Riverdale: The Official Thread -- Part 2

Continuing the discussion of life with Archie and the gang: Jughead, Betty, Veronica, and Slutty Miss Grundy.

Is it just me or is Ethel kind of shifty? The way she slid away when Cheryl shows up during the gang's adventure and then, surprise, being the one who found the book?

I rolled my eyes about the After School special dialoge (these are wonderful, brave, girls ... don't ever call them sluts again!) though.

Could Polly be Jason's reason to fake his own death? Did they want to run off together Romeo and Juliet style because of their parents hating each other?

Alice, Betty's mom, getting slapped at the party was hilariously campy.

I love the show. It's so Twilight (the dark, brooding, teenage angst in a remote town) meets Gossip Girl.

Jughead seemed more fun in this episode, because of his investigative journalism adventure.

The Cole Sprouse fan who keeps saying he's the best thing ever has made me start hating Sprouse. When I saw the pic in R64 I immediately felt annoyed by that face. I've never seen Sprouse anywhere else before (or if I have I don't remember it). His presence in Riverdale so far has been minimal, and in no way warrants the countless HE'S TEH BEST THING IN RIVERDALE!!! posts. Newsflash: he's not.

Same happened with Janbot and Janet Jackson. I used to like Janet and I might end up liking Sprouse at some point but when superfans start forcefeeding their obsessions things get rough.

R65 To each his own, but I find most of the other characters boring clones you see in any old teen soap. Only Jughead still has a chance to surprise, but from the spoilers above, it seems he too will become another stereotype. But I will watch the rest of this season to see for myself.

R72 There are teens and there are teens.

Most of the CW characters are younger twenty-somethings. These characters are supposed to be 15. The star character is getting statutory raped by a teacher. They've gone a bit far here. The producer doing pseudo porn in :Looking" was one thing, those characters weren't 15. This is a bit much.

And they're playing games by having the actual actors be older. Again, they should have just set it in college.

Was Jughead's dad Skeet Ulrich? I was amazed at how handsome the actor was, but did not recognize him at all.

What happened to Jughead's sister Jellybean (referred to in this episode!) if Jughead is homeless? I can't see the dad caring for her.

I love it when they show Veronica wearing her ridiculous cape.

Madchen Amick has the worst role. Betty Cooper's mom is always practically foaming at the mouth. It's much too over the top, as is Cheryl's snide bitchiness. Veronica called it exactly tonight when she said Cheryl is a character from a teen movie from the 90s, but she herself is not.

I agree both are over the top. I was annoyed in the scene where Betty throws a bitch fest on the Andrews door steps. I think the writers are setting up Betty to punished for her nosiness at some point by either having her framed and arrested for Jason's murder or the Grundy imposter returns and goes psycho on her.

Although judging by what happened earlier Kevin is a regular slut, and so was the gangbanger. They knew what they were doing. In any case what was shown perfectly fit the show's atmosphere.

I really enjoyed when the sheriff dad (a hottie obviously; I've always loved him) asked Kevin to be careful with his sexapades. I was immediately reminded of Joey Pollari's tragic figure in American Crime. Stay safe Kevin!

I don't know what it is about Betty. She seems too much of goody two shoes and OMG! she writes about her friends' secrets in her diary which has no lock or is super hidden somewhere from her nosy helicopter parenting mom? Why did she even take Mrs. Grundy's gun with her???? I love her over the top mom. The scene with her, her husband and Archie's father was funny.

I love the dark and intense color pallette that makes Archie's hair pop even more.

The scene of Kevin with his dad in his office gave me total MTV's Teen Wolf vibes with Stiles and his sheriff dad and how they interact with each other (there even was a murder case board with red thread which Stiles used to have in his room).

I like that they have former teen high school show regulars as conservative adults now (Luke Perry, Robin Givens), like Degrassi (except that the latter just kept the same characters from older eras PF the same show). Are any of the other adults in Riverdale former teen beat stars? That Skeet guy?

Also, am I the only one who thinks Cole Sprouse is too mechanical and sluggish as an actor? No matter how dark or moody the character, he needs to pick up the pace and make it all flow a bit more naturally.

Finally, it's obvious r104 has never experienced bathhouse/rest-stop/peep show/ park style anonymous sex. Not saying it's the only gay option, but it should be tried at least once in life. I try it as often as I can, am in my 50's , and have never had any STD's. As I've said often, it's what you do, not how many times or where you do it.

by Anonymousreply 15302/18/2017

So we should all chime in and report what era Archie comics we read. That may help us understand more the demographics of the opinions here expressed.

And I'll start. I was born in 1960 so many of the Archie comics I read were from the mid to late sixties/early seventies. Betty wore mini skirts and go go boots, Veronica - being more trendy and ahead of the curve -wore bell bottoms and head bands. Reggie wore a scarf, Jughead wore a sweater and a crown, Moose wore football jerseys, Ethel wore a big bow and was flat chested....and Archie still wore 1930's clothes - just like the jalopy he drove (where I learned the meaning of the term) which was from the late twenties.

Oh, and Sugar Sugar was the number one hit of a year that included many rock classics and masterpieces, so the Archies were the rage and their morning cartoon show was not to be missed.

R154 There was a cartoon show? Missed all that... all I know of Archie universe is the love triangle and Jughead's love of burgers. Never heard of Reggie or Ethel or Dilton. I do know Kevin Keller since I read his comics when they came out a few years ago, except TV Kevin is not much like comic Kevin other than being gay.

I'm not really complaining about him, R158. I just don't see his performance rising above anyone else's. I don't see flair. I see sleepiness.

But then, Jughead was pretty sluggish in the comics. He hardly ever opened his eyes, IIRC.

I like that the show has figured out why this characters would actually hang out together (which is always surprising in the comic book). Archie and Betty are neighbors; Archie and Jughead are childhood friends; Betty and Jughead are on the student paper together; Kevin wants to be faghag to the prettiest girls in school, Betty and Veronica, and they bond over their mutual friendship with him and being cheerleaders together.

The ridiculously over-the-top bright red edges to her white hair's top curls were so much in keeping with the aesthetic of this show, as was the obvious contact lens to create her cast in one eye.

I also love that there's a "Dynasty" or "Dallas" like family feud at the heart of all of this and the empire at the hart of it was built on... maple syrup.

by Anonymousreply 24002/24/2017

The character of Archie is unusual for a show like this. He's self-centered, and obsessed with furthering his music career so he can get out of Riverdale. He has a sexual vibe with the girls who are more exotic to him (Miss Grundy, Veronica when she first came to town, now Val), but he just doesn't seem to connect with anyone else. But it's weird to have him at the center of the show, since he's less connected with people than any of the other major characters.

by Anonymousreply 24102/24/2017

And once again Archie's first scene in the latest episode is him being all sweaty and shirtless. Like it's some identifier: This episode's gonna be good!

So the Blossoms and the Coopers have a family feud going and along come Jason and Polly falling head over heels in love. They want to run off together. It's very Romeo and Juliet. Was Polly faking a suicide (like Jason) and her dad mistook it for real or did he find out about Jason and sent her away because of being crazy in love with Jason?

If Jason was really in love with Polly that can only mean that the football team's score book is fake. And who found the score book? Ethel. I think Ethel went Misery on Jason and tortured and killed him (maybe by accident).

It surprises me how much I get drawn into the murder mystery plot about Jason and what really happened to him.

The whole Cooper family is crazy. And yes, that includes Betty (remember the scene where she nearly drowns the guy in the whirlpool while pretending to be someone else?).

KJ Apa didn't really sing on stage, did he? It would be way too crazy that the show lucked out and he can actually sing when he is a total newbie.

Valerie, Hayley Law, seems nice, but it surprises me that the show doesn't pair Archie up with either Betty or Veronica right away.

Archie, despite the great body, is the blandest, least interesting character on this show.

by Anonymousreply 31703/04/2017

R317, Archie's a nice guy. They could make him stand out more if they wanted to but it seems they don't. I don't have a problem with Archie's blandness, if you can even call it that, and personally I find characters like Jughead and Betty way less interesting. Not that I don't care about them but I like Archie more. I like his singing and I like his smile, and the way he's basically a very good guy. My only wish would be to make him fall in love with Kevin but that's not gonna happen.

And as we all know the show's called Riverdale, not Archie. BTW, where did Moose go? The show's concentrating a bit too much on the teen girl drama now, although I guess that's the demographic they're after.

by Anonymousreply 31803/04/2017

Archie is kind of a self centered dick. In the latest episode he has no problem with dumping Veronica, who generously offered to join him on stage to conquer his stage fright, for Valeri, who quit Josie and the Pussycats for him. Then he gets all puppy dog cute when Veronica throws a temper tantrum and you never get the feeling his character is really sorry and he acts all cute and wounded. He kind of stumbles around in life like an elephant in a China Shop and others around him forgive him way too quickly because he's all cute and sow-ry.

I don't know exactly where they are going with his character, but I think he could turn out to be a mass murderer and some fans and his peers on the show still forgive him for being all cute and "aw, shucks!".

R319/R320, I'm sorry but if that's all you got from Archie's actions then you sound like a man-hating lesbian who can't stand that females don't always come first. Archie was trying to be nice and you somehow manage to turn it around like it's all his fault.

This show is starting to get way too teen-girly for my liking. I might have to ditch it.

They should just spin-off Betty and Jughead. Arche's subplot is dragging the show down.

It's an extremely boring show for me when it's just highschool drama. The murder mystery gives it a more adult edge, and Jughead is more like a cynical adult stuck in a teenage body, which makes him more relatable. I think I will just fastfoward through all the Archie scenes from now on.

The same goes for Veronica's mother - Marisol Nichols looks so different... her cheeks seem puffy and she has new teeth or something. The only reason why she seemed familiar was her eyes and occasional expressions...

When they're spreading 22 shows across an entire tv season yes, but Riverdale is only a 13 episode run... it would probably have been better to put them on uninterrupted, especially when it's a soap opera kind of thing.

The show has become so stylized its become a bit bizarre. The whole thing with the Blossoms wearing different shades of red when they're with each other got to be a little much (as did Cheryl's omnipresent spider pins--get the message? She's scheming!).

There are a lot of great things about the show, but I hope over the summer they retool it a bit. I'd like to see Archie made a bit less of a total idiot (he is the most naive character on the entire show), for the color schemes to be less stylized, and for it to become much less about feuding families and more about the teenagers themselves.

I can't even keep track of the family feuds now. Let's see,:the Coopers have hated the Blossoms (and vice-versa) for decades (why Betty's mother, who was not born a Cooper, should care is beyond me); but the Blossoms are also stepping on the Andrewses; and the Lodges (or at least Hiram Lodge with the help of his wife) are fighting with the Blossoms; and the Muggses now also hate the Lodges. And the Andrewses have a love/hate thing with the Joneses.

Maybe I am WAY overthinking it, but I wonder if Alice's "I want my daughter back" tirade wasn't about Polly but the baby Hal forced her to abort?

It's more than obvious that the Blossom parents prefer Archie over the their own daughter. They see Archie as someone they could groom into becoming Jason2.0 . I wouldn't be surprised if they are scheming to adopt him and either killing his dad or forcing the dad to give up his son.

[quote]The show has become so stylized its become a bit bizarre.

I like that. It gives the show some serious campy vibe (like it gives the whole show an almost Alice in Wonderland surreal fantasy feel) with the audience being slapped on the head with a rolled up newspaper.

I felt so cockblocked when Archie stopped the guy from taking his trouser measurements. LOL. But Mary! I swooned when Archie showed up in those hot and fitted, very well put together, clothes running after Valerie at the end (shame that she didn't take him back).

[quote]I can't even keep track of the family feuds now. Let's see,:the Coopers have hated the Blossoms (and vice-versa) for decades (why Betty's mother, who was not born a Cooper, should care is beyond me); but the Blossoms are also stepping on the Andrewses; and the Lodges (or at least Hiram Lodge with the help of his wife) are fighting with the Blossoms; and the Muggses now also hate the Lodges. And the Andrewses have a love/hate thing with the Joneses.

Yeah, the family feud storylines are starting to be annoying as fuck. Alice hating the Blossoms was probably drilled into her by her husband. It's been said that the Blossoms have done other shitty things to other people in town and so that could play into Alice's hate towards them. I predict that the Blossoms' various misdeeds which might include being responsible for Hiram's imprisonment will come to light before the season ends and they end up losing everything.

To be fair, though, most of these shows lose their way after 2 or 3 seasons, GG was no exception.

But Riverdale is going nowhere fast even for CW standards. Hoping they surprise in these few remaining episodes, but next season seems guaranteed to be an embarrassing flop, unless Roberto whatsisname's S2 talk has all just been trolling for some much needed publicity.

I don't know if I read it here or in the comment section of AV Club, but the reason why Archie is so strangely apart from the whole murder mystery plot and the gang is that his storyline with Grundy was supposed to go a lot longer, but the test audience hated it so they cut it short and had to scramble with his character after Grundy left the town. I think that's why he comes off as such a doofus stumbling from one mess into the next.

The disappearance of Josie is odd especially how she was featured quite a bit a in the first few episodes. I have the bad feeling that if or when Sabrina the Teenage Witch is brought on, the writers will probably push her offscreen after a few episodes like they did with Josie.

Ethel is a bit of a saint--I'm glad Shannon Purser is now in nearly every episode because she's a superb actress and I like the idea of having an overweight but well dressed female character. I hope they give her more to do.

This episode was kind of silly, because it made absolutely no sense that Archie would allow the entire school into his house for a kegger (especially knowing how Jughead feels about parties), or that he wouldn't have thrown Cheryl out once she started playing the hateful secret revelation thing. It just doesn't seem very believable to me anyone lets Cheryl do anything, since none of the core characters are afraid of her and most of the other kids at Riverdale HS seem to hate her.

So I've just binged the show in two days and I absolutely love it! Not an American and not familiar with the Archie comics but I have suffered through my share of bad high school drama, i.e. ten seasons of fucking Smallville!

The writing is so crisp and tight and I never cringed once which is very unusual for a CW [italic]and[/italic] a Berlanti show. Even the slower plots (Archie's stint with the Blossoms) don't bother me that much.

The casting of models still bugs though, but I guess the casting couch at CW wants what it wants. The only below average actors so far seem to be Esther and Joaquin so there must be some hidden wisdom in that cum-drenched couch of theirs.

The only thing that made me queasy was Jughead kissing Betty. I'm sorry but I don't buy him as a straight guy [italic]at all[/italic]. And hearing that fans are shipping those actors in real life is just gross to me. Can we maybe value professionalism above wish fulfilment? Perhaps I'm just too old for shit like that.

I've never seen a single thing with the supposedly legendary Molly Ringwald in it so I'll be curious to see what she brings to the table.

Kevin has clearly said (to his dad!) that he hooks up with guys at the river bank and was shown doing so [italic]in the very first episode[/italic], and is currently in a relationship with another guy.

Joaqin continues to rest on pretty but those dead eyes are starting to really creep me out. Kevin's lines when he was dancing with him were bizarre. It's like he was looking into Joaquin's eyes but relaying exposition to the audience. We know you've been hooking up with guys and we also kinda surmised this is your first "serious" boyfriend. Maybe don't waste precious dialogue on already-covered grounds? And the actor playing Jughead should start opening his mouth more when he speaks; there's a vaguely muffled static accompanying all his lines.

Not a one of you mentions Mrs. Blossom Minnie Castevet-ing Polly?

You bitches are slipping.

Does this board really love Jughead? I thought it was just a couple of people plus the really really loud Cole Sprouse Troll.

Aguirre-Sacasa and the writers have no fucking idea what they're doing.

i had to laugh at the scene of Jughead and Archie talking to each other in Archie's bedroom while laying in their separate beds. Of course Jughead wore a shirt and Archie is shirtless and his chest in full view, like, who cares what the scene is about? Archie's chest boobs!!!

R567 Why aren't they fucking? Jughead should be at least be sucking every parts of Archie.

It's time to introduce Alan M. to the story to have a "hot-off" with Archiekins.

by Anonymousreply 56904/29/2017

In the bedroom scene, Archie's stanky kicks were chilling right next to Jug's pillow. That's nasty. Also, Archie's chest boobs for prez!!!

The showrunners know what the audience wants. "It's a third of the way through this episode and we haven't seen Archie's tits yet..."

by Anonymousreply 57104/29/2017

They should have Archie join the swim team!!

Alan M?

[quote]Alan M?

Josie's boyfriend in the comics. I have the feeling that Josie and the Pussycats will be phased out of the show next season. I also wonder if the show EP will follow through with introducing Sabrina, the Teenage Witch.

by Anonymousreply 57404/29/2017

It was said the introduction of Sabrina would happen in the finale episode of season one (or at the beginning of season two?). I wonder if it will have something to do with the Blossoms? They seem like creepy satanists.

When Peggy got those shakes from Mrs. Blossom I was afraid some creepy stuff would be in there like raw meat or blood. I guess I watch way too many horror movies.

I could see a show like this doing a storyline where it's revealed that the Blossom ancestor had witches cast spells so they could become wealthy and the spell gets broken by Sabrina. O,r maybe witches were involved with Jason's death.

The showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa also wrote the Afterlife with Archie zombie comics and there are online theories that Riverdale will turn into that universe.

Will the zombie's tear Archie's shirt off every week?

Watching Riverdale and The Get Down has been depressing. Is this really where we're at with portrayals of homosexuality and gay relationships in 2017? Discouraging.

This thread takes on a somber note when you realise all this thread is is about three fifty year olds getting animated over a show aimed at 12 year old girls.

1) Hermione Lodge is Hispanic, but we've not heard for sure that Hiram Lodge is Hispanic. Veronica may just be half Hispanic.

2) Hiram is actually most often a Protestant name in the United States, now a Jewish name. "Hiram Abif" is the legendary builder of Solomon's Temple, and thus a key figure in Masonic legend, and most Hirams in the US have been named for him. Masonry in the United States is usually associated with protestants.

by Anonymousreply 58404/29/2017

My guess is that the season will end with Hiram Lodge returning to Riverdale to live with Veronica and Hermione. Whatever his ethnicity, he will undoubtedly look like he does in the comics, with a white mustache, white hair, and circular glasses.

by Anonymousreply 58504/29/2017

Hiram Lodge's family name was originally Lodgestein, but his father changed it for professional reasons.

by Anonymousreply 58604/29/2017

I thought they have already cast Mr. Kelly Ripa as Hiram. I don't think he will have white hair.

Can someone provide context for this scene? I don't watch the show but came across the gif on Tumblr and would like to know what's going on. Also, which episode is it in? Thanks in advance!

Gay orgy. They do one of these pretty much every other episode now to help with the ratings. The reason you can't see Jughead or Kevin is because they're on their knees in front of the jock boys. Kevin is getting tea bagged by the Pig guy, while Archie's balls are banging up against Jughead's non-existent chin.

by Anonymousreply 59204/30/2017

I wish that's what happened... instead the scene where that hot gif originated from only lasted for a few seconds at the beginning of the episode. Fuck that.

by Anonymousreply 59304/30/2017

R587 Yeah, Consuelos will play Hiram so there's no reason to speculate about Veronica's ethnicity anymore.

R593 But we do get Kevin pecking his boyfriend on the lips in that episode. Which is totally how hormone-crazed gay teens kiss.

[quote][R593] But we do get Kevin pecking his boyfriend on the lips in that episode. Which is totally how hormone-crazed gay teens kiss.

That may have to do with:

A) the actor playing Joaquin, who seems really uncomfortable playing gay

B) the network, which has had a really hard time with male/male affection, even as Sarah Lance is humping everything with a pussy over on Legends of Tomorrow

Since Casey Cott is apparently going to be a regular next season, and the show has gotten a lot of flack for how they've handled their black characters, I'm betting we're going to see Kevin's eventually husband Clay show up.

You should write for the show, R592. That's some good stuff. Blows Aguirre-Sacasa's inept scribblings out of the water.

And that's a very good question you have, too. I've often pondered Sprouse's strange face and weirdly shaped head myself.

R594, I think Kevin and Whatsisname are the worst, most lifeless portrayal of a gay couple I've ever seen. It's almost a blessing that they're never on screen. Whatsisname in particular always looks dead inside. Really brings out his resemblance to John Travolta.

Filming for season 1 ended months ago. We won't see Hiram until season 2. Also, in some articles it's stated that Mark Consuelos is on that FOX show Pitch and if that show gets renewed for a second season he won't take the Riverdale gig.

You know, if I'd were the showrunner Archie and Jughead would be friends with benefits. They'd blow and fuck each other but have relationships with girls and, of course complain about their girlfriends and discuss story line drama while making out with each other. Of course my show would have to be on HBO or Skinemax.

R598 I laughed like a maniac at that. So goofy and on the nose, but so incredibly funny at the same time.

New thread, please?
