This series has nothing to do with wicca
26 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

okay i love this series just as much as i loved the books and Harry Potter for that matter. I am a practicing wiccan. Have been for a goodly number of years. i think it's silly to attribute the bad rep that wiccans get to a show intended for children. the creators, just as with j.k. rowling, do not pretend that the show has anything to do with real witches. it is a fictional work and was not intended to provide a survey of wicca as a religion and those who would confuse the two are likely the same type of people who think harry potter is akin to black magic, so i'm not too worried about their opinions.

mostly i think people have some idea that wiccans are in cahoots with satanists and that gets their knickers knotted and i don't think that's what this show is suggesting. LOL. it's a kiddie show meant for laughs and nothing more. i myself would probably be disconcerted to see the show being more realistic. as much as i like charmed, the fact is that it took plenty of aspects of wicca and distorted or exaggerated them (along with adding a whole mess of fiction) leaving behind a muggy picture of what witches do. i'd be more willing to point the finger at charmed than i would at the worst witch (or it's counterparts, see Harry Potter, Sabrina the Teenage Witch...)
