Actually, wait, what I REALLY want is a somber cover of "Sugar Sugar" by either Lorde or Halsey, whoever can make it more melancholy.

Archie and Sabrina isn't a crossover. Sabrina is an Archie character, like Josie and the Pussycats.

Except we still have twin peaks with a new season soon. How long until this is cancelled?

I feel like this might be in response to mine, in which I'm clarifying that both Archie and Sabrina have done the crossover thing in some form or fashion with Sonic, most prominently Sabrina, but I grouped them together since they're from the same world, so close enough.

So. This is like one of those "what if the Shining was a family comedy" trailer remixes, except it's for real? Unbelievable.

Judging by past CW shows, at least three seasons after it hits bottom.

Truth. Fucking REIGN got 62 episodes. I swear, they kinda hate Flash because it skewed the network's average so high that all their CBS shows looked worse in comparison and they had to kill some of them off.

reign makes sense though they were trying to ride the game of thrones bandwagon

(this should not be considered an endorsement of reign or game of thrones)

Apparently it's also being aired on Netflix.

This show is amazing. I am amazed.

I was amazed the moment Veronica Lodge threw off her wizard cloak. I was further amazed when she said "I was expecting Breakfast at Tiffanies and this place is In Old Blood", exactly like a teenager would say, and also she declared herself the agent of Cheryl Blossems reckoning. And Archie took an unexpected third choice to resolve the love triangle (Ms. Grundy)

It is all amazing.

I like how it implies Archie and Veronica may be secretly half-siblings and if not that then they'll assuredly end up as stepsiblings by the time the series is over. Which, didn't stop Serena and Dan or Marissa and Ryan

What I saw of Reign was amazing because at first it really seemed like a fictionalized progressive take on Elizabethan England with MESSAGE about the importance of women in politics and representation and religious discrimination and all that good stuff.

And then the woman they were all calling "Witch" was like WHOOPS I ACTUALLY AM MAGIC" and the guy she made alive was like "Wow I guess you were wrong about my death, NOSTRADAMUS" and NOSTRADAMUS was like "Fuck you man I'm fuckin NOSTRADAMUS and NOSTRADAMUS is never wrong" so the guy died again 2 minutes later.

And then 2 Magic Kids were magic CSI.

That was all like, less than 30 mins of the show.

Which makes it all the more galling that it's not showing up on Netflix for me. What the hell did I do to deserve such indignity?

Wasn't expecting to like Veronica Lodge in this so much.

Octoprime has Canadian Netflix. Watch it on the CW site/app.

Archie actually calls her "Geraldine" at one point which is great.

Which reminds me, this has a lot of that shit where the characters just, like, have really personal, sensitive conversations about their illicit behavior out in public - like, school dances and crowded high school hallways and shit.

Whoa, whoa, back up! I just meant how she's been de-aged in the Amazing Spider-Man and MCU movies. She's gotten younger there, but not that young...

I mean, it's stat-rape either way, so while Archie getting on with a younger Grundy might be less squicky on one level, the thought of going with a comics-accurate Grundy would be just ridiculous beyond belief -- almost to the point of humorousness, insomuch as laughing/crying while saying "I can't believe they did this" is humorous, at least.

spoiler alert: grundy was also fucking jason blossom and suspicion will be cast on her at some point because jason was planning on telling the authorities/blackmailing her and it's very convenient that she was fucking archie at the time of the murder (although no one will point out that maybe sexually assaulting a minor isn't a good alibi to have if you're having another minor murdered for threatening to go to the police). in the end though jason's death will be unrelated to any of the main characters, because you can't have a season 2 if one of your leads is behind bars!
