The Kath and Kim Kountdown
Celebrities remember their favourite foxy lady clips, without managing to add anything of value.
This special features a host of famous faces: Jimeoin, Alex Perry, Manu Feildel, Jason Coleman, Vince Colosimo, Julie Goodwin, Molly Meldrum, Kylie Kwong, Donna Hay, Iain Hewitson, Shannon Bennett, Mick Molloy, Rebecca Gibney, Kate Langbroek, Jenny Kee, Michael Klim and more.
A bunch of others are also filmed on the Logies red carpet answer questions about this iconic show (did they know they would end up in a Seven special?).
This is essentially a 20 to 1 of Kath and Kim. But it’s editing is all over the place, with celebrity one-liners rather than putting a favourite scene into context: “Oh what Kel can do with his tongue,” “Kel Knight is an absolute artiste of sausages.” “Doesn’t every girl dream of being proposed to in an electrical goods department?”
Too many of their quips are simply telling us what we are already seeing.
The biggest crime here is that we just don’t see new Kath and Kim inserts, not even sitting on the patio in a Wine Time. All we get is a bit of audio. “Oh Number Eigsh!” they cry.
Some of the bloopers were fun but this just drags on for an hour instead of a mercy-killing at 30 minutes.
Spinning the clips from former episodes does remind me of just how good this sitcom was and that it stands the test of time.
On the whole I would have preferred a replay episode in full.
The Kath & Kim Kountdown airs 7:30pm Sunday on Seven.
