The Too Much TV Roundup- October 1st

Today I say goodbye to a show I’m certain would make my 100 list of my favorite shows of all time. We had quite a run. only three seasons, but those three were magnificent. So, of course, right on top… 1) Locke and key (Netflix) English Audio Description Available?: Yes I’m sad now. Not just because the show emotionally manipulated me with that time shift key one more time, but because this is it. The final episode. The Lockes defeated Gideon, and the only losses were a character we knew next to nothing about (RIP Gordy) and one who needed … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- October 1st

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 30th

Heading into Halloween season, I leave September behind with a few thoughts, and some new additions to the rotation. 1) The Patient (hulu) English Audio Description Available?: Yes See how easy that was Hulu? All you needed to do to stop getting shitty scores on this show was actually add audio description so I could follow the show. in Episode 4, the tension continues to mount, as the trapped doctor tries to communicate with the next likely victim, knowing that if he can’t get a breakthrough with his serial killer patient, the guy across the hall is dead. Not only … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 30th

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 29th

I managed to keep power during the hurricane, and with nothing else do do, I watched a lot of tv/film. So here’s a rather large list for a Thursday. 1) She Hulk (Disney Plus) English Audio Description?: Yes So, for fans of obscure Marvel characters, you got your wish this episode. However, why I put this on top is that the show has given Tim Roth’s A-Bob a chance to really grow, in a way where he might even be useful one day. He managed to sit down with Jen and really work some stuff out, while the least surprising … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 29th

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 28th

Since I live in the path of hurricane Ian, and I don’t know my power/wifi status tomorrow, you’re getting this early. This is actually what I watched today, but would normally write about on Thursday. 1) The Rookie (ABC/Hulu) English Audio Description Available?: Yes first of all, not only is the Rookie one of the best described shows on TV (definitely network TV), but it was so nice to see the whole gang together again, and in a thrilling Season premiere that saw one recurring character with their life very much in the balance. So glad to have this show … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 28th

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 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- July 14th Well, for those who follow my roundups (which I know, is everybody, including Obama), you might notice that I rarely score shows as low as I do movies. That’s because, I don’t watch shows I don’t like. That’s dumb. But every once in a while, either a show gets worse and then it’s the last episode before I quit, or the pilot is terrible. This was one of those days. 1) Breeders (FX) English Audio Description Available?: No Breaking a personal rule of mine, i am putting a show without audio description on … Continue reading

The Too Much TV Roundup- July 8th

Started to take a look at a new game show today. Ooof. Wait for my thoughts on that dumpster fire. 1) The Boys (Amazon) English AudioD description Available?: Yes Duh. Of course the season finale was going to make my top slot. RIP (Spoiler). What a way to finish an insane season. I can’t wait to see where this show is headed next year. It’s truly a shame that some of these actors can’t ever possibly get recognized for their work at the Emmy’s because there’s really no category for this show. Sure, it was nominated in drama… but is … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- July 8th

The Too Much TV Roundup- July 6th

What an oddly mediocre day of television I assembled for myself. 1) Hacks (HBOMAX) English Audio Description Available?: Yes IIn the 7th and likely penultimate half hour of the season, Deborah pitched her new show to the networks, only to have one that was even slightly interested. The funniest moment of the episode was Deborah coming home and finding out that a CD has been playing in her house since the last time she was there… in 2007. And the harshest moment was her “well you already did”, as a response to her agent disappointing her, when he actually quit … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- July 6th

The Too Much TV Roundup- June 23rd

Once again, I managed to squeeze in Episode 5 of this strange new limited series about the end of democracy. I don’t recognize any of the actors, and it’s airing on multiple channels, and it doesn’t have audio description. But here are some other programs… 1) Ozark (Netflix) English Audio Description Available?: Yes As I inch closer to the finale, I realize more and more that I will not be getting the ending to this show that I need. You know that Dark Knight quote? You either die a hero, or you live long enough to see yourself become the … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 23rd

The Too Much TV Roundup- June 12th

Admittedly, I’m still catching up on TV shows. Very much so. 1) Girls5Eva (Peacock) English Audio Description: Yes Peacock is on thin ice with me right now. They don’t actually have enough returning shows to get hyped over, as they have a rather small roster. the fact that Girls5Eva hasn’t been already renewed in a multi-season deal is insane. This is the funniest show on any platform. I know Emmy voters aren’t watching, but you should be. The second episode of Season 2 featured Wiki trying to hide one of her feet, because only one of them is perfect apparently. … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 12th

The Too Much TV Roundup- June 1st

After having a day where I watched so many amazing shows, I followed it up with a day with so many really close to amazing shows. Not quite the same thing, but not every episode is created equal. 1) Woke (Hulu) English Audio Description: Yes Yeah, I didn’t expect Woke would ever be topping my daily watchlist either. But, after watching an episode where Keef, still reeling from being attacked for his lineage, hires a new publicist who has big dreams, including having Keef use his own organization to give himself an award for black excellence. So, Keef is giving … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 1st

The Too Much TV Roundup- May 25th

Somehow around cramming all the Star Wars movies before Friday, I actually manage to squeez in a few TV shows. This was a pretty easy day in terms of ranking. 1) The Last Days of Ptolemy Gray (Apple Plus) English Audio Description Available?: Yes It’s official. I’m invested. I’m hooked. Episode 4 saw Ptolemy blowing everyone away with his lucidity, as he continues to try and use his last days to solve the murder of Reggie. I’m betting it was hilly. That kid is sketchyAF. Jackson is doing some great stuff here, but I need to also give a shoutout … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- May 25th

The Too Much TV Roundup- May 24th

Yesterday was definitely a much better day in terms of the quality of programming watched. Coming up with who gets the top spot was actually a challenge. 1) Julia (HBOMAX) English Audio Description Available: Yes Ultimately, I chose Julia, whose first season was a pleasant surprise on many levels. And since this was the season finale, and the other contenders for the top spot were not quite there yet, I landed on Julia, which will be returning for a second season. Sarah Lancashire needs to be a serious contender for a nomination this year, as well as David Hyde Pierce … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- May 24th

The Too Much TV Roundup- May 23rd

Another weird day of television where there was a clear winner for the day, and not a huge amount of TV shows logged. 1) Bridgerton (Netflix) English Audio Description Available?: Yes in the season’s sixth episode, we dealt with a wedding, some actual character development for the Queen, and a sister finally taking charge of her own destiny. I think this season is overall written better than the first, but I’m sure that the audience that showed up for all of Season 1’s sexy fun time disagrees with me on the decidedly less naked season 2. In a very crowded … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- May 23rd
