Dear oh dear, what­ever will you think of me? Am I re­ally con­fess­ing my guilty se­cret – that teen fave Riverdale made my binge-watch­ing list? Well, don’t judge me, but yes, I am. It helps to see Kiwi ac­tor and ris­ing star K.J. Apa do his thing here, in a rather sub­ver­sive take on the Archie Comics uni­verse. Archie, Betty, Veron­ica and Jug­head Jones are all besties, as their nice lit­tle town of Riverdale goes to hell in a hand-bas­ket af­ter a school­mate is mur­dered. There are se­crets, lies and lots of teenage angst to deal with, and while I grew weary of the Bev­erly Hills, 90210/Gos­sip Girl vibe to­wards the end of Sea­son 1, I will still be tun­ing in to Sea­son 2!
