Thanks for the new thread!

I was one of those posters who had been bitching about Joaquin's acting abilities but was prepared to wait some more. Perhaps he was saving all of his acting moves for his confrontation with Kevin? Well, not so much. He's resting on pretty and is totally incapable of any kind of face acting. Good riddance. I did like that trick he did when he would glance at Kevin's mouth when Kevin was talking. That was hot. But even that got stale.

But holy crap, that dude playing Jason. Even in a non-speaking role in the flashbacks, it's clear that he's just a model who's been plucked from the runway a week before filming started. Negative acting talent; he couldn't even sell being beaten up and tied to a chair without vogueing. Don't ever show him again, please.

Cheryl strategically letting out first one tear, then the other. And in sync with the music, no less. That actress is everything.

I was all in for the murder mystery but the breakneck tempo really needs to slow in the next episode. I miss the slower, lighter moments.

I laughed at the big incest reveal. I mean I'd never enter into a sexual relationship with my 3rd cousins, but that's because I knew them well growing up and have always thought of them as family. That was obviously not the case for Jason and Polly, and as far as genetics are concerned it's just a total non-issue. It was hilarious seeing the characters gasping in shock and disgust.

Godspeed, Joaquin. I truly hope we never have to see you again.

I couldnt figure out the real reason for jason's murder--it had something to do with the drugs being hidden in the maple syrup kegs.

I'm curious where the show will go after this. i think it needs to be more about the kids fucking each other (excuse me, kissing each other, since romantic action in Riverdale never seems to go below the waist) in various permutations. but I would guess they are going to keep up the noirish mystery aspect of the show.

What bugs me most on this show (and mystery shows in general these days) is that it's clear that there was no clear vision of who the murderer is at the start of the show or season. It's just an overload of red herrings to turn pretty much every character into a suspect to cover all the bases and yet end up with a killer where the motive and means end up looking goofy as hell.

Just watched the finale. By far the worst hour of TV I've seen in years. It's not even fun in a so-bad-it's-almost-good kind of way anymore. Everything is so on the nose and ridiculously heavy handed... Jughead's storyline makes the notorious Marissa changing schools storyline from the worst season of the OC look like an understated work of art. And Archie's singing is just painful... and, for some reason, they just won't make that ungodly noise stop. Done with this show.

I was the biggest fan of the first ten episodes, but the last two or three have been just terrible. Like I said, slow down the pace and get back to basics.

Kevin being used as a device for getting people from point A to point B in their school makes me laugh. I hope he gets a better story next season.

Yes, Cheryl's scene on the ice was beautiful but that's also my complaint; don't glamorise suicide attempts and make them seem like you'll finally get that attention and love from everyone that you've always craved.

Cole needs to stop with that cosmic black hair dye and embrace his natural hair colour. Also, I finally figured out why Archie is such a goofball in my eyes: he has the swimmer's body and the voice of a nerd. A most delightful mismatch.

The showrunner early in the season said that Sabrina might pop up in season 1. In last night's finale, there was a line about "something wicked coming". Maybe, they will bring her in early season 2. I could see some kind of storyline, in which Penelope Blossom uses Sabrina to get her wealth back or Cheryl somehow gets involved with the occult.

But I thought overall the episode was decent enough for Riverdale. Corny, campy, shirtless Archie, Cheryl delivers the drama!, Betty has a big brother (blond adonis, no doubt)!, Archie maybe losing his dad (oh no! Not Luke Perry!).

I was hugely disappointed not to see Sabrina the Teenaged Witch or Hiram Lodge in the season finale. We've also yet to see Midge Klump (who has been mentioned) or Nancy Woods from the comics--Nancy would be a nice counterpoint to Josie and the Pussycats: a black female student who isn't a diva.

I agree the last episode was the worst of the season. Penelope Blossom was looking at Cheryl outside of the mansion as it burned to the ground like, "Oh, you scamp!" and the introduction of the plot decide of Betty's longlost older brother seems really silly (in the comics, she has an older brother named Chic). I also am amazed the main characters are so skinny given how many malteds they're constantly consuming.

I still like the show, even with it's flaws. But I do have a question. Is this show like Gotham where it's not set in any particular time period? For instance, at the hospital, the doctors and nurses were in old fashioned gear. The cars are all from all different periods. There are modern cell phone, but the tech seems to be from multiple eras. Just wondering.

Gave it a try this season, and I can't get through the first episode. Archie is just so boring, and Jughead has no bite anymore. He's just Betty's bitch, I mean, bf. Don't care about any of the other characters including the gay one. Even the bland Kevin Keller in the comic books is more interesting than this gay best friend on screen. So it's bye bye Riverdale for me.

The last episode was so good! We finally got more Kevin. He was the character that got least screen time last season, it's about damn time they expand on his home life, sex life etc. Also, I like the relationship between him and Moose, they have chemistry. I wouldn't mind them ending up together, he really seems to care about Kevin, what he said to him was really sweet. I think he likes him in a romantic way too. I hope they go somewhere with these two, it would be such a missed opportunity if they didn't. I wouldn't even mind a slow burn storyline, as long as it's done well. I want them to hang out more, have conversations like the one in the hospital, just building a relationship.

Just saw the last 2 episodes, and they are decidedly better than the first one. The storytelling has improved. The scenes seen shorter, and the pace is quicker in moving the plot along. Now I see the benefit of having Jughead go to another school, so he can have scenes alone and away from Betty and Archie, both of whom are such dull presence. Kevin's story is pretty good, but a bit preachy. But then things screeched to a halt with that ridiculous scene with the worst acting... the Archie and the Red Circle video at the end of episode 3. It felt more like an ad for a new S/M club in town. lol

My prediction is that the Black Hood won't be anyone we've already seen on the show because there's really no one interesting he could be. He's older than the kids, but he can't be Fred Andrews (he shot him) or F. P. Jones (he was in prison when the Red Hood shot Fred) or Smithers (too fat) or Mr. Weatherbee (who is black) or Sheriff Keller (who would he be obsessed with Betty?). That leaves only one suspect as a major male character on the show who is the right age--Mr.Lodge--and that's too obvious, because he's been fingered on the show as the most likely suspect.

It's someone obsessed with Betty, so I think it's going to be a character from the comics who we've yet to see on the show. in the comics, Betty has not only a sister Polly (who we've seen on the show), but also a brother, Chic--I predict the Black Hood is going to be her long-lost brother Chic.

Mädchen Amick's entrance in the slutty snake dress was very funny, but they had no follow-up for it, which was disappointing. I assume it was so she could take ownership about the revelation of her sordid past, but it was just kind of tossed in there.

I hope Betty's psychological torture ends soon. That "Lollipop" ringtone is so annoying.

So far the series's camp classic moment was last night when all the kids (except for Betty, and Jughead and Toni, who were not there) were at the party tripping on Jingle Jangle--even Archie! I think that's the first time I've ever seen drug use tossed off so casually on a TV show--there was no discussion of what it meant for Veronica, Archie, Kevin, and Josie and the Pussycats to use drugs, nor was there even a wink (as on "That 70s Show')--it was just assumed this is a normal part of life for them, and the only person who had any sort of minor ethical struggle with it was Archie.

I thought it was rather poignant that they chose Cheryl as Nick's roofie victim. Even a slutty and crazy Queen Bee like her still needs to be sober and consent to what is going on. And you know she would have give him at least a handjob (but that's not what that creep wanted).
