The episode was pretty good. Better than the first. A lot of stuff happened. Back to the binge.
Only two episodes in, and 'Chilling Adventures of Sabrina' is already starting to go off the rails.
My major criticism of this show so far is that they're sexualizing underage girls so much. Side boob in the first episode to lingerie in the second? They're supposed to be 15/16! I'm sure paedophiles everywhere will be thrilled.
A lot of comments on the show's page complain about the show featuring "feminism and politics" too much, that they don't want that in their entertainment. And as much as I hate to agree with people who find those things annoying, because you can't avoid those things, they exist everywhere - in this case the way the show features feminist issues feels too mundane and high school compared to the main plot. It also feels a little silly, like the teenage political awareness we all saw on Tumblr in 2010. And I don't think the show is saying anything new.Besides that (and some okay acting), I like how dark the main plot is with the weird satanic twist. And I love the production design and aesthetics of the show. I hope the show improves a little through this first season though.
each episode too long too slow too boring. like so many netflix shows. lucky me I don't pay much for netflix.
This episode had just about everything:Oh, the good ol' classic fingers crossed behind your back trick.We've got a biblical replay of the story of Cain and Abel with a female cast. (Abel comes back as a zombie though!)A gay orgy in a cave.A Black Phillip Voldemort antagonist."your flesh is mortal, and in the end, all mortal flesh must burn." -Yes, the classic death threat from the principal. I don't believe it was Black Phillip Voldemort talking at all. That principal just really hates women's organizations that badly.
Solid. A decision is made and all hell breaks loose, so to speak. Michelle Gomez continues to have an obvious blast as she chews on the scenery at every opportunity, and -- with the exception of Sabrina herself -- the adults are proving to be far more interesting than the young people so far in this one.
Ever notice that in TV shows and movies that have Halloween episodes, every person's family is amazingly rich, and can afford professional looking costumes, even though they'll only be worn once?
I might be speaking prematurely -- But if the dark lord really wants Sabrina, then how about going after her boyfriend?
Just a thought before watching the next episode.
Watching this and the stupid "my school has to have the books because I'm going blind" storyline one thought crossed my mind:
WTF?!? Don't you have books outside of school in the US?
My school-library was so small, I never went there - chances of finding something you wanted to read were slim to none.In my youth I went to the public library, later I bought the books I wanted to read.
The girl wears decent clothes, so one might think the parents have money to buy a few books for her daughter who is going blind...
But I guess the writers didn't have a better idea of how to make us care about "forbidden" books...
