Riverdale Season 3 Episode 21 – TV Review

How the mighty have fallen.

At least tell me there’s still a compelling Betty storyline?

Isn’t there?

Riverdale Season 3 Episode 8 – TV Review

Riverdale Outbreak Betty asylum

She must be reminiscing on better times. Season 1 times.

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:

Revenge Season 2.

Jesus Christ, CW. Reel it in. If Revenge can come back from international terrorist syndicates and goofy hackers, then I have faith you can survive this endless, evil board game.

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 3 – TV Review

Riverdale As Above, So Below Alice Skeet ship

This one happens to be my personal favourite.

And amidst all the crazy cult theatrics and juvenile detention-based fight clubs in this episode, the thing I had the most difficulty believing was that Veronica’s speakeasy doesn’t serve alcohol.

So let me get this straight: it’s a bar, but it doesn’t serve alcohol, its staff and clientele are children, and by all observations it doesn’t have any alternate exits?

Veronica’s lucky she didn’t need to have any investors, because that would have been one gnarly pitch meeting.

Riverdale Season 3 Episode 2 – TV Review

Riverdale Fortune and Men's Eyes Cheryl bra locker room

As is becoming tradition.

Riverdale may have dropped the ball when it came to absurd, over the top mafia drama last season.

But how do you feel about absurd, over the top prison drama, eh?

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 16 – TV Review

Riverdale Primary Colors New Rules

Well, I guess that’s only one new rule. But it’s a good one.

Fetishistic lesbian slumber parties are an admirable first step, but don’t you think we could use a Molly Ringwald power moment and a dramatic, rain-soaked showdown between Archie and Jughead?

Oh, honey.

Riverdale Season 1 Episode 10 – TV Review

Riverdale The Lost Weekend Veronica dance battle

Also, there are multiple Archie shirtless scenes this episode.

The very episode after I complained about Riverdale not having enough stupid, fluffy teen stuff, and they have a party episode.

With a dance battle.

And multiple Archie shirtless scenes.

All things just keep getting better.

Riverdale Season 1 Episode 9 – TV Review

Riverdale La Grande Cheryl teal dress

And she’s even more flawless.

As delectable as Riverdale’s gothic archness and constant gloom is, I’m finding myself hungry for a bit more teen soap fluff.

It can’t all be dead kids and snowblown maple syrup ceremonies and suicidal fathers.

Even The Vampire Diaries knew that.

Riverdale Season 1 Episode 3 – TV Review

Riverdale Body Double Archie abs

“I may never be a compelling, intelligent character. But I am shredded as hell.”

Again, Archie is still ridiculously sexy. So that’s comforting.

What isn’t comforting is Riverdale’s bizarre foray into Glee-esque sociopolitical commentary.

The third episode of a fledgling, sexy teen show is not the time or place, CW.
