    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.

    The show doesn't really make an effort to show actual Satanism. It's basically used as a parody and satire of Christianity. I think it's a pretty effective and humorous satire, but that's obviously a matter of personal taste. I would probably be offended if I had a religion and someone used the name in order to satirize another religion.

    Yeah, the Church of Satan seems to really not like the Satanic Temple. At all.

    It seems to be mutual, too, as far as I can tell...

    The Church of Satan had an interesting take regarding the matter of the lawsuit. They had a previous statement regarding the show itself here, which specifically gets what they think about the show.

    Baphomet, though not necessarily the Temple's version of them, has played a key role in my spiritual belief system and religious practices for more than 20 years. Personally, I find this move by the show (that I'd originally intended to watch every second of) to be tasteless and regressive at best. I'm out. I was excited about this show, too.

    ~sigh~

    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!

    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!

    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 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...

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