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. Why 4 stars though - the theme music of Charmed has been substituted with a different music. Why? I do not know, but it kind of robbed it of some of its charm. All the same it is a great DVD to own and at the sale price a good buy. Enjoy.
