My shortest list of the week so far, but I did manage a movie, and a live theatre event. So, that’s where my time went. 5) Maggie (Hulu) English Audio Description?: Yes I really thought Hulu was going 10 episodes on this like they usually do, so I was surprised to see we are plowing past episode 10. It’s been a few months, and I don’t know if Hulu will stick with Maggie. They have a habit of cancelling sitcoms, or killing them on their second season (Dollface/Woke). So an episode about loss might be preparing us for inevitable cancellation. … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- October 21st
A long list of shows today. And, still in the new countdown format. One of these shows, I’m really not sure I’ll be staying with. 8) History 101 (Netflix) English Audio Description?: Yes I’m just putting this last because I’m really not sure I needed 23 minutes on hallucinogenic drugs. I’m not totally sure they’ve covered enough topics yet to be at a point where this is the right time, though I support their medicinal use. Maybe, i just didn’t care that this episode existed? Episode Grade: B- 7) Moe (Netflix) English Audio Description?: Yes So, here’s the problem that … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- October 14th
Just another day sliding through episodes of TV shows. 1) The Rings Of power (Amazon) English Audio Description?: Yes in the 6th episode, we focused primarily on one topic, which meant we didn’t even visit certain storylines. The refugees were about to go into battle with the orcs, who are being led by an Elf that has felt the dark side. It’s a pretty action packed hour of television, that eventually results in the merging of two groups, meaning less hopping around in the future. Hopefully. Episode Grade: A 2) Five Days At Memorial (Apple Plus) English Audio Description?: Yes … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- October 7th
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
A show returned, and I finished one. So, it’s like one goes out, and another comes in. 1) Blackbird (Apple Plus) English Audio Description?: Yes There are scenes in this final episode that would have caused me to hand Taron Edgerton and Paul Walterhouser not just Emmy awards, but also Oscars. They are literal fire in the final episode, with each of them at the pinnacle of their acting performances. Walterhouser has given us a glimpse of this type of capability before, but never to this level, and Edgerton seemed more interested in pumping out stuff like that abysmal Robin … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 14th
Just wait till we get to the bottom of this list. you just wait. 1) She Hulk (Disney Plus) English Audio Description?: Yes I do not care where she puts the Y in her name, but Polly Guggenheim is welcome back on this show, or any show, or any MCU movie ever in my opinion. If it were me, I’d be signing her to a massive contract right now, so she can just appear as needed, whenever we need a good laugh. Hilarious work, and in an episode where Marvel was obviously screwing with us with Donny Blaze, by making … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 8th
I watched a lot of TV yesterday, and now you have to. That’s the deal. Right? 1) Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous (Netflix) English Audio Description?: Yes This animated offering, which is much better than you would think, has put out its final season on Netflix. There were a lot of shows yesterday, but nothing made me happier than starting Season 5, and beginning the sad journey to saying farewell to the six kids who made a series that was far more interesting than either of the Jurassic World sequels. And I can say this, because I also watched Dominion today, … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 4th
