The Too Much TV Roundup- 03/28/23

Just read a little blurb saying that House Of The Dragon’s second season may actually be shorter than the first, but along with that would come an early season three renewal. I guess it has more to do with how they wanted to leave Season 2, and not just pump the show full of filler.

6) That 90’s Show (Netflix)

English Audio Description?: Yes

For the 8th episode, Kitty easily stole this. Mostly, the half hour was about the kids trying to find their stash. I was a little surprised at how up front they were about searching for their weed, since part of the gimmick of the first show was that they avoided showing it, but everyone knew what they were talking about. But, this is still very much like Saved By The Bell The New Class. You liked the original cast, you are here for the original characters. Except, instead of Belding and Screech holding down the fort, we have the much more capable Kitty and Red.

Episode Grade: B-

5) American Idol (ABC/Hulu)

English Audio Description?: no

There was a moment in the episode where some country singer said he was studying music at Belmont, and I knew immediately he’d be good. And he was. Other than that, we brought Fire back, and at least they gave this poor thing a lifeline. She’s not the best singer, and needs some serious coaching, but from what I could hear in the promos for Hollywood Week, the alumni should be able to whip them into shape. i heard Clay, but II’m really hoping they deepen the bench this season to include other alumni we haven’t seen in a while. I’d be looking to invite back Adore Delano. That would really change things up. Hah.

Episode Grade: B

4) East New York (CBS/Paramount Plus)

English Audio Description?: Yes

Regina kind of just let that comment about foot patrols roll off her shoulders. The rest of the episode wasn’t nearly as interesting as one would have hoped. It was really just kind of sad, and then ended with Regina getting some shocking news about her Dad before attempting to go on a date with her boyfriend.

Episode Grade: B+

3) Quantum Leap (NBC/Peacock)

English Audio Description?: Yes

First off, I thought the kid would be landing the plane. Like, at least he actually had flight training. But, instead…. And then when we saw the old man version of Ian, I gotta say, that actor needs to work on his old man voice. Nothing about him sounded old. I wanna love this show Everytime out, but it had some silly moments in the penultimate episode.

Episode Grade: B+

2) Will Trent (ABC/Hulu)

English Audio Description?: Yes

Will had to investigate the death of a girl that had made it out of the foster care system and into college. Though, he does kind of gloss over the fact that she was dealing drugs to get by, he just focused on her strength to get by. I guess Will’s experience in foster care was so bad that when a former foster care kid is doing questionable shit… they get a pass.

Episode Grade: B+

1) Extraordinary (Hulu)

English Audio Description?: Yes

JizzLord becomes a cat again to help Jen win some money, while Carrie dates herself, but herself using her powers to summon back a very suave ladies man who makes her feel sexy, while her boyfriend runs around trying to recreate the plot of Mystery Men. It was a very bizarre episode, and I loved it.

Episode Grade: A
