Farewell, Fred Andrews: Recapping "In Memoriam" (Chapter 58)

10/10/2019
More
No matter how zany the last season of Riverdale got, it was always under the somber shadow of the sudden and untimely passing of Luke Perry. Perry’s performance as Fred Andrews was like a constant warm hug, which made him the true beating heart of Riverdale. Respectfully, the show proceeded as planned with season three, taking its time to craft a proper goodbye to the actor who felt like a father to the entire cast. Which brings us to “In Memoriam,’ Riverdale’s fourth season premiere that...

We've been wondering for weeks what The Farm is really up to, so it was to our gleeful surprise that the secret to the hippie-chic cult was right there in its name the whole time. Oh, they're farming alright! With "The Dark Secret Of Harvest House," Riverdale finally fills in some blanks as it approaches its season three endgame, and it has a blast doing it, thus producing one of the best episodes of the season.

Dance(s) With Death: Recapping “Prom Night” (Chapter 55)

5/2/2019

Riverdale's "Prom Night" may have undergone a last-minute theme change, but the night was going off without a hitch until two uninvited party-crashers showed up. Yes, a supervillain team-up caps off a satisfying and scary episode also packed with the return of Mary Andrews, the gospel of The Gargoyle King, and some lame infinity tattoos. Dial M For Maple hosts Marah and Cameron wonder how Riverdale High students were supposed to interpret the "Fire & Ice" theme, and share their own prom...

4/25/2019

"Join us! We welcome you!" Just when you think Riverdale can't get any weirder, The Farm fully lets its cult flag fly in "Fear The Reaper." This week, Dial M For Maple is thrilled to welcome back special guest host, LaToya Ferguson! Though LaToya used to write The A.V. Club reviews for the series, she tapped out earlier this season, so Cameron does his best Edgar Evernever impression to draw her back into the cult of Riverdale. Plus, we say goodbye to Josie McCoy—one of the show's only...

Bitch, I’m In Love With Her: Recapping “Jawbreaker” (Chapter 53)

4/18/2019
More
The bobbed wig may be gone, but Dark Betty is back in full force on this week's Riverdale. Yes, it's a tense episode all around with Betty's mom-napping, Archie's roughest boxing match yet, and a new threat in the form of rabid, drugged-out townsfolk inching us closer to our Afterlife With Archie zombie fantasies. In this week's Dial M For Maple, we heed Dr. Curdle, Jr.'s ominous warnings and make the case for still being "Team Betty." Plus, Marah and Cameron speculate: There's no way Edgar...

Betty Snooper: Recapping “The Raid” (Chapter 52)

4/1/2019
More
Never say Evernever! On this week's Riverdale, we finally get our proper introduction to Chad Michael Murray's Edgar Evernever and, as expected, this guy's a charmer! But he and the Farmies have other tricks up their sleeves: Apparently they're helping Cheryl, Alice, and others talk to dead people? We have no idea how that works, but nevertheless, Betty "Snooper" and Dial M For Maple are on the case. Hosts Marah and Cameron theorize The Farm's ulterior motives, ponder when they'll be seeing...

3/21/2019
More
"How very," indeed! For this season's big musical episode, "Big Fun," Riverdale pulls out all the stops with a tribute to Heathers: The Musical. This is the show at its campiest and its most emotionally raw, and Dial M For Maple cannot get enough. Hosts Marah and Cameron kick off the podcast by discussing their favorite moment—it's "Seventeen," in a landslide—and proceed to explain why they think the musical genre suits the show better than any other. Plus, Cameron argues that Cole Sprouse...

Happy 50th episode, Riverdale ! This week, the show celebrates the milestone with "American Dreams," an episode chock-full of the Joneses, semi-breakups, and kinky blindfold action. Yes, this may be the steamiest Riverdale yet—thanks to one killer Choni scene—but that doesn't mean it's smooth sailing for our favorite 'ship. Dial M For Maple also takes a moment to assess the status of "Falice" and "Veggie," and we preview Cole Sprouse's first movie-star role in Five Feet Apart. Plus, Cameron...

Remembering Luke Perry & Recapping “Fire Walk With Me” (Chapter 49)

3/8/2019

R.I.P. Luke Perry. It's been a tough week for many in the wake of such heartbreaking news, but Riverdale nobly marches on. And while Dial M For Maple dutifully recaps the fiery "Fire Walk With Me" (a surprisingly literal episode title), our podcast cedes much of its time to honor the life and legacy of the late, great Luke Perry, Riverdale's very own Fred Andrews. Hosts Marah and Cameron tell stories from when they were lucky enough to bask in the actor's warm, generous glow. Plus, we share...

Alice Reborn!: Recapping “Requiem For A Welterweight” (Chapter 48)

3/1/2019

Gangs are running amok in Riverdale—really, it's hard to keep track—but it’s looking like the most dangerous group of all just might be The Farm. In this week’s Dial M For Maple, we dissect the countless threats of “Requiem For A Welterweight,” from the Gargoyles’ new junkie leader to Elio’s sharp cheekbones to (our personal favorite) Evelyn Evernever. Hosts Cameron and Marah try to start their own insane Riverdale gangs, and we ask the most important question of all: What the heck is the...

Brokeback Riverdale: Recapping “Bizzarodale” (Chapter 47)

2/7/2019
More
After offering up musicals, heists, and flashback episodes, Riverdale finally gets back to basics to spend some time with its beloved secondary characters in the charming "Bizarrodale." And while it's nice to see more of Josie and Reggie, Dial M For Maple is especially thankful for meaty plot lines for the show's LGBTQ characters, Cheryl, Toni, Kevin, and Moose. Hosts Marah and Cameron commend the realism of the Choni drama, sing the praises of Gina Gershon, and wonder how much longer 'til...

Forget It, Jug, It’s Riverdale: Recapping “The Red Dahlia” (Chapter 46)

1/31/2019
More
Noir has been in the DNA of Riverdale since the beginning, so it should be no surprise that the noir-tastic "The Red Dahlia" is a blast—an episode that doubles down on whodunnits, double-crosses, and dames to kill for. This week, Dial M For Maple pieces the clues together to figure out where the show will go from here, and wonders whether or not Archie should've just gone through with his plan. Plus, hosts Marah and Cameron make a case for Maximum Security Prison Hal, and demand to see more...

After immediately brushing off last week's cliffhanger, Riverdale tears through plot at a thrilling pace in "The Stranger."

Bear Attacks And Cabaret Acts: Recapping "No Exit" (Chapter 44)

1/17/2019

With its first episode of 2019, Riverdale slinks into the new year like a feline-masked cat burglar quietly hunting for a Glamourgé Egg. The town quarantine is five weeks in the past, and everyone is adjusting to a life thrown out of balance—the Serpents are out of work, the Cooper household is now a makeshift orphanage, and Archie's just trying to make the most of the "Canadian Hinterlands." As always, Dial M For Maple is on hand to discuss what really matters: Nana Rose is looking fierce!...

Quaran-TEENS: Recapping "Outbreak" (Chapter 43)

12/13/2018

Riverdale's mid-season finale feels so epic it's "practically biblical," as Hiram would put it. But beyond that, it's a ton of fun, thanks largely to a visit to The Jones Yard and a much-needed injection of Cheryl Bombshell. In this week's Dial M For Maple, Marah has suspicions about Gladys Jones, and Cameron ties it all back to the plot of Batman Begins. Plus, we wonder how these characters would fare in the event of an Archie Comics-inspired zombie outbreak. Learn more about your ad...
