Causeway

Where I Watched It: Apple Plus Audio Description Provided By: Pixel logic Narrated By: Darren Polish i know the last time I saw Jennifer Lawrence in a film it was Don’t look up, but somehow, even though that wasn’t that long ago, it feels like she’s been taking a conscious break, or being really selective. That’s why I kind of wonder what drew her to Causeway. In Causeway, Lawrence plays a veteran who has experienced extreme trauma that has messed with her ability to remember things. She even has to relearn certain things like driving, as well as names, and … Continue reading Causeway

Raymond and Ray

Where I Watched It: Apple Plus Audio Description Provided By: PixelLogic Narrated By: Laura Post I’m sure Apple was hoping for Oscar gold with this Ewan McGregorr/Ethan Hawke film, but what they got was just a forgettable film with some ideas that can’t really decide what to do with them. is it a comedy? A drama? A dark comedy? Who knows. you decide. The aforementioned leads play the titular characters who find out their estranged father has died. One wants to go, but doesn’t have a driver’s license, so he makes his brother go with him. Once they get there, … Continue reading Raymond and Ray

The Too Much TV Roundup- October 22nd

Good golly Miss molly. I finally reached the breaking point of audio description on one of these shows. But which one? And how high did it go? Last week, with audio description it managed a first place finish. Can it do that against seven shows that all had audio description? 8) Fire Country (CBS/Paramount Plus) English Audio Description?: Yes I’m glad that CBS seems to be sticking with audio description for now with their new big hit drama. My concern now is that the show is going to do exactly what I was afraid of in the pilot, and have … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- October 22nd

The Too Much TV Roundup- October 20th

Six shows enter. one will make the top. This is The Round Up. 6) The Masked Singer (FOX/Hulu) English Audio Description?: No Does anyone else find it incredibly reductive for an artist like the one eliminated last night, who is a legendary singer in her own right, to be eliminated immediately? This show has always had a problem with legends, as their older voice isn’t as popping as it once was. But throw her from her prime into this competition, and she would not have gone home. In some ways, The Masked Singer can’t figure out how to keep these … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- October 20th

The Too Much TV Roundup- October 14th

A long list of shows today. And, still in the new countdown format. One of these shows, I’m really not sure I’ll be staying with. 8) History 101 (Netflix) English Audio Description?: Yes I’m just putting this last because I’m really not sure I needed 23 minutes on hallucinogenic drugs. I’m not totally sure they’ve covered enough topics yet to be at a point where this is the right time, though I support their medicinal use. Maybe, i just didn’t care that this episode existed? Episode Grade: B- 7) Moe (Netflix) English Audio Description?: Yes So, here’s the problem that … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- October 14th

The Too Much TV Roundup- October 10th

While many spent indigenous Peoples Day their own special way, I realized what day it was right before bed, thus causing a huge missed opportunity to watch something appropriate. I could have swung an episode of Reservation Dogs. But I did not. 1) House Of The Dragon (HBO/ HBo MAX) English Audio Description?: Yes After subjecting me to audio description last week about an uncle thrusting into his niece, in a way we are supposed to enjoy(?), House of The Dragon went for broke on the descriptions of future Cryptkeeper Visirus who was barely alive when we saw him at … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- October 10th

The Too Much TV Roundup- October 7th

Just another day sliding through episodes of TV shows. 1) The Rings Of power (Amazon) English Audio Description?: Yes in the 6th episode, we focused primarily on one topic, which meant we didn’t even visit certain storylines. The refugees were about to go into battle with the orcs, who are being led by an Elf that has felt the dark side. It’s a pretty action packed hour of television, that eventually results in the merging of two groups, meaning less hopping around in the future. Hopefully. Episode Grade: A 2) Five Days At Memorial (Apple Plus) English Audio Description?: Yes … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- October 7th

The Greatest Beer Run Ever

Where I Watched It: Apple Plus Audio Description Provided by: PixelLogic Narrated By: laura Post Peter Farrelly is experiencing this moment where he can split from being a Farrelly Brother and show his range at dramatic interpretations of real life stories. Of course, he successfully landed in the history books when he directed Best Picture winner Green Book. Although that film faced a lot of backlash for it’s white savior story arc, I’m proudly reporting that we once again have a white savior.. he’s just not specifically trapped in a story about race. Zac Efron is that savior, a New … Continue reading The Greatest Beer Run Ever

The Too Much TV Roundup- October 6th

I hard a really great day overall full of solid television, and I’m here to sing some universal praises. 1) Trying (Apple Plus) English Audio Description?: Yes The third season finale of Trying did everything it needed to do. It melted cold hearts everywhere. Seeing this family on their journey over the last three seasons has been great, and on the offside chance we never hear from them again, this season finale could satisfy as a series finale. it was so cute, so adorable, it made you root for characters you loved already even more than you thought could be … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- October 6th

The Too Much TV Rounup- October 5th

Holy crap. Five days into the month so far? FIVE? This month has flown by. i even missed the day Aaron Samuels asked Cady what day it was. 1) What We Do In The Shadows (FX/Hulu) English Audio Description?: No Sometimes, every once in a while, I allow a non-audio described title to rise to the top of the list. And S4E9 of What We Do in The Shadows was worthy. A delightful episode called Freddie, where you know that something will be up with this titular character. But I never could have predicted this plot. Guillermo has secretly been … Continue reading The Too Much TV Rounup- October 5th

The Too Much TV Roundup- October 2nd

One of these shows had a trigger warning. Find out which one below! It’ll be a fun mystery until you get there. 1) The Sandman (Netflix) English Audio Description?: Yes We are getting into the meat of the show. Rose has some real power, as shown in this episode. Dream is becoming a problematic protagonist as you don’t always root for him, because his life choices are largely out of touch. So, Rose has taken over, and she’s going to get her brother back. But that seems to be a challenge, as the Corinthian has taken him to a serial … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- October 2nd

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 27th

A show that did not have audio description last week on a certain platform does this week. Did it move up in the rankings? Let’s find out. 1) The Handmaid’s Tale (Hulu) English Audio Description?: Yes The third episode of the season finds June trying to find out what purple means, Serena trying to find out if she’s done enough to earn respect in a place designed to subjugate women, Aunt Lydia pleading and apologizing to God, and a lot of other little treats. Another really powerful ending, and no matter how much I need to see Serena not survive … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 27th

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 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
