"The Ex List" Series Review by Eva 10/6/08
Kath and Kim Thursday 8:30 Eastern 7:30 Central NBC
Kath and Kim is the American version of a wildly popular Australian comedy
Series. the show's premise is simple: forty-something hot mom Kath Day (Molly
Shannon) is happy that her daughter Kim got married because she feels its time
to get on with her life. Kath falls in love and quickly becomes engaged to a
sandwich shop owner Phil Knight, and the running joke in the first show is that
Day will soon become Knight. Kim (Selma Blair) returns home after having a fight
with her husband and decides to separate from him after six weeks because he
doesn't understand how important Britney Spears is in her life.
Kath and Kim is a good old-fashioned silly comedy that doesn't mind making fun
of itself and saying what the audience is thinking, like when Kim points out to
Phil that the Kath Day-Kath Knight joke is getting old after both she and the
viewers have heard it about ten times. I think this show is fun to watch and
it's been a while since I have seen a good silly campy comedy show on TV. Kath
and Kim have a very dysfunctional relationship, and you soon realize that this
mother and daughter have not grown up yet, but at the heart of their
relationship is a very deep love for each other.
I think since the show is on must see TV Thursday it can't help but be a hit, so
all I have to say is "Welcome to America, Kath and Kim - I hope you stay around
for a long time". I give this show a 5 out of 5.
