What I’m Watching: Call Me Kat

Call Me Kat: Season 2, Episode 3 “Call Me a Sporty Giant” (B+)

It’s fun to see just how different Kat and Randi are, and how the two of them spending all of their time together might drive Randi just a little bit crazy. Her eternal peppiness and incredible ability to turn anything into a song – including brushing teeth and decaf coffee – were definitely taxing for the less patient Randi, and Kat jumping to conclusions and buying a new couch ended up being a bad move given the money Randi had literally hidden in the cushions of the couch she gave away. Their outing to the grief support group was a longer errand than they had planned, but Kat got some catharsis regarding her dad and they even got to hash out the complicated pieces of their friendship. Kat’s request for a group hug was great distraction, but Randi didn’t pick up on it right away. I enjoyed Randi’s reaction to Carter offering to make coq au vin, which he had never made and didn’t even know exactly what it was, when she was going to stay over two nights in a row. Carter being upset that the bar didn’t make the bar crawl list led to an entertaining series of hijinks following the bourbon tasting. Sheila seemed excited by the idea of getting to step in to help since Kat had never done anything dangerous. Phil did manage to learn how to ride a bike but not how to stop, but Leslie Jordan seemed a lot more well-suited to the task when he rode ride back in for the ending wave session.
