The Too Much TV Roundup- June 26th

I have nothing snarky to start this post today. Really. I don’t. 1) Hacks (HBo MAX) English Audio Description Available?: Yes This show is continued brilliance. This episode saw the gang at a state fair, and I don’t know which moment was funnier. Seeing Ava choke on one vitamin, or her comment about the 800 dollar pair of shoes that she knew would help get that Susan lady some serious commission. Great episode. Episode Grade: A 2) Breeders (FX/hulu) English Audio Description Available?: No I need to sit down in a room with the Emmy voters. We have to talk … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 26th

The Too Much TV Roundup- May 28th

So, this was a weird day for me. As I sit down and really think about the rankings, I realize that none of the episodes I watched were really deserving of an A grade. This might be the first day since I started doing the daily roundup that that is the case. And, the best things i did watch, didn’t have audio description. Welcome to my twilight zone. 1) Gaslit (Starz) English Audio Description Available?: No This Watergate drama continues to be compelling material. I almost gave this an A, except there are themes it picks up and drops, like … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- May 28th

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 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
