It does, however, embrace the same ideology and hope for the future that inspired a generation of dreamers and doers.

Image Source: The CW Riverdale is loaded with the best young talent Hollywood has to offer, but the parental figures are nothing to sneeze at, either. Of course they're all wildly attractive, but they're also all veteran actors. Luke Perry, aka Fred Andrews, is a TV legend thanks to Beverly Hills, 90210. Mädchen Amick, aka Alice Cooper, got her start on Twin Peaks. But what about Fp Jones? You know that face from somewhere. Of course you do - he's played by the forever sexy Skeet Ulrich. Ulrich broke onto the scene in the late '90s with roles in teen hits like The Craft and Boys. It was his portrayal of Billy Loomis in the original Scream, however, that solidified his place in pop culture history.

We look to the best and brightest of television criticism and see what they have to say.
A few weeks ago, I realized that I hadn’t been living my best possible Netflix life.
