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 27th

A show that did not have audio description last week on a certain platform does this week. Did it move up in the rankings? Let’s find out. 1) The Handmaid’s Tale (Hulu) English Audio Description?: Yes The third episode of the season finds June trying to find out what purple means, Serena trying to find out if she’s done enough to earn respect in a place designed to subjugate women, Aunt Lydia pleading and apologizing to God, and a lot of other little treats. Another really powerful ending, and no matter how much I need to see Serena not survive … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 27th

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 26th a dive on my rankings this week.

1) The Terminal List (Amazon) English Audio Description?: Yes I will say, they closed out the series in fine form. That final reveal, the final name on the list, so brutal. No spoilers here, but it was enough for this show, which rarely does top the list, to earn the spot. Full of action, and a really nice cat and mouse game between our favorite reporter and a cooperating Secretary of Defense really helped put this episode over the top. Nice way to close out the show. Episode Grade: A, Series Grade: A- 2) Reservation Dogs (Hulu) English Audio Description?: … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 26th a dive on my rankings this week.

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 23rd

Sometimes I wonder if I give out too many perfect A grades to series, and I want it to be earned when the episode warrants it. So, we have only one clear winner today. 1) Harley Quinn (HBo MAX) English Audio Description?: Yes In the penultimate episode of the season (this show has been renewed already), Harley, ivy, and the gang have to team up with Batgirl and nightwing to save Gotham as Bruce accidentally triggered a zombie apocalypse. However, ivy believes that because these zombies are infused with stuff from Frank, she can control them, so she sets off … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 23rd

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 20th

Today was interesting to be sure. A brand new show, and an attempt to watch something presented in a new format. 1) Locke and Key (Netflix) English Audio Description?: Yes So, as we march onward to the series finale, Ellie led Gideon to an alive former classmate, someone who was very nice back in high school days, and really wanted to be a part of their group, but they never let him in on the secret. They actually went in one time to remove a memory from his head, and it was that point that they hid the key. But, … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 20th

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 19th

It was a nice day. I felt like some shows read my blog and addressed issues I was having, while others did not. i know, that’s crazy, but it feels nice to feel like you’ve been heard. Speaking of, is Disney Plus really going to let their strong commitment to audio description die with Dancing With The Stars? I thought that might be the plus side of it moving to Disney Plus, but alas, as of this writing, it has no audio description. I’m not reviewing it, as I only watched it long enough to realize there was no audio … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 19th

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 17th (Special Edition)

So, what in the hell could possibly make this list a special edition? You will find out right away. While I’m not sure that technically speaking the top show was the best thing I watched yesterday, there’s a very special reason it sits there. 1) Tales Of The Walking Dead (AMC Plus) English Audio Description: Yes! you read that part right. English. Audio. Description. AMC Plus. That’s a brand new offering for us blind folk, opening up another door, and another choice to those who are interested in the family of content currently offered on AMC Plus (which includes the … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 17th (Special Edition)

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 16th

I’m quite conflicted today, as many of these shows are quite close in the lineup. 1) Solar Opposites (Hulu) English Audio Description?: Yes In a world where a lot of the shows I watched today tried their hands at some different tricks, the 8th episode of Solar Opposites was wildly on brand, featuring dueling storylines between the people in the wall trying to escape, but essentially running into Morlock versions of themselves, while the main family enter this trippy reality where people are being replaced, and there’s a Hall of Betrayal. Is eating someone’s taki’s really anywhere near the level … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 16th

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 14th

A show returned, and I finished one. So, it’s like one goes out, and another comes in. 1) Blackbird (Apple Plus) English Audio Description?: Yes There are scenes in this final episode that would have caused me to hand Taron Edgerton and Paul Walterhouser not just Emmy awards, but also Oscars. They are literal fire in the final episode, with each of them at the pinnacle of their acting performances. Walterhouser has given us a glimpse of this type of capability before, but never to this level, and Edgerton seemed more interested in pumping out stuff like that abysmal Robin … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 14th

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 12th

Well, how about those Emmy’s? Did your favorite win? With hundreds of scripted programs on the air, I’m going to guess probably not for many of you. Most of your favorite shows likely won’t even be nominated ever. But hey, at least they are predictable. 1) Love, Victor (Hulu/ Disney plus) English Audio Description?: Yes A perfect storm happened that allowed the series finale of Love Victor to rise to the top. House Of The Dragon produced its worst episode yet, and the other contenders just didn’t hit all the right notes. Love Victor figured out that what its audience … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 12th

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 10th

A couple of new shows today. Just shaking up the rankings a bit. 1) Uncoupled (Netflix) English Audio Description?: Yes I don’t know if this can sustain. I don’t have those answers after just watching the pilot. But I am sure, this show has a terrific pilot, and i was super drawn into Neil Patrick Harris’s character, getting a glimpse of what I’m sure will be a well rounded supporting cast, all of them seeming to develop their own personalities right away. But the first episode, that dealt with the title of the show, and how Colin needed to find … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 10th

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 9th

So, my top spot today was realy tough. No shade on the second place finisher, it’s jsut that number one gave me that My God moment. Those are so rare. 1) Blackbird (Apple Plus) English Audio Description Available?: Yes In what happens to be a matchup of excellent acting, superb writing, and audio description that is absolutely on point, jimmy got more than he bargained for. He got a flat out confession from Larry. The whole thing. Every detail, And, his mission is still to remain Larry’s friend, so he had to sit there and listen as Larry described heartlessly … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 9th

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 7th

Five shows enter the thunder dome. One comes out on top. one, honestly, really came out on top and if there isn’t another season I’m gonna cry. 1) The Orville (Hulu/Disney plus) English Audio Description?: Yes The 8th episode of the season was definitely a bit long, but so rewarding. A routine trip to Machlan to view the women’s colony to make sure they were living up to their agreement gave Bortis’s daughter the opportunity to meet other females, including the one brave enough to reveal herself and speak on behalf of her when she was just a baby. Things … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 7th

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 6th

I managed some television today, so the rankings won’t be so boring for the 3 of you I’m sure read this post. It’s all for you. One love. 1) The Terminal List (Amazon) English Audio Description?: Yes Well, spoilers I guess. But in Episode 5, which is not the finale, Reese managed to go after the guy responsible for his brain tumor. And he did it. In the 5th episode. That kind of felt like the big boss at the end, but a well timed car bomb, and a little sidewalk shootout took care of his guards and out King … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 6th

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 3rd

I watched a lot of great television this day. So, don’t be surprised by my top pick, because it was really freaking hard. 1) Harley Quinn (HBo MAX) English Audio Description?: Yes The 6th episode of the season, essentially a bottle episode centered around the Joker, where he’s raising a family, sitcom style, and has an adopted son named Benecio that he really wants to feel more pride in the heritage of his name and his culture, and tries to fight an entitled PTA mom to get his son a spot on a cultural exchange trip. Seriously. This is the … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 3rd
