The Too Much TV Roundup- July 13th

What random assortment of nonsense did i string together today? Which shows totally unrelated are against each other in rankings? Well, we do have a show I have never put in the top spot before, so that’s new. 1) Pachenko (Apple Plus) English Audio Description?: Yes This Japanese/Korean drama proved that you don’t need to watch Asian people risking their lives for cash in order for the story to translate and be compelling on its own. Pachenko is it’s own thing, a drama constructed around a point in history that is not uniquely American, challenging our audiences to watch something … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- July 13th

The Too Much TV Roundup- July 4th

I definitely watched a really nice chunk of shows. not everything was perfect, but the overall quality was solid. 1) Outer Range (Amazon) English Audio Description: Yes I had a really hard time picking the top spot because so many shows were on fire. Outer Range though, with all its twists and turns continued to amaze me. Whether it be Royal’s rather destructive treatment of Autumn, or her ultimate path toward revenge (and that phone call! Who is funding her?), to the smaller moments between a brother who made a choice thinking it was the right call, but not knowing … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- July 4th

The Tragedy Of MacBeth

Starring: Denzel Washington, Frances McDormand, Katherine Hunter, Brendan Gleeson, Corey Hawkins, Stephen Root, and Sean Patrick Thomas. Directed By: Joel Coen Where I Watched It: Apple TV Plus English Audio Description Available?: Yes The Plot: Unfortunately, this film is not Denzel Washington haunting any daring stage actor who has the courage to say MacBeth instead of “The Scottish Play”. Instead, this is just Shakespeare’s text of Macbeth (Washington) a Scottish lord who becomes convinced that he can make a power grab after consulting with witches (Hunter), and with the full support of his wife (McDormand). What Works: It’s Shakespeare’s text, … Continue reading The Tragedy Of MacBeth
