The Too Much TV Roundup- September 29th

I managed to keep power during the hurricane, and with nothing else do do, I watched a lot of tv/film. So here’s a rather large list for a Thursday. 1) She Hulk (Disney Plus) English Audio Description?: Yes So, for fans of obscure Marvel characters, you got your wish this episode. However, why I put this on top is that the show has given Tim Roth’s A-Bob a chance to really grow, in a way where he might even be useful one day. He managed to sit down with Jen and really work some stuff out, while the least surprising … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 29th

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 28th

Since I live in the path of hurricane Ian, and I don’t know my power/wifi status tomorrow, you’re getting this early. This is actually what I watched today, but would normally write about on Thursday. 1) The Rookie (ABC/Hulu) English Audio Description Available?: Yes first of all, not only is the Rookie one of the best described shows on TV (definitely network TV), but it was so nice to see the whole gang together again, and in a thrilling Season premiere that saw one recurring character with their life very much in the balance. So glad to have this show … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 28th

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 20th

Today was interesting to be sure. A brand new show, and an attempt to watch something presented in a new format. 1) Locke and Key (Netflix) English Audio Description?: Yes So, as we march onward to the series finale, Ellie led Gideon to an alive former classmate, someone who was very nice back in high school days, and really wanted to be a part of their group, but they never let him in on the secret. They actually went in one time to remove a memory from his head, and it was that point that they hid the key. But, … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 20th

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 9th

Well, this day was very different. I have an idea of how I want to rank certain programs, but there are two that I will not be ranking. The first, being the January 6th hearing that aired across most major networks. The second, will be explained below. Before we get to the rankings: Queer As Folk (Peacock) English Audio Description Available?: Yes In just a few days, as a resident of Orlando, the city beautiful will be commemorating the anniversary of the mass shooting at the Pulse nightclub that took the lives of 49 individuals, almost all LGBT, who showed … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 9th

The Too Much TV Roundup- May 30th

Lots of random TV shows were consumed on Memorial Day. Let’s see where they finally stacked up. 1) Bridgerton (Netflix) English Audio Description: Yes In the 7th episode, shit starts getting real. The fallout from the lack of the wedding starts to plague the families involved, meanwhile the Queen has set her sights on her target, which prompts a response from Lady Whistledown. But that final moment, where Anthony sees Kate in what could be a deadly accident (let’s face it, medical science in this time period is not on her side), put me on a cliffhanger for what I … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- May 30th

The Too Much TV Roundup- May 26th

Somehow, in and around the movies, I’m still managing to knock out series. It’s a tough job, but someone’s gotta do it. Lol. 1) Better Call Saul (Netflix/AMC) English Audio Description available?: Yes in the 7th episode of Season 5, jimmy and Kim worked toward a closure on their Green Table (aka Mesa Verde) plot, which led to not only a whopper of a gimmick from Saul Goodman, but in the episode’s B-Plot, mike worked to remove Lallo from the equation without personally linking himself to the events. So many actors deserve Emmy’s from this series. Episode Grade: A 2) … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- May 26th

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 22nd

Comparatively, considering how long this list has been in the past, this was a rather normal amount of television. At least, for me, it felt like it was. I’m sure for some people, this was still a lot. Also, oddly enough, the majority of these do not offer audio description. I spent most of the day watching Star Wars films. 1) Gaslit (Starz) English Audio Description Available?: No Even with the lack of audio description, and me being reliant upon another human to tell me what’s happening as the series progresses, I can still see that Julia Roberts is absolutely … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- May 22nd

The Too Much TV Roundup- May 20th

Yet another great day in television. I haven’t even started to watch Heartstopper, and it has already been picked up for seasons 2 and 3. It didn’t even need my help to survive. Of course, there are dozens of shows I’ve never watched, that keep getting renewed. You can’t watch everything. 1) The Last Days Of Ptolemy Gray (Apple Plus) English Audio Description Available?: Yes third episode in, and I keep getting more invested, and more hooked in this terrific Apple limited that features an amazing performance by Samuel l jackson. If you didn’t get a chance to check it … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- May 20th

The Too Much tV Roundup- May 19th

I had a fun little day with some great shows. I feel like overall Thursday’s crop was stronger than Wednesday’s. 1) Reacher (Amazon) English Audio Description Available?: Yes This show is addictive. in Episode 6, every episode has some heart pumping action, and intense sequences. Since I didn’t read the book, and it seems like no one is safe from being killed, other than Jack Reacher, I feel like anyone could die at any time. And that raises the stakes of every episode. This has been one of the most rewarding experiences from a new show I’ve had in quite … Continue reading The Too Much tV Roundup- May 19th

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 Roundup- May 15th

I’m about to reveal that I’ve been catching up on some shows. I always admit I’m a bit behind… but one of these shows started back in November. 1) The Walking Dead (AMC) English Audio Description Available?: No This show, now in its 11th and final season, is one of my favorite shows of all time. For the time I’ve been blind, which has been for a handful of seasons now, I have to go out of my way to navigate a way to watch this show. I used to watch this show with a group of friends on XBOX, … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- May 15th

The Too Much TV Roundup- May 12th

I did squeez in a movie in and around all of these TV shows. On a side note, yesterday was a brutal red wedding for TV shows (and decisions still need to be made by ABC and fOX). CBS has said goodbye to Magnum PI, The United States Of Al, Be Positive, How We Roll, and Good Sam. (If I could save one of those five, it would be The United States of Al, though CBS is cutting back on comedies altogether, ordering no new sitcoms, and returning next year with just the four returnees). NBC cancelled The Endgame, Mr … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- May 12th
