Ok. I've seen the first eight episodes Big Grin Season two starts airing on Saturday, I believe.

I think the jokes translate pretty well to American, simply because I laughed a lot. Things like Kath fake tanning the wrong arm, the Sharon Stone bra and pants that comes without pants, all the little wrong word things, and the sight gags all come through very well Big Grin But then I'm not altogether sure I was laughing at all the same things Australians would laugh at. The accents, for example. I'm not sure how much is regular and how much is extra, so I just laugh when it's funny to me Wink

I love the lookat moyie's Big Grin My son was in and out of the room the other day when I was watching and he thought it was quite funny. Then this evening I picked up our cat Francine (who looks a bit like Kath, everyone agrees) and did a run of lookat moyie, and the boy cracked up. So nine year-olds who see a few of the gags think it's funny as well.

The bit when they went to the club and had the $100 in cocktails was hilarious, naturally. Kath's face getting jiggy in the camera was just too much. Even Paco laughed aloud, which isn't always easy to accomplish. I should go rewatch that episode right now, actually Smile

Next.

'Party' is my absolute favourite episode Big Grin

"Look at me mum, don't you think I look like Britney Spears?"

"Yeah yeah, you could be her sister, her sister Asparagus, Asparagus Spears, get it get it get it? hahahahahahaha" Big Grin

I love when it's showing what Kath got up to during the night, dancing with the drag queens, pashing the taxi driver (which, by the way was her husband in real life) and then her sleeping on the front lawn with the sprinkler on.

And don't you just love Sharon? Hehe, I like her in the first episode, after she's been stalking Brett and she's sleeping in the armchair. The way she is lying their looks so funny. And later when she's filming him, and it shows her asleep on top of the dumpster or whatever it was Big Grin

I'm too overly excited right now to type properly anymore, so I'll leave it at that for now.

I plan on throwing cooked rice at my sisters wedding Smile

Hey, thanks for that! Smile

I can see now that a lot of the yumour translates well.

No one really talks like Kath and Kim in Oz, not to mention Prue and Trude. The accents are exaggerated based on how some perceive middle class and upper middle class suburbian Anglo Saxon speech.

The thing that probably doesn't cross over is when they mention the names of celebrities in Oz, but I don't think they do that very often.

Glad you enjoyed it! Now you've got to get yourself a 'hornbag' apron. Big Grin

Hooray for Season 2 Big Grin

In the episode 'The Moon', Kath reminds me so much of my own mother :P

For some reason, Trio is playing The Moon twice in a row instead of following it with Obsession. Then they skip to the one after Obsession. I...do not understand. They did it in the early showing and now in the now showing. hmpf... And no repeats of it in all of October and November. I am displeased.

They showed everything up to 'Obsession', but not 'Obsession' itself, just 'The Moon' twice, then 'My Boyfriend' and 'Another Announcement'. They're showing the last two of Season 2 in a couple of days, apparently.

I've written them a polite e-mail explaining and asking if they plan to show the missing one. It's not like I can just watch Trio 24 hours a day waiting for them to fit it in. For cripity sakes.

Also, how do you even balance a pineapple on your head, chopsticks or no?

Ah okay, I mis-read what you said, in my head.

I hope it was just a silly mistake and they will show the missing episode. Unless they thought it was too raunchy to show.. Eek

I've been hearing about a movie.

When Rove asked them on Tuesday night, what they'll do next, if there'll be a movie or a 4th series, Jane just said "We don't want to run it in to the ground. Or, maybe we do" hehe

Gina and Jane were on 'Mornings with Kerri-Ann' today. It was a good interview. They played a clip of Gina when she did sketches as 'Kerri-Ann Kennel' in Fast Forward. Big Grin

They also played a bit of the Midweek Ladies from 'Big Girls Blouse' Big GrinBig Grin

*screams at the top of his lungs* Series 3 starts tonight!! Eek Eek Eek

*gets some Dippity Bix ready in the good room*

My mother loves going to the airport, even if she's not going on a plane. She'd love to dag around there for the weekend Big Grin

Also, there's this one shot when Kath and Kel are in that VIP place, when Kath is looking at those magazines on the shelf, the way she stands there is so how my mum stands Razz

Hm. I tried to take a screenshot of the stance I was talking about, but for some reason none worked. I did take some from another episode just for fun, which worked fine..

Get this. I wrote to the Australian ABC (we have an ABC as well) to see if there would someday be Region 1 DVDs and they said this:

"Unfortunately all ABC Shop DVDs are encoded in Region 4 only and will only play on Australian or multi-regional DVD players.

DVD Regions were imposed by the DVD industry itself when they invented the format. Their aim was to uphold copyright and prevent piracy. ABC, producing or reproducing content in our Australasia region, must print all its DVDs in Region 4. We aim to ensure our DVDs wherever possible play on Australian players only."


But...but...I want outtakes.

So can anyone else print them? Like, they could franchise the rights to some American company or whatever? gah....

I'm going to go watch the school reunion episode. Kath saying "dowager's hump" cheers me up every time Smile

That sucks Frown I hope someone else can release the DVDs. There's some real gems on there Smile

What you REALLY need though, is the Big Girls Blouse DVD, so you can watch the little 5 minute or so K&K sketches Smile

A few scenes from Kim's Wedding.. (sorry about the poor quality)







Hehehe...

The series doesn't really follow on from the sketches though. On the first season DVD, they have "Kim and Brett's Connubials" as a special feature, which you can catch Kim watching a bit of in the first episode. You don't actually see the wedding though, just a bit before, and then coming out and going to the beach for photo's.

The footage you're watching is supposed to be what Sharon filmed, so you don't get to see or hear her. Just people talking to her.

Jane played Brett in Big Girls Blouse, at the very end of the final sketch. She played him as a male version of Kath, which was quite scary :-P

I'm hoping against hope that they release "Something Stupid" on DVD, which was the successor to Big Girls Blouse. That had K&K shorts on it, in which Kim was pregnant. In one of those, Marg "Marion" Downey played 'Nanna Day' hehe Smile

I hope she shows up as Nanna Day in this current season Big Grin

My word I've rambled..
