Riverdale Recap and Review – Season 1 – Episode 7, by Andrew Buckley
That 50’s style comic book opening scene with Jughead wearing his crown and Archie in the sweater with the bowtie was beautifully shot, iconically accurate, and all sorts of creepy. This is something that Riverdale does well, I’ve seen it since episode one and they’ve managed to maintain it almost every single week so far: […]

Et tu, Brute?

March 15, 2017
By Randy Attwood
It is the Ides of March and here I am blogging about building unforgettable villains. What makes a villain unforgettable? The things he/she does? Or the person he/she is? I think both.

DbC 3 and 5. Also, Villains., by Robert J Defendi writing as Bob Defendi
Last week I turned in my first chapters of DbC 5 into writer’s group. It was a bit of a hot mess, like first submissions often are, but it was a sufficiently entertaining hot mess. I’m happy with the response. We will push forward. Friday I spent about three and a half hours in a […]
Riverdale Recap and Review – Season 1 – Episode 6, by Andrew Buckley
Parental dysfunction was alive and well in this week’s episode. Add to that a healthy dose of fear, performance anxiety, adults pushing their insecurities onto their kids, and teen pregnancy,        well . . . it’s just another week in Riverdale. Right off the bat I’m going to have to admit defeat. I was wrong about […]

I was quite excited to see the blog theme for this week, as I dedicated several weeks just to looking at villains a few years ago on my blog. Over that week, I discussed several types of villains and some of the best representatives from each category. But I don’t have space for several posts […]
