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

I've watched the entire series and I have to say it was pretty okay except for the political and anti-christian stuff they try to push down on the people. The first 2 episodes are really politically charged with liberal agenda being pushed down on the viewers. After that it calms down, but it does take a lot of indirect jabs at Christianity and conservative thoughts. God is constantly called 'False God'. And the inability of God to act when the witches 'Dark Lord' provides them protection is highlighted several times even though most of the times the mortal beings suffer because of the acts of witches. It is almost misandrist and does not give out a good impression on normal men. Also things like murder/cannibalism and other wicked stuff is completely treated as no big deals, whereas other stuff like women's rights, transgender rights are more focused and exalted. Women manipulating men to get what they want is treated as okay, since men are seen as bad. Harvey, Sabrina's love interest is almost certainly treated as an almost dumb character who never is smart enough to suspect what is going on. Honestly the best character in the entire story is someone who is not that important. Its Tommy, Harvey's brother, who made all the sacrifices necessary for his brother, who is the best character and selfless. All in all, the story has some good twists, but the poor logic and ill treatment of men and Christian thought make this show more of an agenda rather than a show to sit back and enjoy.
