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

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

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

Today, picking number one meant I could easily have chosen any one of three shows. Each one deserved it for different reasons. Only one gets my top spot. 1) The Sandman (Netflix) English Audio Description?: Yes while last episode I found the questionable existence of Johanna Constantine perplexing, i did have a good laugh when Lucifer Morningstar was uttered. And to know that once again mazekin is at his side… or wait! Lucifer is a woman? Anyway, as a fan of that show, and being fully aware that Lucifer came after Sandman, I just found it unintentionally hilarious. But what … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- August 28th

The Too Much TV Roundup- August 19th

Six shows go in, one show was very obviously on top. 1) The Orville (Hulu) English Audio Description?: Yes I’m going to say it. The Orville is better than Star Trek, at least the many versions of shows we have had. I realize that without Star Trek, there wouldn’t be The Orville, but I’m much more involved and interested in the weekly adventures of this crew than any of the current Star Trek programs (of which there are FIVE). It’s Seth Macfarlane at his best writing, and this episode, talking about the Machlan traditions, and revisiting the baby girl that … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- August 19th

The Too Much TV Roundup- August 11th

Not a busy television show watching day. But, if every day was, I would never get anything else done. 1) Locke and Key (Netflix) English Audio Description Available?: Yes I’m a huge fan of this show, and while I appreciate that Netflix is giving it a final season (unlike Raising Deon) to wrap up its storylines, it clearly was planing for more seasons than just one. This episode is extremely rushed with the episode opening up with two characters we’ve never seen before, then moving into a data dump about Duncan’s impending wedding, how we are still short a Locke, … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- August 11th

The Too Much TV Roundup- August 4th

Well, I squeezed some shows in today for your viewing pleasure. At least one is a limited series that now is totally done. But did it top the list? 1) Loot (Apple Plus) English Audio Description?: Yes This was actually a pretty close race with not really a clear front runner, but of the seven programs I watched, Loot’s third episode, which featured Maya Rudolph at her absolute finest doing a “Hot Ones” interview, nudges out the rest of the shows. there were some contenders, for sure, but the singular funniest moment had to be that. Episode Grade: A 2) … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- August 4th

The Too Much TV Roundup- July 28th

A solid day of television, even if most of it was just so-so, and some new shows start to make their appearance in my rotation. 1) Undone (Amazon) English Audio Description?: Yes Just as Amazon dropped the cancellation hammer on The Wilds (which i gave up on during its first season), I’m here to champion another one of their shows (which didn’t stop them from cancelling night Sky). Undone is one of the most original shows on television, for a myriad of reasons, from its use of rotoscope to its general outline involving time travel and these abilities that this … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- July 28th

The Too Much TV Roundup- July 16th

I love how I throw a different random assortment of shows at each other every day, hoping to elicit a different rankings, with different shows at the top. Changing it up seems to make these lists far more interesting. 1) Undone (Amazon) English Audio Description Available?: Yes Sort of by a razors edge, Undone managed the top spot. Not necessarily because the episode itself was extraordinary, but rather that Undone continues to lay out a complex story over the course of a season that doesn’t feature many rises and falls between episodes. Everything gives you exactly enough to stay interested … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- July 16th
