News & Interviews for Riverdale: Season 1
Riverdale, an enjoyable and moody teen series for adults who love teen series, a group of which I consider myself a member, is a fascinating splash in the ongoing remake deluge.
Riverdale can be overwrought at times and even too transparently politically correct at others. But it's also crisply entertaining and particularly well-cast with respect to the pivotal roles.
[It's] a lot of fun, but what I like most so far is that Betty's much more than a ponytail, Veronica's not nearly as spoiled as I remember, and together they're navigating friendship and romantic rivalry in what I'd like to think are 21st century ways.
Well done, but formulaic. Nevertheless, a long run seems assured.
The abundance of intrigue and the generally likeable, layered characters make it worth checking out.
