Kat’s Weekly TV & Movie Recap #3

I’ve kind of been an anxious ball the entirety of the week, so I didn’t have the attention span to watch a lot. This post will therefore be a bit shorter than usual. I still want to keep it going on a weekly basis though, so let’s dive in!

FINISHED TV SHOWS/SEASONS

Uhm, none … I’m getting there, but I’m behind on a lot of stuff and/or waiting for shows that will release in February (e.g. Dollface and Starstruck Season 2 are just around the corner).

WEEKLY TV SHOWS

I forgot to mention this, but please beware of Spoilers in this section! As I’m talking about the shows as they air, I might mention plot points etc. which you might not want to know about if you haven’t caught up yet. I won’t, however, put anything in bold that’s a reveal!

How I Met Your Father (Season 1)

I feel like I’m more invested in the show than my friends, which is okay, but also makes me curious if I’ve lost my touch. Anyway, I’m having a lot of fun with it. I like all the actors and characters, even though I can’t help but wonder if we were duped by the first episode into believing there were only four viable “dad” options and there’s actually more. I wouldn’t like that.

Also, if you can help out with the tweet below, it would be much appreciated. I’d really like to get that signature necklace of hers?

The Cleaning Lady (Season 1)

This might be one if not my most favorite new release of the season? It keeps getting more intense, but I just cannot believe I’m rooting for Arman of all people. He’s a whole freaking criminal. Not that the shady FBI guy would be so much better …

Abbott Elementary (Season 1)

This show, while being funny, just always brings the best to the table. This week, it showed how important it is to not just scold kids for acting up, but also to figure out why they’re acting up. It’s *chef’s kiss*!

Pivoting (Season 1)

I guess I’m sticking with it for now, but while I like the premise, the execution just isn’t all I want it to be. I just don’t believe any of the acting?

Promised Land (Season 1)

This one surprised me! The way it was told in the first episode kind of reminded me of This Is Us, but with much more intrigue! It’s about immigration, family empires, bonds forged and broken … I’m definitely going to keep watching.

Call Me Kat (Season 2)

It’s just a sweet and nice show to watch. The stakes aren’t super high and it leaves you with a smile.

Euphoria (Season 2)

I’m sorry, I just want more Lexi (and Fez). I just don’t really like many of the characters and Lexi, Ethan and Fez are maybe the exception. I don’t know. Just give me my Lexi episode already, will ya?

Superman and Lois (Season 2)

I LOVE that they do misdirects concerning the villain every season. Last year, we thought it was going to be about an alternate universe Lex Luthor and this time around, people were convinced it was going to be Doomsday. Well, I’m happy it’s Bizzaro instead.

Something that irks me a little is the Sarah storyline though! I can’t believe all the characters equate him having powers with her infidelity? No one is really telling Sarah that she made a mistake, but instead it’s just on Jordan to forgive her and I don’t really get that thought process. It doesn’t matter if it meant something to her or not, she still cheated.

And lastly, I really don’t want Jonathan to take X-Kryptonite, but we all knew that’s where the show was heading …

Nancy Drew (Season 3)

I wasn’t feeling the season as much, but these final episodes are great! I just worry about the fate of the show. Some of the tweets of from the writers make me fear they won’t get renewed, which would suck big time.

9-1-1: Lone Star (Season 3)

Everyone is just constantly in danger! They’re really stretching out that ice storm storyline and I’m not sure how much of a fan I am of it …

MOVIES

As always, don’t forget to add me on Letterboxd if you want to be up to date on all my movie experiences! 

Emma

I  know, I know … I’m so late to the party of watching it, but I was proven right in my reluctance. While I adore the cast, the aesthetic and the work put into the set/costume design and cinematography, Emma just remains my least favorite Austen story. As much as it pains me to say, because I know a lot of people love her, I just can’t stand her character and think she doesn’t deserve Knightley. Not even this new take on things could change my mind.
