The Too Much TV Roundup- May 26th

Somehow, in and around the movies, I’m still managing to knock out series. It’s a tough job, but someone’s gotta do it. Lol. 1) Better Call Saul (Netflix/AMC) English Audio Description available?: Yes in the 7th episode of Season 5, jimmy and Kim worked toward a closure on their Green Table (aka Mesa Verde) plot, which led to not only a whopper of a gimmick from Saul Goodman, but in the episode’s B-Plot, mike worked to remove Lallo from the equation without personally linking himself to the events. So many actors deserve Emmy’s from this series. Episode Grade: A 2) … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- May 26th

The Too Much TV Roundup- May 25th

Somehow around cramming all the Star Wars movies before Friday, I actually manage to squeez in a few TV shows. This was a pretty easy day in terms of ranking. 1) The Last Days of Ptolemy Gray (Apple Plus) English Audio Description Available?: Yes It’s official. I’m invested. I’m hooked. Episode 4 saw Ptolemy blowing everyone away with his lucidity, as he continues to try and use his last days to solve the murder of Reggie. I’m betting it was hilly. That kid is sketchyAF. Jackson is doing some great stuff here, but I need to also give a shoutout … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- May 25th

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

The Valet

Starring: Eugenio Derbez, Samara Weaving, Max Greenfield, Betsy Brandt, Carmen Salinas, Amauri Nolasco, and Marisol Nichols. Directed By: Richard Wong Where i Watched It: Hulu English Audio Description Available?: Yes Description Provided By: Descriptive Video Works The Plot: An actress (Weaving), who is secretly sleeping with a married man (Greenfield) and sneaking around, finds herself caught by the paparazzi when they take a photo of her with her married beau. But instead of going public about her transgressions, she pretends she’s dating the third person in the photo, the valet (Derbez). What Works: This is a Eugenio Derbez film, so … Continue reading The Valet

The Too Much TV Roundup- May 23rd

Another weird day of television where there was a clear winner for the day, and not a huge amount of TV shows logged. 1) Bridgerton (Netflix) English Audio Description Available?: Yes in the season’s sixth episode, we dealt with a wedding, some actual character development for the Queen, and a sister finally taking charge of her own destiny. I think this season is overall written better than the first, but I’m sure that the audience that showed up for all of Season 1’s sexy fun time disagrees with me on the decidedly less naked season 2. In a very crowded … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- May 23rd

The Too Much TV Roundup- May 22nd

Comparatively, considering how long this list has been in the past, this was a rather normal amount of television. At least, for me, it felt like it was. I’m sure for some people, this was still a lot. Also, oddly enough, the majority of these do not offer audio description. I spent most of the day watching Star Wars films. 1) Gaslit (Starz) English Audio Description Available?: No Even with the lack of audio description, and me being reliant upon another human to tell me what’s happening as the series progresses, I can still see that Julia Roberts is absolutely … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- May 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 20th

Yet another great day in television. I haven’t even started to watch Heartstopper, and it has already been picked up for seasons 2 and 3. It didn’t even need my help to survive. Of course, there are dozens of shows I’ve never watched, that keep getting renewed. You can’t watch everything. 1) The Last Days Of Ptolemy Gray (Apple Plus) English Audio Description Available?: Yes third episode in, and I keep getting more invested, and more hooked in this terrific Apple limited that features an amazing performance by Samuel l jackson. If you didn’t get a chance to check it … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- May 20th

The Too Much tV Roundup- May 19th

I had a fun little day with some great shows. I feel like overall Thursday’s crop was stronger than Wednesday’s. 1) Reacher (Amazon) English Audio Description Available?: Yes This show is addictive. in Episode 6, every episode has some heart pumping action, and intense sequences. Since I didn’t read the book, and it seems like no one is safe from being killed, other than Jack Reacher, I feel like anyone could die at any time. And that raises the stakes of every episode. This has been one of the most rewarding experiences from a new show I’ve had in quite … Continue reading The Too Much tV Roundup- May 19th

The Too Much TV Roundup- May 18th

Not really a banner day for television watching, though I got at least one season finale out of my way. 1) Minx (HBO MAX) English Audio Description Available?: Yes In episode 6, they are still trying desperately to save the magazine, and are doing so against some pushback, shown in the form of a somewhat cartoonish feminist group, that one of our characters is dragged to on the chance that afterward they’d meet about having her write for Minx. Instead, she gets bombarded with phrases like “all marriage is rape”, which feels like the kind of statement put in there … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- May 18th

The Too Much TV Roundup- May 17th

Welcome back to some quick rankings and reviews of the shows I’m watching, and where they are landing on my list.As always, those without audio description will be noted. 1) The Rookie (ABC/Hulu) English Audio Description Available?: Yes I love the guy that does the narration for this. I don’t know who it is because what’s listed at the very beginning sound like two corporations, and not a guy. But whoever he is, he has made this season of The Rookie so entertaining. He reads everything with a level of excitement that makes you feel like you’re watching a show … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- May 17th

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 13th

Actually, I’m trying to make sure I actually remember everything I actually watched yesterday. it was a lot, and I didn’t write anything down, because I thought my memory could sustain a 24 hour period. I think this is it. I think. 1) Better Call Saul (AMC/Netflix) English Audio Description: On Netflix I’m actually catching up still on Season 5, since Netflix and AMC in their infinite wisdom waited until right before Season 6 dropped to release Season 5 on Netflix. Frustrating, I know, but this show doesn’t run with audio description on AMC, so perhaps, I’ll just wait for … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- May 13th
