With the fifth season of Sabrina The Teenage Witch comes a change to the series. The high school days are behind Sabrina and the college days begin. Sabrina has to adjust to being a college student which includes getting along with her new roommates Roxie, Morgan and Miles. Meanwhile Hilda ends up buying the coffeehouse while Zelda gets a teaching position at the college. Salem is also still up to his old mischievous ways.
One thing all teen dramas/comedies eventually have to deal with (as long as they last long enough) is the post high school years. Since the shows are usually developed in the high school years, these shows typically have to make a pretty big change after the main characters graduate. Some shows do a pretty good job with this task while many others have troubles with the adjustment.
Sabrina really doesn’t fit into either category. As a matter of fact the fifth season of Sabrina is very similar to the first four years. It makes a pretty smooth transition in my opinion. Even with college themed storylines and three new characters, the series still remains pretty similar to the previous four seasons.
Sabrina the Teenage Witch is one of those shows that really lack the laugh out loud moments but still have their fair share of laughs. Sabrina the Teenage Witch is a funny but not really funny if that makes any sense to you. It’s more of a show that is good while it lasts. It’s not really that memorable of show (in my opinion) but you should laugh when you watch it.
Fans of the series should enjoy the fifth season despite it’s lack of special features which is disappointing since it is a pretty recent series. If you have never seen the series before I would recommend checking out the first season if Sabrina the Teenage Witch interests you.
