Did You Know?

The executive producers pitched an idea for a season three that would continue the heavy themes of the show. If things had gone according to plan, instead of "Avatar", there would have been "Chrysalis". "Chrysalis" would have had a similar Fi-lite adventure in which Carey would have turned out to have an alcohol problem alongside playing host to a parasitic caterpillar, and Jack would have helped him out. At the same time, there would be a revisit of Rebecca from 1x09 "Rebecca" where she was going to make contact with Molly through email, and Molly's back-story as an alcoholic would have been explored. This was all to be set up for Rebecca's role in season three. Additionally, 2x26 "Twin" would have had Rick reveal Fi had some special destiny and would have ended with the wraith taking him out, leaving the threat of an evil alliance out there and giving Fi the motivation to investigate it to rescue her father. In season three, Jack would have ended up being the reincarnation of some ancient heroic knight-thus explaining why the dragon was afraid of him in 1x08 "Strangeling", and why a shot of him fades into an O'Siannon suit of armor in 2x11 "Banshee". Rebecca would have shown up to explain who Jack was in a past life, having known him personally. Jack would have joined Fi to fight the evil alliance. The aliens, which never do anything in the first two seasons past being mysterious, would have revealed that Fi has some special genetic makeup that makes her and various beings like her throughout the galaxy specifically qualified to help people. She would have been visited by her alien counterpart, who also had a father stolen by the forces of evil, and it would have helped her with information throughout the season. Molly's witch powers would have been explored, with the reveal that some of her songs are prophecies. Bricriu would have possessed Fi herself, and Molly's priest brother would have exorcised her. Bricriu would ultimately switch sides because he doesn't like being in a hierarchy. The series would have ended with Fi traveling into Hell, defeating the evil alliance, and rescuing her father. Because the alliance took Rick before his time, he would have been allowed to stay on Earth with his family. This is all foreshadowed in the "In the Darkness" song. Disney rejected all of this and demanded the lighter season three that we got.See more »

Great Supernatural Show, 4 August 2005
Author: Kristen (twilightessence) from California, USA

Despite being a "kids" show this is one of the better supernatural shows on TV. Much like a pre-teen X-Files. Unfortantly, the producers ruined the show by replacing the main character in the third season. The first two seasons revolve around Fiona "Fi" Phillips a 13-year-old who lives on the road with her musician mom Molly, her brother Jack, and the roadie Bell family.

The show is surprisingly dark for a kids show and each show is eerie and original with Fi finding new and mysterious things in every town she comes to. The center of Fi's obsession (which is what the supernatural is) is her father who died in a accident but who was into the same things as Fi.

Fi has to deal with normal teenage stuff as well as the supernatural stuff. Her family often worries about her "hobby" and how it effects her which gives the show a great family dynamic. The original cast had amazing chemistry together and you really could feel the family element.

While Alexz Johnson as Annie did a okay job in her role it changed the whole feel of the show. The show had always been dark until Annie came along when it suddenly became colorful and a little cheesy... more like a kids show then a good supernatural show. Unlike Fi, Annie tended to stumble into the situations she encountered as opposed to Fi who often went looking for the paranormal. Also, the family thing no longer existed with Annie like it did with Fi... The only really good thing about season 3 was there was more music. Though for GREAT So Weird music see the last episode of the second season (Molly's concert) is the best show to watch.

Speaking of music, this show has great music. I want a soundtrack!
