Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 28 April 2019

In our breakroom this week, if we are aren’t to busy discussing the big game, we can watch the war escalated for the American Gods, or watch it actually happen in Game of Thrones.  The seasons are winding down for the CW shows, as Supergirl remains hunted, Arrow pretends to be a true crime story, the Legends are all about couples, Nora goes rogue on The Flash, and Cyborg gets to Doom Patrol for ants.  In Riverdale, we get some adults’ idea of what a high school prom looks like.  Cloak and Dagger gets deep into sex trafficking.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 21 April 2019

Another busy week as we rush headlong into the ending of the regular broadcast seasons.  The American Gods give us some Mad Sweeney backstory.  We get a calm evening at Winterfell on Game of Thrones.  In the Decidedly Comprehensive corner, Supergirl reads Dostoevsky’s first great novel, Arrow focuses on Diggle, the Legends send unsolicited emojis, the Flash brings back their winter villains, and Doom Patrol lets Cyborg perform an upgrade.  In Riverdale, the Easter themed little sister is still missing, and on Cloak and Dagger, Tyrone rolls up a new character sheet.  Orville has to deal with the fallout from last week’s temporal shenanigans.  For fans of slightly less genre specific shows, She-Ra and the Princesses of Power is scheduled to make a return, and Cobra Kai kicks off season 2 this week, also!

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 14 April 2019

This week, we return with a new post title with 20% more DC and 100% more dragons!  I didn’t even know Doom Patrol had started, and we are already 10 episodes in, but they will also appear here along side the warring armies of Westeros.  Out homegrown deities explore what happened to one of the more popular in the pantheon, the hammer wielding Donar.  Except for Supergirl, the other Disguised Champions are back on patrol alongside their doomed streaming exclusive friends.   Arrow’s Laurel redemptive arc hits a rocky patch, Mona reads some classic literature, and Flash gives us answers on Nora’s motivations.  The junkies in Riverdale find themselves deeper into the clutches of a cult.  Marvel gives us Cloak fighting his past while Dagger fights a sex trafficking ring.  The Orvile’s description seems like we get our classic time loop episode.  My most biggest anticipation this week however is watching Star Trek: Discovery boldly goes into its season finale.

Comic Television Discussion – Week beginning 31 March 2019

While Arrow and The Flash hide from the April Fools that are everywhere, the fools of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow return to the airwaves to keep Supergirl company.  The Legends spend a lot of time dealing with their Bureau (not this Bureau,) and Supergirl gives us Ms. Teschmacher’s tale.  American Gods give us more pairings of Laura and her Leprechaun, while Bilquis debates a spider.

Riverdale continues to explorer the drug trade and boxing worlds, Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger also returns, deciding their great powers must come with great responsibility, and may not be so great after all.

Sabrina also returns with either the last episode of Season 1, or the first episode of Season 2, depending on where you look.  If you want to warm up from her Chilling Adventures, Arthur and The Tick drop their second season this week, also.

Comic Television Discussion – Week beginning 24 March 2019

This week is surprisingly light, after Black Lightning wrapped up his season last week, and a few regulars take some time off.  American Gods features one of the ravens, Supergirl lets Lex tell us where he’s been for two years, Arrow gets Laurel more involved in team, and Riverdale’s finale attacks the drug factory Farm.

Next week, The Legends of Tomorrow, Cloak and Dagger, The Tick, and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina return for new seasons. (Most of which are included below.)

Comic Television Discussion – Week beginning 17 March 2019

The season two return of American Gods was so distracting, last week’s post was completely missed.  (Feel free to talk about last week’s episodes here, as well.)  American Gods lets us see the trains we all know are circling the country and performing illicit acts of espionage.  Supergirl had already given us a new Superman for her universe, now we get to meet their `Lex, err… Lex.  Arrow goes into the future and stays there for the issue.  Black Lightning adds more metas, probably.  The Flash takes a trip out to the suburbs.  Outside of DC, Riverdale gets musical.
