Charmed: The Complete First Season recaptures a period when television's WB network was particularly keen on series about the supernatural and specially powered characters. The original home of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and future launch pad for Angel and Smallville, the WB debuted Charmed in 1998 with many of the same intriguing ironies that made those other shows click. Specifically, the greater a character's powers, the more vulnerable he or she becomes; the more superhuman, the more painfully obvious one's lonely, fragile humanity. The Halliwells, a trio of witch heroines and siblings at the center of Charmed, is a case in point. Phoebe (Alyssa Milano) returns to her San Francisco family home after losing her job, and moves in with her older sisters Prue (Shannen Doherty) and Piper (Holly Marie Combs). On her first night back, Phoebe finds the Book of Shadows in the attic and recites a spell giving all three women unique powers they were always meant to have: Prue suddenly has the gift of telekinesis, Piper can make time stand still, and Phoebe can see into the future. All well and good, but along with those extraordinary abilities is a new awareness of dark forces in the world from which mortals need protection. In some cases, those forces have been plotting a long time to steal the Halliwell's magical legacy once they awakened to it--and now they will never let up.

Evil warlocks, demons, ancient curses, Grimlocks, and Wendigos (the last two are best left explained by their respective episodes), however, are only half the battle on this sexy dramedy, in which more ordinary matters of emotional and real-world survival also preoccupy the Halliwells. An important ally, Inspector Andy Trudeau (Ted King), is Prue's ex-lover, a delicate detail that mixes pain with duty as the couple rekindles their troubled relationship while solving otherworldly crimes. In "Dead Man Dating," Piper falls for the ghost of a murdered man who needs help, and later competes with Phoebe for the attention of a handyman, Leo (Brian Krause). Jobs and money are always an issue, too. At one time or another, Phoebe works as a psychic, Piper as a caterer, and Prue finds a job at an auction house. As with Buffy, the engine of Charmed is the seamless, sometimes-comic, sometimes-tender way in which all these dynamics in the magic and non-magic worlds blend together, presenting young adult challenges that are both unique and somehow terribly familiar. It is particularly fun to watch this series grow, deepen, and experiment during its first year. The season's true highlight is probably "That 70s Episode," in which the Halliwells go back in time to meet their younger selves. --Tom Keogh

Product Description

In Charmed, the three Halliwell sisters have accepted their destiny of protecting the innocent and vanquishing evil doers, even though that is generally not on the agenda of every twenty-something on the fast track to discovering what life's all about. Prue (Doherty), the oldest, is driven to succeed and dislikes the free-spirited antics of the youngest sister Phoebe (Milano). Piper (Combs), the earthy middle sister, mediates between her siblings. Prue has the power to move objects, Piper to freeze time and Phoebe to see the future. The sisters must band together to protect themselves, and the world, from the dark, demonic forces that seek to destroy them

5.0 out of 5 stars Magical First Season of "Charmed Ones" a Winner! May 5, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
As a loyal fan of the Sisters Halliwell, the long-overdue release of the boxed set "Charmed - The Complete First Season" is a great pleasure!

Beginning with the discovery of their magical abilities, the first season wisely avoided "Buffy" comparisons by focusing, instead, on the efforts of the three sisters to combine "The Power of Three" with some semblance of a 'normal' life. Thus, eldest sister, Prue (the tempermental and ultimately 'short-lived' sibling, Shannen Doherty) juggles appraising antiquites, a sporadic affair with Homicide detective Andy Trudeau (T.W. King), and serving as a mentor to her younger sisters, while shy, introverted Piper (Holly Marie Combs) combines her talents as a chef with managing the trendy bistro, "Quake", and experiences a growing attraction to a handyman with a 'secret', Leo (Brian Krause). Only the youngest sister, free-spirited Phoebe (Alyssa Milano) shuns a regular job, devoting herself to exploring the sisters' mystical guidebook, the "Book of Shadows", and learning of their mystical heritage.

For those more familiar with the flashier, occasionally silly storylines of later seasons, the first 22 episodes may come as quite a surprise; each episode is carefully crafted, offers some excellent acting, and is often quite compelling. While Piper's droll timing and sarcastic one-liners (a major reason for the series' continuing success) are seldom evident in the first season, the incredible chemistry between her and Leo is ever-present, and far more interesting than the Prue/Andy romance, a fact not lost on the writers (Andy would be gone by season's end, while the door was wisely 'left open' to allow Leo an increasingly important role in the Halliwell's lives).

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally the Charmed Ones November 10, 2004
Format:DVD
After many years of waiting we finally have something to show for it, Charmed on DVD!! The first season of this show was enough to make you either love it or hate it. Now the power of three can set us free. I have compiled an episode run down with plot lines so for those who have never seen this great show you can decide if you want to invest in it. If you are a Buffy and/or Angel fan and still have not really watched Charmed might I suggest you make the purchase. You won't be sorry!

Three sisters living in San Francisco discover that they are witches. Prue learns that
she possesses telekinetic powers, Phoebe learns that she has the power to see into the
future and Piper learns that she is able to stop time.

Trudeau and Morris conduct a manhunt for a suspect who is abducting women. They are
unaware that he is really an evil being who feeds off women's beauty - and has just set
his sights on one of the Halliwell sisters. Meanwhile, Phoebe experiments with her power
regardless of her sisters' disapproval.

03. Thank You For Not Morphing 1998-10-21
Long-lost dad visits the Halliwell sisters and Prue is skeptical about his intentions.

and the Book of Shadows.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Power of Three Finally Comes to DVD November 14, 2004
By M. Hart
Format:DVD
Inspired by the actual Earth-centered religion of Wicca, many television viewers in 1998 became enchanted with the fictional story of three extraordinary sisters who, after their grandmother's death, discover that they are witches and that each has a unique magical power. The oldest, Prudence "Prue" Halliwell (Shannen Doherty), discovers that she has a magical "punch" with which she can physically force anyone (or anything) to be thrown away from her. The middle sister, Piper Halliwell (Holly Marie Combs), discovers that she can magically freeze anyone or anything. The youngest sister, Phoebe Halliwell (Alyssa Milano), discovers that she has a magical gift of foresight that allows her to see potentially disastrous future events for individuals if she touches an object that has been handled by them. As it turns out, the sisters' mother Patty Halliwell (regular guest Finola Hughes) and their grandmother Penny 'Grams' Halliwell (regular guest Jennifer Rhodes) were also witches and hidden within their San Francisco house attic is their famed Book of Shadows (book of spells and information about various paranormal beings, such as demons and white lighters). The sisters also discover that they are unique among witches in that they possess the very powerful ability to invoke the "power of three", which is a very powerful incantation that can be used to destroy demons and other evil beings. In fact, that is their mission: to protect the world from the evil attacks of various demons, warlocks and other evil beings. Of course, these newly discovered abilities and frequent attacks from demons wreak havoc for the sisters' lives, especially their careers and attempts at dating. Read more ›

Charmed
I suppose so. I've been watching it since I was nine. There are about two episodes out of the two seasons which involve some ranchy seasons for the whole season. It is a good series though, and I say yes.

No. It is available, however, in one of the complete box sets.
