Kath and Kim remade for the US....badly

Check out the US remake of Kath and Kim.

I object to NBC billing this as "Australia's number 1 show", when that isn't what they are showing at all. Although it is fair enough they remade it - it would have to be subtitled to be shown in the US (just like the Mad Max DVD someone showed me the other day, which has been dubbed with American accents).

I agree with those in the SMH article - I'd be surprised if it lasts a month.

That looks terrible - like the US version of The Office. Why is it that Americans are so afraid of foreign culture, that they have to re-brand everything to save themselves from the unfamiliar?
