The attic-door had been closed up untill then, but now opens for the three sisters.

In this first season you get to know these three charming sisters who struggle through life as the charmed ones

Sound and Vision:
Nothing disturbing, everything quite decent. At times the image is a bit soft and pale, but that doesn’t bother too much.

Extras:
None

Conclusion:
*This conclusion might contain spoilers.*

I really love the series, I have all available seasons on dvd. I have seen this first season about three times on DVD and than I’m not talking about the endless reruns on tv.

There is one thing I ask myself, a white lighter is some sort of guardian angel who protects and heals witches. In later seasons you find this person is always on-call for whenever a witch needs him, so why does he need to keep it a secret in this first season? Not only for Piper, but also for Prue, and Phoebe was never to find out in the first place…. Besides this little mindbreaker it’s a great serie, it’s been put together magnificently. Dialogue is great, etc etc… Nothing but praise.

Our Score:
6.0
