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 Season 3 Episode 20 – TV Review

There you go.

At one point this episode, Betty says “I just want this to end.” And I could not fucking agree more.

How the hell did Riverdale manage to botch even the prom episode (thankfully, only Junior Prom. So they’ll have another chance later)?

Dear God, please let Season 4 bring us back to form.

Riverdale Season 3 Episode 19 – TV Review

Nailed it.

This episode reminded me a lot of Episode 21 from last season, aka Riverdale: Infinity War.

And what timing, too, as Endgame just came out.

I haven’t seen it, yet, but I sure hope Endgame has more to offer than Riverdale.

Riverdale Season 3 Episode 18 – TV Review

And Riverdale Season 3 truly has been the darkest of times.

My thoughts before going into this episode were “this episode titled after one of my favourite three movies of all time better not be bad.”

Ah, to be that young and optimistic. How foolish I was. Because this Jawbreaker is, like all of Riverdale Season 3, just fucking broken.

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?

Hey, in an episode without Cheryl, it’s the only thing keeping me going.

Riverdale Season 2 Episode 22 – TV Review

Riverdale Brave New World Kevin Moose kiss

It’s a gay off.

Despite Kevin and Moose finally getting it together after all this time, this episode has nowhere near the sense of culmination that the Season 1 finale did.

Probably because Season 1 was a slight-to-moderately heightened teen soap opera, whereas Season 2 is this blood-drenched, gangland nonsense, serial killer pit of darkness.

Reel it in, Season 3. Reel it in.

Riverdale Judgement Night The Killing of a Sacred Deer Cheryl archer

But, like, yeah. It is.

At multiple points in my notes for this episode I wrote “This episode is too fucking much.”

Which for Riverdale is exactly the right amount.
