    Lacks the magic the other Sabrina shows had

    By That_TV_Dude, Dec 24, 2012

    I never really did see Sabrina, but the few episodes I did see from the live action or cartoon were actually entertaining. If you haven't seen the sitcom or cartoon here is the story of Sabrina. Sabrina is a teenage girl who secretly is a witch who attends a regular high school by day, but goes to a witch academy by night. She lives with her family who are also two witches named Hilda and Zelda, and has a sarcastic cat named Salem who used to be a warlock before being turned into a cat. Sabrina must try to balance her life and try to win the love of her life, Harvey. The show actually takes place one year after the events of Sabrina the original animated series. Sabrina is now a full fledged witch and has great powers. The first big disappointment fans of the original show will see is that the characters are no longer who they once were. Salem is not sarcastic or funny at all. Harvey is now an idiot. The new friend who replaced Chloe since she "moved away" looks just like her except her skin is a lighter color. The aunts are also not that funny as well and don't do as many gags or antics. Sabrina was the only one who seemed to stay the same. The plots in this show are just bland and have no creative effort whatsoever. They are just rehashed stories and the morals they have are just boring and lifeless. Nothing is new or creative that catches your eye. I also found it strange that Sabrina now needs a wand to cast spells. Last time I checked she just chanted words there was no wand. Is this Sabrina or did I enter the poor man's Harry Potter? I half expect to see Voldemort pop up out of the blue. The artwork and animation seem to remain true to the original cartoon as well and still holds the charm for it. As for humor, there were some funny moments but they were pretty rare to find in this show, and with Salem and the aunts not being funny like in the original shows, the humor seriously lacks. I was glad that this show was canceled in 3 months, it was an unnecessary spin off. I never did hear of another Sabrina show, but I am willing to bet that this show put the final nail in the franchise and killed it off. if you are a really big fan of Sabrina, just go see Sabrina the Teenage Witch or Sabrina The Animated Series and stay away from this mess, it's not worth it at all.moreless

    The original animated series was better.

    By TwoTonePhantom, Mar 28, 2011

    I wish they didn't make so many changes from the 1999 cartoon to this. Sabrina's powers are weaker, and she has to use a wand now to cast spells (what is this? Harry Potter? Fairly Oddparents?), Chloe "moved" and got replaced with Maritza, who looks exactly like her but with lighter skin (lazy artists), Gem got replaced with Cassandra, a background character from the original cartoon, Salem's not as sarcastic, and Harvey isn't as cute anymore!



    The plots were extremely cliche` and the morals were too annoying. While the morals were slightly annoying in the original cartoon, they became worse. No wonder why this show only lasted 20 something episodes!moreless

    Sabrina's animated series was better, this seems like a ripoff of Harry Potter mixed with the FOP.

    By MadameCat, Mar 02, 2011

    I loved the animated series, but this...this tramples on the series, and the morals were cranked waaaaaaaaaay up. Salem isn't as sarcastic as before, and Harvey isn't as snuggably adorable as he was in the 1999 series. Worse, Gem was a formidable villain, but now they brother chucked her out of the series, and replaced her with Cassandra. Plus, Chloe 'moved' away...



    ...so many issues, and so little time to actually fix those issues. Two-Tone said exactly what I wanted to say already about this crappy spin-off, just air the original series and be done with it...don't murder us with a stale misguided imitation with preschool morals.moreless

    Okay, a few things to look at before reviewing.

    By Agent-Red, Nov 05, 2006

    The summary is wrong. I checked Wikepedia and it says that Sabrina is 14 years old, not 13. In this one there are characters that still around like Harvey Kinkle, but Chloe disappeared just like in the live action series. However, I love how Sabrina goes up against a full-blooded witch. That gives the show alot more spice.

    Ew.

    By Nuttygurl, Oct 25, 2005

    Completely rubbish. The VA who does Sabrina should be sacked. So should Salem\'s.



    How come Portia changed her name to Cassandra? She was called Portia in the Friendship movie.



    Why don\'t they hire some writers with original ideas that can write new shows instead of ruining already written ones? Please, stop, stop it now.

    Negativity at Spellmans.

    By dewsid, Aug 18, 2005

    Do we really need this? WHo has ever heard of a 13 year old high school student. Changing the voices was a MISTAKE ! When I saw this cartoon, I went oh my god! Who created this? WHy did they create this? I liked the animated series but this one probably makes us feel that Sabrina: the Animated Series was a BAD idea. It should have ended after the Friends Forever movie and not going too far with this?



    The only good thing about this series is that Sabrina still has Harvey and it is realistic that she has 2 new friends rather than the same-old same-old friends. I wish the show was better to get more episodes and not shoved out of the air.moreless

    Totally Cool Show! Just like Sabrina the animated series.

    By kozataaaa, Aug 16, 2005

    This show is marvelous! I don't understand why most people don't like it. It's a perfect continue of "Sabrina the animated series". The characters are nearly same and the episodes are as exciting as " Sabrina The Animated Series" . This show rocks!



    Ten stars rating and two thumb up!
