Kath & Kim: Season 1 Reviews

November 14, 2019
It's unwatchably badly written.

The urge to click to something more pleasant -- Saw IV maybe -- is nigh unto overpowering throughout Thursday's premiere of NBC's new Kath & Kim. I'm trying to be charitable.

[A] few scattered kinda funny parts don't make up for the obnoxiously unfunny whole.

[A] mother/daughter Odd Couple that is drained almost immediately of any comic value.

If there was ever an argument against all the remake foolishness going on in television, "Kath & Kim" is it.
September 19, 2019
The show has been painlessly Americanized and might as well be an indigenous creation, armed as it is with wicked, wacky comment on the mores and morals of the mall culture.

"Kath & Kim" is among the most unpleasant viewing experiences of my lifetime.

[W]e're watching a couple of loud nitwits in the vain hope they will say or do something clever or funny.
September 19, 2019
It lacks the charm of the original. Worse, the characters in the NBC show are so exaggerated that the whole thing feels like a skit. A long, long skit.

"Kath & Kim" is proof - yet again, my friends - that creating a successful sitcom is a stubbornly mysterious process, that even a collection of the very best ingredients can make for a tasteless stew.
September 19, 2019
Witlessly Americanized by Michelle Nader (King of Queens), Kath manages to waste the talents of Molly Shannon while exposing the limits of Selma Blair's comedy range.
September 19, 2019
The core problem with K&K is that there's no character to root for.

[M]ostly the show irritates more than it amuses.

Granted, the brush-strokes for this comedy are broad, but it's still irresistible.

... the unappetizing Kath & Kim is fixated in the oral stage.
