I never saw the first series, until after watching this new one, First because I don't like Shannon dockerty. She always seems to portray a bitch and self righteous person.
I find the old one after 4 episodes a police investigation. Too many out there already.
But I found this new one enlightening, the one sister no be knew of, and later finding out more.
The whole finding out they are witches and learning their skills, and a white lighter helping, makes more sense then the old one they seem to jump right into their powers.
I like this new one, still gonna watch the old one, but keep going, and give it s chance stop comparing.!

This series started out so horribly. The first 3 eps were so painful to watch. But I stuck with it. And even though It's not great, it's not horrible either. It's just okay.

Who knew that a Charmed reboot of all things would inspire me to write my first review? The fact that they decided to make a feminist reboot of the original is like a slap in the face of all the fans who know the original was already feminist. The reboot has all the popular buzzwords, minorities, PC social issues etc., but does that make the show feminist or fun? No, it makes it contrived and bad TV (with some bad acting and boring scripts thrown in the mix). It's absolutely appalling that this got a second season, but I guess the current trend in shows like these is to cater to the "OMG patRiarcHY!!?!" girls. I myself can be considered a feminist, but I'll stick to the original Charmed and Buffy, thanks.

Wow. I thought it was just bad. Now, it's crossed the line into overtly racist.
No good. I only watch to see Craig Parker.

I gave this show a fair chance by watching the first 10 episodes. Cannot believe I made it through that many. I sat through some appalling acting, unrealistic plots and characters, Feminism being thrown at you, and political statements every five minutes. I tried to like this show, even tried liking some of the new characters. I watched the original TV series, and yes, can say that this 2018 revamp is completely different. Some are even liking the new show. Me? Not so much. I would rather spend my time watching shows that have actual meaning, decent plot lines and great acting. This show tries too hard to be good, but in the end it comes across as a cheesy social media experiment based around today's expectations from society. I will now be deleting this from my followed shows.

I am absolutely hooked!! While the premise is similar to the original Charmed (in the good versus evil, witches, elders, book of shadows, white-lighters, etc caveat) this is a completely different show. If you were expecting a remake, you will be disappointed. This "reboot" with its' modernization is fantastic. The characters have completely different strengths, and weaknesses than the Halliwell sisters had, different powers, and a completely different set of circumstances. While I really enjoyed the original, I like the next generation feel of this show. The chemistry the actors have is excellent, and I am enjoying seeing completely different ideas from the original. I really hope it is renewed, as I am always anxiously awaiting the next episode.

Definitely not as good as the original but O.K. Like the acting and of Harry Greenwood, but Mel Vera is little to butch for a witch. I think that character takes away from the show. I also think there could be little more action or magic going on to make it more exciting and less drama. The show, scripts, characters and acting seems to be pointing towards a very young audience, that of which I am not. Stopped watching.

Wasn't sure about this at first and the first episode seemed a bit forced and full of a lot of info - but the show grew on me.

Really wanted to give it a chance and stay objective akka not comparing to the old charmed, but after a few episodes i couldnt watch anymore. Bad actors, bad story, bad pretty much in every way. What a shame.
