Witches Of East End is My Guilty Pleasure
on July 17, 2014
Witches Of East End happens to be one of my favorite new shows around. Season 1 was great. I originally wanted to watch the show because of Virginia Madsen. I've been a big fan of hers for a while, shes been a big horror icon in my eyes. Her addition to the show put it together as a whole. I hope she will soon return again in some shape or form. I also wanted to watch for the amazing Mädchen Amick. I've loved her since Twin Peaks! Amick's character Wendy brings a comical side to the show. Shes sort of witty, yet sarcastic. Its a great mix and Amick does a great job portraying the character Wendy. 10 Episodes was way to short for season 1. I'm glad season 2 was extended with 13 episodes.
On a side note, Season 2 is starting off amazing. I hope the show continues to run for a long time. Comparing the show to Charmed is a mistake many people seem to be making. I'm a Charmed fan myself but with this show you will not hear, constantly, these witches complaining about wanting a normal life. Freya and Ingrid actually have been living a normal life about until now. The show is a must for me! Recently The Client List, starring Jennifer Love Hewitt, was cancelled on lifetime. THIS show is why I no longer care about The Client List. It's a replacement for me!
I hope to see a lot more guest stars and I actually hope some cast regulars. A lot of Buffy stars have been on the show, and even more are heading into the second season. I hope Sarah Michelle Gellar will make an appearance on the show, I feel like it would be awesome seeing former vampire slayer Buffy playing a witch of some sort? I also hope to see some Charmed cast members, would it be to much to ask if the Halliwell sisters joined the Beauchamp's in some serious daemon killing.
Anyway, I'll conclude my rant. Check it out if you want! You won't regret it!
