Trivia

K.J. Apa said that for all the scenes where he's eating junk food with his friends at a diner and eating burgers, he has a bucket just off camera where he spits out all the food after taking a bite for the camera shot. This is because while filming the show, he's on a very strict diet to maintain his six-pack abs for his shirtless scenes. Apa said that to make up for it, he eats what he wants in the break between filming two seasons of the show. See more »

Quotes

Betty Cooper: I'm not gonna ask what you did with Veronica at Cheryl's. I'm asking you now, right now, if you love me, Archie, or even like me?
Archie Andrews: Of course I love you, Betty. But I can't give you the answer you want.
Betty Cooper: Why?
Archie Andrews: You are so perfect. I've never been good enough for you. I'll never be good enough for you.

HOW THIS SHOW HAS SUCH HIGH RATING?
6 October 2018 | by pavlovicmninaSee all my reviews

Rating above 7 for this?? I don't mind dark tones or moving from comics, but characters are the worst - Betty is spineless and boring and has nothing similar to great character in comics, Jughead is just passive and pessimistic, and it seems that the most important thing about Archie is his looks. it's so full of stereotypes, like Betty's gay best friend drooling over Archie and Betty's mother being one-dimensional control freak. Also, what's up with the romance with a teacher?? Seriously! Just read comics, forget about this disaster, it's super annoying.
