Intro for October 24, 2014

Dear Gossips,

Um.

They’re making an Archie TV show.

Deadline reports that Greg Berlanti (Arrow, The Flash) is involved and that if all goes to plan, the show will be called Riverdale and it will air on FOX.

I know my reaction is supposed to be all, “F-ck this, how DARE they mess with Archie” but… I think I might be into it. Apparently Riverdale will be about small town life, the darkness underneath it, and, of course, high school love triangles and rivalries. Archie, Veronica, Betty, Reggie, Jughead, and Josie and the Pussycats are all expected. It’s Gossip Girl, Heathers, and Twin Peaks all at the same time. Possibly.

What’s the problem???

Fine. You hate the idea. Or maybe you don’t give a sh-t. Maybe you weren’t into Archie Comics the way I was when I was a kid – and still now. Now I take Archie to the bathroom and, frankly, that’s an honour. Everybody knows bathroom reading is carefully curated.

So let me know. Would you watch Archie on television? Are you angry that Archie is coming to television? And also, one of the most important questions in pop culture, the question that well preceded Jen or Angelina…

Are you Betty or Veronica?

Have a great weekend!

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

How To Get Away With Murder Season 1 Episode 5 recap Let’s be right up front and say that everything I know about lawyering I learned from TV, everything about people who know how to calculate people’s hearts but choose to turn off their own, those who want justice but know the reality is that sometimes getting reasonably close is good enough. Full Story
