In case you've somehow missed my rooftop-shouting, I loved the Riverdale pilot out of SDCC. Greg Berlanti and Archie comics CCO Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa have created a spooky and stylish new take on Archie Andrews and the gang, one that weaves in gorgeous Twin Peaks references among all those triple-straw milkshakes.
Don't believe me? Check out the new promo, which shows a hot shirtless Archie jogging through the fog:
A couple things to note: the beautiful young lady tipping her heart-shaped sunnies at Archie is...Miss Grundy. Furthermore, the boy fighting Archie is Jughead. Also, yeah, Archie is swoll. Purists are gonna get so mad at this juicy show!
Riverdale arrives on The CW on Thursday, January 26. Amanda Reid and I will be recapping for FYA, and I honestly can't wait!
