When P3 Becomes a Zoo
21 February 2007 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

On Valentine's Day eve, three college mates of Phoebe buy a witchcraft book to cast a spell seeking dates, transforming animals in humans for twenty-four hours. They tape Phoebe's correct spell and transform a serpent, a rabbit and a pig in men. However, they become humans with animal instinct, threatening and killing people. Meanwhile, Prue feels uncomfortable at home without working and Piper is divided between her love for Dan and for Leo.

"Animal Pragmatism" is a funny episode, mainly when the humans in P3 are transformed in animals and the place becomes a zoo. The story has the usual flaws of this series, without any consequences for the deaths, but entertains. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Instinto Animal" ("Animal Instinct")
