One of the most disturbing things that I don't really see people talk about is Nick's PTSD from trapping the devil in his body and how it can be an allegory for male sexual abuse when he cries and says things like "I can still feel him inside me". But, no one takes him seriously and the writer turns him into the bad guy who cannot be loyal to Sabrina when he uses sex to deal with his trauma.

Early Sabrina had some Addams family quality to it. Mixing good and evil, blurring the lines. Later it felt more like Mary Sue and the good kids in satanic Hogwarts, fighting against the evil.

@MrWordcraft Arena Same here. Honestly, Nick might be handsome but Ambrose... He has something special. He's my CAOS crush. Haha. Anyway. That's the reason why I think everything shouldn't have revolved around Sabrina all the time, we will never have spin offs about those characters but adding episodes about them would have been totally possible. But instead of doing so, they decided to make Sabrina the damn center of everybody's world...

I really hated the episode in which they make fun of the old sitcom, not only do they half ass it (They should have reconstructed the original sets for the house), but the way they're so mean spirited about the Salem puppet is outright off-putting, the puppet in the sitcom looked fake but the techniques behind it were top notch, not only was the puppet so complex it needed two operators, but they also had five live cats and their trainers for scenes where Salem moved around, so in reality it was a massive effort and to see the reboot be so dismissive of it really irked me, especially when this is really emblematic of the whole thing, because for a 90's show STTW was really visually inventive and they used a ton of different special effects, both digital and practical, and CAOS is just such bare minimum in everything it does and it cuts corners everywhere so no, they don't get to make fun of the 90s version.

@Uncle Timo Truthfully, it depends on the project, but fairly certain about most things. Example- Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni are creative directors for Mando, in which they have been given nearly free reign, totally separate from KK's (figurative head of LucasFilm) agenda. Mando is really good and is driven by its two director team. I'm not saying it's every project either because if we move a little to the side, but within the same studio, we get Bobba Fett. Which had major interference from KK and her role as studio head. In turn that stifled the creative team on that show.

Couldn't the writers make Ambrose able to bypass his house arrest by giving him the ability to transform into a cat (Salem!!) and travel with Sabrina? The lore-dumping could have been made so much simpler and way more fun with some added banter. Haven't watched the show but would love everyone's opinions on this!

@Curtis Harris He does talk. And it wouldve been an interesting new take on Salem while still keeping him *as* Salem. It doesnt ruin the character to have be cursed or something and only able to leave the property in the body of a living thing (or any other explanation). Thats basicslly what he is in the og show anyways, so hed just have different mechanics for his curse and possibly be a bit more tragic and less campy/comic relief. There was just no reason to split them into 2 characters when theyre basically the same being.

"How a middle aged man thinks teenage girls talk" was exactly my reaction watching this show. I'm ok with the whackiness and non-seriousness of the whole thing, but the dialogues are honestly infuriating. There's a random scene where Roz stands up and says something like "we are women and we are here to stop the patriarchy" dude who tf talks like that? Whole show reeked of fake representation of hot topics without ever addressing them with nuance and depth, it was just patronising. And I cringed so hard when they formed a band, those scenes are some of the worst moments of television I can remember. I also like that Sabrina is a narcissistic sociopath, but it's clear the writing behind is sort of unintentional because while her friends suffer from the consequences of her actions, she is the hero who saves them... from herself. They do go in the direction of almost making her a villain in multiple situations, but then everyone always forgives her anyway and it loses credibility. I was so happy when the real Salem appeared in s4, even though the whole context of it made no sense anymore. Overall disappointment is the right word for it. Lead actress though was amazing, as well as the aunties and Lilith. Not sure how to judge Ambrose, the overly dramatic delivery of his lines is kinda funny but I'm not sure whether it was intentional.

15 year olds can’t really be deemed sociopaths or narcissists. the DSM has stated for years that being over age 18 is part of the criteria you have to meet to receive those diagnoses, and psychologists would be extremely hesitant to even consider diagnosing a 16 year old with *two* personality disorders.

I remember when I was casually watching the show and the moment where Sabrina erased Harvey's memory of telling him that she's a witch I was like,"Sabrina you fucking idiot." And constantly was frustrated with her because she NEVER learns from her actions. She is NEVER held accountable, just like Chloe Price in Life is Strange, the female characters are never held accountable, but they have no problem shitting on men or calling them toxic. Funny how Dontnod tried to manipulate me to like Chloe Price, but I hated her every time she opened her mouth and I liked the male characters way more. David(Chloe's step dad) is one of my favorite characters, Warren is dope, Nathan is a intriguing character that I was interested to learn more about because he struggles with mental health and he was abused by his father even as a kid. And also I fucking hate how Dontnod added that whitewash bullshit about Native Americans and the British and French intruders(Which is funny because Dontnod ARE french) so the fact they believe that bullshit whitewash lie of settlers lived in peace and kumbaya with indigenous people tells me everything I need to know how they think of history.

I was so so excited for this show. Teen drama, horror and witches are my three most favourite things. The thing that ruined this show for me is that Sabrina's intentions and the story is never really certain. She spends the first season fighting for her right to not sign her name away, to keep her humanity. The second season she immediately throws this away and becomes "bad Sabrina" and everything she worked for is forgotten. By the end of the second season she's reformed again and retained her humanity and come back from that, then immediately in the third season she becomes the queen of hell. I would love to see her commit to either one of these pathways, except that never happens and she never really moves forward.

I always saw Sabrina as the bad girl trying to be a good girl. Her mortal side,"good side", always in battle with her "bad side" the witchy side. So whenever she tries to help, she uses the powers for good but since it's something meant for evil, things don't turn out as intended. Therefore, she gets mixed up and tries to comprehend why it didn't work out, making her seem selfish. I mean, wouldn't you want to help everyone you love if you literally had the power to do so? She just wanted to help. All of her bad behavior stems from her "bad side". And eventually she splits in two and you can see a change in personalities. Her "bad side" does what she wants, which is to rule hell. The "good side" seems a little lost because Sabrina always needed that "bad side" to do good. Complex but I get it and why they wrote her in such a way. The show still sucked at the end and it hurts my heart.
EmPhoenixCat 6 aylar önce
I don’t think Sabrina is necessarily a bad character either. I just wish that we see her grow wiser with each experience. I feel like her ambition and her hero complex works as a character flaw, but it has to add to the story and not take away from it. I want to see her figure out that she can’t fix everything on her own and that she does need help. But at the same time, I want her to realize that a romantic relationship isn’t what she’s missing from her life and that’s not what she needs. I’m fine with Morningstar getting with Caliban because that’s a different Sabrina, untorn between mortal and witch life. Second Sabrina was confident in her purpose and where she was supposed to be. Spellman, on the other hand, still had a lot to figure out because purpose wasn’t simply handed to her

@Linda Daggett anyways, when transporting, captain Kirk gets split to two, but no one knows there is a second "evil" captain for a while. The bad captain does whatever he wishes...... Even too far. Good captain, though wanting to stop him, his decisiveness came from his evil part and is sort of useless now without him. They fix the transporter and fuse them/him back. And Kirk sort of gets an existential crisis because he now knows what's in him, and the traits making him a good and excellent captain came from mostly his evil? part, which he gets over stoically, in short order, by a sage word or two from Spock(or not)

Overall, I am in love with the idea that this show brings, rather than what it actually is. There was so much buildup that led to nothing. She literally summoned hell fire, levitated, and healed herself after getting hit by maybe 5 arrows, and then later still had problems. At that point, she should've had the power to run the world.

@Alice that's not how christianity works but go off I guess hahah I'm not a practicing christian myself but a basic knowledge of the religion teaches you they worship the God of Abraham over anything else, not the Bible. The Bible only has religion holding because they believe it is the true word of God and God's mandates and mysteries are portrayed there.
Maria Gracia Moreno Vegas
@GilaCat well, "gatekeeping" is a common beahbior in judaism since Jews believe they are the people chosen by God and they are not given the mission to eveangelize and bring the gospel and beliefs to people. They believe they are the nation favoured by God and, except for very very few exceptions, you can only be a Jew if "you were born from a Jewish matrix", meaning a Jewish mother. So it is how it works for them, how they perceive the world and how they build their sense of belonging, so it's only natural that they "gatekeep" their rituals. Some other relacions are evangelist, like most christians and catholics, and they believe they have the aim and the "holy mission" to make their religion universal and bring the "truth" to everyone, so they are more open to people learning and adopting their beliefs. That's why.

This show is what made me coin the phrase "Sabrina Syndrome," referring to the number of times two characters explain things they both would already know to one another (as opposed to better methods of letting the audience in on something) AND THEN DO IT AGAIN TWO SCENES LATER as if it was written for drunk people who need to get caught up over and over.

FSN, I love love love LOVE that you a) always give credit to the actors and what they specifically bring to their roles and b) always distinguish between what the actor is doing wrong and (more often than not) what the writers or showrunners are doing wrong. I watch A LOT of video essay, rants and reviews about shows and movies and I see in lesser entries where the actors get sidelined, not even mentioned or outright thrown under the bus for some shit that's absolutely not their fault. And extra props for being unapologetic in your praise, esp of the actresses. Really stellar work, been a fan of your channel for a long time and these are just a few of the reasons why.

I feel like the first season could be pretty cool if the season finale was about Sabrina choosing between being a mortal and a witch. It would make more sense for us to see more of her human friends in that scenario, and it allows us to see how she juggles between being an ordinary girl and secretly being a witch. And if they _absolutely_ had to allow her to perform exorcisms, making her half angel, half witch, might've worked. Maybe everyone thinks she's half mortal, but in reality, she's just half angel or something, and that's why she can call upon god. Though I'm not too sure how that would work with the lore of this story, if the lore can even be deciphered at this point. 😞

I loved the first season and the second season was pretty good, but I felt like seasons 3 & especially 4 lost the original vibe of the show, it started off as a supernatural horror & partly mystery and it was perfect, but then a season 4 and even a bit of season 3 really changed it so it felt more like sci-fi than what it originally was. I’m still a big fan of the show and I’d still recommend it to people but I started watching when the first three seasons were out and it was my favourite tv show at the time, I was disappointed when season 4 came out because it was so different to the rest of the show.

This probably isn't a big deal for a lot of people, but it reeeeally bothers me how this show uses Lilith. In the original mythology, Lilith is the woman who refused to be subservient to anyone, even God, so it's kind of insulting to portray her as so desperate for Lucifer's approval while also parroting that fake feminist nonsense. Like, she's the original femme fatale, why not use that angle?I guess maybe it's a side effect of how they chose to portray Lucifer, but I think it'd be more interesting to have Lilith and Lucifer as a messy power couple and do something with that dynamic.

18:32 Having also grown up with Melissa Joan Hart’s characterization and series for “Sabrina”, and she will always, always be the OG Sabrina to me… I will say that Kiernan Shipka also immediately had me the moment I saw her on screen, and I immediately thought and felt the same way- “this girl IS Sabrina Spellman. End of discussion.” I have a love-hate relationship with the show, for similar reasons to those stated here, but I rewatch it because I enjoy her portrayal so very much that I watch for the Sabrina experience not the plot of the show. They had so much potential… the ideas were there! It’s so frustrating…

Remember the time Sabina got the ability to summon hellfire, just to be cornered a few episodes later by an old guy and his magic rodents? Or the time she used dark magic to bring the brother of her boyfriend back, just for him to kill him again? Remember the time Sabrina went into the afterlife and found her tormented mother unable to go to heaven, just to never even mention that again? Remember the anti-demon rape-whistle and how it was never used against a single demon after that episode? Remember the magic graveyard that would bring witches back to life and how they later on kinda forget about it? Remember the time Sabrina plus friends were replaced by 2 week old plant based doppelgängern? Remember the time they pissed off Satan and forced every witch in their cycle to convert to a new religion? Remember the time Prudence hunted Blackwood around the world and he just came back to town one day and started a new black church a street away from his old one, without anyone noticing? Remember the time Sabrina went away to live in a cave with a madman? Or season 4? This show droped the bucket pretty quickly, got entertaining in an ironic sense and went straight to annoying nonsense. But i´m glad i got to understand this video better now.

Harvey "nobody's favourite", liiterally my favourite character. I actually think he had a really compelling arc at least in part 1 where he was struggling with feeling like a coward and pathetic and he tried to combat it but he also had some rather severe trauma to navigate it was interesting seeing his arcs play out and it matter to him that he was brave and strong but never do that obnoxious thing where he puts his feelings of inadequacy on the females in life he shouldered them himself and strived not to get in the way + he did not fall into that pattern where the good-hearted male character turns into a complete tool to prop up the bad boy he stayed sweet, gentle and understanding the whole series and that was cool to see also I love him being artistic and the art being an important part of his character and I really rooted for his rs with Sabrina and his rs with Roz I thought both those relationships were done well and he treated both women well and the one time he was out of line he realised and apologised without any caveats.

I remember enjoying the first and second season, season three felt like things were not really to my taste in quality but some scenes I still enjoyed {as in I felt like the paganism plot could have been so much better and I hate that it wasn’t}. Then by season four, the season I was super excited for because I was going through a lovecraftian interest phase, literally had me at the end of the finale scene and the credits rolling, putting my phone down, and saying verbally “what the fuck...??” I literally thought to myself “that’s the ending?” Because so many things were interesting concepts, but like the video explains, they were poorly executed. I wish the show was done better, if Roberto let someone else be in charge then this show could have really hit the mark, or at least be better than what we got 🤷🏻‍♀️

I would imagine that the mixing of the characters of Salem and Ambrose would have worked really well. Just keep the house arrest thing, but Ambrose gets around it by shapeshifting so he can help out his cousin. Or he is only allowed to retain his human form within the Spellman house because it prevents him from using magic outside of the house. It would have been very fun.

This show is a good example of something that I enjoy in spite of its flaws. Several people did amazing work on this show, especially Keirnan Shipka and Jaz Sinclair. I constantly felt like the actors and the set designers and effects teams deserved a better written story. So, I watched and loved the things I love, knowing that it was going to get cancelled because of the things that I hated. I think the fact that the only way they could think to go out was by killing Sabrina and boyfriend so they can have eternity together to be the ultimate demonstration that the writers have no understanding of what a strong female character is. I mean come on the ultimate fulfillment of a strong female character is to die so everyone else can have their story? And her reward is an eternity with a boy? How many misogynist tropes can you fit into one ending?

Good points you make in this video, that I also mostly felt. The most frustrating scene in this series for me was when Lilith somehow easily could overpower and defeat Lucifer, who was always portrayed as much stronger than her. That's just lazy dumb writing I noticed so many times in Riverdale and then also sadly in Sabrina, where they build up something great that could lead to a big fight, but then instantly cut it off. Also I think it has something to do with the feminist stuff, that "oh it's a female, so she has to be 10 times stronger than the male characters, otherwise it's sexist af".

I would've greatly enjoyed if they'd had Sabrina become a legit villain protagonist for a while, and then have something happen that forces her to see how far down the dark path she's gone, and have her confront her own selfishness and grow from it. But that's too complex for these writers.

That’s kinda what I thought they were gonna go for in season 2. Considering that Sabrina goes so far with breaking the rules of the universe and still doesn’t realize or take complete responsibility for her actions, it would’ve made sense that something as drastic as having near unlimited power at your fingertips and then using it wrong would’ve been a huge wake-up call for her. Her seeing how much like the devil she really is would’ve been interesting. ….Also while I’m on the subject, season 3 and 4 sorta make me forget why Lucifer was even bad in the first place. I remember sitting there, scratching my head like, why is Sabrina against this guy again??

I never watched Riverdale, so I can’t comment on the ongoing theme. But I felt like the issues you brought up with Zelda and Lilith had a potential to explore how women navigate patriarchal structures of power. Especially when sometimes it’s by conforming to those structures in a way that ultimately doesn’t grant them the power and agency that they so clearly want. And I thought that was where the show was going, and was really interested to see how it played out. But then, it it never really delivered. I could be reading too much into the actual intentions, but I think it could have been a great character arc for both of Zelda and Lilith.

After watching this I went around to watch some clips of the show. Goodness gracious, some of the fans are rabidly irrational! The writers of the show don't find anything wrong with Sabrina's actions, and neither do the die-hard fans. "How dare Harvey be upset that Sabrina just disappeared his dad!" etc.

That whole "Sabrina is whatever celestial being suits the moment" thing legit reminds me of Charmed. Like late stage Charmed where the sisters got to be Valkyries, greek gods, hindu deities, genies, demons, whatever shit the writers could throw at the wall - but they at least kept that restricted to single episodes or mini-arcs and they always pretty much went back to just being the Charmed Ones. I bring this up because it honestly blows my mind that ANY show could have less of a handle on their magical universe's internal logic than LATE SEASON CHARMED.

I thought it was pretty good, it had a lot of potential. And I guess I liked it because I came into it having NEVER even heard of the comic books and looked at it more as a Dark, more mature version of the old 90s TV show Sabrina the Teenage Witch that I remember from my childhood. So maybe some of it was a sense of nostalgia, but the show also kind of reminded me less of a show with an important over arching premise, but more of the old school "monster of the week" type of show such as like Grimm or Supernatural, Both of which I will say were MUCH better shows of course, but The chilling adventures of Sabrina did have that same sort of feel to it that the other two shows had in their very early stages. Both Grimm and Supernatural of course grew and matured as their shows went on, but it seemed that Sabrina didn't, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, IF your show has a VERY strong writer, premise and direction from the get go, which Sabrina clearly didn't.

@Don Solo I feel like Sabrina Morningstar was just more in touch with her desires? I mean, she goes on to become royalty with Caliban by her side and it kind of felt like an appeasement for Lucifer and the council, but maybe she really did like Caliban. They’re both ambitious and both have a taste for not playing by the rules so maybe she could see why he did it. In some ways, I think Morningstar was a lot more mature than Spellman. Like I kept waiting for the ball to drop, I thought she was going to turn evil and betray Spellman. I thought that she would want to be the only Sabrina, but no. Morningstar is perfectly fine with living her life in Hell with her father and her husband.

@Breezy's Buttery Bun Yeah, the whole Satanic Temple lawsuit thing was because CAOS used a copy of a copyrighted statue that was made specifically for the satanic temple. They straight up just stole it. They took pictures of it and had another sculptor make it for them, and it turns out the statue was both copyrighted, and hand made specifically for TST. The show also misappropriated the statue and the Satanic Temple as a whole.

Yea, I feel like they could have done a CGI cat like they did the original, especially since today we have so much better CGI, they could have pulled it off. For those that don't know, the reason Salem is so absent is because they had already cast Kiernan Shipka as Sabrina when they found out she was allergic to cats. So it was either recast her, or ditch Salem? Again, why not CGI? I Mean they had so much CGI already, how hard would it have been to do a CGI Salem?

1st off, loved your thoughts. Although some of them are different from my own. Didn’t watch this series to completion because I lost interest in the story. Although I really loved the 1st seasons. So to start, I liked the depiction of Salem the cat as a goblin, I was ok with having him not talking being a cat/pet owner I think the unspoken communication with a pet was enough. I also rather enjoyed Zelda being despicable, and having a moral double standard, not a role model but a witch who’s moral compass is much like Sabrina’s (being that it really isn’t based off right or wrong but their own selfish interests) Ok, now I completely agree on the horrible representation of feminism and the horrible depictions of men. I honestly think the creator of the “Archie Universe” depict his “fantasies” of what high school girls/women are. We can see this through both the childlike behavior and overly sexualized and submissive behavior of the women characters he writes about and creates. Now is this wrong or right? I can’t answer that. He’s attempting, but can’t see beyond his “lens” which means we can only see these characters from his perspective of women, and his perspective of woman empowerment. He obviously idolizes the “perfect” high school girl, probably from his own experiences. But creating a perfect woman dehumanizes. Almost like the concept of the “step-ford wife”. Again loved the video, made me think more critically of the concepts and why I ended up rejecting the series mentally (never finishing)

I was absolutely HORRIFIED about Nick's ending. It was the dumbest way to end a character's story and it romanticized dying on purpose because you can't live without your SO. Like, shit, I liked Nick throughout the first seasons but then he became totally bland and his only purpose was being in love with Sabrina. He couldn't have an actual goal except showing than he was nothing on his own. Such a great example for young people watching the show. This really threw me off. I can excuse bad writing but I can't excuse showing these kind of toxic behaviors as if it was nothing.

I actually thought that Sabrina would end up with Harvey in the end. Because if you remember about the episode that (I don't remember her name) Sabrina's best friend with the glasses become stone, he lied about her being his true love. So I thought " Hey maybe in the end he will be with Sabrina " , also Nick was a real jerk in the end. And he was toxic too. He made the choice to accept her dad's soul inside him and then be blamed Sabrina. But Sacassa wanted this last scene with their kiss,like it was a romantic tv show. It wasn't, it was supposed to be dark yes, but Sabrina does not die in the actual story😂. Also, she deserved better. Her boyfriend (harvey) treated her awfully and got to a relationship with her best friend who also was an awful friend and made Sabrina believe that she was the mean one and then she made her giving her, her eyesight back. And Theo, he was actually cute. I think that her mortal friends we're awful and she should choose her imortal life (instead of Nick. Nick was an idiot after he left Hell.)

I think my ideal Dark Sabrina show is a pure horror show with a talking snarky Salem that brings moments of levity and dry comedy in short moments. Also I think Sabrina being in college would be more interesting than the high school teen drama. Sabrina being a young adult would allow for more freedom for the writers to dip in both ridiculousness and grounded drama.

I think we all loved it because of the actress because like you said she was absolutely perfect for the role, she is impressive actress which made all other kids in the show look like they are horrible actors and just some kids someone picked off the street, and they are just average and not that bad. I think they made her as a antihero, she is in the end of the day daughter of the devil who just tries her best to be good but is arrogant and powerful where the dark side is pulling her. The witches are portrayed as bad characters which they are no matter they are protagonists of the show. They messed up the show but I disagree with Sabrina’s character dissection.

The performative activism and wokeness of CAOS and Riverdale are sooo frustrating... As a feminist, I'm thrilled that the movement has become more mainstream and is reflected on in the media. But if you want to make feminism a part of the deal, you need to do the work too! You can't just throw in some "cool" lines and mottos and then go on to misrepresent the whole concept. Two things I truly despise are the men-hating and the representation of sexuality. Feminism has obviously nothing to do with hating men, it's actually designed to also break stereotypes and misconceptions of manhood. I'm kind of surprised the video didn't also mention the sexualization that goes on. Because there is a thin line between body positivity and sexualizing characters. This happens so much in this show and Riverdale as well. It's mostly camera angels and contexts that don't sit right. Why do the heroines have to perform a spell in their underwear? Why is the camera "checking" out Cheryls whole body when it has nothing to do with the scene? Sorry for the rant, I just get frustrated. Loved the review though! Can't wait for your take on Riverdale :)

It's improving but we still have a long way to go. Name-calling someone stating the truth as someone trying to "destroy feminism from the inside" is disingenuous and, frankly, is doing more harm than good. Get off the soapbox once in a while and actually read/listen to what people are actually saying, not what you THINK they're saying - picking fights for the sake of picking fights isn't helping anyone.

It’s a big mistake on their part, it’s like everyone in the writing studio is rushing to get everything written out and they’re not re-reading the script to make sure that it all lines up with what’s already been written.

Late to the party but you asked about your take on the "feminism" in the show. I gritted my teeth instantly because, as you doubtless know, there's a certain crowd that will foam at the mouth at any representation of any but the most white-bread characters as "woke" in the most pejorative way possible. We never learn what counts as a genuinely progressive and well-developed character or plot from them, because the standards they have are either non-existent or impossible to satisfy. But, nope, you laid out what you believed would work, showed the (massive) defects in the show's ham-fisted attempts very clearly, and in the end made an excellent case. I think we can categorize Roberto along with a number of other dudes who've been all about "girl power," and worry about when his sexual abuse scandal will surface. Well done.

The witch one, and the human one. One is powerful, super selfish, violent and ruthless, and the other one is, well, human, and the politically correct stuff associated with it. And I think that's what "justifies" Sabrina's flaws and decisions. And I think it makes it fun. She does want to get involved in everything, but that's main character typical stuff. The writing could defenetly be better, but just commenting in this specific part. Kinda sad they didn't put more effort into the show, it had a lot of cool elements and ideas. Editing because yeah, the fact that she can do what no one else can even with much more knowledge it's unjustifiable bad writing.
