Movie: Charmed Season One
Critic rating: 4
In the debut season of Charmed, one of The WB's original series, the Halliwell sisters, Prue (Shannen Doherty), Piper (Holly Marie Combs) and Pheobe (Alyssa Milano) discover they are witches with enormous and power and a destiny to save the world. There is hardly any time to learn how to use their powers, as the girls are attacked by all manner of demons and warlocks almost immediately. The sisters are aided by Prue's childhood sweetheart, Andy (Ted King), who eventually pays the price for protecting the sisters' secrets. There was an innocent quality to this show in its first season, before it got bogged down by a heavy mythology, and Doherty, who would depart after the third season, brought a gravity to the sisters that her replacement Rose McGowan never did.
