Ok, soooo, let’s talk about Riverdale! OMG! This is my new favorite thing! I mean, it has been a while since anything has sent me into the deep dark recesses of the interwebs with this much obsessiveness.
* Cough* Dragon Age: Inquisition *Cough*
(Looking at you Solas!)
Tumblr, fan fiction, YouTube, you name it, I’ve already looked.
Ok, so full disclosure. While I know of the Archie comics, I have never really read them, other than the odd comic strip in the newspaper. So while I know who the characters are, I don’t really know them. I know there’s a love triangle between Archie, Betty and Veronica and I know that Jughead is the sarcastic friend. Other than that I am coming into this series knowing very little about the source material.
Now, I had really not planned on starting a new show. Work is crazy, I have a book to edit and another one to finish, plus mummy duties and wifey things. But, about a week ago, after a long, long week I started Riverdale. It was purely by accident!
My son had just gone down for his afternoon nap and I was supposed to be editing, or at least doing some reading. (I’m in a bit of a reading slump right now) But I was sooooo exhausted, so I turned on the Netflix. Browsing through I noticed that Riverdale came up in my featured shows. I figured it would be just another teen drama type thing and thought I’d watch one episode just for something to do.
And down the rabbit hole I went…
Am I sorry? Not at all, I even dragged my good friend down with me. Sorry, not sorry D 😉
I was hooked from the very first episode! I love everything about it, so expect more posts about Riverdale!
P.S. I ship Betty and Jughead so hard! #bughead4eva (There will totally be a future post about these two cuties)
Have you seen it yet? What did you think?
