On Tuesday, August 15th Riverdale Season 1 will be available on DVD, Blu-Ray combo pack and digital HD for the first time ever for kids to enjoy from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the DVD I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.
Based on the characters from Archie Comics, Riverdale gives a subversive take on small-town life. Things aren’t always what you expect in Riverdale. As a new school year begins, the town is reeling from the tragic death of high school golden boy Jason Blossom. The summer’s events made all-American teen Archie Andrews realize that he wants to pursue a career in music, but his fractured friendship with Jughead Jones, and Josie McCoy’s focus on her own band leaves Archie without a mentor. Meanwhile, girl-next-door Betty Cooper is not ready to reveal her true feelings for Archie, and new student, Veronica Lodge, has an undeniable spark with Betty’s crush. And then there’s Cheryl Blossom, Riverdale’s queen bee, who stirs up trouble amongst Archie, Betty and Veronica. But is Cheryl hiding something about the mysterious death of her twin brother, Jason? Riverdale may look like a quiet, sleepy town, but there’s so much more to the story.
Warner Bros. Television, creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and producer Greg Berlanti present a new dark, gritty drama based on the long running Archie comic books. This is set in present day and will keep the audience guessing what is really going on from the first episode. This 13 episode first season offers something for everyone. What of the favorites from this season includes Josie and the Pussy Cats including their take on popular songs.
One of our favorite episodes was from episode 7, In a Lonely Place. The dream sequence that pays homage to the original comic. This show nailed it from the casting to the stories. On August 15th you will have the opportunity to catch up on the first season or re-watch the first season to get ready for Season 2 this fall.
