The Too Much TV Roundup- July 14th Well, for those who follow my roundups (which I know, is everybody, including Obama), you might notice that I rarely score shows as low as I do movies. That’s because, I don’t watch shows I don’t like. That’s dumb. But every once in a while, either a show gets worse and then it’s the last episode before I quit, or the pilot is terrible. This was one of those days. 1) Breeders (FX) English Audio Description Available?: No Breaking a personal rule of mine, i am putting a show without audio description on … Continue reading

The Too Much TV Roundup- June 30th

June is now over. How did I wrap up the month? 1) Breeders (FX/Hulu) English Audio Description Available?: No I my continued journey to get Martin Freeman an Emmy nomination for his work on Breeders, after finally working his way back into the house, he suffers a back injury. This gets him some pain meds that lead to some very interesting behavior and an honest conversation with Luke, but when they wear off, ultimately Paul heads to the doctor… and we are left with a cliffhanger. Freeman’s work on this show is consistently darkly hilarious while also having a ton … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 30th

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

Emmy Winners

Honestly? I didn’t watch the Emmy’s tonight. I’ve lost all hope that the Emmy voters have any idea who to vote for. The nominations are silly. And, oh look, Breaking Bad swept the drama category. Oh, hey, Modern Family won… again. Breaking Bad has already won the Emmy for Best Drama series (last year). Anna Gunn won last year. Aaron Paul won two years ago. He won the year before that. Bryan Cranston won that year too. Cranston also won in 2009, and 2008. Bryan Cranston has now won 4 Emmys for playing Walter White, Aaron Paul has won three, … Continue reading Emmy Winners
