Default 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.

Default Riverdale

New series based on the Archie Comics

Developed by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and executive produced by Greg Berlanti.

Airs on The CW in the US and then one day later on Netflix here. It started on Jan 26th so only two episodes have aired so far.

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

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.

The gay character is poorly written which is a let down

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

Spoiler:


Infact move the Spellman clan in asap

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

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.
