I hope it's as good as To Riverdale and Back Again, the TV movie from the 90s.

Nothing could ever be as good as To Riverdale and Back Again.

Oh, wait. "Wretched." That's what I meant.

...It's an hour long drama. Why is anything involving Archie an hour long drama?

Because Jughead's journey as an asexual hamburger addict needs to be taken seriously.

I'm cool with the format. I mean, yeah, teen comedy would have been better but it feels like Life With Archie sold them more on the show than anything else.

Wait, I just watched this, when did Jughead become a pedophile?

I think it was all the hormones in the burgers.

I really do need to find someone to review that thing with someday. That and the 97 Justice League pilot and Generation X. Then my sad sad life will be complete.

I suppose it was only a matter of time...Wonder if Sabrina, the Teenage Witch will be in continuity with it.

Funny you should say that, Chris. Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, Archie's creative director and the guy writing the pilot, has done an interview. Some highlights include that the show is being thought of as Archie meets Twin Peaks, there will be some comedic tones to it, and that they're looking to do an "Afterlife with Archie" episode every year for Halloween.

The CW became an all comic book adaptation network so slowly I never even noticed.

Making Archie's dad super-fuckable seems like a weird place to be going for this.

The C stands for Comics.

I'm really excited for this show, I hope it's good.

I saw the pilot at SDCC Wednesday during Preview Night. It is fucking hilarious. Every crass, out-of-place with Archie concept you could imagine for the this, it does. I live-tweeted my viewing experience, but off the top of my head the craziest things were

-Betty being a pill popper

-Veronica's line "I've tasted every kind of boy but orange" when referring to Archie

-Kevin Keller's character assassination in being an awful gay stereotype

-Reggie saying to Archie "Tap any Cougar ass this summer?"

-Ms. Grundy's statutory rape of Archie (I knew that going in)

-Veronica french-kissing Betty just to make the Cheerleading Squad

-Moose propositioning Kevin in the bathroom, and later agrees to do everything with him "except kissing, I'm not gay"

-Jughead being a bizarre omniscient narrator

-Jason Blossom being shot in the forehead

-Archie's dad Luke Perry having cheated on Archie's mom with Veronica's mom
