    This channel is the only reason I know anything about Riverdale.

    The fact that the actors can say their lines without laughing proves that they're actually way more talented than the writers want us to think.

    I haven't been keeping up with Riverdale, so the 'Cheryl made out with everyone in town and absorbed everyone's powers and nearly destroyed the earth' caught me a bit off guard

    I didn't realize how far behind I was on Alex's Riverdale videos and I cannot express just how severe the shock I got was with the opening explanation of "Cheryl took all their magical powers and now they're back in the 50s"

      as someone who only watched the first season a couple years ago (when it was known for being "good" at the time) i had to rewind the intro a couple times to make sure i heard alex correctly in recalling the events of the last season... how much crack have the writers of this show been smoking???

    Honestly this season just made me realize how cheated we were out of a 50's period-piece. Both KJ Apa and Lilli Reinhart are actually pretty good at playing these goofy teen character archtypes, and I think if they had just stuck with the mystery, maybe giving them different mysteries to solve each season, it would have been pretty good.

    • Jay Barry
      Jay Barry Před 5 měsíci +41

      Playing to the Nancy Drew and Hardy Brothers tropes. Midnight Club showed how well these actors can be as other characters (specifically teenage versions of their parents and really evoking the actors who play the parents), and KJ Apa has demonstrated he can do emotional scenes really well when he gets the material. It’s the writing and creative decisions that have failed the actors and cheated the audience.

    • Lorena Villarroel Barriga

      It's sad to think that they could have really adapted Archie's Weird Mysteries into a period pixe

  • giada
    giada Před 5 měsíci +265

    The scene where Jughead has to explain his friends they are not in the right timeline, who they really are and that Archie and Betty needed to make out in order change the timeline was hilarious. Cole Sprouse deserves an award for making Jughead serious and crazy at the same time and delivering all those lines without laughing.

    • Cristina Ganymede

  • Nightmare Fuel
    Nightmare Fuel Před 5 měsíci +703

    That Emmett Till thing is really horrible, thats a real life murder and putting it in a show that clearly doesn’t give thought to the writing makes it seem like they are using this tragedy in a very misguided attempt to make the show seem more serious. Very upsetting

      @bummie yeah I mean it's already bad enough when we get shows that glorify real murderers but this is very poor taste when you have a show about teenagers solving badly written mysteries. Just feels exploitative

      I mean way back in season episode 3 Veronica made reference to actual horrific sexual assault cases, Steubenville - A rape case that occurred in Steubenville, Ohio, on the night of August 11, 2012, when a high-school girl, incapacitated by alcohol, was publicly and repeatedly sexually assaulted by classmates.
      Glen Ridge - A rape case that occurred in Glen Ridge, New Jersey, where a mentally handicapped girl was raped with a broomstick and a baseball bat by members of the Glen Ridge High School football team in 1989.

      @Denisa Blašková to be fair I’ve never actually watched more then one episode because it was just not my thing when it came out, and the more I hear about it the more I think this is probably one of the worst shows (that isn’t reality tv on tlc) in recent years, way up there with 13 reasons why

    • David Ken
      David Ken Před 5 měsíci +4

      @Lucas Sun Or they just look that way on their own and the show has nothing to do with it.

    • Jay Barry
      Jay Barry Před 5 měsíci +36

      @David Ken 25, 26, 28 and 28 to be exact. Cole is 30, Vanessa is 31 and Casey (Kevin) is 30. KJ would have been 19 when the pilot aired, and 18 when the it was filmed, so everyone in the cast was legal and thus fewer restrictions on the risqué material. Ashleigh, who plays Josie, is ten years older than KJ, and their characters were briefly in a relationship early on. To make the Fake Grundy storyline even creepier, KJ was eighteen when he filmed intimate scenes with an actress who was mid-30’s in age. Even knowing the show would have had an intimacy coach doesn’t make it better.
      I suppose one positive about the 50’s setting is that the show has to be more conservative with the fanservice to be more accurate to the period.

    2:50… my jaw hit the floor when I saw they were incorporating this in the show.. I mean Riverdale tackling the Emmet Till Case is like if Barney the dinosaur were to talk about the Challenger Disaster.. I mean Ik the writers are high as a kite but they can’t be this dumb.. they honestly can’t think they’d be able to talk about it with the respect it deserves..

  • dani dkg
    dani dkg Před 5 měsíci +87

    i'm not black so please correct me if i'm wrong, but i find it so.... weird that the writers gave all the black characters such a traumatic storyline. i mean, you have betty being a goody two-shoes girl next door, archie being a jock, jughead with his old hat, etc etc, and then toni and the other two black characters in the show are fighting for emmett till's rights. that's so serious and so different from the rest of the group that it's giving viewers emotional whiplash. i appreciate that they want to discuss this very real and horrific moment in history, but i don't think ANYONE expected riverdale to discuss this. and tbh, with the way they're treating it right now and the way they're representing it, i don't think riverdale can be trusted to discuss this.

    • Ilmiana Firmantika
      Ilmiana Firmantika Před 4 měsíci +9

      Through season 6, I feel like they started to acknowledge the absurdity and leant more towards it. Idk why they decided to have more serious/complex issues in the show now

    • Melissa
      Melissa Před 4 měsíci +4

      I don’t think it was right to bring in Emmett tills tragic story but based on these videos, it seems like most of the characters had very traumatic storylines if you think about it. Like bettys dad is a serial killer, Archie’s life in general is nuts, same with Veronica and Cheryl and jughead so, that’s all pretty damn traumatic. I think it’s just different because this is adding in a real life tragedy

    • Leah
      Leah Před měsícem

      (tldr: I agree, roberto cannot be trusted to do true life, sensitive and horrific storylines as such. And he didn’t bother to see it all the way through anyways). adding to the comment above, throughout the season the other characters also have pretty traumatic or not nice events happen to them. Betty and Veronica both get disowned by their parents, Betty is even hit by Alice whilst Veronica is again manipulated by her father into covering up his conspiring with the Russians and is told her parents are divorcing. Reggie experiences a fair bit of racism throughout most of season, Archie has lost his dad in the war and is pushed around by his uncle. Cheryl is also treated awfully by her parents when they realise she is a lesbian. Jughead’s mentor is murdered. Whilst it certainly isn’t on the same playing field as what you mentioned they gave to the black characters of the show, the rest of them aren’t all sunshine and rainbows. Not as dark as the original timeline characters, but it’s there. Plus, Roberto (who’s surprised) didn’t even commit to consistently portraying the civil rights movement throughout the seasons to even do it justice. He did the same thing with the threat of Communism and Stalin… made it a bit threat one episode then lit it simmer unimportantly in the background 😐 So once he’s ticked his box and covered it, Toni didn’t really get much more of a storyline after that. It was just about finding her feet with Cheryl. And Tabitha barely even appeared in the whole season. Clay, equally, his storyline was surrounding being Kevin’s boyfriend and working for Veronica in the movie theatre 😭 he spent too much time on the wrong things to actually give the black characters proper fleshed out storylines and backgrounds. Granted they aren’t the core 4, but with it being the last season he could’ve given them the send off they deserved.

    The fact that Emmett Till’s accuser died literally today meanwhile Riverdale is using the horrors of his murder as a basically backdrop set piece is such an emotional dissonance. I know that Riverdale doesn’t seem to have any editors or anything, but still, who approved this?!

  • Random user with a random name
    Random user with a random name Před 5 měsíci +13

    The fact that the principal calls Cheryl out for dancing with another girl, which like Alex said, was very common, but not for dancing with a ~black girl~ tells me anything I need to know about the show's understanding of gay and black history.

    The scene from Glass Onion where Kate Hudson exclaimed:"it's so stupid it's genius!" & Daniel Craig yelled:"no! It's just stupid!" came to my mind during this video. 😵
    Also a show having an end of season cliffhanger/tease that got lazily resolved at next season's premiere is nothing new.

    My jaw dropped when they brought in Emmett Till but then I remembered that this show also had Tabitha trying to stop the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. so I guess no tragedy is off the table for their black characters huh

      It goes from boring to wildly entertaining in a pretty slow progression but the limited fun moments in season 1 and 2 feel so much more special in retrospect. I'm shocked that this crazy show still manages to feel crazy and new and fun even this far off the rails though.

      Suvrojit Roy Před 5 měsíci +6

      I binged it, all the way through half of season 5, I guess they had a midseason break in s5 when I started watching. I watched it at a time when I was not well and just wanted to distract myself. I won't deny, it is pretty bad, but I could still watch because Lili is the prettiest girl to look at and I like how the prettiest girl doesn't fall for the jock but the nerd one.. Even that went downhill from season 5 and that's when I started skipping parts or watching half heartedly just to see how things end out of curiosity.
      But this show opened doors for US teen shows for me, I have watched Teen Wolf and Vampire Diaries universe since then and liked them even with their imperfections, especially TVD.

    First season was actually so good😂 remember watching it when it came out. Now it’s crazy how the actors haven’t left

    The whole dark room toni dance sequence was SO uncomfortable along with Betty's dream like i don't need to see every single character kissing every other character for no reason 💀

    The only thing I'll miss about Riverdale is Alex gleefully making fun of it. I love his videos more than the actual show.

      Yep. Watching people tear the show apart is more entertaining than watching it.

    This show had such potential in the first 2 seasons, it’s sad that this is what it has come too. Such a great show let down by its writers. Like the whole serial killer season was soooo good. Just sad.

    I have been reading Archie comics for like 35 years and I have loved the new edgier versions of it like Afterlife with Archie, the Mark Wade Archie-verse and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. I was really excited for Riverdale. Just like when I found out, as a child, that there was an Archie cartoon! Pure joy! But my god. I watched the first season of Riverdale and could not get passed the 1st episode of Season 2. Watching these re-caps is my only exposure now and I am shocked every time at the choices made. They managed to take a comic empire that is literally all over the place and take it to 11 in the weirdest ways.

    Its so weird how when I was in school, everyone just kept talking about Riverdale and how much they loved it, and then suddenly it just went quiet. Not a single word was said about Riverdale again after season 2 or season 1.

    For me, knowing that the show is ending, it feels nostalgic to see them all being "innocent" in a sense, even if it may seem unnecessary I like that they can have a break, can't wait for it all to go off-rails though 😅

    Once the stars are released from their contracts, hopefully they'll go onto bigger and better things. They're all really talented, not that you'd ever realise it based on this show alone.

      The actress playing Jughead’s sister deserves better

    I stopped watching Riverdale a while back and I cannot bring myself to start again after how weird it got. But I gotta know what happens! So I'm gonna get super baked and watch all your recaps from where I stopped. Cause you make it so much easier to watch! Love your videos ❤

  • JGB Creations

    I love Riverdale. I love how over-the-top fun and insane it is but how it still manages to put on a coherent and good show that is the polar opposite of *boring.*

    There are 7 season's of this?! I am stunned. In my head there are not a lot of fantasy shows that got 7 seasons (the originals for example) and that is an award in itself. I mean wtf. They surely didn't deserve it 😂

    As a black person, the "head in hands" feeling that I got when the show mentioned Emmett Till is almost indescribable

    • lizzie t
      lizzie t Před 5 měsíci +287

      ​@Gracekim25 you should definitely learn about Emmett Till. You'll understand why this was unbelievably out of their reach for representing him respectfully. It's like last season when the "stop MLK from being assassinated" plot. Completely unnecessary and disrespectful

  • Audrey Nothepburn
    Audrey Nothepburn Před 5 měsíci +4

    The time travel thing kind of made sense with Jughead being the only one to remember because he was part of the time police with Archie’s descendant, January McAndrews, and his hat is a time travel device. Don’t know why they just didn’t add an new character and make it more fun and less depressing.

  • Melissa
    Melissa Před 4 měsíci +1

    I never stuck with Riverdale and it’s crazy to see what they’re doing without context. I gotta respect their willingness to embrace the wackiness and absurdity. There’s enough regular teen drama shows. Though mixing in real life tragedies is in bad taste.
    I never got into riverdale (only watched the first season) but I really do love Chilling Adventures of Sabrina which is the same creator

  • Bad Deal Dude
    Bad Deal Dude Před 5 měsíci +464

    the most interesting thing about this season to me is how unironically great KJ Apa is at playing a 50s character. like everyone else is pretty hit or miss but somehow he is perfectly matching the inflections and absolute dumbassery of those characters

    • Juan Valencia

      The actors in the show do miracles considering the material they are given.

    • therebinthe
      therebinthe Před 5 měsíci +73

      @Juan Valencia This is gonna sound weird but I've often been very impressed with the acting on Riverdale, actually. The material is silly, but the actors really do give it all they've got. I continue to be especially impressed with how Betty's actress can just apparently cry on command and make it look like her heart is literally breaking apart over whatever dumb thing they're making the character cry over. That's gotta be so hard on such a silly show.

      Apa generally does better as Archie when he can lean into the hamminess and awkwardness of the character and plot, instead of being the super serious Adonis god, the show really wanted him to be.

    1) I’ll start with you have come a long way as an animator. This isn’t the first video you have made where I have thought that. Congrats to all your hard work it really does show. 2) Your commentary is so funny. The fact that you still continue to watch Riverdale makes me laugh even more and harder. (I quit during season 2. ¿Did I really??? I can keep up with the show thanks to this channel.) That’s all, enjoy the rest of your day.

    Listen - this is what I thought it was going to be like when they first announced Riverdale. If you’ve ever read the comics they look and act just the way they did in the comics however - it took them too long and now we all just cannot

    I have been watching Riverdale since it came out in 2017, and that was when I discovered your channel. It has become a tradition for me to watch Riverdale and your videos on them. It is coming to an end, but luckily you will still be making videos.
