  • 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.

I love the story where Reggie saved Betty from almost getting hit by a truck. And soon after they had feelings for each other. It was called One Brief Moment.

There's a good one in WORLD OF ARCHIE ANNUAL #62 - a story called "Secret Date" where Archie sees someone at Pop's sitting in a booth holding up a magazine, H.O. Quarterly, and he can't believe there's someone else into scale model railroading like he is. As he approaches to make conversation, who should be behind that magazine when it's lowered but Ethel Muggs. Archie is surprised, but they start talking about model railroading, and Ethel mentions she's going to the big Train Expo in in Midvale tomorrow. Before he realizes it, Archie's invited himself along with her.  On his way to meet Ethel the next day, he thinks "Well, this is a little weird, me going somewhere with Ethel! Well, it's not like it's a date or anything, we're just going as friends!" Then he's surprised when he rings her doorbell and Ethel answers the door, dressed to the nines, new hairstyle, makeup... the whole kaboodle. Not only does he wind up having a great time with Ethel at the Train Expo, but afterwards they spend the entire evening together, dining at a Mexican restaurant, going to a comedy club and then hitting the dance floor later on. Archie can't help but compare Ethel to Betty & Veronica, and finds his time spent with Ethel to be a lot more relaxing and fun by comparison. At the end of the story, he kisses her goodnight, but then invites her to go to a classic car show the next week. The story is credited as having been written by John Wilcox, a writer with whom I'm completely unfamiliar - this is the first story I can remember seeing credited to him.

I don't recall the specifics of the story any longer and I haven't run across it in a few years, but the gist is Betty got let down by Archie while attending a dance and in the final panel Jughead says to Betty "If there should ever come a time I'd willingly kiss a girl it'd be you" (or close to that).  It makes my heart go pitter-pat just recalling it.

I'm not sure if I'm remembering the same story or just another one where he said something similar. The situation was that Jughead was comforting Betty in one of the many cases of her being on the receiving end of Archie's typical emotional neglect, and he reveals how much he appreciates her in a rare candid moment for him. Anyway, the context of whatever the exact words were amounted to Jughead telling Betty that if he were ever going to give up avoiding girls, she'd be the one he'd do it for. Which, by Jughead standards, is like writing her a romantic love sonnet. I could swear I've seen a basically similar scenario in two or three different stories, along with a number of lesser passing admissions along the lines of "You know, Betty, for a girl, you're okay."

"Home Is Where My Heat Is", which happens to be in my gallery. It's about Ms. Grundy's apartment home being burned in a fire, and The Gang helps her out...

The story wherein a lost dog knocks on Andrews home, when Archie opens the door the dog lets itself in much to the surprise of Archie's parents which scared the poor dog. Archie's mother suggested to look for the dog's owner and hinted that Archie may get a reward for doing so. Archie daydreams of his possible rewards like a date with the dog's owner or perhaps material gains. When they reach the dog's owner's home, it turns out that the owner is a lonely old lady who can't afford to give any reward but a simple thank you. Archie concluded that it was the best reward he had received.
