For adults only!

This could have been a very cute show that kids could have also enjoyed but literally every show made these days has to add overt and blatant s**ual content/visuals/scenes/language. I enjoyed it as an adult, but the rating show not be set for teens. 21+!

Common sence media is all wrong

Saw c m s review of this show and I thought that it might have been true so I didn't watch at first but then I finally did and must say I thought the show was pretty cute not a laugh out loud funny or exceptional great show but cute and sweet with funny moments I say give Kevin a try not too shabby

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (1 ):

The setup is inoffensive enough, and unrequited love is a comedy staple, but this comedy loses points by making its secondary characters the butt of mean jokes and inviting the audience to laugh. It's funny that Audrey's roommate is attracted to Kevin, see, both because she has a larger body type and is a woman of color. Such a woman could NEVER be the romantic lead, right? So it's funny! Let's all laugh as she demands 100-calorie brownie-bites packages post-sex and sighs "I think I love him!" after Kevin has exited her apartment so quickly that he's still in his boxer shorts. Kevin's sister? She's sexually voracious! It's hilarious that she tells her brother to hang on while they're on the phone because she wishes to flash her breasts to a fellow driver -- hey, tell the kids to cover their eyes!

Ugh. The viewer is invited to mock all these sitcom stereotypes. The chunky coworker. The sexually voracious boss. The lunkhead gymbot best friend. Ugh, ugh, and more ugh. At the same time, leads Kevin and Audrey are presented as relatable and loveable, even though they're about as bland as two sitcom leads could ever hope to be and generate about as much fizz as a flat soda. This rancid comedy has the look and feel of something funny, without the laughs.
