Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 20 October 2019

I hope you didn’t have any other plans, as there is plenty of television to keep those of us unpopular enough not to have Halloween party invites busy. If the Dire Crisis of Batwoman, Supergirl, Arrow, Flash, and maybe Black Lightning and the Titans coupled with the horror of 1984, Riverdale, the return of Castle Rock and watching The Good Doctor try to get to second base is took much, Will and Grace also will return to lighten the mood.  Personally, The Blacklist cheers me up pretty well, too.

  1. Last week’s Titans has Jorah Wayne dancing with topless girls and doing the Batusi. That is not things I expected to see DC putting into their properties in 2019.
