Here comes another… TV show of the week!!! (For real though guys, I’m contemplating stopping this series, I still have absolutely loads planned but I’m just not sure anyone would find them interesting and some of my readers may find them boring and repetitive, let me know in the comments your honest opinions!! don’t worry, I wont get offended haha).
I’ll get on with this weeks now!!
Charmed is about four sisters (although there are only ever three in each series, watch to find out why) Prue, Piper, Phoebe and Paige.
The Halliwell sisters find out that they all are good witches, each with their own unique power, which they use to stop Demons and help innocents.
When and Where?
So I’m pretty sure Charmed is still on Netflix, at least I hope it is because I’m really feeling a binge session soon!! You can also catch it every weekday at 7am on E4. I know, way too early, but I always watch it whilst getting ready on Thursday mornings (my only early day for university).
Why I started watching it?
As far as I can remember, My dad and Momma P would often watch this of an evening and I think I was the only one of my sisters who just loved it!! I would watch it whenever I saw that it was on, until finding out that my fabulous auntie Catherine had all 8 series on box sets (before the Netflix days, obviously), and so I borrowed each one and watched every episode.
Why do I love it?
There is just something about the power of the sisters, not only literally, but in themselves as well, the way they get through life having to keep such a big secret from majority of their loved ones that I just love.
Their relationship with each other just makes me so happy. Having two sisters myself (like I mentioned earlier, although there are four Halliwell sisters, there are only ever three at any one time), I feel like we could definitely be the Halliwell Three. I’m ready to defeat Demons and Vanquish them 100%. Get me in that Halliwell Manor with the Book Of Shadows, I’m ready.
A girl can dream hey.
I absolutely love the last season, we have Chris, Wyatt, Billie (played by The Big Bang Theories Kaley Cuoco) who I just love. But most of all, I LOVE(!!!!!!) the last episode. I don’t think there has ever been a time I’ve watched the last episode without crying, even though I know exactly whats going to happen, happy tears, but I can’t help myself.
What I dislike about it?
Honestly, I’m really not a fan of season one. Even though this show is very old, I don’t want to ruin it for anyone who may decide to watch it. For those of you who have seen it, you’re likely to understand what I mean by this. I also don’t like the theme tune in season one. Weird, I know, but I just prefer everything about the other seasons.
The one thing I don’t like about Phoebe, is the way they tried to sexualize her way too much. I felt like the costume department would do everything they could to have her be half naked, take the photo below for example, this was a fairy tale Demon and she was supposed to be dressed like Cinderella, so tell me why she looks like she’s about to be in an adult version of the much loved Disney film? It was tasteless and unnecessary.
Least Favourite Character
This was a hard decision for me because I love them all, but apart from the reason I hate the first season which I don’t want to say for anyone who hasn’t seen it, Cole and Christy are definitely my least favourite characters. They just cause too much trouble and I don’t enjoy the episodes with them in, especially how they change the way my favourite characters act.
So if you like programmes with magic, sisterly bonds, and real life issues (it does actually show real like problems the sisters go through as well, away from all of the magic), then you’ll definitely love Charmed.
Have you watched it or ever thought of watching it? Let me know what you think in the comments. Be sure to let me know what you think of this series also.
Bye for now
