Everybody Hates Chris (TV is good)

When I heard Chris Rock wasn't actually in the show I wasn't sure if it was going to be good. I tivoed the first episode on my super home media thing and it was excellent. Chris actually is the narrator. The show is about him when he was thirteen. The cast are all brilliant and the writing has a Chris Rock edge to it that elevates the show above the majority of TV drivel. And there's no laugh track so it feels more like a Freaks and Geeks style of show than a typical American sitcom. Recommended viewing. Sunday night on Channel Ten.
