Riverdale Recap and Review: (S02E02) Nighthawks

I guess we can let any delusions of a potentially light-hearted season 2 burn up in the flames of Thornhill. Or drown in the Sweet Valley River . . . whatever your preferred metaphor, things are continuing down a dark road in the town of Riverdale.    I’m starting to get the sense that the balance of the show is a little off. Season one did a decent job of balancing the shades of dark with a few rays of sunshine here and there. Season two is refusing to offer up any sort of comfort and even when it...

RIVERDALE Season Premiere Recap and Review: (S02E01) A Kiss Before Dying

It’s back! Oh, how I’ve missed Riverdale and Archie and the gang. Hell, I even missed Sheriff Keller, and that guy’s about as useful as, well . . . he’s not useful. As a show, Riverdale is grounded by its characters and driven by their stories and motivations. Sure, most of those characters are crazy (Cheryl, Mrs. Cooper, Mrs. Blossom, to name a few), but they’re the cornerstones that make Riverdale the dark and foreboding town that it is. And there’s a whole lot of new crazy going on this season. While the first season was anchored around the...

Bite-Sized Movie Reviews – BAYWATCH

If the Hoff was alive, he’d likely be rolling in his grave while muttering “I’ll be there for you . . .” if he had to watch the 2017 Baywatch and . . . oh wait, he’s still alive? And he’s in the movie? Moving on . . . ​In Hollywood’s effort to reboot absolutely everything, some executive received a note telling him to ‘reboot Baywatch’. It was probably planted there by David Hasselhoff (who thenscreamed out of the parking lot driving his talking car, a talking car that likely complained endlessly about the Hoff’s terrible tan). That’s how...

Bite-Sized Movie Reviews – ALIEN: COVENANT

The old adage remains true. In space, no one can hear you scream. Except for the people around you. They hear it, and it constantly inspires them to do the wrong thing which normally involves running needlessly into danger. As is the case with Alien Covenant which picks up ten years after the events of Prometheus and twenty years previous to Ripley and the crew of the Nostromo receiving that fateful distress signal.  Alien: Covenant didn’t exactly capture the tense spine tingling feelings from Scott’s original outing, nor did it feel as awkwardly scary (or confusing) as Prometheus. To...

Riverdale Recap and Review: (S01E13) The Sweet Hereafter

Oh how I’m going to miss writing reviews for this show, it leaves a chill running up and down my spine, like my entire body was thrust into ice water . . . I suppose I could just light a fire to warm up? <nudge, nudge, wink, wink> Riverdale ended its thirteen episode first season tonight and it ended with a bang. No, really. Quite literally a bang. A bang that left one of my favourite characters, and who I still believe to be the only truly good person in Riverdale, lying on the floor of Pop’s bleeding to...

Riverdale Recap and Review: (S01E12) Anatomy of a Murder

SPOILER ALERT – Murderers and accomplices were revealed on the latest episode of Riverdale and they’re included in this recap and review. If you haven’t watched it yet, I suggest you do so before continuing. Game of Thrones meets Riverdale on this week’s episode ‘Anatomy of Murder’. Sure it wasn’t golden-haired creepy rich twins incest, but after this week’s revelations, the Coopers and the Blossoms move one step closer to the iron throne. Now if we could only get some dragons having a burger at Pop’s Diner . . . but I digress. I truly thought we’d be waiting...

RIVERDALE Recap and Review: (S01E11) To Riverdale and Back Again

I have a theory on who killed Jason and why. But you’re going to have to read to the end to hear it. This week’s episode handed us a murderer wrapped up in a pretty little Skeet Ulrich bow, smoking gun in his closet, and nefarious partnerships with a well-known biker gang and an evil millionaire to cap it all off. Could Riverdale be so bold as to hand us such an obvious murderer? In a word . . . No. No they could not. Because in one single episode we’re led to believe that FP is Jason’s Killer...

RIVERDALE Recap and Review: (S01E10) The Lost Weekend

I’ve often complimented the CW shows on their ability to tie up dangling plot points and sub story arcs in a timely manner. Many shows prefer to drag things out for multiple episodes and sometimes entire seasons (*cough* The Blacklist *cough*). This can get arduous and can result in story fatigue. Don’t laugh, it’s a real condition, 1 in 10 Netflix subscribers suffer from it on a monthly basis. The CW on the other hand loves to introduce some juicy sub story and then tie it up in a neat bow and move on to the next. The latest...

Riverdale Recap and Review: (S01E09) La Grande Illusion

There are a number of universal truths in this world. Unbreakable and unbendable facts that shape our humanity in a physical, mental, and emotional sense. Water is wet. The sun rises and sets. Snow is cold. Cats have no souls. Pop Tarts are the best breakfast snack food ever created. And so on. However, there’s one universally acknowledged truth that shouldn’t be ignored: You never, ever, ever, ever, ever, mess with a redhead. However, due to the unusual abundance of gingers in Riverdale, it’s impossible not to have a run in with one or more on a regular basis,...

RIVERDALE Recap and Review: (S01E08) The Outsiders

There quite literally is not one happy marriage happening in Riverdale. Maybe it’s the water, maybe it’s the maple syrup, maybe it’s the disturbing amount of redheads . . . but relationships are not meant to survive in that town. Tensions ran high in this episode with double crosses and back alley deals happening all over the place. Riverdale is a dangerous place to live. But they do have Skeet Ulrich, so there’s that. Let’s get to it . . . How many times can you reference abortion without actually saying the word ‘abortion’? I counted five times, but...
