Kat’s Weekly TV & Movie Recap #53

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

It’s been a week, but it seems that February will pass by much quicker than January did. Here’s what I watched this past week!


Lockwood & Co (Season 1)

I’m going to start off by being real honest with you – if Netflix doesn’t renew this show, I will be SO upset! Their promotion team is setting them up to fail, but they deserve so much better. 

I haven’t read the books and cannot speak to any possible changes, but what I can talk about is the phenomenal chemistry between the characters. While the world is definitely interesting and had me intrigued from the get-go, it was the various character interactions, the longing looks, the tension that really carried the show. Lockwood & Co might seem like it would skewer fairly young, but I think this works for adults just fine. There’s so much you can still do in this setting and I 100% want to explore the relationships some more. I might even start reading the books, because they certainly do have my attention right now.


The Last of Us (Season 1)

Episode 3 – Long Long Time – was EVERYTHING! Every week, this show just keeps getting better and better. I never expected to be so freaking invested (and concerned about the real life fungi news we’re getting).

Mayfair Witches (Season 1)

Ugh, what can I say. I wanted to love this show so bad, but I just don’t? There’s an element missing, something that could truly grip me.

Will Trent (Season 1)

The way this man looks at and cares for Betty is everything. It’s a healthier relationship than the one he has with Angie, but that’s gonna take some more unpacking.

National Treasure (Season 1)

WHAT A TWIST!!! I mean, did you see that coming? I, first of all, thought that was an absolute minion character, but not the boss man. And secondly, do we think the death is permanent or will there be some saving involved? I’m kind of in denial at the moment, just because I think that the agent and morgue guy are the cutest.

Fire Country (Season 1)

If the drama starts getting repetitive in season 1 already, we might be in trouble. 

Wolf Pack (Season 1)

Still enjoying it, but I keep wondering if that is Ian Bohen’s voice when it comes to the anonymous caller, which in turn makes me think of Teen Wolf.

How I Met Your Father (Season 2)

Meghan Trainor was a random cameo, but my boy Sid did amazing this episode. He’s one of my top characters on the show. 

The Legend of Vox Machina (Season 2)

THEY GAVE ME SOME OF MY FAVORITE PERCY/VEX MOMENTS ON SCREEN! I still always want more, because I’m a greedy, greedy person when it comes to my ships. But truly, they are doing such an amazing job adapting the campaign and I don’t want to spoil anything for anyone, but that one cameo from an important C2 character – let me tell you, I screamed.

9-1-1: Lone Star (Season 4)

As expected, I care very little for the FBI plot. Also, what kind of amateur undertaking is this. They aren’t protecting Owen at all.


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

Teen Wolf

I watched the Teen Wolf movie so you wouldn’t have to. Saying it’s a mess is the understatement of the century, because this movie was just disrespectful. If you ever had love for this story and/or the characters in it, spare yourself! I’m still fuming and it’s been almost a week since I’ve watched it.

Granted, I should have known and I kind of did know that it was going to be terrible. So many of the cast members didn’t return (for good reason! They did Arden Cho so dirty!!) and the more I think about it, the better for them! Now they won’t be associated with whatever … *that* was. I mean, we didn’t have Stiles, Kira, Isaac, the twins or so many others. Out of my personal top 5 Teen Wolf characters, there were only two present in the movie and one of them was eventually killed off. The other got a different love interest, which was the only bright spot in the whole thing.

This entire movie catered to what Scott needed and railroaded all other characters in order to give him what he desired in life. Honestly, it felt gross. I’m just ranting now, so I better stop. My disappointment is boundless. 

If any of you want to talk spoilers about the movie, feel free to do so in the comments. I will gladly dive into it more deeply there.

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

  1. The Last of Us episode 3 is probably some of the best and most heartbreaking television I’ve ever seen. Just great. Can’t wait to see what they do next.
    I’m still enjoying Mayfair Witches, though I’m concerned that the character they introduced in the last episode, Tessa, is meant to replace Mona from the books. Mona was a free-spirited character, and my favorite, and while I understand why they may hesitate to have her in the series (she was a young teen but was known to have and enjoy sex), I feel like replacing her with a teen whose main thing is fighting injustice doesn’t work. This has been Thoughts on the Mayfair Witches with Rami Ungar.
    Also saw Knock at the Cabin last night, and it was really good. I’ll prefer the book always, especially since the film went in some different directions with the story, but it was worth going to see in the theater. And I watched The Woman King and Till recently. Damn, those are some powerful movies! Especially Woman King, which just slays in every way!


  2. Ahh great variety Kat! Omg I didn’t even realise that HIMYF had a season two – honestly I’ve seen the first few episodes and kind of got a bit bored 😂 What did you think of season 1??


  3. I’ve heard a lot of bad reviews about the Teen Wolf movie and it makes me sad because I was a huge fan of the show (I also heard some wild stuff like the fact that they didn’t have a script by the time production started which would definitely impact the movie). I wish they’d done a better job with just about everything.


  4. KAT HOW DO YOU ALWAYS MANAGE TO WATCH SO MUCH?? I’m forever in awe and also the slightest bits of VERY JEALOUS. but SHHH at least we get to read all your detailed thoughts WHICH IS THE NEXT BEST THING AND I LOVE THEM VERY MUCH. I’m so sorry the teen wolf movie sucked so bad BUT THE RANT WAS TOO MUCH FUN TO READ THROUGH OKAY. Have a great february!

    • ahahaha Anoushka, all I do is work, read books and watch TV. I have no life haha
      I’m glad you enjoyed my Teen Wolf rant, that movie was good for absolutely nothing. I could have gone into so much more detail, but I didn’t want to spoil it too much.

  5. Lockwood & Co – My daughter has been binging this show the past couple of days. I saw a little of it and it looked good. I hope they renew it for both your sakes!
    This week I’ve watched another 90s Show episode, a couple of college basketball games, and then several episodes of Breaking Bad. My husband is binging and I’m watching when I can.

    • Thank you, Deanna! sobs We need more Lockwood & Co. It has such a huge bookish fandom, it should definitely continue, but I worry about actual viewing numbers.
      That ’90s Show got renewed for another season by the way and it will have a larger season order. 16 episodes I think.
