The Too Much TV Roundup- June 19th

Today, I put myself in the position of having to choose between some heavy hitters for the top spot.

The Too Much TV Roundup- June 18th

I definitely watched too much TV on a rainy Saturday. 1) Gaslit (Starz) English Audio Description Available?: No I hate to put. Shows that don’t have audio description on top, but there was no denying the penultimate hour of Gaslit, which should serve as a For Your Consideration reel for the series two leads, Julia Roberts and Sean Penn, whose marriage finally comes to a screeching halt as secrets are revealed, and things are said that can’t be unsaid. Robert’s performance in this series is brilliance, but Penn brings a new raging fire to Mitchell, attacking for dominance. He’s scary … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 18th

It’s time to make the donuts. 1) The Boys (Amazon) English Audio Description Available?: Yes Where to begin? The brilliant cameos by Paul Reiser and Seth Rogen? How about that stepdad that is pro-Homelander trying to have some conversation with Milk about how awesome Homelander is. Or that musical number? or Mave and Butcher? There’s really no way around it, this show never bores me. And it seems to find a new way to be outlandish every time out.

The Too Much TV Roundup- June 16th

Today, once again a large chunk of my day was taken up by non-TV shows. There was a hearing, and i managed two movies. So this feels like a lower count of TV shows than usual, which makes it easier for the winner. 1) Ozark (Netflix) English Audio Description Available?: Yes In the 10th episode of the final season, Marty spent most of the episode trying to get a guy to convince to something we’re al pretty sure he didn’t do. Meanwhile, the Julia Garner vs Laura Linney face off is getting perfect as Ruth actually managed to outsmart her … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 16th

The Too Much TV Roundup- June 15th

Five shows should be easy to rank. Right? I also squeezed in a movie, so this short list is somewhat deceiving. 1) Killing It (Peacock) English Audio Description Available?: Yes The 6th episode of this increasingly more and more hilarious sitcom found Craig outside in a massive line waiting to vote just to make his daughter happy, while being followed around by an insurance agent. Meanwhile, Jillian’s sister is the literal worst. Or maybe her dogs are. I can’t tell. Probably both. Episode Grade: A 2) Miss Marvel (Disney Plus) English Audio Description Available?: Yes In the second episode, we … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 15th

The Too Much TV Roundup- June 14th

All of this, plus work, and I managed to squeez in a movie. Time management, y’all. That’s the way to do it. Finished off another show, and kind of finished off another. 1) Stranger Things (Netflix) English Audio Description Available?: Yes The last new episode for a few weeks. I loved how this episode played out, because I felt like it was trying me. At first, I was like, will Eleven ever get out of this fucking training center?

The Too Much TV Roundup- June 13th

I did use a chunk of my day to watch the January 6th hearings, so less actual TV was watched. Though, this would still seem like a lot of shows to a normal person anyway. 1) Woke (Hulu) English Audio Description Available?: Yes Any misgivings I may have had with Woke moving in a slightly different direction for its second season were wiped out in the last two episodes, which culminated in The project finally being able to distance itself from the 5G sneakers, and course correcting by swapping out all the shoes for the uh-housed population. The season wrapped … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 13th
