Riverdale Season 3 Episode 13 Review: Requiem for a Welterweight

  • TVfanatic
If the price to join The Farm is drowning, their followers should really reconsider their life choices.

Alice nearly became Riverdale's next victim on Riverdale Season 3 Episode 13. Her brush with death came at the hands of her eldest daughter, but it's The Farm that has mass-produced this dangerous line of thinking. The path to "ascension" is a big cost.

Alice should count her lucky stars that Betty saved the day. She's the only one thinking clearly.

Betty is so underappreciated for the amount of work she puts in to help her family.

Between Alice, Polly, Hal, and even Chic, Betty had been their guardian angel who saved the day on countless occasions. And yet, they turned on her and scoffed her concerns every chance they got.

If a "baptism" required a waiver excusing death, the right course of action would be to feel concerned. It would be heartless for someone to not care.

On Riverdale Archie fights for his life (again), Veronica gets in deep with Gladys, and we begin to learn the truth about The Farm.

This Riverdale review contains spoilers.

Riverdale Season 3 Episode 13

"Josie, I'm an ex-con who walked out of the SATs, remember?"

So speaks Archie Andrews, a lovable doofus who never met a bad idea he couldn't saunter shirtless into the maelstrom of. His latest terrible decision? Accepting money from Elio (Julian Haig) to throw a fight with a bruiser reigning champ. You see, boxing helps Archie focus...even though when we saw him before the series' brief hiatus a few weeks back he was super into music again, but whatever.. The point is, the heart wants what the heart wants, and Archie's latest passion is to prove his worth by beating the crap out of anyone in his way. At least this time he is doing so in

2.11 The Wrestler

Let's recap things going from most to least interesting. At the start of tonight's episode, Jughead muses that in Riverdale "everything was the same and nothing was the same." He does this because, well, he's a terrible writer who isn't above aping Dickens' style to be profound. But also the ongoing battle between Riverdale's North and South Sides has turned his hometown into a, wink wink, tale of two cities, with seemingly everyone against the Serpents.

You see, it's time for the town's Pickens Day ceremonies that celebrate the Founding Father of the Sweetwater Valley, General Augustus Edward Pickens.

‘The Office’ Revival In the Works at NBC; Here’s Who Might Be Back

‘The Office’ Revival In the Works at NBC; Here’s Who Might Be Back
The Office” may soon be back open for business. Insiders confirm a report, first revealed by TV Line, that NBC is developing an updated version of the hit comedy, which originally ran for nine seasons (from 2005 to 2013).

Greg Daniels, who developed the U.S. “The Office” based on the U.K. series from Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, is behind the potential revival. (Coincidentally, Daniels was also kicking the tires on potentially bringing back another one of his old shows, “King of the Hill”).

How 'The Office' Almost Had A 'Modern Family' Spinoff

How 'The Office' Almost Had A  'Modern Family' Spinoff
"The Office" almost had a spinoff that sounds very similar to one of TV's top shows: "Modern Family."

In a TV Guide story, producers revealed there were talks to spinoff Ed Helms' Andy Bernard in a take on PBS's "An American Family."

"We were going to do a mockumentary version of the Loud family, with Helms' Andy as the dad and Catherine Tate [who later joined 'The Office' as Nellie Bertram] as the mom, living in a cul-de-sac somewhere in America. But in the intervening year, 'Modern Family' came out," Greg Daniels said. "And they did it."

Other "Office" spinoff ideas included a Jim (John Krasinski) and Pam (Jenna Fischer) family show, Craig Robinson getting his own show as Darryl and Dwight (Rainn Wilson) on his beet farm. "The problem was you didn't want to do anything that hurt the mother ship," former executive producer Michael Schur told TV Guide.

Dwight Schrute, A Cop?

Dwight Schrute, A Cop?
Rainn Wilson is moving on from "The Office" to CBS in "Backstrom."

According to EW, Wilson, who played Dwight Schrute on NBC's "The Office" for nine seasons, will star in the drama pilot about a self-destructive cop who tries and fails to change his behavior. "Backstrom" hails from "Bones" veteran Hart Hanson and also stars Dennis Haysbert and Kristoffer Polaha.

"Backstorm" is based on a Swedish book series from Leif G.W. Persson. Persson will serve as executive producer on the series, along with his agent Niclas Salomonsson and Hanson..

Wilson was originally attached to star in a possible "Office" spinoff titled "The Farm," but NBC passed on the project and a portion of it aired as an episode of "The Office."

"We had worked really hard on it and I think created a really cool and different pilot," Wilson said in an interview with HuffPost TV. "But it was kind

Rainn Wilson to Play Title Character on Backstrom

  • TVfanatic
Rainn Wilson is leaving both The Office and the world of comedy behind.

The actor has been cast as the title character on Backstrom, a CBS pilot that focuses on an overweight and offensive detective who is attempting to change his self-destructive behavior.

The series - based on a Swedish book series by Leif G.W. Persson and produced for TV by Hart Hanson (Bones) will also star Dennis Haysbert, Kristoffer Polaha and Page Kennedy.

The news comes just a couple days after The Office filmed its final scene, and also the week after that NBC sitcom aired what was meant to be a backdoor pilot for a Dwight Schrute spinoff titled The Farm.

But it was not meant to be - and NBC's loss will now be CBS' gain.

Rainn Wilson Set As The Lead In CBS Pilot ‘Backstrom’

After a lengthy search, The Office‘s Rainn Wilson has been tapped for the title role in the CBS/20th TV drama pilot Backstrom. Also cast in the project, based on the Swedish book series, is Page Kennedy. Written by Bones creator Hart Hanson, Backstrom centers on Everett Backstrom (Wilson), an overweight, offensive, irascible detective as he tries, and fails, to change his self-destructive behavior. In addition to starring, Wilson will serve as a producer. He segues to Backstrom straight from The Office, which wrapped production on its ninth and final episode yesterday. Wilson, repped by Wme and 3 Arts, played one of the Emmy-winning comedy series’ signature characters, Dwight Schrute, since the pilot. He also co-created and toplined a potential Dwight-centered Office spinoff, The Farm. After it didn’t go forward, Wilson became a hot commodity for pilots, fielding multiple offers. He turned all down, including walking away from a

'The Office' goes to 'The Farm,' and it's probably good it's not going back

We already know that "The Farm," a spinoff of "The Office" that would have centered on Dwight (Rainn Wilson) and his heretofore unknown siblings, isn't happening.

NBC and the show still decided to air a modified version of the spinoff pilot, though, devoting about half of Thursday's (March 14) "Office" to meeting Dwight's brother Jeb (Thomas Middleditch) and sister Frannie (Majandra Delfino) back to the beet farm for their aunt's funeral. Having seen the pared-down version, it looks like NBC made the right decision.

The biggest hurdle for the spinoff was always its central character. In the context of "The Office," Dwight is a great character, but nine seasons of his oddball (at best) and antisocial (at worst) behavior make it really hard to envision a show built around him. It's not that shows can't be built around people who aren't always likable -- heck, it was the guiding principle of "The Office" under Michael Scott.

'The Office' airs backdoor pilot for aborted Dwight spinoff. Would you have watched it?
Successfully spinning off a beloved TV show is trickier than it seems. For every Frasier or The Jeffersons, there’s an AfterMASH, The Ropers, or — perhaps most infamously of all — Joey.

It makes sense, then, for networks to hedge their bets by airing episodes of existing shows that serve as “backdoor pilots” for potential spinoffs. The Cosby Show did it when the Huxtable clan went to see Denise at Hillman College, setting up A Different World; Grey’s Anatomy did it when Addison took a trip to California, visiting the Private Practice she’d eventually join. And last night, The Office

NBC declined to order "The Farm" to series, and Greg Daniels decided to retrofit it(**) into a slightly more traditional episode of "The Office."

The Office Review: Schrute Point

  • TVfanatic
"The Farm" worked as a back door pilot for a new comedy starring Rainn Wilson of the same name.  A while back we learned that this sitcom exploring the lives of the Schrute family was in fact not picked up for series by NBC.

I'm torn on how to feel about that fact.  On one side of the equation, it will be nice to have everything and everyone related to The Office end when the show does this spring.  However, Wilson is so good as Dwight that The Farm was certain to be as funny or better than a majority of what's currently on television.

Throughout the last nine seasons, viewers of The Office have been handed snippets of what Dwight's farm life looks like, and it has usually been hilarious.  Seeing him in that element 24/7 might expand that hilarity, but it could have also gotten old quickly.  Maybe what

The Office: 3 Reasons Why We Would Have Watched The Farm Spin-Off

It's no secret that Dwight (Rainn Wilson) is not the most likeable character on The Office. A prime example is the opening moments of Thursday's episode, in which Dunder Mifflin's top salesman threw dirt in the faces of his co-workers — literally — after finding out his beloved aunt died. But that harsh truth didn't stop longtime Office writer and executive producer Paul Lieberstein from crafting a backdoor pilot for a Schrute-centered spin-off titled The Farm, which aired Thursday. Although news broke way back in October that The Farm would not be coming to an NBC schedule near you anytime soon, we present to you three reasons we would have watched....

Watch A Preview Of Tomorrow's New 'Office', Starring The Schrutes

  • TVology
Would a spinoff of The Office--now nine years old and finally at its very last season--actually thrive on NBC's rapidly eroding schedule, no matter who received it? It's hard to believe that Rainn Wilson truly couldn't carry his own spinoff as the brilliant Dwight Schrute, one of the greatest characters of the modern day sitcom era. But it may just be that The Farm, the briefly-discussed sitcom planned as a spinoff from tomorrow night's standalone episode of The Office, was decidedly a product of a dead franchise, and perhaps it was best to just kill the thing and let its stars get on with their lives.

But behold! The episode entitled "The Farm," the first-ever glance at the entire Schrute clan, will still see the light of day, even if no more trips to the pasture remain. Get your preview of the upcoming episode in the preview below:
