Though Well-Intended, Riverdale Does Hedwig A Serious Disservice

Finally, welcome back to The CW's Riverdale, and, oh, and they're singing again. While it's debatable as to if every character on the show has gone insane, "spontaneous song" is the name of the game in this week's musical spectacular.
