  1. S11.E10: The Battle Of Ranskoor Av Kolos

    I thought it was a good ending to an unremarkable season. I like the dynamic between Graham and Ryan, they'll make a good pair in the next couple of seasons. Now let's see them build on this momentum in the New Year's show.
  2. lol didn't know that. There are four levels of believability in shows and movies. Totally believable/plausible, somewhat believable/plausible, fantasy/plausible, and fantasy/implausible. Riverdale is of course the last one, and is not ashamed to admit it.
  3. This show really has gone full-on Twilight Zone. Betty Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest. Side note. I was at Trader Joe's today (for those not familiar, a specialty supermarket chain), and on the front page of the newsletter on the counter was an ad for a holiday treat on sale called Jingle Jangle. So I thought, wow, they are actually selling the illegal Riverdale drug for the holiday season!
  4. S11.E09: It Takes You Away

    I was a bit perplexed by the bad cgi of the frog, it looked like it was moving in stop motion animation. Was this a shout out to the special effects of 1970s Dr. Who shows? LOL. But even with a good frog the whole dialogue itself felt very thrown together and wasn't very insightful at all. "Well I know I said I would stay but your universe is about to explode, but I really like you!" "Oh okaaaaaaay...bye".
  5. S11.E09: It Takes You Away

    I really enjoyed this episode until....that frog.
  6. S14.E07: Unhuman Nature

    Yeah the season is pretty atrocious with some very inept writing and plotting. I continue to enjoy Jack as a character though. The genuineness of the actor really does shine through and bringing him on as a regular I think was one of the better decisions the show has made in recent seasons. Though I still miss Crowley.
  7. S14.E07: Unhuman Nature

    So one minute Jack is having total systemic organ failure and the next he's cruising with Dean and going fishing. Okay.
  8. S03.E06: Chapter Forty-One: Manhunter

    This show has somehow managed to jump the shark over the shark. Jump the shark squared? Pam had a dream, Rosanne wrote a story, alien UFOs on CHiPs. and an entire hospital drama concocted in the mind of an autistic kid cannot even touch Riverdale. And yet I keep watching. The train wreck that keeps on giving.
  9. S11.E08: The Witchfinders

    It was fun learning about him and his preoccupation with witches. He was a pretty nutty king.
  10. S11.E08: The Witchfinders

    Witch hunts were fairly common in Europe going back to the middle ages. I doubt that the real King James would have partaken in them, though. He had more important things to do, and I doubt being personally on hand to massacre whole villages would have been a very good PR move. But the show wanted an excuse to put the flamboyant king into the middle of the action, so that's reason enough.
  11. S11.E08: The Witchfinders

    Alan Cummings was having an obviously great time playing King James, and I also hope he makes a return kind of like how the show used to bring back Churchill now and again. Siobhan Finneran was also at her nasty best, she was great in Downton Abbey as the similarly treacherous Sarah O'Brien. During the dunking scene I couldn't help but think of Monty Python and the Holy Grail, and was waiting for someone in the crowd to shout out, "She turned me into a newt! ...I got better."
  12. S11.E07: Kerblam!

    I figured she was going to give them the coordinates of an active volcano on some distant planet, lol.
  13. S09.E06: Who Are You Now?

    Finally watched this just out of curiosity to see where the show is going. I did laugh at Rosita's remark to Eugene to not be getting weird when they needed to escape. Other than that, just a bland setup episode. This really is a spin-off show now using the same old title. Walking Dead: TNG. Kang is again doing a good job of making the characters a little more human and believable than Gimple did, but this still isn't high drama. Just mildly entertaining but no longer must see viewing.
  14. S14.E06: Optimism

    Well that one was kinda dumb. How much did they spend on makeup for zombie boyfriend, ten bucks? It literally looked like he was dressed up as a zombie for a Halloween party. The Charlie/Sam subplot was straight out of Grimm. The one saving grace of the episode was Jack's charm, they really scored when they cast this kid in the role.
  15. S08.E10: Apocalypse Then

    Basically they just used a fictionalized Anton Lavey very loosely based on the real one.
