Storyline

KEVIN CAN WAIT stars Kevin James as a retired police officer who is setting out on a fresh career path as he rises to the challenge of being a newly single dad. His kids, Sara, Jack and Kendra, are grateful to him for making sure they're OK but decide it's time for him to get out of the house, so they turn to Vanessa (Leah Remini), his former police partner, for help. Vanessa has left the force to launch her own private security firm, and she makes Kevin an offer he can't refuse - to be her new business partner. Although the job isn't always glamorous and they rarely see eye to eye, Kevin and Vanessa share an undeniable bond from their years working together. Also, Kendra and her fiancé, Chale, face issues of their own, including becoming newlyweds and figuring out how they will support themselves. Once again, life has thrown Kevin some curveballs, so his dreams of an early retirement will just have to wait a little longer, and his family will always come first.

As others have said...
5 October 2016 | by aeasmmikeySee all my reviews

As others have said, I too was hoping for more of a sequel to King of Queens. I will watch a rerun of that whenever I see one -- and we all know you can catch one on at any minute of the day or night.

And you know -- this show is set up almost exactly like King of Queens; but this does not work.

The wife is wrong. Let's face it; we all want Carrie, not this too- pretty actress who says "Ah, honey" no matter what jackass thing Kevin does. She is just off.

Now, that whole subplot with the daughter does not work. That was lifted from the Brad Garrett sitcom 'til Death, or that short-lived Warburtin show, Crowded -- or a host of others. The only change is he's British.

The Greek chorus, including Danny, is back -- but they seem off as well.

I guess it was the writing and the whole dynamic that made KoQ a hit, and this a flop
