Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2021 June 7

If you didn’t get enough comics on your breakroom television, I have good news for you! Not only Did CW come back, bringing us a Constantine episode, Batwoman focuses on Luke Fox’s story, The Flash bids farewell to a series regular from the beginning, and Superman and Lois figure out why their show’s big bad is in Smallville in the first place, but Marvel gives us a time-hopping, What If…? styled story centered around the villain that was so popular he gets to resurrect a few times and become a hero, Loki!  In other stores, we get The Good Doctor’s season finale in Guatemala, the Handmaid’s penultimate episode, and some cartoons.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2021 April 18

Spring seems to have recoiled a bit, as temperatures (at least in my portion of the globe) have turned Distractingly Chilly, much like the number of shows from the Arrowverse, as Batwoman hypocritically chases violent law breakers in masks, Black Lightning talks to the Feds, and Supergirl actually name drops Super Friends.  HBO continues exploring the world of Whedonesque X-Steampunk while they try to come out to society.  Call the Midwife returns for a tenth’s season, this time with more Thalidomide.  Zoey gets her lady friends together.  The Good Doctor also decides to be gender based, but we won’t know how until we watch it.  The Blacklist threatens us with a clip show over the series star who left the show.  The biggest event is most likely the season finale of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, concluding the Bucky/Sam road trip movie fans begged for.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2021 April 11

I hope you Didn’t Count out the Arrowverse, because they’re back on the Television Table this week, as Batwoman faces Black Mask, Pennyworth gets Salty, Black Lightning brings Painkiller back (didn’t we already announce this episode?,) The Flash faces frosty foes, and Supergirl faces the largest letdown in prequel history.  Marvel doesn’t want to be forgotten, and drops the penultimate episode of Falcon and the Winter Soldier of Friday.  If you like animation, Miraculous, Invincible, and My Hero Academia also give us new episodes.  If you are trying to stay away from super heroes, there’s Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist where she sees a medium, and Red takes a break from the Blacklist to visit rural America.

[Edited to add] The Nevers, which is basically Joss Whedon’s Victorian School for Gifted Youngsters, which dropped on Sunday as well.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2021 April 4

No foolin’, it’s April already.  Easter and Bunny Day for those who celebrate those.  Seems like a short week for television, with even less descriptions.  Invincible was added to the list, but without any description, it feels like it wasn’t worth the effort.  At least it’s in good company with the Falcon, Winter Soldier, Pennyworth, and My Hero Academia.  Zoey, at least, tells us it’s her birthday, and our Dueling Compatriots of The Flash and Supergirl tell us that Cisco and Chester return to the 90 to do their Ground Hog Day episode, and Supergirl gives us vague descriptions of their typical show.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2021 March 28

At first, I was surprised to see so many new titles, but I think we actually end up with a Decreased Count.  Superman takes the week off to give room for his cousin Supergirl to start her sixth season.  Batwoman admitted that Kate is gone, and starts picking up the pieces.  Pennyworth doesn’t give us a description, but the impending execution implied by the title makes it forgivable, and the Flash faces fears fostered by his foe.  Zoey and her Extraordinary Playlist return, exploring her memory.  The Good Doctor has Claire getting a visit from her deadbeat dad.  On Riverdale, Archie is visited by his former Army general.  The Falcon and the Winter Soldier doesn’t offer us a description either, but if the implications from last week’s episode are to be believed, we will pay a visit to an MCU antagonist.  Red works against his Task Force when they go for one of his contacts.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2021 March 21

As the first week past the Vernal Equinox, spring is here!  The season finale of American Gods lands this week as we can see if Wednesdays preparations were enough.  Batwoman gets a chance to see much of a batwoman she really is.  Pennyworth and Black Lightning don’t get use a description, but the titles suggest Pennyworth has a drink, and Black Lightning appears to indicate a returning character.  The Flash has the episode that would have been the season premier if it hadn’t been delayed.  Superman & Lois promise us the best of the ten seasons of the previous Superman show (and I am all for that.)  Other comic book inspired television gives us Riverdale’s kids staff now coping has a dark and grim defeats.  The Falcon and The Winter Soldier appears to be following WandaVisions path and not giving us a description or even an episode title before the show drops.  The Good Doctor also attempts to take on another very difficult topic as Shaun and Lea decides how to handle an unplanned life change.  The Blacklist appears to go geocaching, which will be great to get everyone in the mood to go hike now that spring has arrived.  While I tend to skip the animated shows in this write up, if you have an eight and twelve year old set of little girls at home who likes non-English based superhero animation, you’ll be happy to hear that Miraculous season four will premier this week, too.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2021 π Day

With math on the mind, the Dividend Calculators at the CW are managing to get their shows out despite obvious cautionary changes to the productions.  While Batwoman debates the merits of not winnowing down the cast further, Pennyworth doesn’t mind bringing his together.  Black Lightning swaps actresses, but potentially scares away some cast, The Flash brings back Ralph’s would-be-wife, but leave the cancelled cast member off the story, Superman and Lois decide they can be safer by just going outside and take in some highschool football while they are there, and the “kids” of Riverdale all stop to wonder just what it is they are actually doing.  If you still think you need precautions, you can always say a prayer to the American Gods, but don’t expect a response; they are pretty busy solidifying their alliances for the war.  Did you enjoy your week off last week without WandaVision?  Well, I hope you got your rest in, because this Friday they next MCU television series launches as The Falcon and the Winter Soldier start their buddy story.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2021 February 28

More of the comic shows are returning, Despite Corona, even if in typical Flash timing, he’s late.  His season premier is really the conclusion to last season.  Batwoman gives us an episode wish to earn the adjective “late”, and Superman & Lois take up residence back in Clark’s small villa.  Black Lightning faces his big bad to say to leave him alone, because that always works out as expected.  American Gods get a lot of surprises for beings claiming omniscience.  WandaVision gives us a finale for a series that seemed easily dismissed at first, but has gained popularity enough that you have to stay offline on Fridays until you see the episode if you want to avoid spoilers.  The Blacklist brings back Elizabeth, at lease according to the “next week on” segment.
