Caught up with the two most recent episodes. I'm starting to realize that the show is falling into a hole that other CW shows have fallen into and that is awkward dialog. There hasn't been anything too awful yet, but some cringe worthy lines like the "#RiverdaleStrong" line that Cheryl mutters into the loudspeakers just felt a little too forced. Also the interactions between Betty and Archie are also a little awkward.
Also, that scene with Victoria and Betty masquerading as her sister Polly at the hot tub was really weird. I liked it (?) but I was also like...wow, this is a little fucked up. I do like the tone that the show has taken. It's a lot darker than the comics, which is something I can definitely get behind. Anyway, I am enjoying the show so despite my minor qualms.
Also...surprise appearance from BARB:
