What's your opinion on the portrayal of witches and other beings on Charmed? Is it ridiculous, accurate, impossible, etc? Do you believe any of those beings exist?

There are definitly things on the show that seem to me to be impossible, but keeping an open mind I think that there could be people out there that could be able to do what the sisters can do, but the whole entire demon thing is what I find the most hard to believe, I can grasp the magical part but the uglies that they have on there are a little hard to believe.

I can see what you're getting at, but I have to ask; if there are good magickal beings, why not bad?

I think that their are and could be bad magical being just not as they are portrayed on the show, just a person who choses to be bad and use the powers that they have for bad instead of good

I believe there are people that have gifts. and the good and bad part are how they use there gifts.

Being Wiccan myself there are some spells that they have done that I know to be fiction and not possible. The thing is the protray 3 women as the heroes, I think it is a great idea. The thing I love the most about Charmed is it adds fantacy to our lives. The things they can do I wish I could do in reality and who knows maybe in the future we will be able to but for now I am very happy with the fantacy. There is 1 major fact in the series Charmed. No matter where you go and what you do there is always good and evil. The thing is it is how you see it and use it.

I've been Wiccan for a while now as well, so there are quite a few things I've noticed in Charmed that don't really line up with reality. That doesn't make the show any less entertaining though. There is good and there is evil; and there are those who work for evil, whether you want to call them beings, demigods, demons, etc. That doesn't change the fact that they exist. There's always so much room for growth and improvement while you're on your path; I really don't think it can all be accomplished in one lifetime. Blessed Be

I have always enjoyed it. It is a good show with good stars. Some of the show is based on Mythology, some is based on Wiccan magic, some is just purely someones imagination and just plain fun. It is good in that it does show that their is good and evil in everyone, and it is the person and not their religion that makes them that way. I have a question, does anyone believe that a neighborhood like Desperate Housewives is real? or a doctor like House? They are fictional tv shows, even if some of the characters and situations are based on something real.

I love your response; it makes a lot of sense and you're right. They pull a lot of the show's influence from pure fantasy, but incorporate just enough actual Wiccan ways to make it semi-plausible. Blessed Be

of course those are impossible... but you see that's how people are being entertained... people love that and it makes their imagination wider and besides it wouldn't hurt if you believe in some charmed stuffs like fairy tales and all...

Being that it IS a television show, there are definately things on there that are no way ever going to happen. However, I do believe in the Wiccan Ways, not that I practice them myself. The things that you see on the show are ridiculously off the wall, but I do believe in magic. For the most part, the things that are said about the religion itself are true.

if you take away the powers. then the show can be based on real life. The demons are the bad people in the world. starting with the low level which is robbers and theifs to the high level which are killers,kidnappers,rapist,etc. the three witches are those of us who are trying to make through everyday life,we are trying to raise our kids and live our life the right way and that all gets disrupted by people who are doing the wrong thing. as for the magic I believe there are people with gifts out there not to the extent of freezing time or anything but I believe there are people who can see the future. Its just how those people use there gifts that makes them good or evil.

I liked the way you put that show into the context of real life. I wonder if that is what the people who made the show were going for? Anyways, as for the things on the show like demons and stuff, I'd say it's possible. I mean, how many of us had seen unusual things before we were in school? Our parents usually tell us it's our imagination, so we begin to think that way. There could be demons and that sort of thing, but maybe we just forgot how to see them with our own eyes since we were taught that it's all in the imagination. That's my take on it.

People underestimate the power of human beings and believe in supernatural beings. Remember every living human has "energy". When we die, our bodies die but this energy stays in the atmosphere. Energy is never lost it is transferred or converted. Try to understand the "real" life in which you live and Avoid tampering in "not so real" ones.
