Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 28 April 2019

In our breakroom this week, if we are aren’t to busy discussing the big game, we can watch the war escalated for the American Gods, or watch it actually happen in Game of Thrones.  The seasons are winding down for the CW shows, as Supergirl remains hunted, Arrow pretends to be a true crime story, the Legends are all about couples, Nora goes rogue on The Flash, and Cyborg gets to Doom Patrol for ants.  In Riverdale, we get some adults’ idea of what a high school prom looks like.  Cloak and Dagger gets deep into sex trafficking.
