Finally! An actually decent episode! When you first hear the title and the storyline of this hour, your immediate reaction is to run and hide. Thankfully, Charrrmed! turns out to be an entertaining episode with a lot of comedy and exciting scenes.
When a young woman is kidnapped by pirate Captain Black-Jack Cutting, the sisters have to steal the cup of eternal youth to get her back.
Harve Presnell gives a funny performance as the Captain and it's always fun to see pirates on TV, no matter how laughably bad it is.
The scene where Phoebe does some Entrapment-style acrobatics through a museum security system probably looked good on paper but when transfered to the screen, it comes off as kinda laughable with Alyssa's stunt double blatantly going straight through the security lights without the alarm going off.
There are some nifty effects when the glass cabinet shatters and Piper freezes it and the introduction of Kerr Smith as Agent Brody promises some interesting storylines for the rest of the season.
Hopefully we've seen the back of Sheridan, whose knocked out to la-la land by Brody. She's sniffed around the Halliwells for a while now and still isn't less annoying. Shiver-me-timbers! Watch this!
