Hey guys! Well, it is time to talk about the second half of Riverdale’s sixth season. I finished watching the first half with a sour taste in my mouth, so let’s see if things could be salvaged in the second half!
How on earth do I describe this? Blatant MCU rip-off superhero multiverse stuff?
Whenever I watch a show or movie, I usually jot down some bullet points of my thoughts, so that when I sit down to write my review (most of the time a lot later than I intended to) I can actually remember stuff. My first not for this season of Riverdale is “The bad writing makes me wanna cry.” I think this should give you a good idea of how I feel about season 6 part 2.
I’ve said this before and I’ll say it another ten thousand times. This show has so much potential, but the writing is abysmally bad. And I don’t mean the fact that this season we are dealing with supernatural stuff and a parallel universe. While this sound a bit crazy, I am convinced that this could have worked out tremendously well, simply if it had been written better.
The second half of this season was not just badly written, it also felt extremely lazy on top of that. I’m going to give some examples so, the following paragraphs will contain spoilers!
Hello, my lovely readers! Oh boy, it’s time for another Riverdale season. How bad is it gonna be this time? Well, we’re about to find out…
I don’t even know how to describe the first half of this season. A clusterfuck rip-off Twilight Zone attempt?
What an on-fire garbage can of a season that was (or first half thereof). Riverdale splits its season in half now and I will keep reviewing both halves separately simply because I wouldn’t be able to remember anything about the first one by the time the second one is airing. Riverdale 6.1 is actually a bit of a special case as it doesn’t yet really continue with the story. It’s as if some of the writers have watched American Horror Stories (which already was terrible) and decided to do the same thing. Somebody really said, “let’s do Twilight Zone but make it shitty”. I would very much like to know what kind of drugs the writers are on, as that is hands down the only explanation for the scripts. What pisses me off is that there is always so much potential. Like, this could have been great. The idea was there, the cast is amazing. But the *execution*. Boy, I don’t have words to convey just how cringy this was. I swear for every step forward there are 864531 steps back.
Hey guys! We’re back with Riverdale, taking a closer look at the second half of Riverdale’s season 5. I wasn’t too impressed with the first half, but maybe they manage to redeem themselves?
Okay, so the timehop has happened, we are still in Riverdale. Archie is still over the place, Betty is on the hunt for a serial killer, Jughead needs to get a grip, Veronica tries to get back to being her old self, while I don’t even know what the heck is going on with Cheryl…
What. A. Giant. Clusterfuck. I don’t have words for how freaking bad this season was. There were moments that has so much potential, this could have been great but overall, I think this is the season I dislike the most so far. This review will feature a lot of spoilers because, believe me, there are *a lot* of things we need to address.
The sheer craziness of some of the plot developments is nothing short of ridiculous. Some episodes were so cringe-worthy, I actually had to stop halfway through to stop halfway through to take a deep breath and a break before finishing. Let’s talk about some of that after the *read more*.
Hey guys! For some reason I am still watching the giant trainwreck that is Riverdale. I’ve had my issues with past seasons but there’s always a spark of potential you can see shimmering through. So, here we are again, hoping that the first half of season five was decent!
Picking up where we left of in season 4, this one concludes the mystery encountered. Once that is neatly wrapped up, we do a little time-hop. After seven years away all our favorites return to Riverdale. And – of course – nothing is as it used to be…
Okay, so what was that wrap up of season 4? To be honest, I was very confused after the final episodes of that one as it seemed they had just stopped somewhere in the middle of the season. I guess it only makes sense that the first episodes of season 5 now have to solve that mystery and make sense of what happened. But I wish they had just done that in the last season and started this one with the time hop.
While that’s just a minor, stylistic note I wasn’t a fan of, the bigger problem is the plot. No spoilers, but (why do I feel like I say this in every Riverdale review?!) I’m not sure the grand reveal made much sense. If you think about the logistic and stuff that went into creating the tapes, I just don’t believe that the person who turned out to be responsible could have orchestrated all that. But let’s just move on from that, shall we?
Hello, my darling readers! Another season of Riverdale has come to an end. Due to Covid-19, it, unfortunately, ended sooner than intended but we’ll make do with what we get, right?
As usual, a whole lot of shit goes down in this season. Archie is struggling after his father died and is still trying to figure out what to do with his life. In the meantime, Jughead gets accepted into a fancy prep school which ends up not going according to plan. While Veronica and Cheryl explore new business ventures, some creep with unknown intentions descends onto the town…
You have no idea how difficult it is to give a halfway decent summary of the plot when a show is so bat-shit crazy and makes as little sense as Riverdale does.
I’m not even going to attempt to avoid spoilers with discussing this season, so consider yourselves warned before clicking the read more button.
My darling readers! I can’t help but keep on watching this train wreck called Riverdale. I thought season 2 took the cake in terms of weirdness but the writers seemingly wanted to top that with season 3. So, let’s get down to it!
While the rest of Betty’s family (that isn’t in jail for being a serial killer) is emerging themselves in a weird cult called “the farm”, Archie is facing trial for a crime he didn’t commit. In the meantime, Riverdale has to deal with a bigger problem: the mysterious Gargoyle king. Supposedly a figure from the game Griffin’s and Gargoyle’s he has become all too real…
Oh boy, where do I even start? There’s a shitton of stuff going on in this season and absolutely nothing of it makes any sense.
Before I properly start the review, let me give you a little recommendation. Do yourselves a favor and check out the cast interviews on Youtube. Nobody hates Riverdale more than them (especially Lili Reinhart) and it’s hilarious to watch.
