Oh, my note about LMM’s actual pop culture intake was a joke just based on that one tweet. (He is the one who knows “Hey Nong Man Ain’t Nuthin’ Ta Fuck Wit’,” after all.) I really just tried my best not to turn that section into an “I’m a fan of LMM and saw Hamilton on Broadway, so here’s why you’re actually wrong…
Nah, you weren’t the only one. I wondered during the cold open if Joe Lo Truglio had done something new with his hair.
Josie and the Pussycats is a perfect film.
Of course, the most necessary webisodes. But also, I’ve officially retired the webisodes bit. I think I peaked with my final webisode of season five.
Counterpoint: It is a perfect show.
Kevin will be obsessed with gargoyles soon enough. They all will. All hail the Gargoyle King.
The other guest star I’ve been looking forward to this season is Riley Keough (because seriously, how the hell did the show pull that one off? — ETA: wait, this is how), and I had been wondering how the show was going to have Jughead/Archie splinter off for their own side adventure with her. And now we know: It starts…
Penelope is an obvious choice for evil-doing, as evidenced by this episode.
As much as I love this GK stuff, I was really bummed it retroactively turned Tom Keller into a corrupt sheriff. No, not Minetta level but still—now Fred Andrews is definitely the best Riverdale parent (in town), even though he just goes with the flow of his son’s insane life.
So, I have a Gargoyle King theory, assuming we’re really believing it’s a person and not just magical stuff. I want it to be magical stuff though, because I will always push for Riverdale to completely detach from reality. Figured I’d put it here instead of in the review itself.
“But you somehow can’t suspend your disbelief for James not figuring out who Liberty is BEHIND A MASK?”
No need to apologize, I get it.
“I have to wonder, uh, do you even like this show most weeks?” Yup. This is literally the only episode I haven’t cared for this season. In fact, after Legends, this is my favorite of the Arrowverse shows.
I would 100% change it (and have tried to already, so hopefully I can eventually), but I unfortunately can’t attempt to edit this review without Kinja crashing my browser.
I actually do know that, but Head of the Class ended in 1991 and my point was pretty much about how much of a smokeshow Robin Givens was in 1992. Thus, Boomerang. (Also, I feel like I wrote 1992 a lot in this review, only for people to still not get this episode was set in 1992.)
This took place in 1992. The ‘80s soundtrack was typical Riverdale anachronism + The Breakfast Club of it all. (And the Serpents were playing at the end.)
The O.C. season four is a great season of television, so you can admit you more than “kind of liked it.” Don’t let the false narrative that “only the first season was good” get to you!
No problem. Both Veronica and Cheryl technically fill the role of the overachiever rich girl (with Cheryl ticking the mean girl box as well, but since she’s reformed, not as much)—like a Taylor or a Blair. The problem is, Riverdale’s been so concerned with making that role work with Cheryl (and Madelaine Petsch kills…
But she didn’t wear a stealth cape!
