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

MeetCute

Where I Watched It: Peacock English Audio Description Available?: Yes Time traveling comedies. We’ve seen a lot of them. None of them have quite been MeetCute, which demands quite a lot from its audience in order to get to the romcom angle if you ever have a hope of accepting your traditional romcom ending. Watching this film all the way through reminded me of back in the day my feelings on The Break up, that long forgotten Jennifer Aniston/Vince Vaughn romcom that somewhat deconstructed the genre, and ended on a sour note. Back then, I hated it. I disliked it … Continue reading MeetCute

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 26th a dive on my rankings this week.

1) The Terminal List (Amazon) English Audio Description?: Yes I will say, they closed out the series in fine form. That final reveal, the final name on the list, so brutal. No spoilers here, but it was enough for this show, which rarely does top the list, to earn the spot. Full of action, and a really nice cat and mouse game between our favorite reporter and a cooperating Secretary of Defense really helped put this episode over the top. Nice way to close out the show. Episode Grade: A, Series Grade: A- 2) Reservation Dogs (Hulu) English Audio Description?: … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 26th a dive on my rankings this week.

Vengeance

Where I Watched It: Peacock English Audio Description?: No One of those rare reviews I still do where there was no audio description. Is this film still watchable? Isn’t that why you’re here? All movies could be enhanced by audio description for blind and visually impaired, even the easier to follow ones, because likely there is always something we are missing. Directors always like to have quiet scenes, moments where actors do things through motion not dialogue, and sometimes entire montages that pass time while set to music. Even in an easy to understand film, we can still miss out … Continue reading Vengeance

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- September 19th

It was a nice day. I felt like some shows read my blog and addressed issues I was having, while others did not. i know, that’s crazy, but it feels nice to feel like you’ve been heard. Speaking of, is Disney Plus really going to let their strong commitment to audio description die with Dancing With The Stars? I thought that might be the plus side of it moving to Disney Plus, but alas, as of this writing, it has no audio description. I’m not reviewing it, as I only watched it long enough to realize there was no audio … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 19th

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 14th

A show returned, and I finished one. So, it’s like one goes out, and another comes in. 1) Blackbird (Apple Plus) English Audio Description?: Yes There are scenes in this final episode that would have caused me to hand Taron Edgerton and Paul Walterhouser not just Emmy awards, but also Oscars. They are literal fire in the final episode, with each of them at the pinnacle of their acting performances. Walterhouser has given us a glimpse of this type of capability before, but never to this level, and Edgerton seemed more interested in pumping out stuff like that abysmal Robin … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 14th

Jurassic World Dominion

Where I Watched It: Peacock English Audio Description Available?: Yes I always try and be upfront with whatever audience I have, so here are a few things prefacing my thoughts on Dominion. I, like many, consider Jurassic park to be a benchmark film that solidified a passion I still have today. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve seen this film, but even now as a blind person, it is one of only a small handful of films that I can watch without audio description and listen to the audio track and actually play the entire thing in my … Continue reading Jurassic World Dominion

Honk For Jesus

Where I Watched It: Peacock English Audio Description?: Yes Fun fact. Since losing my vision, I’ve cared a whole lot less about film trailers, since trying to find audio described versions of them is more frustrating than finding audio described content on some of these streaming platforms. So, when i saw that there was a film coming up called honk For Jesus starring Regina Hall and Sterling K Brown, I assumed it was a petty straightforward religious baiting drama in the vein of Heaven is For Real, Miracles From Heaven, and other studio concocted gems. The dead giveaway here was … Continue reading Honk For Jesus

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 8th

Just wait till we get to the bottom of this list. you just wait. 1) She Hulk (Disney Plus) English Audio Description?: Yes I do not care where she puts the Y in her name, but Polly Guggenheim is welcome back on this show, or any show, or any MCU movie ever in my opinion. If it were me, I’d be signing her to a massive contract right now, so she can just appear as needed, whenever we need a good laugh. Hilarious work, and in an episode where Marvel was obviously screwing with us with Donny Blaze, by making … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 8th

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 6th

I managed some television today, so the rankings won’t be so boring for the 3 of you I’m sure read this post. It’s all for you. One love. 1) The Terminal List (Amazon) English Audio Description?: Yes Well, spoilers I guess. But in Episode 5, which is not the finale, Reese managed to go after the guy responsible for his brain tumor. And he did it. In the 5th episode. That kind of felt like the big boss at the end, but a well timed car bomb, and a little sidewalk shootout took care of his guards and out King … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 6th

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 4th

I watched a lot of TV yesterday, and now you have to. That’s the deal. Right? 1) Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous (Netflix) English Audio Description?: Yes This animated offering, which is much better than you would think, has put out its final season on Netflix. There were a lot of shows yesterday, but nothing made me happier than starting Season 5, and beginning the sad journey to saying farewell to the six kids who made a series that was far more interesting than either of the Jurassic World sequels. And I can say this, because I also watched Dominion today, … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 4th
