Default SO MY WIFE JUST SHOWED ME THE AD FOR "RIVERDALE" (COMING TO CW).

I just have one question.

If they absolutely needed to make another show that was CSI but with teenagers fucking.

WHY DIDN'T THEY JUST MAKE ANOTHER SHOW THAT WAS CSI BUT WITH TEENAGERS FUCKING?!

I MEAN THAT'S LITERALLY 99% OF TV SHOWS IN EXISTENCE.

YOU DON'T NEED TO JUSTIFY THAT! IT'S ALREADY JUSTIFIED. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS SAY TO THE NETWORK "THE SHOW I WANT TO MAKE HAS COPS AND TEENAGERS (PLAYED BY ACTORS AGED 22-35) WHO HAVE SEX". YOU DON'T NEED AN EXTRA HOOK! EVERY GODDAMN SHOW IS THIS!

the fine folks at The CW (comics weekly) saw the gritty flintstones comic and were like "they made a sitcom tv series into a gritty comic, let's make a sitcom comic into a gritty tv series"

What diseased mind looked at Jughead and said "Let's replace his crown with a beanie and also have him impassionately plea to Archie about how kids are dead and then go to his room and be stern and serious and sad while Archie has sex with two girls.

I bet jughead won't even eat hamburgers and also they'll never call him jughead because how juvenile and immature.

Now TV shows that are CSI and also teenagers fucking?

THAT'S MATURITY RIGHT THERE.

Holy fuck that explains so much and literally nothing at the same time.

I'm actually hoping that the weird tonal incongruity makes for a fun show.

There are a lot of things that are good when they show up in Archie, but of them, weird tonal incongruity is the best.

betty cooper is clearly still alive but the trailer sort of implicates her as the culprit

What happens when shows about high schoolers go on for more than 4 seasons?

Do they just hope nobody notices? do they claim they all got held back a year? Do they all get hired by their dads and work at their dads law firms?

I actually tried to watch Under The Dimmadome once I caught wind of how bad it was. It was...pretty bad. I don't know whether I would have wanted it to run on and on though, even if it would have degenerated into awe-inspiring self-parody.

Look, if I found one Jacob Clifton or Heather Hogan recapping my life and willing to spin all of my bullshit as profound and actually very good, if you think about it, I'd ride that for as long as I could, frankly.

It owned in The 100 when all the future space kids got off their ship and started jamming to imagine dragons.

Couldn't they just do a live-action version of the old Josie and the Pussycats series that totally wasn't a ripoff of Scooby-doo, even though they traveled around in a van solving mysteries.

Melody x Alexandra is my OTP BTW

Buffy the Vampire Slayer got decent comedic mileage out of some characters going to college and other characters becoming stagnant pathetic failure-to-launch cases (one of whom, oddly, was the fortysomething dude).

I've got two things to say about this. First is that this is Archie as Twin Peaks, not Archie as CSI. Or at least it is intended to be. I don't know if that makes things better or worse.

Second, the new Flintstones comic is a) not gritty in the least and b) possibly the best comic being published in America at this moment. It is a perfect update of the cartoon, only with gentle Honeymooners sitcom humor twisted into a pitch black existential satire

time stops in season 3 and then they do a time skip to post college in season 5-ish. or they pull a gossip girl and follow time normally but make it feel like a time skip happened because characters attend college for like one year and then are hired to run newspapers

sorry PP, this isn't going to happen since Sabrina is now on "Melissa and Joey" and that's owned by another company .

no really, one of Sabrina's aunts showed up on M&J and was all "hey, you're actually Sabrina Spellman and you've had your memory wiped, well have fun now."

I'll accept that we might have different definitions of "gritty" but I won't budge from that second point. The Flintstones is dark. It is bleak and depressing, but it is also very clean and stylized, the opposite of being gritty.
