Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2022 January 16

Well, if the end of The Expanse didn’t make you swear off our table, we have a few different newcomers, though neither seem to be aiming for quite the same niche.  Naomi (thanks again, visionary_coward!) joins The CW’s DC collection with her second episode sees Naomi grilling her parents.  If family television isn’t your thing, but you still want some DC action, Peacemaker’s second week (fourth episode) airs this week.  It is definitely not family friendly, but the opening credits should give you a good idea of how seriously they take everything.  Superman and Lois continues to try to find a direction for their second season.  The Legends turn their mansion into a 90s reality show, but in hell.  Batwoman is after the original Poison Ivy while the new one is still on the run.  The Blacklist tells us how Dembe joined the FBI.  We also have Midwives, Star Trek: Prodigy, and Boba Fett, but no details about what’s in their episodes.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2022 January 9

“When are my CW shows Dropping?” Complains my fellow bureaucrats.  Well, good news, that week is this week!  First, we have the most drastic of circumstances in the most gentle way possible as Call the Midwife deals with some devastating diagnosis.  Superman & Lois come back for season two, setting the scenes for smalltown drama.  Meanwhile on Tatooine, Boba Fett and Agent May continue to try to consolidate power.  The Legends pick their season up as Sara realizes they aren’t exactly good for the timeline (No word on if Marvin actually makes an appearance.)  Batwoman gives us some of Renee’s backstory.  Star Trek: Prodigy reveals some more of the ships backstory.  The Blacklist plays tennis.  We also get the series finale in an extra long episode that I expect will have trouble wrapping up all the available plot lines.

Happy New Year!  I hope you had fun, and if you had too much fun there is plenty of time to recover this week, as the Table is very light.  Call the Midwife returns for its 11th season.  Boba Fett furthers his attempt to conquer Tatooine’s underworld.  Star Trek: Prodigy returns from its break.  The Blacklist gives us a flashback show telling us what happened after the previous decades star died.  The Expanse takes us for its second to last episode, bringing everyone together.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2021 August 8

Did you rest up the last two weeks?  We have plenty of new shows for you to watch!  First, Don’t Count out the shows from the the house that Kent built, as Kent visits his high school sweetheart while his son gets close with his wife’s alternate-universe husband.  The Legends go bowling.  Stargirl and Titans both start their next seasons, while copes with being being a golden age superhero while being in school.  The Titans don’t give us descriptions for their first three episodes, but based on the titles, we get either Batgirl or Oracle, Red Hood, and Hank and Dove’s return.  If CW shows returning is your thing, Riverdale’s got your back with a post-prison break roundup.  If you prefer the other side of the of the Comic universes, Marvel takes its Cinematic Universe and and tweaks it, starting the animated What If story with Peggy Carter became Captain America.  If you prefer to stay away from the comics entirely, but still want a new season, Lower Deck’s brings us animated, comedic Star Trek.  There’s new episodes of Miraculous, Bad Batch, and My Hero Academia.  Finally, if you like your shows coming out in last decade’s style, there’s SurrealEstate’s visit to a rapper’s studio.  (Don’t forget last week’s review!)

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2021 August 1

Well, if you thought last week was quiet, you’ll have plenty of chance to nap this week.  Be sure to follow along in the house hunt on SurrealEstate as they go to the sea side for vacation, and keep your eyes out for a special from The Boys.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2021 July 25

It’s a light week for our television table, and even lighter week for descriptions, as a writer’s cabin by the lake coming up on the SurrealEstate parade of homes is the only description we have.  Based off of titles, Evil does seem to be dealing with the police, the Bad Batch confronts Riverdale’s bad boy after he gets into Tony Stark’s extra armor, and My Hero Academia’s apology is unacceptable.

Looking for more remakes of favorites from your childhood?  We have the power, as Masters of the Universe’s first half of the first season drop this week.  They join SurrealEstate as new shows on the table. (Be sure to catch the Bureau’s review!Dependable Classics such as the Legends, who looks for magic in the Spanish Civil War, The Flash, who finish their two parter with more speedsters than you asked for, Superman and Lois, who Superman takes a business meeting.  Also, Evil raises some evil dead.

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

I hope the warm weather means more enjoyment for everyone and not being Dangerously Cooked because you went for a walk outside.  While you’re staying in, watch out for elevators.  That’s not a horror-scope, Evil is targeting one this week.  The Legends are celebrating a birthday, (my like my daughter Majel), and Flash gets shocked with a new son.  Lois and her lover from another cosmos search for the super-husband that abandoned them last episode.  We also get the season (and likely, series) finale of Loki.

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

To the Canadians, happy Canada 🇨🇦 Day and to the Americans, happy Independence 🇺🇸 Day!  We should get Mexico to move their day out of September to the second or the third and have a North America Day on the other. I hope you have plans, because there isn’t a lot of television to watch, as The Flash gives us a John Diggle crossover, and Evil, Loki, The Bad Batch, and My Hero Academia all forgo the descriptions to make you watch the episodes to see what the fireworks are.
