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 20th

A bit of a mixed bag today. Definitely a wider range of quality than on Sunday. 1) Outer Range (amazon) English Audio Description Available?: Yes Things really heated up in this episode. The interim sSheriff showed she’s a lot smarter than people give her credit for, Royal threatened the land commissioner who clearly did not feel threatened, and someone else now knows about the black hole. That was definitely a way to end that episode. I thought Will Payton was going into the hole, but turns out… well I’ll find out next week. This is what TV watching should be. … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 20th

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

The Too Much TV Roundup- June 17th

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. Episode Grade: A 2) Barry (HBO/HBO MAX) English Audio Description Available?: Yes After the shock of trying to remember what the … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 17th

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

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

No Time To Die

Starring: Daniel Craig, Lea Seydoux, Rami Malek, Jeffrey Wright, Ana de Armas, Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw, Lashana Lynch, Naomie Harris, Rory Kinnear, Billy Magnussen, and Christoph Waltz. Directed By: Cary Jogo Fukunaga Where I Watched it: Amazon English Audio Description Available?: Yes Description Provided By: Deluxe Narrated By: Jedidiah Barton The plot: Bond (Craig) has retired following the events of Spectre, but just when you think you’re out they pull you back in. He even has a new squeeze (Seydoux), and this guy (Malek) has to ruin his peace by being another megalomaniac with some delusions of grandeur that involve … Continue reading No Time To Die

The Too Much TV Roundup- June 11th

I’m too intimidated by Homelander to rank these shows any other way. 1) The Boys (Amazon) English Audio Description Available?: Yes In the fourth episode, the stakes are raised. Homelander is becoming the biggest problem he’s been since the show started, making him an obvious choice for a final battle at the end of the season. Maybe Homelander won’t make it out of Season 3. But if he has to go, what could possibly replace him? Episode Grade: A 2) Roar (Apple Plus) English Audio Description Available?: Yes In the second outing, which dealt with memory loss, what could have … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 11th

The Too Much TV Roundup- June 10th

Time to make the donuts. 1) Ozark (Netflix) English Audio Description Available?: Yes In the 9th episode of the final season, Ruth is still giving zero fucks. She does manage to put herself together to attend the funeral with Three. Meanwhile, Grandpa is in town, and he’s looking for Ben. This was a great episode full of little moments and exchanges that truly created something special. For example, Jason Bateman’s realization at the end of the episode that he can’t even trust his own wife to tell him the truth. It was that resigned acceptance that sold me on the … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 10th

The Too Much TV Roundup- June 7th

Well, I have a couple of shows now with only one episode left that will be finished off next week I believe. Picking the top show today was difficult, as a couple of shows were firing on all cylinders. 1) Russian Doll (Netflix) English Audio Description Available?: Yes In what I believe is the penultimate hour (possibly for the series), Nadia went through some really trippy stuff as she gave birth to herself, then decided to kidnap herself and bring her back to the future, only to find out that time seemed to be collapsing around her. But then her … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 7th

The Too Much TV Roundup- June 5th

Always keeping it interesting by throwing a different mixture of shows against each other. Who is on top? 1) Girls5Eva (Peacock) English Audio Description Available?: Probably. look, I tried to activate the audio description, but the app was buggy as hell. This show has AD, but because I didn’t personally listen to it, i can’t outright say Yes. But, every time I watch this show, I become more and more convinced that based on laughs per episode, this is the funniest show on television. Any platform. You have to like the nonsensical humor, but if this show is your thing, … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 5th

The Too Much TV Roundup- June 4th

I still feel like I’m trying to play catch up with all these damn TV shows. Today was a cluster of awesomeness though. I’m very happy with the majority of what I watched yesterday.Picking #1 was a challenge. 1) Stranger Things (Netflix) English Audio Description Available?: Yes Choosing the 4th episode of the season to top my random assortment of shows watched yesterday was no small feat. There was a lot to love in several shows, but after leaving us in the lurch at the end of episode 3 with the fate of max, we got an episode that seemed … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 4th

The Too Much TV Roundup- June 4th

An interesting day, because The Boys are back in town! 1) The Boys (Amazon) English Audio Description Available?: Yes The Boys have returned, and boy does this show up the ante almost right away on “you can’t do that on television, oh I guess you can.” I can honestly say I’ve never experienced a scene where a tiny superhero shrinks himself so he can climb into the urethra of a penis and try to bring a man pleasure from inside the partner’s body. That was a new one. Big reveals. Surprises. And as always, The Boys is aiming to be … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 4th

The Too Much TV Roundup- May 31st

Sometimes, you just pick a really good block of shows, and then your day of watching feels very well spent. Here’s a rundown of everything I watched yesterday. (Yes, everything. I didn’t watch a film yesterday). 1) Reacher (Amazon) English Audio Description Available?: Yes Last week, I acknowledged I was one episode away from finishing this season, and I had to rank it in second then because it was up against a season finale. I said then that Reacher would be on top when I finished, and I kept my promise, despite putting it on the same day as the … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- May 31st
