In "A Night to Remember," an uneven second season comes to a head as Riverdale's first -- and hopefully not last -- musical episode gloriously weaves the show's many wandering threads back into its central murder-mystery yarn.
After much anticipation, the Riverdale musical episode has come and gone. While Cheryl deserved better (ie. the lead role of Carrie), it's a good thing she wasn't on stage for the musical after all.
Riverdale is the perfect show to tackle the musical episode convention. It's over-the-top; brimming with complex, bold characters; explicit in its motifs and stylization
I knew that musicals brought drama, but... well, Riverdale, you really have outdone yourself with this one.
With its musical episode on Wednesday night... Riverdale High left all of that nonsense behind-zeroing in on all the elements that have made the series great as Kevin's production of Carrie: The Musical made its stage debut.
The cast of Riverdale really did have the music in them!
Listen y'all, when an episode of television has the line "I will not succumb to thespian terrorism", what else can you really say about it? Ok. It turns out there's plenty to gush about.
"Chapter Thirty-One" goes Glee's predominant route of using covers to move the story and characters along, and while it's all a very surface level situation, it does mostly work.
Well, that was a perfect episode of television.
Welcome, all of you, to the Riverdale musical episode, or as I like to call it, a bright light in what's otherwise been a very confusing season.
Avoids most of the problem areas that have plagued the latter half of [it's] second season, while giving us what we want from this show: Beautifully-rendered teen angst shot through with dark humor, winking theatricality and a morbid central mystery.
