It is a rarity (and an honour) that I watch a show on Netflix in one sitting (it's a mix between a short attention span and having a phone that is constantly vibrating). I have also, almost never, have been able to say that a show was that good I watched it twice (I hate reruns).
* Social life warning in effect *
Riverdale is one of those shows that has me questioning myself into saying, "how in the hell did I just watch this twice?" But wow, the storyline is actually really intriguing and captivating (like I'm not looking at my phone) and the actors are very good looking (Hey Casey Cott). Now talking to myself is one thing, but for me to be so adamant in bringing this show up in conversation (sorry friends) was just a warning sign that I may have a problem (no pity needed, I'm good).
We can't all like the same shows, and that's ok (not really, stop reading this). However, I'm telling you Riverdale has the drama, mystery and lots of twists that will keep you wanting more (or wanting less shirts on, if you know what I mean). The story takes place in a town called Riverdale and is based on the Archie comics (never a big fan). The thing is, the modern take on an old idea and the Pretty Little Liars / Gossip Girl -esque vibes of it really got me hooked (seriously shook). Betty, Veronica, Jughead, Archie and even Kevin (YAS!) are all trying to do their thing and I just can't stop watching how it all unfolds (again, shook).
Now, if you had plans this weekend, put them on hold and watch the 5 episodes that are up (at the time of when this was posted obvs) on Netflix. You will not only thank me, but you will also be in with the greater portion of society that also have watched it (get with it honestly), dinners and parties can wait (like do you even want to go out).
So, go forth and be merry with the knowledge that you will not have wasted your time (if you think you did, honestly there isn't much hope for you).
As prep, here is a list of my favourite characters (yes, in order):
- Cheryl (that white dress tho)
- Everyone else
Sorry (not even thinking about it) if you binged ;)
