The relationship between the two may already be on the rocks...
When 'Riverdale' came to the small screen at the beginning of 2017 on The CW, not many people knew what to expect from the Archie Comics small screen live adaptation. Teasers gave little pieces of information away, allowing potential viewers to dip their toes into one of the darkest worlds Archie and his friends would be a part of, teasing a murder mystery and quickly drawing comparison to 'Twin Peaks'.
'Riverdale' makes its season 2 return in October
Quickly becoming a hit, the show was perfect for water cooler conversation and amassed a loyal following, all intent on working out the mysteries presented in the series for themselves and flooding the internet with various theories, ranging from the ridiculous to the plausible. It's fair to say that executive producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and his team of cast and crew had a hit on their hands.

The actor is excited for fans to see the "over-the-top and campy" new episodes.
'Riverdale' impressed audiences across the globe throughout its first season. Though it confused many when it was revealed a television series would be brought to life based on the characters from the long-running Archie Comics books, the dark tone and humour injected throughout the show meant it was a major success, with US network The CW quickly ordering a second season.
Cole Sprouse and KJ Apa star as Jughead and Archie in the series
In the first, we saw the murder of Jason Blossom (Trevor Stines), whilst Archie (KJ Apa) and his friends Jughead (Cole Sprouse), Betty (Lili Reinhart), Veronica (Camila Mendes) and Kevin (Casey Cott) did their best to work out exactly who was behind the trigger, putting a bullet straight into the head of the young Blossom teen.

The talented brothers tend not to watch each other's work.
'Riverdale' has entertained audiences for 10 episodes now, with the current first season of the drama series based on the long-running Archie comic books proving to be yet another hit for US television network The CW. Broadcasting on Netflix in the UK, the series has brought an array of talented young actors to the small screen including KJ Apa as Archie, Lili Reinhart as Betty, Camila Mendes as Veronica, Casey Cott as Kevin and Cole Sprouse as Jughead.
Cole Sprouse and KJ Apa star in 'Riverdale'
Sprouse is perhaps the most recognisable name from those signed onto the show - at least before the series got started - following his time on the hit Disney Channel series 'The Suite Life Of Zack & Cody'. Now he's all grown up, and taking on what might be his most challenging and compelling role so far.
The Archie-Betty-Veronica love triangle will be a focus at some point, but not in the immediate future.
Based on the long-running Archie comic books, 'Riverdale' has become a huge hit both in the States and abroad, following the characters the series has made famous including Archie (KJ Apa), Veronica (Camila Mendes), Betty (Lili Reinhart) and Jughead (Cole Sprouse) amongst others.
The cast of 'Riverdale' Season 1
Currently focusing on a murder investigation, after Jason Blossom was found washed up with a bullet hole in his head, the show gives a darker and gloomier outlook on the town of Riverdale; one that much of the comic book readers wouldn't have been expecting. Despite that, much of the lore remains in place, and that includes the impending love triangle between Archie, Veronica and Betty.

Taken from the loving arms of his foster parents by unstable mom Sarah (Argento), Jeremiah (Jimmy Bennett for the first half; Dylan and Cole Sprouse for the latter section) finds himself unwillingly thrust into an itinerant life of substance abuse and sex-for-sale, a babe cast into the big bad woods of Middle American tract house communities and interstate truck stops. An odyssey of innocence parentally defiled, Argento's film strives, from the opening shot of a stuffed animal being waved in Jeremiah's face, to assume the perspective of her pint-sized protagonist, both through straightforward knee-high point-of-view shots as well as by grotesquely distorting her carnival-esque compositions to create a mood of terrified awe and dread. The result is a funhouse-mirror vibe rooted in squalor, from the decrepit apartments that Sarah and Jeremiah temporarily occupy with her assortment of boyfriends, to the parking lots where she plies her trade as a prostitute, to a combustible crack kitchen where the filth is so tangible that it can almost be felt creeping under one's fingernails. Still, working with cinematographer Eric Alan Edwards, Argento carefully balances these more out-there inclinations - felt most strikingly in Jeremiah's visions of cawing, flesh-eating red crows - with conventional setups and chronology, thereby deftly maintaining a tremulous sense of coherence even as her narrative begins spiraling into madness.

Adam Sandler has gone soft and it just doesn't work. Whilehe somehow managed to carry off his sweet, pathetic romantic lead characterin "The Wedding Singer" last year, in "BigDaddy" he's taken it too far. The formerly outrageous Sandler hasbecome the Sensitive Guy.
He's polite and politically correct toward two of his collegebuddies who turned gay and became a couple. He's accompanied everywherehe goes by a tender moments soundtrack copped from a General Foods InternationalCoffees commercial. And get this -- he cries. Not for laughs, either.He cries and wants the audience to commiserate with his broken little heart.He wants us to like him.
Buddy, you're Adam Sandler, not Jimmy Stewart. Heck, you'renot even Robin Williams, and he's no good at that sad clown crap, either.
