Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 13 October 2019

It’s getting Distressingly Crowded on the CW, as Arrow returns to stand along side Batwoman, Supergirl, Black Lightning, Flash, and Jorah Mormont Bruce Wayne (on Titans.)  If you aren’t feeling super heroic, The Good Doctor gives us a conspiracy theorist, and if you are feeling villainous, the killers at camp American Horror Story are preparing for a bad guy on bad guy fight, Red offers us some bad flowers on his Blacklist, and those wholesome American kids of Riverdale start their extra curricular activities.
