Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2021 April 25

I have Declined Counting of the Arrowverse shows, since there is such a small number of them this week, with Supergirl going to Prom and Black Lightning embezzling from his.  The Midwives are also back, fifty years ago, and if you wanted to travel even further back into alternate histories, The Nevers are trying to expand their Orphanage through the use of one of the Touched’s talents.  If you just want to pretend to be in the past, The Blacklist needs historic codebreaking, so we get an enigma machine involved.  The Hadmaiden’s tale returns for season four to bring some historic(-ish) politics into our week, and The Good Doctor moves from health related hot topics to current politics as it treats two gunshot victims.

  1. Supergirl reminds me of Golden Age DC comics, in that it is fun, but leaves everything resembling physics and logic behind.
