Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2021 February 21

There’s a new arrival as Superman and Lois launches their Pilot this week, though there is no sign of his cousin’s show returning.  Elsewhere, Delayed by COVID, Batwoman views some disgusting art and Black Lightning’s wife makes a breakthrough.  Meanwhile, in the MCU, we can see what the newly revealed theme song can give us on WandaVision.  Before we’re out of the comics, be sure we check in with the American Gods as Shadow and his estranged wife explore small town life, and Gizmoduck appears on DuckTales.  Now that we are out of the comic section, Riverdale turns the “kids” to teachers so they don’t need to build new sets.  The Good Doctor deals with ransomware, which I expect will give the IT guys like me watching the show the same reaction a real-world doctor does when watching surgery scenes.  On The Blacklist, some job opportunities present themselves.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2021 February 14

As we all bask in the love celebrated today, we have a new crop of episodes for our breakroom television.  Batwoman fills out a dating profile, and is evidently attracted to opposites.  The Watch gives us the season finale and a candle light dinner.  American Gods see’s the release of the updated dating app, Bilquis.  On Black Lightning, Lightning meets a new boy.  The Good Doctor goes out for a dinner at a light restaurant.  Riverdale gets a date for Homecoming, and two Blacklisters managed to hook up.  WandaVision doesn’t give us any description, but having watched it shows that we aren’t likely to see marital bliss we’d expect from the couple.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2021 January 24

A special thank you to visionary_coward for suggesting the Watch, as it is a delightful show!  This week, they get out of the mortgage game.  Batwoman gives us a rare second season look at a new person learning to be the title character.  American Gods tries to cover a Dan Brown story.  The Good Doctor gets taken home to meet the parents.  Staged wraps up their story with some surprise casting and some surprise meetings.  Zoey and her friends all have to work, and Riverdale talks business..  On The Expanse, I do not have an episode description, but the title appears to describe the feeling after a hard night of drinking, so I guess it’s an Amos or Bobbi centered episode.  The Blacklist is still on the air, and the character they wanted to set the show around has become the enemy of the show.  Also, WandaVision continues its happy sitcom charade into the 80s, having added two more fan favorite comic characters at the end of last episode.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2021 January 17

The wait is over, as the shows start rushing back!  First, we start by watching The Watch seek a sword.  Then, Batwoman offers us multiple Batwomen and a Bruce Wayne that leaves even the synopsis skeptical.  In American Gods, we see that even when Shadow thinks he can get out, they pull him back in.  The Good Doctor sees if you actually can buy eternal life, while David and Michael turn their guest stars into therapists, and we learn the final choice for their roles on Staged.  Zoey dreams big, and The Expanse really, really cleans their carpets.  The “Teens” on Riverdale return for their fifth year of highschool.  Wanda and Vision doesn’t give us a synopsis, but so far each episode has been a sitcom from a previous decade, and it looks like we just made it to colorization and the seventies.  On The Blacklist, we see Elizabeth Keen turn on Reddington.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2021 January 10

Having caught up on all of what my wife calls “Drop Shows” (shows that drop the whole season at a time) we can all get ready for the return of the worlds most expensive series, the MCU! Season Phase 4 starts off with WandaVision at the end of this week.  If Marvel comics aren’t your thing, Dark Horse’s American Gods comes back for season three, also.  The Watch plans a heist, and The Good Doctor continues to be one of the only shows to exist in a universe where COVID has had an effect.  Well, The Good Doctor and Staged, as David and Michael continue to process the fact that their show is going to America without them.  Zoey gives us a new character, and The Expanse doesn’t give us a description.

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.)
