This week, KENAN, was all over the place with teacher strikes and parent’s loss of “me time.” It certainly did not show teachers as they deserve to be seen, especially after a year of on-line school due to the pandemic.

It felt like everyone was trying way too hard. The children were out of control, not cute or funny. It was discordant.

I usually enjoy Kenan Thompson’s take on life. His facial expression and tone makes me smile. I look forward to his warmth and humor as he tackles the grieving process while raising two girls on his own. This episode failed miserably. It was a frantic mess.

KENAN is available to stream on NBC PEACOCK.
