Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2019 August 11

Did you wrap up your summer?  Ready to head back to school?  The shows are, as we have a season finally and two series finales.  Alfred says the name that makes superheroes stop fighting this week in a doubt header, Preacher is reflective in Masada.  Legion wraps up his show in the final episode of his third season.  Young Justice deals with betrayals.  The Handmaid has an episode 13 of a season my source thought was only twelve episodes long.  Krypton has Supergrandad ending his season with the climactic fight with General Zod.  Elementary lets Sherlock and Joan bow out gracefully.

    Uh……….

    I haven’t seen tonight’s season finale of Handmaid’s Tale yet, but that description doesn’t sound right.

    The finale of Elementary was….interesting. There really wasn’t much of a mystery and what there was was really just a framing narrative. It did serve to tie up a loose end or two, though. We even finally got to Watson writing about the adventures. As a denouement for the overall series, it basically of worked. Especially the “and life goes on even though things have changed” scene at the end.

    I got the feeling they wanted to get Moriarty back for at least a cameo but couldn’t for whatever reason. I’m not sure if that made things better or worse.

    • My wife and I loved the finale. It gave us them working together, and answered just about every question you could have about how their lives continued (and thus, would continue) after the show really ended last episode. It’s maybe one of my top three series finales, ever.
