Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 15 December 2019

Today is my 12th wedding anniversary, and all of the shows, even the ones not wiped out by a Crisis, have decided to celebrate and take the week off.  Except Watchmen, who seem to be falling into Crisis after all.  His Dark Materials gets extra dark, with children in fights to the death.  The Mandalorian doesn’t give us anything to go on, but each episode has been better than a good chunk of the movies, so it doesn’t really have to.  Looking ahead, if you are planning for the next week, while you are on a stake-out for the fat man who is breaking and entering, you’ve got two more episodes of these shows an a season of Lost in Space.  I will be using the time to catch up on Runaways from last week, first.
