The Too Much TV Roundup- September 1st

I finally had a slower day, and knocked out some shows. So this list is competitive as hell. I know the showrunners of these programs are eagerly awaiting… the results…. No? 1) She hulk (Disney Plus) English Audio Description?: Yes Jennifer Walters is hitting her stride in the third episode which blended a lot of cameos and Marvel ideas with some regular comedy, as her colleague was forced to defend the douchebag from the first episode who claims he lavished Megan The Stallion with 175K in gifts, only to find out it wasn’t really her… it was a shapeshifting Asgardian. … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 1st

The Too Much TV Roundup- August 30th

Still a work week, so only five shows battle it out. Let me tell you, be ready for a surprise. 1) The Lake (Amazon) English Audio Description?: Yes In a shocking turn of events, a show that has never topped the list broke through in like the 7th episode of the series. What we had here was the return of birth mother (who hilariously was just called that in the audio description until someone said her name), which allowed for a lot of context to how Billie came to be in the first place, how a kick ass chill girl … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- August 30th

The Too Much TV Roundup- August 28th

Today, picking number one meant I could easily have chosen any one of three shows. Each one deserved it for different reasons. Only one gets my top spot. 1) The Sandman (Netflix) English Audio Description?: Yes while last episode I found the questionable existence of Johanna Constantine perplexing, i did have a good laugh when Lucifer Morningstar was uttered. And to know that once again mazekin is at his side… or wait! Lucifer is a woman? Anyway, as a fan of that show, and being fully aware that Lucifer came after Sandman, I just found it unintentionally hilarious. But what … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- August 28th

The Too Much TV Roundup- August 27th

Today, you might say, was a bit of a catch up day. Forgive the ensuing madness. 1) Baymax (Disney Plus) English Audio Description/: Yes i bet you didn’t see this one coming. At the top of my list is the short form series for a very good reason. the third episode of the season is one of the best episodes of any TV show this year, taking a thoughtful, honest, and rather realistic look at a young girl’s first period, which she has the misfortune of having at school, where the stalls are out of pads. But Baymax is here … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- August 27th

The Too Much tV Roundup- August 25th

These roundups are taking a hit this week. I was actually about halfway through a fourth title, but I couldn’t finish it yesterday. So, these rankings are hard today. 1) Solar Opposites (Hulu) English Audio Description Available?: Yes This episode of Solar Opposites was so on brand, that with only 3 shows in the mix today, I have to give this one the edge. not only did it give me my typical laughs I expect from the show, but it truly encapsulated that wacky tone that feels a bit left of Rick and morty, and enough so for it to … Continue reading The Too Much tV Roundup- August 25th

The Too Much TV Roundup- August 23rd

Still pretty busy in real life, so a rather low amount of shows entered the thunder dome today. One show very much came out alive. Spoiler Warning. 1) The Umbrella Academy (Netflix) English Audio Description?: Yes So this 1 episode a week thing meant that 10 weeks later, I’ve finally finished Season 3 of The umbrella Academy. I haven’t seen an official pickup for a 4th season, but even if Netflix goes 4 and done, they will go 4, or I’ll be calling them on the daily until they do. Right now, I’m going to assume the writers have plans, … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- August 23rd

The Too Much TV Roundup- August 21st

A little early for me, but don’t worry, I watched a ton of TV today, and I’m too busy to post this tomorrow morning. 1) Trying (Apple Plus) English Audio Description?: Yes This. Season. Premiere. Was. Everything! Where Breeders may be a more dramatic cynical look at raising a family, Trying has focused on the happier moments, pushing that our main couple really is trying. What I loved so much about this episode was that all of their family came together when they found out that only one of the new kids was staying. And while our leads were off … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- August 21st

The Too Much TV Roundup- August 20th

Some days are easier to rank than others. This is one of those days. 1) For All Mankind (Apple Plus) English Audio Description?: Yes In Happy valley, the race to Mars is on. There’s a dab of politics in this episode, but this quickly becomes about saving the lives of the Russian crew that are lagging behind, and after attempting to pull off something stupid, end up putting their lives in mortal danger. Ultimately, one of the two crews heades by either Danielle or Ed has to save them, but it would mean that crew wouldn’t have enough fuel to … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- August 20th

The Too Much TV Roundup- August 13th

Five shows go in, which one winds up on top? 1) For All Mankind (Apple Plus) English Audio Description?: Yes An episode that largely asked me to care about Margot right after she did Molly dirty in the last episode. Part of me would have been fine with the Russians killing Margot off in the episode, but through some nice emotional manipulation, we ended up somehow forgiving her because it’s so damn lonely on top. Meanwhile, we also had to care about Danny, who I don’t, because his obsession for Karen has caused him to break his AA streak, and … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- August 13th

Where I Watched it: Apple plus Audio Description Provided By: Pixel Logic Narrated By: Jackson Thesaurus OK. So maybe the narrator’s name isn’t Jackson Thesaurus. But, I had my keyboard out, and I was typing the information quickly at the end during the credits, and while typing Pixel logic, I heard Jackson and then… Thesaurus? If that’s his name, it’s the most bad ass name in the history of badassery. I searched TheADNA for any Jackson’s and came up short. So, I’m going with what my ears told me they heard. Luck is one of those films made by a … Continue reading Luck

The Too Much TV Roundup- August 10th

Slow news day, but I finished one of my favorite shows of the year, so it’s a bittersweet ranking. 1) Shining Girls (Apple Plus) English Audio Description?: Yes My gift to the world would be this show. What an amazing finale that perfectly wrapped up the insanity of everything set up so far in the series, and also never needing to explain the magic behind the event. This came down to Kirby versus Harper, and the final hour really felt like a stand up and cheer type of hour, as the revelations kept coming, and I fell in love with … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- August 10th

The Too Much TV Roundup- August 9th

You know? This was a pretty good day in terms of television watching. Shows that had previously started to let me down have seemingly course corrected. 1) Breeders (FX/Hulu) English Audio Description Available?: no I generally really do try and make sure the show on top is an audio described title, which makes this all the more frustrating. but I swear, Breeders feels at times like it might just be the best show on TV. It certainly is the best one that no one ever seems to be talking about. In No more part 1, we are dealing with the … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- August 9th

The Too Much TV Roundup- August 7th

One show I didn’t even finish the episode before giving up. Which one was it? 1) For All Mankind (Apple plus) English Audio Description?: Yes When you’re so personally invested in the characters that you envision yourself bitch slapping Margot down the hall for firing Molly, you know the show has great writing. Look, she may be a girl, but molly is a blind character working at fucking NASA, and I’m a blind film critic. If you didn’t think I’d have a strong reaction, and that Margot is now dead to me, you clearly misread this situation. And molly was … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- August 7th

The Too Much TV Roundup- August 4th

Well, I squeezed some shows in today for your viewing pleasure. At least one is a limited series that now is totally done. But did it top the list? 1) Loot (Apple Plus) English Audio Description?: Yes This was actually a pretty close race with not really a clear front runner, but of the seven programs I watched, Loot’s third episode, which featured Maya Rudolph at her absolute finest doing a “Hot Ones” interview, nudges out the rest of the shows. there were some contenders, for sure, but the singular funniest moment had to be that. Episode Grade: A 2) … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- August 4th

The Too Much TV Roundup- August 3rd

Well, I had to squeeze Lightyear in here as well, so, 5 shows is it for this day. 1) Shining Girls (Apple Plus) English Audio Description?: Yes I cannot stress my love for this show. I was actually having moments in this 7th episode where I was so personally invested in fictitious characters that I was doing that whole “talking to them through the TV”. I really wanted Kirby to slap the shit out of Marcus. I mean, she went out on a limb and trusted this guy, who basically thinks she’s nuts and got her fired, and then tried … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- August 3rd
