I knew production was happening on a TV show based on the Archie Comics. Entitled Riverdale, I thought it was going to be a faithful live-action adaptation of the comics that I read as a child.

I’m not sure how I missed it but in May they released a trailer for the show (which is being shot in Vancouver). As you can see above, the show definitely is not following the comics at all. I thought it would be modernized somewhat but still retain the lighter aspects of the comics, like Jughead and his love of burgers. Instead, it looks like a teen version of Twin Peaks or something like that.

I can’t say I’m looking forward to this.

One thought on “OH NO”

  1. Wow…that looks about as bad an adaptation as taking a classic sci fi/horror movie and updating it by making the villan and hero team up and become friends.

    In other words it looks as bad as Alien vs. Predator
