Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2022 October 2

As we enter the spookiest month of the year, we also get a returning tale of a batty butler, as Pennyworth opens its third season with three episodes.  It joins House of the Dragon, Andor, She-Hulk, Star Trek: Lower Decks, and Rings of Power is leaving us wondering what the episodes will be about.  The Handmaid’s plot is that June and Luke take a trip as Serena starts a new job.  Stargirl is neglecting her job at the JSA,  In See, the bombs start blowing as Tormada and Siberth attack Pennsa.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2022 September 18

The House of the Dragon has their hallway sconces fixed this week as they ‘Light the Way.’  The Handmaid’s Tale gives us a proper description to let us know a rebel outpost is richer by one June and Moira.  Stargirl brings some old school guest stars to find a new suspect for their murder investigation.  On See, we see a siege at the House of Enlightenment.  She Hulk and the Lower Decks, and the Rings of the Power don’t offer us a description, but we get new episodes.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2022 September 11

At the House of the Dragons, you’ll have to dodge returning war champions and suitors for the princess, but once you do you can catch up with the Handmaids as they return to their Tale with two episodes, one in the morning, and one at the ballet.  Stargirl investigates the murder, while her dad deals with being out of a job.  She-Hulk, the Lower Decks in Star Trek, and the Rings of Power all offer new episodes without descriptions, but See ironically gives us the most view into their episode as their explosives explode, either through popularity with the rulers or sabotage.  Primal ends its season with the Echoes of Eternity.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2022 September 4

We are in a golden age of fantastic prequels, at least I hope so.  I haven’t caught up with the House Lord of the Ringing Dragon Power prequels yet, but we know that classic series never get disappointing prequels.  The House of the Dragon’s third episode gives us the Second of His Name, and the Rings of Power doesn’t give us any clues.  Stargirl begins suspecting their small town neighbors.  She-Hulk and Lower Decks both leave us guessing, but See tells us we see Wren warn of war as the Witchfinder’s revolt.  If you’re butt wasn’t kicked sufficiently, take a visit to Cobra Kai for their fifth season to see if a sequel is more your thing.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2022 August 28

It is another light week, especially if you’re down a couple of televisions and are temporarily sharing a room with a child too use to watch the House of the Dragon receive some prophecies.  Stargirl starts season three with a murder and sketchy allies from last season.  She-Hulk and Star Talk: Lower Decks both forgo descriptions, but our future primitives of See sees our stars set off to reunite, and our Primal primitives give us the second half of The Colossaeus.  Mystery Science Theater 3000 watch a swinging sixties story of a woman trying to replace men in leadership roles.

[ETA:} The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2022 August 21

Only a handful of shows this week, She-Hulk and Primal return from last week, and Star Trek: Lower Decks and See bring back their third season each.  Unfortunately, the only thing close to a description for the episodes is Primal telling us the title, The Colossaeus.  (Yes, it was double checked; that was not a misspelling.)

[Edited to add:] Apparently I had my head in the sand, and House of the Dragon started this week, too.  Thanks for catching that!

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

The Table is down to only six this week, and descriptions are down to two.  That is only if the short existential poetry of this week’s Westworld a description can be counted as a discription.  Before that Evil takes their show on the road.  Ms. Marvel gives us her fifth episode, and The Orville gives us “Twice in a lifetime” which one could guess is a title for a time-loop episode.  The Boys and Strange New Worlds both end their seasons this week, as well.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2022 June 26

It’s been busy so I haven’t had much time to get into the breakroom to catch up, but some of this week’s entries are really catching my eye.  First, we get the cast of Evil facing off against a Demon of Sex1.  Riverdale also faces off with the biblical, but it doesn’t sound nearly as much fun.  Westworld returns, however it isn’t giving us any clue what we’ll be getting.  Superman and Lois show the power of the press as the world is ending.  Ms. Marvel doesn’t give us a description or even a title.  The Flash finishes his season in the second half of a fatal finale.  The Orville doubles their Moclan children.  The Boys take a candle to bed.  Star Trek: Strange New Worlds quotes Tolkien at us.  Then, to wrap up the week, Stranger Things wraps up it’s fourth season with two more episodes.
