Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is an awesome official Netflix show that follows the perilous experiences of teenage Sabrina, half-witch, half-mortal. She has to navigate the human, mortal world and the challenges that come with it while juggling witch and family responsibilities. As many would imagine, that’s an incredibly difficult thing to accomplish, which creates intriguing conflicts in Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.
As such, here are some reasons why Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is a wonderful show that anyone interested in witchy, crafty things should watch.
The main conflict is intriguing
The show follows multiple conflicts that are resolved one way or another, usually by Sabrina, throughout the 4 parts. However, the very main conflict by itself is intriguing – the fact that Sabrina has to live her life as a half-witch, half-mortal gives birth to a lot of unexpected intrigues that are developed in Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.
One such intrigue is the romantic one. For many people, romantic endeavours aren’t necessarily a walk in the park, but they are seen as a rather natural development between two people who are attracted to each other. But what if something was stopping that romantic development – something that is completely out of your control?
Witch-human relationships are generally frowned upon and are controversial. Sabrina, being half-witch and half-human, shows that a bridge can be formed between the two, even leaving room for romantic things. This is one of the ways it helps the main conflict.
The show’s inclusivity and openness
This might not seem like much, as many shows strive to be inclusive nowadays, but it’s something to be appreciated in Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.
Members of the LGBT+ are seen as normal, creating no rift in the flow of the ongoing conflicts or intrigues. The characters are more than their sexual orientation, leaving enough room for ample character development outside of a single trait that some shows abuse for reasons of inclusivity.
Great effects and design
Maybe this is something often overlooked as well, but the effects of the spells and magic which happen all around in Chilling Adventures of Sabrina are impressive and they really give a realistic impression.
As per the name of the show, the set design is quite chilling, but it gives a homely, old-time witchy feel as well. The house of Spellman, doubled as a mortuary as a family business, is a place of paradoxes, protection and the unnatural.
