This show was interesting and has a lot of magic stuff if you're into that, which I am so it was a real good show to watch for me. You get your favorite characters like in all shows, but it's always something neat to watch because you don't know what to expect next. I could say sometimes it seemed a bit repetitive but still, it had good romance and action along with plot twists. So overall I think it's worth rating an 8.… Full Review »

The first few seasons are held back by low 90s quality, though unfortunately this is also when the writing and characterization is at its best. The show becomes glossier and showier as it continues, with really neat magic displays and great picture quality. But it also loses sight of what the show is supposed to be about: the bond of sisterhood, and it sadly spirals into centering on constant relationship whining and being inconvenienced by magic instead. The female leads become pettier and pettier as the seasons drag on, as well as overtly sexualized. Once you get into about the middle of the series and beyond, expect a lot of cleavage bouncing around and arms being manically waving in the air as shrill complaints about men and magic spew until a slew of demons get killed and the credits roll on a happy, sentimental note. It just all starts to bleed together and every mildly interesting trick, like body swaps and possessions, are used a dozen or more times. In short, it quickly becomes pointless after about season 4, and even in all of that time it never really manages to surpass "pretty good". Rarely will you get anything too deep or original. Go ahead if you're a giant genre fan but be prepared to wonder why you're even bothering after already putting in quite a bit of time. You might become trapped in feeling obligated to finish the whole thing despite no longer being very invested or having a lot of excitement in where it's going.… Full Review »

However the plot starts to go down hill when the character Prue dies and they miraculously find
another sister - Paige (Rose McGowan) who is a bad actress in comparison to (Shannen Doherty) who plays Prue. Not only does the plot get confusing with the revelation of a new sister but they always win and no main characters die. I used to love watching this film but the last time I watched it I found it embarrassing to watch due to the corny feel of the whole episode. A good programme sticks to reality having good things and bad things happen which create empathy towards the programme's audience.… Full Review »
