Episode 1 & 2
Chapter One: The River's Edge / Chapter Two: A Touch of Evil

I've been meaning to check this out for awhile but I totally forgot that it had already started airing. I'm 4 weeks behind schedule, but I managed to knock out the first two today and I gotta say, this is damn good so far. I remember the Trailer dropping awhile back, but I wasn't really paying attention to the characters. Had I paid attention, then it wouldn't have been a huge surprise to learn that everyone in Riverdale comes straight from the pages of Archie's Comics. Yes, THAT Archie's Comics. Now I'm not a history buff and I don't know all that much about the comics itself. Sure, I read a handful of issues, but that was when I was in Elementary School. So, as you can guess, my knowledge of any and all past story-lines is beyond limited going into the series.

At face value, Riverdale has some subtle and not so subtle stylistic influences. On the surface what comes to mind is that a big chunk of what I've seen so far reminds me a lot of Veronica Mars (a series that I still love to this day), as well as some Mean Girls, Friday Night Lights and even Disturbing Behavior seems to have it's imprint here. You all know that the High School genre is one of my favorite genres to write personally. So I have been itching find a High School series that was and is worthy of my time and investment. Riverdale right now is hitting the marks I like. The first two episodes were fantastic. Right from the very start with the VO narration from Jughead, I was hooked. The rest of the cast that makes up Archie, Betty, and Veronica are perfectly cast. I'm definitely on board till for the rest of this season.
