2/5 No Score Yet Katy Keene: Season 1 - Chapter Two: You Can't Hurry Love (TV Episode) With the expositionary groundwork of last week's pliot firmly laid, Katy Keene begins to find its groove in this outing... - Den of Geek EDIT

5/5 No Score Yet Riverdale: Season 4 - Chapter Seventy: the Ides of March (TV Episode) If Riverdale is going to take narrative cues from Lost, then they should borrow some genuine shocks and mystery from that show too. - Den of Geek EDIT

4.5/5 89% Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: Part 3 (TV, 2018) Although Sabrina's storyline is understandingly the dominating focus of this season, most of the series' supporting characters get rewarding stories of their own. - Den of Geek EDIT

4.5/5 86% Riverdale: Season 4 - Chapter Sixty-Four: The Ice Storm (TV Episode) What has been an unexpected surprise though is how the series' writers continue to honor the humanity of Luke Perry/Fred Andrews as the season progresses. - Den of Geek EDIT

3/5 57% Riverdale: Season 4 - Chapter Sixty-Two: Witness for the Prosecution (TV Episode) I still am undecided about these flash forwards, but the use of Eels' "Fresh Blood" as Archie, Betty, and Veronica were arrested for Jughead's murder was a left-field, inspired choice. - Den of Geek EDIT

0.5/5 75% Riverdale: Season 4 - Chapter Fifty-Nine: Fast Times at Riverdale High (TV Episode) With the season just ramping up and having to establish what its driving plots will be, it is somewhat understandable that this episode was such a clunky wheel spinner.

5/5 100% Riverdale: Season 4 - Chapter Fifty-Eight: In Memoriam (TV Episode) When I first heard that Shannen Doherty had been cast in this episode, I admit that my eyes rolled hard. So imagine my surprise when her meta-textured appearance as the woman who Perry sacrificed himself to save was a poignant, understated affair. - Den of Geek EDIT

13% Ferris Bueller: Season 1 (TV, 1990-1991) Ferris Bueller might be the most intolerable television spin-off of a beloved motion picture ever... everything that made John Hughes' 1986 comedy favorite so beloved is completely absent from its TV counterpart. - Den of Geek EDIT

100% Riverdale: Season 3 - Chapter Fifty-Four: Fear the Reaper (TV Episode) These Tarantino-on-a-budget moments are the sort of unrestrained goofiness that I've come to expect, nay, demand from Riverdale. - Den of Geek EDIT

5/5 81% Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: Part 2 (TV, 2018) Whereas the first crop of episodes took some time to find their footing, these ones have a confidence out of the gate that is backed up by a stronger narrative and better writing across the board. - Den of Geek EDIT

100% Riverdale: Season 3 - Chapter Fifty: American Dreams (TV Episode) As someone who is a fan of slow burn Riverdale, this episode - the show and FP's 50th - feels like the first domino setting in motion a chain reaction that will carry on through to the end of the season. - Den of Geek EDIT

69% Riverdale: Season 3 - Chapter Forty-Two: The Man in Black (TV Episode) Don't lose sight of the fact that a sexy, crime-filled show about Archie Comics is inherently ridiculous, and the writers are now in a groove where they can make this bigger, bolder, and yes, goofier than ever before. This show is a gift. - Den of Geek EDIT

3.5/5 77% Riverdale: Season 3 - Chapter Forty-One: Manhunter (TV Episode) I am so in love with the fact that [Veronica] has embraced her Monica Posh alter ego to the point that it is now her e-mail address. It's these non-sensical throwaway moments that make me love Riverdale even more than I already do. - Den of Geek EDIT

4.5/5 84% Riverdale: Season 3 (TV, 2017) One of our wishes was always that Riverdale would embrace the inherent insanity in making a dark Archie reboot and amplifiying its silly strangeness. This season it has done so. - Den of Geek EDIT

5/5 89% Riverdale: Season 3 - Chapter Thirty-Nine: The Midnight Club (TV Episode) What "The Midnight Club" does so well is follow Riverdale's mission statement of blending existing pop culture with over 75 years of Archie Comics lore to create a show that is its own funhouse mirror version of teen dramas. - Den of Geek EDIT

3/5 86% Riverdale: Season 3 - Chapter Thirty-Eight: As Above, So Below (TV Episode) Not a terrible episode by any stretch, but we want more of the killer, less of the filler. Which means once more, Archie's storyline is the dullest on this show. Sigh. - Den of Geek EDIT

5/5 95% Riverdale: Season 3 - Chapter Thirty-Six: Labor Day (TV Episode) I mentioned how the success of the series has liberated the show's writers to take chances and really go for it in terms of strangeness. And the third act of tonight's show is very strange indeed. - Den of Geek EDIT
