Call Me Kat is based on a British TV series. From Wikipedia:
"Miranda is a British television sitcom written by and starring comedian Miranda Hart. It originally aired on BBC Two from 9 November 2009 and later on BBC One. Developed from Hart's semi-autobiographical BBC Radio 2 comedy Miranda Hart's Joke Shop (2008), the situation comedy revolves around socially inept Miranda, who frequently finds herself in awkward situations. The show features actors Sarah Hadland, Tom Ellis, Patricia Hodge, Sally Phillips, James Holmes and Bo Poraj. It was taped in front of live audiences at the BBC Television Centre and The London Studios.
Receiving positive reviews from television critics, Miranda won a Royal Television Society award and gained several BAFTA TV Award nominations. The series has since been regularly repeated on British television and is available in the United States through Hulu."
Several people have made references and comparisons in the individual episode threads so far, but this would be a place for more general discussion.
I'll start - between watching eps 1&2 and ep 3, I binged the whole Miranda series. I'm not sure it needed to be remade, but at least now I have a better feeling for where they're coming from and where they're trying to go. Miranda is so over-the-top with the physical humor and cringe-worthy moments, that once I got into it I was willing to just go with it. A lot of that isn't going to translate well to Kat. We'll see if it finds its own way.
