New kid starts. We need to flesh out who the newcomer will be in the situation. Maybe he's the guy that works the desk, deals with the shoes. A running gag of "you don't want to know what happened to the last guy".
Bob who used to work there now just hangs out at the bowling alley throwing balls all day. If we want to keep it PG we can have him drinking root beer floats at the food counter run by the daughter of the owner.
She'll need a good name. I'll think on that.
The Devil Ron said he wants selling hotdogs there. Maybe have him in different outfits and different roles depending on the episode.
Nick O'Time is the Jughead to Bob. Not sure what to do with him. Maybe have him work behind the scenes resetting the pins, make him more the smart yet clueless type. Always in a good mood despite Bob's crankiness.
Smoke, the janitor, is always in a haze in the bathroom. The wise oracle of the group. Maybe only Bob talks to him and sees him.
Everything should seem routine, even when a creature emerges from the portal.
We need a bowling alley and an open field to shoot.
Through the new kid we can have the others fill in Bob's backstory. Bob's sort of the Fonz, but brooding. Consigned to his fate as protector he has no ambition to do anything with himself. I like the idea that he wanted to be a stand-up comedian but we can work another talent he wanted to develop but wasn't given the chance as in the original script.
If we can swing it we can do flashbacks to Bob before the powers gave him the duty. Telling stories about Bobn we see him from his friends' perspectives.
I have the first shot of Bob laid out which I'll flesh out. But this should be a good start.
Max Crash and Third Degree Burn we can work in later.
