Did You Know?


Throughout the series, a common motif surrounding the character Phoebe was that should she was susceptible to giving up on love. When she summoned her future self, she encountered an unmarried, bitter woman with strong resentments; yet somehow she was willing to sacrifice her life for Cole which may have changed the future in which she never married him. Despite this, it seemed that Cole's ultimate betrayal left such a lasting impact on Phoebe that while watching her from a distance he had to intervene and indirectly convince her never to give up on love. This eventually led to her meeting Coop who became the love of her life. In summoning her future self, Phoebe changed her future of dying to save her old love and made way for her to meet a new one.

Throughout the series, stock aerial footage of San Francisco is used. The footage often contains the Embarcadero Freeway (I-480/CA-480) a structure that used to run along the San Francisco Bay north of the Bay Bridge. The structure was removed in 1991, a full seven years before the series started. See more »


Paige: We're preparing for the big home birth.
Piper: Home birth? You're nuts. I'd never agree to that. I wouldn't give birth unless it was in...
Paige: A hospital. Yeah, yeah, you keep saying the same thing in any reality.

User Reviews

An entertaining show that's really good.
24 July 2002 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

"Charmed" is pretty much your average show about witches, but if you're thinking "Sabrina", you're wrong. Here's a show about three young women that are also witches - the Charmed Ones. They are also sisters. It's all about Piper (Holly Marie Combs), Phoebe (Alyssa Milano) and their long-lost half-sister, Paige (Rose McGowan). The eldest sister is actually Prue (Shannen Doherty) but she was killed of at the end of the third series. So they brought in Paige. Sure, there have been heaps of complaints about Prue being gone and Paige being brought in, but some people actually think Paige is better.

I don't have an opinion on the characters and who's my favourite, but I really like the TV series. If you like "Charmed", then you'll probably also like "Buffy" and "Angel", and perhaps "Sabrina" but that's completely different.

Overall, I reckon "Charmed" is a really good show and recommend people to watch it if you're in that sort of thing - witches, magic and spirits.
