Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2021 June 7

If you didn’t get enough comics on your breakroom television, I have good news for you! Not only Did CW come back, bringing us a Constantine episode, Batwoman focuses on Luke Fox’s story, The Flash bids farewell to a series regular from the beginning, and Superman and Lois figure out why their show’s big bad is in Smallville in the first place, but Marvel gives us a time-hopping, What If…? styled story centered around the villain that was so popular he gets to resurrect a few times and become a hero, Loki!  In other stores, we get The Good Doctor’s season finale in Guatemala, the Handmaid’s penultimate episode, and some cartoons.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2021 May 23

A few of our shows have taken the week off, which would make it seem like there is less to watch, but the Details Carry an infernal difference as Lucifer Season 5’s second half drops.  The Legends also visit JFK, Black Lightning brings its show to a close, the Flash finishes last week’s two parter, Superman and Lois help train their son.  If you enjoyed Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K. last week, Robot Chicken has an Archie Comic special for you.  The Handmaid takes her tale home.  The Good Doctor goes off camping.  The Blacklist hires a transporter.  If you need something different, Solos drops some big name talent in a new Anthology series.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2021 May 16

As it would be a Direct Contradiction to their timeline, Supergirl is off the table this week so that Superman & Lois can step in to delve into their family drama.  The Legends also bring the drama as they join a reality-TV singing show.  Batwoman fights those suffering from drug addiction.  Black Lightning exposes his weakness.  The Flash leaves us on a cliffhanger that seems to imply cast changes for next season.

If DC isn’t your kinda thing (and judging from the references on DC’s shows, it’s not their thing, either) Marvel does have a release this week, with Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K.  This is the show about the giant head in a chair, maybe in the style of (and by the folks who made) Robot Chicken.  There’s a lot of names associated with it, but I think it’s a toss up whether this will be a hit or just another on AIM’s blunders.

In more adult fare, The Nevers gibes us their season finale, revealing True’s back story.  The Good Doctor has Claire meeting her idol.  The Handmaid takes a vow.  The Blacklist might actually reveal some background info, unless the FBI can stop an assassin coming for Liz.

[Edited to add] The Underground Railroad and The Bad Batch have been added.  Be sure to comment when I miss a show, I won’t know something is out unless it’s already in my radar.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2021 May 9

First, a shout out to the Dear, Compassionate matriarch Bureaucrats (and of Bureaucrats) as we post on Mother’s day.  Thanks to you all!

Speaking of mothers, the new ones get welcomed by new Midwives answer the Call during World Cup season.  The Legends hit an unsafe churrascaria with Amelia Earhart.  The Nevers execute their penultimate episode.  Batwoman give us classic villain games.  Zoey has a flashback episode at her therapists.  Black Lightning welcomes Painkiller to the show.  The Good Doctor deals with his soon-to-be-mother’s complications.  The Flash goes back to the Wells for help.  Supergirl’s cast each get to face their deepest fear.  On Blacklist, Red tries to visit an old friend.  If you want some disturbing animation, Netflix drops the second season of the animated sci-fi show Love, Death + Robots.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2021 May 2

After last week’s Dearth, Comic-shows make a surge this week as the Legends of Tomorrow return with their season premier, as this season’s collection of baddies is introduced.  Batwoman debates coming out.  Black Lightning and his family open a new chapter after the disastrous end of last week.  The Flash goes to court, fighting against real consequences for their actions.  Supergirl has the second half of our trip to the past for Prom.  (Personally, I think they may be trying for a second attempt at a backdoor pilot to a Young Supergirl series.)  Across the pond, we have non-comic based Nevers, who use last week’s murder to advance their plans, while the Midwives don’t tell us what they are up to.  Zoey’s stop listening to her playlist to go on a double date.  The Handmaidens do a body good.  On the Blacklist, Liz and her Taskforce work on finding N-13.

📺 Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2020 May 31

The kids are home for summer… which happened a couple of months ago thanks to the global pandemic.  Now, our shows have gone to on their summer breaks as well, which leaves us with just four genre shows.  Stargirl takes on Icicle while DC’s Legends fight Fate in a dystopia and potentially in a thong.  Marvel’s Agents continue to try to protect the time stream during prohibition.  In Blindspot, our FBI team goes up against a chemical weapon.  If this wasn’t enough cheesy campiness, Netflix is also dropping the rest of Fuller House leading to the triple wedding (three couples, not a thruple.)

📺 Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2020 May 24

The seasons have actually closed for most of the CW’s winter favorites, leaving us with one Debutante Covering the slightly-less-silly content.  Stargirl finds out her own history in her second episode, while the Legends abandon any pretense of not being the “meta” show, and the TV characters are thrown into TV shows.  Hopefully, Mick lands in John Doe and we get a satisfying conclusion to that series.  Meanwhile, the House of Ideas debuts the finale season of its debut MCU show, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.  This season promises to give us some returns of Agent Carter characters while the agents are trapped in the age of men wearing excellent fedoras.  In non-comic-based unbelievable shows, the Blindspot team deals with betrayal both in their headquarters and the FBI’s.

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.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2020 April 19

Still inside?  Good news!  The Flash and the Legends have Defeated Corona and returned, with the Flash bringing the creepiest of assassins, Rag Doll back while the Legends seem to be planning a pastiche of Supernatural.  The anti-penultimate episode of Westworld arrives and the episode descriptions are just outright making fun of the people who are looking for individual episode descriptions.  Zoey listens to a SPRQ Point turf war, which probably will give us West Side Story vibes.  Cosmos gives a bright look at the near future.  Saul gives us season five’s finale.  The Blacklist seeks to help Dembe’s buddy.  If you want some animation, Louie turns 11 on DuckTales and Spider-Man gives some some symbiote shenanigans.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2020 March 22

With the Bureau’s physical offices closed down due to the quarantine, we hope that all of you Bureaucrats are staying healthy.  To help you shelter in place, the Breakroom television remains tuned in to avoid the the Disastrous Consequences of cabin fever.  Watch as our characters all take trips, starting as Batwoman decides to travel through the looking glass, while on Supergirl, Alex finds herself in Wonderland, and the Legends split up to let Zari take center stage.  Our only other superhero this week ends his season as Picard deals with the impending arrival of god-like AI-aliens.  (AIliens?)  If god-like artificial intelligences are too OP for you, feel free to scale it back with this week’s Westworld as the AI robots infiltrate the outside world.  If you need even more science, but less fiction, Cosmos gives us two more episodes examining consciousness’s evolution and Carl Sagan’s personal evolution.  The last tenuous link to science fiction we have this week is Zoey, who confesses to Max.  Saul manages to avoid being stopped by Kim and Jimmy, The Good Doctor starts its season finale with an earth shaking first part, and Ultron Spader Red takes an island vacation to enjoy some art on The Blacklist.
