I'm really enjoying this show. It's a sort of Twin Peaks lite. Are there any other fans?

Yes, I can't make my mind up about it, and I don't think Jason is/was as good looking as they make out blush

LadyDeadpool Thu 09-Mar-17 21:49:36

Yes! Loved the slut shaming episode and Archie is serious eye candy.

Jason is a bit odd looking. I don't know if part of it is the slightly too orange dye they've used.
I'm looking forward to today's episode, apparently we find out why Jughead's homeless and where he's been living.

Me, I love it! I loved Josie and the pussycats singing I Feel Love.
Agree about Jason, not that good looking. And agree about Archie 😍

Me! I love it! I spent my childhood reading the comics so it's all very exciting.
DH is very much a redhead and he gets the rage over all the fake red hair. It's funny to watch.
I love jughead

I'm watching it with half an eye while doing household chores. It's entertaining enough but I don't think any of the boys are particularly gorgeous and I doubt 16 year old me would either.

It is utter tripe, but I'm really enjoying it.grin

However, if you want teenage noir, you can't beat Veronica Mars...

Utter tripe but I'm loving it. I read the comics growing up so seeing the dark version is great fun. I would have seriously fancied Jughead (would take his dad these days) but all the rest are meh.

Southernc0mfortmirror Fri 10-Mar-17 14:22:18

Oh yes, 15 year old me would have loved Jughead...Luke Perry's looking ok though and it's nice to see Skeet Ulrich again.

That's how I know I'm old, fancying the dads and not the teenssmile

I'm not convinced about it. Archie is an incredibly annoying central character. I do like the supportive friendship between Veronica and Betty. As a pp says, it's no season one Veronica Mars, however much it wants to be.

I am, I love it! Im also a secret addict of Pretty Little Liars and Gossip Girls - the three shows are so alike it's weird.

I've enjoyed it but don't like guitar boy or understand the reaction to him shagging his teacher.

Southernc0mfortmirror Fri 17-Mar-17 13:40:30

Archie is a bit underwritten. One of the complaints I've read is that Betty, Jughead and Veronica all have much more serious plot lines while Archie's main storyline has been balancing two extracurricular activities, while an actual serious story of being sexually abused by a teacher was settled very quickly.

Cosmicglitterpug Fri 17-Mar-17 14:29:58

I m really into it now. Archie is hot, but Jughead is my favourite. It's very... 'sexy'. But I like the fact they talk about feminism and being a friend to each other. I think Molly Wingwald is going to be in it.

Xmasfairy86 Fri 17-Mar-17 14:37:04

Loving it!

Xmasfairy86 Fri 17-Mar-17 14:37:32

Binge watched the first 5 then have had to wait a week from then on which sucks!!

Cosmicglitterpug Fri 17-Mar-17 14:38:35

I hate having to wait.

TimTamTerrier Fri 17-Mar-17 14:43:47

I'm completely hooked. Unfortunately something modem-y has decided that we have all moved to the US, and Riverdale isn't available on Netflix over there. So I haven't seen the two most recent episodes.

I've tried resetting everything, but still can't move myself back to Ireland, which is a bit of a bitch.

Thisrabbitthatrabbit Fri 17-Mar-17 15:24:18

I'm really enjoying it. Was a bit shocked when I realised how young they are all supposed to be though.

Xmasfairy86 Sat 18-Mar-17 00:10:08

Didn't have a new episode today?! Did I break Netflix 😱😱

DeepfriedPizza Sat 18-Mar-17 05:59:28

It's on hiatus until 31st March due to March Madness which is basketball something or other.

Xmasfairy86 Sat 18-Mar-17 07:23:23

Thanks! Got all excited remembering it was Friday and then couldn't find it! Settled for Bates Motel in the end

winchesterfan Fri 31-Mar-17 17:18:33

It's back on Netflix today!

TimTamTerrier Fri 31-Mar-17 17:29:20

Yay. And my router has returned from its imaginary holiday to the US, so I've caught up on the Riverdale episodes that I missed.
