Most likely the show wont last a season (if they're going in the Archie x Grundy version, I sure hope it doesn't last).  Then again, that's just my thought.
Definitely most of the choices for actors and actresses have been bizarre to say the least, but Miss Grundy is the weirdest of them all.

And remember Luke Perry who is playing Archie's Dad Fred was once considered the new James Dean back when he started Beverly Hills 90210.  ;D

I thought of a great person to play Ethel, the girl from The Middle. On The Middle Sue is odd just like Ethel.
I highly doubt any actress would leave a very successful show for a show that may not even have a future.



Eden Sher is better off being and staying on The Middle. BTW, I don't think Ethel is odd, she is just kinda plain looking, which I suppose by Hollywood standards so is Eden (Sue). And remember they just want beauty queens and hunks for the CW show  :P

Like I said before this show other than the names of the characters being the same as the Archie Comics characters has really no comparisons to the comics after that. Going into it I am not even looking at it as an Archie Comics T.V. show.

Cheryl

I'm going to give this show a chance. I don't have a problem with the casting, I'm just going to look at it for what it is: some melodramatic teen soap. I don't see it lasting beyond a few seasons but it might just drum up some interest in Archie comics, although it'll be quite unlike the comics themselves! Unless they're planning some kind of tie-in at some point...

Great Gazoo

I think if this show does have a few seasons where it does succeed it will not be because of the Archie Comics fans who are viewing the show but I think this show will only stay afloat because the teens will take to another teen drama that has been flooding the market for the past 10 years. Most Archie Comics Fans I have spoken to  or read things from show so much displeasure on the show.

It really hasn't much to do with Archie -- it's just a vehicle for Roberto to make an unrelated show and use the Archie name for publicity. >:(

I wonder what the ratio is of kids vs adult readers for Archie
Are teenagers actually reading Archie? Or is it us older fans who have been reading for years..



Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk



Little kids still make up the largest share of Archie's audience. The digests remain their financial backbone.


Archie, however, is ignoring both of these facts by letting the digests deteriorate and by foolishly pursuing the adult audience of the direct sales market.
