There was a scene where Reggie (hey, Asian Reggie!) is making fun of Archie and Jughead, and when they're in the same shot, I just thought '...this is SO f'ing weird, that's Archie and Jughead on TV being taken seriously.  What the f*ck?"  It's kind of unreal.

The show is reminding me of Bates Motel, what with the taking of an iconic property and telling a different type of story with it that's not necessarily what the original was.

It is throwing me that Miss Grundy isn't older, though.  She doesn't have to be 60 or whatever, like in the books, and to be fair, I can't tell how old she is, but it feels like a Diane Lane-type would be a better fit.  Nothing against the actress playing Grundy, though.

(less than ten minutes after I wrote that, I see the result of Betty and Veronica's web search, including that picture of old Mrs Grundy who looks shockingly like the one from the comics!)

edit: Ohmygod, the credits list the "young" version of the characters as "Li'l."  That's AMAZING.
