Let's skip the kiss, Kate.
29 February 2004 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Kate Salinger (Caroline Quentin) is a marriage and relationship counselor who seems to be able to solve everyone else's problems but not her own. Her flatmate, Douglas (series writer Chris Langham), works with Kate and is also in love with her. He makes it so obvious, we as the audience wonder how someone as intelligent as Kate could be so dense about it. Kate, on the other hand, is crazy about Douglas' brother, Ian, a doctor who changes girlfriends faster than he changes underwear. Kate seems oblivious to this as well. The only long-term couple on the show is Kate's secretary, Mel (Amanda Holden), and Craig, the downstairs computer geek (Darren Boyd). The series follows the ups and downs in Kate's life, and reveals her own imperfections and insecurities as she tries to help others with theirs.

"Kiss Me Kate" is a Britcom that features a quirky cast with chemistry and some hilarious situations, but at times Kate's condescending attitude and crass talk can be a turn-off. It's difficult to like her character; it's easier to feel sympathy for her and her friends. And the lovely, dark-haired Quentin proves that a woman doesn't have to be a size 4 to be talented and beautiful.
