Audience Reviews for Riverdale: Season 1

  • Nov 12, 2021
    Season 1 is Oscar worthy compared to the following seasons. The turning point was in the last 30s of S1 when Fred is shot and from that moment onwards, the series skyrockets down hill... and I loved every minute of it...

    I will missed their Highschool days. It's really a missed opportunity for the writers and showrunners not to made a scene in Season 1-4 where there's an 11 or 12 year old young boy who will falls inlove with Jughead Jones or a middle schooler boy who will touched Jughead's Teenage crotch in his cool jeans. I wonder how Jughead will gonna react to that? But it's not too late yet cause the actor still looks young especially without his mustache and even if his character is already a young adult in the latest and upcoming seasons the writers and showrunners can still do a scene where there will be a young boy who will touched his young adult crotch. Now it will be very interesting to see the reaction of a young adult Jughead Jones being groped by a young naughty gay kid.

    Was five stars before, but since the last episodes of season 5 it's pure shit. Every sentence ends with a musical that carries on for 5 minutes. Pure. Crap. Just end Riverdale for good, if this is what is what have come out of it.
  • Sep 10, 2021
    Loved season 1 - great plot!
  • Aug 26, 2021
    Probably the best season out of the bunch, too bad that ain't really that much of an accomplishment.
  • Aug 24, 2021
    A great start even though its cheesy and cringey at some points.
  • Aug 07, 2021
    A gripping, edge-of-your-seat mystery that will keep you guessing until the last minute.
  • Aug 03, 2021
    This season dives into the overall drama of high schoolers, even if it's not the most logical or realistic, it makes the season over-all entertaining. And the help of the Blossom's mystery vibe and aesthetic, make this season pretty easy to watch. I'd say it's the most consistent.
  • Jun 10, 2021
    With a soap opera flare and a devoted cast, Riverdale exceeded all of my preconceived notions to deliver an enticing first season. I was hooked from the start and could not stop watching until I finished the first season. Superb!
