I'm watching it, just caught to the third episode!

I don't enjoy teen dramas all that much, and yet I've watched both this and 13 REASONS WHY, but only through binging on them. They don't appeal to me on a weekly basis, but once I have all the episodes available, I can sit and enjoy them over a few days or in one week.

I don’t like 13 REASONS WHY it’s far too depressing

So far season 3 is shaping up to becoming much better than season 2, last nights 90s episode was brilliant.

Though I’m not certain, but even though this seemed to be the early 90s there seemed to be a lot of 80s songs being played, however if this episode was set circa 1990-94 then those years were an 80s extension.

Once again Betty shines through as ever, bit unnerving seeing last nights cliffhanger though.....

I stopped watching in March after that "weekend getaway" with Archie, Veronica, Jughead and Betty. Can't bring myself to watch it again.

How come?? Season 3 so far is much better than season 2.

I thought KJ did a good job channeling 90's era Luke Perry in this week's episode.

I know!

I was expecting him to say “I love you Bren”

Is anyone still watching RIVERDALE?
The couples are being mixed up now finally,
Veronica is now seemingly with Reggie, so I hope Betty/Archie happens in season4!

I'm still watching but I'm about three or four weeks behind. I'll have a binge soon. I've sort of felt like they were building towards pairing Reggie and Veronica (who are dating in realy life) the entire season, so I'm not surprised if they are together now.

Veronica/Reggie have way more chemistry too, of course this is down to them dating in real life, but I think Varchie has faltered now, I heard a rumour that Bughead may split too this season, I wonder if this has anything to do with Evelyn from the cult? I hope they do split since couples on long running shows need to be mixed up.

Archie/Josie is set to happen but apparently not for long.

Josie could leave Riverdale and join the new spin off Katy Keane, which is apparently set several years after Riverdale? (The timeline is confusing me more than One Tree Hill’s jumping time line, they skipped four years then another two years two seasons later!)

Honestly I think the writers are deliberately putting off Betty/Archie simply because they don’t want to upset Bughead fans.

I just watched the first episode. It seemed to have a nice TWIN PEAKS/Lana Del Ray/Twilight vibe going on at the beginning, but once people started talking, it mostly reminded me of DAWSON'S CREEK, only without that special ache.

Yes! Season 1 was ok soapiness. I got disappointed and distracted in season 2... I keep wondering if I should go back?

I finally gave in and tried out Season 1. To my surprise, I got hooked and binged it quite fast. I think it's a soapy and decent show, and the Jason mystery kept me interested. The acting started off really good but I think has become staid since, with the exception of KJ Apa, who's not... well... particularly good. But thank God for his looks. Thank God for all the men's looks. It also occasionally captures a really cool mood/atmosphere but I wish it kept it going.

Two episodes into Season 2 so far, and I am a little nervous that the focusing power of the Jason mystery is missing. That being said, the new central story seems intriguing enough so far. Hopefully a good season 1 won't lead to a disaster season 2.
