  • 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.

    August 24, 2018, 05:37:39 pm
  • 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.

Poll

Does Riverdale suck more than the power of a thousand vacuum cleaners?

Yes, it does suck more than the power of a thousand vacuum cleaners.  It's a total bastardization of Archie Comics and everything it once stood for.  It should be wiped off the face of the earth.

Well, there's been a lot of discussion about Riverdale and whether or not it is a cancer on television and the Archie Comics brand.  So let's settle this democratically through a poll!

2 to 1 so far.  Bad news for people who don't think Riverdale sucks like a legion of vacuum cleaners.   ;D

A few thoughts on Riverdale...


1. The show appears to hover around a million live viewers each week. The premiere drew an audience of just above a million viewers with something like 1.3 million viewers. It hasn't reached that number again. This isn't a big audience but its just enough by the CW's low standards. As I've often said, the biggest break this show ever caught was when Fox passed it up. Had Fox scheduled it, the trigger-happy network surely would've cancelled it by now.


2. The last two weeks, the show failed to crack a million viewers with an audience of about 0.9 million. This was after a hiatus of about two or three weeks. Did this hiatus trip up the show's momentum? Was the audience so minimally invested in the show that they haven't bothered to return after the hiatus?


3. The show seems to do well on Netflix and with dvr viewers.


4. What will the show mean for the comics? Will the show draw new readers to the books? Right now it doesn't appear that this is happening. All of Archie's titles appear to be shedding readers every month with titles like Josie, Reggie & Me and even Jughead plummeting to dangerous thresholds.






Vegan Jughead

The lack of viewers is a problem but there is already going to be a season 2 and that will most likely be the last one. 


I love the show.  It's a blast.  I look forward to it all week and watch each episode multiple times because I don't catch everything in the first viewing. 


I had high expectations for the show and it has exceeded every one. 


I think the cast genuinely likes each other and it helps in the performances.

^ Let's hope the second season will be the last one!
That show is so bad and so frickin depressing. Archie comics are supposed to put you in a good mood. They are simple, funny comics. This show takes itself way too seriously and it's so dark for no good reason.

If you think this show takes itself seriously, you obviously haven't really watched it.  The reason it's hilarious is it's clear the creators are laughing the whole time.  It's so over the top it's impossible to take literally and I can't imagine many people do.

I enjoy "Riverdale". Yeah, it gets dark (more so than the comics), but there's also plenty of humor. I especially laugh at a lot of Cheryl's lines.

Also, the Blossoms made their fortune by building a maple syrup empire. A Maple. Syrup. Empire. And they have an annual tree-tapping ceremony (as YouTuber Andre calls it, "white-people $#|t"). The creators are clearly having fun with the concept and don't take it too seriously.

Also, anyone notice episode 11 is called "To Riverdale and Back Again"? Sounds like the perfect opportunity for some cameos!
