  1. The most original and brilliant show on television.
  2. "Everybody Hates Chris" is something more than the wise, tender, funny portrayal of the evolution of a gifted mind. It's actually something very rare on television, even rarer in the movies, and almost non-existent in contemporary fiction. It's the wise, tender, funny portrait of a poor kid.
  3. I can't think of another recent work of art, popular or serious, that's as caustic about race as this wild little cartoon.
  4. The haunting and sometimes mirthful tales that are the stock-and-trade of "This American Life" are not lost in imagery but heightened by it.
  5. "Addiction" does not make the viewer a voyeur, but rather a participant in the need for more and better solutions.
  6. The show moves swiftly and suspensefully.
