I am probably one of the very few (read: twelve) people who actually likes/watches the show Kath & Kim. For various reasons (it's a disgrace to the original Aussie version, the casting is all wrong), people just loooooooove to bitch about this colorful bit of camp. Well, I object. Sure it's nothing like the original, and it's a good thing, too, because Aussie humor doesn't always translate, and unless you're privy to the various slang terms and cultural touchstones of Down Under, you can easily get lost. But I maintain that the Americanized version kept the essence of the show -- complete with the end-of-show "wine time" segment and the near-constant exclamations by both Kath and Kim that something or other is "soooo unusual." I think Molly Shannon is perfectly loverly as the unflinchingly cheerful exercise fanatic Kath, and despite all the protests that Selma Blair isn't believable as her daughter, I quite enjoy her grouchy, junk-food addicted "trophy wife" Kim. Oh, and John Michael Higgins can basically do no wrong.
