Well...since someone asked. :-)
I thought the way he was carting around a dead friend was gross. I
didn't find it humorous nor did it make me fall into the trap of trying
to find some "deep"  meaning into the motives of Chris.  Speaking
of Chris I have grown sick of his character and I think he is over
used.  All I can if there were a radio DJ in our area that
was like Chris he would have a high degree of tune-out from me.
Perhaps in the start of the series what he had to say and do was a
good contrast but it is to single character focus.  I get the feeling
that the writers expect us to automaticly find some insightful deep
meaning into anything that comes out of his mouth.  Just like the
comic that expects us to laugh just cause he said chicken livers.
I have only seen one of Going To Extremes(?) but it looked like such
a clone of NE that right away I was saying "oh...this guy must be
like Joel...this one like...".  Even the actors look very much like
some of those on NE.
I guess when a network has a success theyn follow the follower.
