Great show
28 December 2002 | by LionessRampantSee all my reviews

I have been hooked on this show since I first saw it on HBO a few years ago. It is based on a children's book and turned out to be a pretty good adaptation. (There is also a movie starring Charlotte Rae) I do not agree with the other review of this show. It isn't about some religion, it is just about girls in an English boarding school. To make it fun and interesting, they made the girls witches. I think it is cool, and the adult actors do a great job (Hardbroom is my favorite of all the characters), there is some real talent in this show. The plots are interesting, and it shows the classic veiw of witches because that is all most people ever see. HBO does not produce this show, it isn't one of there original series. So if it doesn't seem on par with Sex and the City, that's because it isn't. I only have two problems, one is that HBO has dubbed the younger actresses voices, apparently they think Americans can't understand English accents. The second is that HBO only shows the first two seasons of the show. There are three seasons and a sequel show. But, all in all, it's a good time.
