Kath & Kim is a new NBC comedy that is the American adaptation of a popular Australian series. Molly Shannon and Selma Blair star as the title characters, with Shannon playing Kath and Blair playing Kaths daughter Kim. Kath is upbeat and newly in love with a sandwich shop owner named Phil (John Michael Higgins). Meanwhile the self-absorbed Kim has recently moved home after walking out on her husband of six weeks, Craig (Mikey Day).

From the preview clips below, it looks like Kath and Kim have a strange relationship. While their personalities clash, they both seem to understand each other. They flip back and forth between bickering and then getting stuck on some random tangent that they both agree on. Its kind of funny. TV Guide gave the pilot a poor review in their recent issue but as comedy pilots are often awkward and were dealing with an adaptation, I think Kath & Kim deserves a chance, at least for a few episodes. Since its airing during NBCs Thursday night block of comedies, itll be virtually unavoidable.
