Since this first and most interesting season of the new hit teen show Riverdale has come to an end, it's time to discuss how much our favorite characters of the Archie universe have actually changed, and why they've changed, since the much more wholesome days of Betty and Veronica competing in music video contests and Jughead eating like a lot of food. And while we're at it, why not take a look at how many more of those 90's teen shows have been rebooted for the teens of today, since apparently modern teens like heroin, maple syrup, and murder?

Or you could follow Teylor's foolproof way to avoid a burn/skin damage: STAY INSIDE!

So come join us as we figure out the extent of the Chicken Nugget Thursday and the state that is one big pizza line.
