    I love the witch it came back
  • It was quite awful.

    I think the best way to describe it is: as a television version of a religious person looking at a double rainbow while tripping balls on acid.



    It made little sense and they rarely actually closed plot lines.

    Pretty much all the characters had only the facade of development -for how many of the characters, was an actual reason given as why they did what they did or why they the way they were?



    They just jumped from one plot artifact/gimmick to another and they did it fast enough so most people didn't have enough time to think "wait, what hell just happened?" before the next 'profound and mystical' thing happened.



    It was all rather superficial and 'trippy'



    BTW: It was as much sci fi as was Charmed. . .the only way Witchblade could have been more of a mythological fantasy -was to have a Dwarf beat a Griffin to death with a +6 club and to then be eaten by the pet dragon of Lucifer.moreless
  • This is one of the best SF series I've ever seen

    About the only one that might be better in my opinion is Farscape, but just by a little.



    The richness of story, character, music is awesome.



    But it doesn't need my complements because it can stand on its own just fine.



    Yancy Butler is excellent.
  • This was one of my favorite shows!

    I have been a fan of the comic book ever since it came out. I was ecstatic when the show came on TNT. Yancy Butler was not my first choice as Sara Pezzini, but she made it work. The suit of armor as the Witchblade, I had some issue with, but I can see how expensive it would be to make the one from the comic book. I loved the storylines and how season one and two were connected (I would say more but I do not want to have any spoilers in my review). Recently it was announced the TV show was finally coming to DVD. All I can say is it is about time! My VHS tapes can only take so much playing.moreless
  • Was it Joan of Arc? Perhaps? This was the story of a woman's struggle against her demons, and an age old battle of good vs evil. It always helps to have a sword that can be worn on the wrist.moreless

    I remember my reaction when I saw the two hour pilot episode, I was just amazed. I thought the story line was awesome, the actors very well cast, and I couldn't wait for the following segments. I enjoyed how the sword, called "the witchblade" intertwined the past and present, flashbacks of some greater figures of our history. I hadn't followed the comic book previously, but immediately ordered a subscription to learn more. The series premiered on TNT, and I contacted the local cable company (I lived in a very small town) who supplied me with two promotional posters. I have since had those framed. I was an avid viewer for the two seasons that the showed aired, and was very disappointed when Yancy Butler's alcohol addiction and declining health gave Witchblade a bleak future. The eventually cancellation was a very sad day at my house.moreless
