    I grew up in a town where overcast was a usual feature. Plenty of rain. I do not remember the inside of buildings be oddly gray, like a smoke machine is running the entire time. :funny:

    On another note, why was Josie playing a guitar? There didn't seem to be one playing in the song. :hehe:

    We mustn't be getting this on Canadian TV, because it's being added weekly to our Netflix and it's listed as a Netflix original series.

    Anyway, as a Twin peaks fan I enjoyed it quite a bit. For not getting a lot of screen time, Jughead stole the show and I look forward to seeing more of him.

    Archiekins! Loved hearing that. Betty and especially Veronica were the MVPs.

    And yeah they're totally hinting incest with the Blossom twins. :funny:

    I thought the same thing! :lmao:

    Totally agree on the MVPs. :highfive:

    My brother and I were trying to figure out what else it could be other then incest. So yeah, felt more then just a hint.

    Others have already said, but what high school were you going to? A lot of guys had em at my high school.

    Side note: Tom Holland has one and he's playing 15/16 year old Peter Parker :shrug:

    Eh, to be fair Tom Holland is also in training to play a superhero. But yeah, plenty of kids who looked "older" for me as well. Hell I remember kids who looked like 20 year old athletes in middle school.

    I think it's funny that people make out the Archie actor to be so old looking. I was shocked to find out he's only 19.

    If that's accurate.

    Jughead might be the oldest of the main cast and he still reads young to me.

    Yep....usually after 1 full year in a sport, they are eligible to get a varsity jacket.

    I gave it a 7/10...

    I enjoyed the premiere, but found it lacking in depth. You can't compare the series to Twin Peaks and then leave it as shallow as they did. So, I'm hoping that that will grow as the season goes along. I will give it the full Season 1 before making a judgment for sure... :)

    At my high school, you could buy "letterman's jackets" that were just generic school merchandise, so maybe that's how it is at Riverdale High too.

    So I watched this thinking it was going to be garbage but I watched it till the end and I enjoyed it. How were the ratings so low for this?

    Probably several different things...1. weird promotion, LOTS OF PROMOTION, but probably to the wrong audience. As some have stated on the ratings thread, advertising it using 2 shows that are either long gone from the CW, or dead man walking out the door this season was not the best way to channel the viewership of the CW today which is very much comicbook based, with a sprinkle of Glee inserted.... ;) So, really they should have promoted it in that vein.

    2. Not a strong lead in....Supernatural may be coming back, and may be the longest running show on the CW, it is still on out of loyalty, not necessarily top ratings.

    This was really well shot. Visually it looked really great, which was a surprise for a CW series.

    Why does Miss Grundy look 5 years older than Betty and Veronica?

    She is apparently 34. She has a good 14 years on Betty and Veronica.

    I know they went for a younger Grundy just so they could have their forced, creepy, ''edgy" student -teacher romance stuff, but come on...
