KEVIN CAN F**K HIMSELF is television at its finest. It presents the light and the dark side to every situation. Each episode shared what we are all thinking and processing at any given moment. Nothing is “on the same page.”

The writers of this production should stand up and take a bow. The acting is phenomenal, especially between the two leading ladies, Annie Murphy (Allison) and Mary Hollis Inboden (Patty.) Their scenes together take the viewers on a roller coaster ride of sheer brilliance. Raw emotions are spewed and examined. We even breathe a sigh of relief when the dialogue ends. Rarely do we witness such honesty, truth, and power between two women actors.

By the end of this program, I hated Kevin and his cohorts. I wanted a better life for Allison. I wished for a do-over. But our journeys do not often lead us down the best paths. This is why the happy, canned laughter scenes worked so well against the dark comedy instances. Kudos to the editing department for such seamless transitions.

KEVIN CAN F**K HIMSELF ended with a cliffhanger. It was a doozy! I look forward to another season when it returns.

It is available to stream on AMC Television.
