I was shocked to find out that the new show my teenage daughter is hooked on, "Riverdale," is based on one of my childhood favorite comics, Archie! I use to collect all their comic books. I loved it!
I had heard my daughter make reference to Riverdale and she also mentioned Dylan Sprouse, who I remember from "Suite Life of Zack and Cody," but when I started looking into the show, I soon found out that it is based on the same characters I remember: Archie and The Gang, Betty Veronica and Jughead!)
I see it as a wonderful way of meshing two worlds and bonding over new and old heart throbs.
Guess, who will be watching Riverdale with her daughter? Me! LOL! Hey, I have to be able to relate to a teenager about something right?
I can see it now, cat ears becoming the hottest new trend for girls and guys wearing jackets with big letters on them (their initials on it!) I know, I know I get carried away with nostalgia but I think I am right, their merchandise is everywhere already!
I just love how old school stuff gets revamped for new generations and that I have a new way of communicating and sharing time with my teenager, who would otherwise probably be glued to her cell phone "Snap-chatting" her friends.
I'll take it!
