Valdosta Daily Times sugarcoats the Netflix treatment of Sabrina

In this Valdosta Daily Times puff piece, they went about normalizing the recent change of Archie's Sabrina series when Netflix adapted it:
In the 1990s, she was featured in the live-action "Sabrina the Teenage Witch," starring Melissa Joan Hart in the title role.

All of these versions were kid-friendly.

Then, Sabrina returned in recent years having taken a darker turn.

Capitalizing on her being a witch, Sabrina became a horror adventure show with Netflix's "Chilling Adventures of Sabrina" with Kiernan Shipka in the title role. Archie Comics followed suit with comic books based on the soap-opera occult nature of the streaming Netflix series.

Now, while the Netflix series is considered canceled, Archie Comics brings Sabrina back this fall for new chilling comic book adventures.
And by that, they mean horror-themed storytelling. If anything, what this terrible fluff can tell us is that Netflix really is a bad influence on much of modern entertainment, and the tinkering doesn't stop at just the publishers' forced and contrived decisions. For all we know, if this is the direction they're taking now, chances are that, for as long as Archie continues its existence, Sabrina may never be a humorous comic ever again. Like many other famous icons, it's been exploited by modern ideologues who've forced in the concept of darkness as much as they have politics into entertainment. And these press sources will never complain about the lack of brighter, more optimistic storytelling free of political influence.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
