Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2020 April 12

With everyone telecommuting, the Breakroom’s television seems to be getting a break, also.  Even Westworld is just saying “No.” to our Genre.  Neil and the Scientists on Cosmos are working tirelessly, still giving us two episodes, but otherwise all we have are the villains of Riverdale as they perform a musical episode, Jimmy tries to get back to business as usual (wouldn’t we all?) and Red goes against his own task force on Blacklist.  Anyone binge anything fun lately?

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2020 March 8

Coming in like a lion, the Deserted Crowd of Disguise and Costume roar back onto the breakroom boobtube, and Batwoman realizes she should smile a bit more, Supergirl will always love you, Black Lightning finishes his season, The Flash finishes off the Speed Force, and The Legends meet up with a non-spider-powered Mr. Parker.  Saul takes up Yoga and finds inner peace.  Things are looking up for Neil deGrasse Tyson, as his second season of Cosmos returns with two episodes.  The other type of Good Doctor takes two recently broken up doctors and makes them work together on a small problem.  Someone does their best to keep the Riverdale “teens” from getting back to the screen.  To round out the week, we also get Picard learning what really caused the demise of the red planet.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2020 February 30

It’s a light week, and it is getting lighter as The Doctor ends her season when she takes on the Cybermen.  On Better Call Saul, Jimmy’s business enters new territory, our post!  Black Lightning goes it alone again as the only show on this week from his Disappearing Compatriots.  Our Good Doctor Shaun also ventures into unknown territory with a new mystery disease.  Riverdale gets an Alice Copper documentary.  Picard works with Soji to let her figure out what she is.  Also, if you didn’t rush through it, Altered Carbon’s second season is still out there.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2020 February 23

The week seems severely front loaded, with most of the shows appearing this week, but there is still a surprise on Thursday.  Before that, we travel time as Doctor Who races to the future to deal with the effects of the information given out at the end of last week.  In calmer settings across the pond, the midwives deal with being homeless and drug addiction.  Bet you didn’t see that coming, huh?  Then, our Doggedly Caped heroes hit with new villains for Batwoman and Supergirl taking a look back for her 100th episode.  Black Lightning (who does not have a cape) returns to Freeland to fight the epic battle, still without his new heroic friends in his new earth.  The Flash has some more monkey business with Grodd, and the Legends shout Khan.  The Good Doctor autopsies last week’s breakup.  The Riverdale teens play the I Know What You Did Last Summer game.  On Star Trek: Picard, Jean-Luc has to confront his time as a Borg again.  That’s all that’s visible on my weekly schedule, which leaves the rest of the weekend to binge Altered Carbon season 2, this time with Falcon taking over the lead role.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2020 February 9

This week features many lovely episodes, as it encompasses 💕Valentines Day💗!  Life is a dream for The Doctor, while the Midwives deal with outdated (even then) birthing practices.  Here my Domestic Continent, The Flash has to deal with an old enemy, but not Cupid for some reason, while the Legends end up in an 80s slasher flick, and Black Lightning chases down his Valentine.  The Good Doctor deals with the horrible specter of social media, and the Riverdale “teens” come to terms with the fact that this is season four and they can’t really pretend to be in highschool after this season.  Jean Luc Picard gets directed by Number One (Johnathan Frakes, not his dog.)

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2 February 2020

With Arrow’s departure, his Devestated Comrades mostly managed to pick up the pieces, except for a few who took the week off for funeral leave.  Black Lightning and his kids join the enemies side, while The Flash remembers he’s married and helps his wife while he mourns.  The Legends take off for 1947 to be gangsta.  The other comic spawned show (Riverdale) tells us a very gender specific tale of honor.   In space, The Doctor returns to Earth, but surprisingly it’s in India, not London.  I guess The Doctor expects the Midwives to handle any calls without help.  It sounds easy enough, since they mostly expect to go see a movie.  This leaves Picard to go off into space with his former crew.  (Not that one, the crew after that one.)

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.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 20 October 2019

I hope you didn’t have any other plans, as there is plenty of television to keep those of us unpopular enough not to have Halloween party invites busy. If the Dire Crisis of Batwoman, Supergirl, Arrow, Flash, and maybe Black Lightning and the Titans coupled with the horror of 1984, Riverdale, the return of Castle Rock and watching The Good Doctor try to get to second base is took much, Will and Grace also will return to lighten the mood.  Personally, The Blacklist cheers me up pretty well, too.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 12 May 2019

We have a few of our big name titles reaching the end of their seasons, such as Flash, Arrow, and Riverdale, with others getting to their penultimate adventure, such as Supergirl, Game of Thrones, and Doom Patrol.  I’d ask what we think we would put on in the breakroom once they wrap up, but I suspect we all have plenty of backlog to catch up on.  Which seasonal climax are you most looking forward to?

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 5 May 2019

Busy week, sorry the schedule is going up late!  We are getting to the point where there’s almost too much to list, but with the Arrowverse on DC’s CW winding down we have Marvel stepping up with the return of S.H.E.I.L.D., and Lucifer drops all of Season 4, Netflix style!  Also, if you like Disney’s animated offerings, DuckTales and Big Hero 6 also seem to be coming out once a day.  Am I missing anything you guys are watching?
