I used to be obsessed with Charmed in the 7th grade and as I got older it was hard for me to get hooked on other shows. I would watch those reality love shows but that’s about it. Then I discovered Buffy & Once Upon A Time, and as you know I am obsessed with both shows…. But let’s talk about the bullshit that I stumbled upon.
Anyway I have been hearing and reading along the internet that there is a Charmed reboot that is going to take place in the 70’s. My first thought was cool… but then I thought about it. Lets do a little bit of wiki research.
The Charmed Ones are a prophesied sisterhood of three (later four) witches who descend from the Warren line of witches. They are known as the most powerful witches ever to walk the Earth and are dedicated to protecting the innocent and ridding the world of evil.
Each Charmed One has one specific power inherited from their ancestor, Melinda Warren; the prophecy states that the eldest has the power to move things with her mind, the middle sister can freeze time, and the youngest can see into the past, present, and future.
The magical bond between these sisters is known as The Power of Three, and is said to be the strongest form of magic in the world. It is represented by the ancient symbol called the Triquetra.
Although the prophecy speaks only of three sisters, there is a fourth Halliwell sister. After the death of Prue on May 17th, 2001, the Halliwells’ long lost half-sister, Paige, was revealed. She received her powers and joined Piper and Phoebe, taking Prue’s place in the Power of Three and reconstituting the Charmed Ones.

So how is it that the series is going to be rebooted and taken place in the 70’s when some of the Charmed ones were in diapers? Makes no sense. If thats the case then the show shouldn’t be called Charmed. In fact, with all the plot holes Charmed already has I don’t care for this reboot.
I am currently reading season 10 of the comics (it sucks by the way) and even that is a plot hole mess. I don’t want to be a negative Nancy but I don’t care for a Charmed reboot set int he 70s… If anything it should take place in the future and follow the Charmed one’s children. I also hope to god that they don’t reboot Buffy.
So what are you thoughts? Did you watch Charmed growing up? Do you care for it?
