Trivia

K.J. Apa said that he does not mind being shirtless and showing off his abs on the show because that is how the character is written in the script. He said, "Someone has to have abs on the show. It's always strange to play a sex object. But when I read the script, it was how they were taking it. So I was prepared for that, and I knew that people were going to take it like that as well. But yeah, it is strange. I don't think it's anything I'm ever going to get used to. As soon as you get used to becoming a sex object, that can be dangerous. When people look at you as a sex object, that's not how you're defined. There's more to Archie than abs and his body and getting with girls. He's a humanized character, and people should see past that, but initially, at first glance, people are going to have that first impression of sex object." See more »

Certainly not made for the fans of Archie Comics, but still a good show
31 January 2017 | by See all my reviews

A lot of the reviews on here seemed to be from Archie fans, so I thought I'd share my perspective; I've only ever read a couple of the comics.

From what I saw in the first episode, this series seems promising. Riverdale seems to be superior to other shows from the CW in a number of aspects. The first thing I noticed was decent cinematography, the shots were beautiful but not in your face. The performances also seemed to be consistently good throughout the cast, with Lili Reinhart and Luke Perry (surprisingly) being the standouts from the episode. The story line is intriguing, and the dialogue is a little better than some other CW shows. However the show does exhibit a fair amount of clinches and a sense of predictability. All in all, Riverdale seems promising and I'm definitely looking forward to the next episode!
