Originally Valerie Cruz auditioned for the part of Susan and Rebecca Mcfarland auditioned for the role of Murphy. Cruz, who read the original book, thought she fit the physical description of Susan. See more »
I just discovered this show on Netflix and am amazed that something so brilliant, engaging and well-written was canceled after only one season.
The characters are well-developed, the cast is believable and the storyline is engaging.
Compared to the reality drivel that has taken over television and cable this was like reading Shakespeare - engaging for those that like to have their brain cells teased a little bit instead of being "dumbed-down" by over-dressed idiots that can't act and think that behaving like a sociopathic idiot is entertainment.
I think commercial interests (e.g. paying sponsors), were put off by the fact that the good guy practices magic and wiccan symbols were displayed in a positive light (e.g. used to suppress evil energies) vs. traditional religious symbols. For the record my religious affiliation is Christian and I am not offended.
The "powers that be" made a mistake, I would pay for a second season!
