The Too Much TV Roundup- October 13th

Still keeping up with reverse format, and since I basically liked everything I watched yesterday, this one was a really hard list to put together. 8) The Connors (ABC/Hulu) English Audio Description?: Yes Well, audio description was back. Ultimately, this ended up drawing the short straw for three reasons. First, the somewhat unmomentus return of Louise (Katey Sagal), the return of Mary as a character even though DJ was let go earlier this year, meaning she no longer has a father, but they’ll make a joke about how little they’ve seen her. The better question is, why did you fire … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- October 13th

The Too Much TV Roundup- October 12th

I managed six shows today, one less than the past few days. I blame HBo MAX, at least in part, for me having to spend an irrational amount of time exploring why I can’t sign in only on my iOS app, but my Roku version is rocking it. So weird. And it just got super elevated, instead of resolved. The word on the street is that the countdown is the new hotness, so we will continue counting down. Kicking us off here is an old reliable (meaning: lack of audio description). 6) Reservation Dogs (Hulu) English Audio Description Available?: No … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- October 12th

The Too Much TV Roundup: October 11th

Got another decent sized list put together here. So, let’s see who rose to the top. The answer could be very surprising. Very. Very. You know what? I’m even going to flip it around, and do it in reverse order and countdown. Tell me if you enjoy the suspense of it all a little bit more. 7) The Equalizer (CBS/Paramount Plus) English Audio Description?: Oddly, no. Strangely enough, this episode did not have audio description. The season opener did, and most episodes, if not all, have had reliable audio description. And, it’s been enough time to upload it, as I … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup: October 11th

The Too Much TV Roundup- October 9th

A lot of shows fighting for the top. only one can have it. It was a though fight this week. 1) The Sandman (Netflix) English Audio Description Available?: Yes The Sandman wraps officially its 1st season (Yes, I’m still putting positive energy out into the world), and with a finale that wrapped everything up in fine form, I can see where we’ve been and the ride I enjoyed, but also see the groundwork laid for next season.Hopefully Netflix steps up and gives this a shot. Episode Grade: A, Season 1 (without the bonus episode): A- 2) The Good Fight (Paramount … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- October 9th

The Too Much TV Roundup- October 6th

I hard a really great day overall full of solid television, and I’m here to sing some universal praises. 1) Trying (Apple Plus) English Audio Description?: Yes The third season finale of Trying did everything it needed to do. It melted cold hearts everywhere. Seeing this family on their journey over the last three seasons has been great, and on the offside chance we never hear from them again, this season finale could satisfy as a series finale. it was so cute, so adorable, it made you root for characters you loved already even more than you thought could be … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- October 6th

The Too Much TV Rounup- October 5th

Holy crap. Five days into the month so far? FIVE? This month has flown by. i even missed the day Aaron Samuels asked Cady what day it was. 1) What We Do In The Shadows (FX/Hulu) English Audio Description?: No Sometimes, every once in a while, I allow a non-audio described title to rise to the top of the list. And S4E9 of What We Do in The Shadows was worthy. A delightful episode called Freddie, where you know that something will be up with this titular character. But I never could have predicted this plot. Guillermo has secretly been … Continue reading The Too Much TV Rounup- October 5th

The Too Much TV Roundup- October 4th

Finally allowed back to work after the hurricane, so the days of having a ton of shows on this list on weekdays is now back to normal. 1) The Handmaid’s Tale (Hulu) English Audio Description?: Yes I love the dynamic this season. One question I did have from how our audio description was structured, was that Luke ultimately was successful in these code violations, which led me to believe that maybe the property was a dump. There really wasn’t enough description of Serena’s property to be able to tell if the code violations were just little things, or big things. … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- October 4th

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
