Storyline

Following Kevin's attempted suicide, Amy, his widowed twin sister, a tenured aeronautical engineering professor who does contract work for the UN and the US military on the side, invites him to live at the family home in Taylor, Texas until he feels well enough to be on his own again, and has gotten his life back on track, he now an emotional mess of a person. The one person who does not welcome Kevin with open arms is Amy's teenaged daughter Reese, who has been struggling since her father John's death and who cannot forgive Kevin in his selfishness in not being there for Amy in her time of grief, Kevin too preoccupied with what was then his seemingly successful life. His life in Taylor may be all the more difficult in running into old friends, acquaintances and colleagues, such as his high school girlfriend, Kristin, who happens to be one of Reese's teachers. Shortly after Kevin's arrival in town, thirty-five meteor strikes occur within a twenty-four hour period around the world. ... Written by Huggo

It may seem old hat...
11 January 2018 | by julia-rossSee all my reviews

I'm writing this review after watching all the episodes which have aired so far (11). The first time I watched the show, I wasn't sure what to expect. It was a little silly, though a little unpredictable, but I liked it. The characters were likable, the people playing them were as well, so I tuned in the next week, and the next, and so on. I've never seen a show that just got better and better like this one, without some type of negative driving force (murder, someone's having an affair, someone is blackmailing someone else, etc.) This show just keeps getting better and better (and gooder and gooder). Ne'er a skeleton in the closet, nor a scandal in the budoir to be found. This is a show about normal family members and friends who love and support each other the best they can.

Don't get me wrong, I like several shows that I would classify as much darker. Mr. Robot comes to mind, Shameless, Ray Donovan. I'm no prude, and I don't consider myself religious, but I do have Faith. Kevin (Probably) Saves the World renews my faith in other people. If you're not watching it, you should be.
