    My jaw literally dropped at the 'with all the other freaks' line at the end of part 6. Was she serious???

    You make me bleed, Charmed.
  • KingZeal  - Research
    Lupa, how did you get ratings research for the review? I'm interested in finding info like that.

    How was Season 6 rated compared to the rest of the season? I'd hate to think it was well-recieved.

    oh my god I hate that stupid navy ad, the thing always ALWAYS freezes! It's supposed to be a 30 second commercial but it takes over 5 minutes! and then I have to sit through it TWICE during each video, what the hell is wrong with blip?

    Guys, can we focus on her videos instead of the damn ads? Please?

    Speaking of which; I applaud you Lupa for your level of tolerance and patience for this crap of a show. The levels of research and time you've put into these videos are so worth the wait. Keep on truckin'!

    Thanks for addressing the whole "flithy whore" deal w/ phoebes horrible horrible character. As someone who is all about sex positivity i was a bit bothered with how you described her sexuality (in a negative) in the previous review.

    The sheer amount of awkwardly placed ads still piss me off though
    but whatever

    Wow... Nice choice to end the part on "With all the other freak."...

    I'm going to be raging about this for a while now.

    I seriously don't get how these witches keep thinking they have any chance of a normal life considering the fact that they are witches that are supposed to help people... And that line from Piper??? Really?! You refuse to seal your son's powers but insist that he have a normal life???!

    And then you call other magical children... (who have powers like you... and your kid) freaks?????!

    Also since she said with all the other freaks it kind of implies that he is one too...

    Wow... what a fucking bitch. I may hate her more than Phoebe...

    Charmed is on a teeth-gnashing level of awful. I take back everything I've said about "Sex in the City" being the worst and most sexist show for women. Now it is only #2.

    On the plus side I could watch that hateful bitch Piper getting decapitated (6:28) all day.
  • Mischi
    This review here is one of the best works I've seen on this site for a long time. It is interesting and funny. I never watched more than 2 episodes of this show, but I found it very easy and enjoyable to sit through all these season reviews. Reminds me of Linkara's Power Ranger reviews, which I hold interesting, without even watching a single episode of power rangers.
  • kyren0
    I was seriously cracking up at the joke you put after "we don't turn our backs on family" on part 6
  • Meganubis  - SO GOOD!!
    avatar
    although Im a huge charmed fan (and a guy), I still love your riffs on the show, I cant get enough. In Other news, this is my fourth viewing and the ads have disappeared.... is that normal?
  • Meganubis  - Ads
    avatar
    Nope looks like ads are gone for everyone... what the fuck blip, so im gonna wait a while before watching atfw, atleast until ads come back...
  • Raven Wilder
    Great review. Hope you have more fun with Season 7; I remember the Avatar plotline from that season being pretty good (well, pretty good by Charmed standards).

    Now, which would you say you like more: Evil Leo from Season 6 or Lazy Leo from Season 3?
  • DarknessFallz  - Best line

    I was dying when Lupa called the charmed ones shitlords, it is probably the most fitting thing to call them

    Oh man. What a show. Empath Phoebe managed to be worse than before, got a perfect man and then got him written out the moment potential drama crops up, a new man every day... this really IS just self-insert fanfic material.

    I liked how Leo looked so crushed when Daryl finally left those abusive witches behind. Just the LOOK on his face, like he wants to plead with the only other decent guy in the show to please please PLEASE don't leave him alone with these wicked harpies! Alas. Did Daryl ever go back or did he stay the hell away like a sensible person should?

    And then Piper calls the other kids freaks. WEEEHEEELLL eff her then and godspeed towards Morally Ambiguous Dumbledore on suceeding with his mission. Although speaking of that- I didn't quite get if Gideon actually drove Leo to kill him so that HE could be the sacrifice that would right the balance, or was that just something he HADN'T planned on doing? Also was Barbas actually good in that world, or was it just that the demons had to take on the roles of good people?

    Man there were so many episodes to this retrospective that I kinda forget what happened in the previous ones. Guess that's what happens when you have so much crap to deal with.

    From the last sections of your review of this season, I thought that Piper had become even worse than Phoebe, but after seeing this, I can see that Phoebe is still the bigger cow. I guess she still has to up Piper in that department. I can only imagine how much worse the ego stroking will get from here for Alyssa Milano and Holly Marie Combs.

    Alternate dimension, Harry Potter Magic School. Really? What will the writers pull from their collective asses next?

    6 down, 2 more seasons to go. I read on Wikipedia that there's a 9th "season" which is a Charmed comic series. I'd suggest a crossover with Linkara for that, but since he reviews comics in character and your Manic Episodes are out of character, I'm not sure how that would work.

    part 5: 09:25 You only spent half of this season groaning?

    Part 7: Isn't killing people for petty infractions evil, the opposite of good?

    Piper called her own baby son a freak. What the fudge did the writers think that they were accomplishing with that line?
  • LilacElf82

    Thank you for addressing the Harry Potter rip-off episode. Much as I like Charmed....yeah.

    I like the show for the most part but there are some things that strain believeability PAST the breaking point.
  • saigastorm  - The Year of Witchcraft and Charmed
    Man; what are we gonna do when the Witchcraft and Charmed series end?
  • chapomon
    avatar
    Yeah, season 6 was all over the place. I like your idea about what could have been done with Chris being Phoebe's evil offspring surviving and seeking revenge. The ending for the final episode was moving though anytime a show uses evil twin ides, its a sign that they've scrapped the bottom of the well of ideas dry (as if season 5 wasn't a red flag of them getting low.) Still, I do like to think the last two seasons were better than season 5 and 6.
  • Alencar
    I never had the stomach to try this series. It always felt soooo boring and stupid right from the first scene of any episode...
  • knightsintodreams  - 7th heaven?
    avatar
    after you've finished Charmed, would you consider doing a series on 7th heaven next? it's a show that aired on WB, and it's ridiculous and i think a goldmine for hilarity as they overreact to things, but always so so so sincere that you find it hard to fault them for it.

    anyhow, thought i'd mention. i'll be so sad when your charmed series is over.
  • rosarius
    Where is the next season??????
  • MarqueeMoon  - I might be juvenile, but...
    ...I giggle stupidly whenever that Phoebe "imitation" comes up. "Relationships are icky!" kills me.
  • psycher7
    I hate it when bad shows take what could be a really cool idea and completely botch it. Taking a character with little to no empathy and giving them empathic powers could be very interesting. Can't have that, of course...
  • TheaKaran  - love you!

    I love your reviews, I just wish you did more like this one, so I can watch them more often. The only thing I really hate is the ads - I just cannot stand them, it's worse than watching live TV.
  • e_x_i_t
    Hey Lupa, have you ever considered reviewing the Weird Science TV series? That's assuming that you even knew it existed. It did, went on for Five seasons and (going from nostalgia) wasn't half bad. I can't really comment about the series past the first few episodes from Season 1, since I recently rediscovered the show, so if anything the episode "Universal Remote" is worth checking out since it's really the best episode of the first season.
