Manifest premiered on September 24 on NBC and is available on Hulu.
The pilot episode is intriguing. It is a bit reminiscent of Lost, without actually people being Lost, a bit like a Marvel Comic Universe show with the people who went missing coming back to society with some intriguing powers, and a bit like the Resident, with a storyline on medical procedures to save a child.
It is an interesting Pilot episode and worth watching. There are a lot of storylines here. Let’s see where this goes in Season 1.
The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (Netflix) & Sabrina The Teenage Witch (Hulu, Amazon Prime Video)
Netflix released The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, a new TV series based ever so slightly on the 1990’s TV show Sabrina the Teenage Witch.
Both the old and the new feature a half-mortal, half-witch protagonist and of course, her two aunts. But the story lines drift apart quickly there.
The 90’s show is fun and lighthearted. Humor and fast thinking often solve challenges that arise.
Netflix’s rendition, is dark, scary, and intense. The show goes deeper into magic and its effects.
Both shows are available to stream with The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina on Netflix and Sabrina the Teenage Witch, available on Hulu and Amazon Prime Video.
