Tonight: “Riverdale” Series Premiere on The CW (1/26/2017)

The live teen drama “Riverdale” gets its season premiere this evening on The CW. It’s the show that I’ve discussed a couple of times when I shared the trailers and while the teaser was nothing to speak of, the extended one makes this seem like quite the curiosity of a show. Below is a photo of the cast sitting in that malt shop that they frequented in the comics and I have to say that they look pretty serious. It makes sense since the extended trailer showed a murder and some duplicity among the principle players. The cast and the folks they portray are below the photo.

K. J. Apa as Archie Andrews
Lili Reinhart as Betty Cooper
Camila Mendes as Veronica Lodge

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I think that I will give this a chance for a few episodes since I have a space on the DVR for something new and since “I Zombie” hasn’t started yet. I was on the fence about announcing this one but since I am doing a lot more television and film stuff now along with comic book related properties this makes sense. I should also admit that many years ago I greatly enjoyed the “Archie” comics digests. Generally if I was home sick or something I would peruse these instead of my conventional “Batman” and “Spider-Man” comics since it was feel good, friendly stuff that helped you feel better. So what about you readers? Are you going to give this show a chance? Let me know in the comments section below.
