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 17th

Seven shows entered the fray. only one gets to reach the top. Many deserve it. Who will get it? It’s probably the obvious choice. 7) The Great North (FOX/Hulu) English Audio Description: No It’s actually a pretty good sign that television was good when one of my consistent stalwarts ends up on the bottom. While this weeks episode about the family slowly losing their minds during an ice storm paid heavy homage to A Few Good Men, while also putting a heavy focus on a film I love as well, Enough Said, it was just an average episode of The … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- October 17th

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 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 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 28th

Since I live in the path of hurricane Ian, and I don’t know my power/wifi status tomorrow, you’re getting this early. This is actually what I watched today, but would normally write about on Thursday. 1) The Rookie (ABC/Hulu) English Audio Description Available?: Yes first of all, not only is the Rookie one of the best described shows on TV (definitely network TV), but it was so nice to see the whole gang together again, and in a thrilling Season premiere that saw one recurring character with their life very much in the balance. So glad to have this show … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 28th

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 22nd

I got through several shows today, mostly because they were all half hour shows. Which one landed on top? 1) Paper Girls (Amazon) English Audio Description?: Yes That’s right.A cancelled and abandoned Amazon show topped the list today, as we focused a lot on Mac’s relationship with her brother Dylan, while also showing Ellen how the grown up version of herself had grown so far apart from her sister. All of this while there is a giant freaking robot in the barn out back. And then, our terminator seems to be ever so close to snatching Mac, before KJ saves … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 22nd

The Too Much TV Roundup- May 26th

Somehow, in and around the movies, I’m still managing to knock out series. It’s a tough job, but someone’s gotta do it. Lol. 1) Better Call Saul (Netflix/AMC) English Audio Description available?: Yes in the 7th episode of Season 5, jimmy and Kim worked toward a closure on their Green Table (aka Mesa Verde) plot, which led to not only a whopper of a gimmick from Saul Goodman, but in the episode’s B-Plot, mike worked to remove Lallo from the equation without personally linking himself to the events. So many actors deserve Emmy’s from this series. Episode Grade: A 2) … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- May 26th

The Too Much TV Roundup- May 25th

Somehow around cramming all the Star Wars movies before Friday, I actually manage to squeez in a few TV shows. This was a pretty easy day in terms of ranking. 1) The Last Days of Ptolemy Gray (Apple Plus) English Audio Description Available?: Yes It’s official. I’m invested. I’m hooked. Episode 4 saw Ptolemy blowing everyone away with his lucidity, as he continues to try and use his last days to solve the murder of Reggie. I’m betting it was hilly. That kid is sketchyAF. Jackson is doing some great stuff here, but I need to also give a shoutout … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- May 25th

The Too Much tV Roundup- May 19th

I had a fun little day with some great shows. I feel like overall Thursday’s crop was stronger than Wednesday’s. 1) Reacher (Amazon) English Audio Description Available?: Yes This show is addictive. in Episode 6, every episode has some heart pumping action, and intense sequences. Since I didn’t read the book, and it seems like no one is safe from being killed, other than Jack Reacher, I feel like anyone could die at any time. And that raises the stakes of every episode. This has been one of the most rewarding experiences from a new show I’ve had in quite … Continue reading The Too Much tV Roundup- May 19th

The Too Much TV Roundup- May 18th

Not really a banner day for television watching, though I got at least one season finale out of my way. 1) Minx (HBO MAX) English Audio Description Available?: Yes In episode 6, they are still trying desperately to save the magazine, and are doing so against some pushback, shown in the form of a somewhat cartoonish feminist group, that one of our characters is dragged to on the chance that afterward they’d meet about having her write for Minx. Instead, she gets bombarded with phrases like “all marriage is rape”, which feels like the kind of statement put in there … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- May 18th

The Too Much TV Roundup- May 17th

Welcome back to some quick rankings and reviews of the shows I’m watching, and where they are landing on my list.As always, those without audio description will be noted. 1) The Rookie (ABC/Hulu) English Audio Description Available?: Yes I love the guy that does the narration for this. I don’t know who it is because what’s listed at the very beginning sound like two corporations, and not a guy. But whoever he is, he has made this season of The Rookie so entertaining. He reads everything with a level of excitement that makes you feel like you’re watching a show … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- May 17th

The Too Much tV Roundup- May 14th

This felt like a really good day full of some good television, for the most part.Trying to figure out who got the top spot was a big challenge this day. 1) Reacher (amazon) English Audio Description Available?: Yes Look, I’m behind. I know. I didn’t rush on Reacher since it got a second season renewal almost immediately. So this was Episode 5 for me, and I seem to keep getting surprised by this show. The stakes keep changing, the bar keeps getting reset, and Reacher is by far one of the best new shows I’ve seen in a long time. … Continue reading The Too Much tV Roundup- May 14th

The Too Much TV Roundup- May 11th

I’m starting to enjoy this new format, as it gives me more of an opportunity to have collected thoughts on what I just watched the previous day. Time to reveal just how much television I actually watch. 1) Mr Mayor (NBC/Peacock/Hulu) English Audio Description Available?: Depending on the platform. This is why I like the new format, because it gives me an opportunity to talk about a show I might not have otherwise singled out. But the 9th episode of this shows 2nd Season was hilarious. Spending so much time on jokes about how young people don’t know what mail … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- May 11th

The Too Much TV Roundup: Tuesday May 10th

Trying a new thing with my TV Roundups, so i can talk about more shows. It’s becoming harder to do just a top 10, and this is a broader look at everything I watch. This will slowly become what I want it to be. i did watch a movie yesterday (review not yet published), so that won’t be listed, but may have brought down the amount of TV shows. 1) New Amsterdam (NBC/Peacock/Hulu) English Audio Description Available?: Depends on the platform. So, I watched the first of the two new episodes this week, and I’m really hating that this season … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup: Tuesday May 10th
