    Nice to see the masturbating girl from MAD MEN cast in something new.

    Clive Barker contributed a bunch of original artwork to the series.

    My god this looks terrible! The comic is this great, dark, twisted '70s inspired subversive tale. It's not jokey in the least. This looks like it belongs on the CW. I expected better from Netflix.

    I don’t know why anyone expected this not to be a train wreck, considering it’s the bozos behind Riverdale making it. I’ll probably watch it with my wife and daughter and we will all heckle it and wonder why we aren’t watching something better.

    I had reasonably high hopes for this but maybe that's because I've never watched an episode of Riverdale.

    Sad that they didn't do a straight adaptation of the comic.

    Watched the first episode this morning. It wasn't jokey though beyond that I couldn't say how true to the previous incarnations it was. I was too old to watch the earlier series and I don't read a lot of comics. Though I suspect it doesn't share much DNA with either- despite the 50s vibe it's very much a modern day tale. Very aware of itself as a post #metoo program for instance.

    I think one episode is probably enough for me. It's a teen drama squarely aimed at teenage girls. I'm not a teenager or a girl and I think you need to tick off at least one of those to really get into this.

    Lead actress is impressive though. Very self assured in a way you'd expect from a much older actress. Can't stand the character she's playing though. And it looks great. And there were a few good moments. Hell, I'll possibly give it one episode once I finish with Bodyguard.
