  • Fernando Ruiz: I don't know where the idea originated for the "Archie meets Archie" story. I know one day Victor Gorelick gave me the assignment to write a story where the current Archie meets the first appearance Archie. It was going to be for a digest celebrating whatever anniversary they were celebrating. That.

  • Mr.Lodge: The first batch of "Memory Lane" stories were the best but were never given the chance to "conclude" properly. The 10th Anniversary one are total crap.....

  • DeCarlo Rules: Nice to establish that. I forgot about that Twilight Zone episode! But of course, the phrase "a stroll down Memory Lane" is a familiar euphemism, so TZ took that as a literal plot device. The Memory Lane stories were the beginning of a fertile period for ACP, idea-wise.
    November 16, 2019, 05:05:30 am
  • Fernando Ruiz: Responding to the comments for the "When Archie Meets Archie" review, the idea for "Memory Lane" was mine. I borrowed it from an old Twilight Zone episode and thought it was a nice convenient device for the story.

I'm currently watching Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. I'm on Episode 6, and I am really enjoying it. I honestly could have binge watched the entire series over the weekend, but I'm trying to stretch out the series a bit. I need to reread the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina comics (c. 2014 - ), as I believe they were even darker than Netflix's version, but the series is far closer to its comic version than Riverdale is to Archie Comics. Riverdale is definitely a guilty pleasure, and I see it as a different universe, as its loosely based on the characters.

And I love that both series incorporate a few Easter eggs or references for fans. For example, Sabrina carries a vintage Archie Comics thermos in Episode 1 and a poster of Archie's Madhouse can be seen in Harvey's bedroom in Episode 5 or 6 of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.

Oh, so the story is set during the 1960s like in the comic book?  8)

It definitely seems like it, but there are a few references that make me wonder if it is set in the present. Check out What Year Does Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Takes Place? on CBR.com for more information.

Tonight I'm going watch Honey & Clover - Season #1 - Disc #2

rusty

I got tired of waiting for Into the Badlands to come back from hiatus, so I went ahead and watched the first 8 episodes from season 3 that have been sitting on my dvr.  They were enjoyable, though maybe not quite as much as the first two seasons.  They do set up an interesting second half of the season.  I also liked the teases as to what happened to cause the breakdown in society.

I also watched the first episode of the new Doctor Who series.  It is only one episode, but I liked Jodie Whittaker as The Doctor.  I plan to watch the next four episodes tomorrow.  It is a short season with only 10 episodes so it will be over in another 5 weeks.

Not yet, but it probably is only a matter of time.  It doesn't matter to me as long as the stories are entertaining and the actor does a good job.

At some point it seems like the Doctor should be a little kid, too.

NUIGULUMAR Z
Gothic Lolita Battle Bear



Quote"Gothic lolita fashion enthusiast Yumeko Ayukawa, nicknamed Dameko, possesses the ability to merge with her talking pink teddy bear Buusuke to form Nuigulumar, a sexy leather-clad superheroine. Using her furry nunchucks, she must battle evil villain Takeshi, his psychic subordinate Kill Billy and a horde of 109 zombies, the highest number of the undead ever seen in a Japanese film.


https://www.youtube.com/embed/4xe_PkEiVO4

Not yet available in an English-subtitled version, but desperately to be hoped for. The film stars Rina Takeda, a Japanese actress, singer and black belt in Ryukyu Shōrin-ryū Karate. Wow, were ever so many popular Japanese tropes crammed into a single film? Magical girl. Goth/loli. Martial arts. Tokusatsu hero. Zombies. And something for the furry fans.

Hearts Beat Loud (2018) - Frank Fisher owns a record store that is about to close.  His daughter Sam is about to leave New York to attend college at UCLA.  Frank has been raising his daughter alone since the death of her mother in a cycling accident years earlier.  The two start collaborating on a few songs and Frank wants them to form a band, even though she is leaving soon.  This is a very nice comedy/drama with plenty of good father/daughter moments

URUSEI YATSURA ("Those Obnoxious Aliens") - I've known of the existence of the manga (published by Viz) since it started in the U.S. in 1989, but never really followed it. There was a long gap between the first 8 floppy comic-sized issues of LUM Urusei Yatsura and The Return of Lum (which became the new title) in 1994, at which point the series continued on, collected in 9 TPBs (from 1994-2000). Those TPBs condensed material from only the first 11 (of 34 total) Japanese volumes, skipping some stories. Viz is about to start re-publishing the manga in a newer, more complete English translation beginning in February 2019, which is what prompted me to do a little internet research on this series.

Unknown to me, the entire anime series adapted from the manga (195 episodes plus 6 movies and 12 TV specials and OVAs, originally released from 1981 through 1991 in Japan) had been released earlier on DVD in North America by AnimEgo (a company now since defunct). 150 of those TV episodes, movies or OVAs (in Japanese with English subtitles, exactly as released on DVD by AnimEgo) have been uploaded by someone to YouTube >> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T82cfApNUDk&index=1&list=PLft-ctSdHsae8iJGm0pJDXNRpVQwTu2Ja

It's a fun series. It concerns a lecherous high school student named Ataru Moroboshi who is randomly selected as Earth's champion by the invading aliens known as Oni (which means a demon or devil in Japanese). Ataru isn't interested in being anyone's champion, but changes his mind when he sees that his opponent is the attractive alien princess Lum -- a horned, green-haired teenage cutie wearing a yellow-and-black-striped bikini and boots. (All the Oni seem to wear some sort of yellow-and-black-striped clothes.) To win for Earth, all Ataru needs to do is succeed in a kind of game of tag, by grabbing Lum's horns within the 10 days of the contest. She can fly though, and immediately and easily eludes him for almost the entire 10-day period. Ataru finally cheats by firing a rubber suction-cup arrow at Lum's bikini top, yanking it away. When she reacts in shock by covering her top with her arms, Ataru pounces upon her and grabs her by her horns. Ataru is relieved because now that Earth is spared from the alien Oni invasion, he'll be a hero and can marry his high school sweetheart Shinobu. Blurting out his happiness, "Now I can get married!", he's heard by Lum and she takes it to be a proposal of marriage to her, and immediately falls in love with Ataru. Now she won't be dissuaded from her pursuit of her "Darling", as she calls him, while Ataru is now in hot water with Shinobu whenever Lum is around (which is always, as she eventually comes to live with him, and enrolls as a student in his school, as well). She also has with her an annoying, mischievous toddler cousin named Ten, and a jealous ex-boyfriend named Rei in hot pursuit -- a guy so handsome that all the girls that see him (including Ataru's mom!) immediately fall for him, even though his manners are atrocious and he turns into some sort of giant tiger-like monster whenever he gets mad.

The series seems to feature a never-ending stream of delightfully-weird happenings to keep things lively. It's Archie-like in the sense that Ataru is kind of a hapless shlub with a roving eye for the ladies (but otherwise not a bad guy), caught in the middle of two girls fighting over him (or getting mad AT him), so it's romantic triangle time.
