  • 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.

What does your username stand for?

Mine is pretty obvious. My all time favorite cartoon character is The Great Gazoo voiced by Harvey Korman from The Flintstones.

I loved the relationship between Betty & Reggie in Life With Archie. So I decided it has be BettyReggie. Those issues actually showed that Reggie had a heart.

My favorite female character is Betty. My favorite male character is Reggie. I love the idea of the two of them together, they would be good for each other. And my favorite Archie era was in the 1960s. So that's why I chose 60sBettyandReggie  :)

I could totally see 60's Betty and Reggie together. Modern reboot Betty and Reggie... not so much :)

Betty would be good for anybody. Isn't it bad enough she's set her sights low enough to fall for Archie? Reggie may be better-looking, and a better athlete, but he's got 10 times the character flaws that Archie does. Archie's merely a dweeb, while Reggie is a genuine creep. Unfortunately, Betty's kind of a pushover (unlike Harper, she's just too darn sweet and forgiving for her own good) who would soon be getting the very short end of that relationship.

If Betty set her sights on Archie any lower, her mind should be screaming "terrain", "terrain", "terrain", before crashing.  :buck2:

During the 60's when the two of them would get together to plan how to separate Archie and Ronnie it was so obvious they should forget about A&V and get together instead.

But I am one of those hopeless romantics that likes to think that Betty can definitely change Reggie (don't laugh, don't roll your eyes) from a creep to prince charming, haha, oh boy! :uglystupid2:

You know something, I never spent a great deal of time trying to figure out the whole shipping thing. All of a sudden today something dawned on me that made me see where it's coming from (in relation to the Archie characters, anyway). I just realized in a flash of understanding that it's mostly female fans who comprise the Betty/Reggie shippers, and mostly male fans who comprise the the Jughead/Veronica shippers. Now to me, these two pairings as couples seem to have absolutely nothing in common, but it suddenly occurred to me that there's more to it than just some sort of perverseness of opposites attracting or wanting to see two characters together who "shouldn't", by all surface observations of their behavior, be together.

It's that the ladies like Betty and identify strongly with her, while they feel most strongly attracted TO Reggie among the male characters, for the most obvious reasons -- he's clearly supposed to be (despite the fact that the male characters on average are drawn more "cartoony" than the female characters) the most handsome of all the regular male cast members; he's athletic, confident, dresses well, always drives a nice car, always has spending money (despite not having to have a part-time job). In short, Reggie's the most obvious male type that women would be attracted to, despite his being a rat, a creep, a fink, and an all-around rotter. This, in spite the fact that they should know better because of the severe character flaws he displays in almost every single story (unless it's a Christmas story or something like that). It's pretty true to life that a lot of women would ignore those flaws in favor of his undeniable good looks and self-confidence, figuring that deep down, there's a good guy inside that just needs nurturing and the love of a good woman to be brought to the surface. And let's face it -- there really aren't any regular cast members that can compete with him. Jughead isn't drawn to be especially good-looking, and neither is Archie, and both of them have some very serious quirks, even if they're mostly well-meaning 'nice guys'. Dilton's too nerdy and short (and maybe Chuck is nerdy too, with his comics obsession), and Moose is as dumb as a rock, so what real competition does Reggie have?  They should have kept Adam Chisholm around. He was actually perfect for Betty -- a good looking guy who was sincere and always treated her right (in fact, just like Betty, he had no real flaws). The ideal couple, really (although some would just say 'boring', I'm sure).

The same goes for the Jughead/Veronica shippers -- those guys (mostly guys) identify themselves most strongly with Jughead among the regular male cast, and are most strongly attracted TO Veronica (over Betty). Since they identify with Jughead and find Veronica more desirable than Betty, they're sure that the surface bickering between the two represents nothing more than them both fighting an obvious (perhaps deep subconscious) attraction to each other. Having the character you're most attracted to pair up with the one you most identify with fulfills a secret longing to involve yourself in the story more deeply by having one of the characters as your own alter ego.

At least I'm pretty sure that's what Trula Twyst would have to say about it.
