Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Sexy, silly, sardonic, somber: the fifth season of Charmed finds the Charmed Ones--sisters Phoebe (Alyssa Milano), Piper (Holly Marie Combs), and Paige (Rose McGowan)--on an emotional roller coaster. Yet they're also in a fairly comfortable groove with one another. McGowan, who joined the cast in year 4 (see Charmed: The Complete Fourth Season) as a replacement for Shannen Doherty, is now a perfect fit, turning Paige into a self-deprecating, uber-witch whose clipped dialogue meshes beautifully with Milano's neurotic phrasing and Combs' no-nonsense bark.

Season 5 ties up a lot of loose ends, heralds some major shifts in the show's running narrative, and ushers in a couple of new characters. One of the latter is Piper's baby by husband Leo (Brian Krause), the angelic Whitelighter whose role as an emissary of the heavenly Elders changes dramatically in the two-part finale, "Oh, My Goddess!" Before that happens, however, Phoebe must contend with the reappearance of her husband, the demon Cole (Julian McMahon), who is determined to win her back by proving his evil nature is under control. As usual, all the sisters must use the Power of Three to protect a number of vulnerable mortals, and even some immortals. Among these are a mermaid whose immortality is sought by a greedy demon, several wood nymphs frolicking in the streets of San Francisco, and married men targeted by a hot Siren with a killer kiss. Season highlights include "Happily Ever After," in which characters from multiple fairy tales come to life; "Lucky Charmed," a fun story introducing a demon-vanquishing Leprechaun; and "Sense and Sense Ability," a clever drama in which Phoebe goes deaf, Piper becomes blind, and Paige turns mute as the result of a wicked witch's spell. The aforementioned finale sees all three sisters officially acknowledged as the goddesses they truly are. But it also introduces a new, major character, Chris (Drew Fuller), who seems benevolent but may very well be a wolf in sheep's clothing. We shall see. --Tom Keogh

Product Description

Piper (Combs) and Phoebe (Milano), now with younger half-sister Paige (McGowan) up to speed with her powers, more or less, and "The Power of Three" all living under one roof at the Halliwell manor, are trying to get their respective personal lives in order. All the while, continuing to battle the worst evils that come their way. Oldest sister Piper and her husband Leo (Krause), the siblings' whitelighter guardian angel, are thrilled at the prospect of the impending birth of their child. Yet, dealing with a normal pregnancy is tough enough, but factoring in their unborn baby's use of her magical powers gives Piper cause for concern. Although adjusting to complexities of being pregnant and fighting evil, Piper has the added responsibility of looking out for her younger sisters and still running the Halliwell's successful nightclub P3. It's become a lot to handle coupled with possessing the trio's strongest power – exploding an object or demon at will in addition to the power of freezing, but Piper has proved she's more than capable of carrying the burden. While middle sister Phoebe's career is on the rise, the same can't be said of her romantic life. Recently employed as a popular gossip columnist at a local newspaper, she's gained notoriety for her work, but she's trying to finalize her divorce from Cole (McMahon), the part demon/part human who became "The Source" (the greatest of all evil) and was vanquished, only to cling to life because of his love for Phoebe. Finally over her love for Cole, she's ready to get on with her life without him, unfortunately, after resurrecting himself, he's determined to prove his love for her by trying to do good. Phoebe's martial arts skills, her ability to levitate, the power of premonitions and her skill at making potions have helped vanquish many a demon. Youngest sister Paige has gone through quite a change in the past year with learning of her true heritage, then becoming adept at utilizing her powers of orbing herself and objects at will and getting used to having a family again. Raised by adoptive parents who died while she was still in high school, Paige was used to being a loner, but now she's proved to her sisters that she's up to the task of being one-third of the Power of Three. When it comes to good old fashioned police help, Inspector Darryl Morris (Dorian Gregory) is always there when the sisters need some aide or advice. As "The Charmed Ones," the three most powerful good witches to ever exist, the Halliwell sisters defeated "The Source" but now face the existence of powerful evils still prevalent and looking to defeat them. As Piper, Phoebe and Paige continue to wage war against all evil, they seek to strengthen their sisterly bond as they get closer to fulfilling their destiny.

5.0 out of 5 stars Season 5 Brings Many New Changes To Charmed... March 2, 2006
By Tyler
Format:DVD
Season 5 is a very interesting season to review. Many people have mixed feelings about it. Some say its the best and some say it is the downfall of Charmed. I somewhat agree with both sides, as my opinion is the first half is great up unitl the point where they vanquish Cole and shift into baby mode. Although some of the baby episodes are good, the show definately changed after the birth of Wyatt. This season was pretty light hearted with many baby-centric episodes but this season does have its dark points. Highlights include: A Witch's Tail, Sam I Am, Centennial Charmed, The Day The Magic Died, and Oh My Goddess.

Episodes:

1. A Witch's Tail Part 1 - The sisters help Mylie (Jamie Pressly), a mermaid, with a deal she made with the sea-hag.

2. A Witch's Tail Part 2 - Phoebe becomes a mermaid and Paige and Piper must convince her to return home.

3. Happily Ever After - A witch uses the power of fairy tales to create problems for the charmed ones.

4. Siren Song - A siren is in town preying on married men.

5. Witches In Tights - the sisters are transformed into superheros in order to take out a demon.

6. The Eyes Have It - The Charmed Ones encounter a gypsy curse and aid their friend Eva to show her the way of magic.

7. Sympathy For The Demon - Barbas is back to wreck some havok on the charmed ones.

8. A Witch In Time - Phoebe must constantly save her boyfriend from dying and if she doesn't stop, she will die.

9. Sam I Am - Paige meets her father, Sam, for the first time.

10. Y Tu Mummy Tambien - Pheobe gets mummified and her sisters must rescue her.

11. The Importance Of Being Phoebe - Cole kidnaps Phoebe and sends a shapeshifter to impersonate her.

5.0 out of 5 stars A new season, a new cast make over... March 12, 2006
By Amanda
Format:DVD
Well, we had a character change for series 4, and we get another for the 100th episode* this season. Yep we bid a fond farewell to Cole : ( But there will be a tiny new cast member - this season sees the birth of Piper and Leo's baby.

Season 5 stills retains it's sense of realism with the added drama and wit that made CHARMED a huge success, but for me this series lost that special something that made it a must watch programme, though it picks it up as it nears the end.

A Witch's Tail (1)

A Witch's Tail (2)

Phoebe is turned into a mermaid, giving her a cold heart and she runs away from her problems. Paige struggles balancing her charmed one life with her work life. Pregnant Piper begins to suffer from panic attacks.

Happily Ever After

The sisters are transported into classic fairy stories - Piper Little Red Riding Hood, Phoebe into Cinderella, and Paige into Snow White.

Siren Song

A Siren lures Phoebe and Cole, leaving Piper and Paige to save them. Piper's unborn baby swaps her powers with Leo's.

Witches In Tights

A demon is turned into a comic book character so he can steal the elder's powers, leaving the sisters no choice but to don masks and catsuits to stop him.

The Eyes Have It

Phoebe discovers a demon which steals the eyes of gypsies. Piper wants to see a regular doctor, but Leo is concerned about being exposed.

Sympathy For The Demon

Here we see the return of Barbas (the demon of fear) who once again plunges the sisters into their darkest fears.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exploring New Territory March 21, 2006
Format:DVD
Season 5 of Charmed brought about a new direction for the series. In season 4 the show took a very dark path and brought a more serialized element to the series. Season 5 brought Charmed into the light and showed other elements that the show is able to accomplish. During the first four seasons the show tended to mainly explore the human world and the underworld. In season 5 we saw other elements in the magical community and innocents that the Charmed ones needed to save that weren't always human, but mermaid and nymphs. While the show had it's much lighter moments this season it also had it's dark points as well with the character of Cole going crazy from the powers he asorbed in the finale of season 4 and the inevitable vanquish of his character in the 100th episode. Then we had great family moments with the birth of Piper's son in "The Day the Magic Died" and how the character of Piper evolved into becoming a great mom and protector. Then once again the drama picked up in the finale with the tearing apart of Charmed's favorite couple Piper and Leo and the great cliffhanger that left us wondering if Leo would ever be back.

Season 5 of Charmed is another great season and worth adding to the Charmed collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars As Charming As Ever... March 10, 2006
Format:DVD
I am a die-hard Charmed fan. I love its wonderful mix of fantasy, spirituality, family drama, and even the comic moments it provides. This show, all 8 seasons, is a fine example of Wiccan fantasy and entertainment (with a smidge of truth behind everything, much like the Harry Potter films and books) that everyone can understand and conveys spiritual truths that anyone can appreciate regardless of religious affiliation. In my opinion, the Heart of Wicca is well-represented in this show's universe.

I may be in the minority here...but I find Season 5 one of the best. I personally think the show improved with the introduction of Paige in Season 4...and feel like her seasons took the show to a whole new level. Her struggles are profound, and fascinating to watch: being a Witch/Whitelighter, rising above the spectre of Prue in the eyes of her newfound sisters, and learning to balance being both a magical being and living in the mortal world as a Social Worker. I REALLY love her character.

But, with Season 5 particularly...I loved the introduction of more fantasy-inspired elements, the nymphs, mermaids, leprechauns and such...they gave the season a much needed lift...especially considering how dark Season 4 was...particularly the last half, with Phoebe's Dark Wedding to Cole/The Source of All Evil and her demon pregnancy...effective, but dark.

Loved the episodes regarding Piper and Leo having a child...very touching. I can't say enough about this season (or any of the seasons for that matter, they are all unique and special in their own way). I highly recommend this to any fan of Charmed, or just great fantasy-entertainment.

Agreed. I wish they had gone with that too, especially to give the box sets more variety. They already did blue for season 3.

does prue appear in this season
Yes we get to "see" her again in the show entitled "Cat House". She appears as a dog from the time Paige appears Prue as Prue is gone for good unless she comes back for the series finale in season eight, Yup this year.
