#KevinCanWait S1 Ep. 1 "Pilot" Series Premiere Recap and Review
The King of Comedy is back! Well, that's what I've been hearing all summer and they're right. Kevin James returns to CBS in another sitcom Kevin Can Wait and it's one of those classic simple funny family sitcoms.
Kevin Gable is about to have his retirement party as a police officer. Things look really good for him as he has plans with his other retired officer buddies to do fun guy stuff like combine paintball and go carts, calling one of the idea "Go Balls."
Before the retirement party comes, Kevin's daughter, Kendra, comes for the special occasion from college, bring home burgers and fires for the family. But it's Kevin James and food, burgers and fries for a family of four is the equal amount for Kevin to eat for an original person.
But when she tells her mom, Donna, about the boyfriend, they planed to introduce him to Kevin after Sunday church, but plans change when her friend and boyfriend comes. Kevin mistaken one guy to be her boyfriend, but she takes both Kevin and Donna in the kitchen and tells her about her boyfriend and who it is. It may be a shock to Kevin but it'll be more of a shock to both of her parents when she tells them that her and Chale are engaged and that she's quitting college to support his App designing.
Upsetting Kevin, him and Donna talk it out and decide to have them live in their house. Kevin talks to Kendra about it and tells her that he would love to have them live back home and have her still go to school. The awkward part for him was to tell Chale about it.
Even though this might set back his retirement, Kevin now looks for a part time job play for the stuff that he has ordered. But that didn't stop his "Go Balls" with his buddies.
I enjoyed this show. I know that people would think that it's predictable. The plot is old and not original bah bah bah! But it's one of those classic family sitcoms that I'm use to from the 90's and early 00's. This is the kind of show that not only me but my grandmother and family would watch. I love something that is simple enough to seat down and turn on something that can make me or my family laugh in the best possible way instead of having to think about the joke. Kevin James is funny and so are some of the characters like his wife Donna, played by Erinn Hayes.
You can catch Kevin Can Wait Mondays at 8:30/7:30c on CBS.
