Charmed Season 3

Charmed The Complete Third Season has recently been released on DVD. I must admit I haven't really seen much of the earlier seasons and I wondered if that would be a problem, but it turned out it was quite easy to get into the story. The fact that every episode is a story on its own does of course also help.

The Charmed ones are the three sister witches that are destined to protect mankind from the evil forces that threatens. Here we meet Prue, Piper and Phoebe played by Shannen Doherty, Holly Marie Combs and Alyssa Milano. They do all have different powers and as the season unfolds they also discover new powers.

If you liked the first two seasons I'm sure you'll find this one just as good. 22 episodes filled with action, adventure and supernatural powers as the three sisters battle evil as only they can do.

Even though every episode stands on its own there is also a story unfolding throughout the whole season. Phoebe experiences that there are more to her great love than meets the eye and maybe not all for the good. Piper and Leo want to marry, something the Elders don't quite approve of and they're not alone. This is also Shannen Doherty's last season.

What surprised me a bit about the DVD set is that it contains absolutely no bonus material. No deleted scenes, commentaries and such that fans always love and want to see when buying their favourite series on DVD.

This is entertainment and I guess you have to take it for what it is. I'm not quite hooked into the story and concept myself, but I'm definitely not part of the target audience either. So as entertainment for the average teenager I'm sure this is a sure winner.
