Kath & Kim premiered on ABC Australia on May 16, 2002. Kath Day is a forty-something empty nester who is very proud of her home, ditto herself. Her daughter Kim is a pouting princess whose glass of Bailey's Irish Cream is always half empty and believes she's a horn bag in anyone's language. She's separated from her husband of two months and is consoling herself by stuffing her face. With Kath's new fiance Kel, estranged husband Brett and her second best friend Sharon they love to make mountains out of moleholls and sows ears of of silk purses. Kath & Kim leave no letter unturned as they mangle syntax and find virtue in the mundane.
