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

I hope you Didn’t Count out the Arrowverse, because they’re back on the Television Table this week, as Batwoman faces Black Mask, Pennyworth gets Salty, Black Lightning brings Painkiller back (didn’t we already announce this episode?,) The Flash faces frosty foes, and Supergirl faces the largest letdown in prequel history.  Marvel doesn’t want to be forgotten, and drops the penultimate episode of Falcon and the Winter Soldier of Friday.  If you like animation, Miraculous, Invincible, and My Hero Academia also give us new episodes.  If you are trying to stay away from super heroes, there’s Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist where she sees a medium, and Red takes a break from the Blacklist to visit rural America.

[Edited to add] The Nevers, which is basically Joss Whedon’s Victorian School for Gifted Youngsters, which dropped on Sunday as well.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2021 March 28

At first, I was surprised to see so many new titles, but I think we actually end up with a Decreased Count.  Superman takes the week off to give room for his cousin Supergirl to start her sixth season.  Batwoman admitted that Kate is gone, and starts picking up the pieces.  Pennyworth doesn’t give us a description, but the impending execution implied by the title makes it forgivable, and the Flash faces fears fostered by his foe.  Zoey and her Extraordinary Playlist return, exploring her memory.  The Good Doctor has Claire getting a visit from her deadbeat dad.  On Riverdale, Archie is visited by his former Army general.  The Falcon and the Winter Soldier doesn’t offer us a description either, but if the implications from last week’s episode are to be believed, we will pay a visit to an MCU antagonist.  Red works against his Task Force when they go for one of his contacts.

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

As the first week past the Vernal Equinox, spring is here!  The season finale of American Gods lands this week as we can see if Wednesdays preparations were enough.  Batwoman gets a chance to see much of a batwoman she really is.  Pennyworth and Black Lightning don’t get use a description, but the titles suggest Pennyworth has a drink, and Black Lightning appears to indicate a returning character.  The Flash has the episode that would have been the season premier if it hadn’t been delayed.  Superman & Lois promise us the best of the ten seasons of the previous Superman show (and I am all for that.)  Other comic book inspired television gives us Riverdale’s kids staff now coping has a dark and grim defeats.  The Falcon and The Winter Soldier appears to be following WandaVisions path and not giving us a description or even an episode title before the show drops.  The Good Doctor also attempts to take on another very difficult topic as Shaun and Lea decides how to handle an unplanned life change.  The Blacklist appears to go geocaching, which will be great to get everyone in the mood to go hike now that spring has arrived.  While I tend to skip the animated shows in this write up, if you have an eight and twelve year old set of little girls at home who likes non-English based superhero animation, you’ll be happy to hear that Miraculous season four will premier this week, too.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2021 π Day

With math on the mind, the Dividend Calculators at the CW are managing to get their shows out despite obvious cautionary changes to the productions.  While Batwoman debates the merits of not winnowing down the cast further, Pennyworth doesn’t mind bringing his together.  Black Lightning swaps actresses, but potentially scares away some cast, The Flash brings back Ralph’s would-be-wife, but leave the cancelled cast member off the story, Superman and Lois decide they can be safer by just going outside and take in some highschool football while they are there, and the “kids” of Riverdale all stop to wonder just what it is they are actually doing.  If you still think you need precautions, you can always say a prayer to the American Gods, but don’t expect a response; they are pretty busy solidifying their alliances for the war.  Did you enjoy your week off last week without WandaVision?  Well, I hope you got your rest in, because this Friday they next MCU television series launches as The Falcon and the Winter Soldier start their buddy story.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2021 February 28

More of the comic shows are returning, Despite Corona, even if in typical Flash timing, he’s late.  His season premier is really the conclusion to last season.  Batwoman gives us an episode wish to earn the adjective “late”, and Superman & Lois take up residence back in Clark’s small villa.  Black Lightning faces his big bad to say to leave him alone, because that always works out as expected.  American Gods get a lot of surprises for beings claiming omniscience.  WandaVision gives us a finale for a series that seemed easily dismissed at first, but has gained popularity enough that you have to stay offline on Fridays until you see the episode if you want to avoid spoilers.  The Blacklist brings back Elizabeth, at lease according to the “next week on” segment.

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 2020 May 17

The shows are winding down, not just because of that Disease, Corona, but because it’s time for seasons to end.  Though, just like Flash was hurrying up, the endings are happening faster than they had expected.  Before they’re gone, we still have Batwoman fighting a “former hero”, Supergirl turns into a soap opera as everyone has to deal with everyone the swore they would never trust again, and the Legends do Zombie Apocalypse.  Standing alone against the odds, the lone Marvel character is an animated Spider-Man, whose episode is named for the beloved 80s Spider-Man, but is actually just a Groot story.

[ETA:] Stargirl also dropped with her pilot.
