Even Stevens falls in a group of beloved Disney Channel shows during the early 2000s. The series consistently brought chaos through Louis' scams and highlighted the problems between brothers and sisters through Louis and Ren. During its best moments, the show allowed its characters to set aside their issues and work things out together.
However, not every episode of the series achieves that. Some of their worst events embody the character's worst traits. While they are young and people make mistakes, some episodes make a point to address that and integrate it into the story. Other times, they may try, but it falls flat or does not add that much. These are the top ten worst episodes, according to IMDb.
