With every season it’s getting worse and worse.
There is a lot to like about Riverdale, but it may not be right for the most loyal fans of the Archie comics. There are major changes here as Archie is updated to current American culture. Still, the core relationships ring true. The cast is outstanding with some familiar faces among the parents. The central focus of season 1 is a murder mystery. Although somewhat unexpected for Archie and the gang, the story effectively introduces the characters and relationships while establishing a Riverdale universe that will serve the series well for many seasons to come if renewal beyond season 2 occurs. So sit back and enjoy high school life with twists and turns in a town called Riverdale that provides a mysterious and provocative setting.
Don’t Look For Comics In Riverdale
The Archie Comics that originated in the 1940s were rated “G” for Goofy. Maybe not as goofy as “Scooby Doo”, but it was a wholesome (you might say “square”) universe. A version of “Archie” was even in bubble gum wrappers for a couple of years.
The universe of “Riverdale” is darker, promising that if you look closer, you can see the “shadows underneath”. Sounds like “Twin Peaks”.
The show features the characters we expect, but they are multi-dimensional, with problems and desires and secrets. Archie sees himself as flawed, but he wants to make music his life and vocation. Betty (his best friend) sees herself as inadequate, but she wants Archie to be more than a friend. Veronica (who just moved to Riverdale), sees herself as plagued by family history and publicity, but she wants to become a better person.
The show is very well cast. Each actor inhabits his character.
In the first episode, various secrets are alluded to, promising even more complications and conflicts than were revealed in the first installment.
Many standard themes of teen dramas are also part of this show, which may make it feel like home for some viewers. Others may grow weary of the usual tropes: the mean head cheerleader, the gay best friend, the closeted gay jock, the handsome athletic main character, the first day at the new school for the outsider. “Glee” explored many of them. And some of them date back to the forties, when Andy Hardy (the original inspiration for Archie comics) entertained us all with his teenage dramas. The show embraces them and even makes fun of them.
The first episode moves quickly, but not so quickly that viewers cannot follow. The foundation is in place for later episodes that can deliver a deliciously dark story that will entertain and allow its actors to blossom in their roles.
Literally what the hell is this show & how had it been renewed for so many seasons with how absurd the writing is. The writers must’ve been taking the “good stuff” in their room and just wrote whatever nonsense came out of their heads during their bender.
