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 20th

A bit of a mixed bag today. Definitely a wider range of quality than on Sunday. 1) Outer Range (amazon) English Audio Description Available?: Yes Things really heated up in this episode. The interim sSheriff showed she’s a lot smarter than people give her credit for, Royal threatened the land commissioner who clearly did not feel threatened, and someone else now knows about the black hole. That was definitely a way to end that episode. I thought Will Payton was going into the hole, but turns out… well I’ll find out next week. This is what TV watching should be. … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 20th

The Too Much TV Roundup- June 19th

Today, I put myself in the position of having to choose between some heavy hitters for the top spot. Let’s just accept that this was a great day for television, for me at least. 1) Hacks (HBO MAX) English Audio Description Available?: Yes In the 4th episode of season,Deborah finds out she’s been booked on a lesbian cruise, which causes her to need to examine her material as she is very aware that lesbians do not like her. After making the effort to have fun, Deborah starts to believe that this might be her community after all, but she still … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 19th

The Too Much TV Roundup- June 17th

It’s time to make the donuts. 1) The Boys (Amazon) English Audio Description Available?: Yes Where to begin? The brilliant cameos by Paul Reiser and Seth Rogen? How about that stepdad that is pro-Homelander trying to have some conversation with Milk about how awesome Homelander is. Or that musical number? or Mave and Butcher? There’s really no way around it, this show never bores me. And it seems to find a new way to be outlandish every time out. Episode Grade: A 2) Barry (HBO/HBO MAX) English Audio Description Available?: Yes After the shock of trying to remember what the … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 17th

The Too Much TV Roundup- June 16th

Today, once again a large chunk of my day was taken up by non-TV shows. There was a hearing, and i managed two movies. So this feels like a lower count of TV shows than usual, which makes it easier for the winner. 1) Ozark (Netflix) English Audio Description Available?: Yes In the 10th episode of the final season, Marty spent most of the episode trying to get a guy to convince to something we’re al pretty sure he didn’t do. Meanwhile, the Julia Garner vs Laura Linney face off is getting perfect as Ruth actually managed to outsmart her … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 16th

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 14th

All of this, plus work, and I managed to squeez in a movie. Time management, y’all. That’s the way to do it. Finished off another show, and kind of finished off another. 1) Stranger Things (Netflix) English Audio Description Available?: Yes The last new episode for a few weeks. I loved how this episode played out, because I felt like it was trying me. At first, I was like, will Eleven ever get out of this fucking training center? Then, I saw what they were doing, and I realized we needed to wait for this moment. Of course, I recognized … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 14th

The Too Much TV Roundup- June 12th

Admittedly, I’m still catching up on TV shows. Very much so. 1) Girls5Eva (Peacock) English Audio Description: Yes Peacock is on thin ice with me right now. They don’t actually have enough returning shows to get hyped over, as they have a rather small roster. the fact that Girls5Eva hasn’t been already renewed in a multi-season deal is insane. This is the funniest show on any platform. I know Emmy voters aren’t watching, but you should be. The second episode of Season 2 featured Wiki trying to hide one of her feet, because only one of them is perfect apparently. … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 12th

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- June 6th

Gonna stop clogging up these lists with random reruns of old shows. Keeping it fresh, or at least relatively fresh. No one cares where I’m at in Cheers. Although, everybody does know my name there. 1) Bridgerton (Netflix) English Audio Description Available?: Yes I don’t know what this means for fans of Bridgerton that latched on during Season 1, but I wasn’t a huge fan of the first season. But, I really enjoyed season 2, and how they changed Anthony into a character we could actually root for, even after all his bullshit in Season 1. Not to mention, Kate … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 6th

The Northman

Starring: Alexander Skarsgard, Nicole Kidman, Claes Bang, Ethan Hawke, Anya Taylor Joy, and Willem Dafoe. Directed By: Robert Eggers Where I Watched It: Peacock English Audio Description Available?: Yes The Plot: Hamlet. With Vikings. It’s a lot more fun if you think of how closely this follows the plot of The Lion King. Which is also… Hamlet. What Works: If you pop over to IMDB, you see that in the plot description for the film, you get “From visionary director Robert Eggers”, which is quite a leap there. I guess his third major feature makes him a visionary director worth … Continue reading The Northman

The Too Much TV Roundup- June 5th

Always keeping it interesting by throwing a different mixture of shows against each other. Who is on top? 1) Girls5Eva (Peacock) English Audio Description Available?: Probably. look, I tried to activate the audio description, but the app was buggy as hell. This show has AD, but because I didn’t personally listen to it, i can’t outright say Yes. But, every time I watch this show, I become more and more convinced that based on laughs per episode, this is the funniest show on television. Any platform. You have to like the nonsensical humor, but if this show is your thing, … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 5th

The Too Much TV Roundup- May 31st

Sometimes, you just pick a really good block of shows, and then your day of watching feels very well spent. Here’s a rundown of everything I watched yesterday. (Yes, everything. I didn’t watch a film yesterday). 1) Reacher (Amazon) English Audio Description Available?: Yes Last week, I acknowledged I was one episode away from finishing this season, and I had to rank it in second then because it was up against a season finale. I said then that Reacher would be on top when I finished, and I kept my promise, despite putting it on the same day as the … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- May 31st

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

Ambulance

Starring: Yaya Abdul Mateen, Jake Gyllenhaal, Eiza Gonzalez, Garrett Dillahunt, Jackson White, and Keir O’Donnell. Directed By: Michael Bay Where I Watched it: Peacock English Audio Description Available?: Yes Description provided By: Media Access Group Narrated By: Andrew Thatcher The Plot: An army veteran (Mateen) who is trying to get his wife medical care is finding that the system built for those who have served this country is insufficient and he can’t get his insurance to help his wife.
