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.
