Charmed Thread!


http://flamindevil.files.wordpress.com/2009/01/charmed.jpg

I was searching and couldnt find any Charmed threads so i thought i could start one. Im a really big fan of charmed, i have all the box sets! :D

I don't consider myself as a fan! I haven't watched all the seasons.
But I really enjoyed watching it!
My favourite was Piper! I wish it could continue....:(

Yes! I have the DVD set. I have been re-watching Series 4.

I got into the series quite late and didn't see many episodes with Pru, so I didn't have any adjusting to do to get used to Paige. It was good to see the first three series to compare. :)

@Marrianna, I believe there are fan made eps on youtube. I don't know how they do it, the editing is amazing. I've seen a few, you should look them up.

Yh, before every night i used to watch about 3 episodes from beginning to end. Once you watch it all the way through its really sad at the end. :(

Plus did anyone else notice that series 1 is about Prue and andy, series 2 is about Piper, leo and dan, and series 3 is about phoebe and cole! and series 4 is about paige :p strange.

Dows anyone remembers the Morality Bites episode? It was set in 2009 back in 1999!

I'd choose those powers too.

Yeah it was sad. You could tell as the series progressed how the acting improved too.

Some of the things that Piper does just cracks me up, like on Series 5: the one with the siren woman who kisses men and kills then, the part at the hospital when she says "Kiss this *****!" :vlol: and flowers come out.

This show made my world! Seriously I remember the first episode i ever watched. I was about nine and it was the episode "bite me." I always saw previews for it but never knew what station it was on. I loved magic and witchcraft and all that jazz when I was that age, and this show blew my mind. I watched it loyally until it ended in May 2006. I cried my eyes out to the point where I was heaving. Charmed is the best show ever. I had to wean myself from watching it for about 2 years after the last episode "forever charmed" because everytime I watched an episode i would cry. Now i still watch it from time to time. I'm so glad there's a thread for this.
Long live the power of three:)

27-05-09, 21:31
Yh, i have to admit i did cry as well :( It was hard not to with the sad music at the end and slowly looking at the portraits up the stairs, coz in ur mind ur thinking "its all over now":( I was dissapointed that there wasnt 1 picture of prue on the wall, not even the one at the beginning of the series which moved the sisters together :mad:

i cried at prues funeral aswell :( Thats the only 2 times ive cried of charmed! Prues funeral and the end!

The books are really good. Its like an episode that lasts for hours! I really enjoy reading em. Some of them are a little goofy, but most are a good read for a Charmed fan. The warren witches is the best one thus far. Haunting desire is also a good one.

I would have to say that either Paige or Prue was my favorite. I loved their powers and personalities. Paige satisfied the whole playful, comic relief side with an edge, while Prue satisfied the super witch, ass kickery side :mis:

My fav episodes are Primrose Empath, Sight Unseen, As the eyes have it, and The day that magic died.

Use to love charmed. I always loved Pipers power the most. The show was much better with Prue imo. One episode that clearly stood out to me was the one where they go to the future and there powers were multiplied and they had to stop Phoebe from being burnt. What was this ep called?

Dorian Gregory (Darryl Morris) is a diabetic in real life

Alyssa Milano is claustrophobic, she even made them put in her contract she wouldn't have to be in tiny enclosed places

Shannen Doherty (Prue) has Crohn's Disease. If you don't know what that is, it's a problem in the intestines that makes that she can't eat anything, she has to follow a diet and she has to take pills. But don't worry!! She's maybe stuck with it for the rest of her life, but she can't die of it

The T.W. in T.W. King (Andy) stands for Theodore William

Use to be a fan. The series lost it's juice after season 4. Season 5 was OK, but nothing special. 6 and 7 were stupid, and 8 was simply the worst of the lot.

Living TV has repeated show so many times, that it got boring to watch, even the first 4 seasons.

Everything went downhill from there.

I loved and adored Charmed...up until the 5th season. You could really tell that writers were running out of juice by that point and the production values plummeted. I was and always will be an avid Prue/Shannen fan.

It all went downhill when Prue died :(

I liked her so much, She was the most powerfull

It really did. But Paige did a nice job filling in as the cosmic "spare tire". But combined with Prue's death, and the fact that Charmed should've ended with season 4, the writers had run out of ideas by that point. I also dislike the fact that Prue's existence was virtually ignored after season 4. I mean all those years, and not a single picture of her or remnant that she once lived there? Something. I understand there were legal issues between Shannen and the creators using her image, but she allowed it after season 6 (and flashbacks don't count) . And they totally just brushed off her death so casually in the series finale.

This thread makes me miss my old theprophecy forums.

^^^^^^^^

It was a shame that she did leave but it did give the show a twist in the story coz otherwise it would have got a bit boring :)

That already happened even after her death. Paige was good and I cannot guarantee that Shannen would've kept the show fresh, but its the creativity of the writers that just...died. You can tell in how stale the later seasons get. Although being a main character, I believe Prue deserved a better sendoff than some cheap cliffhanger with no real explanation as to how she died. Although I suppose it leaves room for discussion.

Remember that this happened like two or threee months ago!

Immortalis08
28-05-09, 23:07
Absolutely loved that episode and the theme behind it was excellent. Protect the innocent is far different than punishing the guilty. It was such a great episode and amazing to see how far their powers would go. Prue would have been unstoppable in 2009. It was so emotionally charged especially at the end. I could never make the same decision Phoebe made. Wow, I cannot believe that was aired 10 years ago.

See that is what made the earlier seasons special. They had some point or moral that they tried to get across. It was about sisters that happened to be witches. In the later episodes it changed to just vanquishing another demon, and witches that happened to be sisters.

Exactly! I remember how moral the Lady Godiva episode could have been, but wasn't... Piper was turned in some sort of Jar-Jar-Binks saying sarcastic nonesence and hating/beating Leo for almost everything. They also removed the teenage-like paige attitude to a more Prue-like, see i didn't like that.

Immortalis08
28-05-09, 23:16
Indeed, Piper's character development was unstable. First she couldn't decide whether she wanted magic in her life, then she decides to be normal, then back to magic, and so on. Poor Leo had to be dragged through mud the entire time and all she did was complain about him.

As for Paige, I always liked the fact that Prue was immortalized and legendary in her eyes. Paige would always strive to be a good replacement for Prue, until she finally learned she couldn't be another Prue, she had to be herself. Although I must say, there were times near the end of the series that she reminded me of down to the style,hair, and attitude. Oh how I wished there were a scene where she and Prue would meet.

What I didn't like were the inconsistencies and contradictions. In comes season 5 and the prophecy that stated the Charmed ones were going to be most powerful is made invalid with the birth of Wyatt. And then small little lines like Paige asking Piper how she defeated *the source last time*

Mokono
28-05-09, 23:19
Didn't she met her as a cat? Or may be my imagination. However, some fan made a video about it, but i can't find it anywhere.

Immortalis08
28-05-09, 23:22
Hmm? No I do not believe so. I think you might be thinking of the episode in season 5 when the familiar cat becomes a human and Phoebe and Paige travel back in time through Piper's flashbacks.

When Prue is transformed into a dog she sort of does meet Paige and Phoebe in that same episode by the stairs and Paige is in the room behind Prue when she crashes Piper's Wedding. So in a sense I suppose they did meet, but not formally. Prue wouldn't have known that was her sister.

The thing i never understood that The charmed ones mother and grams was dead and they kept coming back to life for a while but it was not aloud to do so with prue. I no she cant coz shes not in the show but when grams says "Ur not aloud to see her, coz seeing her now would always make her alive for you!" <-- but how come they can talk to their mother and grams when their dead so they cant move on :confused:

It was just a cheap excuse in the script. Shannen Doherty really hurt the show by leaving it from one day to another (and i'm not mentioning her fights with Alyssa Milano). Also, in the episode they travelled to Piper's wedding with Paige, you can only see Prue's back, cause they were using a double for that scene in the original episode, wich doesn't infringe her cease of contract.

Is it okay to bump this? :o I do have news:

Hiding her third pregnancy from the media due to what was cited as "high-risk" condition, "Charmed" actress Holly Marie Combs finally breaks her silence about her third child. She reveals to Celebrity Baby Blog that she has given birth to another baby boy on May 26.

The newborn infant is named Kelley James Donoho. He was delivered by emergency C-section at 35 weeks. He joins older brothers; Finley Arthur Donoho and Riley Edward Donoho.

Thread bump!

Yeah so not really since here it's three months but on the forum I'm more used to it's one month. Anyway....I am a massive Charmed fan and I decided to search the forums about it on a whim and also because of the OP's avatar and this thread turns up, but anyhow since many of us here are gamers or at least have some expertise in gaming, I was thinking maybe we could do a charmed videogame based on the Tomb Raider Level Editor that's standalone like the people doing the Tomb Raider Angel of Darkness 2 (ENCORE Studios if I'm not mistaken) or we could possibly develop some mods based on the 'Source' engine. Maybe we could even do a fully fledged game based on an open source engine (the unreal engine is now free to download!)

Now onto Charmed the TV Show

I watched Long Live the Queen (4x20) yesterday and I think it might've been one of the best Charmed episodes ever, it was only one of the very few episodes of Charmed were I got that hard to swallow feeling. I think the fourth season was the best, it was like the culmination of three years of suspense. Apart from the (for me) surprisingly good seventh season as well as a few select gems from the other three seasons (Chris Crossed, Kill Billie Vol 2, Centenial Charmed and Forever Charmed) the rest was way too light for me to take seriously. In fact the only things season eight was good for was the moments when the Charmed ones were under some hex and did some evil things to Billie like in Repo Manor when Paige was impersonated and said 'I don't even know why the hell you're still here' and orbed Billie to the front porch or when she was like 'Lets kill her' and threw a boulder at Billie.

The inside isn't proportioned to be equal with the outside, so I'm not sure if it was intentional to seem like the house had some sort of spell on it to make it bigger inside, or they just thought people wouldn't notice that they built the sets too big. :/

They only use the sets for exterior shots as you said, but in the original pilot they used the inside of the real manor to shoot, I don't know whether they always planned to do that but found it was too small and built the set:

Season 8 was the weakest for me.

The best one I think would be season 4. After Prue died, the shows suffered a bit, not because Shannon/Prue were the best, because I prefer Rose/Paige, but it was a bit...weird how magically the forth sister showed up, yet they could bring Prue back after the countless time they had already cheated death. Other than that, season 4 was definitely the best.

The show went low when they started fighting fairytales and stuff. After Cole's final death, it felt like they just ran out of ideas. I was never really a fan of the vanquishes either. Sing a rhyming song and a demon dies...

I definitely agree that the first two seasons were the best. Shannen Doherty basically gave that show life. She was said to be pretty hard to work with but dammit if she didn't make that show! Seasons 4-8 were great, but without Doherty's authority, the initial integration of the occult were gone in favor of more fantasy-oriented material.

Season 6 was by far the worse, the production value dropped so much during that season, reusing sets but badly redressed so it was evident, Hollie being pregnant and not a major part of the latter half of the series,leading to a heavy emphasis on other, non core characters such as Richard to compensate, Drop in story quality I mean, 'Witch wars' a reality TV show for demons and a random council, which we have never met nor heard of before that takes away phoebes powers? What the hell is that about. Season 7 was better and Season 8 would have been a return to form, had it not had to incorporate Billie and Christie so heavily now to mention the fact that everything was solvable with a potion!

My order of preference for the series is;

1. Series 2
2. Series 1
3. Series 4
4. Series 5
5. Series 3
6. Series 8
7. Series 7
8. Series 6

I loved the show with Prue, but I also loved Paige. They were my two favorite characters but I didn't like the fantasy based **** of the seasons with Paige in it. I mean I still liked the show, but I was more for the occult feel of it rather than the over the top fantasy-esqueness of seasons 4 forward. When Constance M Burge quite and Brad Kern took ever the direction of the show completely changed. The last few seasons got especially retarded though I did sit through it and watch it for the characters that I had grown attached to. The Golden years will always be seasons 1-5 for me. afterwards it got kinda weak. Billie was an okay addition but her acting was kinda eh for me. That's all I have to say about the show. Loved it and miss it dearly. Just wish it ended on a better note (even though the last episode made me sob pretty ridiculously)

I loved Charmed so much, Watched it all the time. <3

Paige was my favorite. :D

That's the thing, Grams and Penny are dead, but they show up as ghosts but yet Prue never did, but What bugs me, there were no photos of Prue at the Series finale...

Wasn't there some sort of issue with Shannon and Alyssa?

16-05-11, 06:30
I don't think it's ever been officially stated, but there were rumours the two didn't get on. Considering Hollie and Shannen were, and still are friends I think that's the logical explanation.

Peronally I liked Prue, but I don't think the show would have lasted as long with her still in it. Her character didn't have much room for growth, which halted the growth of Piper and Phoebe, plus Paige's powers gave the show much more flexibility!

Today I watched the episode in which Paige believes she's responsible for her parents' death. The whole thing was interesting but I did not expect from Paige to have been such a dick when she was young. The most funny parts, I believe, were when Phoebe and Cole were possesed by the two spirits xD.

It's being rebooted, which is absurd. The show is too iconic for this. Hollywood likes killing my childhood one series at a time.

http://ew.com/tv/2018/01/25/charmed-reboot-pilot/

Here’s the network’s official new description for the new incarnation of Charmed: “This fierce, funny, feminist reboot of the original series centers on three sisters in a college town who discover they are witches. Between vanquishing supernatural demons, tearing down the patriarchy, and maintaining familial bonds, a witch’s work is never done.”

Vomitorium.

Tombraider95
27-01-18, 09:26
That's so odd. I recently got back into Charmed as my partner and I I are going to watch it from the start as he's never seen it. So I've recently googled Charmed Reboot to see if anything has happened, I guess I just missed it!

I've always wanted them to do a reunion/movie with all 4 original sisters first because they've all agreed to do it, but I don't get why CW hasnt done that first, then do a Reboot after. I'm curious to what it would be like because I miss Charmed a lot, but it's sad that it looks like the original 4 sisters won't be together again.

Mani_Man
27-01-18, 10:20
Is there anything that doesnt have a Thread around here?:D
I really didnt expect one for Charmed.

Its one of those good old 90s shows that i really miss because it was really "charming".

I know there is a comic out there with 3 or 4 seasons i think, hadnt had time to look into it.

Was a reboot really necessary? Last i heard was that the whole cast would be down to a reunion or a series that focused on the characters kids etc.

Throwing it all out of the window for a complete reboot seems rather dumb.
Also the description already sounds awful as it gets.
"Feminist Reboot of the original series?" "Tearing down the patriarchy?"

Have they even watched the show at all?

This makes me really wish that any studio stays the hell away from buffy and lets us keep the comics.

27-01-18, 10:33
As someone who watched every episode when I was younger, I tried to get back in and I just... couldn't.
It really didn't age well and while we can appreciate the show for what it was, something cheesy and entertaining, today's generation might not even be aware of the show's existence to begin with.

I'm not too bummed by this "reboot", if we can call it that considering it might be set in the same universe as the original series. I'm curious to see how it could turn out.

So the reboot is actually happening? Good! Maybe this time we'll get a series that actually tries instead of just giving up after the one person who tried got the boot (Shannen Doherty legit was the best part of the series, the season 3 ending she directed amazingly and acted the living hell out of!). I'm re-watching the series right now, and I'm actually shocked at how terrible a lot of aspects of the series are. Especially the characters of Piper post season 1 where she becomes a very selfish character. And where to even begin about Phoebe... Well let's ignore most of it and just jump to the worst part so far and just go straight to Cole (also, wow does this series just want to be Buffy with these two) wants to lose his Demon part of himself, but was under a spell which caused him to kill a witch, see saw it happening right in front of her with her own eyes like two meters in front of her! So instead of giving him the potion right there on the spot without a single hesitation so he can never do something like that again, she destroys the potion at his feet. What the hell is your problem you dumb bitch?! Every single person that dies at his hands from there on out are her fault, and a lot of people die at his hands from here on out also. Well so much for saving the innocents! Also it's some of the most contradictory series ever, it's all about female empowerment, yet every single freaking episode is nothing but: boys, boys, boys, boys, dating, boys, boys, boys, condoms, boys, boys, boys, sex, demons, boys, boys, boys, neighbor Dan, boys, boys, boys, boys, sex, boys, boys, boys, credits.

Now to give credit where credit is due, yes there is a good underlying idea in the series. It's just no one on the crew seemed to have understood what made Buffy so great story wise (or any of the other series at the time for that matter). The big bad being a overarching story element and a story element that was a creative way to teach life lessons. But Charmed never really goes there, at best it goes there for a single episode to teach them a life lesson and they just drop it the very next one. The series is at times just barely reaching that line of becoming amazing, but it always stumbles when it's getting near that point. So I'm all up for a series that takes the best elements of this series and puts the wrongs right, I'd be all over it.

27-01-18, 16:39
I did really love watching Charmed when I was younger. The sisters were awesome, and it certainly had that easy watch appeal to it.
What I loved about the original, the main cast was comprised of three woman, but it was never felt overstated. Even the male characters had mutual grounds of respect. I guess this is because it was made in a time before third wave feminism was a big thing, thus shows like this were made so naturally and effortlessly.
I don't like the synopsis of this new one, it seems like one giant modern clichť. Let's shove it in the viewers faces that the main cast of THIS charmed is, yes, woman... feminist woman who are going to overthrow the patriarchy. Let's target this to students (college town) because they are the easiest to manipulate. The original Charmed didn't need to do this to be charming.

A one-off special with the original 4 sisters would have been great, but given the way Rose has been dragging Alyssa in the media lately, I think the chances of them agreeing to do it now would be pretty slim.

Having said this, I think the reboot sounds awful. Labelling it a feminist show feels like such a slap in the face to the original because, for all its faults, it was nothing if not a feminist show.

Always loved this show and a reboot is just wrong. The show belongs to the original cast. They're the ones that put all the time and effort into the show. Without them they would have been no Charmed.

I actually support all of Holly's tweets going against this reboot as well since all 4 of the original cast have even announced before they would love to come back. Even Shannon and Alyssa have made amends

What I want to know is what ACTUALLY happened behind Prue's death? Some say Shannon got fired, others say she wanted out of her contract as early as season 2, WHAT HAPPENED?!:hea::hea::hea:

At this point no one probably knows, with the amount of rumours anything is possible (but the behind the scenes dislike of Milano and Doherty seems most likely). Whatever it was, the series went down the drain after Doherty left at least. Not to blame Rose McGowan, she was probably the best character after Prue died.

Season 4 was the last decent season IMO and the show definitely went downhill after. Rose McGowan was a great addition to the cast, she was not the problem. I think the problem was the show's creator leaving after the fourth season and Holly and Alyssa being producers fifth season onwards were the main problems.

Tombraider95

Yeah I think so too. I much prefer S1-4, than the later seasons.

In other news all 3 sisters and two male Co stars have been cast now. I'm on my phone so just Google it and you'll see. I'm still curious to see how they do this. A LOT of people are against this, but I'm not going to judge it until I've seen the pilot. I'm giving it a chance.

jajay119
08-03-18, 17:13
Mantock, who starred in Into the Badlands and The Tomorrow People, will play Macy, the "practical" and "brilliant geneticist" who will lead her younger sisters as they "tear down the patriarchy."


Diaz will play Mel, the middle sister who is also a lesbian and activist. Diazís acting credits include 2013ís Fruitvale Station and sheíll star in The First Purge, which comes out this year.


Dear lord could they have laid this on any thicker? And looking at the actresses theyíre all Hispanic too so that fulfils another diversity quota. Honestly this sounds like utter tripe. I wanted to give it a go but Iím sorry I just donít feel like Iíll be able to. Itís taken the original concept which was about three sisters, who themselves were strong female role models without being over the top about it, struggling with being witches and making it more of a social justice show with witches being the background theme.

Zelda master

Didn't know there was a Charmed thread.

Yeah screw the reboot, it is extremely offensive to the legacy set by the core 4. Especially when they call it more feminized and diverse. You don't need everything to have 50/50 black and white cast split down the middle. Won't watch it at all and know many others who have refused the same thing.

I donít think itís anything to do with marketing nor the casting: all Iíve described above is the descriptions of the characters which to me suggests a fundamental flaw in the conception of the show and the mentality behind rebooting it.

It's not just the marketing, this was their legacy that they built. It's shameful for them to take that and slap it's name onto something that is completly unrelated to it, much like how I feel about Reboot Tomb Raider.

If they wanted to bring this back they could have done Chris and Wyatt all grown up or featured some of their other children and given the original charmed ones a chance to say yes or now to a return or cameo or something. This reboot just spits all over the original and insults the original show in the process.

Had this been titled something else I may have given it a chance as I love shows about magic and such, but this is just wrong on so many levels.

Tombraider95
08-03-18, 21:17
Yeah I do agree, and a reunion with the original cast would have been great, but let's face it, it would be really hard to get all 4 together, but who knows maybe they'll be asked to play a part for this reboot later down the line.

I really don't want to see the two brothers fighting demons together. I seen a lot of people say they prefer that but I don't. It would be too similar to supernatural. I like charmed because it's 3 sisters.


But anyway I'm just really curious as to how they do it. If it's this reboot or no Charmed AT ALL. Then I'd rather have this. I'll make my decision after seeing the pilot episode. It could be amazing, it could be awful but I'll have to wait till then.

I understand why you’re saying that but for me I’d rather have the nostalgia and have charmed live with its original Legacy. If you change the mindset behind the show’s purpose which consequently affects the ethos within it, which I firmly believe is happening here, then it’s not Charmed anymore anyway.

If you want to make your own feminist witchy show then more power to you, I probably would have given it a shot, but do it as your own show with your own name. Don’t hijack an existing show with an existing legacy and fan base from which to spring board: it actually speaks volumes about the marketability of your product when you can’t market it as it’s own thing. To me, witches of East End will always be the modern day charmed as it had a similar premise with likeable all female characters without shoving it down your throat. Unfortunately, it was cancelled after only two seasons, despite being one of the highest rated shows of the season, so I wonder why it was cancelled, and I feel that’s why this show is riding off being ‘Charmed’.

I was over the moon with joy when I heard it was cancelled. Apparently Rob and executives disagreed on a lot of things and thus it was cancelled. He wanted Lucy to be of some importance, but the networks just didn't want to include her or Renee in that because they wanted a young and hip Xena. To me I found that very ageist of NBC and glad that the reboot didn't get past their disagreements.

The thing about reboots is the fact that I wish they would at least give the cast a chance to say yes or no to a return. What is so hard about that?

As much as I love the original Charmed I'm still going this a go. I can understand why people are annoyed with this but I don't see how a continuation of the Halliwells would be done at this current point in time. The actresses are all doing different things with their owns lives and I really don't want a next generation of their kids either. Wyatt and Chris would be too much like Supernatural.

I do wish they would have done a reunion a few years ago with all 4 sisters but only recently Rose called Alyssa fake, there's just no getting along with these actresses it seems.

This is a short clip which I think looks pretty cool.

I don't think the trailer is amazing but I think I'll enjoy watching the episode a lot more.

The original Charmed isn't going to be affected by this. It's not like they're the same characters, it's just the same premise. If anything this will give more attention to the original Charmed.

Everyone wanted to see the children, the next generation of Charmed. Holly even said that if they did something like that there was no way she could say no to it.

This was not necessary and is spitting on the iconic legacy of the original. Many people are outraged about this "reboot" They should have called this another show because there is nothing at all Charmed about it. No Core elements, hell even the characters aren't the same.

At least Reboot Lara is trying to be Lara Croft, these people couldn't care less about the legacy they are spitting on. In fact the actresses have said rude and nasty things about the original cast on Twitter before deleting their tweets.

Holly, Alyssa, Shannon, and Rose worked hard on the original and set a legacy that is popular as it is one of the most steamed things on Netflix.

Shame on CW for this.

There's plenty of core elements. 3 sisters, the book of shadows, the manor, their mother's death, the 3 powers, their white lighter, source of all evil etc...

and Reboot Lara fails...

I'd much rather they do their own characters instead of trying to redo Prue, Piper and Phoebe. Right? I mean that surely would be worse. That would be like acting as if the originals never existed.

But Melinda Warren is brought up in the pilot episode, so I'm sure this show will honour the legacy.

I'd rather they cancelled this reboot like Xena's reboot then spit all over the legacy of Charmed. Would you be ok if they did Tomb Raider, but with Billy Jenkins? No, I seriously doubt that so it is absolutely not ok that they do this to Charmed. Charmed is about the Halliwell family, the legacy of sisterhood and the Warren line of witches. The Charmed ones are Prue, Piper, Pheobe, and Paige. They will forever be Charmed.

I bet if social media was around back in 2001 there would have been A LOT of angry people over Prue dying and being replaced by another actress.

Sorry, but your assertion is wrong, people accepted Paige and loved her in Charmed. The show wouldn't went on another 5 seasons if this was the case.

You cannot create a brand new show and then just slap a title on it and call it something it is not.

The mere fact that this exists is a massive insult to Charmed.

I think it's a bit selfish of wanting it to be canceled when there are people who are looking forward to this and maybe a new audience too. Like okay you don't support this, it's not affecting the original Charmed story in anyway so it's fine. It's just it's own thing.

But anyway, there's more important things to be worrying about. I shall be looking forward to the premiere. :)

Look on twitter and youtube, many people are outraged by this reboot. It effects the original because they are trying to replace the original sisters with these characters that have nothing to do with Charmed.

I won't watch it and I know many people won't either. It will fail just like their reboot of Dynasty was a failure.

It doesn't affect the original show at all.

Yes I know I've seen a lot of comments against this but that doesn't mean there aren't people who are interested.

It effects the possibility of getting a true Charmed reunion and anything involving the original cast now. It is not a good business practice to go against the market. The market doesn't want this reboot, most people don't.

As I've said with reboot Tomb Raider they should call it something else and not try to sell itself on the fame and legacy of the original show. The crew and the cast worked their assess off for Charmed to be the massive success that it was. For a long time Charmed was the longest running show with an all female lead cast.

It's beyond reprehensible to tarnish the history behind Charmed and the importance of the shows legacy with this blasphemy they call a reboot.

Those leeches need to build their own legacy.

Charmed for me as a show was good only for the first three seasons I loved Shannen Doherty she was my favorite. But I do admit I liked the cheesy episodes with the fairytales, the mermaid, the valkiries etc :p But then all was really tired.

For this reboot I don't know that's sounds like something direct from Disney Channel it's too cover in sugarness it's bland.

Waiting for an original reunion of the cast is almost like waiting Santa Clauus on Easter. It's not gonna happen, have you see what have happened to Rose Mc Gowan recently ?

I've wanted a reunion for years. Its just not going to happen. Why couldn't all 4 of them meet up together and prove that they're willing to work together, if they were serious about it? I know they tweeted each other saying they would be up for it but nothing happened after that.

The show is the same premise so it's make sense they keep the same name. It's not like Tomb Raider where they have stripped most core elements away from the original source losing its identity. Plus even if it did have another name everyone would still be bitching that's its "copying Charmed".

But it's fine if you and most people aren't going to watch it. I just hope the hate dies down because it's very depressing for people who do want to watch it. I'll make my judgement after watching the first episode, that's only fair.

It needs to continue so that CW hears us loud and clear. What did they expect? Just force their reboot into the Charmed community and think people are going to just accept this crap? Absolutely not.

Yes and that's fine with me. Like I said, I'd rather have Charmed be a fond memory then have it tarnished with this pathetic excuse of a reboot. I'm glad the Xena reboot died, I wish the Charmed one would die as well.

Tomb Raider is different because like you said it stars Lara Croft and only her. They didn't replace her with a new character.

Like I said, if they had recast the original sisters I would totally agree with you. But it's new characters in a new family so I can't hate on that. But okay. You do you.

How is TR different? Were you not just telling me that it was pointless for me to care about Charmed reboot since there are other things to worry about in life?

That same sentiment can be said about everything, including Tomb Raider.

Also new characters and family is not at all a reboot, it is different show with the title of Charmed slapped onto it to make it sell.

No, I was saying it feels like a waste of effort to hate on this reboot to make your voices heard to the CW on a new show that doesn't affect the original.

Tomb Raider is different because it's supposed to be the same character with barely any original qualities. Stripped back. If they stripped back the original charmed characters and called them the same names I'd be annoyed too.

Holly says perfectly what many of us have been really angry and upset about.

Here’s the thing. Until you ask us to rewrite it like Brad Kern did weekly don’t even think of capitalizing on our hard work. Charmed belongs to the 4 of us, our vast amount of writers, crews and predominantly the fans. FYI you will not fool them by owning a title/stamp. So bye.

This show should have stopped after season 4. It went downhill after that with bad script writing, bad editing and bad acting. The inconsistences were massive, contradicting and unforgivable.

Up until season 4 it was a great show. But after season 5 it became all about what outfit Phoebe will be wearing next.

I hope the reboot has more to offer.

Trailer is kind of hit or miss, I like the setup and the actors look great, but some one the jokes are just... But I'll keep an open mind, could be great! The original had good ideas, but (mostly) terrible execution. Even the original four seasons had a lot of problems, but I do think that there was always a lot of potential for an amazing series, I still do. That season 3 finale was the absolute highlight for the show. Great story, amazing character moments, terrific directing and what not.
Anything after season four turned into a self indulgent masturbation fest (season 6 for Paige): Pheobe is the god advice columnist who's too busy to do anything other than bitch and moan and who's always too busy to save innocent people (and that's even ignoring everything regarding Cole). Piper become a huge arrogant perfect human being who does nothing wrong and everyone else is always at blame according to her and willingly takes terrible risks (including blowing up a whole group of innocent people though this did start in season 4) and Paige unfortunately started to morph into Piper slowly throughout season 6. And let's not forget the bizarre fanservice the series started to throw at the audience going on from the moment Holly and Milano became producers. But oh well...
I genuinely don't understand how people can defend the original series in as a whole. As much as I'm a Buffy and Angel fan, I'll be the last who'll say that those series are amazing at all points and Season 7 (Buffy) and Season 4 (Angel) and pure dumpster fires.

Remember when the Planet of the Apes reboot completely destroyed the original films and replaced them? How the Evil Dead remake undid the existence of the original films? Lost in Space obviously is the only version. And don't get me started on that Ducktales series from last year, the nerve!

I assume you're getting the heavy reliance on sarcasm.

There is a lot of when people come by and take your lifes long work and try to steal it's legacy to promote your own work. I would be just as pissed as Holly is if I had worked on this project for so many years only to have leeches try and reap the fruits of your labor.

If they called this show something else I may have given it a chance, but since they slapped Charmed onto it when it clearly is not Charmed then this reboot can kick rocks.

Yet they happily back something that many people did not want. That is not how one conducts business. Pathetic excuse for this reboot. Call this reboot show something else and stop leeching off of the legacy that was built by someone else. If Charmed wasn't that fancy of an idea then why reboot it at all? I mean surely if there was no value to be had then a reboot wouldn't even be pitched?

No one is going to convince me or others that a reboot is a good thing. It is and insult and disrespect of the original. It shows that media these days lack creativity and have no idea what they are doing anymore or just don't care.

Here’s the thing; as a fan of the old series I don’t care that they’re rebooting the series, I don’t care that they’re changing where it is set and I don’t care that the characters are to have different names. I feel like these are things that, for Charmed, could be switched up as long as the core is still there. Looking at the trailer they get their powers in a similar way which is fine and the whole ‘Melinda warren’ aspect may still yet to be addressed later on as it was in the original series.

What I do care about is, to be frank, bastardisation. With the swathes of revivals going on and three out of four of the original sisters wanting to carry on I feel that avenue should have been explored first not just ignored to capitalise on a brand. The above quote from Brad Silberling who has been brought over from Jane the virgin on this pitch who wouldn’t have even been involved with a different pitch involving the original cast and wouldn’t have any real insight into that does nothing to persuade me this was even entertained given before this a prequel by someone else was being considered.

I don’t like that the reboot, on face value is, is missing the point of the sisters’ powers being tied to their relationship: sure at the outset of the original series Prue and Phoebe were at odds but they still had a past and still loved each other through it. The new trio isn’t even a trio at the outset but a duo and a third chick randomly shows up and seems to instantly be besties with these sisters. Yes, I get it’s a nod to the Paige situation from the outset but I always thought that story was ass even in the original (how can there be three prophesised witches when there are four of you? ).

I have an issue with the social hijacking of the show. The original was a good feminist image - sisters who are there for each other holding down normal jobs, private lives and were witches on top. It wasn’t forced. This new era is all about pushing limits because it’s hip. One sister is in some weird science job, because a normal one wasn’t good enough, which you can tell has been done because ‘there aren’t enough women represented in science’ which is and has been a stronger debate for a few years. I swear One is a lesbian cause we have to have that box ticked now. They’ve changed their ethnicity to be more ‘diverse’. None of these things alone is a big deal but all together it just stinks of trying too hard to appeal to the teen SJW era which was just brought to a pinnacle by the whole ‘tearing down the patriarchy’ line they’ve been using in the promo.

What irritates me about this is that it’s not a reboot for the fans or because someone loved Charmed and wants to see it continued. Charmed has just been hijackd today promote rhisnrandom wave of neo-feminism and to me thats the worst bit; to imply, via the way this has been marketed and the tone of the trailer, that the old charmed wasn’t feminist and that just isn’t true.

Plus, on top of that I thought the acting in the trailer was poor.
