Has anybody seen the Australian version? Give this show a chance!
11 October 2008 | by SylSee all my reviews

I liked Kath and Kim, the Australian version, and I have two DVD sets which I can't watch in America because of the regional difference in my DVD player. The show is about mother, Kathleen Day, played by Molly Shannon, and her daughter Kimberly, played by Selma Blair. Both are somewhat self-centered, vain, and totally into themselves. The pilot opens up where after 6 weeks of marriage, Kim and Craig have split up because she won't do anything like cook for him. Kim thinks of herself as the trophy wife who doesn't have to do anything but things are done for her. It's part of how her mother Kath have spoiled her. In the Australian version, there was Sharon, an overweight enthusiastic athletic woman, who is Kim's best friend and ally. The show tries to maintain the quality but it's more Americanized for audiences. Kath falls for the guy who runs the sandwich shop and Kim and Craig try to repair their marriage. Now there is a lot of silliness and quirkiness but I say give it time to let them grow on you. You might like this show.
