Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2022 July 17

The summer lump may not be a thing now that we are in the era of streaming, but apparently we are spending a week revisiting things the way they used to be.  Evil returns to its Evil ways with demons offering you fun suggestions.  Riverdale delves into Percival’s back story.  Westworld wants to let the old die.  Better Call Saul tries to close loose ends with the cartel.  The Orville doesn’t offer us a description, but seems to planning to redecorate.  Mystery Science Theater 3000 also revisits its roots by giving us some kaiju on kaiju fights.  If you want to go way, way back to the cavemen, Primal also returns.

  1. I still haven’t seen the current season of Westworld. ….Saul isn’t exactly our genre, but it’s one of the best things on television, and the previous episode pulled few punches.

    Gamera vs Jiger was the first Gamera movie I ever saw. I think I’d be interested in seeing its MST 3000 incarnation, all these years later.

    Holding out hope for Paper Girls, which starts on July 29.
