Mylie, a mermaid, is prepared to sacrifice her immortality to the sea hag, an evil witch who must deliver eternal life to the skeleton demon Necron, in order to share life with her human lover Craig Wilson, a hunky businessman, and needs him to explicitly express his true love for her, which seems utterly pointless fussing to him, so Mylie turns to hearts column writer Phoebe, who is resuming her career, like Paige who even gets a promotion to social worker. Phoebe had thoroughly prepared her divorce on account of Cole's disappearance, but at the very moment the judge was about to sign, his presence completely undoes her plan. Cole has resumed his job as lawyer, and is determined to help Darryl too, whether his impressive magical powers are wanted or not. While the sisters help Mylie, Phoebe gets transformed into a mermaid herself, increasingly subject to the call of the ocean... Written by KGF Vissers

Still Charming
1 December 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Charmed Is In Its Fifth Season And It Still Manages To Entertain. Pheobe, Piper and Paige (Her New Hair Is Great!) Are Back And Are Still Battling Demons As Well As Their Own Personal Ones.

This Episode Revolves Around A Mermaid Called Mylie Trying To Get Her Boyfriend To Confess His Love Otherwise She Is Damned As A Mermaid For Eternity.

This Isn't The Best Start To The Series But It Manages To Entertain As All Kinds Of Mayhem Happens Which We Are Used To By Now. The Only Problem I Had Was With The Sound, They All Sound Like Men Now Which Is Weird But Other Than That, This Is Your Usual Pleasant Charmed Episode That Is Easy To Sit Through But Still Leaves You Excited For The Next Episode.

I'll Give It A 7 Out Of 10.
