Storyline

When Sabrina is apprehensive about inviting Jenny to spend the night because of her "unique" home life, Hilda and Zelda assure her that she has nothing to worry about. But when Jenny accidentally enters the other realm through the linen closet, Drell cites the rule against mortals entering his world and turns her into a grasshopper, so Sabrina and her aunts must find a way to convince her that the whole experience was just a dream.

I Dream of Genies

You can get great style tips looking at Sabrina The Teenage Witch. Everything is 90's right now. I was delighted to discover me and Harvey share a hair cut. Sabrina is wearing a felt top in this episode that I think is so on point its probably a year away. Shame I'm not a girl. I suppose I could buy myself by a felt close-fitting t-shirt with buttons but men and women's clothes, unfortunately do not always have counter parts for each other. My cousin did turn up with a felt t-shirt around christmas and looked great; if not a little reminiscent of Star Trek.

Sabrina reluctantly invites Jenny over for a sleep over at the insistence of H&Z. Sabrina has been revelling in the normality of Jenny's family and does not want to introduce Jenny to the bizzarity of hers. I thought this was understandable to be honest. Anyway; Jenny eventually ends up in the other realm and it is up to Sabrina to get her out. The realm is rendered by two set pieces that are far from movie quality. As a kid; low production value used to really bother me but as an adult I have to commend STTW for always going high concept and worrying about production later.

There is something very odd about one woman in her early twenties dressed in a victorian nightgown telling another that she wishes that "other realms like Narnia" exist in a game of Tell Me Your Secret. I mean you would think that maybe Jenny would reveal that she has a crush on a teacher or that she was high the other day when they all went to the cinema. I realise now I am just desperately jealous I don't have a friend I trust enough to tell that I wish other realms like Narnia exist. I alway say "when I was 15...". Well guess what? Nothings changed. I still wish Narnia was real but I have stopped feeling the backs of wardrobes.

Jenny really grew on me in this episode. Whereas Sabrina is obsessed with conformity and status; Jenny actively embraces counter-culture and is very open to new experiences. There is something charming about how readily she accepts the surreal situation she finds herself in.

There are some genuinely funny moments in this episode ,such as when Sabrina Screams "Hey let's race. Look your winning!" while pushing Jenny from behind, and it manages to fit with the overarching themes of conformity while providing fresh narrative.
