Tv Shows Based on Books: Riverdale

Admittedly, if it weren't for my workmate I probably wouldn't have been steered in the direction of Riverdale.  So I'm glad she did, thanks Skye.  I haven't read any of the comics, and I'm not sure I will, but if you have heard of Archie, Veronica, Bettie and Juggs and / or you've read the comics, check out Riverdale.
I was a little disappointed that they only release one episode of week, and as of today there are just 2 episodes out because when I sat in front of my screen yesterday morning, I swear I could have binged on it, it was that good.  Admittedly it may not be everyones cup of tea but I recommend giving it a go.  It's on Australia's Netflix if you are keen.

If you are interested in checking out the comics, it seems there are two versions.  The originals, and a remake which I'd say would tie into the Riverdale series.

I love the characers, especiually  Jugghead though he's only really in the background narrating the story, I hope we get to see more of him in the coming episodes as he's an interesting character and one I'd like to hear more about.  I also can't help but compare Veronica in Riverdale to Hayley from The Originals.  The resemblence is uncanny!

So if you have been watching this, let me know in the comments.  I'd love to hear your thoughts.
