No Score Yet Doug: Season 7 (TV, 1991-1999) I hated it... Maybe it's because of the nostalgia for all of Nickelodeon's old shows and cartoons -- elevating them to some untouchable status in my memory. Or maybe it's just because Disney managed to destroy everything that made me like this show. - Refinery29 EDIT

100% Lizzie McGuire: Season 2 (TV, 2001-2004) It seems silly to think that a Disney Channel show about an average, adolescent girl could have been powerful enough to leave you with a memory that you carry 12 years after the show... However, I do. - Refinery29 EDIT

100% Riverdale: Season 2 - Chapter Thirty-One: A Night to Remember (TV Episode) Not even a gruesome, surprise murder at the end of the episode can make sense of the hour of television The CW created tonight. But if you're a Riverdale fan, as I am, then you're not really here for sense anyway, are you? - Refinery29 EDIT

75% Riverdale: Season 2 - Chapter Twenty-Nine: Primary Colors (TV Episode) Where the writers are planning to go from there is unclear, but poor Cheryl. - Refinery29 EDIT

78% Riverdale: Season 2 - Chapter Twenty-Seven: The Hills Have Eyes (TV Episode) The show is finally putting some time into storylines from the supporting cast. That means some real development from the likes of Cheryl, Toni, Josie, and Kevin. - Refinery29 EDIT

89% Riverdale: Season 2 - Chapter Twenty-Five: The Wicked and the Divine (TV Episode) Shout-out to Jughead for calling out the Riverdale P.D. for putting tons of time and money into vandalism and little to no effort into capturing a serial killer. - Refinery29 EDIT

88% Riverdale: Season 2 - Chapter Twenty-Three: The Blackboard Jungle (TV Episode) This episode comes with good news and bad news for the season's second half. The good news: We've completely moved on from the Black Hood. Bad news: We've completely moved on from the Black Hood. - Refinery29 EDIT

89% Riverdale: Season 2 - Chapter Twenty-Two: Silent Night, Deadly Night (TV Episode) Christmas has come to Riverdale!! And while comfort and joy would usually be the mood of the season, this episode picks up right where we left off: with heartbreak, drug dealers, and a murderer still on the loose! - Refinery29 EDIT

67% Riverdale: Season 2 - Chapter Twenty-One: House of the Devil (TV Episode) Tonight's episode put the characters is place for significant storyline shifts while somehow always being awkward. - Refinery29 EDIT

100% Riverdale: Season 2 - Chapter Twenty: Tales From the Darkside (TV Episode) It was part Law & Order, part every horror movie ever. But for an episode titled "Tales From The Darkside," it was the perfect way to establish that tonight's tale would be dark, creepy, and the beginning of a new chapter of terror in Riverdale. - Refinery29 EDIT

100% Riverdale: Season 2 - Chapter Sixteen: The Watcher in the Woods (TV Episode) Maybe the most welcoming change to this week's episode was that it spent a great deal of time focusing on Kevin (Casey Cott), someone who sits on the peripheral of the show's central quartet. - Refinery29 EDIT

87% Riverdale: Season 2 - Chapter Fifteen: Nighthawks (TV Episode) It was a far cry from the first time we watched the Pussycats perform. It seemed like a vanilla, watered down imitation of the original - a type of milkshake that will bring no one to the yard. - Refinery29 EDIT
