What's the matter with angry women with blue hair, huh? Because I'll have you know mines a shade of purple at the moment, and I'm usually pretty cranky.
This weekend while still tearing my place apart, (don't put wall to wall carpet in dining rooms!), I put on Good Witch that's a Hallmark channel show. It's also on Netflix. And it's super schmaltzy and "cute" and pretty much a less witty or sassy Gilmore Girls but with a bookshop owner (who doesn't seem to sell or even have any books in stock) that always "magically" knows what someone needs from her store, or she just happens to send people on errands to give someone else a thing and when those two people are together they figure out the answer to whatever problem they have. And the town seems to exist in perpetual pre-Halloween autumn but will jump to winter for the snow. It's never summer or spring in that town ever. To be honest, when I first heard of the show, I thought it was one of those crime solving type shows, like Murder, She Wrote. It's just one of those shows where the worst problem anyone has is extremely light teasing from one or two girls in school or having to make too many cakes for some festival. And every conversation ends with one person walking away from the other and the remaining person watching them leave with this knowing amused smirk on their face. I binged the entire first season.
Lol, obviously I;m being a troll. Was gonna post about Comicsgate and how people on both sides say things like that but I fell asleep. . So infuriating on Twitter and how their threads turn into dumpster fires. Anyhoo, I found a good video on it and how it has finally played out with one creator suing another. A little long, but it kinda lays it out for you. I found it fascinating. I guess I'll post it in the comics thread?
Watched this over the weekend and liked it very much. Boy is it way different than the cartoon I remember as a kid and the ridiculous TV show form the 90s, where Sabrina's biggest problem was learning that using magic to solve everyday problems was bad when her friends got superiority complexes because she made their band sound supernaturally good for a talent contest. Clearly, this version has been influenced by Harry Potter. (As most stories about the supernatural world existing next to the plain old boring mortal world.)
I'm not sure how I feel about the "prophecy girl" plot though.
And for someone that has grown up having to keep secrets, Sabrina trusts people just a little too quickly.
