This has been getting really good reviews. I hope it's going to be a hit ratings wise.

i grew up on Archie comics. Twin Peaks was also part of my childhood. combining them is kind of a scary thought, but im willing to try that out....

-- HOWEVER, this whole OC / Gossip Girl / teenage intrigue crapfest im not a fan of (and yeah im of the 90210 generation so i know how crappy it can get xD ) thats the main thing thats kept me on this side of skepticism. i've been waiting for a live action Archie rendering for a very long time, and im a bit disappointment that they didnt go for the humor angle, which is the strength of the franchise.

I liked it, it's a interesting take on some classic characters. I want to see where it goes for a little longer before I'm sold.

Doesn't look like it is Luke Perry. Probably some other actor but not sure who.

So without spoilers, this is essentially Archie meets Twin Peaks, right?

I'm actually starting to wonder if Alice and Hermione were Fred's Betty and Veronica.
