      Everybody Hates Chris as narrated by Chris Rock. Taking a bunch of unknowns and extras and creating a situation comedy that focuses on the narration of a successful comedian was a risk, but it seems to work.

      This comedy series is as close to the Bill Cosby family show that I remember.

      Though it is a show about a black comedian, Chris Rock, growing up


      in the 70’s and his take on these experiences, it is not necessarily about a black family.

      Being white, I am not sure how it is accepted by black folks because it does not hype black power but rather shows that people are just that - people.

      It focuses on a likeable black kid that is sent to an all white grammar school by his parents so ...


      • that he will get a better education.

        That’s it pure and simple.

        The family is nice and there are no hidden racial statements forced onto the audience.

        The cast is excellent.

        The parents are so real and the faces that they make in reaction to the things their children do are hilarious.

        His best friend at school is an awkwardly timid Italian boy and together

        they form a strong bond of brotherhood.

        One technique that is very effective is the over exaggeration visions that young Chris has in expectation of the responses to be expected from his parents.

        The commentaries made by Chris during the show are not usually funny, but not offensive either.

        I would not classify this series as a comedy but rather a nice recollection that you might have of your childhood.
