There should have been a series!!

I just watched this never aired pilot on You Tube and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I felt that most of the casting was excellent and it is an extremely enjoyable and pleasant show. It certainly came much closer to the comic book versions of the world of Riverdale, in my opinion, than the very poor 1990 NBC TV movie "To Riverdale and Back Again". Aside from a few of the characters not being very similar to their comic book versions (Mr. Weatherbee and Mr. Andrews), I feel they did a splendid job with the casting of the principal characters. It is difficult to know if John Simpson (Archie) had red (like the comic book version) or blond hair, but he was otherwise very good in the role. The casting of Jughead was acceptable. The casting of Cheryl Holdridge as Betty and Mikki Jamison as Veronica was also excellent. I personally loved the era (1964) when this was made and it is a very nice and nostalgic window to a simpler past watching this show. I am just sorry that a series was never made, because I think it would have been very good and a lot of fun.
