Kat’s Weekly TV & Movie Recap #30

I’ve been really busy this week, doing as much with my family and friends and for myself as I can before returning back to work next Tuesday. But don’t let that fool you, I definitely still had time to get some shows and movies in. Check it out!

FINISHED TV SHOWS/SEASONS

Locke & Key (Season 3/Final Season)

As far as final seasons go, Locke & Key was underwhelming while still offering a good conclusion. I don’t really have actual proof, but I feel like they weren’t really able to get all the actors back. While it made sense for a lot of the characters not to reappear, I expected someone like e.g. Lucas to have a part and definitely also missed the presence of Griffin Gluck.

This could very much just be a me thing, but even though there was an overarching plot, I thought that a lot of elements were unnecessarily dragged out and could have probably been resolved in way less time, but they just couldn’t get into more or didn’t have more story prepared.

Anyway, Locke & Key ultimately ended on a satisfying note for the Locke family, while leaving that door open, should anyone ever want to continue the show after all.

Never Have I Ever (Season 3)

For some reason I thought this was going to be the final season of Never Have I Ever, but there is still one more coming and I’m glad for it. This show really found its footing and has matured over time. It’s not just Devi who has grown, but all her friends and family members as well and therefore also their relationships with Devi. I cried during about 4 episodes and think this was truly my favorite season yet.

While I don’t think Devi needs all those romantic prospects, I loved how balanced this season was. The way her interactions with Paxton, Ben and others have matured alongside her was actually really beautiful. The true love story of the show is between Devi and her mom though and that is the absolute best. Could you have seen us here at the beginning of season 1? I sure wouldn’t have.

WEEKLY TV SHOWS

High School Musical: The Musical: The Series (Season 3)

They’re pushing for Gina and Ricky and I get why, but … I’m just not sure I personally need it. Definitely did NOT see the twist about Jet and Maddox coming though, that’s some good stuff!

Good Trouble (Season 4)

Davia is a great teacher, but dang … those lines are gonna blur hard in a couple episodes. Asher definitely has a thing for her and if that is pursued, it might get weird. She’s already becoming a sort of mom-substitute. And Dennis? He’s getting really serious with Ryan and I didn’t expect them to really go that hard on this relationship. We rarely ever see them hang out, they were just suddenly a couple.

Roswell, New Mexico (Season 4)

Liz as a cowboy? Not gonna lie, that was dope.

Not Okay

I’m not exaggerating when I say that I had to restart Not Okay about 5 times before I was able to finish it. Danni was one of the most difficult characters for me to watch, because she was selfish, had zero empathy and was ignorant in all the worse ways. The way she dug her own grave was so uncomfortable to witness and you, as the viewer, knew this was going to go so bad. It was just painful, but the sad thing is, it didn’t feel completely unrealistic? Rather the opposite and ultimately I thought it was worth watching until the end.
I’m pretty sure I wanted to see the movie because of Zoey Deutch and Dylan O’Brien, but Mia Isaac is the real standout. Her performance is real and vulnerable. She’s having a roll this year as I already loved her in Don’t Make Me Go. Mia Isaac is going places, I’m telling you!

Did you watch anything I’ve watched? Let’s talk about that!
