"OMG I LOOOOVE EVERYBODY HATES CHRIS SOOOOO MUCH!. I was a avid viewer during the 1st season in 2005, and i would watch it every week, so you can imagine how i feel knowing that the show recently underwent cancellation. I actually sheaded a tear over this simply because of the show itself being one of, if not, THE BEST SHOW ON T.V. To take something so PERFECT off of Television fills me with anger and frustration! So, let me put my emotions aside for a bit to explain the greatest show that ever hit the airwaves! The show revolves around the everyday life of Chris, who is a 12-year-old seventh grade student in the series' first episode. Chris is one of the few ''normal'' characters on the show, surrounded by a collection of crazy characters that, in his point of view, act as if they dislike him. Chris lives in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, a low-income community and attends an all-white school, where students and teachers alike pick on him. If things go well for Chris throughout an episode, half of the time they will backfire on him by the end. If a situation isn't going Chris' way, it always manages to get even worse for him, whether or not he tries to change the course of events. Chris Rock (a true genius and one of my all-time fav Comedians) narrates the show and takes us through the up's and downs of his years living in Bed-Stuy Brooklyn during the early-mid 1980's. Tyler James Williams (who plays young Chris Rock) never fails to make you LOL with his everyday issues. Chris has wit and charm! You find yourself caring about his character and wanting him to see things through with a happy ending. Chris Rock's narration alooone makes you crack up laughing and the Actors hit you with just the same! Julius (Terry Crews) is the perfect example of a good Father! He holds down his household and always shows love and affection. This man adooores his family! Rochelle (Tichina Arnold) in my eyes is truly a legend at her craft. She is one of my all time fav Actresses. To me, Tichina Arnold is (hands down) the Lucille Ball of the 21st century. This beautiful, smart, intelligent actress has been making me laugh my a** off eversince her days on the 90's T.V. show ''Martin'' and she's back and BETTER THAN EVER! She will without a doubt make your intire face ache and your cheeks tense up with laughter! Drew (Tequan Richmond) and Tanya (Imani Hakim) are so adorable. They always argue BUT they also like working together especially when it comes to getting what they want from the parents. Chris's best friend Greg (Vincent Martella) will even make you laugh as he shows that he can stand beside the other Actors in the show. One thing that stands out in the show is the array of 80's music that you will hear in the begining of almost every episode. Everything from Run DMC, Janet Jackson, Lisa Lisa and The Cult Jam, Howard Jones, Culture Club, Madonna, Duran Duran..the list goes on. Also incorporated are ALOT of seasoned vet actors whom all play permanent roles throughout various episodes. Actors like Jackee Harry, Wayne Brady, Whoppi Goldberg, Antonio Fargas, Tisha Cambell, Ernest Thomas, Robin Givens, Mike Estime..also, some new faces who all bring life to their characters! Here are some of the DVD perks of the series. 1st, The DVD has tons of options. Commentary on certain episodes, Webisodes on almost every episode, and deleted scenes, which are so funny that you wonder why they weren't left in the original show. I love everything about these amaaazing DVD's! It's very hard for me to even sit and watch the last season on DVD because while watching it you just know that it's the end, it's final! It hurts because let's face it, there are not alot of African American T.V. shows out there nowadays that seem to make it past atleast 4 or 5 seasons and that's due to ''so called fans'' tuning in and then tuning out which brings ratings down terribly. It saddens me only because i feel that we the viewers should make it our duty to KEEP our shows on the air and support them, this way they will be able to see the 10 yr mark of being on the air! We all need to simply work together to make this happen. Otherwise, this will continue to be a ongoing problem w/ our genuine African American shows and they will all continue to be plagued w/ the 4 to 5 yr T.V. run. So this is my plea...PPL PLZ let's make this happen. All who (like me) love and enjoy outstanding African American comedy such as Everybody Hates Chris, Tyler Perry's House Of Payne, The Game ect..let's make this happen and let's all see our African American Actors and Actresses succeed. As i said before, i watch every episode of Everybody Hates Chris, i even plan out certain days of the week to allow myself to be able to indulge in a EHC DVD marathon, but when that last DVD rolls around, as i sit and watch it, i start to get a feeling of sadness, vacancy, feelings i can't explain. The greatest show EVER is now off the air and won't return anytime soon. I had hopes that BET would pick it up, but i don't know of any new news stating that this will happen. In a post i came across a few days after hearing about the cancellation, it had said that Chris Rock announced that the end of season 4 matched up with his own past -- dropping out of high school to become a comedian -- and that it was time to end the show. So my only point is this...ppl, we need to change this ''cancellation'' cycle of our T.V. shows and start supporting and watching them! These DVD's are a must buy!"

"The coolest show ever! This sitcom set in Brooklyn in the eighties will have the whole family laughing. Narrated by Chris Rock and inspired by his own childhood, Chris, played by Tyler James Williams spotlights the catastrophes, misfortunes and triumphs of growing up. Constantly at cross purposes with his loving but dysfunctional family, Chris finds that being a kid isn't easy. Every character in the show is wonderfully authentic and original and each problem Chris encounters is one that kids today will relate to. Chris Rocks' hilarious narration delivers bursts of precisely executed humor into each exceptional episode. Enjoy!
Too bad new episodes are not on TV.

"I did not watch this series during its run as a TV series. It is so funny. Chris Rock's narration really adds to it. An advantage of having the complete set is being to watch it whenever I want. My whole family loves the show."
