Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2022 March 20

A slower week, but if Robot Chicken’s visit to St., Olaf, The Good Doctor’s visit to a long term care facility, Superman and Lois’s visit with John Henry, The Flash’s trust of a suspected murderer, and The Blacklists’ Task Force visit with an escort service doesn’t keep you entertained, Bridgerton’s second season also drops at the end of the week.  It’s not exactly genre, unless you are willing to accept that Bridgerton exists the way Dark City exists.

  1. Superman started off with some emotional punches, huh?

    Why can’t the guy who can fly faster than light and lift mountains catch more than one person at a time before they fly away lazily?

    Super-Manners Tip: If you have to duck out of a meeting for a family emergency, poke your head in and say “Hey, guys, family emergency. Be back as soon as I can!” Then fly away to be a hero. Kids these days…

    • And when you suspect there could be trouble down at the old mine, don’t wait until your father-in-law confirms he’s out of touch with the team. Just zip out.

      I keep wanting to review the season to date but it feels so…. mediocre. Not bad, mind you. The cast is solid. The effects are decent. It’s just not especially compelling.

      • It has it moments, but it feels a bit too stretched out. Like we’re eight episodes in, but this could easily have been crammed into four episodes.
