Riverdale Season 3 Episode 12 – TV Review

Riverdale Bizarrodale Kevin Moose kiss

But at least he went out with a bang. Literally.

For an episode without a Betty subplot, things aren’t actually too bad.

It almost makes me forget that Riverdale is introducing yet more gangland bullshit.

Riverdale Season 3 Episode 11 – TV Review

Riverdale The Red Dahlia Betty Penelope

I assume it’s just as dark and grim as Penelope’s lair.

This episode is just really exhausting, you guys.

And I truly want to believe that this avalanche of exposition is Riverdale clearing the decks so we can move forward.

But can we really trust that?

Riverdale Season 3 Episode 10 – TV Review

Riverdale The Stranger Betty

If Rose McGowan’s taught us anything, it’s that truly brave people call themselves brave.

I had an epiphany during this episode: what if this rash of undoing everything the mid-season finale set up is intentional? What if the writers realised the mistakes they made and have decided to walk it all back?

It’s pretty bad that realising Dynasty’s mid-season finale won’t be until next week was actually the second worst realisation I had this week.

The worst was that I finally realised what present day Riverdale has been reminding me of:

Please.

Riverdale Season 3 Episode 7 – TV Review

Riverdale The Man in Black Archie shirtless hay

To be fair, they do know my weakness. But I must overcome!

I’m kinda getting a little tired of Riverdale being shithouse, you know?

Enough with the darkness and everything being so complicated.

Could we please get back to the teen soap operatics in this teen soap opera?

Riverdale Season 3 Episode 6 – TV Review

Riverdale Manhunter Archie Kevin bunker

If you have to ask, Kevin, then the answer is probably “yes.”

I mean, Riverdale is a pretty fucking weird show.

But even by Riverdale standards, this episode is fucking weird.

And I’m not sure if it’s even in a good, Riverdale way.
