You can’t get caught in the middle of this. Don’t you feel what’s happening? My grandfather coming here, Derek turning Erica and Isaac, it’s - It’s like battle lines are being drawn. There’s always crossfire. (..) I don’t want you to be normal. I want you to be alive.
Hello there / somebody who wants to watch riverdale where would I find it (non American) / and are there any 'rude' scenes in? Thanks
Netflix, I don’t know what countries it’s on netflix but non-Americans have it on Netflix for free. Uh… I don’t know what you mean by rude but I’m going with yes. Here’s a list of things I’ve seen.
Ep 1-3 - Stationary rape between a student and a teacher, homophobia, biphobia, aphobia, fatphobia, ableism Ep 4-5 - I missed these but looks like more ableism, slut shaming, and the teacher arc ends (in a bullshit way) Ep 6 - More fatphobia. Also has the B*ghead kiss which is really written like just kiss women when they are hysterical Ep 7 - Casual homophobia Ep 8 - Domestic violence TW Ep 9 - Anti-native saying Ep 10 - If you don’t like seeing Jughead forced into situations he doesn’t like, I’d include a trigger warning here. The vacuum context on screen isn’t bad but I know Jughead being pushed into things is triggering because of the show’s erasure.
Have I watched 8/10 episodes? Yes Would I suggest anyone else watch it? Not at all. I wouldn’t watch it if I didn’t have to see it discussed daily.
If you can excuse all of the above, and lean heavy on the fact that the show has a lot of woc with big roles, it’s an average show. Ep 3 gave me a panic attack before they stopped queerbaiting and the crew outright said no. Now they are back to queerbaiting… So like I wouldn’t advice watching, but I’m not here to stop you if you decide to.
