    The "Riverdale" Adults Are Way Hotter On The Show Than In The Comics

    The glow up is real.

    The high school sophomores (lolol it's totally believable) on Riverdale are the focus of the show, but it's time to show some love to the super-hot adults who birthed, taught, and waited on them.
