHING!!!!!! That's just the tip of the iceberg, as this show is full of unlikable, annoying and racially offensive characters. Chris' Dad, Julius, is so cheap, he makes Mr. Krabs look like Michael Jackson. Every scene he's in, he's always worrying about money. DUDE!!!!! Calm the duck down!!! Money is no object (in my opinion), as long as you have a roof over your head, food to eat, fresh water to drink, and a family that loves you, NOTHING ELSE MATTERS!!!!! Then there's Rochelle, Chris' mother: she is not a good parent. I know you're suppose to discipline your kids, but this is down right boarder line child abuse. "Knocking you into last night?" "Smacking the chaps of your lips?" "Making your behind hot as well?" Not even my mother threaten me like that, and when she did, it wasn't this harsh. She also swears right in front of her kids; I count in one episode where she swore twice in front of her kids. I'm surprised they don't swear to; remember: Monkey see, monkey do. Parent say, child do. Rochelle's constant use of profanity should have plagued these kids; speaking of which, Chris' brother and sister are (in a nutshell) my brother and sister. They're always going at it with each other, Tonya is always telling on them (sometimes when they do nothing wrong) and Drew is very annoying (not like my brother thought; my brother just loves hearing himself talk, Drew just likes stealing Chris' girls). The rest of the cast are no better: Kill-Moves is a schizophrenic hobo who should either be in a homeless shelter or an insane asylum (which ever comes first), Ritsky is a dude who sells stolen material and never goes to jail for it, Jerome is a thief who also never goes to jail, and James is a criminal who should be in juvy. Then there's Ms. Marcello: GOOD GOD, IS SHE ANNOYING!!!! She's racist, she knows she's racist, and she never gets any consequences for it. NEWS FLASH, RACIST TEACHERS ARE ALWAYS REPORTED AND FIRED!!!!! She had every right to be called a bitch in one episode, because that's what she is: a racist, stupid, annoying bitch! What's worse is the fact that this is based off of Chris Rock's childhood, which doesn't add up in the slightest. In reality, Chris grew up in the 70s (not 80s, you pricks), he was pulled from school because of bullying, he had no sister, and his Mom's name is Rosalie. If you're going to make a series based on your childhood, that stay true to the source material; your source material. And even as a series on it's own, it's bad; the characters are unlikable, each episode is torture porn for the main protagonist, and no one (I literally mean no one) does anything about it. Also the jokes are very offensive, very bad, and very poorly executed. The setting is also off; this is suppose to be Bedford Stuy, one of the most dangerous neighborhoods in the country. People don't just rob you, they go as far as to shoot you or stab you or jump you or whatever. Does the show have it's few of them: Greg is tolerable, the judge was okay, and the last episode was sort of good, as it's depicted almost frame for frame on how Chris Rock dropped out of high school and got his GED. But all and all, this series sucks balls; the characters are unlikable, the plot of each episode is the same, and the jokes are offensive and poorly executed. I don't recommend anyone to watch it unless you're someone who'll laugh at anything. That's all I have to say, I hope this series disappears forever one day.
  • I like it

    8.0
    Even though this show makes a fw offensive jokes, I think it made up for it with the clever diolauge and the intresting plots. All the charaters are worthy of notice and I think that the show really did its best it could do all the way to the end. Nice job people.
  • Amazing

    8.5
    Great comedy, just don't know how to describe it! :)
  • Not so good

    7.0
    I know this is gonna get many dislikes but... Chris is the dumbest in his family. He does anything to look cool (join with delinquents, go to an adult party being only 13, break his own brother's arm, really?). In my opinion the funniest parts are Julius and Rochelle's plots, they're great. However, the show still mentions innapropriate things openly.
  • evrey body hates chris is very funny and really interesting and it is my personal favorite just like the o.c

    i love watching evreybody hates chris and it is good that it is based on his life because someone might be a fan of chris rock and they can see how his chilhood used to be . it is an absolute entertaing hour to watch that and absolutly interesting evrey week on sunday i watch that i cant wait to see the next episode why cant it come on evrey day?? but i am glad it dosent come on evrey day because then i might like miss a few episodes so its better to come on once a week plus i cant wait till the next episode comes on and the whole week gets me thinking whats going to happen next???
  • i love it

    i think that chris rock did a tremendus job with the show its one of my favorites

  • This show is pretty good, but i have a few problems with this show.

    8.0
    Everybody Hates Chris is a funny show and i laugh at it, but i have a few problems with it. The only place they show this show is Nick@Nite well sometimes. I don't think they do that anymore. The problems are the bullies at school are mean to Chris and annoying, and basicly everyone hates him, that's he problem i have. The good thinks about the show is the funny Chris Rock and he narrates the show which i find funny. Now he has a brother named Drew Rock, Tanya Rock, and he has parents named Rachelle Rock, and Julius Rock. Now the funniest character would have to be Julius Rock. HE is so funny and he just cracks me up. Chris also has a best friend named Greg who is pretty funny. Overall 8/10.
  • actually decent

    8.0
    the first time i watched this show, i did not like it. But this week they have been having marathons and i enjoy it. a lot of the 80's jokes i probably do not get, but it is still good. the only thing i genuinely do not like is his mother, i don't like the personality nor do i like the actress. But i just ignore her most of the time. This is a pretty funny show and I think if people watched it they may like it. I recommend it. My overall grade is a B+ because as i said, i dislike his mother
  • This show cracks me up so much but there are a few problems though

    8.0
    "Everybody Hates Chris" is a great show and this show makes me laugh very hard. It isn't my favorite show because of the fact that I have a few problems with this show but it is very enjoyable and just plain hilarious. Also, the hilarious Chris Rock narrates this show about his childhood with Tyler James Williams as teenage Chris Rock. Chris Rock has a brother named Drew Rock, a sister named Tanya Rock, a mother named Rochelle Rock, and a father named Julius Rock. I love Terry Crews and he always cracks me up as Julius Rock (the man who worries about money alot). Chris Rock also has a best friend named Greg Wuliger. There are more characters as well such as Kill Moves, Mr. Omar, Doc, and more. My least favorite character in this show is Tonya. I just despise that girl so much, she always gets whatever she wants from Rochelle and Julius. She loves to get Chris and Drew in trouble especially Chris. She even blames them for her trouble that she causes. She also eavesdrops on the schemes that Chris or Drew are up to and she demands to keep her mouth shut for them. She gets in trouble once in a while which is good but most of the time... she just gets away with everything and I hate her so much for that. Tonya is one of the problems I have with this show. The other problems is how Chris is being hated so much at school just because Chris is black (to me, that's not funny... that is just being messed up to another race), Caruso beating up Chris, most of the episodes also have cruddy endings. Overall, I have a few problems with this show that can improve so much more but the humor in this show is absolutely excellent and makes me laugh very hard. 8/10
  • I'd watch this if I had nothing else to watch, or do.

    5.3
    As someone who loves Chris rock, this turned out to be one huge disappointment. It just wasn't funny. I watched around three episodes until I decided to stop. I wanted to give it a chance since I thought Chris Rock was one great comedian, but the whole time I was watching the show, I never burst into laughter like the way I do with Chris Rock's other shows/movies. I know it's supposed to be different because this shows Chris Rock's childhood, but I was expecting even just a little amount of humor, which I didn't get. It's sad how one amazing comedian didn't follow through with his own show.
  • ...And Chris hates everybody right back.

    1.0
    I knew the odds were againt this show being any good the minute I saw Rock's "all liberals are racists" rant in an interview. I guess if I don't laugh at the show, that makes me a racist or something? It can't just be boring? Gee, I would have thought that those people who paid to see your concerts and buy your comedy albums can't all be racist, but then again, so many people mistake obnoxiousness at high volume for humor these days, it's not hard to see why this sort of thing lingers on. Having a chip on your shoulder does not make you the discoverer of truth.

    There isn't a plot on this show you couldn't see marching five miles away. There isn't an episode that actually reflects the real variety of childhood, even in a tough town-- up, down and in between. Chris bleats about everything, everybody bleats back at him, roll credits. Bitter much?
  • Really miss this show.

    10
    Never missed an episode. Also liked the adult characters that were on sum of my other fav sitcoms from back in the day. Like Todd Bridges from Dif'erent Strokes, Jackee from 227 n Sister Sister, Tachina Arnold from Martin, this show was just a modern day classic. Wished that this show had 2 more seasons at least. Terry Crews as Julius Rock was my fav. Him n his cheapskate quotes: That's $2 worth of candy in the garbage. Glad this show is syndicated though, but wished that this show went onto Chris' upstart in stand-up n Hollywood. PS, couldn't stand that Tonya, straight up bratty.
  • The Black version of The Wonder Years!

    7.0
    OK, as we know we all loved the Wonder Years because of how much we could all relate to it growing up, even in modern day 2011 when the show took place in the 60s. So, I'm black, and I figured if they make the show black I could somehow relate to it even more than I did with white kids. Did I? Well no, but this was a pretty funny show and I did sort of relate to it.

    The show is half-based off Chris Rock's real life, and it shows his childhood in a different take. Chris is obviously a younger Chris Rock, based off himself growing up in the Brooklyn of the 1980s. His brother, Tony Rock, is brought to life in the character Drew. His father, Julius, is adapted into Julius, and he added an annoying little sister named Tanya for some reason, even though she never really existed. It's a comedic take on the childhood of Rock, who felt like the world was against him. It's funny to see how everything the character does backfires and leaves him in a sucky outcome. Chris is unpopular and nerdy, and he constantly tries to climb the social latter, but always fails and his efforts backfire, leaving him the butt of the joke. He always has good intentions, but the world just seems to be against him. Chris' pure heart and will to fit in, coupled with his outstandingly bad luck, make him a loveable loser that you can't help but care about. He's a black Charlie Brown, and you just want him to succeed but love when he doesn't.

    A hilarious aspect of the show I should point out is the dad, Julius. Julius is a hilarious interpretation of Rock's real father, making him a cheap, money grabbing tightwad who cares about his family but gets blinded by a paycheck. What makes him so funny is the outlandish lengths he goes through to save money, and the way he is able to instantly tell the price of something and how much money is being spent around him. He's so cartoonishly cheap and surrealistically money-hungry that I can't help but laugh when he steps onscreen.

    Now, obviously there's a little more than the Teen-boy-growing-up thing that connects this to the Wonder Years. For those who've seen the show, we all know where I'm going with this. Just like in The Wonder Years, Chris' endeavors and misadventures are narrated by an older version of the character reflecting on his childhood. Unlike the cynical, sarcastic 30-something Kevin recalling his younger days, we have the cynical comedian Chris Rock doing it to his younger self. It's essentially the same idea, told from the view of a black kid in the 80s instead of a white kid from the 60s, which is odd because I'm a black kid in the 2000s and I relate more to the white kid from the 60s....

    Anyway...
    Script- 9
    Acting-7
    Characters-7
    Originality-6

    Overall- 7...Not as riveting and real as The Wonder Years, but an interesting take on it and definitely worth a watch every now and again, at least in my arrogant opinion. D out
  • This is one show i can't get enough of

    9.0
    I hate that it cancelled, because they really could've come up with other good episodes, as well as the last one they did. It would have been nice if they revealed whether or not Chris passed the GED. I think Chris had the right idea to drop out of Highschool and go for it. What makes me laugh the most when it comes to this show is that if Chris wasn't having bad luck all the time, sometimes he was an accident waiting to happen, and his narrations were funny, especially with the way he'd describe certain situations in a litteral sense
  • Um, why would someone want to watch this?

    3.8
    First off, the name really annoys me. I can't believe I even watched it one night...I must have been really really really beyond really bored, if you catch my drift. Anyway, I didn't like it too much, cause it was like...boring. Semi, funny, that is why I gave it the 0.1

    Yep yep, I certainly will never ever ever watch it again...

    :D :D That's my opinion.
  • One word describes this show: Defeatism.

    1.0
    This is a show for Chris Rock to complain about how hard and unfair his childhood was and make a buck out of it.
    It's not funny, the father is the typical guy with kids and a crappy job (why do these people have kids if they don't have money????), the mother annoys me and the kid (Chris) just bends over and takes it when someone tries to take advantage of him.
    This is one of the few shows that actually pains me to watch. It's not funny, it doesn't make you think and the fact that it's being succesful kills my dream (no more sitcoms in the near future).
    I also don't like the tone about how life is hard and unfair and bla bla bla and all the stereotypes make it even worse.
  • I LOVE THIS SHOW...I CAN RELATE IN EVERY ASPECT. IT REMINDS ME OF MY MON, DAD AND SIBLINGS...KEEP IT COMING

    5.1
    However, the “snow day” episode on 2/5/07 was a little concerning. Everyone I know watches this show—I just hope after reading my comments you take a more careful effort in verifying some of you details, especially where the mom and her overwhelming role is concerned.

    It is a simple thing, but most moms know that “Syrup of Ipecac” is a serious extract. Specifically, Chris’s mom told her oldest son, while he was in the bathroom throwing up, to take the ipecac and “go to school.”

    The following information explains why her instructions were scary…Remember, there a lots of young mother that have entered the world of motherhood, without the benefit of an older family member to guide them. Please be careful…

    Normally Syrup of Ipecac should not be given at home if: The patient is less than one year old or Corrosives (lye, drain cleaners, oven cleaners, automatic dishwasher detergent, or other strong acids or bases) have been taken or burns are seen around or in the mouth or A petroleum distillate-containing product (kerosene, gasoline, paint thinner, furniture polish, etc.) has been taken or The patient is lethargic (sluggish), asleep, or commatose (unconscious) or The patient is convulsin.

    SIGNED...A GREAT MOM, LORETTA
  • Superb

    9.5
    This show is about Chris Rock as kid and his hardships in Brooklyn, New York. I thought I was going to hate this show at first, but I actually like it alot. I always try to tune into it on Nick at Nite from 9-10 on the week nights. The show is also genuinely funny as it tries for story first, then laughs second. I do believe the show dipped in the last season, and Chris' mom was often times really annoying with her attitude, but it ended strongly so it's forgivable. If you want a good family comedy everyone can relate to and enjoy, this is it. 9.5/10 A
  • Malcom In The Middle,huh?

    8.0
    The childhood of Chris Rock which is very bad is shown.This show is good,but not the best.Hate Chris Rock's annoucing in this episode.Too bad it ended like all of the good channels do and hire a lot of bad ones!!!Well,it's not that stupid or anything it said,but it kind of reminds me Malcom In The Middle.They always have to end with bad shows if they have to cancel all the good ones like what they did to CN.All I know is that the narrating is so annoying in this show and that doesn't really make Chris Rock's career very bad.Good show,but it's not the best show ever.It kind of ripped off Malcom In The Middle,but it's still a good show.
  • This shows has something that just works.

    8.5
    I am just cuckoo for Chris! This show is definately one of my favorite shows of all time. The thing about this show that makes it good is the plot. It has a very strong storyline that's almost never dull and always keeps the show moving quickly. The humor is amazing and is always different and not stale. The voicing is great; the characters' voices work so well. Some of the characters could be a little bit better with showing their personality like Drew though. But overall, this show is amazing. DO NOT get rid of this show anytime soon.
  • Great show about one of the best comedians ever.

    9.0
    This show is just great. It's got a great story to it, and it aslo has one of the greatest narrators of all time. I love the "what if" sequences. Obviously, it isn't exactly what happened to Chris Rock in his youth, but it's a pretty good look into that kind of life. The jokes are so funny and yeah... Chris Rock is one of my favorite comedians ever, and just the general presentation of this show rocks. The ending is always funny, and unpredictable. Terry Crews is awesome as well. The whole thing is just... Great. Too bad it's over.
  • cool show

    8.0
    this is a show that is almost base on actor and comedian chris rock and he is the Narrator in every episode and since most of everything is base on chris rock's life that means he was the only black kid in a white kid show and he live in bed sudy which is a real town and that he had a father that worked 2 jobs and knows the price of everything and when every episode ends a voice says everybody hates chris that is very funny and this is a good show to watch and we know about chris rock's life
  • Great show,but unfortunable wouldn't last forever...

    EveryBody Hates Chris was a great show,but it showed hthe Chris Rock's life.
    If the show didn't endend he would start creating situations,and the show was based in real days of his life,so it would lose the focous.
    Great show,but it's time to say "GoodBye Chris"

  • This show rocks my socks!

    9.4
    I saw Chris Rock on a few shows and I thought he was extremely funny. So I thought a show about him might be interesting. That's how he pulled me in. This show is so funny, you can't even tell it's about the years in the '80s. It's a great after school show for kids and it suits the teenagers' appetite. All I can say is this show ROCKS!!!!
  • Toothless, to say at least...

    5.0
    This show reminds me of those family - morality sitcoms from the 80s / early 90s. Of course - the optics are improved and the narration by Chris Rock is nice, but it definitively lacks the edge to entertain adults. I realize it is supposed to be told from the view of a child, and that's what it is: children book material. No wonder the PTC is promoting this show - any good show has been critisized by them in the past and present.
    All in all I have to say I am disappointed by the humor of this show and the simplicity of situations and storyline, I would have expected much better from Chris Rock.
  • quite lteratlly situation-comedy. chris is put in a sticky situation, it gets worse, we laugh. but trust me its a whole lot funnier than it sounds. its called execution. (not the killing definition)

    9.0
    Everybody hates this show! no, not really. we love it. And in a world were the sitcom is dying fast, this show is a revitalization. maybe not so much a trendsetter, hopefully, it will be the start of a new generation of sitcoms. remember those?
    but enough of my reminising, this show is a blast. who cant love the retro feel of it? & the way chris rock narrates it (from the future/present) bringing humor not only with his comments, & how he tells how things are 'now' relating 2 his story (like how his brother now gets girls). another thing that i love are the clips. whether its the 'example clips' (like of how his father is always so cheap) or the 'it could happen clips' (my best example: "Where's Chris" "oh, i knocked him till next weak. he'll be back on tuesday"
  • the life of Chris Rock as a kid

    10
    This is a very funny show. As the title says, we see all the misfortunes he encouters in his childhood. The show is also very original as Chris Rock narrates his own life which i have never seen before in any other show. It is also informative as we see how someone with a bad childhood became so famous
  • Havent watched alot of this show but I think it's pretty good.

    7.0
    I like Chris Rock but I think he thinks to much of himself like in this show. I do though like the actors in this show are great. I also think this show is really funny. Its pretty informitive to because like before this show I didnt know Chris Rock grew up in a poor neighborhood.
  • I like it.

    10
    I like Chris Rock, and this show. He is funny and talented and I think he dose a great job with this show. I like the show. It is very funny, and cool. I think the show should be on more often. I dont see it a lot any more. This show should keep on going for a long time, So more people could see it. Cause I want to see it more!!! This show is so cool, I love it, and give it a 10. Also, a spot on my favorite shows chart. Chris Rock is talented. Well, to me!
  • It turns out, it wasn't easy living in the poorest end of town, growing up with a father that works two jobs just to keep the clothing on back, and being black in the 1980's..Dont believe me? Ask ledgendary comedien Chris Rock, and he'll tell ya!

    "Everybody Hates Chris"is set in a small town in Brookland, in the early 1980's, and centres around a younger, 13-year-old Chris Rock, whose life is turned when he is uprooted from his comfortable home and school and sent to asociate with other children who enjoy taughting him about his skin color and family income.

    Chris' parents, over-excentric-shopper-holic, mother Rochelle Rock and money-consious Julius "That' 59 cents worth of oatmeal'" Rock, may be strick at times, but all together give the impression of wanting the best for their children.

    Drew and Tonya are chris'onscren brother and sister.
    Drew is obsessed with Karate and can perfect the skills of a black belt by just watching them on TV and movies. While Tonya has developed a growing intrest in gossip.

    All in all, this show has the grownds of becoming an instant classic.
