  • The Charmed Ones get their first top secret job with Homeland Security. Meanwhile, Billie gains some comic book-inspired superpowers, Paige falls in love with a Parole Officer and Leo needs to find a band to perform at the P3.

    I disliked the casting changes in season three and felt that the writing and production values seemed to suffer. However, season six and seven really had some great episodes and so many fans held out hope for an even better season eight. Sadly, this was not the case. Kaley Cuoco is a great actress, but the character of Billie, was poorly written and always felt out of place. Clearly, the show's budget was drastically cut, which can be deadly to a supernatural-themed television series such as this, but that does not excuse the amazingly poor and one-dimensional writing. The basic idea of having the Charmed Ones, who have longed for a normal life, working for the Federal Government screams, "X-Files" rip-off and the writers efforts to appeal to comic book readers seem to have been developed by people who probably never read too many comics. With a bigger budget and some better writing, these sorts of ideas could have done well. As it stands, the quality acting manages to keeps things afloat, but just barely.
