I'm only 17, but I loved reading the Archie comics as a young girl. I had no idea this show exsisted until my Suite Life crush, Cole Sprouse, tweeted about it. I was super excited to watch it. The first episode threw me off a bit, but by the third episode I was obsessed. My personal favorite characters were Kevin and Jughead. There is some violence (people getting beaten up, murder not onscreen), some language (can't remember from the top of my head), some sex (shirtless men, barebacks of women), LGBT+ conversations + characters (which I'm fine with, being pansexual myself), but an overall good show. !!!SPOILER ALERT!!!
In the last episode, Archie's Dad, Fred, is shot. It's very shocking, and had me shaken up for a good few minutes. If your child is squeamish to blood or very emotional, I suggest having them walk out of the room at that scene. Jughead and his Dad have a complex relationship. FP is a Southside Serpent with a drinking problem, and Jughead is a gloomy teen just trying to get through life. FP is dragged off to jail after they find the gun that murdered Jason Blossom in his house. Jughead is horrified by this, and decides to stay with his Mom and sister in Toledo for awhile, which doesn't go to plan. Big spoiler coming up.
It's pretty shocking to watch Clifford shoot Jason. It actually made me cry, knowing that stuff like that happens in the real world. It's pretty scary, and if your kid is under 10, I'd have them exit the room.
!!!SPOILER SECTION OVER!!!
I think it's a great show, if you're an adult that grew up with the Archie comics, definitely watch it, if you're a kid with a big imagination and you're not scared of blood, go ahead.
