Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2021 March 28

At first, I was surprised to see so many new titles, but I think we actually end up with a Decreased Count.  Superman takes the week off to give room for his cousin Supergirl to start her sixth season.  Batwoman admitted that Kate is gone, and starts picking up the pieces.  Pennyworth doesn’t give us a description, but the impending execution implied by the title makes it forgivable, and the Flash faces fears fostered by his foe.  Zoey and her Extraordinary Playlist return, exploring her memory.  The Good Doctor has Claire getting a visit from her deadbeat dad.  On Riverdale, Archie is visited by his former Army general.  The Falcon and the Winter Soldier doesn’t offer us a description either, but if the implications from last week’s episode are to be believed, we will pay a visit to an MCU antagonist.  Red works against his Task Force when they go for one of his contacts.
