Kyle’s Choice

kevinfromwork812smallTonight, ABC Family kicks off its new workplace comedy, Kevin From Work, with a double-dose of episodes. Kevin (Noah Reid, Backpackers) is about to leave his life in LA for a new job in Italy. He has been madly in love with his cube neighbor Audrey (Paige Spara) for the past 3 years and has never had the courage to tell her. So in a drunken haze, he decides that since he’ll never see her again, it’s the perfect opportunity to reveal his feelings. However, when his new job falls through, he must beg his horrible boss (Amy Sedaris, Strangers with Candy) for his old job back and now must deal with the fallout of his declaration. Rounding out the cast of characters are Kevin’s wild sister Roxie (Jordan Hinson, Eureka), his best friend Brian (Matt Murray, Rookie Blue), and Audrey’s roommate Patti (Punam Patel).

ABC Family has made the first episode available to watch online/On Demand. From the ads, I was expecting this series to be more wild and crazy. While it does have these moments, it also takes time to explore the characters a little more and builds to a rather heartfelt conclusion that makes me anxious to see tonight’s second episode. The first episode kind of had a bit of an A to Z-type vibe (minus the narration). Will the show become more of a broad comedy or go for a slower romcom feel, or will it find some happy medium? I’m looking forward to seeing how the rest of the season plays out.

Step into Kevin’s world tonight on ABC Family at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Big Brother, MasterChef, The Jim Gaffigan Show, Impastor, Flipping Out, Suits, Mr. Robot, and Twinning.
