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 23rd

Literally, the shortest list I’ve done so far. There’s actually almost no point to this list. That’s how sad it was.

In the 7th episode, Wiki fell for a Lunch lord who she thought would be her basic whisperer and teach her the ways common folk think. Add to that an always a welcome appearance by Andrew Rannells, and a song that was basically just the girls asking each other if … Continue reading The Too Much TV Roundup- July 17th

Five Great Suggestions For The Next ‘Doctor Who’

Matt Smith was basically plucked from obscurity, but if Doctor Who chooses another Doctor… let them at least consider these five wonderful candidates: 1) Chiwetel Ejiofor Let’s have a black Doctor. Let’s just do it, and screw the people who think the Doctor can’t be black. Chiwetel has been churning in character actor mode for years, but an occasional lead (like Kinky Boots) proves he’s got what it takes to be a leading man. Take him to that next level. 2) Tom Hiddleston Obviously, Loki would be better suited as a villain, but Tom’s star is rising because of his … Continue reading Five Great Suggestions For The Next ‘Doctor Who’
