I would have to see that the Christmas episode of Charmed as their mid-season finale was their strongest episode yet. The numbers were up the last few episodes. So, we shall see what happens. On other message boards that I'm on, I'm starting to see a decline in the anti-reboot rhetoric.
Well...Charmed is getting a second season. The ratings were up 1/27 over the previous week. However, they are staying pretty consistent in their ratings. I really don't see the new Charmed as so different than the original. I love the original series, and I always will.
Been binging the new show on Netflix. I'm at least at episode 13 or so. They just fought a Pixie
I'm really enjoying the joy and the jokes. Though I am very disappointed that Macy seems to have decided toto a man she barely started dating.Spoiler:
I mean they didn't even have their first date by the time he found out their secret and now their exchanging "i love you"s?
That's the most unrealistic thing in this show of witches. I had hoped they treated the growth of these relationships with some realism. While Galvin is "okay", Parker has more value as a staying character. And his feelings for Maggie seem earned.
I don't know what's going on with Galvin. Maybe it's the fact he is buddy-buddy with the writer and creators, but his character arc was slow and seems to have gotten onto a rocket ship.
I care because it just seems to hurt Macy's agency and choice. Just because he said, he loves her and all of a sudden is willing to risk his life for her (when he was just dating someone else not too long ago), that means he should be rewarded by Macy.
That is a terrible message. I hope I am wrong and the next episode interferes with that.
Otherwise, I've been enjoying it.
While the episodes did get better as season 1 progressed, the show never grabbed me. It never made me have the "I can't wait for the next episode to air" feeling like the original Charmed did. In some Charmed related Facebook groups I belong to, I've said that it wouldn't really bother me if I missed an episode or two. Maybe that will change in season 2. If it doesn't...I doubt that I will continue watching the show. My son, who is 14, says that the reboot is a cheap immitation of the orginial.
If anyone is interested...season 2 of Charmed starts tomorrow (10/11/19) on the CW. Not sure of the time. I am usually excited for new seasons to start but this one still feels "meh" to me.
On one hand I really like the new Season, but they just had to pull out another storyline or better continue it from the previous Season. I would like to Scream.
Well...so far...this reboot still remains a filler show for me. Not much else on TV on Friday nights. The storyline of the Charmed Ones being powerless has gone on for too long. I hope they change things soon. Currently, Charmed has a -37.89% change in viewership compared to season 1.
