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
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.
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
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
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
I finally had a slower day, and knocked out some shows. So this list is competitive as hell. I know the showrunners of these programs are eagerly awaiting… the results…. No? 1) She hulk (Disney Plus) English Audio Description?: Yes Jennifer Walters is hitting her stride in the third episode which blended a lot of cameos and Marvel ideas with some regular comedy, as her colleague was forced to defend the douchebag from the first episode who claims he lavished Megan The Stallion with 175K in gifts, only to find out it wasn’t really her… it was a shapeshifting Asgardian. … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 1st
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
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
