By giving up on reality, Riverdale is finally reaching its full potential

I’ve previously discussed ad nauseam on this site about how Archie’s stories consistently subvert expectations, and it’s a pattern in which the CW drama has overcome disappointment. Too often, the series knocks on the door of madness then runs away leaving me as stunned and as weird as the times the show has gone, it never went far enough. Or if it does, the madness has been given a humorous explanation that helps get all the air out of its narrative tire.

But then came Rivervale. The alternate universe miniseries that make up the first five episodes of this season have plunged our characters into the show’s actual upsides, which says a lot based on typical scenarios. introduced here. In retrospect, the story of Rivervale was a door the screenwriters were pushing through the characters (and viewers). Whatever’s on the table right now, no matter what’s ridiculous/great.

So where does that leave us? With a series that are sci-fi/superhero/horror/musical/comedy/procedure. It was Kitchen Sink TV time, and the kid was wild. The writers of this show realized that it left viewers with a surprise due to all the dance genres it did, so at that point, they seemed to have made a conscious decision to make a conscious decision. are all kinds of TV series at the same time.

Has any other show in television history had the guts to attempt such a feat? Or to solve the problem with such a stupid way. In about 45 minutes tonight’s install – hilariously called “Unbelievable” in a bit of meta awareness and as a trick to its theme inspiration, Unbroken – really blows up the status quo and puts all of our characters in completely new places. Not many pieces move around as it throws lighter liquid on the board, burns it, then the house it resides in, then shoots the whole city, just to make sure there’s no what survived.

This is a brave move, one that will make the fear of the jumping sharks rise. Let me quell any of that for now by saying that by taking a bold move towards the end of this series is not a decision born of despair, but of inspiration. I would definitely agree that Riverdale It’s been dragging for a while, but even at its worst, there are enough quirky crazy moments to make it a standout fun.

Now the whole series is a huge WTF moment, and I’m doing my best to not only have this review read OH MY GOD? I don’t know what to expect from this show after the hiatus, but I can guarantee that a spin-off featuring a dog with superpowers won’t even be in my top 500 predictions. about what could happen. By giving up on reality, Riverdale is finally reaching its full potential
