The episode title and all character references to monkeys are in error. The featured primates are chimpanzees, which are not monkeys. The key characteristic of monkeys is a tail, which chimpanzees lack. See more »

Quotes

Evan Stone: You can't fight back. That's like struggling in quicksand. Don't play. Look, whatever energy they're throwing at you just pass right on by, because eventually that energy comes back around and leads to someone else.
Prue Halliwell: Yeah, uh, okay, I-I-I really appreciate the whole wax-on, wax-off approach, but couldn't your people just issue some kind of statement?

Three Monkeys and a Crazy Doctor
23 March 2007 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Dr. Curtis Williamson, who treated the fever of Piper, unsuccessfully insists in calling her for follow-up exams in the hospital. Actually he is researching the blood of the Halliweel sisters in three monkeys. When is accidentally pricked with a blended mixture of their bloods, he becomes insane and evil, killing criminals to steal their organs for donation. Meanwhile, Prue is assigned to photograph Phoebe's idol, the actor Evan Stone, and a paparazzi shots pictures of them, bringing the spots on Prue. Piper tries to establish rules for Leo while staying in her house.

"Astral Monkey" is a silly episode of "Charmed", where Dr. Curtis Williamson from "Awakened" returns totally obsessed, stressed and crazy. But the process of transformation of the dedicated professional in a mad scientist is absolutely shallow. The "ins and outs" of Leo in the Halliwell sisters is an absolute lack of respect, and I believe most of the problems could be solved if Leo rings the bell of the front door like any other guest. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Três Macacos" ("Three Monkeys")
