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

As the first week past the Vernal Equinox, spring is here!  The season finale of American Gods lands this week as we can see if Wednesdays preparations were enough.  Batwoman gets a chance to see much of a batwoman she really is.  Pennyworth and Black Lightning don’t get use a description, but the titles suggest Pennyworth has a drink, and Black Lightning appears to indicate a returning character.  The Flash has the episode that would have been the season premier if it hadn’t been delayed.  Superman & Lois promise us the best of the ten seasons of the previous Superman show (and I am all for that.)  Other comic book inspired television gives us Riverdale’s kids staff now coping has a dark and grim defeats.  The Falcon and The Winter Soldier appears to be following WandaVisions path and not giving us a description or even an episode title before the show drops.  The Good Doctor also attempts to take on another very difficult topic as Shaun and Lea decides how to handle an unplanned life change.  The Blacklist appears to go geocaching, which will be great to get everyone in the mood to go hike now that spring has arrived.  While I tend to skip the animated shows in this write up, if you have an eight and twelve year old set of little girls at home who likes non-English based superhero animation, you’ll be happy to hear that Miraculous season four will premier this week, too.
