Oversexed Teenagers
27 January 2017 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Not sure why they named it after the Archie comic book universe. They could have called it Dawson's Creek, the Next Generation and it would have worked the same.

So you have the same love triangle, the oversexed teenagers, a murder mystery, dysfunctional families, and the school yard politics. Not really akin to the happy go lucky Archie comic books at all. There is no humor at all in this show, so don't expect it. I really don't see the reason for the Archie reference other than the writers couldn't think up names for their characters so they just defaulted to a comic book lying on their desk. You can't have Archie sleeping with Ms.Grundy and expect Archie fans to like it. It's like Harry Potter sleeping with McGonagall. It's just too far off.
