    The pilot represents a polished product that neatly introduces an array of characters and establishes Eastwick as a project with no small measure of potential. As for how well that's realized, as they say, the devil is in the details.
  2. Eastwick is not much more than fanciful fluff, but the chemistry between the likable trio and Gross proves bewitching.

    The actors are good, the writing's fine, and it's pleasant enough to watch. It's just that it all adds up to a series of pale imitations.

    If not for the impish, unpredictable charm of Paul Gross, who plays the mysterious Darryl Van Horne, the pretty, superficial Eastwick might have fallen completely flat.

    This is a shame and a waste of three gorgeous actresses, a wonderful actor (Gross) and an idea that--with a little more wit, smarter writing and less soap--could have yielded a winner.

    I don't exactly know what to say to [a quote from the Updike book], nor did the 1987 film adaptation starring Jack Nicholson, nor does the predictably bland and totally adequate Eastwick.

    After a few minutes in front of ABC's bewildering sorcery drama Eastwick, you may wish that Bewitched's Samantha would twitch her nose and make the whole thing disappear.

    Trite, unfortunate acting from the women, and Paul Gross-ly miscast.
