  • 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.

  • 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.

Riverdale episode 7
« on: March 10, 2017, 03:49:06 PM »
My thoughts:

LOL at Veronica's way of handling her mom.

Yay for underage drinking.

How'd they get in the club? Do they all have fake IDs?

What did Penelope and Cheryl say in their short scene together? I couldn't hear it.

What's Cheryl's deal? She's back on her whole "Psycho bitch Polly killed Jason" theory. What happened to "If Jason hurt Polly, I'm sorry"?

I did like how Cheryl got the River Vixens back, even though she threw Polly under the bus to do it.

Betty could have avoided this whole awkward situation if she'd simply gone to Cheryl with her info last week. (I seriously don't get why Cheryl wasn't in that episode.) I know Betty says "I don't trust you", but that's after Cheryl texted everyone with her "Polly killed Jason and torched the evidence" theory.

So Betty got to hear her parents flat-out lie to her face. Polly wants to give up the baby. Suuuuuure. She knows she can't trust her parents, which is likely why she met with the Blossoms after Cheryl offered to help.

Buuut it seems Betty can't trust the Blossoms either. Bravo for Cheryl coming and warning Betty. Now Cheryl will have to deal with her parents. Probably "Betty and Polly chickened out and didn't show" or whatever.

What made Cheryl doubt her parents' sincerity? Not that she needs any specific reason to mistrust them after 16+ years in that house, but I'm curious.

That's a very nice Polly/Cheryl moment. I love how Cheryl's nervous, but then Polly takes her hand and places it on her belly.

Penelope was right about one thing: Betty is family now (in a roundabout way). Betty and Cheryl are bonded by a common niece/nephew. This child will one day call each of them "aunt". They need to be there for her/him. Also, Cheryl is now, essentially, Betty's boss again. It really would be to their mutual benefit to become friends and stop this stupid "feud".

LOL at Cheryl's face after Penelope's line to Betty. What was she reacting to? The idea that she and Betty are now family or Penelope's "protect you ferociously" line?

Finally, with this episode, "Riverdale" reaches an important milestone: it surpasses "The New Archies" in total running time (7 one-hour episodes versus 13 half-hour episodes). This makes "Riverdale" the third-most successful incarnation of the Riverdale gang on TV.

Episode #7 was great. Betty & Jughead seemed to be a couple now because they really care about each other. And they were holding hands while walking in the rain. That was my favorite part.

But Andre Black Nerd made an interesting point in his review: Betty didn't talk about Jughead as her boyfriend. She said stuff like "He was there for me." This might be an indication that she might no longer desire to be with him once she's out of her low place.

I knew it!!!
I knew jugheads dad was going to be involved.

And good point tuxedo mark about Betty's feelings about jughead!

I dont really have any theories from this episode
Aside from at one point thinking maybe Cheryl might want to be Jason's and pollys childs guardian

Poor Jughead. He's doing the best job finding Jason Blossom's killer and that idiot Sheriff tries to arrest him! And man, Keller, can't you at least wait until class has started or the end of the day before you drag some kid out of Riverdale High?

I haven't watched Sugar Coat's reactions (though I'm aware of them), but two other reactors are ComicKairi (an Archie Comics fan) and Shipperfeels (two sisters that know nothing about Archie but like the show).

  I thought it was much too serious.  The pregnancy bit is over the top.  Also, the adults were very involved and I think they should really be in the background.

I laughed out loud at a bunch of it, but I'm laughing at it and not with it sometimes. 


The adults are all morally challenged and to me that's what's so cool about the show.  The kids are basically trying to be good people (Archie boinking his teacher excepted), and the adults are corrupt, just like real life!
