Storyline

Once a successful and selfish Wall Streeter, Kevin Finn is on a downward spiral as he realizes he hates his life, which led to him trying to commit suicide. To regroup, Kevin heads back to his hometown of Taylor, Texas to live with his straight-laced, recently widowed, aeronautical engineer twin sister Amy Cabrera and her teenaged daughter Reese Cabrera, the latter who is not happy to see her uncle as he did not support them in their time of grief. Shortly after his arrival in Taylor, Kevin discovers from his protector Yvette who no one else can see that he is the only surviving of the thirty-six righteous souls of his generation, something he cannot tell anyone. His God appointed mission under Yvette's protection is to find then anoint the replacement thirty-five, which he is to do by helping others, those specific tasks which he has to listen to the universe which will direct him. The successful completion of each task will result in a vision leading to finding the thirty-five. ... Written by Huggo

Our screens have been once again blessed by the brilliance of Jason Ritter in this fresh, new show
1 November 2017 | by tigergirl-34925See all my reviews

Five weeks ago I would have said that modern television was lacking a fresh, genuine comedy. Then, Kevin (Probably) Saves the World rocked our world like a meteor. This exciting new show by ABC starring Jason Ritter offers everything that one would be looking for in a show. A riveting cast with beautiful sincerity and believability, a simple yet complex script accompanied with flawless directing and a modern take on "It's A Wonderful Life" with enough twists and turns to keep you on your toes and aching for more at the end of each episode.

Kevin (Probably) Saves the World is the break I have been hoping and praying for for Jason Ritter since I first watched him in Parenthood. With each piece of art I have had the pleasure of watching him in, I have walked away wanting more. I have constantly wanted more for the brilliant actor and even more pleasurable person. Finally, my wishes have been granted. Now, I can sit and smile while I watch Jason craft the beautiful character of Kevin. As an audience you are immediately drawn to Kevin - wanting to know more about his past while eagerly watching him manoeuvre the crazy adventures being thrown his way. As we watch his relationships grow with his family, friends and most importantly, himself you find yourself filled with empathy and appreciation for this unique journey being displayed in front of us.

If I am honest, I came for Jason Ritter. However, I stayed for Jason Ritter and JoAnna Garcia Swisher, Kimberly Hebert Gregory, Chloe East, India de Beaufort, Dustin Ybarra and J August Richards. For whatever reason you want, I highly recommend you give this show a chance. Let Kevin save your world.
