TV on DVD: Fashion wasn’t the only crime on Kath & Kim

In television on 07/07/2009 at 9:45 am

I was going to write about the DVD release of the first (and only! praise the lord) season of Kath & Kim, the NBC series starring Molly Shannon and Selma Blair as a dysfunctional mother and daughter with spellbindingly bad taste in fashion and nothing, ever funny to say. But then I found out that if it is no crime to make such a bad, bad sitcom, then it is not a crime to release it on DVD. There was such potential — the opening sequence of them strutting through a mall, the promos that gave a hint that the show was one sharp one-liner and hilariously bad fashion pose after another, what looked to be Blair’s ferocious skewering of her fashion image. However, the episodes revealed a show that was only posing at sharp, smart humour, instead settling for mundane ba-rump-pump sitcom setups.
Ah well.
