They've Got No Sense of Yew-ma.

Kath and Kim is the best comedy series, like Evah. That's partly because there is no canned laughter, its deadpanned, pun ridden and Australian.

Guess what? The yanks are doing a 'version'. More than just a rumour now its bypassed the pilot stage and there have been actors cast; Selma Blair as Kim and Molly Shanon as Kath. I've no idea who these people are, but they better be fucking good.

On the plus side, its being re-written by the same guy who reswizzled Ugly Betty. On the minus side, said guy was responsible for the American version of The Office. So it seems there's a fifty/fifty chance of it being not shit.
