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

Plenty of new shows this week!  The Doctor gives us a pirate battle with the Sea Devils.  Russian Doll drops a new season (no word on if it involves anything Ukrainian,) as does Better Call Saul, but only the first two episodes.  Riverdale turns Archie into a folk hero.  The Good Doctor gets mechanical and meta.  The Blacklist finally acknowledges that Red is actually in charge.  We also get new Moon Knight, Young Justice, Picard, and Halo, but no advanced descriptions.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2022 April 10

I hope you recovered from last week’s table from our site’s favorite Jovial Disciple, but there isn’t much information to give you this week.  Riverdale’s announces plans to get rid of its gangs.  Robot Chicken ends its season in typical Robot Chicken fashion.  The Flash and Chester work on the problem while Caitlin makes things worse.  The Blacklist’s task force is shaken when one of them actually is subject to the laws they enforce.  We also have The Good Doctor going to a potluck, but otherwise Moon Knight, Picard, Young Justice, and Halo give us episodes they want us to go into blind.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2022 April 3

Robot Chicken visits the Mayo Clinic.  During Superman’s absence, Lois and Lana grow closer, as Chloe Sullivan becomes more entangled with Ally Allston’s cult. Joe Pesci makes a guest appearance as a mysterious new student at Smallville High. Will Sarah be enticed by his charms? The Flash raises a ruckus at a karaoke bar in Hawaii.  The Blacklist searches for people in the entertainment industry believed to be affiliated with communism. Picard, still stranded in 2024, stops at a Starbucks and realizes he’s in the wrong show. Moon Knight drops his pants. The cast of Riverdale recovers from a recent orgy.

Super Friends drops on Amazon Prime. This is not a revisiting of the 70s series, but an animated take on the classic 90s sitcom, in which the six superficially charming New Yorkers develop superpowers and use the Central Perk as the base for their crime-fighting operations.

MCU Review: Hawkeye

We’re only getting to the Disney+ Marvel shows now, and we decided to start with the “Christmas one.” Short version: the acting and production are solid, the leads have great chemistry, the story keeps moving, and it features a killer holiday soundtrack.

If you want a more detailed review, read on. You will encounter some minor spoilers, though I’ve avoided the more serious ones.

Bureau 42 Review – Spider-Man: No Way Home [Spoiler-free]

I did my best to avoid spoilers before seeing this moving, ignoring the barrage of rumors, news articles, and news articles about rumors, even avoiding trailers until one was sprung on me before an unrelated movie.  I am going to keep this review Spoiler-Free, and I ask everyone to do so in the comments as best as you can.  I don’t want anyone afraid to Continue reading →

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

Is it me, or do we have less to watch this week?  It could be because I am so behind I am not noticing the new things that need to be added, so always feel free to suggest something in the comments.  We do have eight new episodes of The Witcher, which my eldest daughter and wife have been eagerly anticipating.  Riverdale will have its 100th episode.  Hawkeye gives us the penultimate episode.  The Wheel of Time’s revolutions gives us revelations.  Young Justice and Star Trek: Discovery are fuzzy on the details, but The Expanse wasn’t this week, telling us about the Rocinante being the linchpin for the war.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2021 December 5

There are a lot of old favorites returning this week, but first Doctor Who’s Season of Flux comes to a close.  The Flash’s event season continues, and I admit I hadn’t quite realized it was an event season until this description, and we get guest stars a plenty.  Guest stars continue to show up, as Riverdale is visited by a fan favorite Netflix witch.  The Wheel of Time has multiple faceoffs.  The Blacklist is the only other show to give us a description, telling us about an old crime family in therapy.  Hawkeye and Discovery also have new episodes, which don’t need descriptions to get me interested in them.  Adding to the list of description-less shows I am thrilled to watch, The Expanse returns for season six.

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

I hope everyone has a quiet week with family, regardless of last week’s turkey consumption, because this week is lighter on television.  This week, Lost in Space will drop its third and final season.  The Doctor continues to uncover her past while sorting out The Flux, The Flash visits The Hall of Justice with Black Lightning, Riverdale makes Rivervale make tough choices,  Young Justice gives us some magic, and The Legends give us a Bebbo Christmas special.  Wheel of Time introduce some new faces.  We don’t get synopsis, but I am still most interested in Hawkeye and the crew of Star Trek: Discovery.
