Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2020 April 5

The superheroes, having found themselves all in the same universe, are being responsible and staying in their own lairs and not returning, yet.  If you want superpowers, you are going to have to get by on either Zoey as she helps her dad’s caregiver, or the robots of Westworld as they continue to try a corporate takeover.  If neither are real heroes to you, we do get another double dose of science as Neil deGrasse Tyson explores quantum mechanics and political involvement in science.  There’s villains, as Jimmy plays Bagman on Better Call Saul, and Red takes the Blacklist to Alaska.  If you’ve got your kids with you, the DuckTales get to play Bond.
