Hooray, animal rescue! TMM & I have a red-eared slider. Not a resdue,

@  Noideaforaname : (23 May 2017 - 03:26 PM)

@MEDdMI - Me and my teacher both had box turtles. The teach did animal rescue work, so two of her turtles were actually deformed and couldn't be released (one's shell was too large and the other's too small), so they ended up being class pets.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (23 May 2017 - 02:12 PM)

They had regular flat, cereal bowl-type molding at the bottom, so it wasn't much an issue that I can recall.

@  OrionPax44 : (23 May 2017 - 02:10 PM)

How tough is it to clean out those bowls. I'd imagine the nooks and crannies from their spines are tough areas.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (23 May 2017 - 01:47 PM)

I had two of those bowls, Michelangelo and Donatello

@  MEDdMI : (23 May 2017 - 01:46 PM)

Nice. What kind of turtles?

@  Noideaforaname : (23 May 2017 - 01:10 PM)

I had that turtle bowl too. Never did the obvious 'pretend to be Shredder and dine on turtle soup'... but that's because I had a bunch of pet turtles plus I frequently pet-sat a teacher's trio.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 May 2017 - 12:36 PM)

You ate out of a Ninja Turtle? Kinky.

@  NightViper : (23 May 2017 - 12:33 PM)

@  Xellos : (22 May 2017 - 08:56 PM)

Yeah, Tylor is awesome. One of the few series (Tylor and Escaflowne) I watched multiple times subtitled. On VHS even. Own two sets of each on DVD (or BD in 2nd Escaflowne's case). Original Tylor DVD and the remastered DVD, and both sets of dubs for Escaflowne (not counting the aborted Saturday morning edit, though I did tape that as it aired).

@  Steevy Maximus : (22 May 2017 - 08:28 PM)

Man, I'm so sad I missed so much of the mid-90s anime. The Irresponsible Captain Tylor is SO MUCH FUN!

The Decepticon MP cassettes are probably my favorite MP figures so far. Fantastic little dudes.

@  Bass X0 : (22 May 2017 - 11:23 AM)

I want a Masterpiece Blaster if only because I'm fond of the Masterpiece cassettes and want Takara to make more. They should also do Slugfest and Overkill since they were in the cartoon too, even if it was only very briefly.

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 11:21 AM)

I just want the Chip figure. The only Autobot cars I have or want are G2 Sideswipe and Hot Rod.

@  Paladin : (22 May 2017 - 11:14 AM)

Gotta get my ZacWilliam on but i dont like this. I dont mind Archie being more adult but Archie being with a teacher, the whole thing centering on a murder mystery, and the kiss between betty and veronica just to join the squad...im not feeling this at all.

I wouldve preferred a more serious but still lighthearted take

Yeah, they were very firmly going for this Twin Peaks thing and if you don't dig that direction then this show is not for you. It's not Archie as a teen drama. It's not supposed to be Dawson's Creek or the OC or whatever. It's all murder and sex and personality disorders. I'm hoping they don't go down the Afterlife route with Cheryl and Jason but we'll see.

If I have seen them before, then I must not have known their names.

 

Though, I'd need to see more of the mayor and Betty's dad to see if I do recognize either of them.

The writer of Afterlife is the producer of this so... it could go the same way? He might introduce the lesbian part too.

Whatever happened to Afterlife anyway? It's been dead in the water for a while now?

Never saw twin peaks but if this is how it looks like, that's fine.

I'm pretty sure Mrs Lodge's original name was never Hermione, haha.

Btw, Wally's Shortpacked had a strip that explained Jughead's hat. The live action hat looks like the crown edges were sewed up.

Yeah, Aguirre-Sacasa running the show is why I'm worried it will be too Afterlifey. I'm not sure what happened to the book... I think there were delays and I'm not sure whether it's been officially cancelled. That would be weird as it seemed to be really popular. Aguirre-Sacasa may have become too busy once they made him Archie's EIC or whatever big promotion he got.

It appears that Hermione always has been Veronica's mum's name. I was surprised too.

I love this show, but I would as somebody who loves dramatic high-school nonsense and has no (serious) history with Archie comic books.

 

I want Veronica to be my favorite character, but I'm kind of annoyed by how she'll at a certain way and then be unable to describe her motivations (usually the show would subtly make reference to them, but this is not that sort of show, this is a show where everybody seems to be unable to stop talking their feelings).

 

Even though this show's premise is dark, I feel like there's an undercurrent of optimism? Archie himself seems to be keen on always trying to do the right thing and most of the characters aren't outright evil, they're just ridiculously troubled (ie CW characters).

I love how Hermoine presents herself and her motives to her daughter, because it genuinely cements how Veronica felt about the move to Riverdale, in addition to her own statements about wishing to change. Like; just how much she genuinely believes that the drop in status is karmic retribution for her family's actions, but then her mother starts to pull her back in with all her smooth talk.

 

It's not a blatant as Betty and her mother, but it's just as brilliant.

Caught up. I also thought Polly would be Betty or something, but she's real.

The Jughead move came out of nowhere for me. Has he even eaten any burgers here? Or met Ethel?

I actually like Valerie a lot with Archie. I think it was in the comics for a while? It won't last on the show but it's nice. I like the Josie dad drama too (what did he not like, really?)

Hey, no Cheryl. Nice.

I have a higher-than-average affection for Archie so I was interested. But it's the CW! The channel that made Dawson's Creek and Smallville! I don't care for those. But then my friends were all "So good!" and I'm like "Hmmm maybe" but then again my friends also like Lady Gaga for some reason. So anyway, I gave it a shot. And... it surpassed the hype, by a lot. I quickly binged on it and now I want more.

 

Cheryl is so over-the-top villainous, it almost is too much. But then her parents (and Alice Cooper too) turn the villainy up to 11 making the whole show have a "Scheming adults vs well-meaning kids" thing.

 

Jughead is a great take on the character. Aww yeah Bughead!

 

Kevin feels a bit like the audience surrogate at this point.

 

Archie's "music? sports?" plotline is so boring when there's murder mystery to solve. So when he's on screen I just focus on his powerful weight-lifting eyebrows.

 

The pussycats feel a bit shoehorned in for the sake of it, but it doesn't hurt anything and the music is gooooood. 

 

Reggie is fun but disappointingly sidelined for the time being.


Woooo!
