Comic Television Discussion – Week beginning 16th December 2018

The dark of the year has hit the shows, while only the darkest (Titans) is still working this year.  In case you missed it last week, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina revives the tradition of yuletide ghost stories for the longest night of the year, but otherwise we get a nice long festive break.

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina – S01E00 – A Midwinter’s Tale – The Church of Night, like all covens, celebrates the Winter Solstice — the longest night of the year — when families gather together around the Yule Fire to sing pagan carols, tell ghost stories and huddle against the supernatural creatures that come out to cause mischief. Since the Winter Solstice is when the veil between this world and the next is at its thinnest, it’s the perfect time to conduct a séance — which Sabrina convenes, to try and contact her mother. But the holidays are also a time for guests and visitors — both welcome and unwelcome — and you never know what might come down the chimney.
