The Too Much TV Roundup- 05/27/23

Not aware of any major TV news, except I noticed that Apple is still calling this coming episode of Ted Lasso a Season 3 finale. Jason Sudekis has been pretty clear that this is the final season. I don’t know what the disconnect is. It also seems like with Ted likely moving home, and the rest of the cast living in the UK, if there was a Season 4, they’d have to dump the entire British Cast and follow Ted at a new team, or dump the title character, both decisions that could ruin a good thing. 8) Great Expectations … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- 05/27/23

The Too Much TV Roundup- 05/26/23

Yesterday, the first in a trio of finales hit the TV world as Maisel fans said goodbye to their favorite program. Coming up, in less than a week, are the series finales of Succession and Ted Lasso. It’s a sad week. 11) The Adventures of The Gummi Bears (Disney Plus) English Audio Description?: No Status: Ended Despite my love of this show when I was a kid, this third episode did absolutely nothing for me.Part 1 involved a surprisingly friendly dragon, and part 2 involved… well… I don’t know because it was hard to follow without audio description. But one … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- 05/26/23

John wick: Chapter 3: Parabellum

Where I Watched It: not On peacock English Audio Description Available?: Yes If you follow my every move, you already heard what i had to say about having watched john Wick on Peacock, and also Chapter 2. Neither had audio description, but both left the service at the beginning of May. I last saw them on FreeVee. The problem is, I’m still trying to finish this cycle, and be ready for Chapter 4, but I’ve also never seen Parabellum. it was easier for me to sit through the first two films without audio description to allow myself the opportunity to … Continue reading John wick: Chapter 3: Parabellum

But I’m A Cheerleader

Where I Watched it: Amazon English Audio Description?: No When you first come out of the closet, the first thing you are given (aside from a Rupaul lexicon so you know all the trendiest phrases) is a copy of But I’m A Cheerleader. I lost mine. I know it’s around here somewhere, but according to the marketing of bros, nothing existed before that, so perhaps this was just a 90’s fever dream. The 90’s certainly were a very interesting time in the evolution of independent cinema, especially queer cinema. I sadly grew up in the Bible Belt, so our movie … Continue reading But I’m A Cheerleader

I did not plan this today. But i watched a new episode of Citadel the same day Amazon greenlit a second season. So that is my big TV news story to rock your world this morning. 12) All In The Family (FreeVee) English audio Description?: No Status: Ended Other than remembering Rob Reiner yelling about his Polish heritage at one point, my sleep last night completely erased what this episode was about. Occasionally that’s a problem with a show when i watch this much stuff in one day. Episode Grade: ? 11) Futurama (Hulu) English Audio Description?: No Status: Revived … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- 05/25/23


Where I Watched It: Peacock English Audio Description?: Yes Do you love Willem Dafoe? I don’t mean, do you enjoy him on occasion. I mean, if we were in some desert island scenario and it was just you and Willem Dafoe, would you be OK? because, he’s basically the only person in this movie. There are some other really bit parts from actors seen on security cameras, or in dream sequences, but the entire film is Willem Dafoe playing a thief who gets trapped in an upscale condo fully decked out with all the smart house elements, and the owners … Continue reading Inside

Well, my first day with MAX and I can say that I didn’t have a problem migrating. it did return a title I had removed from my Continue Watching. So, it’s aggressively trying to get me to watch something and give it a second chance. And, it refuses to play Shazam: Fury of The Gods, but other things went just fine. How has your MAX experience been? Are you ever so happy that we did all of this so you could have more reality TV? 9) Florida Man (Netflix) English Audio Description?: Yes Status: Limited Series I’m not sure what … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- 05/24/23

The Thing (2011)

Where I Watched it: Netflix English Audio Description?: Yes Narrated By: Miles Neff Miles is such a great narrator. I love how he seemingly is always fully engaged in whatever he’s narrating, giving it that fanboy charm that helps to keep you engaged. It works great for the Star Wars films he’s narrated, but when it comes to this remake of The Thing, which features some of the weirdest, goriest, most creative body horror I’ve experienced in audio description, I kinda feel like Santa Claus got caught watching porn or something. I associate Miles with happiness. This is not happy. … Continue reading The Thing (2011)

HBOMAX became MAX. Peacock is up next, and look for the streamlined Cock coming soon. Just kidding. or am I? Anyway, the big news sources read me, clearly, since in my review for the American Idol finale yesterday i devoted that time to writing about how Idol had completely ignored former winner Just Sam, who is back to having to busk for money in the subways.Later in the day, Deadline broke that as a news story. hah. 7) Dead Ringers (Amazon) English Audio Description?: Yes Status: Limited series Well, this is a very odd series. I thought episode three definitely … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- 05/23/23

Wynonna Judd: Between Hell and Hallelujah

Where I Watched it: Paramount Plus English Audio Description??: Yes This could have been an even darker film had Wynonna chosen to spend the duration talking about her mother. However, this is less about the tragic way Naomi Judd left us so suddenly, and more about how Wynonna put herself together, with the help of country music, to go ahead with the promised tour that was supposed to be her and Naomi. I’ve always known who The judds were, but never could claim being a massive fan. But the pacing of this film, and the care it takes in telling … Continue reading Wynonna Judd: Between Hell and Hallelujah

Today is MAX day! Except… it’s not here just yet. I checked my apps, and HBO MAX still works. Basically, at some point today, you will be prompted to get the new MAX app. There are a few pieces of tech that support HBo MAX right now and use a screen reader that won’t work with MAX, like PS4. PS5 however will. There’s a new tier, and according to the press release, this 20 dollar a month tier is where the 4K lives as well as 4 streams. I’m a bit confused by the warning I saw about Game Of … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- 05/22/23

American idol crowned a winner last night. I’m watching it today. I know who won, and thank God. 15) Drops Of God (Apple Plus) English Audio Description?: Yes Status: Unknown This was an odd duck of a series.I’m not even really sure I understand what the show is about. There was a lot of focus on being able to taste really specific flavors immediately, and perhaps becoming a sommelier. But, I think of the new shows I watched, I enjoyed this one the least. It didn’t really establish to me what it wanted to be, and instead tried almost an … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- 05/21/23

History Of The World Part 1

Where I Watched It: Hulu English Audio Description?: No No matter which film critic you follow, we all have the same problem. Catching up. It’s only getting worse for newer, younger film buffs attempting at becoming film criticism, because their list of films that they need to see is even longer. So, as this was made before i was born, this was on my catch up list. And while I have familiarized myself with the genius of Mel Brooks, it wasn’t this film. Then, hulu decided to do an awful Part 2, and I really needed to see how big … Continue reading History Of The World Part 1

In A Valley Of Violence

Where I Watched it: Netflix English Audio Description Provided By: Nicol Sansorella One of those random out of nowhere reviews. Honestly, I likely would have continued to pass up on this film until i noticed that it was directed by Ti West. I wanted to see what he had in the tank when not making a straight up horror film. The idea that West was making a revenge western was almost as intriguing as that time Eli Roth made the family friendly The house With A Clock In It’s Walls. When a director becomes synonymous with a specific genre, it … Continue reading In A Valley Of Violence

Well, that Disney/Hulu pull list I mentioned earlier got a little shorter as the internet clapped back about one title Disney was planning on purging, the documentary Howard, which centers around the composer Howard Ashman who was instrumental in the revival of Disney, starting with The little Mermaid. Not only did it seem in poor taste to remove a documentary about an LGBT icon right before pride month, but also right before the live action adaptation of his work hits the big screen. So, Howard will not be pulled. 13) Great Expectations (Hulu) English Audio Description?: Yes Status: Limited Series … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- 05/21/23
