Critic Reviews for Chapter Six: Faster, Pussycats! Kill! Kill!

I mean, really, how has someone not murdered this person yet? Murder seems very easy and accessible in this town.

This episode also reminded us that, although there is a lot of unresolved drama, the characters are very much still high school students and have to focus on everyday things like variety shows.

Riverdale is a show that privileges the visceral and joyful over emotional depth.

We finally got a Josie-centric story on Riverdale Season 1 Episode 6. It took weeks for this to happen. I couldn't be happier.

Faster, Pussycats! Kill! Kill! was the most straightforward episode of Riverdale to date. It was very high school soap opera, which isn't a bad thing.

Those Cooper gals are cray. And they continue to be among the most fantastic aspect of the series.

I would like to start by saying that Alice Cooper has earned my respect and affection by being the only person on Riverdale to inflect the extremely implausible nickname "Jughead" with the derision it deserves.

If you really thought about it, Riverdale is just like Lorde, a stunning convergence of the brooding vampiness of Hot Topic with the wholesome Americana of a new pair of Keds.

I mention Riverdale's focus on history and pop culture at the top here because Chapter Six: Faster, Pussycats! Kill! Kill! is perhaps the series' most clever look at the way the past interacts with the present.

Apr 20, 2017 | Rating: 7.5/10 | Full Review…

Faster, Pussycats! Kill! Kill! is the best possible version of a Riverdale episode, delivering everything we could ever want out of this show, unless what we want is a compelling storyline featuring Archie Andrews.
