A Case Against the “Charmed” Reboot

by T. Mack

If you know me, you probably know I love, love, and love me some Charmed, the WB/CW show from the late 90’s about 3 sister-witches who fought the forces of evil. I own the entire series (a complete 8-season set) on DVD and watch it at least twice a year. I have featured the Halliwell sisters here on the site in a stand-alone article and as part of a piece about fictional witches. In the latter, the lesson that I advise you to take away from the group is that you should not be defined by your powers (skills, knowledge, or talents). Instead decide who you will be and use your powers to show the world who you are. The show was (and still is) so good that you can pull wonderful nuggets like that out of it even while you enjoy the outlandish costumes, cheesy dialogue, dramatic sibling rivalry, outdated special effects, and wonderful late-90’s/early-00’s tropes.

After years of rumors, deliberation, and false starts, the CW network has decided to move forward with a reboot of the series. And I am NOT here for it. Here’s my case against the Charmed reboot:

Star-Wars-The-Last-Jedi

We three Sister Geeks have all experienced Star Wars: The Last Jedi (some of us twice). Of course, we all have strong feelings about it. But it’s the holiday season and scheduling prevents us from getting together to gush about it in proper fashion. However, we can’t let this week go by without at least sharing some of our feelings about the latest chapter of our favorite space opera. So check out this quick and dirty, spoiler-free share of our TLJ feels.
