Titus

The BEST episodes of Titus

Every episode of Titus ever, ranked from best to worst by thousands of votes from fans of the show. The best episodes of Titus!

This half-hour comedy chronicles the hilarious world of Christopher Titus and his totally messed-up poor white trash family. Between his drunken father, his dimwitted brother, and his goody-goody best friend, it's amazing Titus is alive, let alone engaged to a "normal" girl. Titus adapted Christopher Titus' stand-up routine in a novel way: each episode is narrated by Titus from a black & white "Neutral Space," from which he comments on the events as they unfold, punctuated by short, surreal flashbacks to his childhood and adolescence. The hilarious interplay between these three levels of narrative is sometimes amazingly complex and even contradictory, highlighting the exceedingly black nature of the show's humor.

Dave and Titus panic when they realize their dad, Ken, hasn't come out of the bedroom in four days, not even to get a beer. They dare each other to go into the bedroom and make sure...but neither one wants to discover the body. Soon Erin arrives--just a little peeved that she took the message "Dad's dead" to mean her own dad. As a result, she rushed to her parents' house, only to catch them having sex! Erin's stunned to hear that Ken's dead, but she's also too chicken to actually investigate. Meanwhile, Titus and Dave reflect on their old man's parenting skills, or lack thereof. Ken never missed a beer or a babe, but he also never missed a little league game or a school function. Erin remembers that Ken recently gave her his will. Could it have been a planned suicide? Terminal illness? They obsess over the possibilities until Tommy arrives. He's visibly shaken and equipped with comfort food. The foursome eat their cake and reminisce. Titus and Dave even role-play, poking fun at Ken's gruff nature. They all have a big laugh until Ken strolls out in his bathroom, pops open a beer and tells them all to keep it down--he's trying to sleep.

Some people share a family talent, like cooking or singing. The Titus family talent is heart attacks. Ken has had three, so when he has another one and crashes his car, no one is too shocked. The shock comes later, when Tommy tells Christopher that his dad blames him. Long story short: Ken couldn't start his boat because Chris and Dave took the distributor cap; Ken got upset; hence the heart attack. Christopher refuses to take the blame and confronts his dad about the excessive alcohol and cigarette use that perhaps had more to do with his bad ticker. Suddenly, Ken's monitor flatlines! But Ken is fine: it was the guy in the other bed who died. Titus feels horrible and offers to give his dad his cherry '56 Chevy to make up for the car accident. Later, while talking to an officer about the accident, the cop offers photos taken when Ken ran the red light — photos that clearly show him engaged in a sex act with a woman in the front seat! Titus, Dave and Erin enact their revenge by ordering

Titus explains that screwed-up people need translators to communicate with the ""normal"" people, because expressions of dysfunctional love come in odd forms. Case in point: Ken has Dave thrown in jail for grand theft because he took the VCR. Ken didn't know Dave was moving out until all of his son's stuff was gone. So, Titus explains, by having Dave arrested, Ken was just saying how empty the house would feel without him. At the police station, Ken discovers that it was Titus who told Dave to secretly move. Titus is proud of his achievement and admits to packing up the truck with Dave's stuff--and Ken's VCR. As an expression of pride in his eldest son, Ken has Titus arrested as an accomplice! Finally, Erin arrives and gets Ken to drop all charges. Then she realizes that with Dave out of the house, Ken will have more time to spend with her and Titus. Titus tries to snowball Dave with a story about how their dad is dying and needs company. Not until Titus promises Dave a new DVD player a

Connie Stevens becomes the third actress (after Christine Estabrook and Frances Fisher) to play the role of Titus's mother, Juanita, who was last seen having just fatally shot her abusive husband at Titus and Erin's ill-fated wedding. Now Juanita is on trial for murder, and ex-husband Ken can't wait to testify and put her away for good. Not so Titus. She is, after all, his mom, and when Titus takes the stand—following some well-intentioned but highly incriminating remarks by Erin, Dave and Tommy—he emphasizes the positive things he's learned from her. What later transpires during the course of the trial, however, can in no way be construed as positive.
