RIVERDALE (2017 – )

riverdale 2

Creator:  Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa

Cast: K.J. Apa, Lili Reinhart, Camila Mendes

In a small town life is almost perfect at Riverdale until a teenager disappears plus Riverdale has a facade well a little strange even weird but wholesome to a certain extant.

Here is the new high school noir from the Archie comic books franchise. It is steamy, weird a little gossip in there as well as wholesome notes much but it is there it fells like twin peaks. The familiar characters are back, as are landmarks like Pop’s Chock’lit Shoppe. On the inside the town fells like this squeaky clean that is  hiding decay, corruption and secrets.

Jason Blossom (Trevor Stines), who disappeared while going out  in the woods with his girl twin sister Cheryl (Madelaine Petsch). Archie (K. J. Apa) — an aspiring musician with six-pack abs — witnessed a key bit of evidence but can’t talk because of the circumstances (see the series). Ms. Grundy (Sarah Habel), now a sultry knockout.  Veronica Lodge (Camila Mendes), the super hot rich girl, is coming  from Manhattan whose father is in jail for fraud. Kevin Keller (Casey Cott), a gay student. Well you have at least to put in the gay student now days it is the hip thing to do. Then you have the mayor, the principal and the girl group Josie and the Pussycats which I love the great name for an  all African-American band. The malt shop is still in business, but the drive-in is closing down. If you have not guess yet the story has been reinvented. It has also a feel of blue velvet here as well. It is fine series here especially for teenagers who will talk about it after school or on their cell phone or social networks. The all thing works here to the costume, the design, even the casting stand out. Have fun with this one and enjoy it for what it is .
