Happy almost Halloween! What better way to celebrate the spooky season than with a new television show. Before, I talk about this new exciting reboot, I just want to mention that I am not a television watcher. I have never been addicted to any show before, so when I invest my time in a show, it must be good. In fact, it has ignited a new interest in me to the point where I’m actually considering upgrading my cable TV package. Looking at the latest cable tv statistics and the number of people still tuning in, I can only assume that I’ve been missing out on some quality programming all this time.
Anyways, I have never been a Halloween fan, but I do like the spooky season leading up to Halloween. I enjoy (in moderation) the gloomy days and the crisp, windy weather, so there is no better time than to spend a night in bed with the lights off and a mysterious, thrilling show. Cue the trailer of Charmed, a new series premiering tomorrow, October 14th at 9/8c on The CW.
This show is unlike any show I have ever watched, because I am not the biggest fan of shows or movies that focus on the supernatural. Instead, I always seem to gravitate towards relatable shows, whether that means I can connect with the plot, characters, themes, location, and so on. So, when it comes to Charmed, I cannot relate to being a witch or having super powers, but what I can associate with is the power of sisterhood. I cannot imagine how stressful it must have been when the three sisters, Macy, Mel, and Maggie discovered their magical powers, but sticking together as sisters they accept their powers and support one another.
I know that me and my older sister’s relationship is similar to the three girls in Charmed, because if me and my sister found out we had magical powers (if that was the case I hope I had the ability to hear people’s thoughts) we would be the loving and strong sisters we are and handle it just like Macy, Mel, and Maggie. After all, there is no better bond than a sister’s bond because sisters will always be stronger together.
After watching the Charmed trailer and behind the scenes videos countless of times (check them all out here) I am still unsure how the storyline is going to play out. The uncertainty behind the plot and characters is what interests me and will keep me tuning in every week. Also, cannot forget to mention how bad ass Macy, Mel, and Maggie are…like talk about girl power. I could not think of a better way to cure my Sunday scaries every week, so every Sunday get the popcorn popping, the wine flowing, relax, and get invested in Charmed.
