Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2022 January 23

Feels like a short week, as Superman & Lois start off trying not to name the big bad in the mines (or JD has followed a red herring.)  Naomi gets her training montage this week.  The Legends go to a Time Travels bar, and I hope we get some nods to my other favorite time travelers.  (At least a police box or Delorean parked out front.)  Batwoman has a modified status quo, and spends the episode learning to live in it.  Boba Fett, Peacemaker, and Star Trek’s Prodigies all give us my most anticipated new episodes this week, but no descriptions.

  1. Hey, it would be great if I’m following red herrings. Doomsday’s been done to death (heheheheh) and, for that matter, Sarah having (1) shared a same-sex kiss at summer camp and (2) an unconventional female friend wouldn’t necessarily mean much of anything in the real word. And the first season did mislead us with “Captain Luthor.” But it’s the CW, so they’re generally under suspicion of being predictable until they prove otherwise.

    • Oh, I don’t doubt you at all. My instinct with a good show is to see the obvious thing they are going for, then figure that if I saw it, they must be planning to make me think I saw it and it’s a feint.

      …but this is the CW.

      • Actually, nice misdirection for CW. In a bizarre twist, it’s not Doomsday, which is why they were so quick to “leak” Doomsday online. And Sarah and Jordan are staying together for now (with the option to give her a girlfriend in the future if that doesn’t work out).

  2. The Book of Boba Fett’s title is a spoiler. Without it, the opening scene (and its tiny fake out) hit in exactly the way they wanted it to, and I loved it.
