Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2021 November 14

The new blood arrives, as Riverdale, The Flash, and Star Trek: Discovery all return to the table.  In Riverdale, the show shifts to Rivervale, which sounds like a soft reboot.  The Flash starts up it’s eighth season with an Armageddon sized bang.  Discovery joins Prodigy with a complete lack of information other than episode number.  The Doctor continue to explore a planet that seems to somehow be the source of time.  The Good Doctor steps up to make it clear it’s not about a Time Lord with an episode about one heart.  The Legends of Tomorrow show up somewhere new and unknown, and meet a god in the bathroom.  Batwoman does some gardening.  Blacklist has Dembe discovering the downsides of working for the FBI.  Foundation gives us their season finale.

    Doom Patrol‘s third season has ended and, despite the initial appearances of where this season would go, it looks likely they’ll be back for another season. They’ve also, in-universe, finally called themselves “Doom Patrol”…. almost.

    The review of the rest of the season will appear as soon as I’m less busy.

  2. Star Trek: Discovery was everything I love about Star Trek, and I am guessing about it evergreen I can.

    I’ll be posting a review today. Maybe we could alternate reviews? I liked it, but I wasn’t as enamored with this season’s premiere as I’d hoped I’d be.

  4. I would enjoy writing reviews, if only to counterpoint you’re lack of enamorment, but I am not 100% sure I can commit to actually seeing and typing up a review. My wife and I watch it together, so that’s twice the schedules that need to line up.
