Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 21 April 2019

Another busy week as we rush headlong into the ending of the regular broadcast seasons.  The American Gods give us some Mad Sweeney backstory.  We get a calm evening at Winterfell on Game of Thrones.  In the Decidedly Comprehensive corner, Supergirl reads Dostoevsky’s first great novel, Arrow focuses on Diggle, the Legends send unsolicited emojis, the Flash brings back their winter villains, and Doom Patrol lets Cyborg perform an upgrade.  In Riverdale, the Easter themed little sister is still missing, and on Cloak and Dagger, Tyrone rolls up a new character sheet.  Orville has to deal with the fallout from last week’s temporal shenanigans.  For fans of slightly less genre specific shows, She-Ra and the Princesses of Power is scheduled to make a return, and Cobra Kai kicks off season 2 this week, also!
