The Too Much TV Roundup- October 29th

A slow Saturday, but I still managed four shows and a movie. Here’s how those four shows laid out. 4) Little Demon (FXX/Hulu) English Audio Description?: no I think the most frustrating thing about this show isn’t the content, which I’m sure turned away viewers, it’s that because FX slacks on AD, or Hulu refuses to use it (who knows), this show doesn’t have it. So, all of the absolutely crazy stuff that happens, regarding demons or demons using abilities, or even our main girl using her powers, a lot of that visual stuff is 100% lost on me. I’m … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- October 29th

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 15th

Seven shows to count down today. No heavy hitters to block the top spot. So who will it go to? 7) The Rookie: Feds (ABC/Hulu) English Audio Description?: Yes I’m a big fan of the original flagship show, so it will take a lot for me to stop watching this, but it just doesn’t have the same flavor. Sometimes, there really is magic in casting a perfect ensemble that balances itself out, and telling the stories with the whole group. Niecy Nash is hilarious, but sometimes she takes up the whole room, which is something Nathan Fillion doesn’t do on … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- October 15th

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 11th

Got another decent sized list put together here. So, let’s see who rose to the top. The answer could be very surprising. Very. Very. You know what? I’m even going to flip it around, and do it in reverse order and countdown. Tell me if you enjoy the suspense of it all a little bit more. 7) The Equalizer (CBS/Paramount Plus) English Audio Description?: Oddly, no. Strangely enough, this episode did not have audio description. The season opener did, and most episodes, if not all, have had reliable audio description. And, it’s been enough time to upload it, as I … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup: October 11th

The Too Much TV Roundup- October 8th

It’s Saturday, which usually means I got a lot knocked off. 1) Solar Opposites (Hulu) English Audio Description?: Yes When pupa starts misbehaving and turns into a bratty teenager, the opposites had to figure out what the cause of all this was. But really, the inspired choice of a real life game of Hungry Hungry Hippos was the top of this. episode Grade: A 2) The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers (Disney Plus) English Audio Description?: Yes The Ducks continue to work out at this summer training camp in episodes released in October, which seems weird timing, but whatever. We find … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- October 8th

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 1st

Today I say goodbye to a show I’m certain would make my 100 list of my favorite shows of all time. We had quite a run. only three seasons, but those three were magnificent. So, of course, right on top… 1) Locke and key (Netflix) English Audio Description Available?: Yes I’m sad now. Not just because the show emotionally manipulated me with that time shift key one more time, but because this is it. The final episode. The Lockes defeated Gideon, and the only losses were a character we knew next to nothing about (RIP Gordy) and one who needed … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- October 1st

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 30th

Heading into Halloween season, I leave September behind with a few thoughts, and some new additions to the rotation. 1) The Patient (hulu) English Audio Description Available?: Yes See how easy that was Hulu? All you needed to do to stop getting shitty scores on this show was actually add audio description so I could follow the show. in Episode 4, the tension continues to mount, as the trapped doctor tries to communicate with the next likely victim, knowing that if he can’t get a breakthrough with his serial killer patient, the guy across the hall is dead. Not only … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 30th

The Too Much TV Roundup- May 20th

Yet another great day in television. I haven’t even started to watch Heartstopper, and it has already been picked up for seasons 2 and 3. It didn’t even need my help to survive. Of course, there are dozens of shows I’ve never watched, that keep getting renewed. You can’t watch everything. 1) The Last Days Of Ptolemy Gray (Apple Plus) English Audio Description Available?: Yes third episode in, and I keep getting more invested, and more hooked in this terrific Apple limited that features an amazing performance by Samuel l jackson. If you didn’t get a chance to check it … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- May 20th

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 Roundup- May 13th

Actually, I’m trying to make sure I actually remember everything I actually watched yesterday. it was a lot, and I didn’t write anything down, because I thought my memory could sustain a 24 hour period. I think this is it. I think. 1) Better Call Saul (AMC/Netflix) English Audio Description: On Netflix I’m actually catching up still on Season 5, since Netflix and AMC in their infinite wisdom waited until right before Season 6 dropped to release Season 5 on Netflix. Frustrating, I know, but this show doesn’t run with audio description on AMC, so perhaps, I’ll just wait for … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- May 13th

the Too Much TV Roundup

You know the deal. It’s time for another top 10 shows from last week from me. I started watching a few new shows, but will they make it onto the top 10? 1) Black-ish (ABC/Hulu) English Audio Description Available?: On most episodes (from my experience). The Johnson’s bid us farewell last week, closing their door on a seven season Emmy nominated run, that launched two spinoffs. As we saw in the pilot, Dre came full circle in realizing that the strongest move he could make wasn’t to lift only his family up into an all white community, but rather to … 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

Good Sam (Pilot)

Starring: Sophia Bush and Jason Issacs. Where I Watched It: Paramount plus (though it airs on CBS) English Audio Description Available?: Yes The Plot: The Good Sam in this question is a doctor (Bush) who works at the same hospital as her father (Issacs), who is the Chief of Surgery, and the two have a contentious relationship. He’s a brilliant doctor, but she believes she is as well, and he just doesn’t see that. She’s about to leave when (this is not a spoiler) her dad is shot and lands in a coma. While he’s in a coma, she becomes … Continue reading Good Sam (Pilot)
