Kat’s Weekly TV & Movie Recap #43

I was back at work this week and somehow failed to manage my time properly, so things were super chaotic. Still, I watched some stuff – let’s check it out!


Interview with the Vampire (Season 1)

What a fantastic season and general start to what they are trying to do with the Immortal Universe. The acting of Jacob Anderson and Sam Reid was divine (although the entire cast was amazing with many standout performances throughout), the pacing was slow but delicious and the tension impeccable. It was brutal and yet beautiful to watch. Somehow it felt very intimate, despite being a completely fantastical story. I was really in love with the show as a whole and the nuance and intensity it brought with it. They’ve taken the source material and elevated it, while still keeping fun twists that readers will recognize. I mean, I guessed the reveal for episode 6/7, but it was still so fun to actually see it being said out loud in the final scene of the season.

I genuinely cannot wait for more, because the drama is going to be amped up quite a bit next season and it’s going to be oh so fun. But first, we will see if the Mayfair Witches can keep up!


Walker: Independence (Season 1)

I have so many questions! Is Tom alright? What happened with Calian? Why aren’t there more episodes??

Reginald the Vampire (Season 1)

The vampire assassin lady is crazy and that is what makes this fun.

White Lotus (Season 2)

Just like with Season 1, I find it hard to root for any of the characters, while I adore most of the cast. Let’s see where it goes.

Mythic Quest (Season 3)

I love this show and am so excited to have it back. Especially looking forward to what kind of mischief Brad is up to.

9-1-1 (Season 6)

Is it just me or should Buck have really seen it as a sign that he’s not meant to be a sperm donor? I mean, come on, I still smell disaster brewing when it comes to that decision.

Station 19/Grey’s Anatomy (Season 6/Season 19 Fall Finale Crossover)

The crossover part of this was really negligible, because they could have interacted with each other way more. I was sad to see that Jack’s sister-storyline wasn’t dealt with more, but I loved the spotlight on Hughes and the Fire Chief. I truly wonder what Nick and Meredith are going to do, with her goodbye being imminent in the next episode. If he abandons the intern program, I’ll be sad.


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

I had no time for movies this week. Sorry.

Did you watch anything I’ve watched? Are there some movies/shows I should check out? Let’s talk about that!

  1. I’m glad you enjoyed Interview with a Vampire. I’m aging myself a bit here, but I was wondering why they would make this when there’s the Brad Pitt/Tom Cruise, Kirsten Dunst, Antonio Banderas movie. haha!
    I haven’t watched much TV other than college basketball this week. It’s that time of year now where I probably won’t get to watch much other than that. Although, I do want to watch that new Lindsay Lohan Netflix holiday movie.

    • Honestly, I think that Jacob Anderson and Sam Reid are acting circles around the iterations of Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise of the same characters. Also, this version gives it so much more depth and us, the viewers, the time to explore those nuances. I can only highly recommend it.
      I literally got an email from Netflix about that Lindsay Lohan movie haha I haven’t gotten around to it yet though.

  2. I’m so looking forward to the final episode of Interview with the Vampire, especially the reveal in Episode 6. I’m excited to see who Rashid really is (I have my guesses but I’ll keep quiet for now).
    As far as what I’m watching, I’ve been keeping up with American Horror Story and all the new Law & Order stuff, plus anime. I watched a horror movie called Cube that was quite tense and surprising, and I saw Black Panther: Wakanda Forever last night. Without getting into spoilers, it was really good, and I did get a little teary at times.


  3. I felt like the Station 19/Grey’s fall finale was so lacklustre. It didn’t do anything for me. I’m going to keep watching when it comes back, but Station 19 is really losing me this season. I guess I’ll wait to see if it really picks up.


    • Interview with the Vampire is a social media phenomenon, but not actually an easy watch. There’s a lot of very dark themes and with episodes averaging at almost an hour, it’s slow and torturously detailed in it’s narration. Awe, the final season of Derry Girls was nice.
