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

It’s a very happy, full table this week!  Those who weren’t happy with Jodie Whittaker can be happy today as she is leaving the role, and fans can be happy that we get a new episode of Doctor Who.  The kids will be happy, as Miraculous returns for a few episodes from its fifth season. The House of the Dragon’s season hasn’t ended, so watchers can happily meet the Black Queen.  The fang-bangers can be happy with a new episode for both their shows, as Let the Right One In lets the cast learn what else is going on.  Louis and Molloy read Claudia’s diaries in the Interview with a Vampire.  The Handmaid’s Tale give June an opportunity while Serena loses some.  Andor continues to keep its secrets.  Stargirl finishes it’s two parter with a new powerset.  American Horror Story gives us two episodes, no NYPD, and newly rooted evil.  Lower Decks tells us nothing.  Pennyworth does some gardening.  Jonah and the bots watch The Mask, (not the Jim Carey one) in their Mystery Science Theater 3000.

  1. Another one: The Peripheral on Amazon Prime. Based on the novel by William Gibson. The first two episodes premiered last week. It is looking good and I’m enjoying it so far.

  2. I plan to start watching that in another week or so. We have a review of the novel here.

    I saw (most of) The Mask (1961) on TV in the 80s. Based on what I can recall, it’s a good choice for MST3K.

  3. Just saw a reference for a new episode of Star Trek: Prodigy on Oct 27th, “Asylum”. I did not see it on Trakt but imdb and thetvdb show it.

  4. I also see comments are no longer nested, so I’ll just combine comments in the future.

    I added Prodigy, that’s one I know my kids are looking forward to, too.

  5. The cups run over: Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi. All six mini-episodes premiere this week.

  6. Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi – S01E00 – Journey into the lives of two distinctly different Jedi from the prequel era – Ahsoka Tano and Count Dooku. Each will be put to the test as they make choices that will define their destinies.

    Each episode appears to be about fifteen minutes.

  7. Completely forgotten about that one, so thanks for the reminder. Looks like all six shorts in the run might be dropping today, so I might just go for a binge watch this weekend.
