Aunt Zelda is awful. There is nothing nice about her.
The whole "being unable to read because of going blind" thing was really insensitive towards blind people. There is such a thing as Braille, you know. Blind people can read too.Also, audio books. Enough said.
It's a shame that this potentially subversive little show is going down the same road as 'Riverdale'. Two halfway decent episodes to start the first season, and now (apparently) a quick descent into cheesy, ridiculous schlock.
I can't even discuss Harvey, his over-the-top father (and, yay, another adult character) and that embarrassing spelunkaphobia D-story. Or the ham-fisted high-school banned-books plot-line with the conveniently conspiratorial librarian and the ridiculous out-of-nowhere left-turn of Sabrina's friend rapidly going blind. Sabrina's friends seem born to suffer, and rope her in via sympathy.
There's not much about this particular episode that can be discussed seriously, and I was originally quite open to this show providing a modern take on some of the feminist/social topics they seemed ready to tackle. But so many things have gone so wrong so quickly.
I don't know how I convinced myself that I should expect anything authentic or meaningful or relevant from a show that proceeded from the same schlocky source as 'Riverdale', but I guess I'm learning my lesson. Do I have the patience to continue giving this show the benefit of the doubt? Do I even bother to binge the rest of the season? These are more compelling questions than anything found in the show.
why are you people THAT pressed over a couple of characters being gay??? and by shows having lgbtq representation??? lmao, some of you really LOVE acting like queer people don't exist in some spaces...
Some random Witch yells Tramp during the court scene. Really? Haha.
By the way, I feel like the script for Sabrina was initially written for an older actress. Does anyone else feel the same?
I'm not a homophobe, but damn, I'm getting a little tired of seeing gay scenes in almost every tv show and movie.
I love a courtroom drama! The twist was very intriguing.
Parts of this were real good. I could have done with less court time. To me that made the middle drag a bit, but it still ended strongly.
Hilda and Zelda have a lot of secrets.The court drama was crazy. I like it.I still don't understand what they want to do with Sabrina.
I liked the "Death becomes her" decomposition of the Aunties
This episode reminds me of The Simpsons when Homer sold his soul for a donut.
The same solution, there was a previous contract where the property of the soul of Homer to Marge was established.
"I need you to look for a birth mark"Lol, I've seen better excuses to get naked in porn movies
And there's the must-have gay romance that's in every new show of 2018.
I like that the dude who died had an iguana as a familiar, and his warlock friend was all like, "Yeah, the were like never away from each other". (This is paraphrasing of course.) Just thought it was kind of funny just imaging in my head this dude just bringing this iguana everywhere he goes or even the iguana possibly following in a short distance everywhere the dude went.
Oprah's book club was kind of dull in my opinion. But my opinion is most likely biased considering I'm not much of a reader myself and if I had only 3 months of vision left, I'd most likely be spending that time binge watching something on Netflix. But that's obvious; otherwise I'd be commenting on some book in Goodreads.
The court session was a bit amusing. We've got good cop, bad cop aunts, with Robert Kardashian doing what they do best. Then it just got creepy and cliche when FATHER BLACKWOOD was all "We gotta strip this high school girl down 'to find a witch mark.'" (Paraphrasing again.) Like dude, you're not helping the sexual predator priest cliche, and even then, I'd like to think even Satan has some class.
In all seriousness though, this show's been pretty decent. I do appreciate how dark it can get and it has a fairly entertaining main story line. It's nice to know Sabrina's finally received her dual citizenship and I'm excited to see where it goes from here.
Hearing The Cramps makes me love it even more
Let the filler begin. I don't dislike Harvey, but I really don't care to be wasting time on his home life when we're only three episodes into the show. The same goes for Ambrose and his sex life, all of which seems particularly gratuitous and slutty here. Those two should remain in the background for now, meant to be seen and not heard unless it's to advance the main story; I definitely don't want them to be creating secondary or tertiary stories of their own at this early juncture. This is even more true given that the main story is compelling and interesting in its own right and deserves to remain the focus at this point.
Let's have the Witches Court as part of television programming. #Sabrina #Netflix #netheads #Riverdale
