It's the return of Riverdale, plus Diabolical and more DMZ coverage, on an all-new The Superhero Show Show!

On an all-new, all-different Superhero Show Show, Riverdale is back and is in the spotlight. The five episode "Rivervale" mini-series is over, and now we're back in good old, normal Riverdale...where the core four now has superpowers. That's right, it looks like we have crossed the line into the supernatural, as Archie is now invulnerable, Betty can see auras around killers, and Jughead is deaf. Meanwhile, Veronica and Reggie deal with fathers in very different ways! Will this be the episode that convinces the Taste Buds that Riverdale has returned to form? Join Cassie and the Taste Budz as they hack through all of the layers and intricacies of this wonderful show. 

Plus, the Friends break out the old Change One Letter game! Ryan has accidentally misspelled all of the shows they watch, turning them into new shows! Now it's up to Mike, Cassie, and Katelynn to convince each other that series like President Alien, Moo Knight, and Hit-Donkey would make great shows!

All of that, plus reviews and discussions about every other TV show based on a comic book this week, including The Boys Presents Diabolical, DMZ, The Walking Dead, Snowpiercer, Superman and Lois, Naomi, and The Flash! This one, for the first time ever, is JUST TOO MUCH SHOW!
