The world has always been under threat from powerful demons...
Girls born into one particular family line are witches with
the power to fight this evil. In the present day The Charmed
Ones are the three Halliwell sisters who have the 'Power Of
Three'. This combined power makes them worthy adversaries
for the modern day demon...
those intrigued by witchcraft at any level and, of course,
any sci-fi fan, Charmed is worth checking out. Although
it sometimes comes across as a bit cheap and tacky, you can
easily find yourself getting sucked into the world of the
three Halliwell sisters.
second season picks right up from where the first left off,
with the trio having accepted their spiritual destiny to be
goodie goodie witches and defeat evil at every corner - thanks
to their special 'Power of Three'.
with the slightly soap opera-esque feel to the series, we
get to follow the sisters through not only their magical lives,
but also their relationships - both with men and each other.
Prue starts and ends relationships whilst growing her powers;
Piper gets to open her club P3 and also ends up in a supernatural
love triangle between her ex 'guardian angel' and next door
neighbour; and Phoebe goes back to college and continues to
be looked upon as the 'baby' of the three.
Two continues to become more humorous and sometimes downright
silly, which adds a little je ne sais qoui to the show.
This aspect is definitely part of its appeal.
out episodes include Morality Bites, which sees the
sisters sent 10 years into the future where one is a successful
business woman, one is divorced with a daughter, and the other
is on death row for murder. In Pardon my Past, we get
to see what their past lives were like, and get to see Phoebe
as evil for the first time. One of the quirkiest episodes
has to be She's A Man, Baby, A Man! where Prue becomes
"Manny" to lure in a man-killing demon. Seeing Shannen Doherty
as a man is something not to miss.
Season Two improves on the first season but still hasn't
hit its pinnacle. It's definitely enjoyable, with a high 'rewatchability'
factor, and it'll definitely have you holding out for Seasons
Three and Four - which fans class as the best.
only downside to this DVD is its lack of extras. Let's hope
this some that is fixed when Season Three is released.
