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

It’s a good thing all of those shows ended last week, it saves room for some animated offerings, as Spider-Man goes up against Rhino, the Lower Decks crew gets into some time travel hijinks, and the Muppets oversleep.  If you are looking for something a bit more traditional on the Breakroom Television, be sure to catch part one of Lucifer’s fifth season, as his brother shows up to wreck everything Lucifer has enjoyed.

  1. Watching Lower Decks, my 11 year old comes in and says “Why are you watching Rick and Morty?”

    …. I don’t know, I really don’t.

    Lucifer, on the other hand, was awesome. I loved the writing, I loved the characters, I just don’t know why Michael has a broken right arm but Lucifer doesn’t. It looks like he hurt his arm and can’t do anything with it, but they were hiding it, but if that was the case, wouldn’t Lucifer have the same issue?
