20 Influential TV Shows That Paved The Way For Riverdale
Beverly Hills, 90210
Beverly Hills, 90210 basically offers character template that every other teen show uses from then on. It’s also notable for the starring role that Luke Perry played on the show as bad boy that would make even Jughead Jones weak in the knees.
90210 wasn’t a particularly good show, but it was wildly popular, and it’s a show that basically every other teen show would comment on or reference in one way or another. It became a blueprint that all other teen TV would change or adapt to fit their own needs. Riverdale is not an exception to that rule.
