After Doctor Who last night, I decided after much thought to watch Charmed. Not just the old Charmed, but the new Charmed. I wasn’t sure if I was going to like it because I was a fan of the original. Thinking, how could they reboot it? But, again. So many other shows are being rebooted. Some with new cast or old cast. This one has an all-new cast.
Now that I’ve seen the episode, I can say it’s not exactly a reboot. Yes, there are similar things from the original. But, I think they can make it on their own without copying the original too much. There is the white lighter, three sisters, and book of shadows.
I have to watch the original again and I feel like I should know this because of being a fan of the original. Maybe I was tired, but it looked to be the same house on the outside. Definitely different on the inside.
The powers seem to be similar, except the youngest sister can read minds. The original, the youngest sister had visions. The only other thing I can think of that is similar. Is that one sister is actually a half-sister.
If you are a fan of Game of Thrones and see the demon of the week. I’m sure you’ll think what I’m thinking. He looks very similar to a character from Game of Thrones.
The white lighter, not sure what to think of him yet. There is something about him, I feel like we can’t trust him. But, there is a reason for that. I don’t want to go into that due to spoilers.
I do hope to do spoiler posts eventually, but I’ll warn you when I do.
For Charmed though, I could see me liking it. I just hope it doesn’t get backed up like all my other shows. Hopefully, I won’t be binge watching it over the summer, lol.
