Storyline

The three Halliwell sisters discover that they are descendents of a line of female witches. Each has a special ability (stopping time, moving objects, seeing the future), and they can also combine their abilities into the "Power of Three" to fight demons, warlocks, and other evils.

Trivia

Warlocks in paganism and witchcraft means "oath breaker" not male witch. Though some men in paganism do prefer to call themselves "warlock" because of various reasons. In Wicca and other forms of Witchcraft, a male witch is traditionally called a witch. The term "witch" is gender neutral in English, but no in other languages. See more »

Goofs

Throughout the series, stock aerial footage of San Francisco is used. The footage often contains the Embarcadero Freeway (I-480/CA-480) a structure that used to run along the San Francisco Bay north of the Bay Bridge. The structure was removed in 1991, a full seven years before the series started. See more »

Paige: Hey, guys. Oh, I'm sorry. Were you ranting?

Imaginative and Engaging
26 August 2002 | by AP-ProjectSee all my reviews

This is a wonderful TV show with great episodes that, in serial fashion, depict a constant battle between good and evil. Evil, as in the Source, is very clever and wears many disguises. This is what's great about this show. Evil is never fully defeated, although the lackeys are destroyed quickly, the greater evil persists. This presents a constant challenge to the Power of Three and they must always be on their guard. Other WB shows allow the hero or heroine to win very easily and the hero or heroine is too sarcastic. Charmed, however, has the right mix of all elements and the writers appreciate that evil forces that are truly dangerous and formidable create a more rich, tense atmosphere. The fourth season was very good, and I liked Rose as Paige very much. The chemistry between the sisters also carries the show and their personalities seem real and three-dimensional, while other shows of this genre fail in that regard. This is one of the best written shows on television. It really deserves more critical recognition and respect, but if that doesn't happen, I'll still enjoy it.
