An anthology series centering on different characters and locations, including a house with a murderous past, an insane asylum, a witch coven, a freak show, a hotel, a possessed farmhouse, a cult, and the apocalypse.
James is 17 and is pretty sure he is a psychopath. Alyssa, also 17, is the cool and moody new girl at school. The pair make a connection and she persuades him to embark on a road trip in search of her real father.
Convicted of a decade old crime of transporting drug money to an ex-girlfriend, normally law-abiding Piper Chapman is sentenced to a year and a half behind bars to face the reality of how life-changing prison can really be.
Reimagines the origin and adventures of Sabrina: the Teenage Witch as a dark coming-of-age story that traffics in horror, the occult and, of course, witchcraft. Tonally in the vein of Rosemary's Baby and The Exorcist, this adaptation finds Sabrina Spellman wrestling to reconcile her dual nature - half-witch, half-mortal - while standing against the evil forces that threaten her, her family and the daylight world humans inhabit.Written by
The acting is okay, not anything amazing, but the script is not great. The reactions from people do not seem genuine at points, while at other points they are spot on. The camera blur is a bit overdone at points and looks distorted rather than a cool addition to the cinematography. If you can get past this, the show is beautifully shot and the CGI is good most of the time, but at other points, it seems unpolished. The comedic relief isn't great, but it does help at points in the show. Overall the show is inconsistent with regards to most things except the acting which is about average or above average throughout the whole show. One major problem with the script I have is how political ideas are peppered throughout the show that don't add much value. Another problem is that most of the characters seem paper thin because of the lack of development throughout the show. I can't say the characters all feel this way, as Sabrina doesn't, but a lot of characters are cliches without real depth. Overall, it's not a terrible show, but it's certainly not good. It has it's ups and it's downs, but the show is, again, inconsistent. It is definitely not better than the original.
