For seven seasons, the Halliwell sisters have charmed the pants off audiences with their wonderful Wiccan ways. But unless you’ve TiVoed the show’s occasional TNT rerun or have every bewitching moment of this crafty cult classic memorized, you may have forgotten just how the Power of Three came to be. For example, do you remember the mysterious Siamese cat that once protected the Halliwell household? Or Leo’s undercover occupation before he revealed to Prue, Piper, and Phoebe that he was a White-lighter? (He was a handyman, for those who started tuning in during season 2.) Magically delicious the 1st, 3rd, and even 20th time around, the first season of this supernatural Spelling series remains spellbinding thanks to its proper balance of quirky humor, Buffy-esque drama, and, naturally, the now dearly departed Prue (Shannen Doherty). Though the DVD contains no EXTRAS, die-hard and not-so-die-hard fans will still be charmed, I’m sure.
