From Amazon.co.uk

Season eight of Charmed brings the story of the Halliwell sisters to a satisfying conclusion, but not without a lot of bumps on the road for the witchy trio. The season begins with Paige (Rose McGowan ), Piper (Holly Marie Combs), and Phoebe (Alyssa Milano)--exhausted after years of magical responsibility for protecting the mortal world and fighting off demons--pretending to be dead and hiding behind new appearances. (The characters, when seen in mirrored reflections or through the eyes of others, are played by different actresses.) The gambit works smoothly for awhile, until each of the sisters begins missing aspects of her old life and feeling a sense of responsibility for protecting the innocent. Meanwhile, a gaggle of restless, young demons suspect that the Halliwells aren’t really dead at all, and are out to prove it. While fending off new demonic plots to take over the sisters’ San Francisco home and seize control of a school of magic, Piper and Phoebe’s father, Victor (James Read), takes care of Piper and Leo’s kids at the near cost of his own life. Also, Phoebe falls for a sculptor (Jason Lewis) early in the season and Cupid (Victor Webster) himself later on; Paige considers a career in law enforcement; and a newcomer arrives on the scene: Billie (Kaley Cuoco), a young witch with a flashy, Buffy-like style as demon-slayer.

Billie’s story provides a narrative backbone to Charmed: The Final Season. Powerful but untutored, Billie reluctantly becomes a protégé of Paige, learning the ropes of witchcraft just as Paige did a couple of seasons back. The problem is that Billie makes a well-intentioned mess of a number of situations (at one point, she draws the attention of a Homeland Security agent to her powers), and then goes rogue when her long-lost sister shows up and turns Billie against the Halliwells. The latter half of the season slowly draws to a showdown between the two sets of siblings, but as always, there are lot of storylines with plenty of other issues and action to worry about. Longtime Charmed fans will certainly enjoy the series finale, an imaginative, time-travel tale in which some of the main characters meet different versions of themselves, and we all get a peek into what the future holds in store for the Halliwells as individual women. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an alternate DVD edition.

I always feel, when it comes to watching "Charmed: Season 8", that I am watching something I shouldn't be. What with the drama and finality of the Season Finale of Season 7, and then the rumours that were spun in the summer of 2005 (that "Charmed" could very possibly NOT be returning for an eighth season), it really seemed like that was going to be it - the sisters had defeated one of their deadliest enemies, fled The Manor and relinquished their lives as Halliwells and The Charmed Ones. They had faked their deaths, left it to the next generation and disappeared off, in disguise, with Leo. Daryl's reaction to this appeared to be a satisfied one, and Prue's ghost - it is believed - had shut The Manor door one last time (an apt end to the series).
This, however neatly tied up, just didn't seem right though. Of all the endings, renouncing their heritage and giving up on life as they knew it was just not satisfying enough. When I watched the finale to Season 7, although it was not confirmed that the show would continue, something inside me knew that it would. The feel that episode left the viewer with was an uneasy one...like this was not the end, regardless of what the network was saying. It never really felt that "Charmed" was to conclude like that.

And indeed, it didn't. As Season 8 opens in "Still Charmed And Kicking" you feel almost honoured that you are allowed to see what happens next, after the threat that The Halliwells would not return as The Charmed Ones again. The viewer gets to see HOW the characters get out of the mess that they seem to have created for themselves.

Season 8 is not the best of seasons, but it is yet another superb one. It begins by revealing The Halliwells are back in The Manor, living with their father Victor.

Well well well, it looks like CBS Paramount finally decided to spruce up the final box set, about time dont ya think?

For months weve been screaming out for the extras, just a gag reel would have sufficed but they've given all fans a real treat with this set. A whole 90 minutes of extras, i wont go into too much detail, in order to not reveal the suprise.

The series itself is quite a good one, granted some of the episodes are lets just say, not very easy on the eyes. Budget cuts forced the series to lose one main character and the special effects dipped a little. The addition of Billie breathed new talent on the show, a fresh approach was given and an all round twister of a story line. A couple of the episodes are a little tedious at time but overall the series keeps up the charmed legacy.

One thing to point out is where has the soundtrack disappeared too, the usual "how soon is now" theme seems to have been scrapped and has been replaced with an instrumental, a quite hip instrumental at that, but it doesnt give the episodes the same edge.

Humour is kept up, emotional ties are kept up, don't be fooled by the "season 8 is crap" reviews, Charmed Season 8 is a great season and the finale, well you'll just have to watch it for yourself.

Although you may need a box of kleenex at the ready.

Buy it.
Watch it.
Love it.

I never did follow this series while it was on television, but my children who were fans got me into watching it after the series ended. The season 8 is a great ending to the charmed series, spanning 8 compelling years of magic and the fight between the good and evil, with the good triumphing in the final battle.
This DVD has all the episodes of season 8 in 6 discs, with the last disc containing some bonus features. The picture quality and audio is very good and clear. The bonus features include:

The making of charmed - E. Duke Vincent, Brad Kern and a host of the cast and producers talk about the making of the series charmed. Everything you wanted to know about the creating of the series, the writing, the casting, the pilot and the unaired pilot,the wardrobe especially the creating of the hideous demons and creatures, the special effects. Etc

The story of Charmed: Genesis - this explores the origins and conception of the charmed series and much more, what story lines made the series a fan favourite for so long, from the 1st series to the 3rd series when Prue died.

The story of Charmed: Charmed again - the story of the first episode of season four after the death of Prue, the continuation of the series to the last episode of season 8.

To the manor Born - a tour of the Haliwell manor, the principal set for the shooting of the series, with explanations and flash backs on the most spectacular actions in different rooms on the set.

Forever Charmed: this shows fan interviews on their views of charmed and why they were hooked for so long, and cast and crew talking about their views of the millions of charmed fans.

So you see this DVD is packed with tons of bonus features as well as the complete episodes of the season 8.

Charmed: Season 8 was something that was in much debate about returning. The producers of the show knew they were going to have to create a very dramatic and different show to what we had experienced over the past seven years and in some ways they succeeded...others not so much.

One of the requirements of the eighth season was they employed new actors. So Dex, Coop, Henry, Billie, Christy; they may not have been your favourite characters and may not have compared to people they replaced like (unfortunately) Leo and Daryl to name just a few but they were a few of the main saviours of Charmed.

Some of the plotlines, SUCKED. The Billie and Christy thing for one thing seemed to eradicate the entire point of Charmed. Piper, Phoebe and Paige are the most powerful witches and although Billie grows on you with her young-witch 'tude, Christy is just downright annoying!

The whole escaping their death plotline was abandoned in the first few episodes which was admittedly a relief,although it was slightly anti-climatic.

That was the bad points. The good points. We had another season! No-one could really believe the Halliwells' destiny was to end up mortal. To never see Phoebe have that little girl? To never see Paige find her Mr-Right? To never found out - does Piper finally have Melinda? All those questions are answered.

The final episodes which is a HUGE battle are quite thrilling.

Forever Charmed is the final episode and also the best and the saddest. It'll make all true fans shed a tear. The music theme change has quite a sad tone if you put yourself in the right context but before this was released on DVD, on Living tv, I saw Season 8 with the original theme music.
