Many people watch television shows and movies for the following reasons:
- To be entertained.
- To have an idea as to what is trending.
- To satisfy their curiosity.
- To pass the time.
Sometimes the shows that we watch will meet our expectations and at other times, we are left feeling dissatisfied (As a matter of fact, our taste in television shows are unique in the sense that someone else will enjoy a television show that we disliked).
Today, I am going to share with you, some of the television shows and movies that I thought were okay (Please note that I referred to them as “Okay” and not as “Splendid” because they are not the best that the movie and television industry has to offer).
So, without further ado, it is time to have a look at my unique list of television shows and movies.
The version of Charmed that I am referring to here is not the one that aired from Wednesday the 7th of October, 1998 to Sunday the 21st of May, 2006 (which I loved by the way), but the rebooted version of the television series; which debuted on The CW on Sunday the 14th of October, 2018.
This modern version of Charmed is way different from the original television series (The original has its fictional setting in San Fransico, whereas, the current version has its fictional setting in a place called, Hilltowne and the family name was changed from Halliwell to Vera).
What remains the same is that The Charmed Ones are the most powerful witches around ― a trio of witches who protect humanity from demons and other evil creatures from the supernatural world.
Madeleine Mantock plays Macy Vaughn, the eldest sister. She is the nerd in the family (she has a Ph.D. in molecular genetics) and she is also practical, driven and shy. Her special power is telekinesis.
Melonie Diaz acts as Mel Vera, the middle half-sister. She is a highly passionate feminist, a lesbian and a graduate student in the women’s studies department at Hilltowne University. Her special power is freezing time.
Sarah Jeffery acts as Meggie Vera, the youngest sister. She is kindhearted and vivacious. Her special power is empathy.
Rupert Evans is the person who portrays Harry Greenwood ― the whitelighter who is tasked with guiding and protecting the witches.
Charmed was created by Constance M. Burge and was developed for television by Amy Rardin, Jennie Snyder Urman and Jessica O’Toole.
Fans of this American fantasy-drama television series can view new episodes of the show on The CW on Sundays at 8:00 PM Eastern Time.
