This week has been binge watching shows on Netflix and catching up on another on CW, but I’m going to hold all thoughts on that one until the season is over. So, let’s dive into what I ended up watching and finishing in the last week.

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

The first thing I binged watched was Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Season 3. Which focuses on the after math of imprisoning Lucifer, and Sabrina dealing with the truth over who her father is. After deciding to rescue Nick from hell, Sabrina takes on the challenge to become the Queen of Hell against the self-named Prince of Hell, Caliban. All the while the witches are out of power and the pagans are the new threat on the horizon with their carnival of terror. Not going to spoil what happens, but the ending cannot prove well for Sabrina in the long wrong. I seriously loved Caliban, and hope he comes back for the fourth season.

I have not played any of The Witcher games nor read the books, but I decided to give the TV show a chance on Netflix after I finished Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. I find it interesting that they jump around in time without ever really making it clear they are doing so. I only realized that during the fourth episode after Geralt jokingly remarked, “Law of Surprise for something Duny has but doesn’t yet know.” Which made the show even more intriguing, especially when I realized that what Ciri and there was time jumping occurring. At that point, I was trying to figure out how Yennefer fit where the three stories were going to come together.

At first I thought The Witcher was rather slow and trying a little hard to be the next Game of Thrones, but it started to grow on me after a few episodes. There aren’t that many characters so it’s easy to follow. Once you realize there is some time jumping occurring and things aren’t happening linearly in that some events are taken place decades apart. Though no one seems to really age during that time span unless you count Ciri as her story line is taking place in a smaller time period compared to Geralt and Yennefer. Side note, I love the Bard, he’s hilarious.

    Ooh I still need to watch the new Sabrina season . I really liked the Witcher series . It was close to the games and had a similar feel. Have yet to read the books though since its hard to find english translations .

      The newest season of Sabrina was a ride, but I enjoyed it. Really curious where they’ll take the fourth season.

      If I didn’t have a bunch of other games I needed to finish, I would totally get The Witcher to play next.
