The Too Much TV Roundup- September 12th

Well, how about those Emmy’s? Did your favorite win? With hundreds of scripted programs on the air, I’m going to guess probably not for many of you. Most of your favorite shows likely won’t even be nominated ever. But hey, at least they are predictable. 1) Love, Victor (Hulu/ Disney plus) English Audio Description?: Yes A perfect storm happened that allowed the series finale of Love Victor to rise to the top. House Of The Dragon produced its worst episode yet, and the other contenders just didn’t hit all the right notes. Love Victor figured out that what its audience … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 12th

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 30th

Still a work week, so only five shows battle it out. Let me tell you, be ready for a surprise. 1) The Lake (Amazon) English Audio Description?: Yes In a shocking turn of events, a show that has never topped the list broke through in like the 7th episode of the series. What we had here was the return of birth mother (who hilariously was just called that in the audio description until someone said her name), which allowed for a lot of context to how Billie came to be in the first place, how a kick ass chill girl … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- August 30th

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 10th

Slow news day, but I finished one of my favorite shows of the year, so it’s a bittersweet ranking. 1) Shining Girls (Apple Plus) English Audio Description?: Yes My gift to the world would be this show. What an amazing finale that perfectly wrapped up the insanity of everything set up so far in the series, and also never needing to explain the magic behind the event. This came down to Kirby versus Harper, and the final hour really felt like a stand up and cheer type of hour, as the revelations kept coming, and I fell in love with … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- August 10th

The Too Much TV Roundup- August 7th

One show I didn’t even finish the episode before giving up. Which one was it? 1) For All Mankind (Apple plus) English Audio Description?: Yes When you’re so personally invested in the characters that you envision yourself bitch slapping Margot down the hall for firing Molly, you know the show has great writing. Look, she may be a girl, but molly is a blind character working at fucking NASA, and I’m a blind film critic. If you didn’t think I’d have a strong reaction, and that Margot is now dead to me, you clearly misread this situation. And molly was … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- August 7th
