The Too Much TV Roundup- September 26th a dive on my rankings this week.

1) The Terminal List (Amazon) English Audio Description?: Yes I will say, they closed out the series in fine form. That final reveal, the final name on the list, so brutal. No spoilers here, but it was enough for this show, which rarely does top the list, to earn the spot. Full of action, and a really nice cat and mouse game between our favorite reporter and a cooperating Secretary of Defense really helped put this episode over the top. Nice way to close out the show. Episode Grade: A, Series Grade: A- 2) Reservation Dogs (Hulu) English Audio Description?: … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 26th a dive on my rankings this week.

The too Much TV Roundup- September 25th

A few new additions to the rotation. And a surprise return. 1) The Good Fight (Paramount Plus) English Audio Description?: Yes The best time i had yesterday was watching Carmen try and get longtime guest star Wallace Shawn off a murder charge, knowing that doing so jeopardized her own life. Plus, we got a glimpse at a trial aimed at the NFL, using a fake team of course, and the hint that more Eli Gold is coming. I’m not sure why john Slattery is a series regular, but I hope it doesn’t mean less Gary Cole. I know he’s got … Continue reading The too Much TV Roundup- September 25th

Vengeance

Where I Watched It: Peacock English Audio Description?: No One of those rare reviews I still do where there was no audio description. Is this film still watchable? Isn’t that why you’re here? All movies could be enhanced by audio description for blind and visually impaired, even the easier to follow ones, because likely there is always something we are missing. Directors always like to have quiet scenes, moments where actors do things through motion not dialogue, and sometimes entire montages that pass time while set to music. Even in an easy to understand film, we can still miss out … Continue reading Vengeance

Do Revenge

Where i Watched it: Netflix Audio Description Provided By: Roundabout Narrated By: Elias. (No last name was given. He’s like Madonna or Cher.) Before watching this, I saw other YouTube critics talking about how these movies always happen in Prep Schools with rich kids that make it impossible to sympathize. Except, here, our lead is on scholarship. So, it’s not the same thing. There are rich kids, and they are your typical pains in the ass. But this movie is more about a girl who had a sex tape released of her, and her actions following that. The film does … Continue reading Do Revenge

The Too Much TV Rounup- September 24th

After hearing some of my friends discussing the show on Facebook, as well as seeing the reaction by the families of the victims, I have no plan to watch Ryan Murphy’s Dahmer at any point. Which is fine with me, since there are a billion shows I’m behind on. 1) The Orville (Hulu) English Audio Description?: Yes Well, I’ll give Seth macfarlane credit. he did write a season finale that could very well still lead into a fourth season. There are places they could go, but also this could serve as a light series finale if needed. It’s not the … Continue reading The Too Much TV Rounup- September 24th

Memory

Where I Watched It: On Demand English Audio Description Available?: Yes I was just thinking to myself, it’s been five minutes… has Liam Neeson made another film yet? It’s kind of funny when you look at his career and see how normal it was, then Taken happened, and all of a sudden this actor’s actor is playing consistently in action films where he’s a guy with a particular set of skills. And for a while, it was fun. Not that the world ever needed sequels to Taken (or a TV show for that matter), but I enjoyed several Neeson action/thrillers. … Continue reading Memory

Heathers: The Musical

Where I Watched It: The Roku Channel English Audio Description Available?: No I know Roku rarely releases their own content. There was that moment when they dropped a ton of Quibby shows. None of those had any. But, really I find myself never watching the Roku Channel unless something like Heathers is released. The last time was probably Zoey’s Extraordinary Christmas when we were all hoping they would save Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist. I still haven’t forgiven Hollywood for letting that show die. So here comes Heathers The Musical, which oddly has something happening, cause it took a while for the … Continue reading Heathers: The Musical

Contraband

Where I watched it: Netflix English Audio Description Available?: Yes Netflix. The unofficial home of Mark Wahlberg. I’m keeping this short. I’ve seen Contraband, and based on when it was released, i fully acknowledge the likely presence of another review of Contraband on my site. However, that was when i could see, and now I can’t, so this was my first time through with audio description. The truth is, the audio description is fine. The movie itself is still totally forgettable. Part of the reason I randomly reviewed this film was due to the fact that i couldn’t remember anything … Continue reading Contraband

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 23rd

Sometimes I wonder if I give out too many perfect A grades to series, and I want it to be earned when the episode warrants it. So, we have only one clear winner today. 1) Harley Quinn (HBo MAX) English Audio Description?: Yes In the penultimate episode of the season (this show has been renewed already), Harley, ivy, and the gang have to team up with Batgirl and nightwing to save Gotham as Bruce accidentally triggered a zombie apocalypse. However, ivy believes that because these zombies are infused with stuff from Frank, she can control them, so she sets off … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 23rd

Morbius

Where I Watched it: Netflix English Audio Description Available?: Yes Yes. I still watched Morbius in September after months of people mocking the film. I kept an open mind. I never go into a Marvel film, Disney or Sony, and assume I’m going to dislike it. But the way some people are talking about this thing, you’d think it already won the Razzie. If nothing, Morbius has forced Jared Leto into his most human, natural performance in a long time. He can’t hide behind a fat suit, extensive makeup, or a weird accent, he just has to be a guy … Continue reading Morbius

End Of The Road

Where I Watched It: Netflix Description Provided By: Deluxe Narrated By: Jedidiah Barton One of my favorite movies from the 90’s was Breakdown. It’s a rather underrated film where Kurt Russell and Kathleen Quinlan are on a road trip, their car… I’ll let you guess what happens to the car…. And they find themselves in this nightmare. Russell spends the whole movie trying to find his wife, and it seems like everyone is trying to gaslight him into believing she doesn’t exist. Most of these people are earthy, somewhat redneck, back woodsy types. Simple small town folk. Predominantly white. I’m … Continue reading End Of The Road

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 22nd

I got through several shows today, mostly because they were all half hour shows. Which one landed on top? 1) Paper Girls (Amazon) English Audio Description?: Yes That’s right.A cancelled and abandoned Amazon show topped the list today, as we focused a lot on Mac’s relationship with her brother Dylan, while also showing Ellen how the grown up version of herself had grown so far apart from her sister. All of this while there is a giant freaking robot in the barn out back. And then, our terminator seems to be ever so close to snatching Mac, before KJ saves … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 22nd

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 21st

Two new shows started today and thrown into the mix. I am so backlogged. 1) The Handmaid’s Tale (Hulu) English Audio Description?: Yes It takes a great actress and some amazing writing for you to hate a character like Serena, someone who has clearly been programmed so strongly in her belief system there is no possibility of reprogramming. She’s just now the big bad, inheriting all the menace of her late spouse, and the utterly absurd decision to grant her request to return home and give her rapist husband an honor funeral was a bit much. She’s a prisoner still, … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 21st

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 20th

Today was interesting to be sure. A brand new show, and an attempt to watch something presented in a new format. 1) Locke and Key (Netflix) English Audio Description?: Yes So, as we march onward to the series finale, Ellie led Gideon to an alive former classmate, someone who was very nice back in high school days, and really wanted to be a part of their group, but they never let him in on the secret. They actually went in one time to remove a memory from his head, and it was that point that they hid the key. But, … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 20th

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 19th

It was a nice day. I felt like some shows read my blog and addressed issues I was having, while others did not. i know, that’s crazy, but it feels nice to feel like you’ve been heard. Speaking of, is Disney Plus really going to let their strong commitment to audio description die with Dancing With The Stars? I thought that might be the plus side of it moving to Disney Plus, but alas, as of this writing, it has no audio description. I’m not reviewing it, as I only watched it long enough to realize there was no audio … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 19th
