TV Series Feature: Riverdale
It’s been awhile since I made a tv series feature. It can’t be helped, watching tv series is not really my priority right now. Anyway, I just want to share my thoughts about this series I watch but then I got disappointed after seeing the new season. Yep, I dropped this ‘famous’ tv series. Don’t blame me just yet, understand my POV then judge. LOL.
Anyway, here’s my thoughts:
Seasons: 2 (Ongoing)
Genre: Crime, Drama, Mystery
Starring: K.J. Apa, Lili Reinhart, Camila Mendes, Cole Sprouse, etc.
Synopsis: A subversive take on Archie and his friends, exploring small town life, the darkness and weirdness bubbling beneath Riverdale’s wholesome facade.
I am a huge Pretty Little Liars fan, for years. Ever since it ended, I craved for something similar to it. Then Riverdale came into the picture, and everyone were hyped about it. On my part, I definitely got curious about how this Archie adaptation would work out. Infairness, I got hooked by the story.
Riverdale is, in a way, a live-action to Archie. Most of the characters and the settings were based from the Archie comics. It was weird at first, but you get used to it because your attention would shift from the “Archie live-action” thing to the main plot of the story, “Who killed Jason?”. The first season’s plot didn’t disappoint. I like the story, the mood, the characters, and it got me intrigued as to where this series was going. Riverdale was pretty solid, and it definitely relieved my itch for some young adult suspense tv series that I was looking for after PLL. I couldn’t stop watching it.
To be honest, I didn’t even expect that this series would even get a 2nd season. The main plot is solved, what’s there to tackle? Then the last episode of the first season came, and oh boiii I dropped my mouth to the floor. I didn’t expect that kind of cliffhanger ending for a first season. I mean, I thought it would be like in PLL, where you get trolled for thinking that you solved it, but nah, it went the other way. It actually made me want to watch the 2nd season. But bruh, 2nd season was a disappointment. It was worse than I thought it would be.
The 2nd season continues where we left off from the ending. Everything went well, but then, the shower scene came. THAT WAS UNNECESSARY. Sigh. Do they really need to add sex/making out scenes at every moment in the series? I was supposed to be sympathizing and feeling the anguish of what just happen, then I see 2 main characters making out in the showers? Huge turn off. I let it slide. I had seen worse so maybe Riverdale would improve.
BUT IT DIDN’T. It continued to suck and disappoint me every episode. The characters frustrates me to hell, the story was not as consistent as the first season, and more steamy scenes that were unnecessary. Sigh. And that’s why I dropped this series. Yes, I didn’t finish it and I don’t want to. Its hard to watch it you know.
Compared to PLL (yeah bruh, gonna continue to compare this two), Riverdale sucked immediately after season 1, while the former series sucked around the 5th season. It seams that the writers of Riverdale poured their heart & souls onto making the season 1, that’s why its really good, but wasn’t able to deliver in the season 2. They might have not anticipated the hype and popularity of the series, and wasn’t able to prepare a good story for season 2. This is just my opinion, bruh.
So yeah, now you know. I dropped this series and I have no plans to watch this again. Even my sister dropped this one after watching the first episode of the 2nd season, that sure speaks for something.
Anyway, don’t make my opinion spoil your interest for the series. Everything I say here are all my thoughts, don’t be influence by it. Watch it then judge it for yourself. Okay?
Now, that is all. Thanks for reading.
