Nice of them to get the product name in there at the end, isn’t it?
I much prefer the mention in Raines, the very good Jeff Goldblum detective series. In a recent episode, “Stone Dead”, he investigated the death of an aspiring graphic novel artist. (Start with Part Two in the video clip section if you want to see the comic store scene, filmed at Golden Apple.) The owner, played by Stephen Tobolowsky, at one point looks at Goldblum and says, “You’re freakishly tall. Why don’t you put that up there for me?”, handing him a comic to go on the top rack. Goldblum murmurs back, “You’re too kind.”
On the detective’s way out of the store, Goldblum buys a Betty & Veronica comic. The owner says, “I never figured you for a Betty and Veronica fan.” Goldblum responds, “Oh, a man can dream.”
Comic Book Resources has an interview with series creator Graham Yost that talks more about this episode (and much more). Do give the show a try, because it’s wonderful television that I’d like to see more of.
