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
I managed some television today, so the rankings won’t be so boring for the 3 of you I’m sure read this post. It’s all for you. One love. 1) The Terminal List (Amazon) English Audio Description?: Yes Well, spoilers I guess. But in Episode 5, which is not the finale, Reese managed to go after the guy responsible for his brain tumor. And he did it. In the 5th episode. That kind of felt like the big boss at the end, but a well timed car bomb, and a little sidewalk shootout took care of his guards and out King … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- September 6th
Only three shows today. However, despite the fact I’ve talked previously to a handful of people “in the know”, none of them knew what I knew that came true yesterday. Showtime is now fully integrated as an add on to Paramount Plus, meaning you don’t need two different apps. This bodes well for audio description, which I will be complaining about post haste, as Yellowjackets at least (which is known to have existing description recorded) had none. 1) The Orville (Hulu) English Audio Description?: Yes I had no idea where we were going with this episode. Honestly, I didn’t know … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- August 31st
Welcome. I finally rolled out enough shows to make this list a bit more interesting. So, six shows enter, only one can win. Two were season finales, with one potentially suspected as a series finale. We shall see. 1) The Orville (Hulu) English Audio Description?: Yes in Twice in A Lifetime we saw a device that allowed time travel, which instantly let us all know… this will be a thing. it ended up sending Gordon 400 years back in the past, and gave us a frustrating but very interesting concept of time travel, and whether or not things are how … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- August 26th
Five shows today. one of them is Marvel. Did it hit the top? 1) Solar Opposites (Hulu) English Audio Description?: Yes Essentially, Solar Opposites has created this secondary universe within its own show that we care about in almost the same way Pinky and the Brain caught on as a spinoff from Anamaniacs. Here, I think spinning them off could be a mistake. Not knowing the ins and outs of all the characters within the wall really makes for this bizarrely entertaining side trip whenever the show decides to take it. Add to that, the Hululand references, which were all … Continue reading The Too Much tV Roundup- August 18th
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
