A killer is on the loose in town, killing women who are into the occult, and only detective Trudeau (Ted King) figures the killer must be after witches.

In another part of town, Pru (Shannen Doherty) is upset because her sister Piper (Holly Mary Combs) has invited her other sister Phoebe (Alyssa Milano) to move in with them in their deceased grandma's house, because she and Phoebe haven't gotten along for just some time.

What do these two narrative strands have in common?

Nothing at first, until the three sisters find out they are actually witches, Pru can move objects by the power of thought, Piper can freeze time, and Phoebe is able to look into the future. Now just finding out you have powers like these is stressing enough, but if a killer chasing witches is around, it's even more so ... and if the killer turns out to be Piper's boyfriend Jeremy (Eric Scott Woods), an evil warlock after the powers of witches ... now that's a bitch!

Fortunately, the three girls are able to combine their powers just in time to annihilate the warlock once and for all.


Often ridiculed as a cash-in on the supernatural fad kicked off by Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Charmed is indeed riddled with shortcomings, from its silly plot-premise to its lack of ideas when representing the supernatural to its rather formulaic plot. Plus, this specific first episode also suffers from a terribly underwhelming finale. All that said though, Charmed is still fun, maybe in a guilty pleasures sort-of-way, but then again, fun is fun - basically because the three girls in the leads are rather likeable, because the show as a whole always puts an ironic spin on the stories it tells, and because it has a very light-footed approach to it not often found in genre movies or TV shows. This all doesn't make Charmed your perfect entertainment though, just something you might enjoy nevertheless.
