  • 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.

  • 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.

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!
