Also, this being comic-based, can it get it's own forum now?
Riverdale #1 Covers
Some of those look show-related, others look they could be variant covers of the regular Archie series.
Really looking foward to this. Who's the Showrunner?
In my opinion, Aguirre-Sacasa showed with Afterlife with Archie that he know how to give an unusual edge to these characters while keeping their essences and get an extraordinarly good story, which means there's no way I'm not giving this show a chance but I'm going to be honest as well: this trailer looks like put every corny CW drama cliché on an overcooked package.
This show seems to have nothing to do with the comics I grew up on.
I am looking forward to the show. The incorporation of Waid's run and elements of Twin Peaks has my interest locked.
I'm looking forward to this like crazy, but they're going to need to step up their promo game. It annoyed me enough that they didn't drop a trailer during the upfronts in May or during SDCC, now they finally give us a promo, and it's a bunch of quick cuts, no dialogue, no indication that this is comic-based and "From the network that brought you one show that ended four years ago and another that's just about to end". Obviously, if this is Archie Meets Twin Peaks, there will be a soap aspect, but... the biggest shows on the network are comic-based and from Greg Berlanti. Play that up. The creator of this show worked on Supergirl last season for **** sake. I just really hope this isn't the only promo they use leading up to the premiere.
Oh, and also... sub-forum please?
Also, delightful pics. Thanks for posting!
Looks like a typical CW show
Sounds like a basic comment usually directed at a CW show.
True, but the trailer looked pretty typical, too.
Gonna give it a chance, though. It could be good.
While I am somewhat interested in this show, telling me it's from the same network as Gossip girls tampers that down a bit. I am 50-50 watching this now(only thing really going for it is I don't have any other shows to watch Thursdays besides Superstore)
Well I don't consider the CW being a knock against it. I record 2 hours off the CW almost every night. And Gossip Girl was 4 years ago.
Seems to be more based on the Archie horror titles like Afterlife with Archie and Archie Horror.
Yeah but if Gossip Girls is the best thing they can compare it to I am not sure that is a ringing endorsement. I always view the stations love for GG as the downfall of the network
GG wasn't the downfall of ****. Series like iZombie and The 100 say hello.
Gossip Girl helped put TheCW on peoples radar. It became awful but it got people talking and TheCW plenty of attention.
GG was one of the first shows to get sub 2M viewers and still get renewed. It basically was the benchmark for how badly can a show rate and still get renewed for the CW(all because the person who ran the station liked the fact it's created a buzz on meaningless blogs)
By the way here is an example of how idiotic the CW was with GG.
In 2011-12 it was the 188th rated show out of 195 shows but that was good enough for the CW to renew it
Riverdale: Molly Ringwald Is Archie's Mom
Also, seriously, sub-forum now??? I mean, hell, if that Agents of SHIELD spinoff that didn't make the cut twice over can have one...
Her in this arguably sounds more promising than her appearing in Jem and the Holograms.
Looks like the attractive, yet non-threatening, racially diverse cast of a CW show.
Archie and the gang as a comedy might work. I don't see this gritty drama thing working out for such classic comic characters.
