Trivia

In the pilot, toward the end of the show, Shannen Doherty picks up a newspaper from the sidewalk. The newspaper headline reads "Firemen Doubt Fire was Accidental", the same newspaper prop used in Mrs. Doubtfire (1993), giving Robin Williams's character the idea for the name "Mrs. Doubtfire".

Quotes

Phoebe Halliwell: Hear now the words of the witches, the secrets we hid in the night. The oldest of gods are invoked here. Great work of magic is sought. In this night and in this hour, I call upon the ancient power. Bring your powers to we sisters three. We want the power. Give us the power.

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")
