Hello, people of the internet!
So, Riverdale. CW has outdone itself yet again, with this amazing mystery/romance TV show, based on the ever-popular Archie’s comics.
Though the show itself has no relation to Archie’s, it has the same characters and setting. It follows Archie Andrews, an average teenage boy going to Riverdale High. He loves music, and is pretty awesome at guitar – and singing.
His best friend, Jughead Jones (played by COLE SPROUSE OH MY LORD), isn’t short of his own problems, either. I can’t really say much without giving stuff away – let’s just say that he has family issues.
His other best friend, Betty Cooper, starts off by having a hopeless crush on Archie. But she’s also an amazing journalist, and works hard to make the school newspaper – the Blue and Gold – a success.
And then Veronica Lodge, the daughter of the convict Hiram Lodge, moves into town. Being used to lavish mansions and luxuries, she takes some time settling in.
The show opens to the summer after the death of Jason Blossom, the son and heir of one of the most influential families in Riverdale. On the morning of the Fourth of July, Jason went for a boat ride with his sister Cheryl. Later on in the day, Dilton Doiley’s boy scouts found Cheryl sitting all by herself on a rock, by the river’s edge. The boat, and Jason Blossom, were nowhere to be seen.
It’s a highly mysterious show, with dark themes of violence, murder, and romance. I would recommend it to 14+ people, but then again, it depends on the person. I loved the show, even though it has zero relation to Archie’s comics.
