Headsup: Witches, Superheroes, and Vampire-Snake Hybrids

Sabrina Down Under DVD

If you were a child of the 90s, you probably remember Melissa Joan Hart in her role as Sabrina Spellman, the almost-normal teenage girl who happens to possess magical powers, in Sabrina the Teenage Witch. Based on the Archie comic series (same title), the show ran from 1996-2000 on ABC and then from 2000-2003 on The WB. Now out on DVD is the 1999 spinoff TV movie Sabrina Down Under, where Sabrina goes to Australia along with her magic cat Salem (Nick Bakay) and fellow witch Gwen (Tara Charendoff). While there, Sabrina encounters a colony of mermaids and mermen whose well-being is threatened by pollution and she must call upon her powers as a witch to help them.  Also starring in the film are Scott Michaelson and Lindsay Sloane as mer-people and Peter O’Brien as fame-hungry marine biologist and antagonist Dr. Julian Martin.  The film is available to Hulu subscribers and is available now on DVD on Amazon for $9.99. There are no bonus features with this release, but it should be noted that this is the first time the film has been made available in disc form—-the recent release of Season 7 of the series did include the other tv movie (Sabrina Goes to Rome) as part of the bonus content, but not this one, so if you’re a fan collecting all things Sabrina, this is your chance!

Stuff You Need to Know: Comic-Con in a Nutshell. A Very Large Nutshell.

Ezekiel & Shiva

In case you hadn’t noticed, San Diego Comic-Con just happened. And lots of stuff gets announced and lots of trailers happen and it’s basically just crammed with things. Here, I’ve tried to take the high points of the chaos and condense them into one huge post. There are lots of videos. You might want to go get a sandwich.

  • Firstly, we have tiger. Walking Dead had their Season 7 trailer which held to their desire to keep the Lucilled victim from the end of last season a secret. This is something, to be honest, I’m amazed hasn’t leaked yet considering how the maniacs (read: fans) of the show watch everything they do like overly caffeinated hawks. Regardless, we got a look at Shiva and no doubt the giant feline and Carol got the biggest laughs from Hall H. Khary Payton will be playing the Dread King Ezekiel.

    Your Weekend Justice #241: There’s No Kangaroo Figs in Risk

    ABC After School Special

    It’s Weekend Justice: the Internet’s #1 audio trainwreck…finally back after DragonCon and other things that provide both money and medication. Please Note: this episode was recorded before DragonCon, so this might seem like it came through the TARDIS…but if that makes it make more sense to you, then yeah, sure, go for it. Think that.

    Stuff You Need to Know: Arkham Dentistry Ain’t What It Used to Be…

    Jon Bernthal as The Punisher

    Why sift through a site where there’s a news story for every time any project sneezes? We read it all and we give you a digest version of just the important stuff. You’re busy and have a life. Everything else can wait. Enjoy.

  • First things first…it’s Prime Day at Amazon. You have to be a Prime Member, but hey, grab the 30-day trial membership and rock on with your bad self. You can cancel. Although I don’t recommend it. I use Prime all the time. And everything you purchase by going through us, we get kickbacks for. Thanks!
  • Jon Bernthal was spotted on the set of Daredevil as Frank Castle/Punisher. I’ll miss Ray Stevenson, but I think it works. Source/Photo via Just Jared.
  • Bruce Timm announced that next year should see the premiere of Batman: The Killing Joke as a DC animated feature. That’s…pretty ballsy. I wonder how faithful to that dark-as-hell book they’re going to be? Source.

    Your Weekend Justice #230: Following John Cleese to the End of the World

    ham

    It’s Weekend Justice: the Internet’s #1 audio trainwreck…the podcast that didn’t mean to make some sort of weird John Cleese callback to the Outtakes episode, but did so anyway.

    (Note: I apologize that I’m a bit robo at the beginning but it somehow inexplicably improves shortly thereafter. My actual voice, though, remains as grating as always.)
