Kat And Alfie Review
I just cannot force myself to like Kat & Alfie. I really want to, but there is nothing here to latch onto. The acting isn’t bad really and the scenery is gorgeous. Unfortunately, the story doesn’t do anything for me. It seems really slow and both episodes have been all over the place. At this point, I don’t care if I watch another episode. I have already given up on this show and do not see how it could get any better. I’d give the episode a low 5 out of 10. Catch up with previous recaps of Kat and Alfie now!
