The Too Much TV Roundup- August 14th

I started a few more shows today, and sadly none of them reached the top spot. Sometimes, it takes time. 1) Only Murders In The building (Hulu) English Audio Description: Yes The winner today was everyone’s favorite gang of podcasters, who continue to try and solve the mystery of why they are being framed. but, it was the injection of some heavy hitting guest stars that sent this episode over the top, from Tina Fey’s unnecessarily cutthroat rival caster, Jane Lynch’s always welcome return as the one time stunt double, Amy Ryan’s deliciously evil killer, or Michael Rappaport’s exhausted lead … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- August 14th

The Too Much TV Roundup- August 11th

Not a busy television show watching day. But, if every day was, I would never get anything else done. 1) Locke and Key (Netflix) English Audio Description Available?: Yes I’m a huge fan of this show, and while I appreciate that Netflix is giving it a final season (unlike Raising Deon) to wrap up its storylines, it clearly was planing for more seasons than just one. This episode is extremely rushed with the episode opening up with two characters we’ve never seen before, then moving into a data dump about Duncan’s impending wedding, how we are still short a Locke, … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- August 11th

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 1st

I finished a show, though the knowledge that there won’t be a second season just made me frustrated with all those damn cliffhangers. Did it snag the top spot? 1) Breeders (FX/Hulu) English Audio Description?: No One of the few shows I ever actually make the exception for to top the list. Breeders chose to come out of left field and spend the day with Mark and his parents. As he tried to provide them with a happy day, a walk down memory lane, as their friend is in hospice, the whole thing went to shit when his mom revealed … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- August 1st

The Too Much tV Roundup- July 25th

Normally, on a Monday, i would be praising Outer Range yet again. I finished that last week, so who made it to the top of this Monday’s chart? 1) Night Sky (Amazon) English Audio Description Available?: Yes Something interesting is finally happening to the secondary storyline, as it becomes more clear that for some reason our Latinx family is here to hunt down Jude. But what really made this show work had nothing to do with the science fiction,and everything to do with the quiet work JK Simmons has been building on all season. Some absolutely heartbreaking work from him … Continue reading The Too Much tV Roundup- July 25th

The Too Much TV Roundup- July 19th

Yesterday was very weird. None of my punctuation marks were where they were supposed to be, and it was driving me insane. Today, everything is normal. I don’t know, nor do I claim to understand when the Matrix falls apart like that. Back in my seeing days, I had a bit more patience for random bullshit, but now, my tolerance for such nonsense is low. Here’s the rankings for today. 1) Breeders (FX/Hulu) English Audio Description Available?: No In Episode 6, I got the distinct feeling that we are not headed for a good place in the season finale. The … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- July 19th

The Too Much TV Roundup- July 14th Well, for those who follow my roundups (which I know, is everybody, including Obama), you might notice that I rarely score shows as low as I do movies. That’s because, I don’t watch shows I don’t like. That’s dumb. But every once in a while, either a show gets worse and then it’s the last episode before I quit, or the pilot is terrible. This was one of those days. 1) Breeders (FX) English Audio Description Available?: No Breaking a personal rule of mine, i am putting a show without audio description on … Continue reading

The Too Much TV Roundup- July 11th

Once again, my totally random assortment of television shows thrown against each other for a rather random rankings list. 1) Outer Range (Amazon) English Audio Description?: Yes There’s a reason this show managed some mentions in my best of the past year in TV on my YouTube, and it has a lot to do with the complete level of unpredictability Outer Range possesses. And it does so with an exceptional cast. in one episode, we had a son trying to kill his father, we had a very unlikely pairing of two characters that led to the kidnapping and almost death … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- July 11th

The Too Much TV Roundup- July 7th

Kind of a short list today, but it is what it is. 1) Breeders (FX/Hulu) English Audio Description: No Pretty much, this show is at the top of my :I’m going to one day figure out how to force all Emmy voters to watch this program” list. Emmy voters are worse than the Academy, because they have fewer precursor awards letting them know what movies everyone is watching. So it’s up to the individual campaigns to convince people to watch their show. And, that doesn’t happen, which is why last year, most of the cast of Ted Lasso received nominations, … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- July 7th

The Too Much TV Roundup- July 4th

I definitely watched a really nice chunk of shows. not everything was perfect, but the overall quality was solid. 1) Outer Range (Amazon) English Audio Description: Yes I had a really hard time picking the top spot because so many shows were on fire. Outer Range though, with all its twists and turns continued to amaze me. Whether it be Royal’s rather destructive treatment of Autumn, or her ultimate path toward revenge (and that phone call! Who is funding her?), to the smaller moments between a brother who made a choice thinking it was the right call, but not knowing … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- July 4th

The Too Much TV Roundup- June 30th

June is now over. How did I wrap up the month? 1) Breeders (FX/Hulu) English Audio Description Available?: No I my continued journey to get Martin Freeman an Emmy nomination for his work on Breeders, after finally working his way back into the house, he suffers a back injury. This gets him some pain meds that lead to some very interesting behavior and an honest conversation with Luke, but when they wear off, ultimately Paul heads to the doctor… and we are left with a cliffhanger. Freeman’s work on this show is consistently darkly hilarious while also having a ton … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 30th

The Too Much TV Roundup- June 29th

Just showing that it can happen. Nothing I watched yesterday is managing an A grade. Minus is as high as we go. 1) The Weakest Link (NBC/Peacock/Hulu) English Audio Description Available?: Depending On Platform. Bet you didn’t see this coming. i was laughing my ass off as somehow, the two dumbest players survived until the finale. This one guy missed the trivia question “I before E except after… what?” I was living for some of these answers. Ultimately, someone who did not deserve 40K got 40K. I loved. This episode so much. The one guy got to the finale and … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 29th

The Too Much TV Roundup- June 26th

I have nothing snarky to start this post today. Really. I don’t. 1) Hacks (HBo MAX) English Audio Description Available?: Yes This show is continued brilliance. This episode saw the gang at a state fair, and I don’t know which moment was funnier. Seeing Ava choke on one vitamin, or her comment about the 800 dollar pair of shoes that she knew would help get that Susan lady some serious commission. Great episode. Episode Grade: A 2) Breeders (FX/hulu) English Audio Description Available?: No I need to sit down in a room with the Emmy voters. We have to talk … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 26th

The Too Much TV Roundup- June 24th

Capping off the week with some nice shows, and some not so nice. 1) The Boys (Amazon) English Audio Description Available?: Yes In the 6th episode of the season, our main characters started to make bold choices. The Deep’s bold choice was to have sex with an octopus. But, A Train finally understood what it felt like to be on the receiving end of superhero nonsense that goes unchecked. Noir decides to go AWOL, right after being complimented by Homelander. Dude doesn’t like compliments I guess. Milk and Starlite team up. Kimiko can still kick ass without her powers. And, … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 24th

The Too Much TV Roundup- June 19th

Today, I put myself in the position of having to choose between some heavy hitters for the top spot. Let’s just accept that this was a great day for television, for me at least. 1) Hacks (HBO MAX) English Audio Description Available?: Yes In the 4th episode of season,Deborah finds out she’s been booked on a lesbian cruise, which causes her to need to examine her material as she is very aware that lesbians do not like her. After making the effort to have fun, Deborah starts to believe that this might be her community after all, but she still … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 19th
