Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2021 August 8

Did you rest up the last two weeks?  We have plenty of new shows for you to watch!  First, Don’t Count out the shows from the the house that Kent built, as Kent visits his high school sweetheart while his son gets close with his wife’s alternate-universe husband.  The Legends go bowling.  Stargirl and Titans both start their next seasons, while copes with being being a golden age superhero while being in school.  The Titans don’t give us descriptions for their first three episodes, but based on the titles, we get either Batgirl or Oracle, Red Hood, and Hank and Dove’s return.  If CW shows returning is your thing, Riverdale’s got your back with a post-prison break roundup.  If you prefer the other side of the of the Comic universes, Marvel takes its Cinematic Universe and and tweaks it, starting the animated What If story with Peggy Carter became Captain America.  If you prefer to stay away from the comics entirely, but still want a new season, Lower Deck’s brings us animated, comedic Star Trek.  There’s new episodes of Miraculous, Bad Batch, and My Hero Academia.  Finally, if you like your shows coming out in last decade’s style, there’s SurrealEstate’s visit to a rapper’s studio.  (Don’t forget last week’s review!)
