Charmed : season 5 review


22 50 minute episodes

SF elements

urban witches


The fifth season starts fairly well, with a few good episodes. Phoebe has turned against Cole, and he tries to win her back, but is gradually overtaken by his Dark Side, and dismissed mid-season. Then the baby-arc starts rather dominate, resulting in some rather sappy fare, and losing its dark edge. So, just more mind candy, really. (But the Elders are shown up to be fallible wimps -- not the kind of beings one wants in charge of ones destiny.)

Rating: 4.5

[ unmissable | great stuff | worth watching | mind candy | unwatchable | unfinishable ]
