Hi and welcome to this weeks TV Rewind. If you are new to TV Rewind it is simple we take a look back at all the shows that we used to watch when we were kids 80’s 90’s. We have gone through a lot of shows since we have started doing TV Rewind but don’t worry there is still a lot more shows out there. This week we are taking a look back at Sabrina The Teenage Witch. I think most people I knew watched this show but some wouldn’t admit it because they were too cool to watch it. I didn’t really give a dame I watched it.
The show was about a teenage girl who is sent to live with her ants, who tell her that she is a witch and that she will have to learn how to control her powers and figure out the family secret if she is to become a full licensed witch. O and I forgot to tell ye about there talking cat who was a witch that broke the rules of the witches council and as punishment got turned into a cat for the rest of his long long life. It was a comedy show that went for cheap laughs (which worked) and had a leading lady that a lot of people had a crush on (including me) so the show worked on a few levels.
The show came from the comic book Archie. It aired for the first time in 1996, to over 17 million people, and ran for 7 seasons (the first 3 4 on ABC and the last 3 on The WB). The first four seasons dealt with Sabrina in high school and dealing with her powers and and everyday life and the last 3 seasons dealt with Sabrina in collage and hiding her powers from her room mates and work mates. By the time the third season had started I had growing out of the show and lost interest in it so I can’t really say what the later seasons were like but judging by the drop in ratings it must not have being any good.
The show finished in 2003 with ratings of only 3 million a big drop from the first show and its 17 million. Do you remember Sabrina, The Teenage Witch, What did you think of the show?
