I’m sure most of you would have heard of the new show, Riverdale. Just to give you a little background on what the show is about, the show is based on the age-old Archie comics but with a mysterious twist as it starts off with someone’s murder.

Plot Summary:

Archie Andrews starts the school year with the world weighing on his shoulders. He’s he wants to pursue a future in the music business, but his recently ended clandestine relationship with the music teacher has left him without a mentor, and his friendship with Jughead Jones is in a bad place. Things look like they might be turning around when Veronica Lodge, a new girl, arrives. Despite the instant chemistry, Veronica is hesitant to risk a friendship with Betty — who has a crush on Archie — to pursue anything. Amidst all the small-town banality lurks a mystery: the recent tragic death of Jason Blossom, the twin brother of beautiful and popular troublemaker, Cheryl.

IMDb Rating:  



Archie comics was literally my childhood/teenage days. I was in love with the characters and just the overall idea of the bond that was shared between all the characters. When I heard about Riverdale, I was pretty excited to see what the show had in store for me. I really appreciate the mysterious twist that was added to the lives of the characters because that instantly intensified the show which made it more interesting. 😉

When it comes to character portrayal, I think they’ve done a great job with selecting the cast members because all of them fit the characters’ personality perfectly! It feels as if the characters from the comic book have come to life. To be honest, every episode has an intense scene that just makes you want to watch more. I don’t want to spoil anything for those of you who haven’t watched the show yet. But! If you’re looking for a show that’s a mix of romance, mystery, and friendship, then this is the perfect show for you. 😀

    Never heard of this series before.. It seems a bit like Glee, minus the singing? I think I could really like this as well!

      You should definitely watch Riverdale! To be honest, it’s not at all like Glee. It’s a lot more mysterious and intense! I hope you enjoy it! 😀

    I started this a few days ago and I’m completely hooked. It’s like a mix between Veronica Mars and Gossip Girl! Also, I love how they also incorporated Josie and the Pussycats in there too! The casting is great, especially for Veronica. I also really love Jughead 😉

  6. I love Riverdale! I’m a Buggerhead (shipping Betty and Jug and I couldn’t get enough of Cole Sprouse!, OMG). Characterization, like you said, was perfect. Can’t wait for Season 2!

    I used to read and collect Archie Comics when I was younger. I’ve got about a hundred of them, I was able to collect until I was in College, and that was about 16 years ago). In the comics, I enjoyed Jughead and Ethel’s cat-and-dog chase/relationship, LOL!

      Awww, I’m so glad that you were an Archie comics fan. Hahaha!
