Matthew Gray Gubler,
Reimagines the origin and adventures of Sabrina: the Teenage Witch as a dark coming-of-age story that traffics in horror, the occult and, of course, witchcraft. Tonally in the vein of Rosemary's Baby and The Exorcist, this adaptation finds Sabrina Spellman wrestling to reconcile her dual nature - half-witch, half-mortal - while standing against the evil forces that threaten her, her family and the daylight world humans inhabit.Written by
I was quite excited for this show, as I recall watching and enjoying the original quite a bit. In the end, it ended up being fairly disappointing for a number of reasons, though they did get a few thing right in my opinion. Anyways, the cons for this show appeared to be derived almost solely from the writing, though the acting was pretty sub par at parts and the blurry camera shots were eye straining at best, with pretty much every scene involving Sabrina at school or her friends being a mix of outright boredom or feeling completely detached from the rest of the plot and the satanic witch rituals came off a bit too over the top for me with a rather pointless insertion of cannibalism, etc. Now for the pros, I really liked the Riverdale, or perhaps Archie comics, tone and look with the setting providing a good backdrop for events, not to mention I thought making Salem silent was a good decision though they could have found more ways to make him relevant to the plot. Basically, I have seen worse witch shows recently, such as the new Charmed, however this show still came off poorly with seemingly alot of potential wasted though all the ingredients are still present so I have hope that a season 2 could be better if they learn from their mistakes.
