To Riverdale and Back Again (Archie, 1990)


Mention to this mediocre made for television flick to any hardcore comic book fanboy of long standing, and you'll get a combination of snickers and groans. In my opinion, this attempt to update and add mature themes to the Riverdale gang was a train wreck waiting to happen, and boy.....am I grateful to have been able to have watched this during it's original network airing.


The really weird thing is, going back and reading the far better comic book adaptation of this flick (written by Robert Loren Fleming and illustrated by the late, great Gene Colan) nearly twenty years after the fact....it reads like some sorta odd Riverdale version of Kingdom Come or Earth X....

I remember the movie and I am one of the few that actually liked it. Even though it was never a sit-com it played like it was a reunion movie of an old sitcom. Maybe they did it that way because reunion movies were big back then.
