An average high school student and his best friend get caught up in some trouble causing him to receive a werewolf bite. As a result they find themselves in the middle of all sorts of dramas in Beacon Hills.
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
There's no jeopardy. None. We know she grows up to be a teenage witch then goes off to college, so let's not pretend she's ever in mortal peril. Find me another hook? There's some clever writers, you can do it.
Whilst you're at it, please hire Michelle Gomez another voice coach. Or even better, just let her use her own voice. She is a fabulous actress, wonderful to look at and fills every role she's ever taken, full of awesomeness. Except for when she speaks in This show and I'm transported to any of a thousand park benches in the UK, occupied by a drunken Glaswegian.
The cast is really strong. Please, give them a script and storylines to reflect their talent. Lighten up a bit too. I couldn't care less what path Sabrina chooses. Neither are exactly free of teen angst or dreariness. At least Buffy had some humour. And she clearly provided some storylines along with Supernatural.
And to the director: THERES NO SHAME IN HAVING YOUR CAMERAS IN FOCUS.
I won't give up on you. I still have visions of marrying Mellisa Joan, so I feel I owe it to myself.
