Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2 February 2020

With Arrow’s departure, his Devestated Comrades mostly managed to pick up the pieces, except for a few who took the week off for funeral leave.  Black Lightning and his kids join the enemies side, while The Flash remembers he’s married and helps his wife while he mourns.  The Legends take off for 1947 to be gangsta.  The other comic spawned show (Riverdale) tells us a very gender specific tale of honor.   In space, The Doctor returns to Earth, but surprisingly it’s in India, not London.  I guess The Doctor expects the Midwives to handle any calls without help.  It sounds easy enough, since they mostly expect to go see a movie.  This leaves Picard to go off into space with his former crew.  (Not that one, the crew after that one.)

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 25 January 2020

The Judoon return to Doctor Who this week, bringing back a fan favorite rhinoceros-headed aliens.  Elsewhere in space, Picard continues to try to solve the mystery of Data’s daughter.  The Midwives are called to make a case for home service for births (instead of hospitals,) as well.  That’s just the start of this week’s shows.  Are you unable to cope with the Deluge?  Can’t keep up with all of these shows?  Good news, one of them is going away!  Arrow airs its finale this week, bringing eight years to a close for the show that started one of the most successful runs of DC properties in video.  Batwoman’s birthday even takes a back seat, Supergirl brings a season one star back, all the other heroes are still to busy to stop by Freeland to help their new friend Black Lightning, and the Legends skip this week to make room for a special set of postmortem interviews with Arrow creators.  Elsewhere, Archie Comics give us another episode of Riverdale, and the next season of Sabrina is still hanging out if you have more time to hang out in the Bureau’s Breakroom.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 12 January 2020

Are you recovered from your holidays?  Did you spend the last couple of weeks agonizing about the fate of the CW’s shows?  Why did we have to wait so long to find out if everything exists or not?  Good news, your Delay Ceases!  Arrow brings back the show before wrapping up on Legends.  We also have some medical missives with Midwives, Good Doctor, and of course, Doctor Who1.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 5 January 2020

You did see the first episode of Doctor Who, right?  The Doctor has saved us, and brought a Midwife back so we have something to watch.  Star Trek: Discovery also gives us a short trek, but this is another light week for you to catch up before that Dastardly Crisis comes for us next week.
