There is a good chance that you are still wiped out from the recent NY Comic Con (and I know that I am). If this is how you are feeling then there is nothing better than relaxing in front of the television watching some awesome shows. Thanks to the programming on The CW Network, my DVR is working overtime and now its time to welcome back “Riverdale” which begins its own third season tonight. Check out the dramatic poster along with some premise and casting. I’ll close out with some additional opinion.
October is here and that means Halloween will be dropping by soon enough. It was only a few weeks ago that I shared the teaser trailer for the Netflix Original Series “The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina” with the readership and with my being busy at the NY Comic Con that is hitting our region over the next four days am stoked to share the brand new Official Trailer that was revealed yesterday. Check it out and then keep on scrolling for some other goodies.
Netflix is delving into some classic comic book characters with this revamped and reimagined take on Archie Comics famous witch Sabrina” with a Horror and Supernatural based show called “The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina”. The trailer was just unveiled and you can check it out below along with some light premise and the casting. Check it out.
As previously mentioned, with the 2018 Comic Con International: San Diego (or SDCC) ending today, I’ve been showcasing all of the trailers for The CW Network of programming that are most topical to our demographic of readers. Essentially the comic book and horror themed stuff that came to light yesterday. I’ve actually finished with all of their super-hero programming and those clips along with several others that you might find interesting can be examined HERE. Our next clip takes us to the town of “Riverdale” to see what dramas and circumstance will befall Archie Andrews and his friends. Let’s take a look.
I’m keeping with all of the season premieres that are focused on the comic book properties and point out that “Riverdale” will be airing this evening on The CW Network with its second season premiere. Check out the dramatic poster along with some brief premise and casting.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I have to admit that I never thought I would find this show interesting but it actually is. Knowing the sugar coated fashion of the old Archie Comics as I did, I never expected a gritty, dark and often mysterious show about these characters in a real life setting would work but it did. I gave it a shot by running the DVR on a few episodes and found myself tuning in each and every week. On the comics side, there are more gritty and serious Archie Comics on the stands. Some of them use a bit of an “Elseworlds” premise and have him fending off zombies and the like and believe it or not, the character was even killed off in his own title in one of these potential futures. Amazing. Oh yeah and he’s met both The Ramones and KISS which I got a kick out of. “Riverdale” was even a part of this years “Free Comic Book Day” and recapped the first episode of the series on the printed page. If you’ve found any interest in these characters I say give the show a run through as its rather unique. That’s all I have to say about it. If you’ve watched it and enjoyed it, let me know down in the comments section below.
