    So what should be the new song? How bout the Cranberries' controversial "Just My Imagination", complete with the off-paced wild cheer from the crowd?

    But seriously, that's lousy not having the Charmed song! So what should it be? It would be appropriate if it's a band who performed on the show. Did any band perform at P3 in S8?

    I heard the new version on youtube and it´s not that bad, but i like the old one more. Maybe it´s because i´ve been hearing the same song for 8 years and i got used to it.

    Yeah I hear it too and I agree with you 100%. The question is why did the theme song get changed now? I mean if the song had to be changed it would have been done for Season one DVDs, like a lot of other shows.

    I think it's something to do with the rights of the song running out, so they couldn't use it on the season 8 DVD because the rights had run out or something, because season 8 got released a while after the other seasons.

    I've heard that's a possible reason but up until now I never knew it would apply to a show's last season on DVD. The song was used for Season 8 when it was on TV.

    Alyssa's going to be on "My Name is Earl" in November!

    http://community.tvguide.com/blog-entry/TVGuide-Editors-Blog/Ausiello-Report/Exclusive-Earl-Charmed/800021729?messageID=800252977&

    :
    Sounds like there's some good frakkin' karma headin' Earl Hickey's way.

    My Name is Earl has tapped Alyssa Milano to join the cast as a possible love interest for Jason Lee. According to sources, the ex-sorceress is on board for a minimum of eight episodes. Earl meets Milano's tough and quirky character through fellow inmate Frank (Michael Rapaport). The two bond and, through a bizarre twist of fate that harkens back to a seminal moment in Earl's past, he ends up teaching her the ins-and-outs of karma (note: karma very well could be a euphamism for something dirtier here).

    That's what people are asking at IMDB and FanForum. Here, it seems only you and I are interested.

    Have you looked at the pictures or read the sizes? The Deluxe Edition will a foot high and wide too I think.

    After seeing that new set, i'm really hoping a UK release is on the books for it as well, i've already got the magic chest edition, but i'll definitely go ahead and get this one as well.

    All i'm really hoping for one day, is a release with extra features including cast interviews, coming in a faux house boxset like the one the show is set in.

    Well two things come to mind. First, is the people releasing the DVDs are making it up to those of us in North America because we didn't get a special edition with the final season. Yes I know we can buy the boxed set but it's not special, it's Seasons 1-8 all in one package, like a boxed set of books.

    Second, if it doesn't come out anywhere else, order it through Amazon or get someone to make some copies and find yourself a multi region DVD player. Here's another news item, with more pictures of the two different sets, which as far as I can tell, the only difference is size. http://www.tvshowsondvd.com/news/Charmed-The-Complete-Series/10281

    Ms. combs recent comment about Charmed not getting the respect that Buffy did, is in my opinion a load of crap. I have enjoyed Charmed very much over the years and congratulate the cast and crew for a long run on a truly good show. But let's face it Buffy paved the way for every supernatural drama on television during the past 10 years.

    Well she was not slamming Buffy, just the WB for not promoting them. Look at how the WB treated Buffy in Season Five they even drove poor Joss to close down production on THE GIFT. She was saying that the WB didn't treat them fairly and it is the truth. Yes Buffy paved the way and I am a huge Buffy fan and thank that show for doing paving the way.

    Ok so heres what apparently the UK will be getting for the new DVD sets of charmed(only new thing is the featurettes).

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Charmed-Complete-Collection-Ultimate-Box/dp/B001CO8RYE/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&s=dvd&qid=1220464414&sr=8-3

    IMO this is a travesty, ok so we get the set over a month before the americans get theirs. But lets face it, its just a shoebox with pictures on it. Also yes it is the european quivalent to the "Book of Shadows" edition the americans will get, as it lists the special features that the new sets are supposed to contain.

    The only thing i'm hoping is that the image is actually the box, that contains the "Book of Shadows" boxset, much like the "Magic Chest" edition came inside a white box, labelled charmed the complete series.
