  • Boob! Humbug!

    A mediocre episode which succeeds in playing out its main objective but does so in a slightly predictable and un-original manor.

    Hell Hath No Fury has Piper being turned into a Fury, a group of demonic women who were turned demonic after suffering through great pain. Meanwhile, Paige uses the Book for personal gain and ends up regretting it.

    Holly Marie Combs is absolutely amazing in this episode and the closing moments, in which Piper breaks down in front of Prue's grave, are heartbreaking. Holly is undoubtedly Charmed's greatest acting asset and it's a shame she is so underused for most of season four. Just in this short scene, she brings all the emotions hiding beneath Piper's surface to ahead and screams and shouts at Prue for doing this to her. It's an amazing scene and one of the best of the season.

    Paige's subplot could have been entertaining with a decent moral at the end but a charming storyline eventually turns pathetic as Paige's spell inadvertently causes her boobs to triple in size. It's a ridiculous story development and also incredibly patronising, especially the moment where she finds it difficult to drive her car as her boobs keep getting in the way. Uh, sorry writers, but women with big breasts can actually drive without difficulty! It's so sad to see a show which once had a strong, feminist message has been degraded to such nonsensical storytelling. And I'm also annoyed at how the writers almost try to cover up the titillation by saying its all part of the feminist message, "Girls out there, dress up in slutty outfits... to, uh, show off your femininity!" It's a stupid message and incredibly sad to here from this show.

    This could have been great, but falls under the dark spell of Brad Kern, who has shifted the interesting storylines to the background to make way for big boobs and sex gags.
