Kat’s Weekly TV & Movie Recap #55

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

Another week is coming to a close and I’m tired af, but have no idea what from. Some days will just be like that, so I took a nap in the middle of the day and delayed the post. Let’s talk about shows and movies though! 


I didn’t finish any shows this week, but watched a bunch of movies, so stay tuned for those!


Mayfair Witches (Season 1)

I’ve finished episode 7 and we’re finally getting somewhere, but dang that’s far too late in a season to make me change my mind about the show.

Will Trent (Season 1)

Betty is the moment. Need I say more? Well, yeah. It was fun to learn more about Faith’s home life and I’m just glad we have Will Trent back after the break last week.

Walker: Independence (Season 1)

I’m so confused about what to believe. Obviously, I kinda sorta somewhat know that Tom is a terrible person, but I still thought he was one of the best characters of the season aside from Calian.

1923 (Season 1)

My darlings are alright and getting married and … aaaah! I just know this season is going to end with Spencer arriving at the ranch and the wait for the new season will be torture.

Wolf Pack (Season 1)

The CGI of the animals remains absolutely abysmal, but I keep wanting to learn more about the pack dynamics. I don’t buy Luna pining after Austin though. I’m so sorry.

How I Met Your Father (Season 2)

Sid remains a top tier character and I like how we’re fleshing out the friendship dynamics, although I wish they would include the whole crew and not just duos.

Abbott Elementary (Season 2)

Never seen Barbara this flustered before, but the real twist were Jacob’s cookies.

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

Everything about the TK/Carlos storyline was peak content, the Owen stuff stays very mid.


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

At Midnight

I continued my “Valentine’s Day” binge of new RomComs and this one was probably my favorite of the bunch I watched. It has Notting Hill and America’s Sweetheart vibes and is utterly corny. I know that parts of it will be too ridiculous for some people, but I like movies that are unabashedly romantic, not scared of not taking themselves too seriously and have that retro flair. Diego Boneta and Monica Barbaro had great chemistry and I had a really great time watching the movie! Also, almost all of it was shot on location in Mexico, which is cool! 

Somebody I Used to Know

What a waste to never having used the song during the entire movie, but what can you do? Directed by Dave Franco and co-written by him and Alison Brie, I thought that the movie was marketed in the wrong way. It’s not a RomCom, but it’s a very good film regardless. Aside from a Community reunion between Alison Brie and Danny Pudi, I enjoyed the themes of regret, change and trusting yourself. I will always watch anything Alison Brie stars in regardless, but I’d love to see more of this husband-wife-duo, because they seem to work really well together.


I so wish I hadn’t watched the trailer and while I will post it below, I don’t recommend you actually watch it. The cast was really enticing and it was an okay movie, but none of the twists hit me, because I saw them all from a mile away (possibly because of having watched the trailer). I enjoyed how every “chapter” more or less ended on some kind of betrayal, that was thematically smart, but the rest was unforatuntely a tad underwhelming for me.

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

  1. I’m actually kind of annoyed with Mayfair Witches right now. The last episode has made the plot kind of predictable to me, even with changes to the book. And at this point, I’m certain Tessa is an updated version of Mona from the books, and I don’t like the updates at all. I’m going into this week’s episode skeptical of being entertained.
    As for movies, I had a good run this week. Saw Little Shop of Horrors, which was a lot of fun; saw Winne the Pooh: Blood and Honey, and liked it for the most part; and saw Quantumania last night, and thought it was awesome. And tonight, I’ll probably be watching the original Invasion of the Body Snatchers. Should be a good time.


    • It all just sort of felt predictable after I watched the Sharper trailer? I’m not sure it would have been the greatest movie ever if I hadn’t known anything, but it might have been a tinge better.
