The Too Much TV Roundup- 01/14/23

A couple of shows, way less than Saturday, but also squeezed a movie in there. So, let’s see who landed on top. Even I don’t know as I’m writing this sentence who will arrive at the top. I’m as immersed in the anticipation as you are. We are equally anxious. 8) Inside Man (Netflix) English Audio Description?: Yes I’ll say that i was probably left coldest by this limited series where Stanley Tucci is trying to be put to death for his wife’s murder, despite the very likelihood he didn’t do it. I know I’m supposed to care, but if … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- 01/14/23

The Way Too Much TV Roundup- 01/14/23

I think I might have actually watched too much television. 15) The Sex lives Of College Girls (HBo MAX) English Audio Description?: Yes When you watch 15 different TV shows, you are bound to have erased one from your memory. I remember there being one of the girls trying to get into a hard class, and fighting with her mom on a call home about her not believing she could pass that class. The rest of this is a blur. Episode Grade: B- 14) Echo 3 (Apple Plus) English Audio Description?: Yes So, I mentioned at about this grade level … Continue reading The Way Too Much TV Roundup- 01/14/23

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 … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- 01/13/23

The Too Much TV Roundup- 01/12/23

Well, it was another day of five shows. Seems to be my average when I’m working. 5) The Rookie: Feds (ABC/Hulu) English Audio Description?: Yes Nash’s spinoff went back into it’s own thing, which involved Simone being tasked with protecting a former lover turned politician. Will her feelings cloud her judgment? Is there anything this woman didn’t do before becoming an FBI agent? Will every single task she ever performs be linked to her past as a guidance counselor? Are we underestimating our guidance counselors? Should they all be immediately admitted to Quantico? is this an untapped resource? Episode Grade: … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- 01/12/23

The Too Much TV Roundup- 01/11/23

Again, still busy now that I ahve a work schedule and the holidays are behind me. So, five shows today. 5) The English (Amazon) English Audio Description?: Yes Not that this episode was bad, but when you only watch 5 things, it’s the small details that matter. This episode featured the least amount of Emily Blunt, which is basically the reason to watch this show. Sure, I’ve been drawn into this world a bit, but it’s kind of how I feel about 1923 and the episodes where Ford and Mirren barely exist. Episode Grade: B+ 4) The Rookie (ABC/Hulu) English … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- 01/11/23

The Too Much TV Roundup- 01/10/23

Welcome back to a world of television, and i have a few more minutes to write this today, so here we go. 6) His Dark Materials (HBo MAX) English Audio Description?: Yes I’ll admit, sometimes the allegories that Phillip Pullman used in his novels went a bit above my head, but in episode two of the final season, they just come right out. Lots of talk about whether or not she is or isn’t the daughter of Eve, and it pulls you back into that part of the story. but, two episodes in, and i still feel like I’m just … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- 01/10/23

The Too Much TV Roundup- 01/08/23

A little busier than usual yesterday, so 5 shows and a movie. It’s a little like Community, if yahoo hadn’t saved it. 5) National Treasure: Edge Of History (Disney Plus) English Audio Description?: Yes Dammit. Catherine Zeta jones. You have an Oscar. Start acting like you do. Honestly, i didn’t hate this show. Our lead is plucky, and the complete opposite of nicolas Cage, and her best friend is fun. But when she sits down at the computer in this demeaningly stupid sequence, where she’s like “Do you know how many free masons there are in this state?” And like … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- 01/08/23

The Too Much TV Roundup- 01/07/23

Well, this is one of those days. Lots of shows. I’m trying to get to see some shows because I’m doing my Best of 2022 lists, and there are a few titles I still need to see. So, today I only watched 1 film, and a lot of TV. 9) His Dark Materials (HBo MAX) English Audio Description?: Yes It’s been such a long time since season 2, that I had a hard time remembering what the hell was going on. i think that was really the only real problem. Sometimes, when you have these massive casts, in these big … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- 01/07/23

The Too Much TV Roundup- 01/06/23

I was trying to watch as many shows as kevin McCarthy needed rounds to become speaker, and i fell short. it took him 15 rounds, and I only managed 11 shows. 11) Irreverent (Peacock) English Audio Description?: Yes I need to stop watching random things on peacock. After the abysmal cop drama from a few weeks back, I checked this off my list. i remember, when TV Land was a thing, there was a sitcom on there about a guy who had to pretend he was a reverend. That reminded me so much of this show, except there’s a mob … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- 01/06/23

The Too Much TV Roundup- 01/05/23

Starting to get back into work, but I still knocked out seven shows. This will likely not be the case next week. 7) Tales Of The Jedi (Disney plus) English Audio Description?: Yes I just didn’t like Choice. I mean, it was weird hearing someone other than Sam Jackson playing Mace Windu, but it also just felt like an incomplete story, or tale. It felt like a deleted scene from a DVD release of one of the prequel films. Compared to the other two, which at under 15 minutes already struggle to have a beginning, middle, and end, this one … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- 01/05/23

The Too Much TV Roundup- 01/04/23

Welcome back. Another rejuvenating list. I actually basically enjoyed everything I watched on some level. So, with 7 shows in play, who ended up on top? 7) Down To Earth With Zac Efron (Netflix) English Audio Description?: Yes Zac went into how animal rescues try and save these creatures when things like wildfires occur and devastate their natural habitat. We took a trip to Kangaroo island, which sadly is not a Planet Of THe Apes style society where Kangaroo’s have taken over and started their own form of society. I mean, they tried, but nobody really gives any kind of … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- 01/04/23

The Too Much TV ROundup- 01/03/23

Six shows, two movies. That was my day yesterday. How did those shows stack up? 6) Tell Me Lies (Hulu) English Audio Description?: Yes Thank God. It’s over. Episode Grade: C, Series Grade: C+ 5) The Mosquito Coast (Apple Plus) English Audio Description?: Yes After the harrowing experience of the second episode, our little family of fugitives make it to their destination. And like most mysterious organizations, with underground locations, this one has one of those nicknames that just strikes fear. La Casa Roja. Fuck Me. When i heard that, I upgraded my alarm system and hired personal security. You … Continue reading The Too Much TV ROundup- 01/03/23

The Too Much TV Roundup- 01/02/23

Well, it happened again. Netflix cancelled a show while I was watching it. Almost literally. A few hours later, I saw the breaking news that the show I just decided to continue had been cancelled. So, here are the 7 shows fighting for the top spot, and one of them is likely making their final appearance on this list. 7) 1899 (Netflix) English Audio Description?: Yes I think there might be a show here, but it’s slow getting started. I know they were slowly unraveling, as the captain was seeing his dead family, and the green beetles are obviously part … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- 01/02/23

The Too Much TV Roundup- December 31st

How did i close out the New year? With some movies, shows, and fun. 7 Shows, 4 movies. Truly, a new years spectacle. 7) Welcome To Chippendale’s (Hulu) English Audio Description? Yes It’s not that this show was bad, it just of all the shows, seemed to grab my attention the least. I can appreciate Kumail Nanjiani going dramatic here, but I think more levity in this show could do it some good. Hopefully, we swing a bit more in the middle for future episodes. To be fair, a lot of these recent limited series based on real life stories … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- December 31st

The Too Much TV Roundup- December 30th

Yesterday, as we get closer to rounding out the new year, I managed 6 shows, Chelsea Handler’s new Netflix comedy special, and two films. I didn’t rank Chelsea Handler’s stand up, as i think that is really truly subjective, and different people have different favorite stand up comics. 6) Mammals (Amazon) English Audio Description?: Yes I wish i could tell you what I just watched, what the show was about, what it’s long term goals were, what genre it was shooting for, or something. I felt like I was at a total loss. Sometimes, the show seems to just be … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- December 30th
