Riverdale Season 4 Episode 6 – TV Review

If I wanted something dark and boring, CW, I’d go back to my actual life. Duh.

The non-Betty subplots of this episode are so appallingly bad that I won’t even vaguely reference them this time.

It’s unfathomable to me how anyone who was involved in the production of the stellar first season of Riverdale could look at what it’s become and say they’re proud of it.

All hope is lost. The second Betty’s storyline hits a bump the road, I’m abandoning ship, y’all.

Riverdale Season 3 Episode 22 – TV Review

Or, sigh, is it?

At multiple points while watching this episode I had to pause to genuinely shout at how stupid and bad this show has become.

And while I would usually be the kind of person to play that old standard of “I’d rather be mad at something than apathetic at something” when it comes to bad entertainment, I don’t believe I’d use that on Riverdale.

At this point, I’ll take unambitious, tepid Riverdale over this overblown garbage if it means no more evil board games, mafiosos, gangs, cults, or hallucinatory candy drug scourges.

I’ve had enough, man.

Riverdale Prisoners Cheryl River Vixens funeral uniforms

With this kind of sports uniform budget blowout, it now makes sense that they were forced to hire a paedophile as the music teacher.

How do you follow up a musical episode?

Well, if you’re Riverdale, you get the fucking lead out and go absolutely crazy with everyone’s subplots, including near-rape, kidnapping, and murder.

Welcome back, Riverdale. Last week wasn’t just a fluke.

Riverdale Season 2 Episode 18 – TV Review

Riverdale A Night to Remember Cheryl Carrie blood candelabra

Cheryl, like Riverdale, is reclaiming her winning moves.

It’s no coincidence that Riverdale chose to echo one of the best shots from the Season 1 finale this week, as this episode is confidently the best Riverdale we’ve had since Season 2 began.

Let’s just all agree that as fun as a musical episode can be, we don’t want Riverdale to turn into Glee, okay?

Riverdale Season 2 Episode 17 – TV Review

Riverdale The Noose Tightens Toni Cheryl kiss

But I’ll give this one a pass because it’s atmospheric.

Who knew that in an episode about thwarting the evils of gay conversion that our true hope spot would be the realisation of just how pathetically fragile Hiram is, and the confirmation of Archie’s unfounded bravado?

It’s good to be back, Riverdale.

Riverdale Season 2 Episode 15 – TV Review

Riverdale There Will Be Blood Archie shirtless

We’ll never say no to more shirtless Archie.

But don’t get too excited just yet.

There’s a still a whole lotta Lodge mafia family bullshit, character inconsistency, and even some fresh twinanigans.

But you know what I realised today? At least we’re not dealing with Serpent drama, anymore.

And for that, I’m grateful.

Riverdale Season 2 Episode 14 – TV Review

Riverdale The Hills Have Eyes Betty hot tub drink

But get that parasol out of the way. It’s taking up valuable space that could be used to fit in more alcohol.

Riverdale the show apparently feels the same, too, as it continues to sip leisurely from a not-that-good cocktail and be dour and bitter.

The Season 2 blues are no joke.
