Charmed - Teflon® Weltanschauung

I joined Netflix a while back, since streaming movies on the 360 is so convenient. Too bad not more of their collection is available that way. Back in my Law and Order days I ended up watching an untold number of Charmed reruns. Kind of got into it. Now Netflix let's me watch a show I don't care enough for to purchase the DVDs. Sweet.

First, I am totally in love with Shannen Doherty. I think I have had a crush on her since 90210. And then her appearance in Mallrats was golden. Second, I pretty much grew up with a massive crush on Alyssa Milano since her Who's the Boss days. I have no idea who Holly Marie Combs is but I fucking hate Piper; still, Milano can carry me through pretty much every ep single-handedly.

At least, by the time the reruns rolled around I hated Piper. Just watched S1 disc 1 last night and... well, Piper isn't a whiny mega-bitch. I kind of like her, in spite of myself. I wonder if this is going to be another great Seinfeld reversal. See I thought Jerry was a terrible character when I first watched the series, but on reruns I really find him to be the best character in the show. Maybe I will like Piper after all.

That's so funny about Jerry - I hated him too. I thought he was a terrible actor (he is), etc etc etc, but now he completely slays me with every rerun.

And agreed that Charmed has a lovely line-up of smoking babes. I always liked Piper because she wasn't as Hollywood svelte, but I remember her personality occasionally being iffy. Hope you continue enjoying the reruns :)

I am! Season 2, disc 1 down. I think I eventually don't like Piper because I think she treats Leo very unfairly, always yelling at him. "Leo!" Grrr. I can see it coming already.

Not looking forward to the loss of Pru, either. She's awesome.

But you're right, HMC is not a traditional "babe." I think she's adorable, though. It's kind of a shame she hasn't done much. Maybe she didn't care for the Hollywood life.
