The Too Much TV Roundup- July 22nd

A new day brought some new shows to my list of currently watching programming. but were they any good, and did they make the top spot? 1( Rutherford Falls (Peacock) English Audio Description Available?: Yes When we last left this show, it looked like the town was about to turn into a living breathing tourist trap, with Nathan finding out he’s not really a Rutherford and driving off to parts unknown. It seems like he’s actually just been living in the attic “working on himself”, until he announces his reentry into society… at someone else’s birthday party. Same Nathan, new … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- July 22nd

The Too much TV Roundup- July 15th

I prioritized some film watching today over cramming TV shows, so this list is shorter than usual. 1) Shining Girls (Apple Plus) English Audio Description: Yes Every once in a while, a show comes along that isn’t just good in that way that qualifies it for a top spot, or makes me feel good because it’s a returning favorite. No, it comes out of nowhere, from a title I had zero expectations for, and that is what Shining Girls gives me every week. Astounding. Beautiful. Scary. Weird. Provocative. It’s everything every week. This has to be one of the oddest … Continue reading The Too much TV Roundup- July 15th

The Too Much TV Roundup- July 9th

Welcome back to the roundup. Not a big list of shows for the day, but a pretty solid one. 1) Shining Girls (Apple Plus) English Audio Description: Yes I vote this series most likely to make you go “WTF” and make your skin crawl in the same episode. A fascinating piece of work from Apple, really unlike anything else on right now. It would be easy to write this off as a standard crime solving TV series, but Kirby breaking with reality every episode really does put a twist on things. And, the narration does a great job of following … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- July 9th

The Too Much TV Roundup- July 3rd

Do you ever feel like yesterday was so far away and you’re struggling to remember what you did? One of those mornings, I guess. I started a few shows yesterday. How did they stack up? 1) Only Murders In The Building (Hulu) English Audio Description Available?: Yes The season premiere really set out to remind us that this show is very aware of itself, becoming quite meta. How does one continue into a second season of a podcast like this show? What if Amy Schumer wanted to adapt your story in an 8-10 episode limited series? What if you became … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- July 3rd

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- June 19th

Today, I put myself in the position of having to choose between some heavy hitters for the top spot. Let’s just accept that this was a great day for television, for me at least. 1) Hacks (HBO MAX) English Audio Description Available?: Yes In the 4th episode of season,Deborah finds out she’s been booked on a lesbian cruise, which causes her to need to examine her material as she is very aware that lesbians do not like her. After making the effort to have fun, Deborah starts to believe that this might be her community after all, but she still … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 19th
