Goofs

In several episodes (mostly from season 5 onward), you can see ceiling segments missing from the manor when low angle shots are used. The ceiling panels are in large square, sometimes rectangular segments that are able to be removed to position studio lights for certain shoots. In many scenes these are missing, revealing the open studio space above the set. See more »

Imaginative and Engaging
26 August 2002 | by (CT) – See all my reviews

This is a wonderful TV show with great episodes that, in serial fashion, depict a constant battle between good and evil. Evil, as in the Source, is very clever and wears many disguises. This is what's great about this show. Evil is never fully defeated, although the lackeys are destroyed quickly, the greater evil persists. This presents a constant challenge to the Power of Three and they must always be on their guard. Other WB shows allow the hero or heroine to win very easily and the hero or heroine is too sarcastic. Charmed, however, has the right mix of all elements and the writers appreciate that evil forces that are truly dangerous and formidable create a more rich, tense atmosphere. The fourth season was very good, and I liked Rose as Paige very much. The chemistry between the sisters also carries the show and their personalities seem real and three-dimensional, while other shows of this genre fail in that regard. This is one of the best written shows on television. It really deserves more critical recognition and respect, but if that doesn't happen, I'll still enjoy it.
