Kenan And Kel: The long dusty road to comedy
28 April 2005 | by sheenultralordSee all my reviews

I believe that the 4 seasons did Nick a lot of good. I will never forget the movie "Two Heads Are Better Than None". It was single handedly the best made for TV movie - ever! I grew up with Kenan and Kel, both on "Kenan and Kel" and on "All That", which I might say has all but gone down the drain (the reason why I say this is because Josh and Lori Beth are now writers for the tenth season of All That - or so rumor has it.) Back to my comment, Kenan and Kel shaped the picture of comedy that we all get when we think of Nick or even kid's shows in general. In a word, Kenan and Kel are...what am I saying! There isn't a word or more than one for that reason that can describe the show. The closest I can come to is Wicked-Awesome.

Come back to us Kenan and Kel!
