The Too Much TV Roundup- 01/13/23

I cranked out some episodes yesterday, that was the goal. Who wound up on top? how many had audio description? These are the big questions.

8) The Mosquito Coast (Apple Plus)

English Audio Description?: Yes

Eight episodes and a movie, and I can’t remember this episode at all. It has escaped my memory, something The Mosquito Coast does frequently if I’m being honest. The season opener was great, and I had hopes for season two, but this has been pretty bland.

Episode Grade: C+

7) Down To Earth With Zac Efron (Netflix)

English Audio Description?: Yes

Listen… there was some good stuff in here. But all I remember is this giant spider. As a blind person, I don’t need to think about cartoonishly large nightmare spiders out there that I can’t see lurking around me. i realize those spiders are native to Australia, but… I’m scared y’all. What happens if they become an invasive species here? Damn you Zac!

Episode Grade: B-

6) One Of Us Is Lying (Peacock)

English Audio Description?: Yes

Well, Vanessa was more involved in this episode, but it shifted back away from her perspective, and back onto characters I stopped caring about. In some ways, perhaps this would have made an excellent anthology series, because season two just isn’t working for me.

Episode Grade: B-

5) Titans (HBo MAX)

English Audio Description?: Yes

This episode was drifting away from me… and then OMG DEATHSTROKE! I get we needed backstory, and to learn about May and June, but… DEATHSTROKE. I’m sorry. This episode was slipping into boredom, and then this magical man burst into the episode and I’ve never been so happy to see him.

Episode Grade: B

4) Celebrity Jeopardy (ABC/Hulu)

English Audio Description?: No

They did that thing again where they picked one smart celeb, and two… well… not. It became a bit of a runaway. Also, ever since this show got back from break, no audio description. Two weeks in a row.

Episode Grade: B+

3) Rami (Hulu)

English Audio Description?: Yes

As you will learn about me, I appreciate good acting. Now, this season is the worst yet overall of Rami. But, this season finale tried really really hard to make up for everything, and in those final moments, when the show shifted away from comedy, Rami shows his acting chops. And he was fantastic. That is exactly what I’d been missing this season, as the show went in a hundred different directions.

Episode Grade: A-, Season 3 Grade: B-

2) The midnight Club (Netflix)

English Audio Description?: Yes

I hate when some shit is so predictable. But, our story of the week, which is really not a scary horror story, was really cool. A gay Terminator love story. Very nice. That cliffhanger ending though…

Episode Grade: A

1) Mythic Quest (Apple Plus)

English Audio Description?: Yes

In True Mythic Quest form, the season finale set characters on new paths, with some returning, and some leaving. There is a spinoff coming, and I didn’t pay enough attention to see who was in it. Maybe some characters are leaving for good.

Episode Grade: A, Season 3 Grade: A

Also, RIP Uncoupled. I really don’t understand the model at netflix. I knew so many people who watched that show, and posted it on social. Baffling decision making. Likely so they can spend 200 million on another White Noise.
