4.5/5 85% Riverdale: Season 2 - Chapter Thirty-Five: Brave New World (TV Episode) Archie was at his finest tonight, saving Serpents at home and in school, and generally becoming the leading figure he was always meant to be.‐ Den of Geek

4/5 100% Riverdale: Season 2 - Chapter Thirty-Two: Prisoners (TV Episode) We've never seen Alice as emotionally vulnerable as we have over the course of the past two weeks, with Mädchen Amick currently giving Lili Reinhart a run for her money as Riverdale's greatest performer.‐ Den of Geek

3.5/5 86% Riverdale: Season 2 - Chapter Twenty-Nine: Primary Colors (TV Episode) While the status quo will be restored soon enough, there's much dramatic potential that can be mined from Archie/Veronica and Betty/Jughead being on opposite sides.‐ Den of Geek

4/5 100% Riverdale: Season 2 - Chapter Twenty-Eight: There Will Be Blood (TV Episode) The emotionally inconsistent Weeble Wobble that is Archie Andrews actually showed a glimmer of intelligence tonight.‐ Den of Geek

4.5/5 89% Riverdale: Season 2 - Chapter Twenty-Six: The Tell-Tale Heart (TV Episode) The aforementioned plots were interesting enough, and a hell of a lot of fun. What makes this episode a tiny bit away from being a classic were the subplots in which the Jones boys confront Hiram Lodge.‐ Den of Geek

3.5/5 89% Riverdale: Season 2 - Chapter Twenty-Five: The Wicked and the Divine (TV Episode) "The Wicked and the Divine" is a plot-packed hour of television that has Archie fully embracing the darkness of Veronica's family even as she tries to protect him from it. ‐ Den of Geek

4/5 83% Riverdale: Season 2 - Chapter Twenty-Four: The Wrestler (TV Episode) Where's Archie in all of this? Like the best episodes of Riverdale, he's saddled with the least interesting storyline of the night.‐ Den of Geek

3.5/5 88% Riverdale: Season 2 - Chapter Twenty-Three: The Blackboard Jungle (TV Episode) At this point I have more than enough faith in Riverdale's writing staff that everything presented here will pay off down the line.‐ Den of Geek

5/5 89% Riverdale: Season 2 - Chapter Twenty-Two: Silent Night, Deadly Night (TV Episode) With Riverdale not returning until the middle of next month, tonight's midseason finale was seemingly custom made to keep people talking in the interim. Mission accomplished then, as there is a lot to chew on here.‐ Den of Geek

5/5 100% Riverdale: Season 2 - Chapter Twenty: Tales From the Darkside (TV Episode) Can we just talk about how beautiful this show is filmed?‐ Den of Geek

4.5/5 91% Riverdale: Season 2 - Chapter Nineteen: Death Proof (TV Episode) Riverdale's intent is an not exploitative one because this is a show that out of the gate has been pro-female, with the women characters often light years ahead of their male counterparts.‐ Den of Geek

5/5 92% Riverdale: Season 2 - Chapter Eighteen: When a Stranger Calls (TV Episode) Not trying to be glib comparing the fiction of what happened in tonight's episode to real events and the horrific trauma that so many victims out there have had to deal with, but rather speaking of how, planned or not, Riverdale is mirroring our society‐ Den of Geek

4.5/5 92% Riverdale: Season 2 - Chapter Seventeen: The Town That Dreaded Sundown (TV Episode) Betty owned this episode, but Ronnie was a close second. And yes, it's worth noting again that she mentioned Archie's 'simplicity.' Even in the show's universe they seem to realize that Archie can be a dolt at time.‐ Den of Geek

5/5 88% Riverdale: Season 2 - Chapter Fourteen: A Kiss Before Dying (TV Episode) The biggest problem with Riverdale's first season was that Archie was far too often sidelined in a show where we should have been the focus of attention.‐ Den of Geek

4.5/5 88% Riverdale: Season 1 (TV, 2017) Like everything in this highly addictive show, there's so much more bubbling under the surface than you initially realize.‐ Den of Geek

100% Riverdale: Season 1 - Chapter Twelve: Anatomy of a Murder (TV Episode) Unlike Twin Peaks (or exactly like it, depending on your POV) the first season of Riverdale felt more about the characters than the central mystery driving the show.‐ Den of Geek

4.5/5 73% Riverdale: Season 1 - Chapter Thirteen: The Sweet Hereafter (TV Episode) So as much that went down tonight that was great -- and there was a lot -- it feels a bit deflated under the expectations.‐ Den of Geek

5/5 100% Riverdale: Season 1 - Chapter Eleven: To Riverdale and Back Again (TV Episode) Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart were on fire performance wise tonight, buoyed by a script that was perhaps the series best to date.‐ Den of Geek

5/5 91% Riverdale: Season 1 - Chapter Nine: La Grande Illusion (TV Episode) As the season has progressed, Camila Mendes' Veronica has been a breakout character because of how she projects a believable mix of strength and vulernability.‐ Den of Geek

4/5 82% Riverdale: Season 1 - Chapter Eight: The Outsiders (TV Episode) So much family tension in one episode!‐ Den of Geek

3.5/5 91% Riverdale: Season 1 - Chapter Seven: In a Lonely Place (TV Episode) This was probably the weakest installment of Riverdale to date. Not bad by any stretch, but there seemed to be an awful lot of wheel-spinning this time around.‐ Den of Geek

4.5/5 91% Riverdale: Season 1 - Chapter Six: Faster, Pussycats! Kill! Kill! (TV Episode) Those Cooper gals are cray. And they continue to be among the most fantastic aspect of the series.‐ Den of Geek

4.5/5 100% Riverdale: Season 1 - Chapter Five: Heart of Darkness (TV Episode) All of these developments were fantastic, unfortunately none of them involved, you know, the main character.‐ Den of Geek

5/5 83% Riverdale: Season 1 - Chapter Four: The Last Picture Show (TV Episode) In the month since it has debuted, Riverdale has repeatedly proven that a scorched earth policy is these characters default setting. Narratively this was a smart move.‐ Den of Geek

4/5 92% Riverdale: Season 1 - Chapter Three: Body Double (TV Episode) The third, and most eventful, episode of Riverdale to date was full of competing storylines that ran the gamut from compelling (the solidifaction of Betty and Veronica's friendship) to yawn-inducing (Archie's quest to become a musician),‐ Den of Geek

4.5/5 100% Riverdale: Season 1 - Chapter Two: A Touch of Evil (TV Episode) While the Archie/Grundy/Jughead stuff formed the emotional core of this installment, equally noteworthy is the continuing evolution of the friendship between Betty and Veronica.‐ Den of Geek
