Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina Review

I never thought that a remake of a show would take a complete 360, and still be good.

Did you have a favorite show as a child that you wanted to be remade? I did. I loved the show Sabrina the Teenage Witch. There are not many shows about witches that are good and not evil. I hoped they would one day remake my favorite show from my childhood. Finally, it happened, but it was not what I expected the show to be like.

If any of you have seen the original Sabrina the Teenage Witch, then you would know that it is all about normal teenager problems, and Sabrina would use her magic to help. When she casted spells, there would be sparkles that come out from her fingers because it was a happy and uplifting show; that is what I expected from the new series, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. That could not have been far more wrong.

In this new Netflix series, Sabrina is still a half-witch and half-mortal going to a high school for mortals, but the spells cast in this show are more like rituals, not quick and simple spells. She must choose to stay to live in the mortal world or go to the witch world, where she will never be able to have any connections with the human world. On her 16th birthday, she is supposed to make the choice ono which world she will live in. If she decides to go with the witches, then she will have to sign a book called the Book of the Beast. By signing this book, she will receive her full witch powers and will no longer be able to live in the mortal realm or communicate with her mortal friends. Once she makes her decision, there are many problems that continue to arise for her.

I have a sort of love-hate relationship with this show; but for the most part, I love this show. I love the fact that it's a little more real than the original series. There are several people who still believe that rituals are a real thing and people continue to use this practice to this day. It shows a teenager who is struggling to decide who her real people are, just like normal teenagers in real-life. She cannot decide if her true 'family' is her coven or her mortal friends and deciding that will determine her fate and who she becomes. Choosing between people who she can trust with her life, but can't tell the truth to, or the people who are just like her, but she may or may not be able to trust.

There are a lot of dark scenes in this show, both literal and figuratively. The whole show is very dark and dreary and does not have a happy vibe to it. The town of Greendale is always foggy, and the sun is rarely out, if ever. The Spellman's house is in the woods, where they perform their rituals, and they have their own graveyard in their front yard. They have a graveyard because Sabrina's aunts have a funeral business in their own home. As well as dealing with dead people, there is also some cannibalism involved in the series, which was completely unexpected.

There are a couple things I was not a fan of with this series. One thing I did not like very much was that it was the opposite of the original series. The reason behind this could also be from being so used to watching a happy and uplifting series of Sabrina the Teenage Witch. If you like dark and twisted shows, then this is the show for you. I would recommend everyone to watch this show. It is a great plot and the characters were fantastic.

A Beginner's Guide to Milwaukee Sports

Part I: The Bucks

Being a college student in Milwaukee has its perks, especially for sports fans. Now, while some may have brought their hometown teams to college, others (myself included) may have warmed up to the Cream City teams without knowing much about them. If this is the case for you, then these pointers can help you start enjoying Milwaukee basketball without looking and sounding like a bandwagon fan.

Quick History

www.nba.com

Here are some facts about the Bucks that can make you feel more knowledgeable about the franchise:

- They have only won one championship (back in 1971) and have lost one NBA Finals series (1974) (Land of Basketball)

- They have only had one* MVP-caliber player in Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (#33) during the 1971, 1972, and 1974 seasons (Land of Basketball)

- Other Notable Players Include: Oscar Robertson (#1), Sidney Moncrief (#4), Jon McGlocklin (#14) and Ray Allen (#34) (Land of Basketball)

*Giannis Antetokounmpo may win the MVP award this year

Gear Up

This one is a bit of a no-brainer. Wearing team's colors or spirit wear is a must, especially if you're going to a game. Most items like hats and t-shirts are perfectly acceptable, and these are great if you're not trying to break the bank. Buying your gear from a sporting goods store will usually be cheaper than buying them from the team store (the main one of which is located in Fiserv Forum). Most online stores like NBA.com, Fanatics, Fansedge, and sometimes even the team's online store will have sales on sports gear, so getting a good deal on team wear is always a plus!

A Word of Caution: Jerseys

All three of these players are not part of the 2018-2019 roster and #77 and #3 have been reused by current players Ersan Ilyasova (#77) and George Hill (#3)

If you're willing to go the extra mile, buying a jersey can really get you into locked in and pumped for the live action. However, it should be kept in mind that official Nike NBA jerseys range from $110-$250, so they definitely are an investment. While there are other options available like the FastBreak jerseys by Fanatics, they are a simpler (still official) knockoff of the Nike jerseys. Also; beware buying sale jerseys. There are usually three reasons why jerseys are ever on sale (aside from a storewide sale): a player is injured, a player doesn't play much and is about to be traded, or a player has been traded. While there is nothing wrong with having the jersey of a player who went on to another team (like Kareem and Allen), you are not exactly going to get brownie points for wearing a Jabari Parker or a Thon Maker jersey anytime soon.
