Nobody watched The Chilling Adventures of SABRINA on Netflix?

Wow, the apathy is mind-boggling. I mean, even I'M a little curious about this one, and usually I couldn't care less about this kind of stuff.

Can't believe Tuxedo Mark isn't all over this.

I plan on watching it, but am catching up on other shows first.  It will be available on Netflix for quite some time so there is no real hurry.

Quite the contrast there between RIVERDALE and SABRINA, which is what I can't get over. The former was all people could talk about here for months and months, both before & after the debut. Nary a peep or mumble about Sabrina, though. Oh, well.

I've watched 8 episodes (of the 10) and am about to watch the last two.  I love it even though I usually don't like horror.  I enjoyed the first two seasons of Riverdale but I haven't watched any of season 3 yet.  Something is keeping me from watching it and I'm not sure what.

I can't find The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina on Netflix. Is it only streaming or is it in discs you can rent?

Streaming only.  It should become available on disc eventually, but it will probably be at least a year or two.

Love is a strong word, so that's got to count for something. I have not watched Riverdale after all this time, nor do I really feel any desire to. On the other hand, even though I don't have Netflix, I would consider watching Sabrina if the opportunity presented itself (like at someone else's house, or if it eventually becomes available on general-release DVD). I am interpreting your last comment as there being something about Riverdale that is annoying or disturbing to you on some level, something which has eventually put you off the show even though you already invested your time in the first two seasons.

Netflix gives you a free month if you sign up as a trial.  Even though I already did that once a couple of years ago, they gave me another free month so if you want to try Sabrina, it wouldn't cost you anything. 


As far as Riverdale, I really thought two seasons was enough and I was surprised when it was renewed for a third season.  I'm pretty sure I'll get around to checking out season 3 eventually but I keep reading snippets of reviews from people who liked the first two seasons suggesting that season 3 is not very good.  I don't usually implicitly trust other peoples opinions on such things since I have a high tolerance for cheese (which is why I probably was fine with seasons 1 and 2), but I think I read something about a cult leader or something and I don't know why but that's a bridge too far for me.  Again, I'll probably get bored enough to check it out eventually but I'm good for now. 


Also, a co-worker of mine who gave up on Riverdale halfway through season 2 said she was going to watch Sabrina (she's not an Archie Comics fan) and I always enjoy things more when I have someone to debrief with after it's over.  She's not as far along with Sabrina but she's enjoying it.  I finished it this morning and loved the ending, especially because it does have roots in MLJ history.  The penultimate episode (number 9 of 10) really affected me, but folks who watch and enjoy horror would probably find it pretty tame. 


If you check it out, I'll look forward to your review!!

This is all very interesting. I'd give your post a double-like if I could. I watch much less television (which no longer really seems like the appropriate description anymore, if you know what I mean) than the average person. Probably because I always have piles and piles of comics (the floppy kind as well as collected editions, and American comics as well as Japanese manga) on my list of things to read every week -- and I've gotten WAY behind in the last few weeks as it is. Still, I try to watch a few things, but at this point it's almost exclusively anime. I have an extensive list of anime series I want to watch (most are versions of manga I've read), and it takes me quite a while to work my way through those.

Like I started watching the anime version of PLANETES (which I had recently read already in total as manga), but found it to be quite different and not as good (so far) in my opinion. I had only gotten about six episodes into that, before I got distracted again and started watching the first 9 episodes of PRISON SCHOOL (which brings me up to the events of Volume 3 of the manga, which is all that I've read so far). Unlike Planetes, Prison School is adapted almost exactly from the manga with no deviations (well, "deviations" are part of the story, but I mean it's a note-for-note adaptation). I guess I'll go back to Planetes again and finish watching the anime, while I find the two manga volumes of Prison School which I couldn't order through Diamond via my LCS (which means I probably have to find them on Amazon). I prefer to read the manga before seeing the anime. Other things on my list of stuff to watch which I've read the manga, but haven't seen the anime adaptation as yet, include ONE-PUNCH MAN, MOB PSYCHO 100 and DEATH NOTE. Then there anime series I'd like to check out that I haven't read the manga of. I've seen a few episodes of the anime for THE DISASTROUS LIFE OF SAIKI K. and really enjoyed those (although I definitely prefer the subtitled ones over the English-dubbed ones) so I'd like to see the rest of that series at some point, as well. The manga doesn't seem to have been made available in English translation, that I could discover. I find I can watch most of this stuff online in some form.

Of course, time spent watching video is time not spent reading, and vice-versa.

I'm encouraged by your enthusiasm for the Netflix SABRINA, and I'm definitely giving some thought to that Netflix free trial. The hardest part is figuring out how to find the time to watch those 10 episodes without falling even further behind in the list of stuff I've bought to read, plus anime related to manga that I like.

I was just checking YouTube, and I can see there's quite a bit of buzz there about the Netflix Sabrina series, so I'll probably start there, since most of the videos are short and of course it's free.

I might need to be a little careful to avoid too many spoilers, so I'll have to think about that a little bit before deciding which YouTube reviews/comments I'll decide to watch.

I'm currently watching Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. I'm on Episode 6, and I am really enjoying it. I honestly could have binge watched the entire series over the weekend, but I'm trying to stretch out the series a bit. I need to reread the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina comics (c. 2014 - ), as I believe they were even darker than Netflix's version, but the series is far closer to its comic version than Riverdale is to Archie Comics. Riverdale is definitely a guilty pleasure, and I see it as a different universe, as its loosely based on the characters.

archiecomicscollector

And I love that both series incorporate a few Easter eggs or references for fans. For example, Sabrina carries a vintage Archie Comics thermos in Episode 1 and a poster of Archie's Madhouse can be seen in Harvey's bedroom in Episode 5 or 6 of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.

Oh, so the story is set during the 1960s like in the comic book?  8)

It definitely seems like it, but there are a few references that make me wonder if it is set in the present. Check out What Year Does Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Takes Place? on CBR.com for more information.

Tonight I'm going watch Honey & Clover - Season #1 - Disc #2

rusty

I got tired of waiting for Into the Badlands to come back from hiatus, so I went ahead and watched the first 8 episodes from season 3 that have been sitting on my dvr.  They were enjoyable, though maybe not quite as much as the first two seasons.  They do set up an interesting second half of the season.  I also liked the teases as to what happened to cause the breakdown in society.

I also watched the first episode of the new Doctor Who series.  It is only one episode, but I liked Jodie Whittaker as The Doctor.  I plan to watch the next four episodes tomorrow.  It is a short season with only 10 episodes so it will be over in another 5 weeks.
