Is Riverdale good? Should I watch it?
Its….complicated. like if youre into melodramatic teen dramas with corny dialogue (which I am) then sure! if ur into mystery shows and the small town aesthetic then definitely! but if ur not into being relentlessly queerbaited (to the point that the writers/cast ADMITTED that they were queerbaiting), the asian/black charscters being ignored (reggie, pussycats, kj apa being whitewashed)/treated like shit (chuck’s torture and recharacterization is FOUL), and the romanticizing of student/teacher relationships (instead of treating it like rape they treat it like its sexy and tragically forbidden…yikes) then ummmm ur probably not gonna like this show. i mean i hate all that stuff but still continue to watch bc i hate myself and love suffering, plus i love veronica lodge. it wouldnt hurt to check out the first episode tho. riverdale is a very diverse town despite the way that characters of color are treated, and betty and veronica are rly cute. The show has A LOT of problems, some that i didnt even mention (K E V I N) but its still a nice lil show thats rly easy to get sucked into.
