Description

"Stronger together." That's what Marisol (guest star Valerie Cruz) tells her daughters, firebrand social justice warrior Melanie "Mel" Vera (Melonie Diaz), and her sister, fun-loving Maggie (Sarah Jeffery), about their family. Mel is a graduate student in the women's studies department her mother heads at Hilltowne University; Maggie is a freshman considering sorority rush (to Mel's amused dismay) and going "on" again with her on-again/off-again boyfriend, Brian (guest star Charlie Gillespie). But then, a shocking tragedy shatters their world and threatens their sibling bond: Marisol dies in a horrifying accident. Or was it? Three months later, we find Mel unable to accept the official explanation of their mother's death, while Maggie accuses her of being morbidly obsessed. And then, another huge shock shows up at their front door: they have an older sister – brilliant geneticist Macy (Madeleine Mantock), whom their mother kept a secret all these years! Macy is new in town and doesn't know a soul (except for Galvin (Ser'Darius Blain), the cute fellow scientist who's been showing her around). Macy is eager to connect with Mel and Maggie, but Mel can't handle another shock, and shuts her out. With the emotions of all three sisters running high, each of the girls suddenly exhibit impossible new abilities: Mel can freeze time, Maggie starts hearing others' thoughts and Macy has telekinetic powers. But don't worry, there's a perfectly reasonable explanation...or so says Harry Greenwood (Rupert Evans) – who as far as they know is the officious new chair of the women's studies department - when he gathers the three sisters together to reveal they're actually powerful witches, as was their mother. And he's not really a professor, he's their "Whitelighter," a witch's advisor and guide! Not only that, but Mel was right: their mother's death was no accident – she was murdered by unknown dark forces. It's a lot to take in, but ultimately the sisters accept their new destiny as The Charmed Ones...and their new duty to protect humankind from the demons that walk among us...one of whom killed their mother. With the Power of Three, they are stronger together...even if they have no idea what they're really up against.

  • Clumsy writing overshadows an okay reboot

    By RWatson3
    There are a lot of good things here; the three leads are archetypal but believable, the design is strong, the effects are great, the original concept carries over well. The writing, however, falls flat, largely due to the hamfisted social commentary. I want to be clear; I don't take issue with the message. The way the writers chose to deliver it, however, was to beat the viewer over the head with it through strained dialogue and entirely predictable conflict. Don't tell me over and over again that these are strong, modern women that are here for a reckoning; show me through their actions, the relationships that develop believably over time, etc. I can understand that some like it but I won't be tuning in again; too many other good shows with good social commentary to watch, don't have any time for bad shows with good social commentary.

    SJWs dream, everyone elses nightmare. Total hatred for anyone white especially male and straight. Most racist, sexist, bigoted show I've ever seen and totally obvious in the message they are trying to send. My biggest regret was I paid $1.99 for the pilot.

    I think that sums it up. This show is horrible. The girls whitlighter is British. Really. He sounds stupid with everything he said. He can not act but that is alright because the girls who play the charmed ones can’t act either. If you are a fan of the original then don’t waste your time with this show. It is the worst.

    Acting is horrific and the show is a total slap in the face to the original Charmed. It seems they are more concerned with trying to cram as many social/political issues as they can into a single episode rather than a good/solid storyline.
  • Needs another reboot! Way to sexist

    Well I was hoping for a magical show Very disappointed! Story line characters cgi very mediocre. Needs original team to produce write and post production cgi. When using there powers no emotion or facial or physical gestures. Very Poor!!!

  • Waste of time

    By Joann Rodriguez
    There is no chemistry between the sisters. This show is trying extremely hard with its feministic agenda that they didn’t pay attention to the storyline. They should’ve definitely remained the show because this is not Charmed.
  • Horrifyingly Bad - Avoid At All Cost!

    By Mike T (Colorado)
    Charmed SJW may be one of the top 10 worst TV shows ever made (and that says a lot!). The acting is beyond horrible. Watchers cannot emotionally connect with the characters. It is a tragic parady of the awesome original that seems concocted in a Women Studies class by micro-cephalic crackheads. The special effects appear to be taken from the Harry Potter movies and the Game of Thrones TV series. The script is cringe-worthy. Stay Away! Awful! Horrifyingly Bad! Do NOT waste your money or time.
  • Ridiculously terrible

    There’s so much wrong with this it would take for ever to list. Charmed was an amazing show and this reboot is just terrible.

    I was very excited about it, but not even 10 mins into the episode I hated it. I decided to give it a chance and watched the whole episode, but it was a waste of time.
  • Not a fan.

    If I wanted to get hit over the head with social-justice messages, I'd just go on Twitter. I watch tv, especially in this genre, to escape from reality for a while.
  • Please cancel this show

    Now THIS is a series that shouldn't go beyond season 1 (or even 1/2 of season 1) ... unlike Firefly, Forever, Wisdom of the Crowd that were more deserving.

    I loved the original Charmed. This remake has the same skeleton, but is it's own beautiful version. More realistic to today's world and culture. I'm excited to see where it goes!
