Certainly not made for the fans of Archie Comics, but still a good show
31 January 2017 | by Kennykenny181See 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!
