If you know me, I’m not a big fan of TV series as I’m never patient enough to sit down and watch all the episodes. And there may be a lot of them. And I hate routines and affections. But there are exceptions for everything in our miraculous life. And today I  am opening the “series” theme with a double trouble – Kenan & Kel.

kenan & kel

Kenan & Kel is a Nickelodeon comedy sitcom about two Chicago teenagers in the 1990s. Kenan Rockmore (works at a groceries store; thinks up brilliant schemes; exceptionally lazy; played by Kenan Thompson) and Kel Kimble (always clumsy and hungry; obsessed with orange soda; destructive sense of justice; played by Kel Mitchell) are best friends and a classic comedy duo. Kel always gets them into trouble, then Kenan tries to make it all okay with another “genius” plan (which is almost working), and Kel’s spoiling it once and for all. The reason I love these two is simple: both Kenan & Kel are HILARIOUS. So are the other characters of the show: Kenan’s huge bald dad Roger who always suffers the most due to ingenuous Kel and his sober-minded wife Sheryl; Kenan’s younger sister Kyra who has a major crush on Kel and of course Kenan’s boss Chris – a charming paranoiac and pedant who has constant nightmares of being chased by a giant rabbit and an irrational phobia of sandwiches.

Kenan & Kel is another reminder of the importance of having that friend by your side who is always ready to get into troubles and go through the craziest shit with you.
