Kat’s Weekly TV & Movie Recap #32

I’ve been doing a lot of stuff this week, but very little of that involved reading, so here we are again with a round-up of what I have watched. Check it out!

FINISHED TV SHOWS/SEASONS

Selling the OC (Season 1)

Not going to lie, I was a bit bored with some of the interpersonal drama on Selling the OC, but they had some really nice houses to show and the beach vibes were impeccable. It’s not up there with Selling Sunset yet, maybe because it’s so much more people at the office, but I enjoyed myself. I’d definitely watch more of all of that go down. Someone tell them that it’s okay to not wear heels all day and that you, in fact, shouldn’t wear them on a boat though. That hurt my heart.

Only Murders In the Building (Season 2)

I love Only Murders in the Building so much! It’s a great show and I was really worried about it feeling played out in the second season. They did a great job though and kept it fresh, while still retaining the spirit from the first season. What I enjoy so much about the show is that you can have an inkling of an idea as to who the killer might be, but in the end, it still feels like surprise somehow. It makes total sense, but it also doesn’t feel like everything pointed to it the entire time. That’s what makes it good entertainment!

I’m so glad it already got renewed for another season and that we’ll get to see more of the latest murder victim. I really want to know what the deal with that character was. Also, I’m keeping my fingers crossed for more Theo! His interactions with Mabel were the best.

The Cuphead Show (Season 2)

I’ve never played the game that The Cuphead Show is based on, but I always really like having it on in the background. The art style reminds me of my childhood, but it’s definitely made for adults. Season 2 sometimes felt a bit more cohesive than Season 1, but overall, I have very little to say about it. It’s neat, but with its 15-minute-long episodes also a bit forgettable.

WEEKLY TV SHOWS

She-Hulk: Attorney at Law (Season 1)

So. much. fun! I know I’m a week late to the party, but I thought the first two episodes were great, albeit a bit short. I don’t know what all the bros are complaining about, because all of it made sense to me so far.

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

Well, well, well … I’m glad the cat’s finally out of the bag. If we had dragged this Maddox/Jet-secret out for much longer, it would have not been great. So looking forward to what happens next, because Jet’s song was great.

Star Trek: Lower Decks (Season 3)

So happy to have my chaotic team back! That’s what you get for not believing in Starfleet though, Beckett.

Good Trouble (Season 4)

This was the most jealous I have seen Dennis ever and it makes me mad, because it was so obvious that as soon as Davia would move on, he’d be back to pining.

Roswell, New Mexico (Season 4)

My girl Heather Hemmens directed the last episode and she did a great job, even if that meant no Maria on screen. They can’t do that to Malex though, can they?

MOVIES

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

I rewatched Top Gun: Maverick. Still love that movie!

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

  1. Only Murders In The Building is great fun. The concept is great, the execution is flawless. Looking forward to Season 3. I have not seen the second episode of She-Hulk yet, but did see the first. Not sure about it just yet. Found her getting the powers a bit “easy,” and trying to figure out how they are going to fill in eight more episodes. Surprised to hear there were that many compared to other Marvel projects. Maverick may still be the best movie I’ve seen all year.

    • She-Hulk’s story-arc will become much more clear in episode 2, even though it was barely 20 minutes (not counting the recap and credits).
      Maverick is just amazing. It’s definitely among my top movies of the year as well.

  2. I did watch OMITB s2, I struggle with mystery still but I find it an easy watch. Oliver makes it for me. I did really like Theo and Mabel’s scenes too… I would like Will to have more scenes with the other characters too. Maybe next season but it could be a long shot.
    I am liking she-hulk, I think it will get stronger as it goes on. The episode are so quick but love the personality of them.

    • Will and Oliver’s scenes were THE MOST PRECIOUS!! I loved that arc so much and really felt for them. I’d enjoy seeing him more involved for sure!!
      She-Hulk has a funny side to it, which I enjoy. The Fleabag-esque 4th wall breaks, the dichotomy of Jenn vs. She-Hulk, I’m definitely interested. It does have 10 episodes in total (I think), so there’s more that can happen still.

  3. I finished The Sandman last night and loved it. The bonus episode weirdly got my creative gears flowing. I look forward to the eventual season 2. And I’m enjoying She-Hulk so far as well. What are people complaining about? And I saw the first two episodes of Little Demon. More sexual humor than I like, but I’m going to keep with it. And I’ve made it to season 5 of the original Law & Order series. I won’t be caught up by the time the new season debuts next month, but I should be a fair amount along.

    • Neil keeps hinting at the fact that a season 2 of the Sandman really isn’t secure, so I hope it will happen. It would be a shame to let this go after just one season.
      Well, mostly people are complaining about Jennifer’s attitude, much like they did with Carol Danvers back in the day. They say she could not possibly control her anger like that and that it’s “unrealistic” that she’s more adept at being the Hulk than Bruce. They belittle her experience as a woman of constantly having to keep her emotions in check, because it could not possibly compare to Bruce’s trauma and so on and on and on
