How is this even on the air?? I didn't find it humorous at all, just plain stupid. It's an insult to my intelligence. Kath's character is way too over-exaggerated, and Kim acts mentally handicapped. I say... get rid of it!

It's Americans trying to imitate an Australian show, missing the point that what made it a success was that it was uniquely Australian. This is just a cheap knock-off, and you're right that it's horrible.
I'm glad to know that I'm not the only who thinks so. I'd like to see the Aussie show to at least know where it came from.
Why do you all hate it so much. Take it as a compliment that your show has been adapted.. some have failed.. terribly.. but I giggle out loud at this one all the time.. I don't think it's too exaggerated either.. I love this show.. we all have different opinions.. And mine is Pro-Kath and Kim! Yay fun tv! There isn't enough of it.. If you want the Aussie version look it up on you tube.. they have lots of episodes. And honestly if you think they're 'retarded' on the American version........
I enjoy this show quite a bit. To each their own. This is an upbeat show. I can't wait for the next episode.
I think what made the Australian show so funny is knowing specific references made by the characters. I guess that people living in Melbourne find it funny because they know the types of people living in the area (Fountain Lakes=Fountain Gate, the shopping centre where much of the show is filmed). Gina Riley and Jane Turner Could not be replaced, they are fabulous comedians and if they were given more control over the direction of the American version maybe it would have had more success.
I have to say I think this show is great. A little "retarded".. but I think thats the joke. The aussie one is joking on how ridiculous some people there can be... and this one is doing the same... americana style! Just look at how kim dresses... its a (slightly) exaggerated american (slutty) teenager...she seems a little old in the show for this... but again... thats why its funny.
lighten up, its not supposed to make you think... its supposed to make you laugh... at them... for being retarded...
