The Too Much TV Roundup- October 9th

A lot of shows fighting for the top. only one can have it. It was a though fight this week. 1) The Sandman (Netflix) English Audio Description Available?: Yes The Sandman wraps officially its 1st season (Yes, I’m still putting positive energy out into the world), and with a finale that wrapped everything up in fine form, I can see where we’ve been and the ride I enjoyed, but also see the groundwork laid for next season.Hopefully Netflix steps up and gives this a shot. Episode Grade: A, Season 1 (without the bonus episode): A- 2) The Good Fight (Paramount … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- October 9th

The Too Much TV Roundup- July 1st

Well, Netflix decided today was the day for us to watch some Stranger Things. Episode 8 was an hour and a half, and episode nine is roughly two and a half hours when i tackle that. 1) The Boys (Amazon) English Audio Description Available?: Yes in a day that put The Boys versus Stranger Things, The Boys won handily. I love both shows, but the 7th episode of The Boys, much like every other episode this season, found a new way to inject something we hadn’t previously seen. It feels like The Boys showrunners are consistently being dared to do … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- July 1st

The Too Much TV Roundup- June 17th

It’s time to make the donuts. 1) The Boys (Amazon) English Audio Description Available?: Yes Where to begin? The brilliant cameos by Paul Reiser and Seth Rogen? How about that stepdad that is pro-Homelander trying to have some conversation with Milk about how awesome Homelander is. Or that musical number? or Mave and Butcher? There’s really no way around it, this show never bores me. And it seems to find a new way to be outlandish every time out. Episode Grade: A 2) Barry (HBO/HBO MAX) English Audio Description Available?: Yes After the shock of trying to remember what the … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 17th

The Too Much TV Roundup- June 10th

Time to make the donuts. 1) Ozark (Netflix) English Audio Description Available?: Yes In the 9th episode of the final season, Ruth is still giving zero fucks. She does manage to put herself together to attend the funeral with Three. Meanwhile, Grandpa is in town, and he’s looking for Ben. This was a great episode full of little moments and exchanges that truly created something special. For example, Jason Bateman’s realization at the end of the episode that he can’t even trust his own wife to tell him the truth. It was that resigned acceptance that sold me on the … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 10th

The Too Much TV Roundup- June 4th

An interesting day, because The Boys are back in town! 1) The Boys (Amazon) English Audio Description Available?: Yes The Boys have returned, and boy does this show up the ante almost right away on “you can’t do that on television, oh I guess you can.” I can honestly say I’ve never experienced a scene where a tiny superhero shrinks himself so he can climb into the urethra of a penis and try to bring a man pleasure from inside the partner’s body. That was a new one. Big reveals. Surprises. And as always, The Boys is aiming to be … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 4th

The Too Much TV Roundup- January 2nd

A day where I watched a lot of TV, but surprisingly none of it reached the top grade level. And at least one show has totally lost my interest. 1) Stranger Things (Netflix) English Audio Description?: Yes I don’t know what it says that the 3rd episode of the season, the slowest so far, and my least favorite, still managed to rank at the top of all the episodes. I watched a very odd batch of TV, most of it let me down in some way. That ending though. All I can say is, don’t you fucking dare. Don’t you … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- January 2nd

The Too Much TV Roundup- May 30th

Lots of random TV shows were consumed on Memorial Day. Let’s see where they finally stacked up. 1) Bridgerton (Netflix) English Audio Description: Yes In the 7th episode, shit starts getting real. The fallout from the lack of the wedding starts to plague the families involved, meanwhile the Queen has set her sights on her target, which prompts a response from Lady Whistledown. But that final moment, where Anthony sees Kate in what could be a deadly accident (let’s face it, medical science in this time period is not on her side), put me on a cliffhanger for what I … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- May 30th

The Too Much TV Roundup- May 29th

Surprisingly very little television shows were had. You know, i do other things, right? Here’s a quick rundown of what I thought was the tops. I think that’s an old timey phrase. 1) The Offer (Paramount Plus) English Audio Description Available?: Yes I finally started this limited series about the creation of The Godfather film, and I’m a sucker for movies about movies. That’s probably why I was so surprised when Mank didn’t work for me, because this is a pretty solid sub-genre to throw at me. There is a rather excellent Robert Evans impersonation in here, but really most … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- May 29th

The Too Much TV Roundup- May 22nd

Comparatively, considering how long this list has been in the past, this was a rather normal amount of television. At least, for me, it felt like it was. I’m sure for some people, this was still a lot. Also, oddly enough, the majority of these do not offer audio description. I spent most of the day watching Star Wars films. 1) Gaslit (Starz) English Audio Description Available?: No Even with the lack of audio description, and me being reliant upon another human to tell me what’s happening as the series progresses, I can still see that Julia Roberts is absolutely … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- May 22nd
