  • DeCarlo Rules: Jughead's Time Police #1 is out next week, along with Archie & Sabrina Part 1 (#705). Looking forward to the former, while my interest in ARCHIE has waned since #700... I guess I'll still read it just to see what they do with Sabrina, but the plot already seems too padded-out for my liking.

  • DeCarlo Rules: Collectively, it seems like they've put out more horror titles than anything else since cancelling the classic ARCHIE and B&V titles, Maybe it's just easier to do those than to come up with a new spin on an all-ages Archie title.
    May 31, 2019, 06:28:42 pm
  • DeCarlo Rules: @ darkmark -- That's the unavoidable conclusion, based on the fact that since AFTERLIFE WITH ARCHIE and CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA went M.I.A., ACP has been working overtime to keep new horror titles coming down the pipeline. First JUGHEAD THE HUNGER, then VAMPIRONICA, then BLOSSOMS 666,...

  • Vegan Jughead: Afterlife With Archie and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina were excellent I thought and I'm not a horror fan. The subsequent horror titles haven't grabbed me as much.

I was watching Grease a few moments ago. But now some friends and  I are tuning into our local hockey game. We're 2 points down. But there's still time.

I'm watching Eyewitness. I loved it so much during the run I thought I'd rewatch it! It's a show about two gay boys who witness a triple homicide. It's very intense. Though it gets more and more colorless every time I see it. I hate this desaturated culture we live in.

I've been watching Brooklyn 99! I would definitely recommend it to anyone it's a really fantastic show. Believable dialogue, wonderful comedic timing, and VERY well developed characters.

Been re-watching Smallville with my roommates. I was really active in the smallville fan forums back in like 2002 but I never realized what a mess all the characters were until now. Honestly I'm glad my high school years weren't so dramatic and catty  :buck2:

I've been binge-watching SCOOBY-DOO: MYSTERY INCORPORATED, trying to get through a single DVD disc (6-7 half-hour episodes) a day. It's been pretty addictive (this is the first time I've seen any of these) and amazing on so many levels: the writing, parody/satire, characterization, ongoing subplots. There are so many interesting things about this show, whether you admit to being a fan of Scooby-Doo or not. I always liked the general premise of the original cartoon, but the writing was pretty bad and it was repetitious, and it was hard to sit through viewing multiple episodes without getting quickly bored. This rebooted version of the show is obviously aimed at an older audience. It's smart writing, and not only that, there's an ongoing mystery that links all the episodes together. As the seasons progress, there are lots of new characters introduced. Some of them are ongoing, while some of them return unexpectedly in much later episodes. There's both comedy and drama in the series, with the levels of danger, action, tension, and scariness being slowly ratcheted up as the seasons progress, and the ongoing mystery being slowly revealed as more and more complex. They do a lot of plotting where it sets up an obvious suspect to be behind each episode's mystery, but the obvious suspect invariably turns out NOT to be the perpetrator. And the monsters actually get quite scary as the episodes progress (even though you know that there has to be a scene in the end where a rubber mask gets pulled off to reveal the villain). At least they're scary in the context of a cartoon, and what's happening at that moment in the episode's plot. The animators came up with some impressive monster designs, and lighting, camera angles, and animation timing are all used to good effect, as are vocal and sound FX. Sometimes the monsters or ghosts are so impressive that the inevitable explanation at the end of the episode seems a little implausible. Then there is the ongoing romantic tension between Daphne and Fred, Velma and Shaggy, and even Scooby and... that goes through many twists and turns over the course of the series. I could probably write a few thousand more words on several of the specific episodes - it's that good.

I might watch this even though I'm not that into Scooby Doo. I need some more comedy.


I've just been watching random movies on Netflix: Blackfish, Naomi and Ely's No Kiss List, GBF.

I finished re-watching friends, now I'm watching Joey (the sequel show) for the first time.... not as good  :(
