Charmed's finest episode...
6 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Pre-Witched is to me the best episode of the series, simply because it is flawless. It might not be a very important episode as far as plot development in the overall season-long arc, but it wonderfully executes the present demon storyline with the Charmed Ones' lives before they received their powers. It demonstrates their grandmother's obsession with controlling her granddaughters' destiny and it shows how distant the sisters used to be. The episode has brilliant editing, as well as great performances from the three leads, who have to give themselves up to what they used to be. This might be a very simple episode, but as far as the show goes, it is emotionally charged and I wish they would have done more with their past in the future episodes. Charmed's finest.
