What I’m Watching: Call Me Kat

Call Me Kat: Season 2, Episode 12 “Call Me a McCluckhead” (B+)

I enjoyed the character pairings in this episode, giving us the opportunity to see people together in a different context than usual. Kat spending time with her mother may not have seemed like something new, but instead it was a chance for Kat to investigate when she realized she knew nothing about her mom. There was a surprising tenderness to Sheila stopping and telling Kat that she welcomed hearing all about her daughter since her mom never knew anything about her. All the stories Sheila tells do seem larger than life, so it’s possible that they’re mostly made up anyway. Randi and Max living together is already making for great entertainment, mainly because of Max’s absolutely ridiculous habit of storing all of his food in the couch so that he had immediate access to it, which I can understand but is also quite impractical. Carter’s get-along shirt seemed like an absurd idea, but it did allow them to find common ground and talk about all the things that he did that annoyed them. That may come back to haunt him, and I do hope that he’ll need to intervene again because these roommates will continue driving each other crazy. Phil being subtly irritated about Oscar using the word “we” to describe their progress in duplicating the sauce was an amusing subplot, one that led to an incredible success and a quick need to cease and desist thanks to the legal challenge to the secret sauce recipe that they outright stole.
