Charmed (The CW) – Premieres 14th October
A reboot of the 90’s show where after their mother dies, three sisters find out that they are powerful witches who can keep Earth from being overrun by evil demons and the like.
In the episode, three months after the sisters Maggie and Mel arrived home to find that their mother Marisol has been murdered. The pair have fallen out with Maggie arranging to leave home to live at a Sorority home. As this is going on, Macy arrives in town, and unaware that she is related to the sisters, ends up drawn to them.
After the three realise they are related and notice that they have powers, the professor at the university, Harry Greenwood, reveals to them that he a Whitelighter and explains their background to them. Where he then gives the girls 48 hours to decide whether they want to keep their powers and fight evil, or to return to their normal lives.
The trio then discover a presence that is after them, where after defeating it agree to keep their powers. Then when using a Ouija board manage to contact their mother who tells them not to trust Harry.
Altogether it’s a pretty bland fantasy show, and while it’s something you could sit through to burn 45 minutes, it’s not something you actively hunt out.
