As a TVD and Originals superfan I automatically go to the combo bag featuring both shows. I mean who wouldn’t love a bag featuring Ian Somerhalder or Joesph Morgan. The front features a combined image of infamous V and O intermingled. And when you lift the cover on top there is an image of Stefan and Damon Salvatore and on the bottom features an image of the Originals’ squad. The bag showcases the darkness of each show by excluding the bright colors from the bag. All of the bags are aesthetically pleasing especially the Teen Titans Go!, Vixen, and DCS LEGENDS of TOMORROW.
All of the bags have three panels of artwork, designed by Warner Bros. Worldwide Television Marketing. One side of the bag features a velcro-fastened cover flap featuring a classic show-related image that opens to show a unique show-related design and the back of the bag includes the new Comic-Con 2016 design.
I’ve been watching two new series that are spinoffs from established series that started this season. The Originals on the CW and Ravenswood on ABC Family.
The Originals is truly a stand alone that from the first episode put in their mythology, good storylines that will be strong enough to last more than one season, a cast that has major chemistry and follows the Vampire Diaries style to appeal to old fans but will still be appealing to new fans.
Ravenswood is spinoff from the ABC Family show Pretty Little Liars. My problem with the fantasy gothic show is that it assumes everyone watching is fan of Pretty Little Liars so from the opening scene it’s a bit muddled. The assume you know a lot more about the show than is explained so I felt lost from the opening scene. I saw the first commercial when watching Twisted (LOVE THAT SHOW!!!) and was mildly curious with the moody shadow supernatural vibe. It’s right up my geeky sweetspot of tv shows and I was hoping it would similar to the first season of Supernatural.
How both shows have handled being spinoffs is fascinating. If your never seen the original shows you might feel confused or lost with Ravenswood but The Originals philosophy is to map out something parallel but different that doesn’t rely on using the exact same map. Now it is a CW Show so it’s all about very pretty people, heaving bosoms, PG13 sex and has the popular sexy vampire thing going for it. While Ravenswood well in the first episode I’m not sure if it’s a haunted house, witches, ghosts or some other supernatural being. I’ll give Ravenswood 2 more episodes before cutting it lose if it doesn’t hook me.
I have to say that this years 2013 SDCC WB Bags are AWESOME!!! I am kerflunked that they have capes and am screaming at how awesome they are. I want a bag RIGHT NOW and run up and down the street with my own cape! tee hee I’m such a geek that I used to play superhero as a child in my grandparent’s backyard all the time with Halloween being every day as my favorite hero! What bag are you dreaming about getting? My heart is set on Arrow or Revolution …. hmmm The Following with Kevin Bacon would be cool too! I can’t make up my mind so will leave it up to fate. But get ready to see me flying with my cape after wednesday!
