Louis Stevens is a maladroit freshman who worships Jay Leno; his older sister is a dean's-list junkie who plots out the day's coursework with her monogrammed Palm Pilot. Gross-out humor ensues when the siblings scheme against each other to get the upper hand at school and at home. Written by
In the original pilot, Louis also has posters of The Waterboy (1998), Flubber (1997), and for his own movie, "Three Eyes Wide Shut". Also on his wall is a picture of Alfred E. Neuman, MAD magazine's freckle-faced poster boy, and a copy of the famous painting of Kramer from Seinfeld (1989). See more »
In the first episode, whenever a character says the name "Stevens", the audio doesn't match up with the visual because the original name was Spivey. See more »
Let's face it the Disney Channel has never been a place for high quality TV that enlightens as well as entertains, the exception being "Avonlea". Still, the show "Even Stevens" is one of the best shows on the network. The family dynamics really make the show work. Whether, it's the antagonistic relationship of Ren and Louis or the nurturing one between Eileen and Ren. However, when the show shifts to the school things become a lot less realistic and harder to swallow. No principal would play favorites with his/her students! No cafeteria serves food that completely gross, and I'm only 19 so I do remember what cafeteria food looks like. Still, the home life makes the school life easier to take. The actors are wonderful and I wouldn't be surprised to see Shia LaBoeuf in the movies, actual movies not the Disney Channel ones, and becoming very famous.
