The Too Much TV Roundup- November 28th

So, as usual, picking random shows and throwing them against each other creates for a very interesting lineup.once again, lack of audio description lost the battle. 5) The Great North (FOX/Hulu) English Audio Description?: No This time, interweaving plots that involved trying to keep a cactus alive, and another that was simply trying to get Judy to “bee-friend” the new super cool exchange student from Illinois who is oddly obsessed with bees just didn’t work for me. There were some good jokes, like the popular girl not even understanding her own sick burn or where it came from, but for … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- November 28th

The Too Much TV Roundup- November 27th

Welcome back to the roundup. I managed three movies in addition to the shows below, so I’d say it was a fairly productive day. 6) Interview With A Vampire (AMC Plus) English Audio Description?: No So, I’m going to continue to review content from AMC Plus, as they have made a sliver of audio description available, and they need to know why it’s important to continue moving forward. There is not a single reason this show shouldn’t have audio description. It’s a huge new gamble for AMC, one that earned a second season pickup early on, and comes from a … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- November 27th

The Too Much TV Roundup- November 26th

So, only five titles today, but i also knocked out three films with reviews to come. 5) Little Demon (Hulu) English Audio Description?: No When I have five shows, and only one of them did not have audio description, but I generally liked all five, then the show without audio description ends up losing out. This episode saw Chrissy trying to help a friend through mind control gone horribly awry, while her parents found common ground over a dog they used to own together called Bark Wuffalo. And if you haven’t already named your dog that, you have failed. I … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- November 26th

The Too Much TV Roundup- November 25th

How did you spend your Black Friday? Binge watching? Supposedly 30% of American’s don’t buy anything this weekend. At least, that was what some guy on the news said. (his actual statement was that 7 out of 10 Americans will buy something this weekend, I just reversed it). I was in that 7 of 10, and i still got my Roundup done. 7) Acapulco (Apple Plus) English Audio Description?: Yes You know, I think I’m just going to let this one go. Four episodes in, and it’s not clicking with me. Episode Grade: C+ 6) Unsolved Mysteries (Netflix) English Audio … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- November 25th

The Too Much TV Roundup- November 24th

I used my Thanksgiving wisely. Not only did I knock off nine programs (plus jeopardy, which i don’t rank), but I also watched three movies. Satisfying indeed. 9) Star Trek Lower Decks (Paramount Plus) English Audio Description?: Yes So, the only reason this hit the bottom is that I’m sitting here right now, and I’m trying to recall everything I watched yesterday, and i literally cannot remember anything about this episode. Not one thing. So, I guess it wasn’t memorable enough like some of the other episodes. So weird. Maybe I watched too much TV yesterday? Episode Grade: B- 8) … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- November 24th

Happy Thanksgiving to all my readers out there. Tomorrow’s post will reflect what I chose to fill my time with on Turkey Day, but today’s recap is that pre-Thanksgiving window. I’m thankful for audio description, which allows me to watch a lot of programs. Only one program on today’s list doesn’t have audio description, and i am able to understand it better because I’m a long time fan. Otherwise, I think we’d have a very different relationship. And, if you haven’t followed me yet on YouTube, I’m trying to break 100 subscribers over there as well.

The Too Much TV Roundup- November 22nd

Considering how insanely busy I was yesterday, this list, while short, is actually longer than i thought it would be. 4) This Fool (Hulu) English Audio Description?: Yes Compared to last weeks amazing episode, where I commented on the amazing quality of the narration, and how they must be using a form of auto tune to shift the pitch of the narrator’s voice, only to learn that… No. He just is that good. He can pitch his own voice and speak in ranges varying characters that seem like you would need the assistance of a program, or the bare minimum… … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- November 22nd

The Too Much TV Roundup- November 21st

First, a couple of congratulations to some winners are in order. A big shoutout to Amy Schneider for winning the Tournament Of Champions on Jeopardy last night. It was a really tight finale, and overall an awesome game to behold. It was rather odd to watch someone like Matt get defeated by someone with a much smaller Jeopardy run, but the tournament brings the best of the best. That’s what it is all about, and Amy proved once again, that it is her. Also, another shoutout to Charlie for winning the Mirrorball trophy. While I would have preferred we keep … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- November 21st

The Too Much TV Roundup- November 20th

Last night, the final episode of The Walking Dead aired. i haven’t watched it yet, but I read a recap. It’s been really hard to keep up with my favorite show of all time since losing my vision, realizing that AMC and the creators and producers of The Walking Dead do not love me back, and see no value in a blind or visually impaired audience. Crowdsourcing spoilers before I watch, and watching simultaneously with a friend in another part of the country who is a fan of the series, and willing to give me some reactions is not the … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- November 20th

The Too Much TV Roundup- November 19th

Only four shows today. What isn’t making the list are the two films I also squeaked out. 4) Little Demon (FX/Hulu) English Audio Description?: No When i pretty much enjoyed all four series, the one that lacked audio description, when it has a lot of otherworldly things happening is going to be at the bottom. there ar always parts of this series I can’t follow, but I stay because several jokes land. It’s just become clear after five episodes of this, it likely is impossible to top the list, as there will always be some element, some part of the … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- November 19th

The Too Much TV Roundup- November 18th

I squeezed in eight shows for your enjoyment. How did they stack up? That’s why you’re here. That top spot could always change, and very likely did. 8) Acapulco (Apple Plus) English Audio Description?: Yes As Mossimo tries to work his way up at the hotel, he ends up being reminded that he’s just a pool boy. But, by the end, he might have just found his way up the ladder. Remember, I never watched Seaosn 1, so this was S1E3 for me. Episode Grade: C+ 7) Reservation Dogs (hulu) English Audio Description?: No Just for clarification, I decided to … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- November 18th

The Too Much TV Roundup- November 17th

There are a ton of new movies releasing across various platforms this weekend, not to mention all the new shows. it’s going to get crammed in my schedule. 6) The Masked Singer (FOX) English Audio Description?: No Sometimes, i don’t even understand this series. Huge bonus to all the jokes that keep shaming Nick Cannon for getting random women pregnant at an exponential rate. He’s clearly taking his last name too seriously. While I appreciated the snark of the surviving contestant, the talent this episode was really weak. Episode Grade: C+ 5) Star Trek Lower Decks (Paramount Plus) English Audio … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- November 17th

The Too Much TV Roundup- November 17th

So, i thought The Good Doctor had a new episode this week, but Hulu seems to think otherwise. I’ve been waiting to see it pop up, but I’ll just assume it got preempted somehow for some reason. One of these six shows is very much trying my patience. Will I finish the season? Will I even come back for more? 6) LaBrea (NBC/Peacock) English Audio Description?: Yes Well, the writers room has officially scraped the bottom here.This episode was full of pissing me off moments, from Scott’s uncharacteristically awful decision at the end, to the fact that for some reason, … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- November 17th

The Too Much TV Roundup- November 15th

Seven shows enter the fray. One comes out on top. Which one will it be? 7) The Equalizer (CBS/Paramount Plus) English Audio Description?: Yes i always think it’s hilarious that of all the companies that could show their generosity and donate their funds to a good cause, that the audio description is sponsored by Toyota. I mean, of all the brands out there positioned to uniquely use audio description to boost their brand, you would think Toyota wouldn’t be the first thought. However, every week, I’m constantly reminded I can go places. Thanks, Toyota. In many ways, there’s something nice … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- November 15th

The Too Much TV Roundup- November 14th

Well, I finished up a show for the season. Should provide for a different list come next Monday. 6) The Great North (FOX/Hulu) English Audio Description?: No Despite a solid joke about cleaning up the septic system and HVAC, what had two storylines ended up with its best parts being not related to the progression of either. That store in the mall presenting weird gravy flavors as some kind of ice cream was far more interesting than anything that happened in The Golden Monocle part. Kind of a swing and a miss, a rarity for this show. Episode Grade: B- … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- November 14th
