The Too Much TV Roundup- 05/22/23

Today is MAX day! Except… it’s not here just yet. I checked my apps, and HBO MAX still works. Basically, at some point today, you will be prompted to get the new MAX app. There are a few pieces of tech that support HBo MAX right now and use a screen reader that won’t work with MAX, like PS4. PS5 however will. There’s a new tier, and according to the press release, this 20 dollar a month tier is where the 4K lives as well as 4 streams. I’m a bit confused by the warning I saw about Game Of … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- 05/22/23

The Too Much TV Roundup- 05/17/23

Netflix has attempted its first upfront presentation, and to celebrate, they brought what they assumed were good tidings. Ginny and Georgia got a two season renewal, because certainly the world needed more of that. And, Virgin River got an early Season 6 renewal before Season 5 premieres. Also, Apple Plus announced that the upcoming third season of physical will be its last. 10) American idol (ABC/Hulu) English Audio Description?: No Status: Renewed This Road To The Finale clip show was mostly a waste of time. It did feature some new footage, and checked in on a handful of earlier eliminations.But, … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- 05/17/23

The Too Much TV Roundup- 05/15/23

Well, FOX is still holding out on some decisions but announced a writer’s proof schedule full of reality TV. They even revived Kitchen Nightmares. I believe ABC is the only network that hasn’t done an upfront yet, possibly also The CW. It’s hard to tell in this day and age when the Networks are feeling less energized and also avoiding writer’s strike blowback. 11) Tiny beautiful Things (Hulu) English Audio Description?: Yes Status: Limited Series I think with each episode of Kathryn Hahn’s dark comedy I tend to dislike it more. I’m not really settling in, nor do I feel … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- 05/15/23

The Too Much TV Roundup- 05/08/23

Well, fans of SWAT have had a very confusing past couple of days. After cancelling the hit drama on Friday, and seeing a torrent of backlash for cancelling a show that has risen in ratings every season, CBS has reversed its decision and given SWATT a 7th season renewal. That renewal comes at the expense of Freshman drama East New York, which was looking good for renewal and instead got the boot. I did hear the major contention over ENY was streaming rights, as CBS wanted all seasons available on Paramount Plus, but they only have the rights to the … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- 05/08/23

The Too Much TV Roundup- 05/02/23

Well, I messed this post up earlier, and in order to get a notification sent out with the correct title, i redid the roundup. In case you missed that bulletin, Dancing With The Stars is returning to ABC. between that and 911, things aren’t looking good for bubble dramas like Big Sky, Alaska Daily, The Company you Keep, and The Rookie Feds. 9) Outlast (Netflix) English Audio Description?: Yes In the last ranking, I didn’t put Outlast in last, and this gives me the opportunity to do it. I think this show and the producers made a huge error. I … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- 05/02/23

The Too Much TV Roundup- 05/01/23

I can’t claim a shortage of good news today. The WGA voted finally to go on strike, which is officially happening right now. That means all guild writers, which is most of Hollywood, have ceased working on their projects. This affects shows with quick turnover rates first, like late night talk and variety shows. So until this strike is over, expect Colbert, Meyers, Fallon, Kimmel, and others to be reruns. This also likely ended Saturday Night Live’s season, unless a deal is reached soon. Pete Davidson was supposed to host this week, and I don’t believe that’s happening since some … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- 05/01/23

The Too Much TV Roundup- 04/04/23

No major TV news yesterday that i caught, except that Showtime has already removed all episodes of the L Word: Generation Q from their service. Hope you weren’t behind. I am being featured tonight in a discussion with some audio description heavy hitters that I feel blessed to be a part of. The conversation is on LinkedIn. I finally had to join LinkedIn for this. hah. 7) Shadow and Bone (Netflix) English Audio Description?: Yes This was just a terribly competitive day. It’s not that I dislike this show, even though it sits at 7th, but rather that it ranks … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- 04/04/23

The Too Much TV Roundup- 03/28/23

Just read a little blurb saying that House Of The Dragon’s second season may actually be shorter than the first, but along with that would come an early season three renewal. I guess it has more to do with how they wanted to leave Season 2, and not just pump the show full of filler. 6) That 90’s Show (Netflix) English Audio Description?: Yes For the 8th episode, Kitty easily stole this. Mostly, the half hour was about the kids trying to find their stash. I was a little surprised at how up front they were about searching for their … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- 03/28/23

The Too Much TV Roundup: 03/13/23

First off, I wanted to start off todays list by stating that yesterday, when I mentioned the Oscar’s Red Carpet, the way I chose to phrase my snarky comments made it almost sound like I didn’t like the audio description team. My comments were directed specifically at the hosts responsible for asking inane questions, like how Hugh Grant enjoyed his cameo in Glass Onion. Now with that out of the way, here we go. 8) Animal Control (FOX/Hulu) English Audio Description?: No This is one of those shows where the lead actor has bought it some grace period, but I … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup: 03/13/23

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 16th

Despite actually having to work at my job yesterday (Yes, i still have one of those), I still managed to knock out a fair amount of programming. Who earned the top spot from this random assortment? 1) Bridgerton (Netflix) English Audio Description Available?: Yes You know, i never quite commend Bridgerton for all the great audio description, but this is top notch. Lots of comments about heaving bosoms, which when you think about how many watch this program for the escapist romantic entanglements, makes a certain kind of description really appropriate. Plus, with such a wide ensemble, I somehow never … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- May 16th

The Too Much TV- Monday May 9th

Because it’s becoming a bit insane to try and track all of the television I watch, and come up with a list of 10 shows, here’s everything I watched yesterday, ranked in order of best to worst, or favorite to least favorite. You now get the whole picture. 1) Severance (Apple Plus) English Audio Description Available?: Yes So, I had mentioned the last time I listed this show, I was one episode from the finale. Now it’s done, it’s behind me, and my mind in blown. I can’t wait for Season 2. This show is highly addictive, and gets better … Continue reading The Too Much TV- Monday May 9th

The Too Muchn TV Roundup

Here’s a roundup of everything I had an opportunity to watch last week, and the top ten shows I want to talk about, or recommend the most. As a reminder, there’s far too much TV for me to watch, so I’m perpetually behind, so some newer series I haven’t even started yet because I’m still trying to clear my list. you may be further behind or ahead of me. But I promise I consume a ton of media. 1) Moon knight (Disney Plus) Audio Description Available?: Yes Once again, moon Knight tops my list of shows I feel the immediate … Continue reading The Too Muchn TV Roundup

The Too Much TV Roundup

Once again, I’m running down the list of the 10 shows I most want to talk about from the past week. Not all may have audio description available, but it will be noted. Not all of these are recommendations, and i don’t binge watch, so I might be in a different place than you in a streaming series. 1) The Shining Veil (STARZ) English Audio Description?: No Definitely a show I would love to have audio description for, because I thought the pilot was clever as hell. It’s obviously not made to be taken too seriously, but there’s a hint … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup

The too Much TV Roundup

A day late and a dollar short. Changing up the format a bit. Previously, I just ran down the streaming services and picked a show. Now, I’ll just be doing the top 10 programs that hit me one way or the other in the last 7 days. Remember, I don’t binge watch. So, some of these might be a bit old, and you might already be done, or even behind where I’m at. Thanks to peak tV. 1) The Walking Dead (AMC/AMC Plus) English Audio Description Available?: Frustratingly, no. It’s always bothered me that this show doesn’t feature audio description … Continue reading The too Much TV Roundup
