Prue Halliwell: Don't worry. We'll be safe here.

Lori Rom - Charmed Unaired Pilot - It was aired in my area !
11 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

That show was being told as not being aired.

Well I am sorry to burst your bubble just because you did not see it aired in your location does not mean it was not aired ! I saw it. I even had it on VHS for back up.

The show had Lori riding a bike down the street when She got her first premonition.

She saw those boys going to be hit by a car and then she ran into a car and tumbled to the street.

You did not see this with A.Milano version though.

Too bad the 86'd Lori Rom.

The whole show might have taken on a different air and maybe Lori might have gotten along with Shannen eventually...
