From Amazon.co.uk

Charmed: The Complete First Season recaptures a period when television's WB network was particularly keen on series about the supernatural and specially powered characters. The original home of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and future launch pad for Angel and Smallville, the WB debuted Charmed in 1998 with many of the same intriguing ironies that made those other shows click. Specifically, the greater a character's powers, the more vulnerable he or she becomes; the more superhuman, the more painfully obvious one's lonely, fragile humanity. The Halliwells, a trio of witch heroines and siblings at the center of Charmed, is a case in point. Phoebe (Alyssa Milano) returns to her San Francisco family home after losing her job, and moves in with her older sisters Prue (Shannen Doherty) and Piper (Holly Marie Combs). On her first night back, Phoebe finds the Book of Shadows in the attic and recites a spell giving all three women unique powers they were always meant to have: Prue suddenly has the gift of telekinesis, Piper can make time stand still, and Phoebe can see into the future. All well and good, but along with those extraordinary abilities is a new awareness of dark forces in the world from which mortals need protection. In some cases, those forces have been plotting a long time to steal the Halliwell's magical legacy once they awakened to it--and now they will never let up.

Evil warlocks, demons, ancient curses, Grimlocks, and Wendigos (the last two are best left explained by their respective episodes), however, are only half the battle on this sexy dramedy, in which more ordinary matters of emotional and real-world survival also preoccupy the Halliwells. An important ally, Inspector Andy Trudeau (Ted King), is Prue's ex-lover, a delicate detail that mixes pain with duty as the couple rekindles their troubled relationship while solving otherworldly crimes. In "Dead Man Dating," Piper falls for the ghost of a murdered man who needs help, and later competes with Phoebe for the attention of a handyman, Leo (Brian Krause). Jobs and money are always an issue, too. At one time or another, Phoebe works as a psychic, Piper as a caterer, and Prue finds a job at an auction house. As with Buffy, the engine of Charmed is the seamless, sometimes-comic, sometimes-tender way in which all these dynamics in the magic and non-magic worlds blend together, presenting young adult challenges that are both unique and somehow terribly familiar. It is particularly fun to watch this series grow, deepen, and experiment during its first year. The season's true highlight is probably "That 70s Episode," in which the Halliwells go back in time to meet their younger selves. --Tom Keogh

5.0 out of 5 stars Charmed-A Wicca'd Beginning 14 Dec 2004
Format:DVD
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Charmed - a charmed life 13 Aug 2005
Format:DVD
Prue, Piper, and Phoebe Halliwell are three sister who (after their Grandmothers death) return to live in the mansion, in which they were brought up! On their first night back, a huge storm and a power cut ensue, so the girls start to play with their old spirit board (ouija board!) A message tells them to look in their attic! As Phoebe reaches the attic she finds a book, hidden in a trunk. The book is called "The Book of Shadows", Phoebe then reads an incantation and suddenly their lives are in danger when they find out they are "The Charmed Ones" and that every woman in their family line were Witches! Now, Prue can move things with her mind (Telekiniesis), Piper can Freeze Time (Molecular Combustion), and Phoebe recieves premnitions of the past, present and Future...GREAT! But the downside is, now their powers have been awakened they will be attacked by various Demons and Warlocks intent on stealing their powers! Once you watch the first episode of this breath taking series you wont go back! This series is a little dated compared to the newer stuff, but it still takes my breath away! A must have in your DVD collection

5.0 out of 5 stars Pilot Included! 22 Jan 2005
By A. Rae
Format:DVD
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..

5.0 out of 5 stars Something Wicca this way came 2 July 2009
By Uenna TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
This marked the start of eight years of compelling magical and entertaining series of Charmed. My children being ardent fans soon had me hooked on this series. I must say this first series is my favourite season even though the magic, the storyline and the special effects were much simpler than in later seasons, but I love it most for the naive early beginnings and best of all the banter and romantic development between Prue (Shannon Doherty ) and Andy (T. W. King of the General hospital fame). It was fresh and sometimes one wondered where the writers where going with it, but to see the sisters start bonding and supporting one another in the face of the ensuing evil forces they had to fight/ vanquish was good. The character developments and quirky naivety of the likes of Leo their white lighter made for a great comedy as well as good drama.

By mid season, there was heightened suspense and humour as the police detective, Andy Trudo (played by T.W. King ) tried hard to uncover Prue and her Sister's secret. In episode 20 - `the Power of two' he finally finds out, whoa! However 2 episodes later he is killed trying to protect Prue (the love of his life) and her sister's secret. What an emotional and heart rending episode the season finale turned out to be. I was saddened to see Andy killed off at the end of the first season, as I had hoped that he and Prue would have made a great couple / team to match the power of three of the three sisters. I understand that at the time the writers did not want a powerful male lead that may overshadow the three female leads, I don't know if that is true. Whatever the case may have been it was great to have had him in this season and it sure made for great entertainment.

By Keith_Joseph HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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).
