QUACKCAST 163 - Hip to be shark!

Ozoneocean at 12:00AM, April 22, 2014


HippieVan, one of our wonderful news admins, made a newspost about the latest Archie comic sales tactic/plot device, killing off Archie, in the context of “Jumping The Shark”, and it was quite a popular topic of discussion. Jumping the Shark is the term we use for a TV Series (but it could be anything), that has reached a bit of a creative desert so the writers attempt a silly stun or the introduction of a new character or theme or something that breaks the narrative and the story dynamic, all in an attempt to re-energize the failing series. Sometimes it works, but often it's a sign that the thing is on its deathbed. And that's what Hippie joined us to talk about: Shark jumping! In the meantime, we find a shark of our own…

Oh! I hadn't read it... but now that I did, my hat's off to you. That IS pretty awesome!

It's a "jumping the shark" parody of the famously derided miscarriage scene in Tim Buckley's Ctrl Alt Dlt comic. :)

Hmmmm... I have to admit, I didn't get it!
