    An entertaining episode which excels in developing the characters and which also has an interesting demon story, Size Matters' demon storyline feels like something out of an old Vincent Price horror movie and the idea of a demon melting women into figurines is really freaky.

    Size Matters has Paige getting spooked by an old house in the city. She soon discovers that the handsome owner, Finn, is the creation of a warlock called Gammil who abducts women, shrinks them and turns them into wax figurines for his collection.

    It's nice to see the sisters finally supporting Paige's feelings. I found it really annoying how Piper and Phoebe completely breezed past Paige's suspicions about an old freaky mansion. Hello, it's old. It's freaky. It's a house. It's more than likely that the inhabitants are psychopaths! Have they never watched scary movies??!!

    Gammil was a very creepy villain, probably because he was played with cool menace by Ol' Pizza Face himself, Mr Robert Englund. It's always cool to get famous actors as guest stars and when your guest demon is the one and only Freddy Krueger, it's guaranteed to be awesome. Rose McGowan was brilliant in this episode and really managed to fit into the cast quickly, far more successfully than previously thought back when Shannen Doherty left the show.

    Piper's subplot is effective and I loved the "resurrection" of the P3 sign at the end. The new look club, "The Spot", looked extremely tacky and I couldn't wait for it to be taken down and the old P3 to return. Size Matters is a really enjoyable episode with some good dialogue and an entertaining storyline.
