The first season was great. Another classic example of using up all its story and then getting renewed.

Seven years of high school... down the drain!

Apparently the show didn't have enough of this...

I quit about 3/4 into season 2. Even the eye candy wasn't enough to keep me interested in a show that was going off the rails after one season.

Did they do a Punisher or Predator crossover? What about a storyline where President Archie Andrews gets assassinated?

No, it did. I got about 2 episodes in before I realized this show wasn't for me because I wasn't a gay guy

No, they have to do a Frankenstein arc first.

You don't have to be gay to enjoy a good handy, but I refuse to watch anything on the CW channel because they produce the worst tv shows in history... and they are cancelling everything before a big sale off.

I don't know why folks were shocked about the supernatural elements being added in.  I mean Archie is connected in-universe with not only Josie and the Pussicats but, iirc, Casper and Sabrina, the Teenage Witch too.

This reminds me of a webcomic I read in the early 2000s called College Roomies from Hell which started out as some college freshmen trying to cope with dating and roommates and then for one reason a few stumble into a radioactive pool, got superpowers, and one of them happened to be a werewolf for some reason, and then there were some cultists, and a plot about saving the world, and after all of that I went Fark it and stopped reading webcomics altogether until I found Axe Cop and Doctor McNinja who started goofy and STAYED goofy, dammit, and didn't have any characters get miscarriages or try to emulate Funky Winkerbean.

Above all, good decision, guys.

She's (drawn) so rock-steady.

Rumor has it that Sabrina's supposed to show up for more than just a glorified cameo in the next season. Might be worth it to watch, I loved Kiernan Shipka's Sabrina. Her show went totally bonkers in the 3rd and 4th seasons, but it was a fun ride.

They decided to avoid that by jumping ahead like ten years after season 3 or so.

Mrs. Samurai watched the first season, then just kept hate-watching it.

/This may be the rare case of the actors being happy the show is over.

Once Upon a Time went off the rails.

Supernatural went off the rails.

Riverdale multi-track drifted off the rails, over a giant magical robot shark, and escaped Earth's orbit in search of it's home planet.

Every week Mrs. Samurai tried to explain what happened.  It made my GURPS totally-not-a-stargate campaign seem tame and linear by comparison.

I kept up with Once until the preview for the next season had Elsa from frozen in it... just no.

Light entertainment, free, next day streaming so easy to keep up with.

I'll watch the rest.
