Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2021 April 18

Spring seems to have recoiled a bit, as temperatures (at least in my portion of the globe) have turned Distractingly Chilly, much like the number of shows from the Arrowverse, as Batwoman hypocritically chases violent law breakers in masks, Black Lightning talks to the Feds, and Supergirl actually name drops Super Friends.  HBO continues exploring the world of Whedonesque X-Steampunk while they try to come out to society.  Call the Midwife returns for a tenth’s season, this time with more Thalidomide.  Zoey gets her lady friends together.  The Good Doctor also decides to be gender based, but we won’t know how until we watch it.  The Blacklist threatens us with a clip show over the series star who left the show.  The biggest event is most likely the season finale of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, concluding the Bucky/Sam road trip movie fans begged for.
