Phoebe is feeling heat and arouse, and finds that she is connected to a
Sucubus and witnessing her murders. Prue casts a spell to attract the
Sucubus to destroy her, and becomes a man instead. Piper feels a great
attraction for Dan Gordon, but does not know how to approach to him.
Meanwhile, she is preparing the P3 for a concert of The Cranberries.
"She's a Man, Baby, a Man!" is a very nice episode of "Charmed". The Halliwell sisters have the chance to understand men with the transformation of Prue, and they resolve their situations with her mates. The participation of the Irish band The Cranberries with the beautiful voice of Dolores O'Riordan is a plus in this good and delightful show. My vote is ten.
Title (Brazil): "Ela É um Homem!" ("She Is a Man!")

The key idea for that plot was quite risky, but it works very nicely.
The great strength of the episode is to combine two plots that work as
one : Prue's transformation into a man and the succubus case. Plus the
great opportunities offered by the dating company, which allow Piper to
make a move forward in her relationship with Dan. Prue's first minutes
as a man are quite awkward, especially as she's got a very feminine
face and a slight build that no amount of make-up can really disguise,
but as the episode progresses you kind of accept that she's a man. The
scene where "Manny" practises being manly by mimicking Dan is
hilarious. But the best moment is when Piper dresses her down for
becoming exactly the kind of macho man Prue couldn't stand. (The kind
that receives a rather adequate punishment for letting his testosterone
This leads us to the plot with the succubus : it is original, and I appreciate the fact that for once it's Darryl who comes to the sisters for help, and not the other way round. The man doesn't even know their secret, but he trusts them to solve his problem. My only complaint here is that the psych-link between the succubus and Phoebe is never explained. Granted, Phoebe is more associated with lust than her elders, but it doesn't explain the connection. Just a passing mention of some forgotten encounter with the succubus would have done the job, I think.
