Who remembers watching Sabrina The Teenage Witch? I do!! So when I saw this on Netflix, we just had to see it. I actually did not know that it was a part of Archie comics. When we started watching it, it certainly had the feel of Archie comics. The introduction had a comic book feel and the art style was the same as well. Sabrina, in the comics, was a lot scarier and risque. There were more adult themes in it too. They definitely watered it down significantly for TV when I first saw it.
I like this version better, apart from a few scenes. The show is scarier and perfect for Halloween. The acting is good and the story is engaging. Compared to the Haunting of Hill House, this show is more fast paced. There are also more annoying characters in this show. Then again, annoying characters add drama and people love drama!
The show is all about Sabrina Spellman, who is about to go through a ceremony on her 16th birthday, to make her abandon her mortal side and become a full-fledged witch. Sabrina struggles throughout the show with this choice because she does not want to completely abandon her friends and boyfriend. She is faced with many difficulties and challenges throughout the show. It is quite entertaining and pretty gruesome. It is not for the faint of heart.
It is a great scary show to watch and I would recommend it! I say “scary,” but it isn’t really scary. It’s just creepy at some parts of it. The writing and direction in this show is fantastic. The look of the show is perfectly dark and foreboding.
Let me know what you think of this show in the comments below. We can’t wait to see season 3!
