    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!

    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 "

    Flawed people are funny.

    I'll have to watch another episode or two to see if it improves but if it's more of this, that will be one less new show I have to watch.

    All the actors were great.

    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.

    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.

    Why oh why do moronic American companies keep trying to copy other people's ideas for tv programs when they've clearly missed the point of what made the original good in the first place? The Australian original is an absolute gem of comedy but much of it's humour centred around the fact that the main characters were overweight, badly dressed, greasy haired unattractive clueless suburbanites convinced that they were the bee's knees. So what do the American copycats do? They replace all the characters with skinny beautiful people who would look at home on a catwalk! The eternally injured or diseased or rash covered sport-obsessed but fat second best friend of the daughter has been left out of the show altogether!! A huge proportion of the comedy hinged on her adorable but tragic and bad-luck-stricken character, especially where the daughter Kim was concerned, as she constantly bullied her second best friend and convinced herself she was beautiful and stylish simply by comparison. I'm guessing even the American execs couldn't find a way to turn this character into a supermodel so decided to ignore her and delete the character instead. When are these twits going to realise you don't make a successful show by copying someone else's title then replacing everyone with beautiful people! This show is cringeworthy to see. None of the original humour makes any sense now that all the characters are slim and beautiful. The original actors wore awful wigs and bad make up and terrible ill fitting clothes that exaggerated their love handles on purpose. Did you think they just didn't know how to style hair and wear clothes? Did you think that these things were flaws that needed fixing? The bad camera angles and cheap lighting were part of the humour. That was the point.Read more ›

    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.

    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.
