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 29th

Welcome to a shorter list yet again. Can you tell that my work is a bit busier? That’s what these shorter lists lead to. 1) House Of The Dragon (HBO/HBOMAX) English Audio Description Available?: Yes Despite a strong showing this day from… well… nothing else, Hosue of The Dragon slayed again. This is a show that is structured and written well enough to restore faith, much like Better Call Saul that Prequels are sometimes the way to go, instead of a spinoff or a sequel. I know we all wanted an Arya Stark series, but this show is still creating … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- August 29th

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 4th

Well, I squeezed some shows in today for your viewing pleasure. At least one is a limited series that now is totally done. But did it top the list? 1) Loot (Apple Plus) English Audio Description?: Yes This was actually a pretty close race with not really a clear front runner, but of the seven programs I watched, Loot’s third episode, which featured Maya Rudolph at her absolute finest doing a “Hot Ones” interview, nudges out the rest of the shows. there were some contenders, for sure, but the singular funniest moment had to be that. Episode Grade: A 2) … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- August 4th

The Too Much TV Roundup- July 30th

One of my shorter lists, but I did manage a few movies instead of a long list of shows. It’s a trade off. Makes ranking a bit easier. 1) The Orville (Hulu) English Audio Description Available?: Yes This show doesn’t have the right to be this good. Seriously. The fact that it might end on Season 3 is bonkers to me, after watching them hit consecutive home runs on the first two episodes of the season. This one reminded me a bit of Event Horizon, with this ship in the middle of nowhere with no crew on board and just … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- July 30th
