That camera tilt at the end haha! This show had little moments of cringe in seasons 1 & 2 sure, but season 3 has taken that to a whole new level and it's getting ridiculous
How the hell am I supposed to take it serious at this point.
This season is terribleEveryone gets obsessed with a board game, I laughed just by writing that
The acting is already bad when they are playing their regular roles... playing their parents was definitely a new level of bad acting. I only liked FP because Cole is the only good actor there (almost the only reason I keep watching this show...).
This episode was most definitely a drawn out filler episode that didn't need to be as long as it was. Alice's story telling quickly grew boring, and the acting from some (Madelaine, Camila) was not dissimilar enough from their regular roles to truly feel like they were playing their parent. The most convincing was KJ, who adopted Fred's character as well as anyone could. But what can I say? It's Riverdale, which no one truly watches for the acting, anyway.
And consider the plot hole that Sierra and Tom were involved romantically in highschool, yet everyone in Riverdale was immensely shocked by their affair seasons prior? Interesting.
Oh, and don't get me started on Betty's use of the word "triggered" within the first five minutes of the show. Eternal eyeroll.
The board game playing is believable in the 90’s flashbacks. In the present time scenes though ? No. Not when there’s cell phones and video games. When you think of it though the teens on this show are rarely even seen with cell phones. I also wish they didn’t do the cliche Breakfast Club detention bonding. Even had Anthony Michael Hall as the principal.
I didn't really feel this episode. I honestly found it weird to have the usual actors play as their parents. I wouldn't even call it good acting tbh and just felt like most of them played dress-up. It was literally the first episode of Riverdale that made me so bored that I read comment sections about the episode before it was even halfway through.
Penelope's back story was the only thing that interested me - She grew up as Clifford's sister and then ended up marrying him? Seems like a typical Blossom mess. I really want to know more about it. And makes you wonder if Jason and Cheryl really were twins...
What era are they supposed to be in... It appeared to be a mix of the 80s and 90s with a little bit too much of the "normal" age. I applaud the effort though just too bad they missed the ball just a little.
The actor playing Archie really looked like a young Luke Perry in some of the angles though.
lol breakfast club meets saved by the bell ;-) I like it though :-P
This was so fun!!! Officially my favorite episode. I love all of the actors so much omg
Does anyone else feel like that was the worst Breakfast Club/Mazes and Monsters movie mash up imaginable?
First the Spartacus story-line with Archie and now this...hopefully they pull this train back on the track before it derails...
