Where I Watched It: Peacock English Audio Description Available?: Yes Time traveling comedies. We’ve seen a lot of them. None of them have quite been MeetCute, which demands quite a lot from its audience in order to get to the romcom angle if you ever have a hope of accepting your traditional romcom ending. Watching this film all the way through reminded me of back in the day my feelings on The Break up, that long forgotten Jennifer Aniston/Vince Vaughn romcom that somewhat deconstructed the genre, and ended on a sour note. Back then, I hated it. I disliked it … Continue reading MeetCute

The Too Much TV Roundup- July 28th

A solid day of television, even if most of it was just so-so, and some new shows start to make their appearance in my rotation. 1) Undone (Amazon) English Audio Description?: Yes Just as Amazon dropped the cancellation hammer on The Wilds (which i gave up on during its first season), I’m here to champion another one of their shows (which didn’t stop them from cancelling night Sky).

The Too Much TV Roundup- June 20th

A bit of a mixed bag today. Definitely a wider range of quality than on Sunday. 1) Outer Range (amazon) English Audio Description Available?: Yes Things really heated up in this episode. The interim sSheriff showed she’s a lot smarter than people give her credit for, Royal threatened the land commissioner who clearly did not feel threatened, and someone else now knows about the black hole. That was definitely a way to end that episode. I thought Will Payton was going into the hole, but turns out… well I’ll find out next week. This is what TV watching should be. … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 20th
