Good morning, it’s day 12 of 60 Days of Halloween!
Today I opted to watch an episode of classic ’90s sitcom, Sabrina the Teenage Witch. I picked this show for two reasons:
1.) I watch at least one episode of Sabrina every year around Halloween.
2.) The trailer for the new Sabrina show (from Netflix) will make it’s debut later today.
As a new era of Sabrina the Teenage Witch is just around the corner, it made sense that for this morning’s episode I should go all the way back to the very beginning of the series to watch the pilot episode. Dating back to 1996, Pilot introduced all of the key characters (Sabrina, Salem, Zelda, Hilda, Harvey etc) and explained the premise of the show.
And now for an interesting fact for you: The character of Mr. Pool – Sabrina’s biology teacher throughout the first season – was played by Paul Feig. Feig is perhaps best known as the director of comedies including Bridesmaids (2011), The Heat (2013) and Ghostbusters (2016).
Sabrina the Teenage Witch is not currently available to stream on Amazon or Netflix (at least, not in the UK anyway), but the show is available to buy on DVD. The first season is also available for purchase on Amazon Video.
60 Days of Halloween continues tomorrow…
