Riverdale (Review)

Creator; Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa
45 minutes
Season 2 on Netflix.

Archie and his friends with a darker twist. Based on the comics, Riverdale will grab ahold of you whether you like it or not. It’s highly addictive, and though entertaining and will every now and then crawl underneath your skin, don’t expect it to be like the comics from the 40’s.

Riverdale, a small town with darkness and one mystery after the other surfacing its ”normal” facade. We get to follow Archie and his friends as they together try to live life as teens but also solving murders, clues, and dealing with parents and school.

Riverdale was brought to my attention by a friend, and since I was in desperate need to find something to binge, I decided to give it a try and just like that, I had found a new guilty pleasure that I could enjoy while snuggled on my couch on these dark winter days.

There’s teen love, that is intoxicating, exciting, and filled with passion. Drama and rival between characters, the thrill of the crime and mystery, and the warmness of small towns. It’s Gossip Girl meets Pretty Little Liars meets Twin Peaks. 7/10

Atypical (Review)

Creator; Robia Rashid
30 minutes
Season 1 on Netflix.

Heartfelt, beautifully warm, and funny. All wrapped into an entertaining, brilliant, and informative show that will besides have you go through an emotional roller coaster, also teach you more about autism.

Randomly I decided to check out the Netflix Original Atypical on a gloomy day with nothing else to watch, so I had no expectations, hadn’t heard about it, and thought I’d give it a chance. I was hooked and ended up binge-watching the entire first season in two sittings.
It captures your soul with not only the phenomenal performance by the whole cast but the storyline is relatable when watching it from different perspectives and aspects.

They managed to so greatly combine autism with heart, care, and humor into a perfect blend of a tv-show that will steal your interest from beginning to end, and you will love every single bit of every moment.

We get to follow Sam, who is on the autism spectrum and his journey of finding a girlfriend, dealing with his family, school and relationship to his therapist.

I absolutely loved it, strongly recommended. 8/10

The Sinner (review)

Creator; Derek Simonds
Season 1 from 2017 – Episode 1 & 2 out now.

It’s quite too soon to actually write a review after sole seeing two episodes, but I am already hooked and deeply interested in the outcome and what lies ahead of this mystery, slowly waiting for the plot to unveil itself and characters to blossom throughout the storyline.

So far, it’s been intellectual and dark with a promising future, and I feel that the show can develop brutally as it goes on, they can go deeper, twist things up some more, and deliver some good tv with infinite suspense and thrill. It’s all up to the writers how they wanna play this out really, but if they continue this pace, they’ll have a fan base looking forward to season two before they know it.

Cora Tannetti, played by the immense talent and beautiful Jessica Biel, is a young mother and wife who out of the blue has some sort of meltdown and murders a young boy in cold blood. Now, they all must figure out what is causing and triggering these violent tendencies while giving you glimpses of her past in order to try to connect the dots and figure her out.

Definitely something to check out. 6.8/10
