You mean that new CW teen show? Yes. Hear us out on this one.
It’s smarter than the average teen show. It’s not full of the old Gossip Girl and 90210 superficial, clique-y vibes. The characters seem more real and are pretty self-aware of their sometimes ridiculous antics.
It’s an unusual mix between teen drama and mystery. The show begins with a murder! Who doesn’t love a good “whodunnit?” It also has a weird, almost spooky Twin Peaks like vibe to it in general, which is fun.
Riverdale is also refreshing with its female characters. They’re strong, independent girls who don’t need no man (even though one would be nice for them). Veronica and Betty are smarter than the girls you grew up with (no offense, Marissa Cooper, but you weren’t exactly the best role model).
Plus, it’s only four episodes in! So you don’t have to feel guilty about spending a whole day on your couch, binge-watching with a bag of Doritos.
