Riverdale Season 4 Episode 3 – TV Review

It’d be rough, bitch.

About halfway through this episode I realised I’d finally fucking had it, and had decided I’d be throwing Riverdale into the Discontinued pile where it belongs (and, if we’re being honest with ourselves, has belonged for a long time).

But Betty, her radiant self, has brought me to a compromise: I’m only going to cover her from now on.

No more Archie and his gym/community centre bullshit. No more Veronica and her relentless, eye-rollingly ridiculous mafia crap. And now with Jughead at some arbitrary private (and apparently boarding?) school, no more of that shit, either.

Just Betty being the only character left on this show with a shred of empathy.

And Chad Michael Murray with his shirt mostly off. Let’s not forget about that.

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 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 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 14 – TV Review

Riverdale Fire Walk With Me Betty

Riverdale couldn’t even wait until Season 5 to be bad enough for me to make that joke. For shame.

Remember the resolution I made last episode to just grimly soldier on through this travesty of a season?

This is me. Soldiering.

Riverdale Requiem for a Welterweight Betty crying

And it was so good, too.

They say thirteen is unlucky for some.

But Riverdale’s out of its damn mind if it thinks it can blame bad luck on what a colossal turd this episode is.

You made this bed yourself, bitch. You did this.
