Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2020 November 29

If the delay is the new seasons have you depressed, take heart in the fact that between Discovery and Mandalorian we are getting some of the best examples of the two biggest franchises in our genre.  This week, Discovery travels to Books homeworld, and Mando continues to reel back from learning that The Child has a name.  His Dark Materials has our kids quest to retrieve their golden compass.  The Good Doctor struggles with teaching.  If you are still looking for animation the Ducks have Scrooge and Santa Claus team up, and the Daleks continue their game of cat and mouse in the universe of 90’s level CGI.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2020 November 22

This week on the Television Table, we get Discovery and some 32nd century Vulcans, while the Mandalorian gets some Jedi.  Meanwhile His Dark Materials shows us what happens when Lyra disbelieves her golden compass.  The Dalek’s CGI videos over on YouTube continue as the Strategist and Emperor try to escape the green blob that is after them, and The Good Doctor steps up his relationship.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2020 November 15

The first thing in this list that jumped out at me was the fact that I can’t see a listing anywhere for the third episode of this season’s Blacklist, and this week’s is labeled as “Conclusion,” but a bit of web research is inconclusive but seems to indicate they are referring to the fact that it’s season seven’s conclusion, pushed to this season.  Going in reverse order this week, we also get Marvel’s 616, a series that examine the characters in-universe.  The two best genre shows currently on television, possibly the two best shows on television at all, also appear.  The Mandalorian doesn’t give us a description, and some of the crew of Discovery are going to meet with Book.  Reinforcements show up to deal with the pandemic on The Good Doctor.  In His Dark Materials, Lyra crosses into the show’s version of our real world.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2020 November 8

We get more shows returning, as Blacklist pits Red against Liz this season, and His Dark Materials shows Lyra and Will arriving in a new location.  The Good Doctor, after last week’s brutal look at Coronavirus from the view of the hospital workers, continues to pummel our feels with the second half of the episode.  Meanwhile out in space, Discovery heads for the Federation headquarters and The Mandalorian searches for the Mandalorian’s headquarters.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2020 November 1

It was at this point that I realized all of the shows I typically am putting on our Television Table are missing.  I see that the CW has delayed its offerings until January, but we have a trickle of the regular shows returning here, starting with this week’s season premier of The Good Doctor.  Outside of that, our regular genre shows for the week are Star Trek: Discovery and The Mandalorian.  Is anyone else amused that these two titans of the genre are going head to head for release dates?

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

So if Star Trek: Discovery was so terrifying, who could possibly show up to give it competition for our screen time? The Mandalorian, of course.  Sure, we have some animation, with Spider-Man and his Big Hero 6 buddies from Marvel, their Disney buddies of DuckTales, and that quiet caveman on Primal, but the big action is obviously in live action (or at least in CGI.)

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 22 December 2019

The holidays mean everything slows down, including the shows to watch.  His Dark Materials and The Mandalorian are the only regular shows this week, but Lost in Space‘s second season drops, and if you’re a fan of Holiday Specials, Call The Midwife and Mrs. Brown’s Boys has you covered.
