10 Things to Expect While Watching a Telenovela

 
A couple of years ago I thought telenovelas were only something bored housewives and old ladies watched to pass the time. But now thanks to TV on demand and Netflix, I am a hardcore telenovela convert and devotee (and I’m not a housewife or “old”)! Some of you are probably thinking – Telenovelas? Aren’t they those foreign language soap operas with the comical melodrama, OTT bitch slaps and excessive shirtless men? Well, yes. Yes they are. But they’re also so much more than that. Like traditional English-speaking soap operas, telenovelas have their own set of traditional storylines and tropes that viewers look forward to. If you’re a novice, here are ten things to expect while watching a telenovela.

The 15 Best Jughead Jones Outfits, Ranked

Jughead Jones Outfits

One of my favourite aspects of The CW’s Riverdale are the fantastic outfits that the cast wear. Each character has their own distinct and enviable style. There is one character above all others that I love seeing dressed-up and dressed-down; Riverdale’s very own weirdo, Jughead Jones. Jughead, played by Cole Sprouse, is usually wearing his trademark grey crown beanie and layered flannels. His “S” t-shirt and hanging suspenders are also part of his signature look. Being a little bit (okay, a lot) in love with Jughead Jones (and let’s be real – Cole Sprouse), I decided to compile a ranking of my favourite outfits that he has worn in season 1. Here are the 15 best Jughead Jones outfits, ranked. Leave a comment below with your favourite Juggie outfits!

Who Killed Jason Blossom?

Jason Blossom Riverdale

Who killed Jason Blossom? It’s the biggest plot point of Season 1 of Riverdale and we’ve been trying to figure it out for 11 episodes.
Here’s what we know about Jason:
1. He was Cheryl’s twin.
2. He was captain of the school water polo team and a member of the football team.
3. He was heir to the Blossom maple syrup empire.
4. He impregnated and proposed to his girlfriend Polly Cooper.
5. They planned to run away together to raise their baby.
6. He made a deal with the Southside Serpents to deliver drugs for money.
7. He went missing on July 4th and was tortured and shot a week later.

Everyone is a suspect. But who actually had the motive, means and opportunity to kill Jason Blossom? Here are some of my theories.

Silversun (Australian Kids TV Show): Where Are They Now?

Silversun Australian Kids TV Show

Silversun was one of the greatest Australian kids tv shows of the early 2000s. Set in the year 2052, Silversun was a sci-fi children’s show that had aliens, romance, cool gadgets and horrible special effects. The series was short-lived and ended on a cliffhanger that people are still upset about today (#SilversunSeason3 #Revival). Thankfully, ABC hasn’t shut down the official Silversun website so us diehard fans (Silvies? Sunnies?) can relive some of those magical moments.

Being a kids tv show the majority of the cast were young at the time of filming. If you have ever wanted to know what happened to your favourite Silversun characters keep reading to find out!

Riverdale is Nothing Like Archie Comics and It’s Okay

Riverdale The CW Netflix Archie Comics Adaptation

The first episode of Riverdale, the teen drama based on the Archie Comics, aired last week. As a longtime fan and collector of the original comic books, I was pumped to hear it had been revived again (there have already been several film and TV adaptations). The wholesome and lovable characters that I knew were coming to the small screen! But after I watched the first teaser trailer, I realised that it wasn’t going to be anything like the soda-pops-and-sock-hops-world that I was expecting….and that was okay.
