Riverdale Season 1 Episode 10 – TV Review

Riverdale The Lost Weekend Veronica dance battle

Also, there are multiple Archie shirtless scenes this episode.

The very episode after I complained about Riverdale not having enough stupid, fluffy teen stuff, and they have a party episode.

With a dance battle.

And multiple Archie shirtless scenes.

All things just keep getting better.

Riverdale Season 1 Episode 9 – TV Review

Riverdale La Grande Cheryl teal dress

And she’s even more flawless.

The Vampire Diaries Season 7 Episode 3 – TV Review

TVD Age of Innocence Damon shirtless

“The Damon Hotness Parade” just doesn’t feel the same, you know?

And so it begins. Just like the worst parts of the Twilight movies, we must endure period flashbacks to the previous lives of the resident vampire family.

And we already did that (and are still doing that, dammit) with the Original vampires.

I told you the Heretics were just lousy knock-offs.
