Charmed - Something Wicca This Way Comes

Our Throwback Tuesday post takes us back to the city on the bay where the power of three will set you free. With the introduction of The CW’s new lackluster Charmed reboot it seemed like a good opportunity to return to the original. Airing 20 years ago, “Something Wicca This Way Comes” introduced fans to the three Halliwell sisters: the uptight Prue (Shannen Doherty), the worrisome Piper (Holly Marie Combs), and the free-spirit Phoebe (Alyssa Milano). The show’s initial episode sees the return of Phoebe to San Fransisco to live with Piper and Prue in their grandmother’s home. Phoebe’s discovery of the Book of Shadows in the attic, a mystical tome of family history and spells, activates the sisters’ powers to fight demons and devils over the show’s 178 episode run.

Charmed - Pilot television review

After only being off the air for a little more than a decade, The CW has rebooted Charmed. I can almost hear George Carlin asking “How can you possibly be nostalgic about a concept like a little while ago?” The new series uses the same basic concept of having three sisters discover they are the world’s most powerful witches and will need to use these gifts in order to save the world and vanquish various demons of the week. There are some changes to the original formula. First, the girls’ mother is killed during the “Pilot” episode. Second, the third sister, unknown to the other two young women, is introduced helping to kick-off of the plot. And third, rather than discovering their powers for themselves, the aggressive Mel (Melonie Diaz), the shallow Maggie (Sarah Jeffery), and the bland Macy (Madeleine Mantock) get their powers and purpose mansplained to them by their whitelighter (Rupert Evans).
