Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is Deliciously Wacky

You know, when you’re half mortal and half witch, sometimes your life gets complicated. Sometimes you’re fighting to get banned books brought back to the school during the day and at night you’re in a Hell Court because you broke a contract with Satan.

What is a girl to do?!?

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina dropped on Netflix this past Friday and I raced through it for a review I’m publishing on Monday. This isn’t a full review, but I just have to address how I am finding this world of race watching for reviews annoying. Though out the weekend I’m seeing reviews dropping and I keep thinking, “Wait, that’s now how I took that plot point at all!” (I didn’t read any until my review was complete to avoid any influence)

As reviewers we are having to ingest this material so rapidly that we can’t properly digest what we’re seeing. I’m not saying that those who have a different opinion than me are wrong, far from it. I think we are just watching so fast we can’t turn a truly discerning eye on it.

I’ll tell you, I found the show a bit wacky at points. I didn’t quite understand why witches serve Satan, yet seem to not be in league with Demons. There were definitely some logic jumps, but I rolled with them.

I think we’ve also entered this odd world where everyone thinks every show has to be the best thing on, and if it misses that mark it is somehow not worth your time. Whatever happened to just watching things for fun?

Throughout my time with Sabrina I had fun. Isn’t that all shows are really meant to do at the end of the day?

Season 2 is already filming and I personally can’t wait for it.
