yeah, from watching the Aftershow of it... now I'm wondering how The Strain would've turned out if Guillermo continued to be involved... apparently he kinda walked away before season 1 was even over! Odd... I thought season 1 was good... good enough to at least keep me hooked and interested in the future of the show.
My only disappointment right from the start was in how weak the common vampires are. They can be killed in such normal/boring ways... like they aren't much different from zombies. If you shoot them enough times they'll die... you don't even need special bullets either. They can even be killed just by hitting them hard enough.. like you take a baseball bat to their face a few times...they're done, just like an ordinary human...or if you run over them with a moderately fast-moving vehicle......and really, that's just lame, man.
I do enjoy the idea of there being a hierarchy of the species... but the vampire should always be more difficult to kill than a normal human..even the low-level ones. This is one of the things CW's shows got right... over those shows, you have only a few very specific ways to kill them (the usual- stake to the heart; burning to death in the sunlight [with no enchanted object protecting them], or cutting their heads off), and anything that falls short of that is ineffective.
Get ready for an intense look into the world of magic and witchcraft with THE CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA, a new one-hour dark drama/horror project based on the classic Archie Comics character. The new project is eyed to debut in The CW’s 2018-19 television season as a companion to RIVERDALE.
The new show will be written by Archie Comics Chief Creative Officer and RIVERDALE Showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, directed by Lee Toland Krieger, and produced by Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Brothers Studios. Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schecter, Jon Goldwater, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Lee Toland Krieger serve as executive producers.
SABRINA will draw from the critically acclaimed CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA comic book series from Archie Comics written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and artist Robert Hack, detailing the compelling and shocking re-imagining of Sabrina the Teenage Witch’s occult origins. This dark coming-of-age story deals with horror, the occult, and witchcraft and will see Sabrina struggle to reconcile her dual nature of being half-witch and half-mortal while protecting her family and the world from the forces of evil.
Casting and additional news on the new series will be revealed in the months to come.
Stay up to date on the latest CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA and ‘RIVERDALE’ news by visiting the official Archie Comics website and following us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

I thought Sabrina the Teenage Witch was lighthearted comedy?
When the hell did they reboot it as dark and edgy?

I finally finished it... there's quite a few differences...well, spoiler tag even though few other people seem to care about this show/book story (and for whatever strange reason; only a few of us even read this thread)
like for one, my honey Nora was still alive to the end. Also; Gus was killed...and damn he went out hardcore, man... stood his ground trying to shoot down Stoneheart helicopters while getting eventually torn up in a hail of gunfire.
The Occido Lumen was even more important...since it lead them to the site of Master's origin...which I guess he needed to be killed there for it to count. The final battle scene with Eph, Quinlan and Master also seemed more exciting and eventful in the book, imo. Also-- Eph was NOT turned in the book, and he was the one to set off the bomb...not Zach. The remains of the ancients were also there at the origin site.
The show also never referenced the connection with angels, if I recall. They probably would've done so if the show had more time... 10 episodes is quite a short season. It would've been cool to see that flashback that showed you exactly what "Master" is. It is possible that Setrakian's line in the show *kinda* hints at that---when addressing Master through Eichorst... he acknowledges that he is an ancient evil thing that has hungered for us "since the beginning" (the beginnings of the human race)...something like that.
Minor differences to nitpick--
Women in the "blood-camps" had their heads shaven; either the showrunners or the actresses themselves didn't want to do that level of detail for this, I assume?
Quinlan-- in the book he does look more like "Vaughn". That whole situation is still funny to me...from what I hear, Vaughn was indeed supposed to be "Quinlan"...but something about it wasn't working out or they didn't like how that was shaping up...which is why Vaughn and his crew were unceremoniously killed off...and the character got re-introduced with the actual name "Quinlan" later. Notice that (like some other things)---there was no further reference to Vaughn at all for the rest of the series...haha like he and that crew just never existed
*edit-- I did enjoy the re-designed Quinlan more though... it is more like DMC or Blade, with the cool trenchcoat to go with the sword/gunslinger style. (*random---BRUH, how awesome would it be for someone to mod in a "Quinlan" look for Dante in one of the DMCs?! Holy shit, man.... someone should just make a Quinlan game in the same style... I'd buy it.)

Well, despite not getting caught up on the end of season 2 like I planned, here I am watching the premiere of season 3 Supergirl. Heh, they have "Nathan Petrelli from Heroes" on here now. I still see that guy as that character, even when seeing him in old shit (*like I just recently found out he was in "Near Dark" back in the day)
Of course my honey Supergirl herself, her sis and other girls on the show look absolutely incredible as usual.
"James Olsen" continues to be hilariously miscast. It's really quite the joke.. like if you had a Batman movie and put an elderly homosexual midget from Kenya as Bruce Wayne/Batman...or a fat Mexican woman playing Daredevil. That's how "off" the shit is, imo.
Martian Manhunter spin-off show... someone at CW should really make this magic happen. This character is entirely too awesome to *not* have his own show.
