Riverdale: The Official Thread -- Part 3

And Jason Blossom's murder is ...

by Anonymousreply 60007/23/2018

WTF??? Jason Blossom got killed by his dad, Clifford Blossom, and the Blossoms are drug lords (that's what Jason wanted to get away from)?

MurderER. So sorry for the typo.

by Anonymousreply 205/05/2017

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 [italic]did[/italic] 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 [italic]really[/italic] needs to slow in the next episode. I miss the slower, lighter moments.

by Anonymousreply 305/05/2017

Wow, that was a REALLY good episode.

That moment of Cheryl and her mom pointing to the maple storage shed in syncronicity was soooooo creepy.

by Anonymousreply 505/05/2017

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.

by Anonymousreply 605/05/2017

Glad they are done with the stupid murder... it started good, but degenerated into a farce with bad writing and worse acting. Even in this episode, only Cole put some effort into acting. Everyone else was just mugging or overacting.

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.

by Anonymousreply 1505/05/2017

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.

r15, Kevin did discuss the size of Moose's cock with Betty in an early episode, so they at least moved from kissing to something.

They should just drop the entire Pussycats/Archie's music component of the show. It's not going anywhere interesting and they already shelved it for the last few episodes without anybody missing it.

Only problem is they'd get flak from the diversity police.

R25, they'd deserve it for going on and on about diversity and parading Josie around as part of the main cast while not showing her at all in the actual show. If they just didn't care about diversity at all, then sure, whatever, it's their show. But they're trying to have their cake and eat it too. It's pathetic. Oh well, RAS is a corny sleaze, so it's not like this particular sleazy move has been a huge surprise.

I find it hard to believe they'd write Luke Perry off the show after one season. Although I suppose they could him in a dream/Archie's imagination sort of way.

by Anonymousreply 2805/11/2017

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.

by Anonymousreply 2905/11/2017

Luke pretty much has to survive. Or Archie will have to go live in Chicago, which kinda kills the show.

And didn't they say we'd see Sabrina the Teenage Witch in the finale, and that she'd become a regular character in season two? Did I blink and miss that?

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.

I just can't with some stuff, like Archie playing guitar with his injured hand in a cast! Not to mention Archie punching the ice with his bare fist!

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!).

There is a lot to complain about when it comes to Riverdale, but I can't wait for the next season.

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.

At first, I was certain Betty said Fuck's Forest while she was confronting Kevin so I had to check the CC and of course, it was Fox Forest.

I was glad he finally called her out on her hetero privilege and just how much easier she has it. Having said that, I hope his slut phase ends soon and that he gets a steady boyfriend again.

by Anonymousreply 13210/28/2017

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.

by Anonymousreply 13310/28/2017

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

Bump for tonight. I am only watching for Jughead

by Anonymousreply 13511/01/2017

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.

The fourth episode was pretty dull since it centered on Archie as a leader of the "Red Circle" and Apa was as charisma free as before so it just fell flat. The whole Black Hood mystery is already getting tiresome. Hope they don't drag this thing on for the whole season.

I watched last night. It is one thing to explore the dark side, but the show is really dreary and depressing. Everyone is miserable and a few of them are being sadistically tormented. It also takes itself way to seriously and the Southside stuff seems pretty cliche ridden. I enjoyed it last year, and I think the cast is actually pretty decent for this type of show, but the couple of episodes I have caught this year have fallen flat.

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 hilarious that all the kids made that new city boy their leader and just took drugs to be as cool as new city boy. Peer pressure starts with a (charismatic) leader getting the ball rolling.

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).

Love Alice's entrance at the party (I'm a member of the Southside Serpents, so what?). But does that mean they just dismiss her hypocrisy for going after the Southside Serpents?

I flipped on the last 20 minutes or so and the wrestling singlets were a bit bizarre even for this show. With the really low neck and back showing off the nipples they looked like they were from some adult video rather than a school uniform. I know they are going for the beefcake and not necessarily realism, but I had flashbacks to the video Archie made with all of the shirtless guys around him.

It would probably lessen the tension with the parents, so I see why they want them high school age, but with the stuff the kids are doing, it really seems like they should at least be college age, or at least seniors... Although they look like they are all about to start to study for their GRE, so I suppose it does not really matter.

The wrestling, Kevin beating Archie, Kevin raising his hand to volunteer wrestling with Hiram.

Kevin talking with Betty about her brother being a video gigolo! Betty's brother being a creep even when he's trying to be nice.

Love Cheryl's "cameras aren't here Jackie O." and Penelope's "Well, how do yout think we started with the Maple Syrup business?" and Cheryl's demand to honor her great, great, great grand pappy instead of some general.

Guest star: Graham Greene.

Kevin is a wrestling stud! Now I'll fantasize about his jock built underneath his preppy clothes in all his scenes. Guess I never really took note before because Kevin always seemed so subservient to the others. He even let scrawny ass Jughead kick him out of the room in this episode. So little respect for a secondary character.

by Anonymousreply 26901/25/2018

R246 It's 100% obvious he is. It's probably why Betty's dad despises having him around 'cuz he knows it's not his kid.

I'm also very offended that Kevin kept his shirt on under his singlet this whole episode. But hey, 'least Archie took his off.

by Anonymousreply 27001/25/2018

I'm kinda shocked that we're getting a cam whore storyline on a teenage drama, to be honest. But I'm shocked in a good way and I'm intrigued again after a weak first half of the season.

Chic is so fucking weird looking - again, in a good way - and he moves his head extremely slowly. I bet the director instructed the actor to play him like a serial killer. Still hoping he hooks up with Kevin. I want some gay couple drama already!

I didn't enjoy Araki's directing of those wrestling scenes at all. Too many cuts so they looked like a generic modern action movie where you can barely piece together what's happening. Pretty much all the movement of wrestling was lost by cutting so aggressively.

Sprouse is pulling an Alyson Hannigan and not singing in the upcoming musical episode.

[quote]Apparently, Sprouse isn’t a huge fan of the genre, the EP explains: “Cole and I talked about it a while ago, and I said, ‘How do you feel about musicals?’ At that time, we were going to do Little Shop of Horrors. And he basically said, ‘Listen, I never sang for Disney. It would take a lot.'”

[quote]Sprouse’s aversion to singing apparently extends to real life as well: Aguirre-Sacasa recalls that Riverdale‘s Season 1 wrap party was at “some tiki bar that had a stage, and the bulk of the party was the entire cast and crew [doing] a variety show. So literally every cast member sang but Cole. Every parent, every kid, every crew member sang… except for Cole. So it was like, ‘OK, got it.'”

Don't blame him, really. I can't sing and I wouldn't do it even while plastered in an empty karaoke bar on another continent, let alone on a TV show with such a massive following.

The show takes itself way too seriously, and while issues such as date rape fit organically into the show and were effective, things such as stealing Native American land and most of Jughead's self-righteous bellowing just come off annoying.

Dark is one thing, but everything is dour and depressing - most of the friendships have been fractured or are in tough shape, and everyone seems to cross over the the dark side with ease. Cheryl is not the only character whose personality changes. A number of them have had 180 degree character changes depending on how they fit into the story line.

Jughead is the best character on the show.

Clearly Hiram created the hostile enviroment in Riverdale and then, like the snake oil salesman he is, presented the solution: A for profit prison. I wonder if the real Black Hood killer turns out to be one of Hiram's goons like the pretend FBI agent?

The latest episode is so cringe inducing. The Andy Cohen cameo. The overly dramtic cutting the bond between Archie and Jughead (by Archie cutting Jughead's chains with the chain cutter). Cheryl being reduced to a frightened little girl. All that presidential election talk so that even the last idiot gets it that this is all about how fucked up US politics is with Trump as POTUS.

The only good thing was Archie's mom being back and Alice freaking out about Jughead and Betty having sex (only to say that Jughead's dad is not Chic's dad ... could the twist be that Archie's dad is Chic's dad? It can't be Claudius since that would make Chic a Blossom after all).

Once again a show is ruined by lesbians. They don't mind fleshing out the lesbian characters while the main gay character is STILL on the backburner. Fuck them. I'm done with this show. Kevin Keller deserves better.

They ruined both Archie (now a thug wannabe) and Jughead (a gang member... god, he looks silly acting tough)! Kevin is the one decent character left in this and he's only used as a plot device to push other characters' storyline forward. What a waste.

It's funny when most shows depict lesbians as oppressed when in reality gay men were the persecuted ones. Even the countries that outlaw homosexuality don't care about lesbians, it's only illegal to be a gay man, not lesbian. Parents usually don't have anything against their daughters being lesbians, but if a son turns out to be gay, "the horror"!

I invited my roommate to see Anything Goes with me in December 1988, during the Christmas break. I was fucking blown away by diva love for La LuPone. Something must have happened to me between April and December that made me gay out. Otherwise, I would've felt the same thing for La Buckley.

This show confuses me. So, basically the Black Hood (or someone similar to him) tried to assassinate Fred at the mayoral and got away. Then there is an angry mob outside the jail calling for Fangs' head.

Two questions come to mind: 1) If the Black Hood took credit for Midge's murder, and then the Black Hood (or someone they think is the Black Hood) shot up the mayoral debate, why is there still an angry mob after Fangs? In addition to the fact that there is no credible evidence against him. 2) Why the hell is there a mob on the street when the madman shooter is still on the loose?

It's just so hard to believe Hal was the Black Hood. That actor must have been very hot when he was younger (he's still handsome now), but he has absolutely zero charisma or presence.

Last night's camp classic moment: after Josie has predictably faltered and stopped singing the Star-Sopangled Banner at the school assembly when the cops come in to arrest Archie, for absolutely NO reason she picks it up again as he gets dragged out in handcuffs!

I had to laugh at the idea of Veronica's plans to turn Pops into a speakeasy featuring "world class cabaret acts and fancy cocktails" when she's still a minor!

I'm hoping next season they finally give Kevin more to do. That actor is so sexy--he's got such an angelic boys' face and then a body like statue of a Greek god (though we rarely get to see the latter). His big clinch with Moose was pretty sexy.

I have to say, I'm glad Fangs is dead because he looked too much like the (equally ugly) actor who plays Swee'pea and I could never tell them apart since they both always wear Serpents jackets. It seems stupid the Serpents would accept Jughead (a high school student!!) as their new leader, since most of them are adults. Cheryl as a Serpent might be a good springboard for stories next season--she always gets featured prominently, but the show seems unsure of how to deal with her.

Did anyone else find Mr. Lodge's new Legion of Doom (Penelope Blossom, Mordecai, the new sheriff, Penny) absolutely ridiculous? They reminded me of nothing so much as when Mr Burns gathers the Springfield Republicans in a dark castle and lightning thunders in the background. I still am baffled why they cast Mark Consuelos as Mr. Lodge--he's very fit, but he's a weak actor, and he looks NOTHING like Mr. Lodge in the comics (he won't even grow a mustache and wear glasses).

Fangs isn’t dead anymore, R558. You didn’t catch that last night?

The sad operatic singing during the Serpent's escape to the north side was really weird/lame.

R565 That's because the kids are rarely even in school doing school activities. How do they get their homework done between all the murders and mayhem?

by Anonymousreply 56605/17/2018

In considering the season finale, the only way Hiram's Legion of Doom works as a plot point is if a character ends up in those settings. So, next season, someone goes to Southside Prison and someone ends up in the Southside Brothel.

There is a reason they are still sophomores in high school but clearly in their early 20's.

What do we want? A hard reset! When do we want it? Now!

Even that gay kiss sent an awful message. People who are overcome with grief do all sorts of crazy shit while they're in that weird mental place, trying to process their loss. Unless it's your partner, please don't return a kiss or respond to the sexual advances of a grieving acquaintance or a friend. Just wait a bit instead. I'm sorry but that's just common decency to me. Don't be [italic]that[/italic] person; be best!

Where's Joaquin?

Why did they bring Joaquin back for that one scene ? It made no sense especially if it didn't involve Kevin.

by Anonymousreply 57405/18/2018

Finally saw the finale. It was as underwhelming as I thought. Cheryl becoming a Serpent is so laughable. Kevin is blink and you'll miss him. The restroom kiss is just okay. No real chemistry because Moose has zero personality. The convoluted plot of the Black Hood, the rival gangs and the Lodge gangster business makes zero sense. What a mess of a season. Really have very little enthusiasm to continue watching next season.

Riverdale is now officially a one season wonder. Holy shit, that went off the rails worse than Empire. The show got worse and worse as the year went on. The musical episode was a massive disappointment. They left out the best songs from Carrie, and they left out THE FUCKING PROM SCENE! It was very odd to me that the episode got all 'A' reviews. It was terrible. For my money, the best musical episode ever was Buffy the Vampire Slayer's Once More with Feeling. It set the gold-standard, and THAT is an 'A' On that scale Riverdale/Carrie gets a C at best.

The season finale left me with zero hope that the show will get better from here. I have some suggestions, though.

First and foremost- cut the show to 13 episodes per season. The network tradition of 22 is antiquated and just tends not to breed quality these days. I understand the desire to get to 100 episodes for later syndication, but I think in the end the show will only have long term potential to be profitable in reruns if it's good.

Refocus on the kids- Fucking I couldn't give a shit less about Hiram Lodge- he's gross to look at. In fact, cut ALL of the adults, except Alice Cooper, and maybe just keep FP and Cheryl's mom as recurring. Do more high school plots- bring back the fun Twin Peaks vaguely supernatural stuff, but use is sparingly.

Creative team shake up- fucking FIRE the show runner and most of the writing staff. The writing was insultingly bad. The one exception this year, I thought, was episode 19, the one that followed the musical episode. I thought that was most like the first season, and it was fun to watch. The credited writer was co-producer Cristine Chambers, and this is her only episode so far. Make her head writer or show runner. I speculate that Greg Berlanti was around helping develop season 1, but bolted for most of season 2. Bring him back.

Cast stuff- Get rid of Josie. No room for her. Give her a spin-off if you must, but them trying to shoehorn her into episodes was awful. Cole Sprouse was my favorite thing about season 1. But Jughead became very boring in season 2. Also, he was so hot in season 1. Not sure what happened, but he wasn't at all in season 2. Make Jughead hot again! And get rid of ALL traces of that motherfucking biker gang. Holy shit, they suck.

Homoeroticism, pop-art, and camp- all used effectively in season 1. Let's face it, a big part of the show's appeal are the hot dudes- more fight scenes in the high school locker room, more bro bonding between Archie and Jughead, ect. Season 1 had an amazing, bright color palette- it reminded me of season 1 of the 1966 Batman series. Pop art on television. Season 2 retained it somewhat, but not nearly as often or with the same style. And a dash of smart camp used sparingly was going on in season 1. Much less so, and less effectively in season 2.

R576 is brilliant.

by Anonymousreply 57705/19/2018

I don't understand the Josie thing either. Her Mom actually gets more screen time and story than she does. The CW has her featured in all of the promotional materials and key art for the series, but she really has no storyline or purpose. She's just there. The Mob stuff really took the show off the rails.

This season also turned into Gossip Girl Mob/Psycho Dad edition. Betty and Veronica are not that interesting but their fucking family drama took over the whole season. Season one was way better because it focused on Archie and Jughead (and their dads) while B&V were just in the background.

Choni fans (aka SJW feminists) are bullying Kevin and Moose for "stealing" Cheryl and Toni scenes 😂😂

All of Kevin's gay moments from the second season, handily stitched together.

I still don't understand why he didn't share a single moment with Joaquin when Joaquin returned to Riverdale. Not even a hello. Hopefully, there will be a love triangle in the third season.

by Anonymousreply 58705/27/2018

How convenient that Betty didn't ask whether Chic was killed by the Black Hood or not.

Watched the final four episodes in one take and man, it was such a hot mess. They really try to push Hiram as this big J.R. (Ewing - from Dallas) villain, but it just comes off as so juvenile, because he deals with meddling teens most of the time. I sure hope that Hiram's Legion of Doom implodes in a great, satisfying way.

Maybe I am too spoiled by other shows but that Moose & Kevin kiss was just not enough. I was hoping for more story, more scenes, etc.

Strange how the second season aired in full and still no Sabrina The Teenage Witch spin off in sight even though it was reported that, at some point, the character would make an appearance by the end of season one. I sure hope CW didn't put it on the backburner because of that dreadful looking Charmed reboot.

by Anonymousreply 58805/28/2018

The Sabrina spinoff is coming along just fine. We're discussing it in the thread below. The actress who plays Betty confirmed in an interview earlier this year that the shows are two separate universes so a Sabrina crossover or a cameo won't be happening.

The Charmed reboot looks fine. And we've only seen the trailer so far, though I'm sure even that looks "dreadful" to all the racists out there.

by Anonymousreply 58905/28/2018

The Sabrina spinoff is also a Netflix show, so it's really less a spinoff than an independent show developed by essentially the same creative team.

[bold]Evelyn Evernever Coming To Riverdale Season 3![/bold]

[quote]If you’re a fan of the Little Archie comics, the name Evelyn Evernever should be super familiar. In the comics, Evelyn is portrayed as a shy, self-proclaimed “bou’tiful” gal who is never really a part of the core group of friends. I mean, her BFF is her doll, Minerva.

[quote]According to the Breakdowns we received from our source, Evelyn will be coming to Riverdale to…possibly kidnap Archie?

[quote][EVELYN EVERNEVER]Female, Late Teens – Early 20’s to play Late Teens, Open Ethnicity. Otherworldly, seemingly omnipresent, and a bit odd, Evelyn is Edgar’s daughter and Betty’s new neighbor. She’s eager to befriend Betty, and is surprisingly insightful for her age, but may be hiding dark secrets about herself. (While not required, a possible direction for the role is a girl who is physically reminiscent of “Betty”.) MAJOR RECURRING GUEST STAR.

Archie getting kidnapped? Ugh Im officially over the show. It went from dark, pulpy fun to dark and repititve. This is why I dropped The Walking Dead.
