Sabrina the Teenage Witch (TV) Review


I recently decided to take a step back to my childhood and purchase Sabrina the Teenage witch box set on DVD. I will admit though that it wasn’t totally random I actually saw season one for £2.99 in HMV and I picked it up but then decided what was the point in buying just season one? So I then went to the best place to buy well anything online with Amazon and it was £29.99 for the box set containing all seven seasons!


I had thought about doing separate reviews for each season but then realised that no one would want to read all of those so decided to condense it into one bigger review and after I finished a season I would then update it. Not that the seasons take very long to watch, something that is amazing with the earlier episodes at least is that I can still remember everything about them. It’s also great to see so many famous guest stars too. What I hadn’t remembered about was the constant changes in cast and therefore new friends for Sabrina.

2016 at the Theatre

Here I go with an overview of my 2016 of theatre trips to see musicals and plays. Touring shows that have come to the North East at the Theatre Royal in Newcastle and the Sunderland Empire. As well as managing to have a few trips down to London to take in what the West End has to offer! You can check out the list of shows here. I have somehow managed to out do 2015 catching 31 shows in 2016!


Do you hear the people sing? Let’s take a look back at my 2016 at the Theatre.

Now You See Me (2013) Review

Thanks to a secret screening at Cineworld, where the audience had no idea which film we had got tickets to see. This film had a sneaky preview on Monday night. Was very pleased when we found out it was this film, as the trailer has been going around for quite a while now and it had built up suspense surrounding this film. That is something that does not disappoint . . .

The Harry Potter World

I have eventually well and truly entered the Harry Potter world and I love it! Yes I have now seen all of the films and very much looking forward to the release of the Deathly Hallows: Part II. But up until seeing Part I last year I hadn’t even seen all of the films (Yes that did cause some confusion as somethings that were going on I had no clue about). But since seeing that film I bought the full collection of the books and over the past week I have read the 3rd and half way through the 4th and they really are just fantastic. Whilst reading I keep thinking why haven’t and didn’t I read these years ago! I was the ideal age when the first one was released that J.K. Rowling was going for.

This has inspired me to re-enter the film world after reading the books, which in all honesty probably won’t take me much longer as they are so addictive to read. Loving every second of them. So well written and thought out. I know doing it the wrong way round after seeing the films but everyone keeps telling me that the differences are easy to notice while getting further through the books.

In the build up to the final film release my blog is going to be totally taken over by Harry Potter! I plan on top 10 lists, a deep look into the characters and in general a celebration of the most successful British film franchise of all time. How many actors are involved and how important it really has been in the film industry. A lot of my favorite British actors have featured in the Potter films as well.
