Riverdale Recap and Review – Season 1 – Chapter 13 – The Sweet Hereafter, by Private: Andrew Buckley
Oh how I’m going to miss writing reviews for this show, it leaves a chill running up and down my spine, like my entire body was thrust intoice water … I suppose I could just light a fire to warm up? <nudge, nudge, wink, wink> Riverdale ended its thirteen episode first season tonight and it […]
Riverdale Recap and Review – Season 1 – Chapter 12 – Anatomy of a Murder, by Private: Andrew Buckley
SPOILER ALERT – Murderers and accomplices were revealed on the latest episode of Riverdale and they’re included in this recap and review. If you haven’t watched it yet, I suggest you do so before continuing. Game of Thrones meets Riverdale on this week’s episode ‘Anatomy of Murder’. Sure it wasn’t golden-haired creepy rich twins incest, […]
Riverdale Recap and Review – Season 1 – Chapter 11 – To Riverdale and Back Again, by Private: Andrew Buckley
I have a theory on who killed Jason and why. But you’re going to have to read to the end to hear it. This week’s episode handed us a murderer wrapped up in a pretty little Skeet Ulrich bow, smoking gun in his closet, and nefarious partnerships with a well-known biker gang and an evil […]
Riverdale Recap and Review – Season 1 – Chapter 10 – The Lost Weekend, by Private: Andrew Buckley
I’ve often complimented the CW shows on their ability to tie up dangling plot points and sub story arcs in a timely manner. Many shows prefer to drag things out for multiple episodes and sometimes entire seasons (*cough* The Blacklist *cough*). This can get arduous and can result in story fatigue. Don’t laugh, it’s a […]
Riverdale Recap and Review – Season 1 – Chapter 9 – La Grande Illusion, by Private: Andrew Buckley
There are a number of universal truths in this world. Unbreakable and unbendable facts that shape our humanity in a physical, mental, and emotional sense. Water is wet. The sun rises and sets. Snow is cold. Cats have no souls. Pop Tarts are the best breakfast snack food ever created. And so on. However, there’s […]
Riverdale Recap and Review – Season 1 – Chapter 8 – The Outsiders, by Private: Andrew Buckley
There quite literally is not one happy marriage happening in Riverdale. Maybe it’s the water, maybe it’s the maple syrup, maybe it’s the disturbing amount of redheads . . . but relationships are not meant to survive in that town. Tensions ran high in this episode with double crosses and back alley deals happening all […]
The ‘Who Killed Jason Blossom?’ Suspect List – March 2017, by Private: Andrew Buckley
This again? Yes, this again! There’s still a killer on the loose and with new evidence comes new suspects. And as we’re sadly without a new episode of Riverdale for a couple more weeks, now seems like the perfect time to take a look at the current list of likely (and unlikely) suspects. **Spoilers Ahead! […]
Riverdale Recap and Review – Season 1 – Episode 7, by Private: Andrew Buckley
That 50’s style comic book opening scene with Jughead wearing his crown and Archie in the sweater with the bowtie was beautifully shot, iconically accurate, and all sorts of creepy. This is something that Riverdale does well, I’ve seen it since episode one and they’ve managed to maintain it almost every single week so far: […]
Riverdale Recap and Review – Season 1 – Episode 6, by Private: Andrew Buckley
Parental dysfunction was alive and well in this week’s episode. Add to that a healthy dose of fear, performance anxiety, adults pushing their insecurities onto their kids, and teen pregnancy,        well . . . it’s just another week in Riverdale. Right off the bat I’m going to have to admit defeat. I was wrong about […]
Riverdale Recap and Review – Season 1 – Episode 5, by Private: Andrew Buckley
RIVERDALE – Chapter Five: Heart of Darkness I had a real blonde (Betty) moment today when I suddenly realized that all the titles of the Riverdale episodes are named after movies. I went to film school! How did I not catch that?! But enough about me and my shortcomings. We have another episode of Riverdale […]
