The Too Much TV Roundup: October 11th

Got another decent sized list put together here. So, let’s see who rose to the top. The answer could be very surprising. Very. Very. You know what? I’m even going to flip it around, and do it in reverse order and countdown. Tell me if you enjoy the suspense of it all a little bit more. 7) The Equalizer (CBS/Paramount Plus) English Audio Description?: Oddly, no. Strangely enough, this episode did not have audio description. The season opener did, and most episodes, if not all, have had reliable audio description. And, it’s been enough time to upload it, as I … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup: October 11th

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 27th

A show that did not have audio description last week on a certain platform does this week. Did it move up in the rankings? Let’s find out. 1) The Handmaid’s Tale (Hulu) English Audio Description?: Yes The third episode of the season finds June trying to find out what purple means, Serena trying to find out if she’s done enough to earn respect in a place designed to subjugate women, Aunt Lydia pleading and apologizing to God, and a lot of other little treats. Another really powerful ending, and no matter how much I need to see Serena not survive … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 27th

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 12th

Well, how about those Emmy’s? Did your favorite win? With hundreds of scripted programs on the air, I’m going to guess probably not for many of you. Most of your favorite shows likely won’t even be nominated ever. But hey, at least they are predictable. 1) Love, Victor (Hulu/ Disney plus) English Audio Description?: Yes A perfect storm happened that allowed the series finale of Love Victor to rise to the top. House Of The Dragon produced its worst episode yet, and the other contenders just didn’t hit all the right notes. Love Victor figured out that what its audience … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 12th

The Too Much TV Roundup- August 22nd

i squeezed some shit in today just for you. Yes, you. You are special. 1) House Of The Dragon (HBo/HBO MAX) English Audio Description?: Yes I could do with a dial back on the campaign for this show, as I thought the pilot spoke for itself. It featured a great way to introduce us to characters we don’t know, in a world we are familiar with, make us care about them, show us who the major players are, and give us that Game of Thrones dread where anyone can die at anytime. Perfectly executed with lots of heart and tons … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- August 22nd

The Too Much TV Roundup- August 15th

I can’t believe it’s already the halfway point of August. With some shows finished last week, the rankings should start shaking up a bit. We’ve got a new first timer on top. 1) The Sandman (Netflix) English Audio Description?: Yes I didn’t think that the pilot did enough to explore the universe, and just exactly who Dream was. It felt, in retrospect, like a preface, and the story starts in Episode 2. There’s a tremendous shift in focus, and Dreams really does take center stage in his own story. The audio description here is working overtime, as almost nothing in … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- August 15th

The Too Much TV Roundup- August 8th

The start of a new week, and Amazon is being mean and reminding me there was still one more episode of Night Sky, after I finished it last week and it temporarily disappeared from my queue. I now see that Undone is still there, after going away, which perplexes me because I it really do not know where that story would have gone after that ending. That was a true finale ending if there ever was one. What the hell, Amazon? Stop temporarily disappearing shit from my queue. This wasn’t a problem before the redesign. 1) Night Sky (Amazon) English … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- August 8th

The Too Much TV Roundup- August 1st

I finished a show, though the knowledge that there won’t be a second season just made me frustrated with all those damn cliffhangers. Did it snag the top spot? 1) Breeders (FX/Hulu) English Audio Description?: No One of the few shows I ever actually make the exception for to top the list. Breeders chose to come out of left field and spend the day with Mark and his parents. As he tried to provide them with a happy day, a walk down memory lane, as their friend is in hospice, the whole thing went to shit when his mom revealed … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- August 1st

The Too Much tV Roundup- July 25th

Normally, on a Monday, i would be praising Outer Range yet again. I finished that last week, so who made it to the top of this Monday’s chart? 1) Night Sky (Amazon) English Audio Description Available?: Yes Something interesting is finally happening to the secondary storyline, as it becomes more clear that for some reason our Latinx family is here to hunt down Jude. But what really made this show work had nothing to do with the science fiction,and everything to do with the quiet work JK Simmons has been building on all season. Some absolutely heartbreaking work from him … Continue reading The Too Much tV Roundup- July 25th

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

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 6th

Gonna stop clogging up these lists with random reruns of old shows. Keeping it fresh, or at least relatively fresh. No one cares where I’m at in Cheers. Although, everybody does know my name there. 1) Bridgerton (Netflix) English Audio Description Available?: Yes I don’t know what this means for fans of Bridgerton that latched on during Season 1, but I wasn’t a huge fan of the first season. But, I really enjoyed season 2, and how they changed Anthony into a character we could actually root for, even after all his bullshit in Season 1. Not to mention, Kate … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 6th

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 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- 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
