I used to watch this show when I was younger and I remember being really into it, which is why I bought the first season. It was way better than I remembered. Each episode is so hilareous due to clevar writing and a witty cast. Libby, the mean popular girl, is by far one of the funniest characters and the things Sabrina does to get back at her are hugely entertaining. The Aunts are some of the best supporting characters in sitcom history. My family and I watched the whole sitting in three days. We became semi-addicted to it, plus it flys by so fast. Each episode is paced so well that it's not to fast, but it never gets boring. It's a perfect blend of everything you could want in a family friendly sitcom. This is not just for kids or teens, it's for everyone. I can't wait until Season 2 gets released in July and I hope Paramount eventually releases the entire series.

The worst thing about this release is that there are no bonus features. Not even a commentary or a cast retrospective. I still give it 5 stars because the complete series was what I bought it for, but it would have been nice to have Melissa Joan Hart come back and talk a little bit about the show. I mean, it was such a big part of her life. As other people have pointed out, some of the music isn't original due to copyright issues. I can't remember any of the original music from when I used to watch the show, but I didn't think any of the songs sounded out of place, so for the average viewer like me, it shouldn't distract from your enjoyment of the DVDs.

One of the best things about this season set besides the show itself is the case. I have run out of room for big season box sets. Even though this is a 4-disc set, it comes in a standard DVD case.

Sabrina has been a great success in syndication, so much so that it probably delayed its DVD release. It has circulated through the cable networks constantly since before the series finished its original network run, often on more than one cable oulet at a time. I hope this long exposure does not suppress DVD sales and discourage future releases. The show was great in the first season, but really hit its stride in season 2. DVDs for the second (and third) season should follow quickly this release.

I used to love watching this show when I was younger. I'm glad amazon prime has it. I enjoyed watching it again. I hope they add the rest of the seasons.

Oh, man, I'd been hoping and hoping for this first season set to find its way to DVD for a while now, and it is finally here!

I know that my age group or gender probably was not the intended audience for this series, but it captured me after a few episodes in its original run on TV. it works on the level it is supposed to work, but there are so many sly representations of golden age TV in this series that I just could not pull myself away--there is even an appearance by my generation's favorite kids' show host, Chuck McCann in a cameo on what is one of my favorite episodes of the first season, in which Sabrina's best friend, Jenny Kelly, stays with Sabrina for a weekend and curiously finds her way into that closet that sends her, a mortal, into the Other Realm where she meets up with the wonderfully smug and nasty Head of the Witches' Council, played with just the right amount of grease by Penn Gillette, and his secretary who, I believe, is actually played by Debra Harrie of Blondie!!

And this brings up how much I adored the character of Jenny Kelly, a nonconformist free spirit who stands out as a great supporting player in this first season and, if such things are truly important, a good role model to the intended audience! If only Sabrina, herself, listened carefully to Jenny's philosophy, she'd have gotten through her realization that she is "different" so much easier. Jenny is played so enjoyably by Michelle Beaudoin and helps make this first season well worth the money.

I loved this show so much! Developed from a high-rating Showtime Network telemovie, SABRINA: THE TEENAGE WITCH was one of the most popular sitcoms of the late-90's, starring Melissa Joan Hart in the title role. Based around the Archie Comics spin-off, Sabrina Spellman lives with her two wacky aunts Hilda and Zelda in the tight-knit town of Westbridge. Sixteen years old and about to start a new school, Sabrina's life is complicated enough, until Hilda and Zelda reveal that her father is a warlock and, as such, Sabrina too has magical powers. Life as a half-mortal doesn't come easily (for most of the first episode, all Sabrina can conjure is pineapples!), but gradually she learns the "tricks" of her trade.

Melissa Joan Hart is a perky and appealing heroine; her performance as Sabrina glues the whole premise together and gives believability to even the most outlandish plot. Co-starring as Sabrina's well-meaning aunts, Caroline Rhea (Hilda) and Beth Broderick (Zelda) are total scene-stealers with their comic "odd couple" dynamic. Nate Richert plays Sabrina's faithful boyfriend Harvey, and Michelle Beaudoin is her best friend Jenny. Jenna Leigh Green is snooty arch-rival Libby. Nick Bakay provides the voice of Salem, the Spellman family cat, who is actually a warlock forced to spend 100 years as a feline after his attempt at global conquest!

The first season of SABRINA: THE TEENAGE WITCH was marked by top performances from a well-picked ensemble cast, witty scripts and imaginative scenarios. Gradually, as with any top-rating show, the quality seemed to degrade over subsequent seasons (and died a slow death as Sabrina moved on to college 6 years later--without most of the main cast and completely devoid of charm).
