  • When free spirited Phoebe recites a magical spell, she awakens long dormant magical powers in herself and her two, more career orientated, sisters. Now they must learn to balance work and romance with magic and supernatural villains.

    The 1990's brought numerous supernatural-themed network television shows. This pilot illustrates why this series, with its original cast, managed to stand out in a crowded field. The chemistry with the sisters and other cast members, is amazing and the special effects and writing are both above average as well. This was not some cheesy, B- series or a simple action adventure series. It successfully combined supernatural adventure-themes with real life challenges (i.e. career and romance), third wave feminism and some moments that were sweet, if not really funny. The series started to go downhill fast, with the casting changes, but it was a really great series for awhile.
