A completely accurate and true rendering of the original Archie comics with a level of subtlety and complexity not seen since Mad Men.

This show is the best kind of cheese/dark teenage drama that I could ask for!

I am a fan of the Archie comics so my hopes for the show weren't terribly high, before I realized it, I was on episode 5 and I was totally hooked.

I love that they took Archie and the gang and put a modern twist on them, Riverdale is not a place that is all sunshine and rainbows but instead a town full of secrets, secrets I can't wait to solve.

Adapted for TV by the CCO of Archie Comics, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa - who also writes two of their horror series, Afterlife with Archie and The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, this television adaptation of the gang in Riverdale is wholesome and spooky at the same time. Growing up reading the Jughead and Betty and Veronica comics, I was pleased with what they brought to the screen for the CW. If you were a fan, or have picked up some of the new series Archie Comics have been doing in the past couple of years, this is highly recommended.

Exciting murder mystery show based off of comics where 4 kids in the town of Riverdale are left to find out who killed Jason Blossom.  The 4 main characters try to figure out who the murderer is while dealing with the struggles of high school and putting up with the queen bee Cheryl, who happens to be Jason's twin.  The story is told from the perspective of Jughead Jones played by Cole Sprouse who is an aspiring writer narrating the occurrences inside Riverdale.  In a small town like Riverdale, there are not too many people to suspect but everyone knows everyone and secrets have a way of getting out.

This is an amazing adaptation of the classic comic book characters! Don't look for goofy antics here, though. This is serious business. The show is a murder mystery, each episode building on the last until many ugly secrets are exposed and the killer is found. The season ends off on a cliffhanger for season 2. If you liked Twin Peaks or Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency, you'll like Riverdale.

An awesome series. I enjoyed the first season and am eagerly looking forward to season two

Archie comics meets crime and mystery! I was pleasantly surprised by this show - I'm so glad it ended up being amazing. Season one was way too short for my new addiction! The cast is amazing - and no one is surprised that Cole Sprouse as Jughead is an absolute favorite.
