The show we've been waiting for since episode 3! Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa is back again! An adaption of his new take on Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is the perfect show to watch this Thanksgiving break (or after)

How does a 8 issue run on the comics translate into a 10 episode series? What is still familiar from the Sabrina we know from the Melissa Joan Hart Version? How does Kiernan Shipka do all grown up?

Also, what is left for us to crossover when it comes to comic book tv shows? Oh don't worry, we've got some doozies!!!

It's a british show premiering on Hulu in the US and Channel 4 in the UK.

Since we did Roseanne last year, we had to come back and do the Conners.

Was the show worth the controversy? Is it better for it, worse? What did they do right in addressing it? Does the show work without Roseanne? A lot of deep questions.

Plus our first crossover with a show that doesn't exist! And 30 second pitches!
