The CW network attempts to simulate mystery with depth, unfortunately it didn't work. Bad teen dramas are bad teen dramas, but, at least the kids get to practice acting — maybe with luck they’ll even get skilled at it... or be in something with talented writers. If not, they'll wind up as yesteryear's teen actors playing parents, teachers, coaches and law enforcement officers in future mediocre CW teen dramas like the token adults in "Riverdale".


It's a new show so I'm not understanding everyone's comments on a show that hasn't even started yet


The great "Archie" getting a live-action adaptation?!?! THERE IS A GOD!!! If it is anything like the new Archie comic reboot (which is fantastic and a must-read), then I will be hooked. All I know is that one can never have enough Betty and Veronica, that's for sure... ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) EDIT: Well, after watching the first episode of Riverdale, I don't quite know what to think of it all yet. Riverdale seems to be more heavily influenced by the CW's style turning this into more of a darker mystery driven show than I had been anticipating. We'll see how everything shakes out as the first episode already had its hands full just introducing the myriad of characters here. I really liked what was done in the recent Archie comic reboot but perhaps this mystery-story based approach is better suited for TV vs the lighter affair of the comics. Also, we need more Jughead!!


If you've come to the comment section to figure out if you want to start watching this show, one tip. JUST DON'T! What I can tell you, after I've watched season 1, 2 and up to episode 20 in season 3. It gets worse. The sad part is, it had potential. I remember I enjoyed the first season. It was decent, it wasn't amazing, but it was good. Second season, it went downhill. Third season, when you think it can't get any worse, oh it does. If there was a way to give this show less than 1/10, I would. The plot has become awful, the writing gets worse, you do not recognize the actors anymore.. And from someone who was a huge fan of Archie in season 1, I honestly want to punch his face in season 3. If you wanna save yourself time, despair, please don't watch this. Your life will be so much better spent doing something else. How this got renewed for a season 4, I have no freaking clue. I wish this was canceled. Oh how I wish they would just cancel this show right now. I am actually torturing myself watching this season. And once it's over, I can finally rest and put this behind me. I can't see how they possibly can make a season worse than season 3, but I am sure somehow, they can do it. Update after season 3: Wow it sucks. With a flash forward at the end of the last episode, I honestly can't see this show redeeming itself. So sayonara Riverdale. Will not return to watch season 4.


This show became repetitive and boring. The gargoyle plot is so bad. And don't get me started on the Farm... Won't be looking for season 4.


Cheesy script, predictable plot lines, and bad acting. I had some hope for this but first season is proving it to be another generic CW show filled with eye candy that will be canceled soon enough.


Overall the show is badly written, and a disappointment. The pop culture references on this show come off as pretentious and not organic or ironic. Either go dark and creepy or keep it lighthearted with a level of camp; this in-between comes off sloppy AND, let's face it, this ain't Twin Peaks, not even remotely despite desperately trying to be...


This show has gotten so boring and just keeps getting worse the more u watch. Dont even know why I watched as much as I did :thumbsdown:


Damn that gargoyle stupid plot!!! It ruined the show drastically!!!


First Season was good After that its straight garbage!!!!!

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
