The Too Much TV Roundup- October 21st

My shortest list of the week so far, but I did manage a movie, and a live theatre event. So, that’s where my time went. 5) Maggie (Hulu) English Audio Description?: Yes I really thought Hulu was going 10 episodes on this like they usually do, so I was surprised to see we are plowing past episode 10. It’s been a few months, and I don’t know if Hulu will stick with Maggie. They have a habit of cancelling sitcoms, or killing them on their second season (Dollface/Woke). So an episode about loss might be preparing us for inevitable cancellation. … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- October 21st

The Too Much TV Roundup- October 13th

Still keeping up with reverse format, and since I basically liked everything I watched yesterday, this one was a really hard list to put together. 8) The Connors (ABC/Hulu) English Audio Description?: Yes Well, audio description was back. Ultimately, this ended up drawing the short straw for three reasons. First, the somewhat unmomentus return of Louise (Katey Sagal), the return of Mary as a character even though DJ was let go earlier this year, meaning she no longer has a father, but they’ll make a joke about how little they’ve seen her. The better question is, why did you fire … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- October 13th

The Too Much TV Roundup- October 7th

Just another day sliding through episodes of TV shows. 1) The Rings Of power (Amazon) English Audio Description?: Yes in the 6th episode, we focused primarily on one topic, which meant we didn’t even visit certain storylines. The refugees were about to go into battle with the orcs, who are being led by an Elf that has felt the dark side. It’s a pretty action packed hour of television, that eventually results in the merging of two groups, meaning less hopping around in the future. Hopefully. Episode Grade: A 2) Five Days At Memorial (Apple Plus) English Audio Description?: Yes … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- October 7th

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 30th

Heading into Halloween season, I leave September behind with a few thoughts, and some new additions to the rotation. 1) The Patient (hulu) English Audio Description Available?: Yes See how easy that was Hulu? All you needed to do to stop getting shitty scores on this show was actually add audio description so I could follow the show. in Episode 4, the tension continues to mount, as the trapped doctor tries to communicate with the next likely victim, knowing that if he can’t get a breakthrough with his serial killer patient, the guy across the hall is dead. Not only … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 30th

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 22nd

I got through several shows today, mostly because they were all half hour shows. Which one landed on top? 1) Paper Girls (Amazon) English Audio Description?: Yes That’s right.A cancelled and abandoned Amazon show topped the list today, as we focused a lot on Mac’s relationship with her brother Dylan, while also showing Ellen how the grown up version of herself had grown so far apart from her sister. All of this while there is a giant freaking robot in the barn out back. And then, our terminator seems to be ever so close to snatching Mac, before KJ saves … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 22nd

The Too Much TV Roundup- May 21st

Yesterday, I watched quite a bit of non-described programming with my mom, who tries her best to let me know what’s happening. But, there’s a very small overlap in the Venn Diagram of shows we both enjoy. Here are my rankings from yesterday. 1) Hacks (HBO MAX) English Audio Description Available?: Yes Kicking off Season 2 officially, this series is just as hilarious as ever, and jean smart is living the role of her lifetime. Hopefully, this show wil stay on as long as the writing is good. Episode Grade: A 2) The Marvelous Ms Maisel (Amazon) English Audio Description … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- May 21st

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
