The Archie TV megathread


Feat. Riverdale chat, Sabrina hype and presumably, eventually Josie and the Pussycats becoming a tv show.

They just cast Sally Draper as Sabrina.


I’m going to watch the new Sabrina with some trepidation. I love the original series, it was a cornerstone of my childhood, and I’ve comfort-rewatched the entire thing about 3 times since adulthood took me against my will.

Should probably watch Riverdale, people keep telling me it’s good, although I have recently seen some #kickingoff on social media that Jughead isn’t asexual like he is in the comics.


Did you read the comic that this ones going to be based on? It’s v good and gory and satanic and super stylish, I really liked it.


Never actually read any Sabrina comics, what’s it called? I’ll give it a go if it’s good. The only Archie stuff I’ve read at all was that one recent trade that was written by Mark Waid and half drawn by Fiona Staples and half Annie Wu. I’ve also got Afterlife With Archie sat there waiting to be read but not got around to it yet.


should i watch Riverdale?


They’re in the same vein as Afterlife With Archie (I haven’t read Afterlife With Archie though). very bloody and dark, full of rituals and things being sacrificed and super 1960s styled all of which I like. The horror is fully ramped up and it’s really not like the tv show.


I think it’s a really likeable show.



v similar visually to riverdale which isn’t necesarily a bad thing, but doesn’t look like it’s got quite as perfect a style as the comics


I watched all of riverdale, pretty good, better than twin peaks, but found the over arching story pretty sloppy, like they foreshadowed stuff in season 1 that came to fruition in season 2, but then its execution kind of negates the family history of season 1 to the point it makes less sense. Have s televisual crush on jughead
