  • Why do I continue to do this to myself?

    1.0
    Each week I cringe at the thought of seeing Billie again, yet each week I keep watching the show... I don't understand it, truly I don't.

    This week, we had the hooker outfit - oh, sorry, I meant "superhero" outfit on the blonde bimbette who can't act her way out of a paper bag. Along with this outfit, we had the whole "I hate men" routine going on. Why? I *like* men - watching this episode actually made me uncomfortable with the show. Yes, men have their faults, but so do women, so there is no reason to be doing this on this show.

    I honestly don't know how much longer I can continue to watch this show, which is too bad, as I used to really enjoy it.
  • And now a magical belt has turned Billie into a super-heroine...about time she had her first posession/turned into something/turned evil, too...

    It's girl-power Charmed! Sadly, not really. I, a big feminist, hoped that the Charmed Ones would at least be tempted at the thought of a feminist world, but unfortunately not. Billie's super-heroine costume showed off her excellent figure, but the three little braids were a little ridiculous. Piper and Leo do kiss a little more in this episode, but not really enough to satisfy the fans...hmmm, let's see what else...the whole thing with Paige and the cop-betting was kind of stupid. I liked Paige's new charge and hope he becomes a recurring character. Leo-the-golf-player was quite funny, because in real life Brian Krause is very into golf - he probably requested that they throw that plotline in somewhere.Since when is P3 doing badly? That really just came out of nowhere! And even assuming that P3 IS doing badly, then how can they get Liz Phair to come? All in all, I would have liked more feminism and girl action, more (and better) Piper-and-Leo plots, with more kissing in them, and less silly hairstyles. It was nice seeing Billie act a little more the way she did at the beginning of the season, however. Oh, and did anyone else feel that the general 'we'll-never-understand-men-but-we're-more-similar-than-we-think-and-we-need-eachother' plot was very similar in feeling to the episode She's a Man, Baby a Man! ?

  • It was ok.....juss kinda bleh....

    7.0
    ok firstly at the end of this episode when they showed billie like laughing or giggling while liz phair was playing i juss wanted to slap her.....any way this episode was ok in a way...but i juss want to know how is it that the demon of the week always find themselves in magic school do they like take turns or some crap so??.....any way piper and phoebe were good in this episode they should really keep the 2 of them together cuz they'r the best actors in the show and paige should just stay away in her own storylines with her whitelighter stuff....again it was just ok but kinda bleh for my taste with the battle of the sexes crap...
