The Too Much tV Roundup- July 25th

Normally, on a Monday, i would be praising Outer Range yet again. I finished that last week, so who made it to the top of this Monday’s chart? 1) Night Sky (Amazon) English Audio Description Available?: Yes Something interesting is finally happening to the secondary storyline, as it becomes more clear that for some reason our Latinx family is here to hunt down Jude. But what really made this show work had nothing to do with the science fiction,and everything to do with the quiet work JK Simmons has been building on all season. Some absolutely heartbreaking work from him … Continue reading The Too Much tV Roundup- July 25th

The Too Much TV Roundup- July 12th

There was this thing again in the middle of the day that won’t appear in my rankings of shows. That would be a weird thing to rank. And obviously, I’m talking about the Emmy nominations, which I definitely watched live. JB Smoove was not the right person for that announcement. 1) Ozark (Netflix) English Audio Description Available?: Yes For those wondering why I’m still watching Ozark into July, even at one episode per week, it’s because binge watching critics ruined the back half of the season by revealing the biggest character death. And this was that episode. i was dreading … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- July 12th

June is now over. How did I wrap up the month? 1) Breeders (FX/Hulu) English Audio Description Available?: No I my continued journey to get Martin Freeman an Emmy nomination for his work on Breeders, after finally working his way back into the house, he suffers a back injury. This gets him some pain meds that lead to some very interesting behavior and an honest conversation with Luke, but when they wear off, ultimately Paul heads to the doctor… and we are left with a cliffhanger. Freeman’s work on this show is consistently darkly hilarious while also having a ton … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 30th

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 Best Of 2021

With the Oscar’s swiftly approaching, and my Oscar final predictions released yesterday, it’s finally time to discuss who i think actually should have been nominated in the major categories, and who I would vote to win. This list will be completely different than the Oscar list, because I am just myself, I have no guild or board of people to mess up my nomination process, and my awards mean nothing. No actor is sitting out there waiting with bated breath to see if they will be included on Mac The Movieguy’s Best of 2021. Which is great for me, because … Continue reading The Best Of 2021
