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

As the first week past the Vernal Equinox, spring is here!  The season finale of American Gods lands this week as we can see if Wednesdays preparations were enough.  Batwoman gets a chance to see much of a batwoman she really is.  Pennyworth and Black Lightning don’t get use a description, but the titles suggest Pennyworth has a drink, and Black Lightning appears to indicate a returning character.  The Flash has the episode that would have been the season premier if it hadn’t been delayed.  Superman & Lois promise us the best of the ten seasons of the previous Superman show (and I am all for that.)  Other comic book inspired television gives us Riverdale’s kids staff now coping has a dark and grim defeats.  The Falcon and The Winter Soldier appears to be following WandaVisions path and not giving us a description or even an episode title before the show drops.  The Good Doctor also attempts to take on another very difficult topic as Shaun and Lea decides how to handle an unplanned life change.  The Blacklist appears to go geocaching, which will be great to get everyone in the mood to go hike now that spring has arrived.  While I tend to skip the animated shows in this write up, if you have an eight and twelve year old set of little girls at home who likes non-English based superhero animation, you’ll be happy to hear that Miraculous season four will premier this week, too.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2021 π Day

With math on the mind, the Dividend Calculators at the CW are managing to get their shows out despite obvious cautionary changes to the productions.  While Batwoman debates the merits of not winnowing down the cast further, Pennyworth doesn’t mind bringing his together.  Black Lightning swaps actresses, but potentially scares away some cast, The Flash brings back Ralph’s would-be-wife, but leave the cancelled cast member off the story, Superman and Lois decide they can be safer by just going outside and take in some highschool football while they are there, and the “kids” of Riverdale all stop to wonder just what it is they are actually doing.  If you still think you need precautions, you can always say a prayer to the American Gods, but don’t expect a response; they are pretty busy solidifying their alliances for the war.  Did you enjoy your week off last week without WandaVision?  Well, I hope you got your rest in, because this Friday they next MCU television series launches as The Falcon and the Winter Soldier start their buddy story.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2021 February 28

More of the comic shows are returning, Despite Corona, even if in typical Flash timing, he’s late.  His season premier is really the conclusion to last season.  Batwoman gives us an episode wish to earn the adjective “late”, and Superman & Lois take up residence back in Clark’s small villa.  Black Lightning faces his big bad to say to leave him alone, because that always works out as expected.  American Gods get a lot of surprises for beings claiming omniscience.  WandaVision gives us a finale for a series that seemed easily dismissed at first, but has gained popularity enough that you have to stay offline on Fridays until you see the episode if you want to avoid spoilers.  The Blacklist brings back Elizabeth, at lease according to the “next week on” segment.

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 15

I hope you are all staying healthy.  If you find yourself quarantined or off work or trapped at home with your offspring while schools are closed, at least there is plenty of shows this week.  While you are Disinfecting for Corona, Batwoman will be exploring Alice’s story, Supergirl defends transgender rights, The Flash get some sunshine, and the Legends deal with marriage. Blacklist also returns with a doubleheader to kick off the second half of their season, while Better Call Saul kicks Mike out of town.  If your kids are off of school, you might find yourself watching a lot more of their television, like how my daughter has added the Glee-like Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist to our rotation.  Since it borders on telepathy/empathy/ESP, I was going to include it here to see if anyone else was interested in it.  If you want to keep their brains from atrophying, Neil deGrasse Tyson has you covered with another double helping of Cosmos, to go with your first half of the Picard series finale.  If Picard doesn’t give you enough Artificial Intelligence discussions, Westworld returns this week to help you explore the nature of sentience further.

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 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 16

After the love hangover of last week, The Doctor takes us deep into historic literature, while Trixie works with a mother who can’t see how much help the Midwives are being.  The DC shows switch up a bit, while Batwoman has a crisis of sisters, Supergirl continues the visit from Season One Winn, while the Flash brings us an Elongated Man episode, and the Legends try to work Zari back into the show.  The Good Doctor keeps pitting his two girlfriends against each other, and our favorite retired Star Fleet admiral, with help from an attractive ex-Borg, visit the exciting site of Freecloud.

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.)
