Spoiler:
Hopefully, the bully will get dealt with harshly so they can move on from this storyline for a while. I understand that that is a part of the way of life for many kids, but they need to either tone down the bully storyline or get themselves a new bully.

BTW, the title and spoiler info are incorrect per my DVR and UPN.com.

The correct title appears to be "Everybody Hates Basketball", and the correct synopsis is
Spoiler:
Chris joins his school's basketball team, despite the fact that he can't play, and a failed pop quiz might keep him off the court.

Chris: But I got everyone wrong

Teach: You're on the basketball team, so you passed!

Coach: This is you with the ball. This is everyone else getting out of your way.

I wouldn't call this the best show on the air but it's funny and entertaining, and that's all I need. That's why my DVR grabs this and not Joey anymore.

This show feels like it should be a lot funnier than it is.

The scenes with the dad continue to be the best parts of the show.

Maybe I should start paying more attention. I watched it while reading on here, and I didn't laugh once.

I feel like that too, Mr.X and I'm not sure why. I think it's a good show, but I feel that it's a good sitcom that is ironically not THAT funny. I enjoy the show, but considering the great concept, I'm not laughing as much as I'd expect.

They definitely have a few good jokes, but I'm wondering...is it not as funny as it should be because the jokes they have induce chuckles rather that gut busting laughs, or is there not enough jokes implemented into the episodes or is it something else? I'm really not sure what it is, because I like the premise and like the show, but I still end up feeling like it should be better than it is.

Finally saw the episode and I didn't think it was as funny as the previous ones. Good to see Clarence Williams III but I agree; this show shoudl be funnier than it is.

Just watched this. I laughed during the part where Chris said he tried every sport, and he kept getting different sports balls thrown against his head.

I fixed the episode name in the thread title.

Reminds me of today's NBA.

With all the love that this and My Name is Earl got from critics, I couldn't believe that I was watching the same shows as the critics saw. The latest Earl episode was terrific, but this series really hasn't been at all funny so far, IMO.
