The Too Much TV Roundup- July 12th

There was this thing again in the middle of the day that won’t appear in my rankings of shows. That would be a weird thing to rank. And obviously, I’m talking about the Emmy nominations, which I definitely watched live. JB Smoove was not the right person for that announcement. 1) Ozark (Netflix) English Audio Description Available?: Yes For those wondering why I’m still watching Ozark into July, even at one episode per week, it’s because binge watching critics ruined the back half of the season by revealing the biggest character death. And this was that episode. i was dreading … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- July 12th

The Too Much TV Roundup- July 6th

What an oddly mediocre day of television I assembled for myself. 1) Hacks (HBOMAX) English Audio Description Available?: Yes IIn the 7th and likely penultimate half hour of the season, Deborah pitched her new show to the networks, only to have one that was even slightly interested. The funniest moment of the episode was Deborah coming home and finding out that a CD has been playing in her house since the last time she was there… in 2007. And the harshest moment was her “well you already did”, as a response to her agent disappointing her, when he actually quit … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- July 6th

The Too Much TV Roundup- June 29th

Just showing that it can happen. Nothing I watched yesterday is managing an A grade. Minus is as high as we go. 1) The Weakest Link (NBC/Peacock/Hulu) English Audio Description Available?: Depending On Platform. Bet you didn’t see this coming. i was laughing my ass off as somehow, the two dumbest players survived until the finale. This one guy missed the trivia question “I before E except after… what?” I was living for some of these answers. Ultimately, someone who did not deserve 40K got 40K. I loved. This episode so much. The one guy got to the finale and … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 29th

The Too Much TV Roundup- June 21st

Since starting doing this daily instead of weekly, i think I’ve always managed at least 5 shows. These January 6th hearings, plus trying to watch a movie everyday is throwing my rhythm off. And, you know, I don’t actually sit in front of a TV all day. 1) The Staircase (HBOMAX) English Audio Description Available?: Yes I was impressed pretty much right out of the gate with this HBO Limited series. No, I didn’t watch the Netflix doc. But, Colin Firth doesn’t usually, if ever, drop his accent, so hearing him pull off an American accent was interesting in itself. … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 21st

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 7th

Well, I have a couple of shows now with only one episode left that will be finished off next week I believe. Picking the top show today was difficult, as a couple of shows were firing on all cylinders. 1) Russian Doll (Netflix) English Audio Description Available?: Yes In what I believe is the penultimate hour (possibly for the series), Nadia went through some really trippy stuff as she gave birth to herself, then decided to kidnap herself and bring her back to the future, only to find out that time seemed to be collapsing around her. But then her … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 7th

The Too Much TV Roundup- June 1st

After having a day where I watched so many amazing shows, I followed it up with a day with so many really close to amazing shows. Not quite the same thing, but not every episode is created equal. 1) Woke (Hulu) English Audio Description: Yes Yeah, I didn’t expect Woke would ever be topping my daily watchlist either. But, after watching an episode where Keef, still reeling from being attacked for his lineage, hires a new publicist who has big dreams, including having Keef use his own organization to give himself an award for black excellence. So, Keef is giving … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- June 1st

The Too Much TV Roundup- May 28th

So, this was a weird day for me. As I sit down and really think about the rankings, I realize that none of the episodes I watched were really deserving of an A grade. This might be the first day since I started doing the daily roundup that that is the case. And, the best things i did watch, didn’t have audio description. Welcome to my twilight zone. 1) Gaslit (Starz) English Audio Description Available?: No This Watergate drama continues to be compelling material. I almost gave this an A, except there are themes it picks up and drops, like … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- May 28th

The Too Much TV Roundup- May 22nd

Comparatively, considering how long this list has been in the past, this was a rather normal amount of television. At least, for me, it felt like it was. I’m sure for some people, this was still a lot. Also, oddly enough, the majority of these do not offer audio description. I spent most of the day watching Star Wars films. 1) Gaslit (Starz) English Audio Description Available?: No Even with the lack of audio description, and me being reliant upon another human to tell me what’s happening as the series progresses, I can still see that Julia Roberts is absolutely … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- May 22nd
