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

Don’t Care for the long summer gap between seasons?  The pandemic has brought you something good, as Legends and Batwoman’s next seasons are already here, both picking up right where the previous seasons left off.  Still in the Arrowverse (is it still the Arrowverse?) Supergirl goes after Nyxly, and Stargirl recovers from Pat’s dark secrets.  Elsewhere in that multiverse, the Titans and Doom Patrol give us new episodes, (but no descriptions.)  Evil gives you something to chew on to end the season.  Chapelwaite sees a vampire future.  Y: The Last Man visits a tourist trap.  The Good Doctor doesn’t care for the changes at the hospital.  Foundation tells us why Gaal has a conflict.  American Horror Story and See also give us new episodes, and if you happen to catch the first season of Katee Sackhoff’s Sci-Fi Another Life, season 2 drops this week.  [If you didn’t, I’ll warn you it’s less science, more drama.]

TV Review: Doom Patrol, “Dead Patrol,” “Undead Patrol”

When we last left our heroes, most of them had died.

Fortunately, they appear to be only mostly dead, and help is on its way– not Billy Crystal, but Crystal Palace, and some characters from Sandman.

Click through for an account of the afterlife, zombies, cannibalism, killer buttocks, and a time-lost amnesiac. In short, a couple more episodes of Doom Patrol.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2021 October 3

Welcome to “Spooky Season”!  As the Bureau begins out October Reviews, our shows do not take any time off, so you’ll have it squeeze those movies in where you can.  Evil gets into your brain this week.  Chapelwaite is grieving.  Per a good suggestion, Y: The Last Man joins the BBTT, but the title informing me that our favorite multi-genre muscian had passed away distracted me from the summary of political intrigue.  The Good Doctor plans for a wedding as the hospital staff shakes up.  Stargirl takes a regret-filled trip to the past, while Supergirl searches for magical totems as Lena gets witchy.  What If will conitue last week’s episode, but gives us not advanced notice.  Doom Patrol assists Madame Rouge.  The Queen speaks on See.  In Foundation, the Empire argues with himself.  American Horror Story, Titans, Star Trek: Lower Decks, and the Boys speciall all are also on the table, but didn’t give us any descriptions, so they don’t get mentioned.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2021 September 19

Between last year’s COVID affected production and release schedules and the move to streaming from broadcast seasons, I am not sure that fall premiers and summer re-runs are still a thing.  A John Diggle Cameo joins us for Supergirl’s twelfth episode focuses on a socially just Guardian, but Stargirl is back at episode seven, giving fallout from Yolanda’s remorse.  The stream side was staggared as well as Titan’s take their ninth episode with some soul, but we are just getting the first three episodes of Doom Patrol’s third season.  Over on Evil, someone is afraid of cracking some eggs.  Chapelwaite gets committed.  What If still doesn’t give us advanced knowledge of which changes we will get to see, but there’s a Multiversal Avengers theory out there, as well as a Thor-centric episode still in the works.  Riverdale sends Jughead and Betty season for missing friends.  American Horror Story offs the Gardners.  On See, the family has a royal dinner party.
