  • DeCarlo Rules: Presumably with an ongoing B&V series, they'd want to keep it nominally in continuity with the ongoing ARCHIE title.

  • DeCarlo Rules: Oh, I hadn't noticed that the story is "Senior Year", so that explains it. It's a one-off story arc, just like "Freshman Year". They're not going to keep them as seniors permanently, or have them graduate and go on to college in an ongoing series.

  • DeCarlo Rules: Probably just a space-filler while they look for a better writer than Jaime Rotante. I hope.

  • 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.
    August 27, 2018, 03:19:15 pm
  • 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.

All About Archie / Re: Riverdale TV Series
« on: April 30, 2016, 12:29:11 pm »
Why the hell are they turning Melody black?  Valerie is in the cast list, so why change Melody's race?  Really getting fed up with race changing when casting comic characters.  Leave them alone and don't change characters that have been around probably longer than anyone assoicated with the show has been.
It definitely doesn't look like this show is aiming to be anywhere near the traditional Archie Comic style and that seems to have a lot of people up in arms.

The thing about Archie is that everyone and their mother knows him heard of him or read a comic once in there life archie is the most famous comic book character that isn't a super hero. There is no need to change thing around to build a larger demographic because we all know the gang and Expect to see them how we remember them.
This show is going to confuse people and could even detour parents from showing there kids archie if they are all going to be meth heads.
I haven't heard the Meth Heads yet, but it wouldn't surprise me because the teen drama shows on today have at least one character it seems doing some sort of drugs.


You need to read this whole thread so you'll see the absurd things they are planning on doing with that show. Meth heads, Archie sleeping with Miss Grundy, Betty addicted to drugs, etc, etc,etc.

Are they really planning all that?  The race swapping is bad enough but this sounds like this series wants to be as "un-Archie-ish" as possible and will be a disaster to long time fans.

Actually, Veronica was new to Riverdale in the original comics from the 40s as well.  Archie started originally with him, Betty and Jughead.
