This is my number one tv show. I've loved it from the first episode. I never miss an episode.

I caught on during the 4th season and I watch on TNT and WB and any other channel it is on. I am trying to figure out what I have missed and with all the episodes I have seen (but in no real order) I need to have the seasons come out on DVD!!!! I am sick of trying to figure out when things happened and the like... I just love this show and so does my husband. I think it is the only other show other than sports that he has admitted to liking! What has been your favorite Wicca moment?

I LOVE Charmed and have watched it from the very beginning (although I missed it from the summer of 1999 to the summer of 2002 cuz I was out of the country...). I can't believe that this may be their last season. I can hardly wait for the new episodes...I think they start next week, right??

We may see a spin-off -- so keep your fingers crossed.

I believe that's correct -- the new episodes start next week.

And if I'm not mistaken Cole (Julian McMahon) is in the episode.

I have watched from the very beginning too. Last week I rented a disc from the 1st Season because I missed two episodes and I could never seem to catch them on TNT. Watching those episodes made me miss Pru. I like Rose McGowan well enough but the show was definitely better when Pru was on it.

I have to say, I don't blame them for thinking about ending the show after this season. It seems like they are running out of story lines and demons. And Alyssa Milano is running out of hair styles!

I love this show. Since Ive been in the US, Ive seen all the episodes I missed when back home. Cant wait for all the DVD's to come out. Hope they all do!

I don't think you should have any fear of them not coming out on DVD. I'm sure they will. I think 'Charmed' has the same sort of following that 'Buffy' did. Matter of fact, I think the next one is coming out in May or June. I'll go check.

This is from TVShowsOnDvd.com

The rumored May release of Charmed season 2 is quickly approaching, and we've received a number of panicked emails from fans of the show asking us whether it's still coming out then. The answer is no, but don't panic, the set is coming. Apparently they couldn't get the masters ready for the previously planned May release, and they've set an August target for the next set. We're also told that Paramount is very happy with the sales of season 1, so the show isn't being delayed based on poor sales (so no need to panic).

We can probably expect the August announcement to come sometime in May. We'll keep you updated with any information we can dig up before then.

I can't wait until Aug!!!!! up until this past weekend i had seen mostly Rose M episodes but i do have to say that i do like Prue better than Paige but i like the fact that Piper and Phoebe have taken a more active role in it all instead of waiting for Prue to make the first move. i have to say that i love Piper. She reminds me of me :)

Me -- I've always liked Phoebe the best. But I think the real "magic" comes when they (all three) are working together!

I just thought he worked really well in the role. I liked the character -- evil and all.

I guess you had to be subject to watching him because your parent (mother) made you watch the show. Aussie soaps are not as good as US. The British really love them, but after 10 years it gets old. There is only so much I can take when its a soap. I was tainted from childhood when it came to Julian. He isnt that bad. Just makes me remember those days. Ok, sorry bit Off Topic.

Jem, I used to be a big fan of Neighbours and Home and Away (although I missed many years in between and never got see it while Julian's character was on)....so I guess I'm one of those people who really liked Aussie soaps... :roll:

P.S. I like a couple of British soaps too, most notably Coronation St :D

From 'Ask Ausiello' on TVGuide.com:

Question: Any news on whether Charmed is ending with a season or series finale in May? Has executive producer Brad Kern written two endings?

I won't miss the show if it ends. I use to love it and watched it faithly but last year it started to get really dumb that I haven't even bothered to watch it this season. It really was alot better when Shannon Doherty was on the show.

As a real witch this show has some things that I sometimes cringe at. In reality we don't believe in demons and angels (whitelighters). And "active powers" that they talk about (blowing things up, etc) are a little beyond what reality gives -- but have terrific entertainment value. I do know of witches that can levitate, but I don't think its a "witchy" power really -- other faiths have people who have achieved that level of meditation too.

What I like about the show are the real Wiccan things -- the power of three (although it doesn't really refer to the "charmed ones" is a real power that anyone can grasp onto with practice. We do have wiccanings (blessings on newborns), we do use candles and books of shadows. Its seeing all the things that used to be (and still are) objects of fear for a lot of people, used in a very normal way -- as most Wiccans use them. I like the show because it portrays witches and "good" and not the old hags that we used to be shown as.

WooHoo!!! I was having "Charmed" withdrawals but I'm feeling much better now. I just watched the latest episode "The Seven Year Witch"!! I won't give anything away for those of you who don't get to see it until tomorrow....so maybe I'll just wait until then to discuss it with you all. :D

'Charmed' Could Use a Little Magic

By Kate O'Hare

LOS ANGELES - Tonight, Tuesday, April 19, the cast and crew of The WB's "Charmed" are having their wrap party. Throwing a pall over the event is the uncertainty over whether it's just a season-end celebration or the last time the whole "Charmed" family will be together.

Speaking a week ago during filming of the season-seven closer, "Something Wicca This Way Comes," airing Sunday, May 22, series star Alyssa Milano tells Zap2it.com, "To not have a definitive answer [about renewal] on the day we wrap, even at the wrap party, there's something very foreign about that. I don't feel disrespected. I feel like our fans are being disrespected.

"I understand the business. I've been in it for a long time, and I get it. I get that The WB is in a transitional phase. Logically, I get it, but I don't get disrespecting the fans to not give them what they deserve for hanging in for seven years, because that's going to lose The WB more audience. "I wish, at the wrap party, that we would know so that we could hold each other a little longer." Co-star Holly Marie Combs agrees, saying, "We won't know how to feel. At the party, it's going to be horrible, because you're not going to know if you're saying goodbye for just a couple months, or is it for forever? I'm not going to sugarcoat it. I am not pleased. After this amount of time on a network, we deserve better."

For seven seasons, "Charmed" has told the story of good-witch San Francisco sisters -- the late Prue (Shannen Doherty), Piper (Combs), Phoebe (Milano) and Paige (Rose McGowan) -- who battle demonic evil as the magical Charmed Ones. The show has been a steady performer for The WB, despite airing on several different nights. It's faced tough competition this year on Sundays from ABC's breakout hit "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" and CBS well-regarded "Cold Case" -- and, to a lesser degree, from one of Combs' favorite shows, NBC's "The Contender" -- and The WB is no doubt wondering if it could do better with another show in that slot.

Either way, the decision has to come by mid-May, when the network announces its fall schedule to advertisers.

The recent 150th episode, which featured the return of former regular Julian McMahon, as the half-demon Cole, caused a spike in the ratings, but as he's now the star of "Nip/Tuck," he can't be counted on to return. The question is, will those extra fans stick around the rest of the year?

Series executive producer Brad Kern says, "The network loves 'Charmed' creatively and have been especially happy with it this season, but whether we come back or not still all boils down to ratings -- which means it's up to the fans. "If they all tune in and watch the last couple episodes, I believe that'll raise our numbers enough to push us over the edge and force The WB to pick us up for an 8th season."

"I'm always optimistic," says Brian Krause, who plays Piper's husband, Leo. "They'd have to be really silly not to bring us back." Combs, whose character became the eldest sister and de facto family leader after Doherty left the show, is a bit more blunt than her TV spouse. "I think they're torturing us on purpose," she says. "If this was our final season, things would have been a lot different. We would have been able to do a more spectacular series finale, as opposed to a more ambiguous season finale. So it's really not fair to our fans."

Asked if the season closer will satisfy fans, Combs says, "I think everybody will be disappointed. We'll be disappointed. We're all like a gaggle of bandits in denial. We're just going to go about our business, pack up our trailers and leave them where they're parked, and hopefully we'll have something to come back to."

In the past, fans have inundated networks with tokens expressing their devotion to a show, whether it's bottles of Tabasco sauce for "Roswell" or chocolate bars for "Angel." Combs ponders what "Charmed" fans might want to send to network executives. "Hmmm," she says, "we've never really had a food product. They make me serve a lot of tea, I'll tell you that."

She calls on McGowan, whom she says has "the most random mind."

"Candles are good," McGowan says. "You can get all your pentagram necklaces and send them in, or crystals."

"Crystals are good," Combs says. "Don't send any cats."

"This finale," McGowan says, "it made me pretty sad to read it. I call this being in the hallway, and I find that an atrocious way to live, period. I feel like I'm stuck out in some hallway with all the doors closed, and I'm just pacing up and down, waiting for the frickin' door to open."

Although Combs and Milano have worked on series before, this is McGowan's first. "This is more time concentrated with these people than I have spent with my family in my entire life," she says. "I have a lot of brothers and sisters, but we've never lived in the same place. The thing that was hardest for me to get used to is conversely the thing that I've become very attached to. "That's made me very sad. It's actually destabilizing for me, so this is therapy now."

At this point, Combs turns defiant. "I'm not packing up my trailer. They better call a tow truck, because I've got the keys, and it ain't moving. They can't get her trailer out unless my bus moves, and the bus ain't moving. "I say to fans call 411 and ask for [WB entertainment chief] David Janollari. Call his office at The WB. Tell him I sent you."
