I wanted to laugh; I just couldn't.

Turns out she already saw every single episode, thought it was great, and then told me that it got canceled.
RunawayRenee
All the characters have great chemistry and the one-liners are shocking, outrageous, and crazy funny!

It's March 2013 and I just discovered 'Ben & Kate.' I love it so much that I recommended it to my Mom. Turns out she already saw every single episode, thought it was great, and then told me that it got canceled. I now have just 1 episode left and the season is over. Bummer!

I love that there's no laugh track--a laugh track would ruin everything! Everything that's funny is doubly funny because to us this stuff is so bizarre and wacky and out of left field, but for them it's just run of the mill everyday life. The way the actors deliver their lines--everything so natural, subtle, matter-of-fact--there's great chemistry all around, they all play off each other so well, the writing is awesome and the actors are perfect.

I glanced at a netive/critical review of the show and saw that someone called it contrived and boring, but those are really the last 2 words I would ever use to describe this show. Not at all contrived. Fresh, funny, struggling middle class people just getting through life and appreciating what's most important--love and family. And of course always, always having a great sense of humor.

Ben & Kate makes me laugh out loud, so for that I recommend it across the board. I know I already said great casting and actors--just want to highlight that I'm not much of a "kid" person, but the little girl who plays Maddie is just all-out adorable. So serious, so smart, and just the cutest little ginger kid ever!

So, yeah. Only 1 season, but you'll be glad you watched.

Very funny show and I'm so sorry it was cancelled prematurely before people really got acquainted with it! The show only got better and funnier as it went along. Nat Faxon is one of the most hilarious actors around, and totally underrated. His timing is impeccable and the way he interacts with children on the show is one of the funniest things you'll ever see. BRING IT BACK!!

We must not have been watching the same show then. Totally heart-warming and stupid funny. I could not stop laughing. This guy is truly gifted. Another Steve Carrell in my opinion. He's a little bit Chaplin, Stiller, Carrell and Keaton, all rolled into one. (must be crowded)
Dakota Johnson is a breath of fresh air and Maggie Elizabeth Jones (think, 'We Bought a Zoo) is simply cute and very good. Another Fanning sister, with red hair and curls. And another last name. Details, details.
Seriously, I truly hope this gets picked up because I will totally watch this.

Ben and Kate was one of the sweetest, funniest, and over-all spectacular ensembles, that I've experienced on a tv comedy for quite sometime. With the lead of, Nat Faxon, each episode was hysterical! It's a shame that it was cancelled and only had one season. FOX could have done a better job promoting the show.

I loved this show SO much! It's was great from beginning to end. I am very upset that they cancelled it because the whole season kept me laughing. This show is like no other, and I wish they continued.

This was such an awkwardly fun family comedy that I'm SO sad it was cancelled. I hope that the rest of the season is soon released on DVD so we'll at least be able to see them!
