Containing all of the original episodes, Charmed Season 1 is going to be a must have for any fan. It follows the story of the 3 witch sisters; Prue, Piper and Phoebe, as they learn of their powers and defeat various demons. It shows the 3 witches at their best, with subtitles and other features. The only way to complete a Charmed collection is to own the very first Season of the best programme to hit TV!

Having watched charmed religously on living tv in all the reruns over on over again i had to start getting the boxsets. part from not having any special features this is not to be missed by any fan we see how it all began in the pilot episode something wicca this way comes where sisters Piper Halliwell (Holly Marie Combs) & Pru Halliwell (Shannon Dougherty of Beverley Hills 90210) Are reunited with younger Sister Phoebe (Alysa Milano from who's the boss) and soon find out that they have a family secret that they are from a long line of witches. as the season progreses we see the sisters come up against many demons warloks and even the law in what will eventually be the oofset of the whole series.

In regards to the previous review that this set "does not include the pilot"...it doesn't include the unaided pilot that's never been shown anywhere so your not missing anything... but the official pilot we all know as "Something Wicca This Way Comes" is most definitely on the set to say "it doesn't include the pilot" suggests that the box set is not complete as we all want it!
But it is..
Season one consisted of the Pilot "Something Wicca This Way Comes" and 21 episodes hence 22 complete eps, I hope that elevates any fears people had that the set didn't include the ENTIRE first season..

Charmed is a pretty unique television show and considering it ran on for eight seasons the very first season points towards the success that it enjoyed. Based around the lives of three young sisters who discover they have magical abilities, Charmed follows their every day lives as well as their perilous experiences with demons and magical creatures. There is a definite and strong feminist theme throughout the show that some male viewers might find a bit hard to swallow, since the male characters are either really handsome yet stupid or evil Warlocks out to get the sisters! That said it is a good piece of family television and is very upbeat and cheerful throughout. I cannot think of a better show for the whole family to watch on a Sunday night.

Days off will never be the same. Hours and hours of Charmed without a commercial break - YIPPEE! It's here AT LAST after 7 long years. Buy it NOW! Fantastic for young or old (my daughter & I are hooked). Bring on Series 2 - 7!

My daughter (12) has fallen under the spell of the Charmed Ones and now has every season on DVD including 8 - it's probably all that girl power that attracts her and she was a dedicated old/new Worst Witch fan - although my son (10) happily watches Charmed with her (perhaps he secretly routes for the demons). Some of her Charmed seasons were recorded from Living TV re-runs on Sky but others were purchased from Amazon (we get the far cheaper NTSC region 1 offerings from Amazon resellers). Naturally the episodes are far nicer without 20 minutes of adverts. We missed the series first time around - so it's great to get all the episodes in one go. To find out more about the charmed ones than most people want to know, see thecharmedones.com - its handy as TV episodes never have the name of the episode in the credits, unlike the DVD set menus.

I have watched a lot of Charmed episodes with her and I have to say that I slightly preferred the later seasons, e.g. season 7 with the rise of Avatars and their attempts to create heaven on Earth. However this season is really good as a starting point (naturally) and has the attraction of older sister Prue joining Piper and Phoebe, as they discover the Book of Shadows and become the 'power of three' (just in time as it happens). Ok over all 8 seasons a few stories repeat a bit (there must be around 160+ episodes) and some of the acting is a bit on the `Victoria Principal' level with girly pouts and eye rolling, but it is all great classy fun. In many ways the series has a non-violent feel with little blood and gore despite the high body count (although there is the mystery of how does a flaming vaporising demon fail to leave a scorch mark on the sofa).
