Kath and Kim (U.S.),interesting TV show

Kath and Kim,is the U.S. version of an Australian TV show which chronicles the relationships of Kath (Molly Shannon) and Kim(Selma Blair) that live in Florida. 

Kathleen “Kath” Day is the mom, 40-something divorcée who finally has time for herself and her valiant search for love. Her daughter, Kimberly “Kim” Day, is in her mid 20’s but dresses like a teenager, constantly eating as a way to console herself, and is obsessed with celebrities. When Kim decides to move back home after separating from her husband, Craig, who works at a Circuit Surplus,a.k.a Circuit City.

 

Also making their lives complicated are their significant others. Phil Knight, Kath’s boyfriend, is a decent but dorky man in his mid 40’s who owns a sandwich shop at the mall food court and has a difficult time getting along with Kim no thanks to her disapproval of her mother’s relationship. Kim’s husband, Craig Baker, has his hands full trying to deal with her dominating personality which explains their separation. Here’s a clip from the premiere episode

 

I thought it was funny and it wasn’t very bad humor either. I see some potential but there are already some reviews out there that are essentially, comparing it to the original. They don’t like it, and says, it’s horrible and it probably won’t air in Australia. Why compare it? I don’t think NBC’s intention is to make an exact copy of the Australian version. Is it? They are catering to the American audience and what they may like. Molly Shannon actually played a good mother stuck in what looks like the Olivia Newton-John video,”Let’s Get Physical”.

    Hey!

    I was wondering if you would be interested in participating in an online Hulu Awards Ceremony.

    I run a Hulu fan site blog at http://thehulureview.blogspot.com/, and am assembling a panel of bloggers and internet luminaries to judge the top-quality Hulu offerings.

    If you join the panel, you will be asked to nominate Hulu clips, movies, and shows for awards in a variety of categories. Then, you’ll be asked to vote on a short list of nominees.

    Please either email me with subject line: Hulu Awards, or post a comment on my blog. In your response, please include your name and website (I’m contacting a slew of bloggers about this).

    Thanks for your time;

    The.Hulu.Man
