The Too Much TV Roundup- October 2nd

One of these shows had a trigger warning. Find out which one below! It’ll be a fun mystery until you get there. 1) The Sandman (Netflix) English Audio Description?: Yes We are getting into the meat of the show. Rose has some real power, as shown in this episode. Dream is becoming a problematic protagonist as you don’t always root for him, because his life choices are largely out of touch. So, Rose has taken over, and she’s going to get her brother back. But that seems to be a challenge, as the Corinthian has taken him to a serial … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- October 2nd

The Too Much TV Roundup- October 1st

Today I say goodbye to a show I’m certain would make my 100 list of my favorite shows of all time. We had quite a run. only three seasons, but those three were magnificent. So, of course, right on top… 1) Locke and key (Netflix) English Audio Description Available?: Yes I’m sad now. Not just because the show emotionally manipulated me with that time shift key one more time, but because this is it. The final episode. The Lockes defeated Gideon, and the only losses were a character we knew next to nothing about (RIP Gordy) and one who needed … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- October 1st

On The Come Up

Where I Watched it: Paramout Plus Audio Description provided By: international Digital Center Written By: Liz gutman Narrated By: Tate Keller (?) Until I posted about this film on my social media, I didn’t know it was a book. I was pretty impressed with the story as is, and somehow became less impressed when I realized it was an adaptation and not an original work. That didn’t stop me from loving this film, and going out on a limb for it here. on The Come up features a complex story about a young girl who dreams of following in her … Continue reading On The Come Up

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 30th

Heading into Halloween season, I leave September behind with a few thoughts, and some new additions to the rotation. 1) The Patient (hulu) English Audio Description Available?: Yes See how easy that was Hulu? All you needed to do to stop getting shitty scores on this show was actually add audio description so I could follow the show. in Episode 4, the tension continues to mount, as the trapped doctor tries to communicate with the next likely victim, knowing that if he can’t get a breakthrough with his serial killer patient, the guy across the hall is dead. Not only … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 30th

Respect

Where I Watched It: Paramount Plus English Audio Description?: Yes The funny thing is, I saw this sitting forever on Prime, and it didn’t have AD. Then it popped up on paramount Plus, and suddenly audio description existed, so i could finally watch Jennifer Hudson do her thing as Aretha Franklin. i had already watched a break down of Hudson’s voice, and how she actually tried to match Aretha’s tone and runs, and not just put her own spin on it. Every note she went for was Aretha’s note. It’s a solid performance, it’s just not as great of a … Continue reading Respect

Overlord

Where I Watched It: Paramount Plus English Audio Description Available?: Yes Despite currently being the blind film critic, I once had sight and really enjoyed my video games. I especially enjoyed the Call of Duty zombie games, and their various maps. Most of the original maps started in Nazi Germany, with Nazi zombies. Overlord seemed to me like it would be making good on that promise. It’s not entirely that. It’s a bit of the Resident Evil films meets World War II. It’s not The Walking Dead, though some might call soldiers dropped behind enemy lines just that. It has … Continue reading Overlord

The Too Much TV Rounup- September 24th

After hearing some of my friends discussing the show on Facebook, as well as seeing the reaction by the families of the victims, I have no plan to watch Ryan Murphy’s Dahmer at any point. Which is fine with me, since there are a billion shows I’m behind on. 1) The Orville (Hulu) English Audio Description?: Yes Well, I’ll give Seth macfarlane credit. he did write a season finale that could very well still lead into a fourth season. There are places they could go, but also this could serve as a light series finale if needed. It’s not the … Continue reading The Too Much TV Rounup- September 24th

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 16th

I’m quite conflicted today, as many of these shows are quite close in the lineup. 1) Solar Opposites (Hulu) English Audio Description?: Yes In a world where a lot of the shows I watched today tried their hands at some different tricks, the 8th episode of Solar Opposites was wildly on brand, featuring dueling storylines between the people in the wall trying to escape, but essentially running into Morlock versions of themselves, while the main family enter this trippy reality where people are being replaced, and there’s a Hall of Betrayal. Is eating someone’s taki’s really anywhere near the level … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 16th

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 15th

Is it possible? A cancelled TV show on top? Yes. yes it is. 1) Paper Girls (Amazon) English Audio Description?: Yes Amazon’s unjustly cancelled sci-fi drama continued to be really weird in Episode 3. This show is like an onion, and you will not know what the hell is going on until the center, which will take a while. That can be very rewarding. in this episode, we saw Mac find her brother, who is shocked to see her, and thinks it’s some kind of joke because mac died at 16. But, after seeing the walkman with his cassette tape … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 15th

Paws Of Fury: The Legend Of hank

Where I Watched It: Paramount Plus English Audio Description?: Yes This was a film I had no idea was even in the pipeline. Then, when it suddenly was released, theatrically, I started seeing the reviews. Some critics wondered why this wasn’t sent straight to Paramount Plus, but most understand that a theatrical run can elevate a product like this and keep it from feeling like a third rate film no one ever needed. And the truth is, we didn’t need this film. But, all things considered, it could have been much worse. Aside from the god awful title, this animated … Continue reading Paws Of Fury: The Legend Of hank

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 10th

A couple of new shows today. Just shaking up the rankings a bit. 1) Uncoupled (Netflix) English Audio Description?: Yes I don’t know if this can sustain. I don’t have those answers after just watching the pilot. But I am sure, this show has a terrific pilot, and i was super drawn into Neil Patrick Harris’s character, getting a glimpse of what I’m sure will be a well rounded supporting cast, all of them seeming to develop their own personalities right away. But the first episode, that dealt with the title of the show, and how Colin needed to find … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 10th

Star Trek: The motion Picture: Directors Edition

Where I Watched it: Paramount Plus English Audio Description: Yes Admittedly, I noticed this because Paramount reminded me it was leaving the service at the end of August, and I’m a little backlogged. So, this particular edition may no longer be on Paramount Plus, despite it being the unofficial home of everything Star Trek. Are you aware there are currently FIVE Star Trek series producing episodes? Discovery, Picard, Strange New Worlds, Lower Decks, and Prodigy. Anyway, the only OG Star Trek film I’v actually seen is The Undiscovered Country before they passed it along to the Next Generation cast. So, … Continue reading Star Trek: The motion Picture: Directors Edition

Citizen Ruth

Where I Watched it: Paramount Plus English Audio Description Available?: No I went way off script and watched a film with no audio description, that came from the mid-90’s. No, I don’t really have a good reason except Paramount Plus was pushing it on me, and I hadn’t seen it yet. For lack of a better term, Citizen Ruth is an abortion comedy. That’s as weird for me to type out as it is for you to read. And, it totally feels 90’s, complete with a late in the film arrival by Burt Reynolds. Basically, Ruth is a Trainwreck of … Continue reading Citizen Ruth

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 3rd

I watched a lot of great television this day. So, don’t be surprised by my top pick, because it was really freaking hard. 1) Harley Quinn (HBo MAX) English Audio Description?: Yes The 6th episode of the season, essentially a bottle episode centered around the Joker, where he’s raising a family, sitcom style, and has an adopted son named Benecio that he really wants to feel more pride in the heritage of his name and his culture, and tries to fight an entitled PTA mom to get his son a spot on a cultural exchange trip. Seriously. This is the … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 3rd

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 2nd

Well, yes, this is a roundup, but pretty much also serves as my official thoughts on the new Lord of The Rings series. 1) Lord Of The Rings: The Rings Of power (Amazon) English Audio Description Available?: Yes So, it has arrived. And it was worth the arrival. JA Bayona, whose directorial career is a mixed bag of sorts, manages to direct a rather well done pilot for a series set in Middle earth. It has an expansive feel to it, much the same way a Game of Thrones series does, or even something like The Wheel Of Time, where … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 2nd
