Oh, Riverdale, you sure know how to crank up the drama.

The subtle, deep dive references that this show is making are insane...the people are doing their homework on this show.

Archie's quest to take on Riverdale's own Black Hood shouldn't be as stupid as it is.

If Riverdale is a stand-in for the soul of America - a microcosm of our hopes, dreams, fears, and flaws - then Season 2 has become an exploration of how that soul can and has been corrupted. Or, more accurately, how it's been corrupted all along.

Not enough Cheryl this season. Need more Cheryl.

On the one hand, I'm really enjoying this season, and on the other, it's soooo close to being too much. But that's also part of Riverdale, right? I've never felt more confused.
