All About Archie / Big Ethel Energy
December 07, 2021, 08:47:36 PM
Has anyone else been tuning in to Big Ethel Energy? I have, and I have to say my feelings are mixed about this series. I get and like that Ethel is being transformed from being '"the ugly joke girl who chases after Jughead" into a smart, attractive woman (and yeah, she is gorgeous here), But, I don't like what they have done with her personality and with the other characters.  Ethel was never shy, nor, I don't remember her ever being bullied by the others. If anything , Betty and Veronica tried to help her attract Jughead or other guys. In this story, Archie seems to be a loser. Even Betty doesn't want him. And Jughead is totally a jerk and unlikable. The only two likeable characters are Ms. Grundy and Moose. Anyone else have feelings about Big Ethel Energy?

Feedback/Support / Fan Fiction

Can fans still post stories in the "fan fiction" section? I noticed there haven't been any new ones added since 2019. I do have a story idea that takes place in the "Married Life" when the universe barriers were breaking down.

Hello from the Jersey Shore! And a shout out to two NJ towns mentioned in the Married stories, Bayonne and Seaside Heights! My name is Bill and I go by the name beatman10. I became an Archies fan first with the 1969 animated series. As a musician, I loved the whole Archies band concept and I still own the albums. i realize Don Kirschner was behind the band's creation. He was the same guy who started the Monkees and Don Kirschner's Rock Concert. I am definitely a Jughead fan because, for one, I played drums professionally for 30 years. I also can eat large amounts of food and stay skinny. I even like anchovy pizzas, which is one of Jughead's favorites. And yes, I am considered an oddball and was scared of girls as a teen. I realize that I have a lot to catch up on Archie comics since I only got back into them after hearing about the Married Stories. I enjoy reading the posts on this forum and I plan on posting more. Thanks!!
