Chilling Adventures of Sabrina cast a magical spell on Netflix!
December 18th, 2018 under Archie Comics, Netflix. [ Comments: none ]

When Netflix announced that they were remaking Sabrina the Teenage Witch, I thought they were spitting on our childhood. Turns out that Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is so much better than the original. Mostly because Kiernan Shipka is just so gosh darn likable as Sabrina Spellman.

This show is honestly one of my top 10 favorite shows of the year because it was such an interesting and well-done twist on the story we already know. I am not the only person who loves it, so many others do. Lots and lots of other people. How many? We don’t know.

What we do know is that Netflix picked up the show for season 3 and 4 before the second season even begins airing on April 5th. Talk about believing in a show. That or the witches put a spell on Netflix and they had no choice. Hmmmm, I like my latter theory better.


BTWF: Ryan Reynolds in Sabrina the Teenage Witch movie
November 27th, 2018 under Archie Comics, Before They Were Famous, Ryan Reynolds. [ Comments: none ]

Before Ryan Reynolds was the coolest guy on campus in Van Wilder, he was the same way in high school in Sabrina the Teenage Witch movie. I forgot how cute and dorky he looked when he was just 19 in that 1996 telemovie.


Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is better than Sabrina the Teenage Witch
October 26th, 2018 under Archie Comics, Netflix. [ Comments: none ]

When I heard Netflix was doing their version of Sabrina the Teenage Witch by the people who destroyed the Archies aka Riverdale (where I grew up), I was very against it. Then when I saw the first few trailers for Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, I hated it even more. Then they released one more trailer (the one above) and I was suddenly curious about the remake.

After watching all 10 episodes from the first season, I am in love. This is a much darker version of the show we grew up with, but it works, It really works. Largely because Kiernan Shipka is just so gosh darn lovable as Sabrina Spellman. She plays her character with the perfect amount of innocence in a not so innocent world. A world where witches and mortals don’t really interact.

Except for Sabrina’s parents. Her father was the high priest of witches and her mom was mortal. When she was a young girl, her parents were killed and she was raised by her aunts Zelda (Miranda Otto) and Hilde (Lucy Davis). Zelda is an old school witch (that rhymes with bitch) and does everything by the book. Hilde is more modern.

Sabrina’s dad was unconventional and tried to change things for the better. Her mother was mortal. With all of that influence to shape her as a person, she is a mix of it all. Since she grew up in the mortal world and was raised by witches, she is torn between both worlds.

For her sixteenth birthday, she has to decide witch, I mean which, world she wants to live in. Which will she choose? There are consequences with both. A decision she will not take lightly and she will have to make compromises. Throwing her life into mayhem.

As she tries to live in both worlds, she will try to make changes to the old world order. That will be met with conflict from the leaders. Conflicts that will put her, her family and her friends into danger. She will also try to use her new powers to help her mortal friends. She does not know how to use it yet. When she does something very dark to save her boyfriend Harvey (Ross Lynch), she will put his life at risk. She will also cause him to do something that will change the way he looks at her forever.

Like I said, it is not the show we grew up with. It is so much better. My only complaint is that Salem doesn’t talk. That is it! Everything else from the stories to the casting to show itself is perfect as is!


BTWF: Kiernan Shipka for Mighty Milk
October 25th, 2018 under Archie Comics, Before They Were Famous. [ Comments: none ]

Before Kiernan Shipka got her powers from being a witch in the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, she got them from drinking Mighty Milk. How awwwwdorable was the 7-year-old in that 2007 commercial?


Lili Reinhart and KJ Apa go all Beverly Hills, 90210 in front of Luke Perry
October 10th, 2018 under Andy Cohen, Archie Comics, Beverly Hills 90210 / Melrose Place, KJ Apa, The CW. [ Comments: none ]

Riverdale stars Luke Perry, Lili Reinhart And KJ Apa were on Watch What Happens Live and Andy Cohen asked the younger stars to recreate that iconic Brenda and Dylan break up scene from Beverly Hills, 90210’s second season premiere. Want to feel old? Neither of the younger two was born when that scene aired.

Anyways, how did they do? It was a valiant effort, but not as great as the original. Nothing will ever be as good as when Brenda dumped Dylan in that car on the beach.

Now let us talk about how much Apa looks like TV dad when he was on the teen drama? Isn’t it scary how much they look alike?

Finally, forgot how awesome that 90210 scene was, then click here!
