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

Riverdale Manhunter Archie Kevin bunker

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.

Legacies Season 1 Episode 2 – TV Review

Legacies Some People Just Want to Watch the World Burn Penelope sassy

Save us, mean girl wan Kenobi. You’re our only hope.

You wouldn’t expect an episode with an actual dragon to be this cold and limp, but here we are.

You did it, Legacies. You made the teen drama more compelling than an actual dragon.

And when the teen drama is this tepid, that’s quite an achievement.

Legacies Season 1 Episode 1 – TV Review

Legacies This is the Part Where You Run Hope

You can’t sit with us, Hope.

Goddamn, CW. Do I have to watch another pilot episode about fledgling witches?

And oof, what a bad choice to come out with your teen supernatural creatures show at the same time as Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.

The CW ain’t got that Netflix money, honey.
