    I really enjoyed the first two seasons. As I mentioned it had a contemporary Buffy vibe that I really liked. What surprises me is how Netflix got away with it without causing a huge freaking uproar from Christian conservatives. They even had a lawsuit (or threat of one) over the statue of Satan they used.

    In the lap of squalor I assure you.
    Satan is a Character in the Bible.

    Any reference to Satan, anywhere, is legitimizing God and the Bible.

    One would think.

    ^ Maybe its cultural value. The Satanic Temple (that of the Baphomet statue like the one used in Sabrina) is well known for trolling the Christian right by presenting itself as fundamentally more decent.

    At the same time they don't want people following Satan or being inspired by fictional characters who do.

    Finished the first season.

    I totally called it that “Miss Wardwell” was really Satan’s wife/mistress.

    So Zelda is going to raise the baby girl?

    Sabrina seems to be getting down with her wicked self. :devil:

    Finished season 2. I had sensed that Sabrina was Satan’s daughter from the beginning.

    Really liked the little musical number.

    I hope that season 3 comes out next month.

    Unfortunately, that doesn't seem likely. The showrunners were asked about this possibility earlier this year (I don't remember when) and they said it seemed unlikely even though they would've liked that.

    We finally have a release date for part 3: January 24.

    Unfortunately, for those keeping score at home, that's the same day as the final episodes of BoJack Horseman. Curse you, Netflix! :scream:

    Awesome, I really liked the show so far although I'm a bit worried. They kinda made a truce with Lillith and the last episode basically ended with Sabrin deciding to screw her over by getting Nick back ... on the other hand I really like Nick and want him back. I giess I'm just going to trust the writers.

    Hmm, what to watch first. This or Picard?

    Definitely Picard. Not just because of the potential quality of it, but also because it's only episode for now. Also, it comes out a day before.

    I actually rarely binge watch a series all the way through. I keep several series in the go at any one time and often still do an episode a week (maybe 2 or 3) even when an entire series is available.

    I was just kind of commenting on my excitement over both series being released around the same time.

    Ah, fair enough! There a lot of great shows coming out this month. Those two and BoJack Horsemen's final season and Awkwafina is Nora From Queens.

    Damn, one episode in and I'm surprised how quickly they...

    ...jumped right into the thick of things. I didn't think they would go straight to Hell right away, instead wait a few episodes for board setting. But nope! Sabrina was good to her word and took her three closest friends and traveled down to hell to rescue Nick.

    I loved The Wizard of Oz motifs, from the Red Blood Road to the murderous Tin Woodsman, although oddly they dropped it about halfway through by meeting their old principal and Roz's grandmother (more L. Scott Caldwell, please!) instead of the Cowardly Lion. And you'd think flying monkeys would fit right in Hell, but I digress.

    A nice twist of events with Sabrina claiming the throne, even only to save Nick and then bequeathing regency to Lilith, but I'm certain that's going to bite her in the ass sooner than later. Or worse, she becomes tempted by the power of the throne or is corrupted by it. Or both.

    And now something wicked this way comes...

    Haven't watched this, as I don't have Netflix (yeah, yeah, yeah, I'm behind the times. Bite me). That said, other than the whole 'using established characters to tell their own stories' vibe this gives me, much as Riverdale does, this looks like a lot of fun. I'll avail myself of it as soon as I possibly can.
