Obligatory: they seem to have made a real show out of this years-old Youtube joke trailer.

The CW got viewers and sold ads and made money off of Smallville. They're sending the bucket back to the well, fishing around for a little more cash.

i haven't watched it but i don't get what's weird about it, "CW teen drama" seems like probably the most fitting modern-day application for archie

Smallville didn't turn a dopey COMIC comic into a soap, tho

also no boys as lovely as Wooden Tom Welling on this, i'd bet

I basically agree with the standard uk line on archie which is "wtf is archie" but lmao at the lazy twin peaks "nods" in this particular year

it's a moderately diverting teen-goth-whodunnit with the added hilarity of it being based on a famously wholesome comic-book

if you’re not feeling it after 7 or 8 episodes of s1, i would say s2 is only going to offer more of the same of whatever you’re not into

one month passes...

Almost caught up, my random thoughts:

  • These kids never have any homework to do. You see them in class, but no one is ever teaching them anything. This high school is awesome.
  • Archie is so dumb. He's incapable of focusing on more than one thing at once. I have to focus on football! I have to focus on music! I can't possibly do both! It's a good thing he doesn't have any homework. I have a math test and a history test! I can't possible study for both!
  • Archie is the only one of the core cast that acts like a high school kid. The rest are essentially adults.
  • I LOVE all the moms. Especially the more terrible they get.
  • Luke Perry has aged well.
  • "Betty's ponytail is iconic and beyond reproach!"
  • Cheryl and Veronica's dance off.
  • I really liked ep 2:3. Good character development for Kevin. A lot of times he’s just a bit of comic relief, but they did a good job in this ep of giving him some more depth. Also the very sweet conversations he had with his dad and moose.
  • lol let's have a street race
  • lol jingle jangle
My definitive character ranking:
  • Cheryl
  • Betty
  • Veronica
  • The moms (mom ranking: Alice, Hermaninie, Penelope, Sierra, Mary)
  • Kevin
  • The Pussycats
  • Moose
  • Jughead
  • Fred
  • Reggie
  • Sheriff Keller
  • FP
  • Everyone else
  • Archie
  • Archie's music

And I totally didn't realize it was a new Reggie. I thought s1 Reggie just got a good makeover with a better haircut.

Forgot Tony Todd in my character ranking. Somewhere in the high middle.

How did Penelope recover from her 3rd degree burns so quickly? That should have taken months or longer to heal. That is my burning question.

what do we think of jughead as the omniscient narrator?

kinda weird but i enjoy it

like how does he know all these things yet is so busy with the serpents, writing a book, spending time with betsy, and still manages to sleuth around and know everything

infinity (∞), Friday, 29 December 2017 17:26 (three weeks ago) Permalink

i like jug but he is runnerup in dumbness
his bookishness is just a good cloak for baaaaad decision making

like that peppermint patty lawyer stunt with the cutting off the tattoo DONT U COME BACK HERE NO MORE

it’s like college degree level dumbness but it’s still AS dumb as anything archie has pulled

Squeaky Fromage (VegemiteGrrl), Friday, 29 December 2017 17:44 (three weeks ago) Permalink

i like him as narrator though
kind of a corny sam spade vibe or something

the cutting off the tattoo scene seemed a bit much! like i know jugg is supposed to have bit of edge now he's a serpent but slicing off a layer of flesh off a woman's arm with a knife is kind of fucked

Not sure why Archie is wrestling. He can barely handle playing football and his other interests. Don't start another sport Arch.

as i said on twitter, if Archie doesnt wrestle Reggie I will throw my tv out the window. i’m counting on u Gregg Araki
