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

The Judoon return to Doctor Who this week, bringing back a fan favorite rhinoceros-headed aliens.  Elsewhere in space, Picard continues to try to solve the mystery of Data’s daughter.  The Midwives are called to make a case for home service for births (instead of hospitals,) as well.  That’s just the start of this week’s shows.  Are you unable to cope with the Deluge?  Can’t keep up with all of these shows?  Good news, one of them is going away!  Arrow airs its finale this week, bringing eight years to a close for the show that started one of the most successful runs of DC properties in video.  Batwoman’s birthday even takes a back seat, Supergirl brings a season one star back, all the other heroes are still to busy to stop by Freeland to help their new friend Black Lightning, and the Legends skip this week to make room for a special set of postmortem interviews with Arrow creators.  Elsewhere, Archie Comics give us another episode of Riverdale, and the next season of Sabrina is still hanging out if you have more time to hang out in the Bureau’s Breakroom.

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.

The dark of the year has hit the shows, while only the darkest (Titans) is still working this year.  In case you missed it last week, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina revives the tradition of yuletide ghost stories for the longest night of the year, but otherwise we get a nice long festive break.

Comic Television Discussion – Week beginning 4th November 2018

While The Flash and Black Lightning take a week off to read Blaine’s review of Daredevil, Supergirl introduces Manchester Black in a way that makes it clear that you should know who that is, presumable from some comics.  Arrow continues chasing last seasons big bad, while the Legends of tomorrow visit the British punk scene, where Constantine should feel at home, but is instead entirely underused.  The Titans start working as a team.  In the X side of things, we get the Stepford Cuckoos Frost Triplets backstory.  Riverdale way back into the old people’s ancient past (the 90s) to see the games they played.

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina – Season 1

First they began a horror comic called Afterlife with Archie where Jughead talks Sabrina into helping him bring his dog back to life after Reggie runs him over.  She does, and accidentally unleashes a zombie plague on Riverdale.  This was dark, well illustrated, and popular.  This lead two a spin-off, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, which brings the formerly bubbly half-witch into a dark world where witches actually worship the lord of hell, devour babies, and hang out with goblins disguised as animals.  This show has about as much in common with the fun, after school show of the nineties as Riverdale does to the Archie comics of the fifties.

But is it any good?  To find out, read Continue reading →
