Description

"Stronger together." That's what Marisol (guest star Valerie Cruz) tells her daughters, firebrand social justice warrior Melanie "Mel" Vera (Melonie Diaz), and her sister, fun-loving Maggie (Sarah Jeffery), about their family. Mel is a graduate student in the women's studies department her mother heads at Hilltowne University; Maggie is a freshman considering sorority rush (to Mel's amused dismay) and going "on" again with her on-again/off-again boyfriend, Brian (guest star Charlie Gillespie). But then, a shocking tragedy shatters their world and threatens their sibling bond: Marisol dies in a horrifying accident. Or was it? Three months later, we find Mel unable to accept the official explanation of their mother's death, while Maggie accuses her of being morbidly obsessed. And then, another huge shock shows up at their front door: they have an older sister – brilliant geneticist Macy (Madeleine Mantock), whom their mother kept a secret all these years! Macy is new in town and doesn't know a soul (except for Galvin (Ser'Darius Blain), the cute fellow scientist who's been showing her around). Macy is eager to connect with Mel and Maggie, but Mel can't handle another shock, and shuts her out. With the emotions of all three sisters running high, each of the girls suddenly exhibit impossible new abilities: Mel can freeze time, Maggie starts hearing others' thoughts and Macy has telekinetic powers. But don't worry, there's a perfectly reasonable explanation...or so says Harry Greenwood (Rupert Evans) – who as far as they know is the officious new chair of the women's studies department - when he gathers the three sisters together to reveal they're actually powerful witches, as was their mother. And he's not really a professor, he's their "Whitelighter," a witch's advisor and guide! Not only that, but Mel was right: their mother's death was no accident – she was murdered by unknown dark forces. It's a lot to take in, but ultimately the sisters accept their new destiny as The Charmed Ones...and their new duty to protect humankind from the demons that walk among us...one of whom killed their mother. With the Power of Three, they are stronger together...even if they have no idea what they're really up against.

  • Please stop, I rather watch the classics on repeat

    In this case, the classics is still better. Trying to give this a try but I couldn’t. Simply, because it didn’t captivate me.
  • How NOT to Do a Reboot

    1
    By Charmed & Selfish
    Hello, everyone, if you're looking for a reboot that honors its original carnation this is not the show for you. However, if you want to see it done well--while ironically still being on the CW--look to Roswell where they honored the original in the creation of a reboot. I have watched all the way up Season 3 because I was really hoping the show would become less selfish. The theme of Charmed was always to help others. Or, 'You can't used your magic for personal gain' as they said in the original show. Yet, every episode revolves around the sisters and their problems. How this differs from the original is that while you followed the sisters you also watched them help an innocent every week, which I feel like is a better message. However, in all fairness, I don't believe the writers really decided what to do with this show until halfway through the season. The entire first season is just an abridged version of Classic Charmed (Seasons 1-8) told on fast-forward. The biggest example is the season finale where they dive into the Hollow--belive me my mouth dropped when that was introduced so quickly--and Macy uses it to alter reality to try to be part of the family sooner (her story arc basically being Paige's in season 4, except she's part demon instead of white lighter). This screams selfish and personal gain to me. However, the beginning of the season is a lot worse than the end. I've just come to expect being preached at by The CW, which means instead of allowing the characters to organically discuss a real world topic they just have characters overly angry at topics without justification. For instance, the writers address something like college rape culture, but instead of allowing it to be something explored in the episode, the character Mel (or Mal) just shouts at her sister Maggie that the college guy she's kissing is just a rapist-when all we've seen is Maggie and him kissing consensually. The show then went on to have Mal consistently just shout her beliefs at people instead of giving her the opportunity to sit down and discuss the topics she's obviously so passionate about. Don't get me wrong. Those topics need to be discussed, even if it's uncomfortable, but the writer's delivery was so aggressive it became very off putting. A counter example of when they did well occurred halfway through the season in Episode 15. The Medusa Episode. In order to highlight the way men gaslight their victims, the sisters go after Medusa, who is villianized by Greek Mythology because she turns people to stone, even though she was changed into a gorgan because she was raped by Poseidon. It's because of that reason that I say the show started to be better after Episode 15 because I felt the writers were actually taking the time to figure out the full message behind every episode. But, that being said, the sisters only address their own issues. They manipulate time to their own benefit. And they choose each other over others. And, the biggest message and charm to the orignal Charmed was its message of Selflessness.

    So I was unsure about watching the remake, I really liked the original. Just recently there was nothing on tv so I put on Netflix & decided to give it a try & im glad I did. I have read some of the other reviews & 1 of the biggest complaints is that it strays to far from the original & it does, but to me it’s good, it makes it, it’s own show & not so much of a remake. The only complaint I have, is I didn’t start watching sooner lol I hope whoever watches enjoys the show as much as I do ♥️
  • Loved It😉

    I’ve saw the first Charmed and I loved it then. This reboot was pretty good can’t wait until season 2. There is no comparison between the two The original charmed was for that generation and this Charmed is for this new generation. It’s worth watching... And don’t let anyone tell you not to watch it because they are pre-judging the show. they’re trying to compare the show to the old one and the characters to the old one wrong decision just watch it and enjoy it

    I am a long time Charmed fan so I was skeptical at first. But after a few episodes I was hooked. In my opinion this is better than the original. It fallows similar plot points while also thinking creatively so the show isn’t a play by play of the original. This show is a creative take on the Power of Three, White-lighters, The Elders, and magic itself.
  • So Disappointing

    I was really hoping this would be a good remake but it definitely is not. The characters and sadly to say the actresses playing the charmed ones ended up being more annoying than entertaining. Very disappointing overall. If you want a good witch show watch The Witches of Eastwick, that was a GREAT show with actual talented actors.

    Wow… some INCELs really seem to be threatened by this show and its message. Oh my! Furthermore, there are the core fans of the original – who for legit or lesser reasons – seem to be on the fence. That I understand… yes, it would have been better if the original cast was involved somehow, the effects seem to be on par with the budget unfortunately, and the message could be adressed through action more than through social commentary dialogues, agreed. But that is forgetting that the original show came with its own problems as well. On the other hand, it is an unapologetic feminist show, with lots of representation, the actors have great chemistry (there is, of course, room for growth), while you feel the love of detail. So, I hope that in season 2 they will be able to find their balance – more story/character driven with less effects (hence with better effects); but, never-the-less, it is an important show to have since it is effective as a reboot in a time where we crave the nostalgia of days gone by with the sass of a feminist point a view and current political commentary.
