I wrote about this show’s season 1 a few months ago and I was pretty excited to watch the following installment.
But no. It was not for me.
In my last review I wrote:
I did not give a shit about the whole school, the creepy trio, Lord Blackwood, the signing of the name…
That was boring!
I did not care about that. Not one bit. And it’s basically the whole premise of the show so…
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina – Season 1 Review
And so it was obvious that I was not going to like this season. And I didn’t.
I was not a fan of Sabrina’s attitude, despite how right she was. And Aunt Zelda got on my nerves.
I won’t stay here and list all the things that I didn’t like about the show because I’m all about spreading positivity and not the things I don’t like.
So I’ll talk about what I did like:
I loved his storyline. I loved it. I think it is important to show gender fluidity and transgender people’s journeys. I thought his transformation, his comin out, his fight against those who bullied him.
It was so important to show his journey on a program primarely watched by teenagers.
Had the show been only focused on Theo, I would have definitely enjoyed it more.
No Misogyny and Sexism
Something else I’ve enjoyed was the fight against misogyny and sexism. It was very clearly stated and I loved it. It’s important to be expicit with these topics, especially on a show with such a young demographic.
It’s fundamental that tv shows portray young strong teenagers that have a positive influence and that can teach them how to stand up for themselves.
I love her. She’s my favourite character. She’s so adorable. I love how hard she loves the people around her and how fiercely she protects them. Definitely my favourite character.
Another topic I liked was the theme of sisterhood and family throughout the 9 episodes.
And I don’t mean the bullshit, over-the-top betrayal and manipulation. I mean the love between Prudence and her sisters, between Hilda and Zelda and the support system the women have created for themselves.
That’s it for me. If it were my genre and my kind of show, I think I would have enjoyed it a lot more. It’s just not for me.
I am still not sure whether I’ll watch the next season when it comes out. It was hard enough to go through this one and honestly, I don’t care enough about Nick to watch 9 episodes of Sabrina trying to save him.
Riverdale made more sense to me than this. RIVERDALE. How crazy is that?
What are your thoughts on this second installment? Are you a fantasy person? Do you like supernatural show? Will you be watching the other Aguirre-Sacasa/Berlanti Archie Comics related productions?
