User Reviews

This review aims to discuss some aspects on Everybody Hates Basketball (EP 03 S 01)
16 December 2014 | by fpsherculanoSee all my reviews

The TV series can be defined in one word, amazing. In Everybody Hates Chris, in general, we observe the evolution of the cast, because at the beginning it was an inexperienced young cast and as the time goes by, we see nothing but a mingled and experienced cast.

In episode 3 of season 1, we can see these differences if we compare this episode with another 4 and season. In this last episode (Everybody Hates Basketball),Chris Rock played by (Tyler James Williams) enters another confusion, this time he is scheduled to play on the basketball team of your school, however no one knows that it does not take a knack for games.Ending literally humiliated at the end of the match, as all trusted him to win the game.

In his house since his mother Rochelle Rock (Tichina Arnold) not working, she and her husband Julius Rock (Terry Crews) decide to rent the upstairs room of his apartment. Julius Rock greedy for money decides to rent the room for a very mysterious tenant who paid four months rent in advance.

Perhaps one of the series of the director of the defects has been focusing too much on prejudice suffered by the boy Chris on the show because he suffers at school every day, but their parents just want him to have the same education that the boys "white"

This would be can be considered yet the masterpiece of the author because it is known worldwide, it is very difficult to find someone who has never heard of the great phenomenon that is "Everybody Hates Chris"
