Three seasons in and Riverdale is still going strong. Despite its branding as guilty-pleasure TV, critics have been kind the show, a teenage-noir reboot of the Archie comic books. It’s been called “daring” and “addictive” but also “odd.” That’s fair enough. Faithful fans of the comics might be perplexed or even alarmed given how many scenes open with Archie working out shirtless and, you know, all the murder. From the get-go, it’s clear that Riverdale isn’t the Archie Americans will remember reading in the grocery store check-out line.
