Did You Know?


Holly Marie Combs was originally going to play Prue and Shannen Doherty was going to be Piper. See more »


The establishing shot of the Manor (the Halliwell house) shows Piper going in the door with a black umbrella with a white stripe around the outer edge. The next shot, from the interior, shows her hanging up a black umbrella with a floral print. This happened because the establishing shot comes from the original, unaired pilot but the interior scene was re-shot. See more »


Piper Halliwell: You know how we've been talking about what to do with that spare room? I think you're right. We do need a roommate.
Prue Halliwell: Well, we could rent out the room at a reduced rate in exchange for help around the house.
Piper Halliwell: Phoebe's good with a wrench.
Prue Halliwell: Phoebe lives in New York.
Piper Halliwell: Not anymore.
Prue Halliwell: What?
Piper Halliwell: She left New York. She's moving back in with us.
Prue Halliwell: You've got to be kidding.
Piper Halliwell: Well, I could hardly say no. It's her house, too. It was willed to all of us.
Prue Halliwell: Yeah, months ago and we haven't seen or spoken to her since.

The Power of Three Will Set Them Free
27 December 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In San Francisco, the police is investigating the murder of many women, and one detective has the theory that they were witches and the killer is a warlock. Meanwhile, Prue Halliwell (Shannen Doherty) is informed by her sister Piper (Holly Marie Combs) that their other complicated sister Phoebe (Alyssa Milano) lost her job in New York and is coming back to live with them in their grandmother's house. Along the night, Phoebe finds a book of witchcraft in the attic called Book of Shadows, and she reads an incantation, giving powers to the three Halliwell sisters. Later, she explains her sisters that in accordance with the book, there are three essentials of magic: timing, feeling and phases of the moon. One of their ancestors called Melinda Warren had three powers: she could move objects with her mind, see the future and stop time. She was burned at stake, but her power was transmitted through generations, becoming stronger and stronger. While the three sisters find their new abilities, the evil warlock chases them to kill them and steals their powers.

This first episode of "Charmed" is a delightful story of witches and witchcraft. The charming trio of lead actresses make this show attractive, worthwhile and promising. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Algo Mágico Pode Acontecer" ("Something Magic May Happen")
