amongst comics nerds who watch Riverdale, a common reaction to the show is "this is very stupid," even if we like it
except I don't think it's actually "stupid," it's just playing by the rules of teen drama, which comics nerds are largely unfamiliar with
I'm sure if you're used to, say, Glee or Pretty Little Liars, it is actually Star Trek and Doctor Who that feels stupid in a similar way
@Alexis this is such a good observation
@InspectorCaracal which isn't to say Riverdale can't be pretty stupid sometimes, in last week's Halloween episode, Jughead gets buried alive while Cheryl Blossom ouija boards her dead brother's corpse's haunted doll's ghost.
@Alexis yeah but so can star trek, it totally holds up
@InspectorCaracal oh yeah, for sure, the moon was an egg on Doctor Who a couple years back
@Alexis oh my gosh 🤣
@Alexis okay but this sounds like an actual Archie comic
@InspectorCaracal ...You know what, the gothic horror aesthetic sort of disguises it, but you're not wrong.
@Alexis right?? I can imagine the issue cover and everything XD
