The Too Much TV Roundup- July 13th

What random assortment of nonsense did i string together today? Which shows totally unrelated are against each other in rankings? Well, we do have a show I have never put in the top spot before, so that’s new. 1) Pachenko (Apple Plus) English Audio Description?: Yes This Japanese/Korean drama proved that you don’t need to watch Asian people risking their lives for cash in order for the story to translate and be compelling on its own. Pachenko is it’s own thing, a drama constructed around a point in history that is not uniquely American, challenging our audiences to watch something … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- July 13th

The Too Much TV Roundup- July 6th

What an oddly mediocre day of television I assembled for myself. 1) Hacks (HBOMAX) English Audio Description Available?: Yes IIn the 7th and likely penultimate half hour of the season, Deborah pitched her new show to the networks, only to have one that was even slightly interested. The funniest moment of the episode was Deborah coming home and finding out that a CD has been playing in her house since the last time she was there… in 2007. And the harshest moment was her “well you already did”, as a response to her agent disappointing her, when he actually quit … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- July 6th

Just showing that it can happen. Nothing I watched yesterday is managing an A grade. Minus is as high as we go. 1) The Weakest Link (NBC/Peacock/Hulu) English Audio Description Available?: Depending On Platform. Bet you didn’t see this coming. i was laughing my ass off as somehow, the two dumbest players survived until the finale. This one guy missed the trivia question “I before E except after… what?” I was living for some of these answers. Ultimately, someone who did not deserve 40K got 40K. I loved. This episode so much. The one guy got to the finale and … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 29th

The Too Much TV Roundup- June 22nd

Nerd Day! A bunch of things aimed at a very specific group all dropped today. All of this, plus I managed a multiverse of madness. 1) The Umbrella Academy (Netflix) English Audio Description Available?: Yes Maybe it was the dance fight. No, it was definitely the dance fight, dream sequenced or not, that sent this episode to the top of my rankings chart. Really happy to have this show back for another 10 episodes. I was wondering when they were going to address the Vanya/Elliot Page need to transition the character, but not in the first episode would be that … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 22nd

The Too Much TV Roundup- June 15th

Five shows should be easy to rank. Right? I also squeezed in a movie, so this short list is somewhat deceiving. 1) Killing It (Peacock) English Audio Description Available?: Yes The 6th episode of this increasingly more and more hilarious sitcom found Craig outside in a massive line waiting to vote just to make his daughter happy, while being followed around by an insurance agent. Meanwhile, Jillian’s sister is the literal worst. Or maybe her dogs are. I can’t tell. Probably both. Episode Grade: A 2) Miss Marvel (Disney Plus) English Audio Description Available?: Yes In the second episode, we … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 15th

The Too Much TV Roundup- June 8th

I was highly anticipating the new entries, but it ended up with the same predictable show on top anyway. 1) The Last Days of Ptolemy Gray (Apple Plus) English Audio Description Available?: Yes in the series finale, time is not on Ptolemy’s side. Still, it’s amazing that this miracle drug managed to give Ptolemy the kind of final closure he needed on his life so he could finally be at peace with himself, knowing that he left everything the way he wanted, instead of wondering what that nagging feeling was at the back of his mind. It’s a great performance … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 8th
