The Too Much TV Roundup- September 17th (Special Edition)

So, what in the hell could possibly make this list a special edition? You will find out right away. While I’m not sure that technically speaking the top show was the best thing I watched yesterday, there’s a very special reason it sits there. 1) Tales Of The Walking Dead (AMC Plus) English Audio Description: Yes! you read that part right. English. Audio. Description. AMC Plus. That’s a brand new offering for us blind folk, opening up another door, and another choice to those who are interested in the family of content currently offered on AMC Plus (which includes the … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 17th (Special Edition)

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 16th

I’m quite conflicted today, as many of these shows are quite close in the lineup. 1) Solar Opposites (Hulu) English Audio Description?: Yes In a world where a lot of the shows I watched today tried their hands at some different tricks, the 8th episode of Solar Opposites was wildly on brand, featuring dueling storylines between the people in the wall trying to escape, but essentially running into Morlock versions of themselves, while the main family enter this trippy reality where people are being replaced, and there’s a Hall of Betrayal. Is eating someone’s taki’s really anywhere near the level … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 16th

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 … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 15th

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 14th

A show returned, and I finished one. So, it’s like one goes out, and another comes in. 1) Blackbird (Apple Plus) English Audio Description?: Yes There are scenes in this final episode that would have caused me to hand Taron Edgerton and Paul Walterhouser not just Emmy awards, but also Oscars. They are literal fire in the final episode, with each of them at the pinnacle of their acting performances. Walterhouser has given us a glimpse of this type of capability before, but never to this level, and Edgerton seemed more interested in pumping out stuff like that abysmal Robin … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 14th

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 13th

So, what kind of shenanigans did you get yourself into yesterday? Did you watch a ghost turn into a bird and then into a human? i did. it was awesome. Stupid, but awesome. 1) Locke and Key (Netflix) English Audio Description?: Yes I’ll be honest and say that if my #2 show had audio description, it would ahve won overall. Sadly, Hulu and FX do not prioritize their blind audience at all. So instead, Netflix, with its rather consistent commitment to audio description, won with episode 6 of the final season, which saw one more villain knocked out of the … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 13th

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 12th

Well, how about those Emmy’s? Did your favorite win? With hundreds of scripted programs on the air, I’m going to guess probably not for many of you. Most of your favorite shows likely won’t even be nominated ever. But hey, at least they are predictable. 1) Love, Victor (Hulu/ Disney plus) English Audio Description?: Yes A perfect storm happened that allowed the series finale of Love Victor to rise to the top. House Of The Dragon produced its worst episode yet, and the other contenders just didn’t hit all the right notes. Love Victor figured out that what its audience … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 12th

The too Much TV Roundup- September 11th

Never Forget. 1) The Sandman (Netflix) English Audio Description?: Yes A really well done episode that featured a perfect conversation and walk and talk between Death and Dream, that showed Death and her empathy for helping those transition. The second half was mostly Dream talking to a man they had allowed to live forever so Dream could talk to him every 100 years. Really great stuff, and by far my favorite episode so far. Episode Grade: A+ 2) Beavis and butthead (Paramount Plus) English Audio Description?: Yes The new movie is still in my Top 10 of the year, so … Continue reading The too Much TV Roundup- September 11th

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 10th

A couple of new shows today. Just shaking up the rankings a bit. 1) Uncoupled (Netflix) English Audio Description?: Yes I don’t know if this can sustain. I don’t have those answers after just watching the pilot. But I am sure, this show has a terrific pilot, and i was super drawn into Neil Patrick Harris’s character, getting a glimpse of what I’m sure will be a well rounded supporting cast, all of them seeming to develop their own personalities right away. But the first episode, that dealt with the title of the show, and how Colin needed to find … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 10th

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 9th

So, my top spot today was realy tough. No shade on the second place finisher, it’s jsut that number one gave me that My God moment. Those are so rare. 1) Blackbird (Apple Plus) English Audio Description Available?: Yes In what happens to be a matchup of excellent acting, superb writing, and audio description that is absolutely on point, jimmy got more than he bargained for. He got a flat out confession from Larry. The whole thing. Every detail, And, his mission is still to remain Larry’s friend, so he had to sit there and listen as Larry described heartlessly … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 9th

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 8th

Just wait till we get to the bottom of this list. you just wait. 1) She Hulk (Disney Plus) English Audio Description?: Yes I do not care where she puts the Y in her name, but Polly Guggenheim is welcome back on this show, or any show, or any MCU movie ever in my opinion. If it were me, I’d be signing her to a massive contract right now, so she can just appear as needed, whenever we need a good laugh. Hilarious work, and in an episode where Marvel was obviously screwing with us with Donny Blaze, by making … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 8th

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 7th

Five shows enter the thunder dome. One comes out on top. one, honestly, really came out on top and if there isn’t another season I’m gonna cry. 1) The Orville (Hulu/Disney plus) English Audio Description?: Yes The 8th episode of the season was definitely a bit long, but so rewarding. A routine trip to Machlan to view the women’s colony to make sure they were living up to their agreement gave Bortis’s daughter the opportunity to meet other females, including the one brave enough to reveal herself and speak on behalf of her when she was just a baby. Things … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 7th

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 6th

I managed some television today, so the rankings won’t be so boring for the 3 of you I’m sure read this post. It’s all for you. One love. 1) The Terminal List (Amazon) English Audio Description?: Yes Well, spoilers I guess. But in Episode 5, which is not the finale, Reese managed to go after the guy responsible for his brain tumor. And he did it. In the 5th episode. That kind of felt like the big boss at the end, but a well timed car bomb, and a little sidewalk shootout took care of his guards and out King … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 6th

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 4th

On Labor Day, I laboriously watched television for you. Here’s some thoughts i acquired. 1) House Of The Dragon (HBo/ HBo MAX) English Audio Description?: Yes This Game Of Thrones prequel continues to impress me with its world building, which is hard enough, while also making small leaps forward in time. So, each episode is connected, but only by a thread as significant time has passed between episodes. Love him or hate him, Damon had a moment this episode. And the GOT lords seemed to be in his favor, although… that’s a lot of arrows. Episode Grade: A 2) Trying … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 4th

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 4th

I watched a lot of TV yesterday, and now you have to. That’s the deal. Right? 1) Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous (Netflix) English Audio Description?: Yes This animated offering, which is much better than you would think, has put out its final season on Netflix. There were a lot of shows yesterday, but nothing made me happier than starting Season 5, and beginning the sad journey to saying farewell to the six kids who made a series that was far more interesting than either of the Jurassic World sequels. And I can say this, because I also watched Dominion today, … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 4th

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 3rd

I watched a lot of great television this day. So, don’t be surprised by my top pick, because it was really freaking hard. 1) Harley Quinn (HBo MAX) English Audio Description?: Yes The 6th episode of the season, essentially a bottle episode centered around the Joker, where he’s raising a family, sitcom style, and has an adopted son named Benecio that he really wants to feel more pride in the heritage of his name and his culture, and tries to fight an entitled PTA mom to get his son a spot on a cultural exchange trip. Seriously. This is the … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 3rd
