Why you need to see ”Everybody Hates Chris”

What It’s About A semi-autobiographical look back at the early-1980s Brooklyn boyhood of comedian Chris Rock, told through the eyes of his 13-year-old alter-ego (Tyler James Williams, pictured)

Why It’s Worthy If the stale-melba-toast flavor of most network sitcoms leaves you starving for laughs, Everybody Hates Chris‘ distinctively sweet sense of time, place, and character, seasoned with Rock’s spicy narration, provides a veritable feast.

Scene Stealer Terry Crews (White Chicks) as Chris’ maniacally frugal father
