Six Thoughts About the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

Like many others, I was both excited and nervous about Netflix's new series, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (CAOS). On one hand, I've been very into witches lately, and this seems like a gorgeous, dark twist on the original.

Hulu Recap: The Handmaid’s Tale, Episode 1, “Offred”
