Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2020 August 23

So, this week, there is a new Trek and Mor– err.. Star Trek: Lower Decks and some more Muppets.  Presumably nobody wanted to compete with last week’s Lucifer drop, so nothing was coming out this week.

[All synopses (and titles) from Trakt.tv below the cut, except when there really aren’t any.  (If a show’s synopsis is a spoiler to you, do not click More…)]

Star Trek: Lower Decks – S01E04 – Moist Vessel – [No description given.]

Muppets Now – S01E05 – The I.T. Factor – Chip the I.T. guy installs an upgrade to Scooter’s overtaxed computer just as Scooter is beginning to upload the latest episode of Muppets Now. Scooter must work fast to get everything in place before the hard reboot goes into effect.  Miss Piggy takes a trip through the topic of travel with guests Linda Cardellini and Taye Diggs. Pepe the King Prawn makes up a new game show on the spot, and the contestants do their best to keep up. Uncle Deadly demonstrates the drama, disciplines, and danger of stage combat for Muppet fanboy, Walter. Dr. Bunsen Honeydew puts the pressure on his assistant, Beaker, with a hydraulic-press experiment that requires a personal touch.

    With that title, it’s highly likely the Lower Decks episode will be cringe inducing.

      I stopped watching after two weeks. I may check in now and then. It’s not terrible (good voice cast) but, honestly, it’s just not that good.

      Now, Tales from the Loop, on the other hand…. (full-season review forthcoming)
