The Too Much TV Roundup- June 21st

Since starting doing this daily instead of weekly, i think I’ve always managed at least 5 shows. These January 6th hearings, plus trying to watch a movie everyday is throwing my rhythm off. And, you know, I don’t actually sit in front of a TV all day. 1) The Staircase (HBOMAX) English Audio Description Available?: Yes I was impressed pretty much right out of the gate with this HBO Limited series. No, I didn’t watch the Netflix doc. But, Colin Firth doesn’t usually, if ever, drop his accent, so hearing him pull off an American accent was interesting in itself. … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 21st

The Too Much TV Roundup- June 20th

A bit of a mixed bag today. Definitely a wider range of quality than on Sunday. 1) Outer Range (amazon) English Audio Description Available?: Yes Things really heated up in this episode. The interim sSheriff showed she’s a lot smarter than people give her credit for, Royal threatened the land commissioner who clearly did not feel threatened, and someone else now knows about the black hole. That was definitely a way to end that episode. I thought Will Payton was going into the hole, but turns out… well I’ll find out next week. This is what TV watching should be. … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 20th

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

The Too Much TV Roundup- June 18th

I definitely watched too much TV on a rainy Saturday. 1) Gaslit (Starz) English Audio Description Available?: No I hate to put. Shows that don’t have audio description on top, but there was no denying the penultimate hour of Gaslit, which should serve as a For Your Consideration reel for the series two leads, Julia Roberts and Sean Penn, whose marriage finally comes to a screeching halt as secrets are revealed, and things are said that can’t be unsaid. Robert’s performance in this series is brilliance, but Penn brings a new raging fire to Mitchell, attacking for dominance. He’s scary … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 18th

This remake … Continue reading Father Of The Bride (2022)

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 16th

Today, once again a large chunk of my day was taken up by non-TV shows. There was a hearing, and i managed two movies. So this feels like a lower count of TV shows than usual, which makes it easier for the winner. 1) Ozark (Netflix) English Audio Description Available?: Yes In the 10th episode of the final season, Marty spent most of the episode trying to get a guy to convince to something we’re al pretty sure he didn’t do. Meanwhile, the Julia Garner vs Laura Linney face off is getting perfect as Ruth actually managed to outsmart her … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 16th

The Too Much TV Roundup- June 14th

All of this, plus work, and I managed to squeez in a movie. Time management, y’all. That’s the way to do it. Finished off another show, and kind of finished off another. 1) Stranger Things (Netflix) English Audio Description Available?: Yes The last new episode for a few weeks. I loved how this episode played out, because I felt like it was trying me. At first, I was like, will Eleven ever get out of this fucking training center? Then, I saw what they were doing, and I realized we needed to wait for this moment. Of course, I recognized … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 14th

The Card Counter

Starring: Oscar Issac, Tiffany Haddish, Tye Sheridan, and Willem Dafoe. Directed By: Paul Schrader Where i Watched It: HBO MAX English Audio Description Available?: Yes Description Provided By: Media Access Group Narrated By: Adrienne Barbeaux The Plot: I mean, obviously this is a poker drama about a card counter, right? No. This is a story about a man (Issac), a former US soldier who worked at Guantanamo Bay, and under the direction and leadership of his superior (Dafoe), tortured the individuals kept there. When the human rights violations came to light, he ends up being one of the easy targets … Continue reading The Card Counter

The Too Much TV Roundup- June 11th

I’m too intimidated by Homelander to rank these shows any other way. 1) The Boys (Amazon) English Audio Description Available?: Yes In the fourth episode, the stakes are raised. Homelander is becoming the biggest problem he’s been since the show started, making him an obvious choice for a final battle at the end of the season. Maybe Homelander won’t make it out of Season 3. But if he has to go, what could possibly replace him? Episode Grade: A 2) Roar (Apple Plus) English Audio Description Available?: Yes In the second outing, which dealt with memory loss, what could have … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 11th

The Too Much TV Roundup- June 9th

Well, this day was very different. I have an idea of how I want to rank certain programs, but there are two that I will not be ranking. The first, being the January 6th hearing that aired across most major networks. The second, will be explained below. Before we get to the rankings: Queer As Folk (Peacock) English Audio Description Available?: Yes In just a few days, as a resident of Orlando, the city beautiful will be commemorating the anniversary of the mass shooting at the Pulse nightclub that took the lives of 49 individuals, almost all LGBT, who showed … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 9th

The Too Much TV Roundup- June 6th

Gonna stop clogging up these lists with random reruns of old shows. Keeping it fresh, or at least relatively fresh. No one cares where I’m at in Cheers. Although, everybody does know my name there. 1) Bridgerton (Netflix) English Audio Description Available?: Yes I don’t know what this means for fans of Bridgerton that latched on during Season 1, but I wasn’t a huge fan of the first season. But, I really enjoyed season 2, and how they changed Anthony into a character we could actually root for, even after all his bullshit in Season 1. Not to mention, Kate … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 6th

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- June 1st

After having a day where I watched so many amazing shows, I followed it up with a day with so many really close to amazing shows. Not quite the same thing, but not every episode is created equal. 1) Woke (Hulu) English Audio Description: Yes Yeah, I didn’t expect Woke would ever be topping my daily watchlist either. But, after watching an episode where Keef, still reeling from being attacked for his lineage, hires a new publicist who has big dreams, including having Keef use his own organization to give himself an award for black excellence. So, Keef is giving … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 1st
