Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The American version of Kath & Kim, based on the wildly successful Australian sitcom, owes as much to its talented lead actresses, Molly Shannon (Kath) and Selma Blair (Kim), as to its witty premise, and the combination makes the series a lovely guilty pleasure.

Mother (Kath) and daughter (Kim) are obsessed with celebrity culture and fancy themselves celeb wannabes in their own mall-centric world. Both actresses have perfected the red-carpet catwalk, for instance, with the perfect hair-toss, which nobody but each other--and the viewer--really notices. One of the best bits about the two leads is their penchant for mangling words as they put on airs (think Archie Bunker meets Married with Children…). The malapropos alone make the series worth watching. In making some silly point, Kath declares, in her closing line: "Ipso fatso." Argument won. But if Kath and Kim are shallower than the Los Angeles River, they do have big hearts underneath--which gives the series its balance.

Extras include deleted scenes, a gag reel that's truly over-the-top, and spot-on commentary by stars Shannon, Blair, Mikey Day, and John Michael Higgins, as well as the show's executive producers and writers. A lot of talent goes into making these women so perfectly dim. --A.T. Hurley "

Product Description

Molly Shannon (Saturday Night Live) and Selma Blair (Legally Blonde) bring their comedy talents to the sassy and fashionably funny series Kath & Kim. Kath (Shannon), a foxy 40-something, and Kim (Blair), a self-absorbed suburban princess, are forced to reevaluate their hilariously askew mother-daughter relationship when Kim moves home after just a few weeks of marriage. Join them in every fun Season One episode as they aspire to be just like the pop culture celebrities they love while dealing with the more down-to-earth men in their lives. Based on the successful Australian series of the same name comes this hilarious, tongue-in-cheek look at relationships that has plenty of outrageous style to spare!

4.0 out of 5 stars BRILLIANT, UNDERRATED SHOW December 9, 2011
By R.S.
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
They really should have named this show something else so people would not compare it to the AU version. The show should be judged for what it is (or was) and not compared to the other one. Having said that... This show is freakin' hilarious and full of sharp wit. I have to rewind parts sometimes to catch certain things. The show constantly makes fun of itself and is unashamedly campy. Molly Shannon and Selma Blair have great chemistry, and John Michael Higgins as Phil has some of the best lines EVER. Anyway, this show is extremely under-rated and under-appreciated. I guess if you don't "get it" you just don't get it. Too bad.

By the way, I have never seen the Aussie version but really want to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Series May 1, 2010
By R. Diaz
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I watched this series as I was hosptialized for three months. I looked forward to seeing it every week because it was one of the funniest series ever on TV. Very overlooked. Wish it could have had a longer run. Oh well, every episode is a gem. All the actors were great. Sad to see it go, but happy I have the series on DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious! Too bad the series was canceled. January 30, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Kath & Kim was one of the best comedies on television in 2009. John Michael Higgins' and Selma Blair's characters are an absolute riot. Unfortunately, the show didn't get picked up for renewal in 2010 and NBC has since removed the old episodes from Hulu.com and the NBC.com website so the only way to watch the old episodes is by getting the DVD. The Season 1 DVD compilation is great, too. There are a handful of extra features that are worth watching as well. Definitely recommend this DVD to all the Kath & Kim fans out there.

This show ended way too soon. The entire cast was hilarious and at times seemed to ad lib their lines rapid fire. I was really disappointed when it was cancelled....glad to find it out on DVD!

SNL's Molly Shannon and Hellboy's Selma Blair are the sassy fashionistas Kath & Kim. John Michael Higgins and Mikey Day are Phil and Craig, the men who worship them. And this 2-DVD set is Kath & Kim - Season 1 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment.

Based on the Australian series of the same name, NBC's Kath & Kim (like The Office) was met with criticism from fans and critics of the original series who failed to appreciate what the cast & crew of the brilliantly funny NBC version had to offer. Too bad, because this show had the potential to run as long as the shows of Molly Shannon's fellow former SNLers Julia Louis-Dreyfus (The New Adventures of Old Christine), Tina Fey (30 Rock), and Amy Poehler (Parks & Recreation). It was unfortunate that NBC didn't give Kath & Kim the chance to grow with viewers as the network did with The Office. Had fans and critics spent less time condemning the creative differences between the two versions rather than accepting them on their merits, who knows? Fortunately for devoted fans of NBC's Kath & Kim who actually get the show, Universal has neatly preserved the series in a quality DVD set with great extras. The episodes look and sound great. The commentaries are fun and highly informative. Overall, a great set. Well done, Universal.

4.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME!!! January 3, 2013

I was very upset when this show was cancelled. It isn't a show just anyone can watch. This is a very unrealistic show for most people, but being from Florida, it is totally the relationship my mom and I share.

5.0 out of 5 stars Only one season? Really? January 2, 2013
Format:DVD
I picked this up because I'm a fan of Molly Shannon. I have no familiarity with the Australian show on which the series is based, but let me tell you this is hilarious. In a just universe, this show would've swept the Emmys. The writing and acting are incredible. Why on earth was it canceled after one season? Probably because it was a little too subtle/ smart for network TV. If only TBS or some cable channel had rescued it...

I grew up in South Florida, and can attest that this show perfectly captures the sensibilities of a substantial portion of its population. It plays almost like a reality show, only funnier and more realistic since the characters aren't self-consciously hamming. I expected something more over-the-top, maybe like an Ab Fab thing, but it's subtler and more relatable than that. It's kind of what I hoped Ab Fab and reality TV would be like, smart and ridiculous at the same time.

This should've been a huge hit and run for several seasons. Sad that this one season is all we get. Maybe I'll check out the Aussie original.
