Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (TV Series) Season 1 Review

I really liked the old TV series Sabrina the Teenage Witch back in the 1990’s. It was based on a long-running Archie comic series. This one is much different, and way darker in story. It’s based on a updated comic spinoff of the Sabrina tales of the same name, and apparently was originally going to be on the CW alongside with Riverdale (which is from Archie comics too) but Netflix picked it up instead. Netflix actually released the season in two parts.

The story starts with Sabrina Spellman on her 16th birthday. She thinks she’s just a normal girl, in a plain town, with a cute boyfriend and some good pals. However her aunts Zelda and Hilda have something important to tell her. She’s really the daughter of a normal human “mortal” and her father was really a warlock. Obviously this takes a toll on Sabrina’s life, as being a half-witch isn’t easy.

She isn’t given a warm welcome in the land of witches and warlocks. Most hate her for being half-mortal. Sabrina gets upset when the high priest Father Blackwood tells her to sign a unholy book which pledges her soul and freedom of choice to Lucifer Morningstar, better known to mortals as Satan. Things get dangerous for her when she vows not to sign it.

Pulling Sabrina’s strings without the half-witch knowing is Lilith, Adam’s first wife in the Garden of Eden. She had been saved by the Dark Lord all those years ago, and she often serves as his best subordinate. There’s something special about Sabrina, something that nobody in either “world” knows. Lilith makes it her recent goal to make sure Sabrina Spellman fulfills her destiny as a bridge between worlds.

Overall I really liked this new version of Sabrina. I heard many didn’t like Part 2 of season 1 as much as they did the first. I was the reverse, as I thought the last half of this season had a much better story, though it kind of forget it’s in the horror genre with Part 2. Netflix was really wise to have snatched it from the CW.

Score: B+
