Riverdale - On Netflix now

I watched the first episode, it's terrible but it's prime guilty pleasure material. New episodes get uploaded every Friday.

I heard about this for the first time earlier today. The teen drama will be predictably tedious but the mystery hook has me interested so I'll be giving it a go.

BBUKAUSFAN 03-02-2017 08:45 AM

This show gives me GLUE vibes for some reason.

Firewire 05-02-2017 01:00 AM

New series based on the Archie Comics

Synopsis from Netflix: While navigating the troubled waters of sex, romance, school and family, teen Archie and his gang become entangled in a dark Riverdale mystery.

I watched the first two episodes and really enjoyed it. It's doing well critically, too, with a score of 86% on Rotten Tomatoes.

It has an 80s feel to it, even though it's set in the present day.

Here for the 80s feel. It's one of the things I loved about Stranger Things :flutter:

Jeol 05-02-2017 01:17 AM

Veronica :love:

Firewire 05-02-2017 01:18 AM

Jonathan you lazy bitch!

MB. 05-02-2017 02:02 AM

(I do intend to watch this eventually, I didn't just enter this thread to call Jonathan names)

Firewire 05-02-2017 02:04 AM

Well I didn't ****ing see it DID I

Ross. 05-02-2017 02:05 AM

typical Jonathan trying to steal the limelight

Firewire 05-02-2017 02:08 AM

Ugh just do one

Ross. 05-02-2017 02:09 AM

No I want to discuss the show so you do one

Firewire 05-02-2017 02:09 AM

KJ Apa is fit as **** btw

Tom4784 05-02-2017 02:30 AM

Second episode was decent, I think they need to make it more unique though, outside of the aesthetic it's pretty much the same as every teen drama ever made.

Stereotypical gay best friend makes me want to die as does Cole Sprouse's painfully typical edgy outsider/writer character.

Firewire 05-02-2017 02:33 AM

The gay character is poorly written which is a let down

Amy Jade 05-02-2017 02:35 AM

They need to hurry up and add the best Archie character in. Miss Sabrina Spellman.

Infact move the Spellman clan in asap

MB. 08-02-2017 10:07 PM

I watched the first two episodes and they were nice enough

MB. 08-02-2017 10:10 PM

Anyway today I learned that one of the characters is called Alice Cooper

Natalie. 21-02-2017 09:54 PM

Seen 3 episodes so far, enjoying it more than I though I would

MB. 25-02-2017 02:41 PM

This is... still good (helpful, I know)

I wonder how long they'll drag out The Gay One's storyline with the Serpent bloke only for absolutely nothing to happen

Tom4784 25-02-2017 02:51 PM

It's getting better with each episode especially in the ones like the latest episode which focus more on the mystery at hand then the rather boring soapy stuff.

They need to overhaul Kevin's character though, it's annoying how much of a typical gay best friend he is. The other characters are improving although I could do without the Jughead narrations. Also the dialogue and it's insistence to references to the 50's feels a bit awkward, like I get why they do it but it doesn't feel very authentic to the fact that they are teenagers, not Diablo Cody characters.

:cheer2: best news wooo!

Tom4784 10-03-2017 08:33 PM

It's getting better with each episode, it's definitely hitting it's stride. Kevin's stereotypical ass needs to disappear though.

Tom4784 07-04-2017 11:38 PM

This show is way better than it has the right to be.

Cheryl is an absolute scream.

Natalie. 08-04-2017 06:59 AM

It gets better each week

Denver 26-04-2017 10:15 AM

The character of Reggie has been recast

andybigbro 29-04-2017 12:50 AM

Just started watching this. I'm enjoying it so far :)

Saph 29-04-2017 01:18 AM

got halfway through ep 1 and gave up

Tom4784 29-04-2017 02:38 AM

It takes a few episodes for it to get going, the first two or three are pretty painful because the focus is on the teen drama rather than the murder mystery aspect but once it gets that out of it's system it becomes quite compelling.

Denver 05-05-2017 11:50 AM

Mess at the killer being


His dad

Tom4784 14-05-2017 11:03 PM

The last episode was pretty decent but I think they could have done more with the reveal and focused less on set up for next series.

Reggie has also been recast for S2. He'll now be played by Charles Menton (Mr. Wu from AHS: Hotel)

Jason. 16-06-2017 01:37 AM

Finished watching this yesterday.

I thought it was alright, nothing special, but decent enough. I was expecting a bit more from it though, especially with the reveal like Dezzy mentioned. Really good characters though.

andybigbro 16-06-2017 02:09 AM

I loved it. The cast really make it great.
Lreally looking forward to season 2.
