Ahh, this was my obsession growing up... :laugh:

Loved S1-6. Chris saved S6. Didn't like S7 and especially S8. Kaley is a great actress, but Billie was horrible. And overexposed.
And the show became much "lighter" over the years. I liked it better when it was darker and more drama (Phoebe burning, loved one dying..etc) ;)

Personally, I think seasons 1-4 were the best. The show took a hit loosing Shannon Doherty in the fourth season, but at least they had strong storylines and introduced Paige well. It was also an extremely dark season, which I much preferred over the fifth season format. I still liked the show after 1-4, but it greatly diminished in quality. Season eight was horrendous though. Worst season by far, and the whole Billie/Christie storyline was stupid. Just show's that the networks shouldn't interfere much. LOL. Who was your favorite character?

I only included S5 because there were some awesome episodes that season. But yeah, overall... it wasn't great. The nymphs, and leprechauns was ridiculous. Definitely better when it was darker and scarier.
Billie and Christie were terrible. I can't believe THEY were the girls' "Final EPIC battle" :rolleyes: So disappointing.
My favorite character was Piper. Most of the time anyways. Who was yours?

Agreed. I enjoyed the series as a whole, but those first four seasons are the best.

My one big fault with Charmed was the fact that we never actually saw Prue die on camera. They really should have had alternate endings taped just in case Doherty did decide to leave the series for good. "All Hell Breaks Lose" is one of my favorite episodes, but I HATED the way the season four opener immediately skipped past everything with two simple lines covering it all.

I actually think the show was at its best from seasons 3-6. I found 1 and 2 pretty dry, especially when all they did was sit around that ugly restaurant.

I'll always love you. Always

I love Charmed! Have all 8 seasons on dvd, and my favorite seasons are 1-4. I thought the way Paige was introduced was excellent. I like season 5, but like another poster said- Chris saved season 6 for me too. Liked season 7 & absolutely detest season 8. Only reason I have it is because of the series finale.

I love episodes where Grams, their mother & father come for a visit.

How could I have possibly missed this thread??? Charmed is the ONLY TV show that I watched from the first episode until the final without missing any episodes (during the original run). I have all DVDs on disk including the VHS for the Unaired Pilot as well as the TV Guide covers celebrating the 100th episode.

I watch the Charmed reruns but I tend to skip over Season 7 and 8. Phoebe was ridiculous during these 2 seasons with her constant finding love saga (Yawn). Prue was my favorite until Season 4 then it became Piper, HMC was fantastic.

I remember seeing a lot of people confused when Charmed Again aired, they thought they missed an episode between AHBL and CA because of how Shannen's departure was handled, which I say Poorly.

Exactly! As I mentioned above, I believe it's one of the series biggest flaws. Shannen should have either pre-filmed a death scene in anticipation for not returning or the producers should have gotten her back to film one before the production of season four - even if there was bad blood. Alyssa Milano wouldn't have even been needed as Phoebe was "trapped in the underworld" after the Source reversed time (another plot that made NO sense given that she was there in the first episode of the next season. How did she get back?) It was completely ridiculous to kill off one of the three main stars via conversation. We should have seen Piper's reaction, etc.

With that being said, season four actually ended up being my favorite season. Lol.

I loved Charmed. I agree that the earlier seasons were better. It did start to get out there in the last two seasons. Piper was my favorite and I liked her with Leo. I am a big HMC fan. She is the reason I started watching Pretty Little Liars.

i think every thing about prue was handle her death and everything else
i find it every annoying in last episode we did not just saw the regulars we saw white and chris as adults and babies and the their dead mother and grandma proving they no problem bring dead people and yet no prue
and i agree with everyone the first seasons was the best


btw from what i heard Shannen did not came back to last episode not because people on show had problem with but tori had problem with it and vetoit
anyone know if that was true

I remember this show - I started to watch it in December 2005 after my friend had talked about it for a while and when I did, it was like I couldn´t stop watching. I became a big fan of Alyssa Milano and Holly Marie Combs
