The Too Much TV Roundup- October 14th

A long list of shows today. And, still in the new countdown format. One of these shows, I’m really not sure I’ll be staying with. 8) History 101 (Netflix) English Audio Description?: Yes I’m just putting this last because I’m really not sure I needed 23 minutes on hallucinogenic drugs. I’m not totally sure they’ve covered enough topics yet to be at a point where this is the right time, though I support their medicinal use. Maybe, i just didn’t care that this episode existed? Episode Grade: B- 7) Moe (Netflix) English Audio Description?: Yes So, here’s the problem that … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- October 14th

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 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 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

The Too Much TV Roundup- September 7th

Five shows enter the thunder dome. One comes out on top. one, honestly, really came out on top and if there isn’t another season I’m gonna cry. 1) The Orville (Hulu/Disney plus) English Audio Description?: Yes The 8th episode of the season was definitely a bit long, but so rewarding. A routine trip to Machlan to view the women’s colony to make sure they were living up to their agreement gave Bortis’s daughter the opportunity to meet other females, including the one brave enough to reveal herself and speak on behalf of her when she was just a baby. Things … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 7th

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

The Too Much TV Roundup- August 27th

Today, you might say, was a bit of a catch up day. Forgive the ensuing madness. 1) Baymax (Disney Plus) English Audio Description/: Yes i bet you didn’t see this one coming. At the top of my list is the short form series for a very good reason. the third episode of the season is one of the best episodes of any TV show this year, taking a thoughtful, honest, and rather realistic look at a young girl’s first period, which she has the misfortune of having at school, where the stalls are out of pads. But Baymax is here … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- August 27th

The Too Much TV Roundup- August 21st

A little early for me, but don’t worry, I watched a ton of TV today, and I’m too busy to post this tomorrow morning. 1) Trying (Apple Plus) English Audio Description?: Yes This. Season. Premiere. Was. Everything! Where Breeders may be a more dramatic cynical look at raising a family, Trying has focused on the happier moments, pushing that our main couple really is trying. What I loved so much about this episode was that all of their family came together when they found out that only one of the new kids was staying. And while our leads were off … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- August 21st
