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 "

By the way, I have never seen the Aussie version but really want to.
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.Read more ›
This U.S. version... it did not cut the mustard. I bought the entire season yet only watched the first three shows. I can't find any K&K AUSTRALIA DVDs that are U.S. DVD region. If you're lucky, you can find those shows on Youtube, but they get removed as fast as they're uploaded.
