“Over the summer I watch the show and really enjoyed it and loved how the show ended with the cliffhangers.  but now as the new season progresses I just become more and more disappointed with every episode.  I used to love to watch the show and be excited to watch it but now when I watch it I tend to cringe.  The acting is getting worse and the characters actions are becoming slightly unrealistic I’m very disappointed about how the second season is going. I will not be continuing to watch the show any longer. “, says Alexandra Petras, a sophomore.

Watching “Riverdale”, despite its very dramatic events, allows teens to escape into a not so typical high school experience and the show continues to be the hot topic around the country.
