In the new Netflix adaptation of “Sabrina the Teenage Witch”, the story produces a darker and
more supernatural turn on the typical comedic story of a half-mortal and half-witch teenage
girl. Within these ten episodes, Sabrina deals with trying to maintain her mortal life and friends
while also attempting to understand her witch ancestry as well.
Personally, I felt that many of the actresses and actors were amazing actors and seemed to get
into character well. However, for some reason I have yet to understand, I cannot find myself
fully loving Kiernan Shipka as Sabrina. Perhaps it is because of the annoying tendencies of the
character itself but Ms. Shipka would not be my first choice to cast.
To get started, I genuinely did not go into this show with high hopes, as I realized it was
produced by the same person as “Riverdale”, however I persisted and fully watched the first
episode. I however was intrigued by the plot and the darker side of the show so I continued to
watch. As I watched, there were many points I was disappointed by. I did not understand her
incessant whiny attitude towards her witch powers and I found it hard to sympathize with her. I
also did not enjoy how little she actually used her own powers and always seemed to rely on
her friends to help. However, as I struck through I realized that I actually did pretty much enjoy
the show and the shocking ending was probably my favorite part of the whole ten episodes.
While I am excited for this next season, I am definitely afraid Sabrina will fall back into her
pitiful ways.
