I'm all caught up on this show, and you guys, it is so great. Archie Comics are one of my most hardcore nostalgia fandoms from my preteen/early-teen years, which makes me feel like I'm supposed to be some kind of purist about it. However, I think there are fandoms to be a purist about and fandoms that I just want remixed every which way, and Archie is definitely the latter. And so this campy, trashy soap is EVERYTHING I DREAMED OF.

* Jughead Jones has been my fav of faves for twenty years, and I am positively giddy every single time he's on screen. Is it because of the twenty-year crush? Because I love this Jughead, specifically? Because Cole Sprouse? Because he is the woobiest woobie on the show? IDK, and I judge myself a little, but I love him SO MUCH, and it was probably inevitable.

* Perfect characters: Jughead, Betty, Veronica, Reggie, Archie's dad, Josie. Lots of racebending in this show. I especially appreciate that Veronica is both 100% NYC rich bitch and also explicitly Latina. I really want more Reggie. I love Betty SO MUCH MORE than I thought I would.

Archie is also fine, although I kinda dgaf about his music vs jock angst. This digging up old Andrews-Jones history is way more interesting.

* No OTPs yet, but I do have a variety of ships I'm intrigued by: Betty/Veronica (Veronica is ELECTRIC every time she's on screen), Reggie/anyone. I am just aching to ship Veronica/Jughead, but the show so far has refused to give me any V/J interactions. :( Betty/Jughead is pretty freaking adorable but not in a way that makes me need more of it. (I also desperately want a B/V/J threesome, possibly with Jughead as a virgin.)

* I love how this show killed the Betty/Archie/Veronica triangle dead by the end of episode two. It's been 76 years of that, guys. We did not need it anymore. B/V friends 5ever.

* The Blossoms are amazing. Cheryl is especially amazing, and most especially to me, who remembers when Jason and Cheryl appeared on the scene in the comics in the mid-90s. Meanwhile the Jason flashbacks are just kind of... lolarious? I think he's definitely serving the narrative best by being dead.

* I'm not imagining the incesty Blossom twin vibes, though, right? I'm not? I mean it's already canon in one Archie universe. (Afterlife with Archie, A++ zombie AU incidentally written by the same guy who's Riverdale.)

* This show is, at its core, about not trusting anyone over thirty. Almost every adult in this town is corrupt, evil, incompetent, or straight-up delusional. Fred Andrews and Hermione Lodge are the best of a bad bunch.

TELL ME YOUR FEELINGS, FRIENDS.

You are singing the song of my heart. A friend and I were just talking a few weeks ago about this exact scenario, haha.

You are 100% not. I saw their matching outfits and weird vibes and shouted TWINCEST!!! at my computer.

I'm not sure the B/A/J triangle is killed dead, though. Especially since Veronica and Archie had a ~moment~ recently. They haven't kept up mentioning Betty's feelings for Archie, but I'm wary.
