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

The list of new shows shortens, but it would have been a feat of dedication to finish the Umbrella Academy already.  Perry Mason continues his deeper investigation into the churches extra investments, while Stargirl goes on the run from the villains.  It’s a Brand New Day, and the sun is high on SHIELD, while the Doom Patrol gets into candle making.  Once you’re done with that, you can watch a Muppet version of a put-upon SysAdmin deal with … well, muppets.

Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2020 July 26

Another summer week, another light list.  Perry Mason actually starts being a lawyer this week.  Stargirl gets to discover more about her school’s janitor, while the Doom Patrol tackles their daddy issues.  The Agents return to the eighties after their bottle episode last week.  If that wasn’t enough Comics for you this week, Netflix has stashed something away for just such a rainy day: The Umbrella Academy drops season two on Friday!  If you were just looking for cheap laughs, Robot Chicken drops a few episodes to end their season.

[Edit to add:] Muppets Now comes out this week.  Is that the Genre enough that it should be included here for Bureau 42?  It certainly is no less so appropriate than Perry Mason, so it is included.  As always, feel free to debate and comment if something should not be added or if something good is being missed.
