Riverdale: ‘The Outsiders,’ SE01 E08

So, confession. I’ve never read The Outsiders or seen the movie based on it. So if this episode has carefully crafted references to it, I am the last guy to catch them. Mea culpa!

This episode has two plots wrapped around it like strands of DNA. Neither of them can be considered an A or B plot. So let us simply refer to them as whiteand black. They’re as equally delineated by gender as colour.

Riverdale: ‘In a Lonely Place,’ S01 E07

Greetings, Riverheads!  Apologies for taking so long to get back to you.  So much has been happening in our little land of the gingers! Love blooms and wilts, intrigues are being hatched, treachery and subterfuge are the rule of the day! Corporate competitions turn into bloody beatings!

‘Riverdale’: How’d We Get Here?

Riverdale, when you think about it, is perfectly suited for the CW. It’s about the prototypical teen and his buds, and (as we’ve seen) you can do pretty much anything with them.  Archie has been a kid, a teen, and grownup to get married to both his high school girlfriends. He’s also fought zombies.  

No, I’m serious.

So a setting and characterizations as flexible as that is going to be able to to have some interesting adaptations to a high school TV drama.

Therefore I’d like to suggest some books here that folks who regularly read our website might also enjoy reading, perhaps because some are by us, and some by friends, and some we just really dig.

Holiday Gift Guide 2016: A Cuppa Fandom

When temperatures drop and there’s a nip in the air, there’s nothing better than curling up under a cozy blanket with a nice cup of tea. This year, instead of giving friends and family just any old tea, give them a tea inspired by their favorite fandom from Adagio Teas. They have tea blends for almost every fandom.

Since winter has actually come, sip on a variety of Game of Thrones blends.

For the rebel, you can get the entire Suicide Squad.

You can boil up an array of Wizarding World potions,

And what could be better than settling down to watch The Doctor’s Christmas Day Special with a mug of Whovian Feels.

A sample tin, with fun fandom artwork, costs $5.00, or you can purchase an entire collection, like the entire potions collection for $24.00.

If  you’re particularly fond of that special geeky guy or gal, you can head to Society 6 where they have numerous mugs to match that perfect fandom tea.
