All of those pros are outweighed by some serious cons and I cannot force myself to watch more episodes than provided to review. Everything I love going into the show, I cannot stand while watching the show. Molly Shannon is over the top, Selma Blair is gratingly annoying, and John Michael Higgins, well he’s stuck with terrible dialogue that I just don’t buy. I haven’t even begun to mention the wardrobe!
If I had one positive, it is that Kath and Kim will be in the middle of an argument, but find time to say something nice about a rug or a pair of shoes, and I think that is totally true to real life, but it could have been surrounded by a better show all around. The original series, set in Australia, was good. Done right, I think it would have translated well, but after the two episodes I saw, I can almost 100% call this the new Coupling. It never should have been made.
