    Since more than half of the season 1 thread is devoted to season 2, I thought we should make a season 2 thread so:

    I m surprised by the amount of people on this site that are invested in this show. I watched the first two episodes of season 1, decided it was fun trash and stopped, and watched one awful episode of season 2 with my friend. I might decide to catch up.

    This is the guiltiest of my guilty pleasures, I feel like I’ve eaten a tub of ice cream after every episode… can’t stop tho. I enjoyed season one more so far though. Just keep the shirtless KJ Apa scenes coming pls.

    The last episode’s visuals were not the most consistently showy, but those shots of Betty at the bus stop were among the most conspicuous images of the series. This show is coming for an ASC nomination, assuming that they actually submit it unlike at the Emmys. The ASC actually awarded Smallville twice and also nominated Nikita, so they are not biased against the CW like the Emmys.

    I thought that after the buzz from the first season and everyone being a bit more comfortable, the show would come back better this year, but nope, this is very much still a guilty pleasure and not exactly what I would call good. The last episode had me laughing out loud at how bad it was—the worst of the series so far. The dialogue and plotting are variably just bad. I will say though that Archie punching the ice in the first season finale was one of the television scenes of the year. I saw a lot of potential in KJ Apa during the first season. The second season has really tested him with emotional material and it turns out that he is not quite up to the challenge.

    Cole Sprouse really should have negotiated second billing. I swear that they changed the Toni actress in the last episode, but IMDb tells me otherwise. I have no idea why they recast the Reggie character instead of just replacing him with a new character with a new name. This new Reggie is so different too, in terms of character, as well as performance.

    Look for me in the diner in the November 29th episode and also outside the student lounge in the December 6th episode! The set is cool because all of the interiors are in the same warehouse. My favourite part is how Betty and Archie’s rooms are across from each other so that they can do the through-the-window shots.

    Didn’t really enjoy last episode. Boring and weirdly edited.

    This show is such a mess, but works pretty great as a guilty pleasure.

    I agree that season 1 had some great moments (Cheryl in white at Jason’s funeral, drowning Cheryl) and I think that female part of the cast is much better (with Madelaine Petsch as MVP).

    Unfortunately, season 2 has been a disappointment so far and I’m pretty sure writers cannot handle 22 episodes a year, but we’ll see.

    Oh, and I FUCKING HATE the new Reggie – new actor is making him a giant jerk.
