Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2020 October 11

It looks like the renovations are nearly complete, and the Bureau is looking pretty spiffy, huh?  I hope you’re enjoying the new look, as, unless you are into animation, there isn’t much to look at on the Breakroom Television.  Unless you saved some of Bly Manor from last week, you’ll have to wait 930 years for Discovery to return.

  1. So… what’s Primal like? I am interested in why it rated a mention here. Is it just really good?

      I really enjoy Primal. It was created by Genndy Tartakovsky. Cave man and dinosaur. No dialog. Lots of action & violence. It got three Emmy awards for “Outstanding Individual Achievement in Animation”

      You can find the original trailer at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0KFyVu514DY though it might be better to watch the first episodes to get more a feeling about the storytelling.

      In the grand scheme of things here, it is probably on the outskirts of what is considered genre. But I figure it is similar to how Duck Tales fits in. Especially with the lack of other genre content to watch for a bit.

    Didn’t know about the new look until you mentioned it, I mostly pay attention to the RSS feed. That said, is it supposed to be so bright? Or is that something on my end messing with the color scheme?

    Anyone watching Next on Hulu? Just saw this, wondering if it’s any good. Looks like the evil doppelganger to Person of Interest.

      I doubt I will. I still haven’t caught up on The Man in the High Castle and The Boys, two I really want to watch. I tried a couple episodes of Monsterland and, despite some strong acting talent, couldn’t get interested.

      It used to be nerdy types watched or at least knew a lot of the same shows because that’s all there was. Now? You’d have to spend your entire life seated in front of a screen in order to…. Well, I mean, even more than many people now spend their lives in front of screens.
