Love, Simon mania is taking over Riverdale, and Russ Burlingame and Chris Hayner are here to break it down for you!
Craig Byrne could not be with us this week, but he did provide the snazzy cover art for tonight's episode.
What a crazy, busy, crazy episode.
And then Russ had internet issues and took like 6 hours to upload the damn thing.
So there are basically no show notes because it’s time for him to sleep.

Russ, Craig, and Chris get together to talk about the first new Riverdale episode of 2018! Pardon our dust -- there were some sound quality issues relating to slow connectivity (thanks, East Coast snowy weather!) -- but if you have been listening right along, you have heard worse. Trust me.
We talk about what exactly is going on with the Blossom Family, the Cooper Family (aka the Blossom Family Part II), and the FBI...who aren't really in Riverdale, right? We can all agree that guy is full of crap?
Anyway, have a listen!
NEW YEAR, NEW DRAMA — Tensions mount when the sudden shut down of Southside High forces Jughead (Cole Sprouse) and his fellow serpents to transfer to Riverdale High. Veronica (Camila Mendes) ensures Hiram (Mark Consuelos) and Hermoine (Marisol Nichols) that she’s still on board with their plans for SoDale. Archie (KJ Apa) is conflicted when he is asked to gather some information on Hiram’s suspicious business dealings. Betty (Lili Reinhart) sets out on a quest to find her long-lost brother, Chic (guest star Hart Denton). Madelaine Petsch, Madchen Amick, Luke Perry, Ashleigh Murray, Skeet Ulrich and Casey Cott also star. Tim Hunter directed the episode written by Britta Lundin & Brian E. Paterson (#210). Original airdate 1/17/2018.
It's the season 2 finale of Riverdale, and Russ and Chris got together to talk about it.
We talk a lot about the idea of Jughead as a reliable (or not) narrator.
Enjoy! Back soon with a Double Digest catch-up.
Oh, man, it's been a while.
It will be a while longer for a fuller examination, but here are Russ's first thoughts, followed by Chris's first thoughts, on tonight's episode.
The most intense episode of the series so far! Check out what we had to say about it.
