old christine(S01E06) This week Christine is on a mission to make her son's private school more racially diverse. She doesn't really know anything about civil rights issues but why should that stop her? So, she sponsored a black family to get into Richie's school.

I was happy to see that Christine brought her brother Matthew along on her dinner date with her "black family", as she calls them. Matthew's always good for a laugh, like when he touts Christine's voting record by saying that she voted more than 200 times in the American Idol finals last year. Obviously, Christine's token "black family" was going to turn out to be a nightmare and, sure enough, the dad lands two big, offensive remarks about homosexuals (the F word). So, she gets a gay couple to offset the "black family's" bigotry. Of course, the two men say they don't like all the Jews at their child's former school. So, instead of diversity, she has introduced hate to her son's school.

The side story about Richard trying to figure out Richie's homework was a kick. I love that he called the makers of the text book to argue the answer of one of the questions. Plus, it was nice to see Wanda Sykes again.

Favorite quote of the night came from Richard: "Just because you say you'd marry Chris Rock, that doesn't make you civil rights activist."

Not my favorite episode so far, but at least there weren't any fat jokes.

I have to agree with kimberly b. Monday night doesn't have much to offer for my wife and I, but this episode was GREAT!!! We have watched the show before and thought it was just alright. But tonight, out of no where, we became fans. I just hope the writers can keep it up.

I have to say, I laughed my ass off last night. This show is great! It is nice to see a show that talks about Blondes, Jews, Gays, and African Americans! Keep it up, it was light hearted and really good for my sides to laugh that much! You have a winning show. I find the cast fantastic and real life.
