Early episodes are fun and innocent. Later episodes better for tweens+

The early episodes are pretty innocent and fun. I think the early episodes are good for kids 7+, maybe even 6. However, as Sabrina grows up and finishes high school and college, the subject matters, humor, etc get slightly more mature. Nothing crazy, but I think the latter seasons are probably better for tweens+

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (14):
Kids say (34):

SABRINA, THE TEENAGE WITCH reminds us that while magic can be helpful, life is about being mature enough to face the consequences of our actions, not waving a wand or reciting a spell. Over the years Sabrina not only learns how to perform spells, but also discovers that magic doesn't offer a "quick fix" for the problems she faces in daily life.

Sabrina's attempts to use magic to help resolve her troubles -- including trying to attend multiple parties at once or resolving squabbles with a high school rival -- usually land her in out-of-this-world situations that have rather negative consequences. With the help of her aunts and Salem, a former warlock turned black cat, each event provides a positive learning experience for Sabrina.
