Review this tv show
Oct 19, 2018I am a huge fan of the original. I love how the show always represented strong women. I was excited to watch the new version of the Charmed ones. However the reboot is pushing a political agenda that is not needed. I just want to enjoy a show without biases. I hope future episodes are not so political.
Despite the timeliness of this dialogue, Charmed plays like a throwback to the schlocky original, which aired in the 1990s and to which it is surprisingly faithful in spirit. ... Charmed is more supernatural procedural than serial drama.
The deluge of empowerment is relentless, repetitive, and boring. The supernatural elements of the plot seem borrowed from old episodes of Supernatural and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The special effects are super-cheesy, not much better than an old episode of Bewitched.
The first episode of the new “Charmed” is clunkier than Rose McGowan’s late-‘90s shoe game. That said, a pilot’s job is to clearly let viewers know what the series is going to be about.
