Now first off you are gonna think I started this to complain about the show RiverDale?

That is not acturally true,I rather like it it is dramatic and well different that's for sure.

Okay,Ok I was a little confused when the show first started.

Starts off with school starting after Archie has had a summer job in Construction and has had an Summer Affair with one of the Teacher's Miss Grundy who is now not an old gray haired lady but a young hot Babe?

The Lodge's are moved back into town as Old man Lodge went to Jail for Embellishing and the wife's only job she can get as a waitress at Pop's who's now an old Black guy??

Speaking of that and a diverse town Principle Weatherbee is now a Black man too and Reggie Mattel is an Asian dude.

Betty & Veronica are not both Archie crazy and after him ,well Betty kinda is but ends up getting her heart crushed about Archie's affair with Miss Grundy and move towards Jugheag who is not so much o foodie as an investagative reporter along with Betty?

Oh Veronica is still an ex-Rich spoiled girl though.

Josie McCoy is a Black girl with a Black Girl band called....you got it..."The Pussycats"
Who are Valerie Brown & Melody Valentine & are both black also.

Archie's Dad has a Construction Company and His Ex-Partner was Jughead's Dad who's now a a Drunk trying to sober-up.

Dilton Doiley is still the same guy.

Moose is still Moose but not Blonde.

There has been a Murder in town of a Ex-Footbal Jock who got Betty's sister Pregnant.

Mrs Lodge has started an Affair with Archie's Dad.

Everyone's a suspect in the the Murder?

Well Let's just say it is different than the Archie Comics Universe and it keep getting
Extremely different.

I'm wondering whether there will be a Dark Witch Twist if Sabrina is introduce now too?

Page & Cast:-

I guess we will see by how long it lasts whether people can accept this version of "The Archie Universe"?

I was a little curious about the show. I figured it would be a heavily revamped version as my understanding is they've really reconfigured the Archie comic characters in the comics as well in recent years. Not that I find that a bad thing.... I always thought Archie comics sucked. The CW show doesn't sound much like the old gang and that just might make it watchable.

I've been enjoying it far more than I expected. To me, the main strength of Archie has always been the iconic characters, while the main weakness is the unfunny cookie-cutter plots... Riverdale keeps the characters largely intact (though less silly) and ditches the dreadfully silly comedy for perfectly solid Twin Peaks/Veronica Mars style small-town-with-dark secrets soap opera. I don't think it's the greatest thing since sliced bread or anything, but yeah-- it's good.

Yes, I have'ta agree that this Hardcore Scooby-Doo like Murder Mystery along with all the other Dallas like soap drama elements have proved quite interesting so far.
I hope the keep bringing a in the characters of Riverdale and developing all the standard ones.
I guess it will be a waiting game to see if the CW will stick with it.

I think it's already been renewed for a second season. So yeah, looks like the CW will stick with it.

Well that's just Aces then.
Always worried when it comes to "The CW" as like
when it was "The WB" they cancelled a few great shows
too many times in the past.
Those shows they canned were very good and had followings.
Most of them I missed too and I'm surprised the one of
my favorites"Supernatural" has managed to last this long
because I remember they talking Cancellation at about the
4-5 season mark?
