I liked Archie's song. The music on this show is well done and an extra treat. As is the art direction. I also like that they are taking the time to give every character, including the adults, some kind of story. And although I like the way Kevin is written, I don't like how little he is used. Hopefully the story they've set up for Kevin will start to play out. Judging from the comments I see around the web, most people watching Riverdale are doing so for Cole Sprouse. A LOT of people grew up watching him and his brother. He is an appealing actor and so I think it's possible this show could become Jughead and gang eventually.
I am thrilled to hear about a second season, I was really afraid that it wouldn't been renewed with the ratings sinking each week. Poor KJ Apa really needs a break. Hopefully they will write Archie more appealingly next season. And please promote Kevin to a regular; Casey Cott is great and it's a crying shame he has no storyline. No more gaybaiting please - "Kevin's storyline really kicks off in episode 4" - yeah, right! He got a kiss in that episode and zilch after that.
A second season may have been pre-ordained regardless of ratings due to the Nextflix deal. I don't really have a problem with how appealing Archie is since he's supposed to be a socially clumsy f**kboy, but having him isolated from the show's main plot baffles me. I kind of wonder if Kevin scenes keep ending up on the cutting room floor because there is so much going on with so many characters. It's a big mistake by the show not to give him more screen time because I think Kevin could draw a lot of viewers to the show if he was more than a set decoration.
