Obligatory: they seem to have made a real show out of this years-old Youtube joke trailer.

The CW got viewers and sold ads and made money off of Smallville. They're sending the bucket back to the well, fishing around for a little more cash.

i haven't watched it but i don't get what's weird about it, "CW teen drama" seems like probably the most fitting modern-day application for archie

Smallville didn't turn a dopey COMIC comic into a soap, tho

also no boys as lovely as Wooden Tom Welling on this, i'd bet

I basically agree with the standard uk line on archie which is "wtf is archie" but lmao at the lazy twin peaks "nods" in this particular year

it's a moderately diverting teen-goth-whodunnit with the added hilarity of it being based on a famously wholesome comic-book

How did Penelope recover from her 3rd degree burns so quickly? That should have taken months or longer to heal. That is my burning question.

what do we think of jughead as the omniscient narrator?

kinda weird but i enjoy it

like how does he know all these things yet is so busy with the serpents, writing a book, spending time with betsy, and still manages to sleuth around and know everything

infinity (∞), Friday, 29 December 2017 17:26 (three months ago) Permalink

i like jug but he is runnerup in dumbness
his bookishness is just a good cloak for baaaaad decision making

like that peppermint patty lawyer stunt with the cutting off the tattoo DONT U COME BACK HERE NO MORE

it’s like college degree level dumbness but it’s still AS dumb as anything archie has pulled

Squeaky Fromage (VegemiteGrrl), Friday, 29 December 2017 17:44 (three months ago) Permalink

i like him as narrator though
kind of a corny sam spade vibe or something

the cutting off the tattoo scene seemed a bit much! like i know jugg is supposed to have bit of edge now he's a serpent but slicing off a layer of flesh off a woman's arm with a knife is kind of fucked

Not sure why Archie is wrestling. He can barely handle playing football and his other interests. Don't start another sport Arch.

as i said on twitter, if Archie doesnt wrestle Reggie I will throw my tv out the window. i’m counting on u Gregg Araki

Sorry guys, I tried.

It's great looking and I appreciate the appeal to the gay male gaze (Archie is literally introduced via a gay character staring at him through a window), but this is otherwise quite dreadful. The dialogue is the worst; in a just world, Kevin Williamson and Diablo Cody will one day be called to answer for their crimes against screenwriting.

I think the reason I love Riverdale IS that it’s so caricatured, the corny dialogue & ridiculous situations make it v enjoyable for me. But I also really like Gotham, which is even dumber & more ott

Squeaky Fromage (VegemiteGrrl), Sunday, 15 April 2018 22:30 (six days ago) Permalink

I stalled out a couple of episodes into the second season - there's a lot of good there but it's just too arch.

louise ck (milo z), Sunday, 15 April 2018 22:35 (six days ago) Permalink

I'll say this: if I kept watching, I'd be interested in seeing if the show ends up doing anything with the Hitchcockian touch of the resemblance between Archie and the murder victim.

Really, it just came down to my figuring out that watching all 13 episodes of the first season would take up a bit over 6.5 hours of my life, which perhaps doesn't sound like much, but I tend to measure these things in terms of what else I could be watching in that time, and I have a whole stack of promising DVDs checked out of the library at the moment (not to mention countless hours of unwatched movies in my PVR) and the numbers just didn't work out in the show's favour.

Dangleballs and the Ballerina (cryptosicko), Sunday, 15 April 2018 22:41 (six days ago) Permalink

I mean, it’s essentially a wacky soap opera. Love it.

i never paid much attention to Skeet Ulrich except thinking he was hot, but I am v much enjoying him as FP. And obv, crushing on him in a major way.

Squeaky Fromage (VegemiteGrrl), Sunday, 15 April 2018 23:55 (six days ago) Permalink

I am stalling out in season 2 also. Trying to make it through (it's a long season!)

so EXCITED

Squeaky Fromage (VegemiteGrrl), Monday, 16 April 2018 00:51 (five days ago) Permalink

I hate myself for having massive crushes on both Cole Sprouse AND Skeet Ulrich.

Stopped at episode two of season two, but started again a couple of days ago and now I'm back to being hooked lol. It's a good show to watch while folding laundry or just for the sake of having something on while you're doing something else.

In a show filled with dumb characters, Archie is literally too dumb to live though - like yes, telling your mobster boss you've been keeping a (very thin) journal of all the shady things you've seen is an extremely good idea.

Roz, Monday, 16 April 2018 03:26 (five days ago) Permalink

Yeah both Archie & Jug are in the hottest dumb-off I’ve ever seen. it’s appointment tv!

Squeaky Fromage (VegemiteGrrl), Monday, 16 April 2018 03:28 (five days ago) Permalink

so apparently this week's episode is a musical episode. i am probably going to chew my arm off while watching this
