Riverdale Season 4 Episode 8 – TV Review

We all know Alice would be unbeatable in the reading challenge.

There is hope yet for anyone who wants more out of Riverdale, as this episode mostly succeeds at the gargantuan task of trying to ground the drama across every subplot.

Sure, the episode winds down by still dipping its toe into this Stonewall Prep, every-Hardy-Boys-author-gets-murdered stupidity. But hey, at least the demonic doll is put to bed on the Cheryl front.

As for Betty? Not a lot on. So the Betty-only Report is gon’ be quick.

Riverdale Season 4 Episode 7 – TV Review

I know I used this one recently, but hey, when the describing-a-piece-of-shit-CW-show shoe fits.

I’m basically taking a pass on this week’s episode.

Save for a last second reveal that I don’t care much about (and if we’re talking last second reveals, Riverdale ain’t got nothing on this week’s Dynasty), Betty’s only here to do legwork for Jughead’s stupid boarding school subplot.

Let’s get this shit on so we can go home.

Riverdale Season 4 Episode 2 – TV Review

I mean, I ain’t mad, dog. But this is a bit much.

Don’t let the gratuitous Mad Dog abs and lingering evil cult drama fool you: there is a tiny smidge of emotional character interactions, and some high school hijinks, hiding in this episode.

Riverdale may one day soon be its former, Season 1 self.

Don’t you want to believe?

Riverdale Season 4 Episode 1 – TV Review

Good God, we can hope.

Yes. I did cry.

It wasn’t a “Camille’s death on The Originals” kind of cry. But it was still pretty solid and embarrassing.

And being solid and embarrassing is what Riverdale should be aspiring to after the slew of sewer sludge we had to put up with last season.

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 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 The Raid Hermione wine

Except I drink white, not red. Ain’t nobody got time for all those antioxidants.

I know this is going to sound crazy, but can you believe that the Betty segments are the only good things about this episode?

It’s got to be a first!

Riverdale Season 3 Episode 16 – TV Review

Riverdale Big Fun Betty

The anger and disappointment has given way to schadenfreude.

Riverdale: you’re not Glee. Stop trying to be Glee. Nobody wants you to be Glee.
