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 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 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 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 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 6 – TV Review

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.

Riverdale Season 3 Episode 4 – TV Review

Riverdale The Midnight Club Fred Alice kiss

I think I might just have a 90s fashion fetish.

Get your nostalgia goggles on and prepare to be confused what decade you’re in, as we get the hotly awaited flashback episode where all our main teen cast portray their parents in the 90s, but the show kind of forgets and instead thinks it’s an 80s reference episode.

But the lewks are delish, so it’s okay.
