  • DeCarlo Rules: It seems like they put extras on a disc because people expect them, or it helps drive sales, but more often than not, it seems like very little thought goes into the content. Of course there are some examples where the extras are exceptional, but usually that's not the case.

  • irishmoxie: I love digital movies and streaming. I usually get the Blu-ray Disc because I like to watch the extras the first time and then end up adding the digital code online or rip it and put it on the hard drive. Just much more convenient to stream it then search for the disc when I want to watch it.

  • DeCarlo Rules: On the other hand, maybe I should just bypass the Blu-Ray format altogether, buy a huge terabyte HD, and download everything. There's something to be said for that, in that you can get everything quicker and stacks of Blu-Ray cases aren't taking up space in your house, I guess.

  • DeCarlo Rules: This coming from a guy who still hasn't capitulated to the inevitable domination of Blu-Ray. It's getting to the point where I might have to relent, since I've seen some anime sets being released for the first time on Blu-Ray (no combo pak) with NO release of a DVD version.

  • DeCarlo Rules: I'll never get used to people not being able to wait a few days when they order stuff online. I guess maybe I could understand it IF it were something that there was no other way to see, but I assume you've already seen the episodes.  People who are that impatient usually don't even buy disc sets, they just buy it digitally or stream it.

  • DeCarlo Rules: The questions you ask about classic Archie (which is a cartoon on paper) are sort of "real-world logic" questions. A cartoon world, unlike the real world, creates its own rules and its own logic, nonsensical as that might be. Like Wile E. Coyote not being affected by gravity until he looks down and realizes he's run off the edge of the cliff.

  • Tuxedo Mark: With New Riverdale, things kinda make more sense, overall, I guess. With Classic Archie (even new Classic Archie), I find myself often asking "Why is this even an issue?" or "Why would the teen characters even care about this?" With Riverdale, it's absolutely insane bonkers, but everyone involved is in on the joke, so it's fun to just sit back, shut off my brain, and enjoy. :)

  • DeCarlo Rules: What I originally meant by "realistic" is that actors are more convincing at portraying real people on television than lines on paper and words in dialogue balloons are in a comic book.

Archie: The Next Generation?
« on: June 24, 2016, 02:48:23 pm »
So here's a little idea. What if they take many of the main Archie Characters and give them kids. Like pair up Archie & Veronica, Reggie & Betty, Jughead & Midge(Life With Archie), Dilton & Cheryl, and Moose & Ethel. Make them all adults of either pre teens or teenagers who all live in Riverdale.  Do you think this would work and possibly be fun to see Archie tormented by his kids like he tormented his own dad?

In the last issue of Life With Archie. He did have a son & daughter. But they hide who the mother of children so you didn't know if Betty or Veronica were the mom.

Yes I know. I think it would fun to have there kids as teens and really make them the central characters with Archie, Betty, Veronica, Jughead, and Reggie still in it but more like the parents. So there teen kids could drive them crazy.

I'm not sure what I'd find compelling about Archie & the gang suddenly having kids beyond just a one-off "imaginary" type storyline.  I liked the way LWA approached a similar concept by having Archie and Betty as teachers of teen students who could (potentially) drive them batty.

I do miss Life With Archie. That coming in the mail was such a treat. I guess the next generation of Archie is the reboot of the comics. Especially in the 1st Josie, Melody tells Josie she can have a drink. So do her & Melody drink alcohol. And it seemed like they lived in a apartment. They don't live at home anymore. That would never fly in the old days. And wasn't Pepper working in a bar. And she looked much older than the rest of the girls.

I always thought they could have built a LWA spinoff series around Jellybean and her friends (which could also include some of Archie and Betty's new students at Riverdale). Jellybean, as the only 'name' character bridging the series to the past (but otherwise, as a teenager, effectively a blank slate) would be the natural anchor or lynch pin around which the other characters revolved, with Archie, Betty, Jughead, etc. taking over the roles formerly held by Mr. Weatherbee, Ms. Grundy, and Pop Tate. Of course, opportunities would abound for guest appearances of the "whatever happened to... ?" type: imagine Josie McCoy as a local independent music producer, Sabrina Spellman as the proprietress of a New Age/occult bookshop, Samantha Smythe as the owner of a heath & fitness club, Jinx Holliday as a local collegiate sports star, etc.

In the TV Serie Riverdale the parents are grown up versions of the kids. It seems there was even a tringle between Fers, Alice and Hermione. Also Fred and FP were close friends, justa like their sons.
