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 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 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.

Riverdale Season 3 Episode 15 – TV Review

Riverdale American Dreams Cheryl red dress

A slo-mo step.

It’s another shit episode of Riverdale. Not much more complicated than that.

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 9 – TV Review

Riverdale No Exit Archie shirtless

And I’m just not sure if it’s enough.

The truth is, this post was delayed because I actually had something to do in the real world there for a while.

But I’d be equally happy to say that it was because I just don’t care about Riverdale, anymore.

Because I just don’t care about Riverdale, anymore.

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 5 – TV Review

Riverdale The Great Escape Archie bondage

Well, I am a dark queen.

Archie tied up and defenseless (and shirtless) is a good start to the episode.

Probably could have done without the forcible branding of tabletop RPG symbols onto him. Underground fight clubs were one thing, but burning inmates with hot metal pokers is too far, man.

Now the makeup department’s going to have to remember that for continuity every time Archie takes his shirt off. And that’s a lot.

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.
