Anyone watching this? When my wife mentioned wanting to check this out, I didn’t realize Greg Berlanti was involved (she knew) and I was picturing some god-awful 90210-alike (which made it weird she had brought it up). But two episodes in, this has been pretty darned enjoyable so far.
For those unaware, Riverdale is an adaptation of the Archie comics on CW, complete with Betty, Veronica, Jughead, Josie & the Pussycats, and more. There’s a prevailing mystery thread and a sinister undercurrent to the whole thing. Yeah, there’s been some teen angst/drama but it all works in favor of the larger story and is pretty engaging, with some decent performances so far (particularly digging Cole Sprouse as the enigmatic Jughead).
Curious to see where they are going with the story, but along for the ride, at least for the moment.
