  • The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

    Holy Moley, Greendale must be in Maine because this reboot is channeling Stephen King as hard as it possibly can.

    Satanists, Human Sacrifice, Monsters and more.

    It seems based pretty heavily off the comic, which was wildly dark, they've said it was the main inspiration. Lots of Satanism and dark magic. Very good series it looks like they're doing it justice, but for further seasons who could say.

      Loyalty to the comic story is all fine and good, but Does Salem talk?

        He does in the comic, being a familiar.

        But! The last I heard about the show, Salem doesn't have as big of a role, apparently the actress who plays Sabrina is allergic to cats.

        Checked an article it doesn't look like he talks.

              Huh. Looks like the comic was pretty successful, if it got adapted.

              Don't know how accurate the show will be to the comic, given what I've seen here. But I'll keep my eyes on this nonetheless.

                I loved the 90's tv show, so this much darker version is going to be weird.

                  I enjoyed the first episode! It won't be everyone's cup of tea, but it's definitely mine. It doesn't have the same sense of humour Buffy did, but it leans into the occult even harder.

                    I’m NOT a fan of Riverdale because I don’t feel like it does anything really new that other sex and murdery “teen” soaps don’t already do. It just has the shock value of putting THOSE characters in said plots. Honestly a show based on Mark Waid’s run of Archie would be comparatively more groundbreaking!

                    But this dark and gritty take is actually providing me with stuff I haven’t seen before, and I’m interested!

                    Though I do miss the sardonic animatronic cat.

                    On the second episode...
                    Zelda and Hilda being effectively Gaiman’s Cain and Abel is an interesting take!

                      On Riverdale, I really wish they did more with Reggie. They certainly don't do enough with the love triangle that's older than the parents of most of the viewers. They just threw it out. 'You're with her, you're with her, that's how things are.'

                      Ahh Michelle Gomez and Richard Coyle, love them both. Coupling and Green Wing got me through some tough times.

                      Really surprised Bronson Pinchot popped his head up to do this since he's been playing Where's Waldo with the IRS.

                        I'm enjoying this show, glad it did not disappoint me. I like that it goes dark, gritty and heavier on the occult side but knows how to dose it well. And it's nice to see Kiernan Shipka as Sabrina.

                        Thought the exact same thing!

                          I got very much Beast: The Primordial feel from pilot episode - I see so much I created separate topic for analogy between BtP and series. Great show, especially for Halloween!
