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).

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!

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 ›
