3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Dr. Deneka Macdonald on August 2, 2008
Format: Paperback
A powerful little book that would prove useful for any graduate student studying fantastic texts in contemporary culture, not just television studies. I enjoyed this book a great deal, despite the fact that I am not a particular fan of the series. The division of chapters and the academic rigor with which the series is approached from various perspectives is purposeful and reflects a confidence and comfort with contemporary theoretical discourses and explorations into how we consume culture, both as viewers and students of literature. Whilst I found the book clever and interesting overall, I was most struck by the section on Feminist Power: Karin Beeler puts forth an intriguing argument for the distinctions between second and third wave feminism in the series, whilst Susan Wolfe gives an excellent (and beautifully written) account of contemporary `girl power' from her own perspective as a second wave feminist. The book weaves a series of intertextual arguments through integrated themes and observations that reflect significant movements in popular culture and television studies today.

2 of 6 people found the following review helpful By You Can Call Me "Books" on June 2, 2008
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I LOVED Charmed. I am a former English major. I love books especially ones about the inner workings and symbolism of a subject. That said. I bought the book months ago and still haven't finished. It's not too hard, It's ...boring. It's so intensely serious that it saps all the joy out of one of the few books about the meanings of Charmed. A four page dissertation on the "wordiness" of the spells on Charmed was just too darn WORDY.

Best Book that is witty, pop culture savvy, intelligent, and Charming-
"Totally Charmed" edited by Jennifer Crusie
BUT it has the ugliest/cheesiest cover, a bit insulting because it looks like a tabloid, Charmed wasn't tabloid TV to me and the book is actually well written, deserved mature cover
