Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2021 February 21

There’s a new arrival as Superman and Lois launches their Pilot this week, though there is no sign of his cousin’s show returning.  Elsewhere, Delayed by COVID, Batwoman views some disgusting art and Black Lightning’s wife makes a breakthrough.  Meanwhile, in the MCU, we can see what the newly revealed theme song can give us on WandaVision.  Before we’re out of the comics, be sure we check in with the American Gods as Shadow and his estranged wife explore small town life, and Gizmoduck appears on DuckTales.  Now that we are out of the comic section, Riverdale turns the “kids” to teachers so they don’t need to build new sets.  The Good Doctor deals with ransomware, which I expect will give the IT guys like me watching the show the same reaction a real-world doctor does when watching surgery scenes.  On The Blacklist, some job opportunities present themselves.
