What I’m Watching: Call Me Kat

Call Me Kat: Season 2, Episode 7 “Call Me Cupcake” (B+)

It’s fun to see the relationship between the eternally peppy Kat and the eternally peppy Oscar evolve, and for them to show that they can get through the occasional disagreement just fine without their rose-colored goggles being permanently burst. Oscar volunteering to help out at the café while Phil was away seemed like a mistake from the start since working together can put a strain on any romance. Naturally, it was all good at the start, with Kat impressed by all the efficiency-driven changes he had made, and it was only when he unknowingly accepted a crazy huge order that they couldn’t fulfill that the cracks started to show. Insisting on making one giant batch of dough was his first big offense, and it only got worse from there until it all devolved into a food fight. Max and Carter doing a competitive juice cleanse at the same time was funny, and I most enjoyed Max smelling a customer’s food as he delivered it, a far more appealing invasion of privacy than what Carter did with those donuts. I thought that Phil going with Sheila to Bora Bora was going to result in them having to pay back all the money they charged to Preston’s card, but instead it was just an opportunity for Sheila and Phil to commiserate about how their lives didn’t turn out how they had expected. I did like that Phil switched out teaspoons for tablespoons as a way of encoding his recipes so that no one could steal them.
