Critic reviews for Chapter One: The River's Edge
Riverdale looks like it'll be a nice place to visit for a few seasons.
There are enough pieces for Riverdale to pass the midtown replacement test - even if the pilot perhaps killed the wrong ginger boy.
The CW's version of the bratty, elitist rich girl from the comics is that [Camila] Mendes has been given the green light to fully humanize Veronica. Where she was once evil and manipulative in the comics, now she's empathetic.
"Riverdale" manages to do some surprising things with these characters.
It may be a gritty reboot, but it's not actually subverting anything.
