  • Kath and Kim was a great show, that has now been ruined by the American Version.

    8.5
    Kath and Kim is a show about a bogan Melbourne family without an ounce of class. It's about a Mother who is always trying to look good, who cooks tries to improve her foul mouth daughters appearance by telling her to look and do things more professional. And her husband who is usually smooth and charming who acts cool and feels cool. Then there's Kim who is the daughter of Kath who is lazy, complains and never impresses her mother. She was pregnant with her husband (Brett) who is a genuine nice gentleman who is usually pushed around by Kim and never has the last word. Then the whole families friend ''Sharron''. Sharron usually pops up in their house because she is a family friend and Kim's best friend. She is into sports (despite her size) and is not a very happy person. The show was hilarious because of it's charm, it's reality and the great cast of actors who all fitted in well with their characters. But when I saw the American version I was disgusted. They sure did sell out, but the original Australian version will always be a great Aussie comedy Icon.moreless
  • Awkward and lame has never been so funny nor even as adorable as this.

    I cannot express how utterly hilarious this show is. The US version is lacking the key component that makes this work and that's the Aussie culture. Some jokes are most definitely lost in translation. If you don't think the US version is funny please don't let that reflect on this work of pure genius. Gina and Jane are brilliant comedians and every single episode will have you rolling. Nothing can quite compare to Kel and Sharon either (another giant misstep on the part of the US copycats). Awkward and lame has never been so funny nor even as adorable as this.moreless
  • Kath and Kim exceeds any classification... it is defienentely uneywsual.

    Am I expected to actually describe this? My opinion on it is right up there with the simpsons and with supernatural (I realise the latter is probably not a good show to include in a Kath and Kim review), which makes it one of the highest achievements of the 21st century.

    It follows the day to day endeavours of two mother and daughter "Foxy Morons", Kath Day-Night and Kim Day-Night. I'm sure every Aussie in the world could relate to their exploits (although many an exaggeration takes place in the KK world) and I think that is what makes this show so popular. I only recentely started getting "into" Kath and Kim, but from the two seasons I have seen, and the one movie, Kath and Kim will almost definentely get a fifth season. Here's hoping!

    See yas!moreless
  • It's Noice. It's Different. It's AWESOME!!!!

    9.7
    The main characters are: Kath, an 'empty nester' divorcee who wants to enjoy time with her "hunk of spunk" Kel, a local butcher, but whose lifestyle is often cramped by the presence of her self-indulgent twenty-something daughter Kim, along with Kim's husband Brett and her "second best friend" Sharon.



    Kath and kim are hilarious just the little things they always say incorrectly Car-donnay, etc. Kims complete rudeness especially to Sharon her pretty much only friend. They always make a mountain out of a mole hill and say some of the most ridiculous sayings. kath and Kim is a personal favourite and always will be. Make more episodes I say.moreless
  • It's noice, it's different, it's unusual. It's Kath and Kim.

    9.1
    Kath and Kim is an Aussie comedy about the foxist lady this side of Fountain Lakes named Kath and her new hunk o' spunk of a husband Kel, hornbag Kim with husband Brett and young adorable Epponee Rae, and who could forget last but not least, the incredibly unluck in love Sharon.



    A hilarious show with great characters that manages to have brilliant on-going story lines without getting stale. The lines on the show are classic and have redefined Australian slang. Each episode is just as entertaining as the last and just as quirky. Kim is always the centre of attention just as she likes it and poor Sharon always gets the bad luck. I love all the characters and how they are so different yet similar in so many aspects.



    Kath and Kim is one of my all time favourite shows and will remain to be for years to come.moreless
