Not as hilarious.....but still.........

"This 2nd season is not as hilarious as the 1st, but it still has it's moments, the show has also grown with recurring roles from Whoopi Goldberg, Jackee Harry, Todd bridges, Ernest(Raj)Thomas, Loretta Devine, Antonio Fargas and more. Not that much editing has been done, even some of the original music has been left in. Some standout episodes are "Everybody hates Thanksgiving" "Everybody hates skipping school", "Everybody hates DJs" In overall, this is still some of the best writing a sitcom has seen in quite some time, if you enjoyed the 1st season, you'll enjoy the 2nd seaon as well."

"I just purchased season 2 of "Everybody Hates Chris", and immediately upon returning home from the store, noticed these dreaded words on the back of the box.."SOME EPISODES MAY BE EDITED FROM THEIR ORIGINAL NETWORK VERSIONS." Not having seen these episodes during their network run, I have no way of knowing what, if any, scenes have been edited? And before I dare open the set, i'm hoping someone who did see them on TV before the DVD release can give a proper review and list any and all changes that were made? If there have been scenes edited out, i'd like to ask CBS DVD one question? WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY?????????????? It's bad enough that old time favorites like Happy Days and WKRP In Cincinnati, etc, are being released to DVD in severely edited versions because of corporate laziness and the greedy practices of the music industry? (hmmmm too bad we can't sue them the way they're suing us these days lol) But why in the world would there be a problem showing the complete, unedited versions on DVD of shows that were in their original network run only a year ago? Surely the silly copyright problems preventing older shows from being released uncut have been settled for the newer shows? Or should we just accept the fact that the loyal fans of these great shows will forever be screwed by corporations that will never give a damn about anything but our money?"
Chris Rock "Lite"

"I love Chris Rock - his HBO appearances are classic. However, "Everyone Likes Chris" is more than a little watered down from the expectations set by Rock's other appearances. On the other hand, I should also note that his stories about growing up in Brooklyn and dealing with bullies, negative influences, well-intentioned and decent parents, somewhat manipulative siblings, and the usual issues at school are wholesome, lack any serious racial bent, and are at least mildly amusing."
Chis Rock rocks!

"I love this series. It's especially fun to watch it with my son and teach him about Black social issues and history through it. He's laughing and enjoying the storyline and not realizing how much he's learning! The creative staff on this series have done a fabulous job keeping the story archs interesting and the characters exaggerated but fun. This comedy is not politically correct, yet it's not offensive. Kudos to the show for walking that line well."
