Riverdale is a popular show loosely based on Archie comics that tells about the adventures of a group of four best friends. Three of its seasons have been released on Netflix and the fourth is still airing on T.V.. Taking place in a small, crime-filled town called Riverdale, hence the show’s name, this show is filled with drama and mysteries that keep viewers hooked.
The show, “Riverdale,” has four main characters referred to as the “Core Four.” They consist of Betty Cooper, the good girl and detective, Veronica Lodge, the spoiled rich girl going nice, Archie Andrews, the athletic boy next door, and Jughead Jones, the funny, loner weirdo. These characters are played by Lili Reinhart, Camila Mendes, KJ Apa, and Cole Sprouse. Of course, there are other characters including Kevin Keller (played by Casey Cott), Cheryl Blossom played by Madelaine Petsch, Ethel Muggs played by Shannon Purser, and everyone’s parents. Most of the characters are in high school and deal with normal teen problems like relationships and grades, however, along with these, the Core Four take on bigger problems. For instance, in season one alone, they take it upon themselves to solve the mystery behind Jason Blossom’s death, a classmate who had supposedly drowned that summer.
I believe that Riverdale was a very good show. It was full of action and suspense. For the few moments that we didn’t have this, we were entertained by the drama between the friends themselves. Despite all this amazing stuff in season one, the later seasons aren’t that good. I feel like the Riverdale writers threw out all the good stuff in season one, making the show absolute nonsense.
I would recommend the first season to people who like mysteries and drama, the rest of the seasons, however, aren’t that good unless you are bored and looking for some entertainment or you are seeking to follow the Core Four to the end.
