      Hi Carla, I feel the same way! Obviously fans of the original show are not flocking to the new one. I hope in the future they can get it right with the original cast!

      I love the original. Do not like the new one. If they don't pick the other up for another season that should tell them something. I'm still watching the original on TNT and POP. Love it.

      Hi Abby, I couldn’t agree more! Charmed is one of those shows that you never get tired of! That’s wonderful you watch with your daughter and it’s special to you! I was so upset when Prue was killed off too, but I think the character of Paige was fun and added a lightheartedness to the show.

      Sorry to disappoint but you have some wrong information. Wyatt, Piper, and Chris went by Halliwell, not Wyatt. When they were looking for a name for their son they chose to name him after Leo, hince the Wyatt but to keep the last name as Halliwell to continue the Halliwell line and to leave no doubt in the minds of the demons who his parents are.

      Hi Mercea, I know exactly what you mean! All throughout the last season it was so bittersweet, knowing there would be no more new episodes. I’m happy they all got great endings but it was still very sad. Charmed will always be one of my all time favorite shows!

      I didn't get a chance to see the last season years ago and am just catching up on Netflix but I started from the beginning. I was nearly in tears on the last episode not just at the story line but because it was over there was no more to see. This was by far the best show EVER. I say that now at 47, still the best.

      Hi Karen, that is so wonderful your family found a show you really connected with and can enjoy together! I absolutely adore Charmed and it’s such a special show to me. I just can’t give the new one a chance since it’s so opposite of the original, and I agree it probably won’t last for that reason.

      I tried to like the new one because the original charmed was so good. Three generations good. My mom ansd i enjoyed it. I was married and she and i would call each other qnd watch or discuss. Then my daughter found it and watched all seasons on dvds we bought. No e of us like the new one. Should have brought back Piper, Phoebe and Paige. The new one wont make it.

      Hi Carol, I absolutely love the original Charmed too! Phoebe was always my favorite and personally I loved watching her and Cole’s romance on the show, even when he struggled with his dark side. It would have been interesting seeing Prue evolve on the show more but I enjoyed Paige’s personality. Piper is by far the strongest and most resilient. The power of three kicked some major booty and I wish the original sisters would come back!

      As of right now i so love the original series of charmed better than the shows now of 2018. I was so excited when i hrd the show was coming back. This new charmed, im still trying to figure out ea of thr individual names, i know thr names start with an M. The original charmed sisters, prue, piper and phoebe now they were some bad sisters. I just wish they had played phoebe and cole's role of them married longer, it was touching. Prue was a lot tougher than paige on the series, paige her role was not as tough as prue. Pauge was just thr, thats my thought. I am hpful I'll like the new charmed as well as the original series. I hv every series of the original charmed, i can watch it whenever I choose to, it was one of my favorite all time show that came on bk n the day. Loved the 3P. It still comes on and i watch it when i hv tim. Right now i cannot compare the 2 shows bcse ii feel i nd to watch more of the new charmed. Of the original, prudence was a favorite, she was a bad sista, didnt take no stuff, i like. The guys were hot too. LOL, ,, cole, Leo, darryl, andy, Chris, Dan and others that played on thr. As of right now the original charmed still got it.

      Hi Marie, I couldn’t agree more! They had the perfect set-up to follow-up with the sisters’ children and have them mentor them! I honestly never bothered watching the new “Charmed” and I highly doubt it will see a second season. Hopefully they can get the formula right in the future and give the fans what we want!

      Bring back the original series version with the original characters as guides to there children who become the charmed ones. Like grams guided Piper, Pru and Phoebe. Piper (Holly combs) and Phoebe (allysa Milano) the other characters are not as important. DONT LIKE THE NEWS CHARMED AT ALL.

      Hi A, I agree. Piper was always so centered and resilient. She truly held the sisters together. I’m still so curious what the show would have been like had Prue stayed on. Paige was fun and free spirited but she definitely struggled with being a witch. Phoebe has always been my favorite (I loved her and Cole when they were good), but Piper was the strongest of them all. Thank you for your response!

      I felt that Paige couldn't hold herself together as witch and instead. Pru was great in all but she was only there for 3 seasons, I wish she was there for more. Phoebe was emotionally driven and I loved/hated cole . Piper just seemed like the most stable one that actually knew what she was doing with her life and going somewhere, even if her and leo separated. Which emotionally hurt me
