Well, we had a character change for series 4, and we get another for the 100th episode* this season. Yep we bid a fond farewell to Cole : ( But there will be a tiny new cast member – this season sees the birth of Piper and Leo’s baby.
Season 5 stills retains it’s sense of realism with the added drama and wit that made CHARMED a huge success, but for me this series lost that special something that made it a must watch programme, though it picks it up as it nears the end.

Don't listen to the negative reviews, this series is just as good as the previous 4, if not better. I'll admit, the loss of Cole from the main cast is unfortunate, but at least in this series not everything revolves around Phoebe and Cole's relationship (as it seemed to in season 4).
This season feels much more light-hearted, with the Charmed ones becoming super-heroes and Greek goddesses as well as one of them becoming a nymph and another becoming a mermaid.
Standout episodes for me-

*Witches in Tights-
A young boy has an extraordinary gift- his drawings come to life. Unfortunately there is a demon on hand to take full advantage... enter the Super- Charmed Ones!

*Centennial Charmed-
Happy Birthday Cole (his 100th to be exact). What do you get for a 100 year old demon, when all he wants...is to be vanquished?

*Y Tu Mummy Tambien-
A demon mummifies the bodies of witches in a quest to find a body to hold the spirit of his dead lover, Isis. Only problem is that he has yet to find a strong enough body. Could a Charmed One be what he is looking for?

*The Day the Magic Died-
Magic (good and evil) has disappeared from the world, the magical community is in crisis and Piper has gone into labour (great timing).

*Oh My Goddess (parts 1 and 2)-
When the Titans are unleashed and seek revenge on the Elders, it becomes clear that it will take more than Charmed-like powers to destroy them for good. Perhaps God-like powers are needed...

Well I know it seems to be controversial but this is my favourite season so far. It's great to see Rose Macgowen really comming into her own, she is really refreshing from Shannon Doherty and there is a much more even dynamic to the show. We see Piper becoming more motherly which is really important for later series as it becomes a crucial drive for her. As much as we will all miss Cole - ENOUGH ALL READY! The Cole/Pheobe story line went on for a while and it is great to see Alyssa Milano freed up for the next season, this isn't her strongest performance. I think this season is really fun and lively and a great exploration of the characters. It is a prelude for a kick into high gear in six and seven, leaving the Chris and Avatar storylines a mystery at this point. Keep this in mind and I think you will really enjoy it. Centennial Charmed is my favourite episode in this season, not only does it set the tone for the rest of the season and the next but it's the one which I think officialy made Paige my favourite sister.

As with the rest of the Charmed series I was an avid viewer and was really sad when the series finished up. When the series were new on the television I remember my friend and myself would hold weekly Charmed nights where we would watch the weeks new episode whilst enjoying a few glasses of vino with it! I ordered the box set to go along with the rest of the set that I had and have now got the full series seasons 1 to 8. This is one of those box sets that you can watch again and again as each episode was a new little story obviously in the greater scheme of the plot. Absolutely loved Charmed and wish they would either bring it back with a maybe 10 years later view or do a spin off with their children etc, never mind and here's hoping! I would fully recommend this series to anyone.

after rewatching this season of charmed i have found that this season is actually by far the classiest out of all eight...while the first two seasons were plain boring,the third being an improvement, the fourth made it dark and entertaining...now season 5 is the greatest season of the show and definitely shows off the hilarious talents from all three of the sisters...especially phoebe, and great to see Paige's character gain more depth this year...season 5 contains most of the shows recognizable episodes and definitely contains the best of charmed-centennial charmed,siren song,the importance of being phoebe(the best),the day the magic died, and the hilarious sense and sense-ability a genuinly great season that no other season managed to achieve and the only season that i couldnt compare with the far superior show BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER so while charmed couldnt live up to the standards of BUFFY it came close with this season...and at this great price i would buy it...season 4 and 8 are also quite enjoyable:)
episodes-
a witches tail-best transformation ever...and the best season opener 5/5.
happily ever after-very enjoyable 4/5
siren song-one of the best episodes ever 5/5:)
witches in tights-classic 5/5
the eyes have it-okay episode reasonably cool 3/5
sympathy for the demon-an exciting eppy with barbas 5/5
a witch in time-another season great 5/5
sam i am-yet another classic episode with adrenaline 5/5
y tu mummy tambien-another classic 5/5
the importance of being phoebe-just the best episode ever(well nearly)5/5:)
centennial charmed-this is the best episode ever!!! 5/5
house call-another fun one 3/5
sand Francisco dreamin'-'another great episode i love it 5/5
the day the magic died-just when you thought it couldnt get classier...it did 5/5
babys first demon-very fun 4/5
lucky charmed-a campy classic 4/5
cat house-great great great 4.5/5
nymphs jus wanna have fun-actually the only dud in the season 2/5:(
sense and sensability-the funniest episode ever!!!!never beaten 5*/5
necromancing the stone-pretty cool 4.5/5
oh my goddess-a great cliffhanger,great effects,possibly the last way for a while a great season finale occurs as many charmed finales are considered weak...but not this one...this is charmed meets xena:)
as you see it is a classy season!
while never able to reach the standards of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER this season is the only one that doesn't appear as a rip-off but as an independant gem and i like that:):)possibly the only season i'd consider buying at the moment...and a great price.

As with any season of any show, this season has it's weak episodes, but it is brilliant nontheless. It contains some of my favourite episodes and the acting standard is as high as ever. The show reaches it's 100th episode milestone this season with a fab episode 'Centennial Charmed', in which an exciting plotline leaves Paige in another dimension where her sisters don't even know she exists. Charmed continues to excite and delight with gripping storylines and hilarious comic moments. Charmed is sure to cast a spell on you. Standout episodes are:
Sympathy For the demon
Sand Francisco dreamin'
The day the magic died
Baby's first demon
Cat House
Sense and sense ability
Oh my Goddess

the thought of having to wait til february isn't fair!!! i think that charmed season 5 is the best season so far!!! where do i start....Cole!!! he becomes obsessed with trying to win Phoebe back, and becomes this unstoppable powerful demon with powers he absorbed when in the demonic wasteland seen in season 4. the first Charmed offspring arrives in the form of Piper and Leo's child, who is able to use their powers from in the womb to make Piper protected and indestructable.my fave episode of the season is Centennial Charmed, the shows 100th episode which sees Cole becoming an Avatar (the first introduction of them i think, i could be mistaken!) for those who havent seen it i wont spoil it by telling you what happens in it. my others fave episodes include Sympathy for the demon (which see Barbas back tricking the sisters so he can trap them and use their fears against each other), and the season enders Oh My Goddess(cool costumes for the girls and also the introduction of Chris played by Drew Fuller, something eyecandy for me :-D!!!)

One of many great shows from the late 90s in my opinion. "Early Edition" and "Charmed" being two of my favourites. Shows combining everyday life and something supernatural, which I think is an awesome and very entertaining combination. That was a very popular trend in TV shows created between 1995 and 2000 ("Buffy", "Angel" and "Touched by an Angel" are other examples of that kind of TV series). For those who don't know what this is all about, it follows three witch sisters living in San Fransisco. They have three different powers (bring time to a standstill, see the future and move objects using only the mind), but (almost) no one except them know they have these powers or know they are witches. They have to use these powers to deal with everything from demons to more regular stuff. You can probably imagine how entertaining it is. I also happen to find Holly Marie Combs and Alyssa Milano VERY HOT! Highly recommended. I have always just really liked the atmosphere in this show.

If you like Charmed then you'll love Charmed the 5th series....bursting with wonderful Wiccan adventures these three sister witches are truely bewitching!
After meeting an evil Prince Charming...rescuing a Mermaid and joining forces with Leprechauns one can only wonder what the Charmed ones can have in store for us next.Inviting the viewer to escape into their magical fantasy world of demon vanquishing and demonic hunts they still intrigue us into how they manage to hold down jobs and relationships, which proves to be troublesome even for these modern day heroines... as this series proves.
With this series The Charmed Ones invite you to join them on their supernatural journey of adventure, humour and suspense hope you enjoyed it as much as i have.

I absouloutly love this season, i think it is one of the best seasons along with season 8. All the episodes were exciting and i recommend it to anyone that likes charmed or programs to do with magic.

The best bits of the season were when pheobe turned into a mermaid, when they all turned into godesses and when Wyatt was born!!

I think that anyone who is thinking of buying a charmed boxset should buy this one with-out a doubt!
