Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2021 September 5

Does the same old, same old make you a Depressed Consumer of television?  Well, I have a devil of a great announcement, as both Robot Chicken and Lucifer return to give you something different to watch, and The Boys has another “News” special.  Also, if the infernal puns about Lucifer episodes bother you, this is the final season so those should be going away too!  Evil also gives us an cranial anatomy lesson, and American Horror Story examines their town’s history.  If you aren’t into the darkness, you can enjoy some animation on Star Trek: Lower Decks, Miraculous, My Hero Acadamia, and What If, which appears to be bringing the first half of the show together.  Staying with the comics, The Legends end their season basedon a wacky plan from the teams alternative pharmacist, Stargirl hits some stormy weather, Supergirl fights urban renewal, and the Titans explore democracy.  In Riverdale, everyone’s favorite cat themed musicians return.  In See find true north.  SurrealEstate has a wedding.
