Finished the last batch of Sabrina. When all is said and done it's not a very good show. No sense of direction or tone, weak dialogue and no room for real character development. It's hard to tell whether the acting was bad or they were just doing their best with bad material. It's frustrating because it could have been a fun show, or at least an interesting one. Heck, I would have been satisfied with a halfway decent Buffy ripoff.

I thought season one was great. Season 2 just fell flat for me. I'm guessing I made the right decision to not look into further.

Season one was the best season for sure. It had occasional moments after that, but mostly it was a mess.

Why would you look for dialogue or character development in what is clearly after-school baby sitting? The only thing it had going for it was Caroline Rhea's boobs.

We're talking Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, the Netflix original series that wrapped up last year, which is why it's in this thread.
