Great show!
3 July 2002 | by See all my reviews

I first started watching Kenan and Kel last year or the year before, but ever since then it has got me hooked! Kenan, who always comes up with schemes to get them rich or in some way benefit them and Kel, who is so stupid that somehow manages to wreck every plan they get themselves into.

Both Thompson and Mitchell are very talented actors, and Kel's 'stupid role' always brings in the laughs. I do think though that they should have made a few more episodes, as I have seen most of them and the ones put on air are usually re-runs. But, the repeats are still funny, if they do get a bit same old at times.

Overall, a fantastic and very amusing comedy. I would rate it about 8.5 out of 10.
