Im not a massive comic book fan but I am loving the new The CW/Netflix Original Series called Riverdale. Its (very) loosely based on the Archie comics and the gangs all there – Archie, Jughead, Veronica, Betty etc. If you need a clincher, Luke Perry is in the cast as Archies dad. However, the series is more of an angsty teen drama (The CW totally own this space) than a squeaky-clean narrative.
Season 1 starts with the disappearance/death/murder of Riverdale Highs star quarterback Jason Blossom. Jughead narrates the story and we learn more about the murder and the main characters with each passing episode.
Riverdale would be totally binge-worthy, but Netflix are drip feeding fans with the release of a new episode every Friday. Not happy Jan. At the time of writing, 3 episodes are available and I spend the week counting down to Friday night.
Love this one!
