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

There are a lot of old favorites returning this week, but first Doctor Who’s Season of Flux comes to a close.  The Flash’s event season continues, and I admit I hadn’t quite realized it was an event season until this description, and we get guest stars a plenty.  Guest stars continue to show up, as Riverdale is visited by a fan favorite Netflix witch.  The Wheel of Time has multiple faceoffs.  The Blacklist is the only other show to give us a description, telling us about an old crime family in therapy.  Hawkeye and Discovery also have new episodes, which don’t need descriptions to get me interested in them.  Adding to the list of description-less shows I am thrilled to watch, The Expanse returns for season six.

  1. So, I actually pulled down Riverdale, because Sabrina. I haven’t watched the show since season 3. I’m three minutes into the show, and they’ve focused on this redhead getting dressed more than a Fan Service anime would.

    • 36 minutes in before the show Sabrinas. If you are a fan of the Chilling Adventures and a completionist, but have no interest in this show, you can skip to 35 minutes in and watch from there. Also, they make it clear this takes place after Chilling Adventures.
