Positive reviews keep rolling in. IGN Verdict: 8.5

An eerie, sharply-executed pilot gets Riverdale off to a strong start. A murder mystery ignites all sorts of drama inside a small town, turning colorful Archie comic characters into intriguing people with dark secrets. Visually, it's a moody and at times surreal feast for the eyes.

The plot peels back layers of this twisted old town one at a time, and while it can feel a tad strange watching such liberties being taken with classic characters, it's all done with confidence and intent. It's as if the showmakers wore a devilish smile while crafting this show, knowing the audience would also be wearing one by the time the credits roll.

I never read any Archie, but the fact Sabrina is supposed to appear in the season finale peaks my interest.

Good thing this show seems to be good, because I would watch it all even if it was the worst piece of entertainment on television.

Every review I've read so far, even the one negative one I've seen, praises Betty and Veronica and their dynamic as the heart of the show. Despite how things may appear, it looks like the show happens around Archie rather than through him.

Really nice review from the Philadelphia Inquirer

Riverdale's a lot of fun, but what I like most so far is that Betty's much more than a ponytail, Veronica's not nearly as spoiled as I remember, and together they're navigating friendship and romantic rivalry in what I'd like to think are 21st century ways. Plus, Ashleigh Murray is dynamite as Josie McCoy, the strong-willed center of -- wait for it -- Josie and the Pussycats.

Also, some absolutely stunning pics of Camila Mendes (Veronica Lodge). Can't get over how lovely she is, and a brilliant actress at that.

I'm super behind on the main series, so I'll definitely be taking advantage of this. Thanks

What really strikes me in those pics Fuu posted is this show's moody anachronistic style. So close! Can't wait to finally see the premiere.

I have absolutely no knowledge of anything related to Archie other than looking at the covers when I was in line at the grocery store as a kid. After watching the previews I'm super confused as this does not seem at all like what I imagined the Archie comics were about.

Grew up reading these every week, have a ton dating back to the 60s when my uncle read them. Just watched the trailer recently and I really hope this doesn't flop as all I ever wanted as a kid was a good Archie show/movie.

With that said, how can they not include Mr. Lodge? :(

This is an Alternate World for Archie. They've been doing that in the comics, starting with the series where they were adults dealing with real adult shit, and the horror series in which Archie and the gang are caught in the Zombie Apocalypse.

If you snub your nose at CW shows for the drama and pretty young adults i'm guessing you won't like this either. Although it does seem like some people might have come around since the super hero shows aren't exactly exempt from your usual CW-ness.

Yes! Have you read Afterlife with Archie or The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina? If not, those should be your next purchases. Archie Comics have really turned me into a huge fan with their recent work. Hoping Riverdale sends me over the edge.

Nice, my copy of Archie and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina should be here tomorrow.

Sort of tempted to buy some stuff off the Archie site since they have the 40% off promo. How's the shipping price on that site?

Edit: Ended up getting Afterlife with Archie, Jughead, Archie #2, and Road to Riverdale for $42 after shipping. Not bad.

I've watched all the clips.

- Veronica's first time meeting Archie and Betty is where the show is starting
- Archie's mom is MIA. Maybe she and Fred got divorced.
- Mr. Lodge is in jail for what I assume might be money laundering.
- Miss Grundy is hot and she's banging Archie???Wtf?
- Every clip with Jughead doesn't involve him stuffing his face. Where's Jughead "The Human Bottomless Pit" Jones?
- Are Hot Dog, Mr. Weatherbee, and Chuck even in the show?

Or really anyone. Dude is always hitting on girls and dating them.

Which Veronica also dates other people so I guess it's kind of an open thing. Yet they both get jealous. Same with Betty sort of.

Basically Archie seems kind of like a dick and I'm shocked the 2 core girls put up with it.

New Archie on the new comic and that whole thing is much better IMO

Yeah, the on-and-off polyamorous-ish relationship between Archie, Betty, and Veronica is pretty dated.
I've always been #TeamBetty, since Veronica just dated whoever treated her like a queen.
