  • Vegan Jughead: Ms. Grundy would have been a total surprise but it turned out she wasn't really Ms. Grundy so I can let that go.  Killing Moose after barely seeing him last year and Midge after she was in literally one episode (and barely in it, at that) seems ridiculous.

  • DeCarlo Rules: For a character franchise that's been running for 75+ years, ARCHIE really has a pretty small cast of regulars. Apart from the core 5 and the other 6 already mentioned, there's Cheryl & Jason and Kevin... and (filed under "extended supporting players") the teachers and parents. That's pretty much it. 14 teen characters and their parents & teachers. Sabrina and Josie and their supporting casts coexist in Riverdale, but they're really their own separate franchises. If your murder victims turn out to be Jinx Malloy and Cricket O'Dell, there's not much drama in it, beyond a shrug.

  • DeCarlo Rules: Why Moose and Midge? Good question... let me know if you can think of any other ongoing characters who are more expendable, but still well-known. I guess the other likely candidates would be Dilton and Ethel, or Chuck and Nancy. I guess you could come up with a short list of other names, but are they really that well-known? Ms. Grundy was a total surprise!

  • CAPalace: Seriously though why are Moose and Midge like one of the first people to die whenever they are in the horror stories line and now Riverdale lol

  • Tuxedo Mark: I recently watched Geek House's reaction to the episode. They're very amateur. They often leave in false starts and farting around before the actual intro. Joey often struggles with the episode title, like he can't just look it up before they start recording. Joey has to announce that he's putting the video into full screen and then does a countdown. Cut all of that stuff out! In the new review, he and his wife didn't react at all to Moose and Midge being killed. It soon became apparent that they didn't even know it was Moose and Midge! Joey referred to them as the "drug addicts".

  • JonInIowaCity: I'm not saying that they're dead, but they're not listed as appearing in any future episodes in IMBD, while other minor characters are.
    October 20, 2017, 08:53:10 AM
  • Vegan Jughead: I don't think Moose and Midge are dead.  I hope not.  It's one thing to kill Jason Blossom.  Killing two characters who have been around for 68 years is something else entirely.

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.
Comics!

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.
