Riverdale has never known quite what to do with its milquetoast hero (other than have him be shirtless as often as possible) and this storyline does not appear to be remedying that--unless, as was mentioned, they’re ultimately getting rid of him. ... At least the show has Betty and Jughead around to be awesome together. They are definitely worth tuning in for, and there is potential for a few other storylines to blossom into some strong material as well.

There’s always room to reshape this world, always an opportunity to hit the reset button. “Riverdale” provides enough fun, pulpy mystery for us to drift along with its weird courtship, at least for a while, and see where the current takes us.

There’s just enough happening underneath the surface to make it worthy of deeper study. This is no zombie corpse of a comic book adaptation. A heart beats here.

Broody teens, dark secrets, melodramatic school dances, supernaturally hot people breaking each other’s hearts for as far as the eye can see: This is the teen soap way. And no show on the air right now knows that better than The CW’s Riverdale.
