What is with folks wanting everything darker and edgier? Archie is family friendly and doesn't need to get darker. "Life with Archie" was ok, though didn't like how certain characters became, but aside from the Weird Mysteries cartoon, Archie doesn't need to be darker or edgier? Remember "Baby Blues"? Making that edgier is why that only lasted one season, and the creators hated it.

So are we expecting a Desperate Housewives-type weird, or an Eerie Indiana-type weird? Because I prefer the latter.

And this is one time where relationship drama is called for. Betty vs. Veronica would be badass.

Pssh, this is nothing. I'm waiting for Blue's Clues: Curse of the Wereblue. "They never got any clues for this one."

Can we get some Alexis/Krystle Dynasty level cat fight action going on?

Wait, live action? Live action darker Archie?

I'm pitching an hour long drama to networks called "Dark and Edgy".

It's just gonna be one sheet with that title on it and I will sit back and watch them fall over themselves to give me money for it.

I`m coming to the conclusion that anytime Hollywood decides to adapt or reboot something,they automatically declare it must be dark and edgy.

"Hey,boss...we got the rights to Romper Room.What should we do with it?"
::studio or network boss looks up from reading copy of Variety::
"Make it dark and edgy."
"Will do,boss."

It's Fox. They'll order a pilot, order it to series, then get bored and dump it after eight episodes or so on.

That said: the guy behind Afterlife with Archie is writing the pilot. I'm not even sure what to think about that juxtaposition.

Still with this? Sleepy Hollow found a crowd. Gotham has impressed the hell out of them. Brooklyn Nine-Nine's actually earning award nominations as it goes.

Fox only pulls the plug when WE give them reason to pull the plug.

I live in Wilmington NC where Sleppy Hollow is being filmed. Tons of my friends who work at Screen Gems are terrified that this show will get the ax depending on how and who people vote for as the Movie Incintives are up in the air depending on this election. The city lost "Revolution", it got relocated to Texas.... And then got Canceled. There are always tons of reasons for a production to go under.

Oh, I get that. Fastlane was canceled simply because it was too expensive. I'm just extremely tired of the endless "Fox hates us" mantra, when it's really the other way around. I mean, Fringe lasting five seasons is something even Fringe fans know was weird.

Also, Revolution got canceled because everyone got tired of the writers going in circles. >__>

Everything must get a tv adaptation, okay? And it has to be pointlessly dark and edgy, okay?

I`m still wondering how they`ll make it dark and edgy.
It`s Archie.It had a cartoon where the characters sang in a band.It`s not known for doing dark,serious stuff.I mean,it`s not like they could do a storyline where Archie is gunned down trying to protect a friend,right?


......

Oh,it`s been done.I forgot

Aw, I was hoping it died.

Well, at least people can't whine about Fox clamoring to cancel it anymore. The CW will keep a show going for decades if they can.
