The Too Much TV Roundup- September 15th

Is it possible? A cancelled TV show on top? Yes. yes it is.

1) Paper Girls (Amazon)

English Audio Description?: Yes

Amazon’s unjustly cancelled sci-fi drama continued to be really weird in Episode 3. This show is like an onion, and you will not know what the hell is going on until the center, which will take a while. That can be very rewarding. in this episode, we saw Mac find her brother, who is shocked to see her, and thinks it’s some kind of joke because mac died at 16. But, after seeing the walkman with his cassette tape in it, there’s no mistaking her, even if it makes no sense. Meanwhile, the rest of the girls are with Adult Ellen in a situation that could have gone bad fast, but instead leads to a GIANT FREAKING ROBOT. Why did this show get cancelled?

Episode Grade: A

2) Trying (Apple Plus)

English Audio Description?: Yes

I loved that there was this Assholes Anonymous group that… well… just watch. But the core of the episode found our new father getting called Dad for the first time, which led to this special girls day with Mom and Princess, as she hoped to have the same reaction. But, girls just want to have fun, and she ends up talking to a stranger… who might just be a game changer. It wasn’t my favorite episode of Trying, until it nailed that right hook at the end.

Episode Grade: A-

3) She hulk (Disney Plus)

English Audio Description? Yes

A nice episode that showed that the writers had intent to bring things full circle, and allow Jennifer Walters some really hard hitting self deprecating moments in order to beat Titania and her frivolous lawsuit. however, I still feel like Titania isn’t a well written character, in a sea of characters that are. She feels like a less entertaining version of Mattisen, but I hope that changes in the last half of the season. Overall, it felt like the momentum slowed a bit, even if the episode itself had both serious and hilarious moments.

Episode Grade: A-

4) Reservation Dogs (Hulu)

English Audio Description?: Yes

Still back rewatching Season 1, since they waited forever to add audio description. You know? I had no idea that woman had deer legs, or anything that happened in this episode without AD the first time around. it really makes me want to go to someone and just say fuck you, but I’m not sure who deserves it. I had two very different experiences watching this episode without and then with audio description. It should not be that way, and i think if most of the creators (directors, producers, writers) knew their product was so radically different, they would care more.

Episode Grade: A-

5) Evil (Paramount Plus)

English Audio Description?: Yes

Sister Andrea is a boss ass nun. Watching her beat the shit out of demons in the season finale was so rewarding. The final moment was creepy I guess, but I’m far more interested in whatever the hell is going on with Andy. I still say Season 1 is the strongest season, but Season 3 is doing a decent job of battling the fact that the curtain has been pulled back, and there is no questioning anymore.

Episode Grade: B+, Season 3 Grade: B

6) history 101 (Netflix)

English Audio description?: Yes

This Netflix info series presents a pretty straightforward educational approach that is fairly entertaining and will get you learned. You ain’t learned yet, so you need this show to teach you about GPS.

Episode Grade: B+

7) Man VS Bee (Netflix)

English Audio description?: Yes

I’d love to see Rowan play a straight up regular role, and see what is like. it’s so hard to root for his character as a father in this short form series, when he probably shouldn’t be in charge of anyones life. his character is so stupid.

Episode Grade: C+
