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 »
Even Stevens is one of my top 10 shows of all time. The characters are great. A lot of people don't like Beans, but I think he can be hilarious. The supporting cast is excellent, but the show belongs to Shia. He's a superb actor (everyone on the show is, in my opinion). The writing is witty, clever, and original, and some episodes literally have me laughing for over half an hour (and most shows are unable to elicit more than a chuckle from me). It's too bad there's a 65-episode limit, 'cause I'd definitely like to see some new episodes (although most of 'em I haven't seen). Anyway, if you have Disney Channel, give it a try. You'll probably enjoy it.
