‘Riverdale’ Makes The Cut

Recently, The CW said goodbye to its long-running fantasy series “The Vampire Diaries.” Although some fans were sad to say goodbye to the series, they should rejoice in the fact that there is an unlikely new sheriff in primetime town: “Riverdale”. This new show is based on the famous Archie comics, which at first made me roll my eyes, but as I began to watch, I found that it’s actually really, really entertaining.

And surprisingly more enjoyable than The Vampire Diaries ( Ian Somerhalder as Damon will forever reign supreme, though) , a show that I have always been a fan of, but seemed to lack luster in the later seasons. (@JuliePlec, why didn’t Bamon happen?).

When I first saw Riverdale, i figured that it would be just another melodramatic teen show, filled with weirdly grown-up looking high schoolers and a cliche love triangle, but what I got when I watched the show, is a surprisingly heartfelt tale about friendship, family drama and . . . . murder?

Anyway, if you haven’t watched it, please check it out:

(And if you were wondering, I ship Archie/Veronica, BTW)
