Kat’s Weekly TV & Movie Recap #49

Where I ramble about all the TV shows and movies I’ve watched in the past week ….

With work and me trying to reach my reading goal before the end of the year, I definitely haven’t watched as much as last week. Regardless, lets talk about it!


1883 (limited series)

Yes, I did spend another week watching more Yellowstone related content and I HAVE NO REGRETS. Elsa Dutton is a freaking icon, because she was just a teen if we’re being honest and some of her decisions were real immature, but she was still one of the best this family has ever had. I knew what was going to happen because of the literal first episode and I was still rooting for some kind of story change the entire series.

Anyway, Dutton women are cursed, the family should give back the land to the indigenous people, because James literally said they could have it back after 7 generations and Tate Dutton is the 7th generation. Alrighty, Taylor Sheridan may have a real freaky side in the way he makes his characters suffer and tries to show the ugly truth of history, but dang … he got me hooked with his shows. The Yellowstone cinematic universe is my everything.

The Witcher: Blood Origin (limited series)

I don’t have that much to say. I thought it was a fun show and I sometimes just wished I could spend more time with the characters. I genuinely just wanted more of all of them, more of what tied them together, more of their backstory, more of their feelings for each other. I felt those bonds, despite the short run time, but I really would have loved to get a chance to explore that even more on the screen itself. 

No clue if this is based on the actual backstory in the books, but I thought it was interesting. I’m really interested in Season 3 of the regular Witcher show now.


National Treasure (Season 1)

I swear to you, if Jake Austin Walker is playing a traitorous douche-canoe, we’re going to have a problem!

1923 (Season 1)

Spencer Dutton and Alexandra are going to be THE ship for me on the show. But I already know this isn’t going to end well.

Gossip Girl (Season 2)

Everyone is excited that Georgina Sparks is back, but I’ve never liked her, so this is actual not good for me at all.

Mythic Quest (Season 3)

I think there’s one more episode? Unfortunately, not my favorite season so far.


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

A Quiet Place

This was actually a rewatch, because I still haven’t watched the second part, which just dropped in my Netflix region. So, I wanted to refresh my memory on the plot of the first one and I still think the movie was brilliant. Silence can be such an efficient tool in filmmaking and they utilized it and sound in return to perfection. Can’t wait to finally watch the sequel soon!

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

  1. You got it, A Quiet Place is brilliant and the use of silence is underutilized in film. I hope you enjoy the second one, it’s pretty good.
    This week, I finished season 2 of Alice in Borderland, which for the most part was on par with season 1. I did think the ending could have been done differently, though. It just didn’t feel like the right way to wrap up such a dark and thrilling series. Not sure if they went in a different direction than the manga, since that’s still being released here in the US, but I’ll hopefully find out soon.
    I’m looking forward to checking out all the new TV coming in January, as well as all the stuff I still need to check out on Netflix. I’ll keep you posted on my progress.
