5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Better CBC Shows of the 1970s Dec 6 2007
This is one of my favroite CBC televison shows of the 1970s.I was surprised to see that it made it to DVD.I enjoyed the DVD Season 1 of
the "King of Kensington".The bonus items of the DVD were good to watch and
look somewhat dated though but,it made the DVD of Season 1 more enjoyable.I'm looking forward to get more seasons of the "King of Kensington" when they come out.I brings back memories of seeing the show
during its first run from 1975 to 1980 on CBC.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great memories March 18 2013

Arrived in great time. Great memories, but since it's 1975 series, picture quality is a little less than we are used to. Would like to see subsequent King of Kensington seasons released.

4.0 out of 5 stars 1970s Comfort Food Sept. 28 2012
By Taser Me TOP 500 REVIEWER

Because of a great price and a taste for '70s nostalgia, I recently purchased and have just finished viewing the first season of "King of Kensington." Having watched the series when it first aired, I knew what to expect from the show, so there were no surprises. It is an entertaining show, but it is far from a great comedy. Much of the humour is tied to what was happening in Canada at that time, so lots of jokes about politics, inflation, and postal strikes.

I would recommend it to anybody who is a fan of the show or of any of the actors in the show or who is looking to stroll back to the mid '70s. It is also great fun to spot the guests in the different episodes who would eventually become big names in the entertainment field. I challenge viewers to identify the smart-mouthed kid who sells King and his family bogus lottery tickets.
