Storyline

Sabrina Spellman, a perfectly normal 16-year-old, is informed by her aunts, Hilda and Zelda, that she (and they, and her whole family on her father's side) are witches. She lives with them in Massachusetts while preparing to receive her witch's license. Along the way, she gets into many scrapes while figuring out how certain spells work. She also has to keep the secret from her boyfriend, Harvey, friends Jenny and later Valerie, stuck-up nemesis Libby, and her ever-suspicious vice-principal, Mr. Kraft. Written by Anonymous

Sabrina, the Cutest Witch
5 April 2000 | by (Mrs. Beach) – See all my reviews

There have been many comedy witch movies and TV shows through the years. With little exception the witch is usually cast opposite type, going for a beautiful actress in the role. From Veronica Lake to Elizabeth Montgomery to Michelle Pfeiffer beauty has worked it's magic spell. Lovely Melissa Joan Hart has evolved from the cute kid in "Clarissa" to a sexy young actress with remarkable comedic talent. Her facial expressions, delivery, and attitude make the premise enjoyable. In a day when most actresses go on a purging binge and cop an attitude that will land them a Melrose Place or Scream 2 role (and a rehab clinic...or jail), it's nice to know that the girl-next-store is enjoying remarkable success playing, of all things, a wholesome witch.

Sabrina, like Melissa, is very attractive, but accessible. Despite her magical differences she attempts to live a normal teenager's life. While trying not to stand out she also keeps her individuality in her dress, her tastes, her friends, and her morals. Trying to do that and not be an outcast is tough for witches AND mortals. Sabrina is a terrific role model for kids and enjoyable for all ages.

Now, a word about a recent magazine photo shoot that showed a sexier side of Melissa Joan Hart. I'm not going to make the obvious comment that the actress must be separated from the character she plays...well, duh! Judging any young adult, be her Sabrina the Teenage Witch or Melissa Joan Hart, one must be pleased with the judgements made so far and have some trust at this point. The photos were very tasteful and showed no more skin than we might expect to see Sabrina or Melissa wear at the pool or beach. I think what was threatening is that many people assumed Melissa Joan Hart was the cute teenager they see on television and not the beautiful adult she is in real life. Seeing her in poses and make-up not typical for a teenager was an awakening. As a young adult, there was nothing wrong with the photos and nothing parents should be concerned about their children seeing. Not only is Sabrina a lovely role model, but so is Melissa Joan Hart. She shows us how to appear sexy without being pornographic (something teen pop queens delve into frequently). Of all the photos I have seen of her, there are none that I wouldn't allow my 13-year old son to pin-up on his wall. I appreciate she is both wholesome and attractive and she has set limits.

It is wonderful to see this actress literally grow up on television, I just wished that her character was allowed to grow up as quickly as the actress herself.
