Video: You may have noticed there’s a lot of love for Riverdale, the CW’s insane Archie TV show. There’s just something special about taking the ultimate family-friendly Archie characters and forcing them to deal with murder, probable incest, betrayal, statutory rape, and the most hilariously awful parents that have possibly ever been on TV. Anyway, in next week’s episode, it looks like the gang sits down together to watch the filmed execution of another human being, presumably Jason Blossom.
I gave this show a bit of crap when it was first announced because I was baffled why Archie Comics the company would make a surreal soap opera when it could adapt it’s excellent and not-insane Archie comic relaunch from a couple of years ago. I still think that would have been an excellent idea, but Riverdale is much, much too ridiculous and fun for me for me to mind any more.
