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 30

The CW takes a break this week, but before you reach for Different Content, Lucifer is still finishing his fifth season, and Superman and Lois continues this new phase of Superman’s life where he just supports his family while saving the world.  The Good Doctor starts the season finale, and we travel to Guatemala.  The Handmaid welcomes familiar a new handmaid.  The band is back together on Blacklist dealing with the monster they created while squabbling.  I hope everyone can enjoy the unofficial start to summer that is Memorial Day (in America) and have some some other fun to offset the light television schedule!

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 April 18

Spring seems to have recoiled a bit, as temperatures (at least in my portion of the globe) have turned Distractingly Chilly, much like the number of shows from the Arrowverse, as Batwoman hypocritically chases violent law breakers in masks, Black Lightning talks to the Feds, and Supergirl actually name drops Super Friends.  HBO continues exploring the world of Whedonesque X-Steampunk while they try to come out to society.  Call the Midwife returns for a tenth’s season, this time with more Thalidomide.  Zoey gets her lady friends together.  The Good Doctor also decides to be gender based, but we won’t know how until we watch it.  The Blacklist threatens us with a clip show over the series star who left the show.  The biggest event is most likely the season finale of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, concluding the Bucky/Sam road trip movie fans begged for.

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

At first, I was surprised to see so many new titles, but I think we actually end up with a Decreased Count.  Superman takes the week off to give room for his cousin Supergirl to start her sixth season.  Batwoman admitted that Kate is gone, and starts picking up the pieces.  Pennyworth doesn’t give us a description, but the impending execution implied by the title makes it forgivable, and the Flash faces fears fostered by his foe.  Zoey and her Extraordinary Playlist return, exploring her memory.  The Good Doctor has Claire getting a visit from her deadbeat dad.  On Riverdale, Archie is visited by his former Army general.  The Falcon and the Winter Soldier doesn’t offer us a description either, but if the implications from last week’s episode are to be believed, we will pay a visit to an MCU antagonist.  Red works against his Task Force when they go for one of his contacts.

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 March 7

As we March quickly through this year, Don’t Cool down just yet!  Pennyworth returns to the screen, trying to make it to America, Black Lightning goes on a secret mission to ruin, Flash starts thinking, and Superman starts telling some of his kids about his past.  The American Gods fail their omniscience again with all the characters finding surprises this week.  The Good Doctor goes crazy treating a cancerous comatose case.  Riverdale gets a fire department.  In The Blacklist, Red investigates torturers.

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

There’s a new arrival as Superman and Lois launches their Pilot this week, though there is no sign of his cousin’s show returning.  Elsewhere, Delayed by COVID, Batwoman views some disgusting art and Black Lightning’s wife makes a breakthrough.  Meanwhile, in the MCU, we can see what the newly revealed theme song can give us on WandaVision.  Before we’re out of the comics, be sure we check in with the American Gods as Shadow and his estranged wife explore small town life, and Gizmoduck appears on DuckTales.  Now that we are out of the comic section, Riverdale turns the “kids” to teachers so they don’t need to build new sets.  The Good Doctor deals with ransomware, which I expect will give the IT guys like me watching the show the same reaction a real-world doctor does when watching surgery scenes.  On The Blacklist, some job opportunities present themselves.
