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.
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
Gives homage to both Suspiria and A Nightmare on Elm Street. The living room has the same color glass ceiling seen in Suspiria (which is also about a coven of witches) and the scene with Harvey (Ross Lynch) falling asleep with headphones on and a crop top is homage to Johnny Depp's character in Elm Street.

In several episodes, Mrs. Wardwell refers to her familiar as a raven, though the beak shape and call indicates that it is a crow. See more »
Loved the original Sabrina. A lighthearted story about a witch, her goofy cat, aunts, and teenage problems. A show that you can watch any time, any episode and have fun. This version, except for the fact that the Sabrina actress looks very much like the original, has little similarities.
I can't think of any pros but i can up with tons of cons: 1) it is very slow moving, 2) Sabrina, the protagonist is an annoyong "know it all," 3) there is the Dark Lord, satanism, demons, cannabilism, hell, monsters in a mine, and other creept gross things which are all over-emphasized over the witches theme, 4) the show takes itself extremely serious, there are very few moments of lightheartiness, 5) the show is too dark!!! (And by dark i mean I can't see it! I live in the Southwest...lots of sunlight, windows, skylights, I actually can't watch the show during the day), and lastly, 6) like every show in the 21st century, it has tons conspiracies, so episodes have to be streamed consecutively.
Remember Reaper? The hilarous CW show, where the son of the devil and his slacker co-workers at Home Depot battle demons. Why can't they produce shows like that...a fun balance betwee teen angst, demons, and comedy? Everyone takes the demon demon fantasy shows so serious!!
