Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2021 November 21

A joyous (American) Thanksgiving to all our Bureaucrats this week.  We are thankful for you, dear readers.  I am also personally thankful for you patience and forgiving nature when I miss shows we should be letting you know about.  For example, last week Marvel’s Hit-Monkey first season dropped, and the live action adaptation of Cowboy Bebop (which I have already mainlined and finished.)  Newly appearing this week is the second half of Masters of the Universe: Revelation, and the first two episodes of Marvel’s new Hawkeye series, set with a winter holiday theme.  Our episodic entries this week, The Doctor (Who) visits 1967 and The Village of the Angels.  The Doctor (Good) visits wedding venues.  The Flash visits Black Lightning.  The Legends visit 1940s Seattle (and WWII.)  Batwoman is thematically relevant to the holiday as she has to mediate a Bat-family dispute.  Over on Riverdale (in Rivervale) we are visited by a vengeful spirit from their folklore.  Star Trek: Discovery doesn’t offer us a description, but be sure to read last week’s review to get an idea of where this week’s will (boldly) go.

[ETA: The Wheel of Time, thanks Visionary_Coward!]

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2021 November 14

The new blood arrives, as Riverdale, The Flash, and Star Trek: Discovery all return to the table.  In Riverdale, the show shifts to Rivervale, which sounds like a soft reboot.  The Flash starts up it’s eighth season with an Armageddon sized bang.  Discovery joins Prodigy with a complete lack of information other than episode number.  The Doctor continue to explore a planet that seems to somehow be the source of time.  The Good Doctor steps up to make it clear it’s not about a Time Lord with an episode about one heart.  The Legends of Tomorrow show up somewhere new and unknown, and meet a god in the bathroom.  Batwoman does some gardening.  Blacklist has Dembe discovering the downsides of working for the FBI.  Foundation gives us their season finale.

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.

Does the same old, same old make you a Depressed Consumer of television?  Well, I have a devil of a great announcement, as both Robot Chicken and Lucifer return to give you something different to watch, and The Boys has another “News” special.  Also, if the infernal puns about Lucifer episodes bother you, this is the final season so those should be going away too!  Evil also gives us an cranial anatomy lesson, and American Horror Story examines their town’s history.  If you aren’t into the darkness, you can enjoy some animation on Star Trek: Lower Decks, Miraculous, My Hero Acadamia, and What If, which appears to be bringing the first half of the show together.  Staying with the comics, The Legends end their season basedon a wacky plan from the teams alternative pharmacist, Stargirl hits some stormy weather, Supergirl fights urban renewal, and the Titans explore democracy.  In Riverdale, everyone’s favorite cat themed musicians return.  In See find true north.  SurrealEstate has a wedding.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2021 August 22

As the schools start back up, I Doubt Classroom televisions will be as entertaining as the Bureau’s Breakroom.  This week, the Legends deal with babies, Stargirl deals with siblings, Supergirl makes a triumphant return after her more popular cousin’s season ends, and Titans bring someone back from the dead.  What If examines what would have happened if the more popular Odin son was banished to Earth.  Riverdale  remakes a Tarantino film.  American Horror Story returns for Double Feature.  See also returns to show off how dystopic a world where you can’t see Jason Momoa’s muscles would be.  If you need to get away from that bleak future, Star Trek Lower Decks gives us a comedic alternative.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2021 August 15

Are you Definitely Caught up from last week?  This week is a tad bit lighter, but not by much.  First, the Legends stay in for a bottle episode, Stargirl actually uses a character named Richard Switft, Superman and Lois confront their worst nightmare, and the Titans meet Blackfire.  If you prefer to visit the MCU, you’ll have to take a detour into the universe where T’Challa is Star Lord.  In Riverdale, Hiram exposites all over Reggie.  Star Trek’s Lower Decks speak in metaphors.  SurrealEstate counts down from six as house guests are murdered.
