10 Shows to Watch If You Still Can't Get Over Riverdale
Eleven weeks fly by so fast when you're watching a show as addictive as Riverdale. With Netflix's breakout show coming to a close very soon, you're probably already on the lookout for your next binge-worthy series. Here, we list 10 series that are similar to Riverdale in some way, whether it's the teen drama, the juicy murder case, or just the overall dark, gloomy, and aesthetically pleasing tone.
When Riverdale's trailer was first unveiled, many drew comparisons to this '90s cult favorite, and it's easy to see why. Much like Riverdale and its residents, nothing in the fictional Twin Peaks town is quite like it seems and everyone is harboring a dark secret. And again, much like Netflix's show, Twin Peaks has a healthy mix of crime and the bizarre. You'll be eagerly following FBI agent Dale Cooper's (Kyle MacLachlan) murder investigation in no time.

This thrilling gem from Shonda Rhimes has everything a Riverdale fan could want: badass female characters, a whodunit mystery, and good old-fashioned hookups and breakups. Oscar winner Viola Davis plays Annalise Keating, a brilliant criminal defense attorney who hires the best and most ambitious members of her class to help solve real-life cases.
Okay, the swanky Upper East Side is nowhere like the quaint Riverdale town, but its characters may have more in common than you think. For instance, many have likened the onscreen friendship of Betty and Veronica (Lili Reinhart and Camila Mendes) to that of Serena and Blair (Blake Lively and Leighton Meester). Come to think of it, you can also draw parallels to resident rich mean girl, Cheryl Blossom (Madelaine Petsch). Then there's Jughead (Cole Sprouse), whose brooding outsider status is similar to Dan (Penn Badgley), or Archie (KJ Apa) who is also comparable to Nate (Chace Crawford)...the list goes on.
This TV adaptation of the hit horror franchise hits all the right notes of intrigue, high school drama, and small-town murder. After a cyber-bullying incident results in a grisly death, a group of students suddenly become the target of a serial killer. Suddenly, the dark secrets of their tiny community resurfaces.
Marvel's Jessica Jones
If you love and can't help but root for Riverdale's awesome female characters, you'll probably fall in love with Jessica Jones, too. Mirroring the former's crime-show elements, this Marvel adaptation has Krysten Ritter playing a former superhero-turned-private investigator. Jessica Jones is unafraid to tread into darker territory, dealing with mature themes such as PTSD and abuse.

I've been investing in arts, photography, and writing. I've also got back to reading the other day and I finished reading this amazing book entitled 300 Things I Hope by Iain S. Thomas. It is all about the things the author hopes his readers to do in all aspects of life. So, I decided to make a version of it with all of the things I'm hoping for.
I hope I get to see my friends be successful in life. I hope to make a big mural someday. I hope to be a well-known artist like the artists I look up to. I hope to marry the person I am in love with today. I hope to be a little kinder to myself. I hope to see happiness even in the smallest things. I hope to travel the world. I hope to be a good mother and a wife to my future family. I hope to have my artworks displayed in a gallery or an exhibit. I hope to learn more about creative writing. I hope I won't learn how to get tired and give up my passion. I hope I won't get too hard on myself whenever I don't get the results I've been wanting to see in my works. I hope to love myself more even on the days I hate it the most. I hope to lead and empower women; to be their voice and for them to believe in themselves that they can be the woman they look up to. And when I've reached my limit of these things, I hope I won't get tired of reminding myself that my emotions don't make me weak, hence, makes me stronger. These are some of the things I always hope for. What about you? What are you hoping for?
I started fixing myself this quarantine. I mean, I started trying makeup products. As a teen, I'm on my phone almost every hour of the day, scroll on my social media accounts, especially Instagram, and also Pinterest where you get to see nice and pleasing photography by bunch of amazing and beautiful people from different parts of the world. So I started taking my own as well. I did not know that taking your own photo and try to get an Instagramable one is sooooooooo hard, it's exhausting. I do not have alot of space in my room, and I would definitely not do it outside our house because of Corona Virus, and I don't want to be seen by our neighbors HAHA so I have no choice but to make tiis inside my room.
Out of atleast 25 shots, only 2 are a nice picture. While I'm all sweaty and tired, I am proud of what I could do beyond my comfort zone. And this definitely built my self confidence, (and I secret love the compliments I received from both people I know and don't know) It's not my first time visiting in here, Candy! But I'm new to writing my thoughts and experiences, so bare with me HAHA.
Until next time!
First. Pixie dust and paper cuts – these are the first things Wendy knew about Peter Pan. Aurora first met Prince Philip when she was sixteen. Learning how to ride a bike was also a first while I was growing up, but you are probably the first of too many. The first collection of dust and stars; maybe Luna will try to ask, who was your first? I might answer and tell her that it was you.
The first of too many stars in the sky. You are the first of too many fallen leaves during fall – and you will be the most anticipated snowflake as winter comes. A dark path that you can’t see without any light, hence, you were once the moon and there are the stars that shine so bright at night. Are we too early? Or we just really want to be ahead of time? Even in a glimpse, I would like to see the two of us connect as if we can reach the sky. There are other parts of the heavens you have never saw and other oceans you haven’t laid your feet onto – but the constellations will always wait for you. Close your eyes, love, close your eyes. Start counting backward: 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Count backward until you see the twinkling lights that will guide you to the right path. To the right satellite; to the right person. A first.
There are many firsts – first love, first heartbreak, first sport you played, the first thing you do in the morning, the first thing you remember about the person in front of you. There are a lot. It’s actually up to us how we will consider something as a first. So, Primo, you are already a first of too many.
