What I’m Watching: Call Me Kat

Call Me Kat: Season 1, Episode 9 “First Date” (B)

I kept wondering what it would be about Oscar that just wasn’t right, with each new revelation something extraordinarily positive. Laughing off the failed mustache operation and responding very well to her comment about sex on the first date were all indicators that he was indeed perfect, but then Kat went and saw Max in her bedroom before saying his name instead of Oscar’s when she thought she was over it. He took that in stride too, and was even eager to meet Max. But that was the clever misdirect here, leading into the relatively expected but still welcome storyline of Max realizing too late that he does like Kat too just as she’s starting to get over him and look at him as nothing more than a friend. He’s better at keeping secrets than she is, but I have a feeling that their gossipy friends, namely Carter, are going to notice that he’s acting strangely and not let up until they find out what’s going on. I don’t know where this whole shoe saying thing came from since I don’t think I’m familiar with any such phrases aside from walking a mile in a person’s shoes, yet somehow that managed to get completely in Randi’s head to the point that she got talked out of giving Daniel the shoes he apparently would have loved before he ended up getting her a pair of shoes. At least that romance is still going and she’s trying to keep up with his low-key energy that constantly throws her for a loop.
