  • Vegan Jughead: Hey but who needs Moose and Midge when you can have such prominent characters as Penny Peabody and Toni Topaz on the show?
    October 22, 2017, 10:30:03 AM
  • Vegan Jughead: Ms. Grundy would have been a total surprise but it turned out she wasn't really Ms. Grundy so I can let that go.  Killing Moose after barely seeing him last year and Midge after she was in literally one episode (and barely in it, at that) seems ridiculous.

  • 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!

  • BettyReggie: Midtown Comics has the new January 2018 Comics. I preordered mine.

  • 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.
    October 20, 2017, 08:53:10 AM
  • 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.

  • DeCarlo Rules: Or a short black actress with punky hair.  ;D

  • JonInIowaCity: Looks like each episode of season 2 will end with a murder.
    October 18, 2017, 09:55:30 PM
  • BettyReggie: Midge looked like she was wearing wig. Couldn't they get a actress with short spunky black hair?

  • DeCarlo Rules: Plus, this Black Hood seems to be an outright murderer who isn't even targeting criminals...

There was a great #Riverdale tweet tonight that went something like "Hi Midge... Bye Midge..."

The Blossom parents seemed so creepy throughout the season that I really didn't think that they would go there. I mean, they seemed a bit too obvious as potential suspects, but I was wrong.

Joaquin will probably return midway through Season 2 with Grundy at his side!  ;D

The whole Blossom/Cooper related thing didn't hold a lot of water for me. I come from a town -- a family even -- with people just as related to the spouse as Polly and Jason. It'd feel legal in any of the states. Seemed tenuous...

The comic book characters are more like templates for the TV show. At most, Polly is a year older than Betty in this TV show.

I wonder if it will be in July 2017 Solicitations? And I hope it's a comic not a digital one.


According to the article,  it will be published both in print and online.

Ah yes. "Political correctness." The term one uses to dismisss complaints of rudeness or negativity. No matter. Be as negative as you want.


Things I enjoyed about the episode:


1. The Cheryl/Veronica dance off! I like how Cheryl is losing her queen bee status. She fired Tina and Ginger. Which made me wonder: Do you think they pull a friendship salary from her? Wouldn't be unheard of.


2. Learning that Alice was once a Southside Serpent. That lady has secrets. She's also got keen instincts. She's the only one wondering why a Southside Serpent (Joaquin) would date the sherriff's son. Good question!


3. The truth or truth game was also fun at the party. It was good to get some of those secrets out in the open. And Veronica still managed to knock Cheryl down a few pegs. And good on Jughead for fighting back for Betty against Chuck!


Plus Veronica's got her pearls back again!


Fun stuff. Fun party. Looking forward to Molly Ringwald in two weeks!

I really enjoyed this latest episode. Though Molly Ringwald's contribution was too short.

Nobody will forget that you hate the show. You never quit talking about it. Stop being such a buzz-kill for those who want to discuss the show. Please. I mean, start another thread. Contribute to another thread. Talk about the stuff that you like instead of bringing down threads by others about things that they like.

I found an old copy of "Uncle Tom's Cabin" at my parents' home this weekend. It belonged to my dad when he was a young boy back in the 50s. It occurred to me that I've never read it and decided to check it out. I'll start reading it later tonight or tomorrow.

All About Archie / First Appearance of Little Kevin?
« on: April 08, 2017, 03:15:37 PM »
I was just reading the LITTLE ARCHIE AND HIS PALS one-shot comic book and noticed Kevin Keller in it.


So was this the first appearance of Little Kevin in Archie Comics?

The big news today is that "at least one major Riverdale resident" is going to be killed off in Archie #20 and the identity of that character will be revealed in Archie #21.

Archie #20 will feature a drag race between Archie and Reggie on Dead Man's Curve. In #21, the people of Riverdale will learn that someone will die in that drag race!!

Will it be Archie Andrews? Maybe Kevin Keller wanders onto the street and Archie jumps out his own vehicle to save his friend from death!!

Will it be Reggie Mantle? Maybe Riverdale's resident bad-boy will swerve to avoid Hot Dog or Vader and hit a tree!!

Or maybe one of them will hit another Riverdale regular!! Moose... Midge... Dilton... Jason... Cheryl... Jellybean... Mr. Weatherbee... Ms. Grundy... Mr. or Mrs. Andrews...

Who do you think will die in this upcoming storyline?

Personally, I think it would be more of a game-changer in multiple ways if one of the boys lost a parent (or both) as a result of their drag race.
