Charmed Noir is reputably Rose McGowans favorite episode, which is obvious after watching and seeing the excellent acting and chemistry by her and Kerr Smith (Agent Brody). A grumpy gnome, after an argument with the librarian of magic school, gets sucked into a book entitled 'Crossed and Double Crossed', which is set in the 1930's. Upon finding his body, which has been shot, Paige gets in "Kyle" to help her investigate, when they both unwittingly get sucked into the book, but manage to excape the corrupt detectives who shot the gnome. They dress up in old fashioned clothes and along with the music and black and white picture, it is very effective!
Phoebe find she can add to the book but not change their desicions, and it is cool to see how what Phoebe writes goes into the book, eg the piano. A few funny remarks made as well, even as simple as Piper-" Why is the G silent" at an odd moment. Even Phoebe's matchmaking attempts are funny. Indeed all three sisters act very well, especially Paige.
