Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2 February 2020

With Arrow’s departure, his Devestated Comrades mostly managed to pick up the pieces, except for a few who took the week off for funeral leave.  Black Lightning and his kids join the enemies side, while The Flash remembers he’s married and helps his wife while he mourns.  The Legends take off for 1947 to be gangsta.  The other comic spawned show (Riverdale) tells us a very gender specific tale of honor.   In space, The Doctor returns to Earth, but surprisingly it’s in India, not London.  I guess The Doctor expects the Midwives to handle any calls without help.  It sounds easy enough, since they mostly expect to go see a movie.  This leaves Picard to go off into space with his former crew.  (Not that one, the crew after that one.)
