The Too Much TV Roundup- June 5th

Always keeping it interesting by throwing a different mixture of shows against each other. Who is on top?

1) Girls5Eva (Peacock)

English Audio Description Available?: Probably.

look, I tried to activate the audio description, but the app was buggy as hell. This show has AD, but because I didn’t personally listen to it, i can’t outright say Yes. But, every time I watch this show, I become more and more convinced that based on laughs per episode, this is the funniest show on television. Any platform. You have to like the nonsensical humor, but if this show is your thing, it will never let you down… or hurt you. Girls5Eva! Finally started Season 2. And I’m so glad I did.

Episode Grade: A

2) The Boys (Amazon)

English Audio Description Available?: Yes

In the second episode of Season 3, Homelander got some continued strife heading into his birthday bash, Butcher showed just how far he’ll go to fight his cause, and we saw a facility for children with powers waiting to be adopted. Oh, and at least one person explodes. So they met their minimum quota.

Episode Grade: A

3) Better Call Saul (AMC/Netflix)

English Audio Description Available?: Yes

In the 8th episode of Season 5, Jimmy/Saul took on a gig of retrieving the bail money, only to run into very unfortunate bumps in the road. Luckily, Mike is a boss. A BOSS.

episode Grade: A

4) The Big Con (Apple Plus)

English Audio Description Available?: Yes

In the third of the four episode docuseries, we saw what happened as a result of the fallout, and no surprise that our government dropped the ball. Instead of having all of Eric’s clients reevaluated, they just pulled the benefits from over a thousand people trying to live off a tiny bit of money every month, and also told those people they owed the government money back. This caused real people to actually kill themselves. There really are no words.

Episode Grade: A

5) The offer (Paramount Plus)

English Audio Description Available?: Yes

One of those shows where the audio description is very unobtrusive, because there’s a lot of dialogue, so we don’t get a lot of AD. It pops in briefly when it can. However, whatever abomination that was that happened in episode 2, when they needed to find someone to play Al Pacino… I gave this series a pass on those weak Frank Sinatra and Robert Redford impersonations, but hw this person got cast to play Pacino is beyond me. He must be an exact clone, because he sounds nothing like Pacino, even a young Pacino. And having just rewatched The Godfather, I feel even more secure in saying that. Almost broke my damn TV throwing shit at it. If only I could see my tV to actually throw shit at it.

Episode Grade: B+

6) Gentleman Jack (HBO)

English Audio Description Available?: Yes

I still haven’t made my mind up about this show in the long term. I’m still not sure what this show wants to be in the long run, though it’s in its second season, so I’m sure fans know by now. Right now, I can see what it wants to do, but that doesn’t feel like the main plot of a TV series. It’s kind of just creeping along.

Episode Grade: B-
