Saturated colors and a somewhat uneasy setting is the concurrent theme of Riverdale – CW’s adaptation of the popular Archie Comics. This theme could have gone awfully wrong but it actually turns out to be beautifully crafted with right dose of teen drama and mystery.

From the three episodes released till now, we see plenty of drama between the lead characters – a delightful take on the character dynamics from the source material. The show also takes major liberties with the 75-year-old popular characters, which has resulted in constant grumbles from purists online.

Riverdale is a smart and sexy take on a potential heavy drama, with much going on underneath than you initially realize. It is a fresh act, blending teen soap, biting humour, murder mystery with a beloved franchise. The show impresses with its take on these characters with relatively unknown faces in the lead cast, but with a lot of potential.

Credits: Archie Comics

 

KJ Apa has been cast as Archie Andrews, a conflicted and boyish sophomore, who is the protagonist of the show. Archie is working on his football while also honing his singing skills.

Camilla Mendes as the intelligent and confident Veronica Lodge, a silver-tongued high school sophomore who returns to Riverdale from New York, eager to reinvent herself, does justice to her role. Lili Reinhart portrays the perfect and sweet girl – Betty Cooper, who completes the trio of the Archie-Betty-Veronica love triangle, much like the comics. Cole Sprouse is fan favourite Jughead Jones, Archie’s friend and narrator of the story. Madeline Petsch has been cast as the bimbette Cheryl Blossom.

Below this point, there will be mild spoiler for the plot. So SPOILER ALERT!

Much like the comics and the cartoon, the series deals with a mystery in the small town of Riverdale. Jason Blossom is missing and later his body is found in the river, which brings to the fore – a case of homicide. Archie Andrews, who is having an affair with his music teacher, happens to find himself pretty close to the scene of the crime and is torn apart from this fact.

Meanwhile, Betty has a crush on longtime friend and neighbor Archie but her plans go awry when Veronica Lodge, a sharp-tongued girl comes between this equation.

Betty and Veronica have a complex relationship – archrivals or BFF, but one is common between them-  they are fed up with Cheryl Blossom. Cheryl remains a manipulative and cold person even when she has lost her twin brother. Add to that the case of Betty’s institutionalized sister – Polly and you get a perfect plot for a mystery.

Riverdale hails from Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios.

Episode 4 releases on February 16th, 2017. Watch the promo for the 4th episode here:

    but what if you added a title to maybe get
    a person’s attention? I mean Riverdale – A smart take on Archie Comics –
    The Noob Knows is kinda vanilla. You might glance at Yahoo’s home
    page and see how they create news titles to grab people to click.
    You might try adding a video or a picture or two to grab people excited about what you’ve written. In my
    opinion, it would bring your website a little bit more interesting.

    I do believe that you should write more on this issue, it might
    not be a taboo subject but generally people do not speak about
