Every few years it seems like some teen drama comes along and hooks me even though I couldn't care less about most of these types of shows. The fact that it's loosely based on Archie Comics probably helped.

Already one of my favorite shows.

I'm really liking it so far. I know nothing about the Archie comics other than the love triangle because it gets referenced in other things.

Same for me. I knew next to nothing about Archie before watching this series, but so far I'm really enjoying it.

Yup, I'm hooked to it as well. I loved the Archie comics growing up as a kid so I was skeptical at first but so far I really like it.

Yep it's hooked me for now, 'now' being the operative word but less of Josie and the (racial political baggage) will go a very long way.

I watch supernatural, flash, arrow and vamp diaries, I was supposed to do away with teeny high school crap but I am watching this on CW, at least it's not all high school stuff and there are the adult parents stories as well, it's interesting enough, hasn't blown my mind yet

I was digging it at first but I've lost a lot of interest in the past few episode mainly because they have placed so much emphasis on the adults. I think its time to remove it from my DVR list.

I hear you, but tonight's episode looks promising. Last week's kind of put me off a bit. These kid's are supposed to be 15. They aren't going to save Archie's father's business. And why aren't they in school more? That's where kids spend most of their waking hours.

I'm really afraid that the CW is going to "Gossip Girl" this show and have kids acting just like adults, which is not good. I really like Betty and Veronica, though, and Cheryl is a lot of fun, so I'm going to stick with it for now, but a lot of that early promise is evaporatiing as it turns into a a cross between GG and "Revenge."

I was watching That 70's show today and they did a great job making sure the show was about the kids and that the parent were still important without over doing it with them. Now feels like with Ringwald coming on board this show is totally forgetting that Archie and his friends are on it.

I feel the same way. I try not to get tied up into teen dramas, but this one is very well written, that I can't help but like it

Now feels like with Ringwald coming on board this show is totally forgetting that Archie and his friends are on it. I see it
