The Too Much TV Roundup- August 14th

I started a few more shows today, and sadly none of them reached the top spot. Sometimes, it takes time. 1) Only Murders In The building (Hulu) English Audio Description: Yes The winner today was everyone’s favorite gang of podcasters, who continue to try and solve the mystery of why they are being framed. but, it was the injection of some heavy hitting guest stars that sent this episode over the top, from Tina Fey’s unnecessarily cutthroat rival caster, Jane Lynch’s always welcome return as the one time stunt double, Amy Ryan’s deliciously evil killer, or Michael Rappaport’s exhausted lead … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- August 14th

The Too Much TV Roundup- August 6th

One of those super chill days where I cleared a lot off my watchlist. This list doesn’t even include any films watched. 1) The Orville (Hulu) English Audio Description?: Yes Listen, Seth, I know that secretly you want to be done with this show for some reason. unfortunately, and I say this as a huge Family Guy fan from back in the day, this is the best thing you’ve ever done. This third episode, which featured a handful of the crew landing on a planet that showed life where there wasn’t supposed to be any was quite amazing. Sending each … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- August 6th

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

The Too Much TV Roundup- July 9th

Welcome back to the roundup. Not a big list of shows for the day, but a pretty solid one. 1) Shining Girls (Apple Plus) English Audio Description: Yes I vote this series most likely to make you go “WTF” and make your skin crawl in the same episode. A fascinating piece of work from Apple, really unlike anything else on right now. It would be easy to write this off as a standard crime solving TV series, but Kirby breaking with reality every episode really does put a twist on things. And, the narration does a great job of following … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- July 9th

The Too Much TV Roundup- July 2nd

No more running up that hill. At least, not until the final season of Stranger Things drops, which I’m assuming is a two year wait. 1) Stranger Things (Netflix) English Audio Description Available?: Yes Yes, I finished. 2:22 later. Sweet baby Jesus. That was a long episode. And honestly, for all the hoopla online about who was going to die, based on some rumors that death was upon us, I felt underwhelmed. But, jsut as I did with Dr Strange, I separated the episode itself from the hype machine around it, and looked at it for what it was. An … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- July 2nd

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
