Fans of the Archie who are excited for a television adaptation of the classic comics probably shouldn’t hold out too much hope for this series that has the typical CW touch to it.
After the death of teenager Jason Blossom (Trevor Stines), the teens in Riverdale start to explore the darker side of their small town to find out who the killer is.
As a typical CW teen drama, the teens all act too old and the drama is heightened and rampant. But, God is it addicting. There’s a strong part of me that wants to dislike the show and stop watching it, but I can’t.
The cast plays their roles fantastically – even if their characters are over the top. Enjoy the return of some ‘80s and ‘90s favorites.
Final say: Watch it if you’re looking for a good addiction. ★★★☆☆
