A great laugh
17 December 2003 | by (Vienna, Austria) – See all my reviews

"Kath and Kim" has had a sensational impact on Australian television. The most watched homegrown comedy in years, it is also undoubtedly the best. The characters are brilliantly written, leaving space for hilarious situations that really send up life in the Australian suburbs. Ironically, Kath and Kim have become the most toasted products of the environment they parody.

Kath (Jane Turner) is a house-proud, high maintenance middle-aged woman, with a new lease of life thanks to her new beau, Kel (Glen Robbins). The biggest problem, in more ways than one, is her vile daughter Kim (Gina Riley), whose back at home after leaving her husband Brett (Peter Rowsthorn), who is more devoted to his dog than her. Then there's also Sharon (the hilarious Magda Szubanski), Kim's sporty, unlucky second-best friend. The big laughs come from these characters attempting to appear chic-literate, and from their "unsophisticated" fashion, and seeing Kath's plans for her dream-wedding take hand.

The scripts are sharp and perceptive, the performances all outstanding. This is Australia's answer to "Absolutely Fabulous", bit its popularity is not restricted to its home country. New Zealanders love an opportunity to mock Australian suburbia.
