Introduction:

Magic is in the air once again as "Sabrina, The Teenage Witch" returns for its spellbinding second season! All 26 episodes can be found on this four-disc DVD box set!

Melissa Joan Hart is Sabrina Spellman, a 17-year-old witch, living with her aunts, Hilda, played by Caroline Rhea and Zelda, played by Beth Broderick (Hearts Afire). Another source of comedic situations comes from their cat, Salem, voiced by Nick Bakay. While dealing with outrageous aunts and a moody cat, at school, it is even tougher. She is forced to keep her powers a secret from boyfriend Harvey, played by Nate Richert, as well as her best pal Valerie, played by Lindsay Sloane. Although it isn't an easy task thanks to the plots of rival Libby (Jenna Leigh Green) and her suspicious vice principal, Mr. Kraft, who is played by sitcom veteran Martin Mull.


Memorable Episodes / Notable Guest Stars:

Some memorable episodes include: "Sabrina Gets Her License" Parts 1 and 2 is the one in which Sabrina spends two days at witch boot camp. "A Dolls Story" is the one in which Sabrina baby-sits her trouble-making cousin. "Sabrina The Teenage Boy" is the one in which Sabrina turns herself into a boy. "A River of Candy Corn Runs Through It" is the one in which Sabrina conjures up the 10,000 Maniacs on Halloween. "Witch Trash" is the one in which a trio of bitter hillbilly witch relatives start a family feud. "To Tell A Mortal" is the one in which on Friday the 13th, Sabrina can tell mortals about her secret because everyone's memories will be wiped away the next day. "Sabrina and the Beanstalk" is the one in which Harvey and Sabrina is thrust into their own version of the fairy tale. "Disneyworld" is the one in which Sabrina and the gang head to Disney's 'Animal Kingdom' theme park and "Sabrina's Choice" in which Sabrina plays one aunt against the other.

Memorable guest stars this season include Erik Estrada, Richard Moll, Terri Garr, Davey Jones, Emily Hart, Paul Dooley, Donna D'Errico, 10,000 Maniacs, Loni Anderson, Alice Ghostley, Edie McClurg, Tom Poston, Drew Carey, Bobcat Goldwaith, Bob Vila, Johnny Mathis, John Ratzenberger, Shelley Long, Backstreet Boys, Buddy Hackett, RuPaul, Kenan Thompson, Kel Mitchell, Fred Willard, Donald Faison, and more!


Packaging:

The main style of the box is a snap case, much as movies are packaged in, except these are clear. A teal and white colored theme is used. On the cover of the box is a large photo of Melissa Joan Hart, with Salem the cat. The back of the box features a few photos from the series as well as another of Joan Hart. Inside the box is a list of episodes, their titles, original airdates and the discs they can be found on.

The discs themselves are silver/gray in color and feature the logo as well as a list of what episodes are on that disc.

Disc 1 contains episodes 1-6. Disc 2 contains episodes 7-12. Disc 3 contains episodes 13-19. Disc 4 contains episodes 20-26.


Menu Design and Navigation:

The menu is very simple. It starts up right away and features a picture on the left hand side of the screen, such as on Disc 1, it uses the same picture of Hart that is seen on the front of the box. The menu itself is simple, as I said, and features a "Play All" option and a list of the episodes.


Video and Audio Quality:

Video is very good. Although the show is actually 10 years old (from the start of this season), it really is in great shape. The audio is fine...nothing much to be worried about. Episodes are most likely uncut, as 21 to 22 minutes is the norm for sitcoms of this day and age ... although, there is a disclaimer on the back that states "Some episodes may be edited from their original network versions. Some music has been changed for this home entertainment version." Therefore, I think the ones closer to 22 minutes are probably the unedited ones and the ones in the low 21 minute range has probably a scene or two cut due to music rights.

Special Features:

For the second season in a row, not a single bonus feature. CBS DVD once again drops the ball but it is not very surprising. Although it is great to have this show on DVD, it is another generic, basic release.


Final Comments:

Hmm...what to say? Well, to say I am disappointed is an understatement. CBS DVD did a very basic and boring release, yet again. They in all honesty need to start stepping it up. No bonus features, edits (most are likely music related) and a generic package. Other than that, I'm still very happy the series is coming out on DVD and as a fan of the show, I still would encourage you to go out and buy this, as it's probably the best we'll be getting.


Final Numbers (out of 5 stars - How our point system works)

Video Quality: 4.5/5
Audio Quality: 4.5/5
Special Features: 0/5
Menu Navigation/Design: 2/5
Overall: 4/5
