The WB (ended 2006)
It's difficult to say.
Seasons 1-4 were fantastic but it started going downhill with 5.
The initial premise (sisters who happened to be witches) changed more and more toward the end, and the Charmed Ones seemed to become witches first and people second, with more and more outlandish things happening and supernatural creatures showing up all willy nilly.
But I agree that seasons 6 and 8 were the worst of the lot. Maybe 8 more than 6. The whole looking like other people thing was just annoying, and they seemed to be trying to cram way too much stuff in there - especially where the sisters' romantic relationships were concerned.
|I hated Dan so 2 is not on my top list. I would say that 1,3,4 are my favorite.|
i jst thouht i would put down my reasons for why i dislkied season 8 and 6 as everyone else has so here it goes to begin season 6 i hated because the story becmae stretched thin phoebe had had a good run with her story with cole and the writer forced new story onto her with the empathy power which was crap and glad they got rid off and then sent her on that quest to find the faryther of her child which i hated anyway i also disliked chris's plotline itr was so obvoius that the writers had'nt planned chris to be pipers son at the end of season 5 he was there with different hair and different agenda aka stoping titains but thew writers made no attempt to show countinuity with the chris thing when they should how he came into the charmed world form the future which was a little ott IMO it wouldve been more passible if they hadnt made the furture all sci fi when in no way will it be like that in 20 years stupidity really anway this brings me to season 8 apart from really dislking billies and her acting skills the whole chagning bodie appearence was ridiclues and wouldve been better to have concluded atr season 7 season 8 was silly and the sex and the city reference was not exactlly clver either the ending wouldve been nore exceptable if piper had made an attempt to save prue with coops ring or at LEAST SEE HER ONE LAST TIME OFF SCRREN if thw writers couldnt show prue they couldve at least referenced her more honestly abash on them
|For me it's end of season four til the end of season six. Those seasons focused wayyy to much on Phoebe's adventure. The show totally just changed to her and her story lines. Which wasn't fun because I can't stand her character. Other than the too much Phoebe, the storylines in season five were so childish. Ugh, too much for me to handle. And I was so focused on looking at Alyssa's tattoos in season four that I kinda hated that season at the end. And no, they were hot at all... more like trashy.|
whilst agree withe the season 6 part of phoebve i felt season 4 was the best story phoebe had but wouldve been better to finsih there then countinue into season 5 with coles ressurection i feel alyssa was a good actor the writers just ruined her chareacter
|season 8 was silly and the sex and the city reference was not exactlly clver either the ending wouldve been nore exceptable if piper had made an attempt to save prue with coops ring or at LEAST SEE HER ONE LAST TIME OFF SCRREN if thw writers couldnt show prue they couldve at least referenced her more honestly abash on them|
|The main reason I hate season 8 is because the book was never used again AND Phoebe has hardly ANY Premonitions!!!|
I KNOW! She only had 3 premonitions the entire 8th season, which was dumb because they just dropped the whole giving Phoebe her powers back. The first two of her premonitions didn't even have to do with magic or anything it was just about Dex and his crap. The last one she had was when she like astral projected into the future to speak to herself about having a baby, which i didn't mind whatever, but then she doesn't have anymore? (on screen). I mean, they could've made her useful.
To be honest i go through phases, i used to hate season 6 but the more i watch of it the more i get used to it, i mean it's still not my favourite but i don't mind it. But i really don't like season 8, i think it's because it had changed so much, and they bought Billie into it and i wasn't keen on her at all.
Season 8 was by far the worst. There were some really bad episodes in other seasons but in S8 every episode became like a chore to watch. Bringing in Billie and Christy was a big mistake. I feel the show became more about them then the Charmed ones. And neither Billie nor Christy was played by a good actor. Billie ruined every scene she was in with her whining. I hated the way she expected the sisters to care more about helping her then bringing back Leo. Charmed is one of my all time fave shows but in that last season I could barely watch a whole episode without my mind drifting off somewhere else.
I think everyone who loves this show will agree that the first 3 seasons were great and the show just wasn't as good from there on but while may not have been that good I still enjoyed it up until S8. I may be in the minority but I quite liked S6.
