Veronica has listless indifference and she isn’t quietly poignant. There are many homages to the far superior film. Veronica’s ditched friend Betty is bitter and has her own plans. There is bad music. The new Heathers have motiveless malignity and exist only to twitter shame people. Subtlety isn’t a quality synonymous with this.
Heather Chandler (who is a larger woman) harasses Ram who is a raving idiot. Heather Chandler and her coven have a monumental disregard for the normals. Heather Candler can’t be bullied, reasoned or negotiated with. She’s all SJW vileness and the school is a social timebomb. There is overly arch dialogue. Heather Duke is nonbinary and Heather McNamara is a faker/desperate wannabe. They’re ideological fanatics. This is not dark and delicious. There is no extremely disturbing nastiness.
JD tries for moodily unpredictable. He has no wilful cruelty or gripping immediacy. Heather Duke is irritatingly smug. This is not dramatic or complicated. Heather McNamara is a butt of scorn. This is not forceful or innovative. Veronica’s parents (Wallace Langham is her dad) ignore her. There are dubious practises by the obvious teaching staff.
Hyper-critical Heather Chandler is socially conscious and completely ridiculous. This isn’t brilliant, surprising, beguiling or whimsical. Street trash JD can’t act. There is a drastic loss of quality when he is on screen. People speak stupid dialogue with utmost seriousness. This isn’t relentless or brutal. Everyday social interaction is intimidating. Veronica is all lies and deceit. Heather Chandler is revered. This was not darkly farcical or gloriously silly and it has no raw, vivid immediacy.
JD glances moodily. There is high school societal collapse and immoral behaviour. There is a collapse of moral consequence. Heather Chandler spews the harshest invective. She and her coven are all outré public personae. Veronica wants to avoid shame and preserve her reputation after she and Heather Chandler have a fight. This ep is not a substantial achievement.
Heather Chandler decides how people are placed culturally. Her derision of Veronica leads to a fateful act. JD and Veronica seek revenge with psychopathic intensity and ineptness. This ep has manifold deficiencies. No wonder it was not rapturously received. There is deliberate murk. Heather Duke wants to continue the cult mentality and sly indoctrination of Heather C. JD is not violent and terrifying. No wonder this was widely reviled.
There is talky intrigue and the hippy teacher Pauline annoys. This is all about the way you want to be perceived by others or something. Potential threat Heather Chandler is far more of a threat than Veronica and JD realise, because they’re stupid. This does not test creative limits or arouse feverish interest. There is no moral inquiry just a faked video. Heather C disrespected and openly attacked people, naturally she is mourned. Kurt Fuller plays the useless principle.
One is not quivering with anticipation for more. Heather C’s coterie is ghastly. Her gang have unyielding loyalty to her catechism of control and brutal reputation at this critical juncture. Heather Duke has an ongoing compulsion to annoy. This is not relentlessly jolly. The Heathers are polemicists and Veronica is highly distressed and emotionally tense. Heather C is commemorated. Betty wants to be Heather C’s successor. There is non-cathartic hate and no miasma of unease.
There is caked on makeup, Veronica is a raving idiot and this was a spectacular failure. It was not immediately urgent. JD’s creepy dad lurks. This ep was a grave miscalculation. JD’s dad is nonchalantly terrible. There is an interesting twist. Heather C’s faked suicide video got 27 million likes. Sigh.

This is not an affirming narrative. There is theological stress, poor practices, eccentric theology and sect promotion. On the show does Kelly do anything besides harass Billy Grimm? This was haplessly inefficient. There is underlit mumbling and secrets of the past. There is no acclaim for this. Jeff causes aggressive harm. This was underlit and there is a Manson homage. Jeff is a monster of selfishness and there are violent schemes.
“She’s done something, hasn’t she?”
The Devil You Know
Skye finds her father’s storage locker which has been untouched for 10 years. Who paid for it? This was innocuous. Roger parties with weirdoes. One of Sakelik’s sidekicks runs a video store in 2013. His name is Louis and he is a creepy cripple. Conflict is sowed. There is bad acting and illogical acts that make no sense. There is death. Stuart steps up. There is irrational hostility and no sense. No wonder this was yanked off air mid way through its one and only season.
