Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2020 February 16

After the love hangover of last week, The Doctor takes us deep into historic literature, while Trixie works with a mother who can’t see how much help the Midwives are being.  The DC shows switch up a bit, while Batwoman has a crisis of sisters, Supergirl continues the visit from Season One Winn, while the Flash brings us an Elongated Man episode, and the Legends try to work Zari back into the show.  The Good Doctor keeps pitting his two girlfriends against each other, and our favorite retired Star Fleet admiral, with help from an attractive ex-Borg, visit the exciting site of Freecloud.
