Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2020 March 8

Coming in like a lion, the Deserted Crowd of Disguise and Costume roar back onto the breakroom boobtube, and Batwoman realizes she should smile a bit more, Supergirl will always love you, Black Lightning finishes his season, The Flash finishes off the Speed Force, and The Legends meet up with a non-spider-powered Mr. Parker.  Saul takes up Yoga and finds inner peace.  Things are looking up for Neil deGrasse Tyson, as his second season of Cosmos returns with two episodes.  The other type of Good Doctor takes two recently broken up doctors and makes them work together on a small problem.  Someone does their best to keep the Riverdale “teens” from getting back to the screen.  To round out the week, we also get Picard learning what really caused the demise of the red planet.

  1. Since Picard ends with a two-part finale, I’m going to wait until next week to review the four episodes that fall between the previous review and the finale. But I’m sure people have opinions….

    • I loved Episode 7 of Picard as it felt like it had pulled the threads together into a cohesive narrative. It also cleared up how the borg queen got away but this also created other plot holes with ST continuity.
