This is one of the best shows I have watched. And not just because I love Nathan Fillion and am happy to see him back on screen. I really like the story. It is different. And the way this show is made is different.This is not your usual cop show. The basic story is really good and what they made out of it during the first season is solid. Continuously solid. The characters are well drawn and the actors are great. It is all believable and nothing in there jumps out as fake or overdrawn. I have waited to write this until the end of the first season and I can say I am still hooked. Solid show with great moments. So worth watching!
Okay, I just finished the whole season (seriously, only 8 episodes?????) and it was awesome! I have not played the games and I just started reading the books, so I cannot say how close to the original it is or is not. But in my humble opinion it was freaking awesome! The actors are great. Even though Henry Cavill does a lot of grunting instead of talking. Doesn't deter from how hot he looks with the long hair and wearing tight leather pants. The story line is quite twisty and it took me 3 1/2 episodes to figure out I was dealing with 3 different timelines before they all came together in episode 7 and 8. For someone not familiar with the books and/or game it is very confusing. The story itself makes more sense once you have established that fact. But other than that it was, I can only repeat myself, awesome! Now I am just a bit mad that there are only 8 episodes and the fact that I probably have to wait another year for the next chapter of the story.

I love it! I didn't quite know what to expect, but Sabrina the Teenage Witch it, most definitely, is NOT. It is scary,creepy and funny all at the same time. The acting is really good, I like all the young actors and especially Kiernan Shipka as Sabrina. She is perfect! I like that the opening credits are made up like the comic and the whole time there seems to be this blurr around the edges of the pictures and it feels like you are watching through a lense. It brings in the focus - a lot. I also like the way they mixed the old with the new. Clearly, just like Riverdale, the original story is set in a different time. But they managed to blend this so well, you barely notice. I am totally hooked and, I binge-watched the entire first season and now I absolutely cannot wait for the next one!
