They’re a bit wicked, they fight the evil of the supernatural world, and yes, they’re witches. That’s the premise of Charmed, a Spelling Television production that features Alyssa Milano as Phoebe, Holly Marie Combs as Piper, and Rose McGowan as Paige, a trio of sisters who must keep their identity as “The Charmed Ones” secret from the world. The series is currently in its fifth season and often combines the sexy imagery of its slick gothic style with Buffy: The Vampire Slayer type action and drama.
