The Too Much TV Roundup- May 13th

Actually, I’m trying to make sure I actually remember everything I actually watched yesterday. it was a lot, and I didn’t write anything down, because I thought my memory could sustain a 24 hour period. I think this is it. I think. 1) Better Call Saul (AMC/Netflix) English Audio Description: On Netflix I’m actually catching up still on Season 5, since Netflix and AMC in their infinite wisdom waited until right before Season 6 dropped to release Season 5 on Netflix. Frustrating, I know, but this show doesn’t run with audio description on AMC, so perhaps, I’ll just wait for … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- May 13th

The Too Much TV Roundup- May 12th

I did squeez in a movie in and around all of these TV shows. On a side note, yesterday was a brutal red wedding for TV shows (and decisions still need to be made by ABC and fOX). CBS has said goodbye to Magnum PI, The United States Of Al, Be Positive, How We Roll, and Good Sam. (If I could save one of those five, it would be The United States of Al, though CBS is cutting back on comedies altogether, ordering no new sitcoms, and returning next year with just the four returnees). NBC cancelled The Endgame, Mr … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- May 12th

The Too Much TV Roundup- May 11th

I’m starting to enjoy this new format, as it gives me more of an opportunity to have collected thoughts on what I just watched the previous day. Time to reveal just how much television I actually watch. 1) Mr Mayor (NBC/Peacock/Hulu) English Audio Description Available?: Depending on the platform. This is why I like the new format, because it gives me an opportunity to talk about a show I might not have otherwise singled out. But the 9th episode of this shows 2nd Season was hilarious. Spending so much time on jokes about how young people don’t know what mail … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- May 11th

The Too Much TV Roundup: Tuesday May 10th

Trying a new thing with my TV Roundups, so i can talk about more shows. It’s becoming harder to do just a top 10, and this is a broader look at everything I watch. This will slowly become what I want it to be. i did watch a movie yesterday (review not yet published), so that won’t be listed, but may have brought down the amount of TV shows. 1) New Amsterdam (NBC/Peacock/Hulu) English Audio Description Available?: Depends on the platform. So, I watched the first of the two new episodes this week, and I’m really hating that this season … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup: Tuesday May 10th

The Too Much TV- Monday May 9th

Because it’s becoming a bit insane to try and track all of the television I watch, and come up with a list of 10 shows, here’s everything I watched yesterday, ranked in order of best to worst, or favorite to least favorite. You now get the whole picture. 1) Severance (Apple Plus) English Audio Description Available?: Yes So, I had mentioned the last time I listed this show, I was one episode from the finale.

The Too Much TV Roundup

Once more into that… whatever the rest of that quote is. Here are the ten shows I watched in the past week that stuck with me the most. 1) Moon Knight (Disney Plus) English Audio Description Available?: Yes Last week for this to appear on my list. I came close to loving the finale, but it felt rushed, and somewhat anti climatic to me. It needed to accomplish a lot, and squeezed it all in there. This was a great show, and they’d better find a way to give us more Moon Knight. I don’t like the answers the show … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup

Directed By: Antoine Fuqua Where i Watched It: Paramount Plus English Audio Description Available?: Yes The Plot: In this cinematic world, reincarnation is a thing, and there are people who refer to themselves as “infinites”, who when they die are immediately reincarnated, and have found a way to regain at least parts of their memory. Except for Mark Wahlberg, because he needs to act confused and ask a lot of questions, so this movie can have a lot of exposition. Inexplicably, Chiwetel Ejiofor signed … Continue reading Infinite

Directed By: Graham Moore Where I Watched it: Peacock English Audio Description Available?: Yes Provided By?: WGBH Media Access Narrated By: Briana Leon (Updated with narrator information courtesy of a subscriber, which should now also be reflected on TheADNA.org as well.

There’s a difference, and one that he’s quick to correct you on should you dare … Continue reading The Outfit (2022)

Directed By: Michael John Warren Where I Watched it: HBO MAX English Audio Description Available?: Yes Description Provided By: Zoo Digital Narrated By: Kelly Brennen The Plot: Despite what you may believe from reading the synopsis (even the one on IMDB), this is not a staged musical event like Hamilton.
