Weekend Bingewatch: I Watched The OG 'Charmed' And Here's What You Need To Know

"The Power of Three will set us free."

Weekend Bingewatch: I Watched The OG 'Charmed' And Here's What You Need To Know
The CW

An oldie, but a goodie. "Charmed" premiered way back in October of 1998 and ended in May of 2006.

This show has become one of my favorite shows, and it's definitely a different one if you're looking for a new show to binge this weekend.

While you won't get it done before your Monday meeting because there are eight seasons, you will definitely become interested in the characters and what they do on a day to day basis.

Like "Friends," "Charmed" definitely aligns with the '90s to early '00s fashion, which we STAN.

Also in true '90s TV fashion, there are a lot of holes in the storyline and the graphics are kind of, well, laughable at times. But that is all OK and we accept it and love the show regardless.

What's "Charmed" about?

The show focuses on three sisters, Phoebe, Prue, and Piper who have connected again after the death of their grandmother who have gained magic powers and become powerful witches.

I know, I know, it already sounds cheesy and really odd, but HEAR ME OUT.

The sisters are known as The Charmed Ones and work to fight off evil beings that threaten the safety of humanity in San Francisco, CA.

Throughout the show, you see the progression of their relationships as sisters and their strength as witches. And of course, there are boy problems, drama, and everyday TV plots as well.

After a few seasons, one of the sisters loses her life in one of their fights against evil and it breaks the bond of the "Power of Three" taking away their "Charmed Ones" status. Later on, they discover that their mother had another daughter and gave her up for adoption.

They meet their new sister, Paige, by fate and reignite the "Charmed Ones" and continue to fight evil together.

Phoebe has the power of premonition, levitation, and empathy, Piper has the power to freeze things and blow things up, Prue has the power of telekinesis and astral projection, and Paige has the power to orb, which is essentially teleporting to wherever she wants and teleporting anything to wherever she wants.

I always wanted to watch this show when I was younger but was never allowed so it's fun to watch it now and reminisce on the times when my parents controlled my viewing habits. Ah, the good old days.

I give "Charmed" a 9.5 out of 10 for your weekend bingewatch.
