Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2022 January 9

“When are my CW shows Dropping?” Complains my fellow bureaucrats.  Well, good news, that week is this week!  First, we have the most drastic of circumstances in the most gentle way possible as Call the Midwife deals with some devastating diagnosis.  Superman & Lois come back for season two, setting the scenes for smalltown drama.  Meanwhile on Tatooine, Boba Fett and Agent May continue to try to consolidate power.  The Legends pick their season up as Sara realizes they aren’t exactly good for the timeline (No word on if Marvin actually makes an appearance.)  Batwoman gives us some of Renee’s backstory.  Star Trek: Prodigy reveals some more of the ships backstory.  The Blacklist plays tennis.  We also get the series finale in an extra long episode that I expect will have trouble wrapping up all the available plot lines.

    There is a new show on the CW based on a DC comic. : Naomi. The CW DC shows haven’t been something that I have been following for a bit but thought there might be other who would be interested in it.

    • I haven’t heard anything at all about this show, and as a non-DC reader I don’t even recognize the character. What is this?

      • JD DeLuzio says:

        In the comic, she goes by “Powerhouse,” and she’s from an alt-earth. She has some kind of energy-manipulation powers, but I don’t know much else about her, as she’s of very recent origin (the 2000-teens).

        Superman and Lois, characters we have heard of, will get a review of the underwhelming season two premiere later today and then, probably, series reviews at mid-season and finale time.

  2. Peacekeeper also dropped today, apparently it wasn’t on my “Watch” list. Neither was How I Met Your Father, but I don’t think that’s Genre and don’t know if it’s any good yet.
