Your Childhood Self Would Be Disappointed If You Didn't Watch 'The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina,' Just Saying

There's a new witch in town you need to get to know ASAP.


I love "Riverdale," and I also tend to love Halloween and all things spooky. So when I heard about "The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina," I got very excited. The older show ended when I was about three years old, so while I was aware of it, and had seen some episodes, I didn't have the same connection to it that people just 10 years older than me did.

I know there were lots of people who were upset that the new show wouldn't be taking the same lighthearted tone as the original, but the newer show is based on a more recent comic line that deals with much darker elements.

Well, let's get straight into the review:

I honestly love this show so much. The trailers that were released mainly showcase the first couple of the episodes of the show, so there's a lot that viewers don't know going into the show. As many of you may know, the show opens with Sabrina preparing for her 16th birthday and her Dark Baptism, in which she'll sign her name in the Devil's book and become a full-fledged witch, leaving behind her mortal life.

This is something that's very clearly expected of her, both of her aunts make it clear that they are confident that Sabrina will go through with the baptism, and even Sabrina seems to feel trapped in the idea.

But that's one of the best things I love about this character. She trusts her gut, and she fights for her right to choose. Some part of her feels extremely uneasy at the thought of signing her name in the book, and she trusts herself, and that feeling.

Too many times we see characters go through with things that end up harming them, all because it was expected of them to do so. But Sabrina wants to make the choice that's best for her, even if it means embarrassing her aunts.

In addition, she challenges the idea that she has to choose a side. She grew up in the mortal world, so why should she have to give that up? And if her dad, a warlock, was able to marry her mom, a human, then why is it such taboo for witches and humans to have any sort of relations? These are some of the questions we see Sabrina throw in the face of witch authority, and when she's given wishy-washy answers, she sets out to find answers for herself.

The way she cares for her friends is seriously amazing. The things we see her do for her friends proves that she would go to hell and back if it meant protecting them, even if she hurt herself in the process. The thing is Sabrina isn't going to put herself in danger just because she's told to, but she will put her life on the line to defend her friends.

I'm trying not to spoil too much of the plot, and it's really hard because the show exceeds any expectations that I had for it. Sabrina is the character that I did not know I needed, and I'm sure others resonate with her just as much as I do. So, if you haven't seen "The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina" yet, what are you waiting for?

Have we ever need Jessica Day's positivity more in this week than any other? I think not.


Have we ever need Jessica Day's positivity more in this week than any other? I think not.

Monday morning, when you realize you have an 8 A.M.


That feeling of hitting the snooze one too many times. We have all been there.

When you finally get to the class you actually are going to enjoy.


Even if that means that you may have one bad grade once in a while, still worth it.

When you forgot about that one class that you needed for your major, and it is not on your schedule. 


Just keep checking that schedule plan, maybe something will turn up.

Ladies, when your monthly friend makes an appearance during class and you are not prepared.


We have all been here.

When the teacher says mandatory attendance or you will not pass. 


Honestly, there is nothing worse than those words coming out of the teacher's mouth.

When you see a Starbucks, but know that last semester you ran out of money.


I have fallen into temptation too many times already.

When you had 3 pop quizzes over the syllabus, and your roommate asked what's wrong.


She's just being supportive, but give me time.

When you realize syllabus week is over, and it can only go down from here. 


Just keep being Jess, and maybe it will go up!
