So this post is about a comic based tv show, but rather than start a new thread I'll just put it here. Just found out that there is a show called Riverdale on the CW Network that features the characters of the Archie Comics in a dark, murder mystery, noir type plot that takes place in the modern day. Did you know that?! If you aren't familiar with the Archie Comics, Riverdale is the fictional town the Archie characters inhabit. I heard about it and then happened to catch part of an episode a few days later. There was a lot of sexual content (as far as staying within the limits of Network free TV) and a fair amount of skin (same thing, within TV limits) on the episode I saw. This reminds me that when I was in my local comic shop about a year ago, actually the last time I was there, and I asked the owner what was selling well he mentioned Archie having a resurgence. I checked just now and, not really a surprise here, but there is a line of comics called Riverdale put out by Archies publisher. Also, Josie and the Pussycats are in those comics, not sure about the TV show; I didn't see them.
No, I am not going to be watching the show anymore. Not passing judgment; it's just not for me.
At first all this took me by surprise, but I guess if the publishers can do an Archie/Punisher crossover
, they can stretch out and go down this road also!
