Happy Halloween

While some may go to movies to get their Halloween scares, for those of you who want a longer trick or treat, the best horror entertainment of the weekend comes in the form of the new ​“Sabrina: The Teenage Witch” that premiered on Netflix this weekend. I know it may seem crazy, as a lot of us may have grown up with the old Melissa Joan Hart version but as most nostalgia from our childhoods this update is very different. I’d compare this show more to “American Horror Story” than anything else but do anything but compare it to the similar “Riverdale”. Instead of glorifying the nonsensical storylines Sabrina works because it’s about magic and monsters and it is supposed to be over the top. But still features much more diversity, good acting, and even LGBT characters that aren’t just there in token roles. For anyone hoping for just a good ole scary show for the holidays fret not, because that’s exactly what the show is, it’s never preachy and has genuinely likable characters. One of the other benefits is that it’s all available now to watch. I came into the show very skeptical and by the end of the first episode I was already determined to finish half of it before going to sleep, woke up and watched even more of it. Only stopping to write this very blog post right now. For someone who doesn’t have ten dollars to waste we got to stick together and watch the best Netflix content, so get on it, Happy Halloween!
