I noticed people are complaining about Kat's confidence and enthusiasm when the original character of Miranda is apparently more awkward and insecure. While I can understand that, I like that Kat is confident. She's a 39 year old woman who owns her own business and knows who she is, while remaining approachable and imperfect. It's a welcome change in my opinion as the awkward shy character who blossoms has been done many times already.
Also, American sitcoms have just always been different than British shows. I love that British shows tend to have more character development and usually a very defined story to the season because a season (or series as they say) is usually only 6 episodes. American sitcoms go for over 20 episodes a season most of the time and are more about making us laugh and escape for a half hour than they are about engrossing us in someone's struggle. Both have their place and can be very enjoyable.
I'll probably enjoy Miranda when I get to watching it, and perhaps my opinion on Kat will change, but for now I really like this show. The lightheartedness is a welcome escape from reality nowadays, the jokes make me laugh, and as a side note, I also like the atmosphere, set design, and architecture. The building that houses Kat's home and business is inviting and has very cool features.
