The concept is enough to hook us in, with the beloved Archie comics characters in a teen drama, The OC-like setting. Though it’s set in the original Riverdale, don’t expect dense, inconsequential plots you used to read in comic form—this show has Archie, Betty, Veronica and the rest of the gang deal with real (and waaaay more dramatic) life stuff.
