Let's get this out of the way first: I am not part of the target demographic that Eastwick is trying to put under its spell. The adaptation of John Updike's The Witches of Eastwick skews so far female that, after watching the pilot, my estrogen levels are off the charts. But as Desperate Housewives took the Sex and the City format and successfully wrapped it around a murder mystery, Eastwick achieves similar success by adding real-world witches to the mix.
It seems the cancellation storm cloud that's been following our favourite shows may finally be lifting, as this weekend, ABC reportedly followed in Fox's Dollhouse and Chuck saving footsteps by giving Scrubs, Castle and Better off Ted another lease of life.
When thinking of witches, two types come to mind: green-skinned hags with crooked noses, bug-eyes, warts, and rotting teeth, and sultry vixens in skin tight robes, able to control men without even reaching into their eye of newt.
