Escape From Kabul

Where I Watched It: HBo MAX English Audio Description?: Yes I feel like the pullout of the troops from Afghanistan is going to end up in more films and tv shows, but kicking this all off is Escape From Kabul. If you think I’m wrong, remind yourself that last year, we had the documentary The Resuce, about the effort to save the boys soccer team from a flooded cave in Thailand. This year, we’ve had a film adaptation directed by Ron Howard, and then a Netflix limited series Thai Cave Rescue. All about in the span of a year. Just … Continue reading Escape From Kabul

The Too Much TV Roundup- June 13th

I did use a chunk of my day to watch the January 6th hearings, so less actual TV was watched. Though, this would still seem like a lot of shows to a normal person anyway. 1) Woke (Hulu) English Audio Description Available?: Yes Any misgivings I may have had with Woke moving in a slightly different direction for its second season were wiped out in the last two episodes, which culminated in The project finally being able to distance itself from the 5G sneakers, and course correcting by swapping out all the shoes for the uh-housed population. The season wrapped … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 13th

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- 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 24th

Yesterday was definitely a much better day in terms of the quality of programming watched. Coming up with who gets the top spot was actually a challenge. 1) Julia (HBOMAX) English Audio Description Available: Yes Ultimately, I chose Julia, whose first season was a pleasant surprise on many levels. And since this was the season finale, and the other contenders for the top spot were not quite there yet, I landed on Julia, which will be returning for a second season. Sarah Lancashire needs to be a serious contender for a nomination this year, as well as David Hyde Pierce … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- May 24th

Old

Starring: Gael Garcia Bernal, Vicky Krieps, Rufus Sewell, Alex Wolff, Thomasin McKenzie, and Embeth Davidtz. Directed By: M Night Shyamalan Where i Watched It: HBO MAX English Audio Description Available?: Yes Description Provided By: The Media Acccess Group Narrated By: Roy Samuelson The Plot: On a remote beach, a group of random strangers have all won a random trip to a swanky resort, where a quick day trip to an isolated part of the island leaves them trapped in a place where time moves at its own speed, and these strangers start aging rapidly. Can they escape before it’s too … Continue reading Old

The Too Much TV Roundup- May 16th

Despite actually having to work at my job yesterday (Yes, i still have one of those), I still managed to knock out a fair amount of programming. Who earned the top spot from this random assortment? 1) Bridgerton (Netflix) English Audio Description Available?: Yes You know, i never quite commend Bridgerton for all the great audio description, but this is top notch. Lots of comments about heaving bosoms, which when you think about how many watch this program for the escapist romantic entanglements, makes a certain kind of description really appropriate. Plus, with such a wide ensemble, I somehow never … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- May 16th

The Too Much TV Roundup- May 15th

I’m about to reveal that I’ve been catching up on some shows. I always admit I’m a bit behind… but one of these shows started back in November. 1) The Walking Dead (AMC) English Audio Description Available?: No This show, now in its 11th and final season, is one of my favorite shows of all time. For the time I’ve been blind, which has been for a handful of seasons now, I have to go out of my way to navigate a way to watch this show. I used to watch this show with a group of friends on XBOX, … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- May 15th

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 12th

I did squeez in a movie in and around all of these TV shows. On a side note, yesterday was a brutal red wedding for TV shows (and decisions still need to be made by ABC and fOX). CBS has said goodbye to Magnum PI, The United States Of Al, Be Positive, How We Roll, and Good Sam. (If I could save one of those five, it would be The United States of Al, though CBS is cutting back on comedies altogether, ordering no new sitcoms, and returning next year with just the four returnees). NBC cancelled The Endgame, Mr … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- May 12th

The Too Much TV- Monday May 9th

Because it’s becoming a bit insane to try and track all of the television I watch, and come up with a list of 10 shows, here’s everything I watched yesterday, ranked in order of best to worst, or favorite to least favorite. You now get the whole picture. 1) Severance (Apple Plus) English Audio Description Available?: Yes So, I had mentioned the last time I listed this show, I was one episode from the finale. Now it’s done, it’s behind me, and my mind in blown. I can’t wait for Season 2. This show is highly addictive, and gets better … Continue reading The Too Much TV- Monday May 9th

The Too Much TV Roundup

It’s time once again for the ten shows I watched last week that made me think one way or the other. As a reminder, I don’t binge watch, so I may be a bit behind on some streaming shows. Not all shows will have audio description either, but I will be denoting what does. Secondary note: The Peacock app is crap and I can barely get it to work, let alone activate audio description, so everything I watch on there is without audio description. Maybe someday… Without further adieu… 1) Murderville (Netflix) English Audio Description?: Yes Yes, it took me … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup
