CALL ME KAT took a nosedive this week. The comedy sitcom was not very funny and featured Max’s (Cheyenne Jackson) money problems. I miss seeing more of the main character, Kat (Mayim Bialik). She is the force behind the joy of this series.

When CALL ME KAT first began, it showcased the humor of Miranda Hart from the British version. She is one of the Executive Producers of the American show, but her distinct light-hearted style and faux pas seem to be gone. I miss the breaking of the fourth wall and talking more to the audience. I need Kat to make more silly mistakes and come out shining like a rose in the end. All of this is just not there anymore.

Phil (Leslie Jordan) is still my favorite character next to Kat. He never fails to give the best advice to Sheila (Swoosie Kurtz) in the kindest, most thoughtful, well written way. Still not enough.

CALL ME KAT is available to stream on FOX Television.
