Storyline

Sabrina has blown her allowance, and Salem has maxed out his credit card over the phone, so they decide to enter a cat show to earn the prize money, but soon find themselves wrapped up in a blackmail scheme to force the judge to throw the competition, and, to avoid being caught, Sabrina has to transform herself into a contestant. Meanwhile, Hilda and Zelda seek out a magical perfume that will make Zelda repulsive to their love-sick mailman Dirk, and Hilda gets shrunk as a punishment for taking free samples in the magical "Full Moon" shop.

A Slightly Calustrophobic Episode
24 January 2017 | by (A Beautiful Sanctuary in The Orient) – See all my reviews

As my life spirals further out of control it appears the darkness I am treading in has also engulfed the lens with which I critique this show. Zelda is a commodity to her, as is Helga, as is Salem.

As wicked as Salem is he is also terriblY vulnerable. He often has to weather the witchs with good humor. His threats are only ever of a playful nature. He knows he is in a very precarious position; only one scratch or bite away from the streets. He has had to take the role of dictator that once struck fear into the hearts of many and make it camp. How degrading it must be for him to have to pantomime the person he once was.

It is this quality of Salem's that Sabrina appears to exploit when she needs his help to win a Cat Show in order to earn money to go to some teen fancy. There is the pretense of a deal but knowing what we do about Salem's situation; is it any more legitimate than the tacit agreement a trafficking victim gives their pimp?

Sabrina comes to suspect that there may be foul play at the event. In this sense it becomes much like a murder mystery with much lower stakes. Like a murder mystery; it is crucial for the writers to get the viewer as emotionally invested as possible in several suspects. This is were the episode most lets the series down in my opinion.

Bob Barker is well played and the character is a joy to watch. The idea of a man becoming to old for the vanity of an industry that once made him is an interesting one. He is like a lot of real broadcasters. Friendly in an all too direct manner, somewhat detached from the reality unfolding around them, ceaselessly presentable, and thirsty for approval.

I enjoyed this episode though the setting, a small room with out much decor or character, does eventually begin to make the show a little claustrophobic. I felt a little like one of the crew members had put a gun to my head, was pointing to a studio light and was shouting "See that? That's the sun! Repeat after me! THAT'S THE SUN!"
