So, it is period (theoretically 1968 since that's when Night of the Living Dead was in theaters). Cool. That'll give it some style and fit the comic it's based on. I wish it were releasing a tad earlier so I could space it out in October, but that's not much of a complaint.

One thing I'm a bit worried about is the lack of Salem in the trailers, I'm beginning to suspect that we won't be seeing much of him, especially with Kiernan Shipka's cat allergy.

Space Cop 10-06-2018 12:20 AM

^Really? You'd think ability to be around cats would be a hiring point for that role.

Hypo 10-06-2018 04:54 AM

According to the interviews they didn't discover that she was allergic until they started filming.

I was able to attend the Netflix panel at NYCC tonight and they screened the first episode for it. It had some pacing issues but I think this show will be a good example of how to reinvent a series, it was dark without being grim and gritty and also had humor without being over the top silly like the original.

Sadly my fears about Salem not being a huge part of the show seem to be true, though I thought he stole the show whenever he was on screen.

Does that make you feel better? Salem has to be there in some way even if they had to minimize his role.

Hypo 10-11-2018 07:26 PM

Nope, because that's from the pilot which I got to see at NYCC. It was the only time he spoke in the episode even though he was on screen doing stuff in cat form.

Guessing he just won't talk when he's a cat.

Space Cop 10-12-2018 12:08 AM

It's pretty cool that you got to see that. What was the vibe of the audience watching it?

Hypo 10-23-2018 11:07 PM

The crowd was into it, it was the last bit of a very good panel. Started with the cast of Umbrella Academy being on stage and we got to see the trailer for the show which hasn't been released elsewhere I believe. Then the cast of The Haunting of Hill House came out and we got to see a few clips from the show. Next was Lisa Henson and Louis Leterrier to talk about the upcoming prequel to Jim Henson's Dark Crystal and finally the cast of Sabrina and the screening of the first episode.

Netflix put on a good show.

I'm really looking forward to Sabrina, but I might have to wait a bit because I see an old show I've been Netflixing is expiring mid-November and I have a lot of it left.

At the con I went to last weekend, Bill Diamond was there with a display that included his new design for that show (among other puppets). It was pretty neat.

For the record, I loved the crap out of this show. Moreso the first season. The second season seemed to take... a certain slant, but emerged from it and still pulled off some cool stuff.

Space Cop 10-21-2019 05:49 PM

I tried it and liked some aspects, but it felt annoyingly political, so I dropped it after 4 episodes of season one. I wish the comic (which I loved) would come back.

Really? I didn't get a large political vibe from the first season. Maybe a general "toxic masculinity" thing.

The second season though was a bit of a chore early on. One of the female characters decides to identity as a male, yet they keep sucking at basketball on the boys' team... so Sabrina has to show up and use a magic spell to cheat and make them win (I think the same episode has Sabrina using her magic to cheat on a chemistry competition which the show regards as a strictly male thing previously). Which is a very strange message. A girl can do anything a boy can do... as long as you have a friend with magic that can help you cheat and win?

That was definitely what I got from it. By and large (Harvey would seem to be the exception), males were all bad and males with power are the epitome of evil. I know that stuff is common in modern shows, but I don't watch many modern shows. I think I just can't relate to High School kids in entertainment anymore.

Teen feminist witches banding together against the evil guys just isn't doing it for me. Mind you, I don't really like current TV shows much at all and the shows I do follow tend to be retro (GLOW and Stranger Things---neither of which I'm caught up on) or outright period pieces (The Crown and Victoria).

Do we know if and when a third season is coming? It's close to Halloween, and I want more of this show. The break between Seasons 1 and 2 was a lot shorter than what we're having now.

Love this show! They already filmed season 3. Nothing is announced but I bet around December or January.

The thing is "season 1" and "season 2" were technically two halves of a single season, shot back-to-back. Season 3 is technically the start of season 2 I guess.

Andrew NDB 10-21-2019 08:01 PM

According to this it could even be next week:
