Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Christina Urban
From prime-time kingpin Aaron Spelling comes Charmed, a drama about three lovely sisters who also happen to be witches. When their grandmother dies and leaves them the family house in San Francisco, the Halliwell sisters -- Prue (Shannen Doherty), Piper (Holly Marie Combs), and Phoebe (Alyssa Milano) -- move in together and discover they are a powerful trio of witches, or "Charmed Ones." After finding the mysterious Book of Shadows in the attic and reading aloud from it, the sisters are imbued with their powers: Prue can move objects with her mind, Piper can stop time, and Phoebe can see the future. However, according to the book, the activation of these powers comes with a heavy price, because evil witches and warlocks will now be seeking to kill the sisters and steal their magic. The three decide to put rivalries aside, stick together, and protect themselves and their loved ones from evil. As one expects with Spelling, the series’ supernatural elements often service soapy plotlines, such as when Phoebe and Piper cast a spell to attract men in "Dream Sorcerer." Notable episodes include: "Dead Man Dating," in which Piper falls for the ghost of a recently murdered man; "The Wedding from Hell," wherein the sisters face off against a demon goddess; and “The Witch Is Back,” an outing that finds the sisters resurrecting a powerful ancestor to help fight a warlock. Brian Krause, who will eventually become a Charmed regular as otherworldly protector Leo, first appears in "Thank You for Not Morphing." Guest stars this season include David Carradine as an evil warlock, Dark Angel star Michael Weatherly as a young man fighting his dark side, and daytime TV favorite Finola Hughes as Patty, the sisters' mom.

Charmed is an AWESOME show and I am sooooo thrilled that it is finally coming out on DVD!!! It was annoying because all these other shows, which haven't even been on as long as Charmed, were coming out on DVD, but Charmed wasn't out yet. But now it is! So yay!

Charmed! What else can I say? It's an empowering, thrilling and great show. It's right up their with Gilmore Girls and The O.C. This show is fixed around the lives of Piper, Phoebe and Paige Halliwell -- The Charmed Ones. It's filled with magic, love, death, and family stuff.

It's about time they decided to put out the first season of Charmed. I really didn't get into watching the show untill late in the 4th season. I have always wanted to see where it all started.

Its about time! i have been waiting for this series to come out on DVD for the longest. This show is great, its full of excitement, suspense, comedy, and drama. Its a great package and 'A Must' for any fan of series from the WB.

What has taken these guys so long?! I am a huge fan and could hardly wait to see it come out on DVD. Since I live in Brazil, I do not know how long it will take me to get the box, but I will find a way...

All I can say is 'finally'! I have been waiting to see if it was coming to DVD. If you have a strong intrest in the supernatual, then this is the show for you. It is a like a mix from Chalies Angels and Witches of Eastwick or somthing. Personally, I cant think of anything more cooler than three beautiful women kicking demon butt. You definatly want this collection for your DVD library.

I'm so happy about this! I was dieing for this DVD to come out, and now it is! I have been watching Charmed since season 3 and i've seen the re-runs on TNT, so I can say I know everything about Charmed! The WB is so smart to have a show like this! I love Charmed!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!!! I am so happy that they have finally released this to dvd. This show is so awesome and got me first interested in Wicca. Blessed be to all who made this happen.

I have watched Charmed from the begining. Now with getting the DVD I can start all over again. Charmed even though it dazzles us with fantasy, has alot of moral lessons that deal with issues on a day to day basis. The girls teach the importance of having a strong bond to family and what it means to sacrifice for the sake of others. The show is highly moral with a twist of fun to make it even more interesting. This show is for anyone and everyone regardless of faith and belief, if the argument of wicca or witches ever came into the picture of what this tv show may be about. Its very well rounded if you can look past the gloss.

Charmed is a very cool show i watch it every night at 6:00 and the new episodes on TNT Tuseday At 10:00 they capture my inner person...
Guest More than 1 year ago
I have loved charmed since season 1. I love TNT for showing it from the first season. Even more I love the WB for keeping the show going!! (Even though I'm dissapointed in the loss of Angel!)

While I really enjoy 'Charmed', I didn't start doing so until Rose McGowan came on the show. I didn't mind a couple of the others that showed up temporarily, but Shannon Dougherty is always too busy posing, checking out her relfection and giving EVERYONE seductive glances! It won't replace good acting! I will wait until the next seasons come out!
Guest More than 1 year ago
The first season is sso cool! I'm not really fond of Shannen Doherty. I like Rose McGowan better, but Shannen'll do for me for now... Do you know season two DVD is due to come out May 2005???

i LOVE charmed. i think that all the episodes are great, with or without shannon. there's always something new going on. this show is awesome.

The First season is good. The Show gets better after Prue's death and Rose joins the cast. Her character is not so self-involved and controlling. The other season will be amazing, but u must get this one. No DVD collection will be complete without it.

After petitioning for years to see this delightful show to be made available to everyone on DVD/VHS, I am thrilled. It is amazing to watch the transformation from the first season to its current incarnation. This show has done great things for those of us who live a Pagan life. It has dispelled the wart ridden, green faced witch and put a vital, positive new generation of beautiful strong women in its place.

I've been a fan of Charmed since the beginning and I was ecstatic to hear that the first season was coming to DVD. Its great to relive this season over and to compare it to how the showed evolved into its present state. My only complaint about the dvd set was that there were no extras, otherwise I would have given it 5 stars.

being a practicer of the craft I cound't wait to see what they were going to do to witches next BUT I liked this It was great
