Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2020 November 29

If the delay is the new seasons have you depressed, take heart in the fact that between Discovery and Mandalorian we are getting some of the best examples of the two biggest franchises in our genre.  This week, Discovery travels to Books homeworld, and Mando continues to reel back from learning that The Child has a name.  His Dark Materials has our kids quest to retrieve their golden compass.  The Good Doctor struggles with teaching.  If you are still looking for animation the Ducks have Scrooge and Santa Claus team up, and the Daleks continue their game of cat and mouse in the universe of 90’s level CGI.
