Weekend Review: Undone, Season One

We haven’t been doing summer weekend reviews of older films and shows, so here’s a bingeworthy series from 2019 which received a surprise second season in 2022. We’ll get to that (and Sandman) later. Meanwhile, here are four fascinating, rotoscoped hours of psychological drama, comedy, dark secrets, and time-travel.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2022 August 7

With the season finales last week, our lists seems like it’s in danger of running try, but fear not!  Comics and even some Star Trek are going to show up a bit later in August.  Now that we are done with the long range forecast, this week’s light table should allow enough time finish Sandman (in case you were sleeping on that.)  Evil takes on the stock market.  Westworld stops for a life changing drink,  Better Call Saul was showing as a finale episode, but other sources say we’ve got two episodes left.  Primal doesn’t offer us any details on its fifth episode.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2022 July 17

The summer lump may not be a thing now that we are in the era of streaming, but apparently we are spending a week revisiting things the way they used to be.  Evil returns to its Evil ways with demons offering you fun suggestions.  Riverdale delves into Percival’s back story.  Westworld wants to let the old die.  Better Call Saul tries to close loose ends with the cartel.  The Orville doesn’t offer us a description, but seems to planning to redecorate.  Mystery Science Theater 3000 also revisits its roots by giving us some kaiju on kaiju fights.  If you want to go way, way back to the cavemen, Primal also returns.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2022 July 10

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2022 July 3

The Table is down to only six this week, and descriptions are down to two.  That is only if the short existential poetry of this week’s Westworld a description can be counted as a discription.  Before that Evil takes their show on the road.  Ms. Marvel gives us her fifth episode, and The Orville gives us “Twice in a lifetime” which one could guess is a title for a time-loop episode.  The Boys and Strange New Worlds both end their seasons this week, as well.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2022 June 26

It’s been busy so I haven’t had much time to get into the breakroom to catch up, but some of this week’s entries are really catching my eye.  First, we get the cast of Evil facing off against a Demon of Sex1.  Riverdale also faces off with the biblical, but it doesn’t sound nearly as much fun.  Westworld returns, however it isn’t giving us any clue what we’ll be getting.  Superman and Lois show the power of the press as the world is ending.  Ms. Marvel doesn’t give us a description or even a title.  The Flash finishes his season in the second half of a fatal finale.  The Orville doubles their Moclan children.  The Boys take a candle to bed.  Star Trek: Strange New Worlds quotes Tolkien at us.  Then, to wrap up the week, Stranger Things wraps up it’s fourth season with two more episodes.
