The popular hit Netflix original Riverdale has been garnering a lot of attention over the past year. The show, based on the popular Archie comic series, instantly became a smashing success for the online streaming provider. The mysterious murder of Jason Blossom raises many questions throughout the community of Riverdale and reveals deep dark secrets as well. Being that the characters from Archie Comics are used in the show, the Archie Comic fans had the idea that the show would be like the comics but in reality, it is much different–and much darker–than that.

The characters are portrayed differently as they are seen in the Archie comics as they are geared towards a teenage audience; in fact, the audience most familiar with the comic series may not even recognize these characters. 

Many events and conflicts that brew between the characters are dark, dirty, and mysterious, establishing a specific tone and mood for the show, especially due to the initial murder of Jason Blossom and subsequent attack of his sister, Cheryl Blossom, who was with him at that time. This show is filled with mysterious motives, crime, and drama as well, and it fits in with the high school aspect of the world because our world is dominated with teenagers behaving in a similar manner, even if it is a bit exaggerated for TV.

If you have not yet watched the show, I suggest that you do so because it’s binge-watching worthy and is very interesting.
