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!

‘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.

anneofgg-2016movieposter

I’ve been obsessed with Anne of Green Gables since I was a kid, and I’m always a bit nervous when new adaptations appear. I never want to see anything that ruins my Anne, so as I sat down to watch the PBS Holiday special, I crossed my fingers, and did my best to keep an open mind.

netflix-list-header

Halloween falls on a Monday this year which means that if you have to get up early the next day, you probably will be too tired from a weekend of festivities to do much of anything except sit on the couch and eat leftover candy.
