Call Me Kat: Grade the Premiere of Fox’s Mayim Bialik-Led Miranda Remake



Have you ever felt like a plastic bag, drifting through the wind, wanting to start again?

Sorry, Mayim Bialik‘s Kat Silver can’t relate.

The Big Bang Theory grad headlines Fox’s Call Me Kat, a loose remake of the beloved British sitcom Miranda that counts original series star Miranda Hart among its executive producers (along with Bialik’s former TV hubby, Jim Parsons). In a moment, we’ll want to hear what you think of the Stateside adaptation — but first, a brief recap of the series premiere:

Before you weigh in with your first impressions, here are a few potential talking points for the comments section:

* For those of you who aren’t familiar with the original Miranda — the BBC sitcom is streaming for free on IMDBtv — what did you think of the constant fourth wall-breaking? What about the cast introductions at the beginning at the end of the episode?

* For a sitcom set in a cat café, weren’t you expecting there to be more cats?

* Do you buy Mayim Bialik and Vanessa Lachey as lifelong BFFs?

OK, you have your marching orders. Grade the Call Me Kat premiere below, then drop a comment with your full review.
