This is my first attempt at a blog. I know most blogs are all about the blogger's life, but this one is about Charmed. Ya know, that tv show on the WB that's about three sisters that live in San Francisco. Oh yeah, and they're witches. It's the best show ever on tv - in my opinion - and I've been a fan since July 28th, 1999. (That's when I saw my first episode: "That 70's Episode")
Speaking of that day, I should probably sit back and reminisce about the beginnings of my Charmed fan-hood...
Ok, so it was wednesday, July 28th, 1999 and I had just finished watching "Dawson's Creek." I had just gotten into that show during the spring and had missed some episodes, so the summer was a great chance to catch up on the shows I had missed. So, as the credits faded away from DC I saw that Charmed was on. I'd heard of the show, of course, but had never watched it. I remember seeing an ad for its first season in a magazine, and wanting to watch it, but I forgot for some reason. Call it laziness, call it boredom (I prefer to call it fate) but I watched the show. Within 5 minutes I was hooked. I had a little trouble remembering who Prue was, and was baffled at the name Piper, but as the episode wore on, I found myself completely engrossed. I regret not taping that episode, but I learned from my mistakes, and taped every single episode since then. I fell head over heels in love with Charmed on that July evening, and my love for the show has only grown since then.
As far as favorite characters go, mine's always been Phoebe. My brother also got into the show at the same time I did, and I remember asking him who his favorite character was. He said Piper, and then asked me who was my favorite. I thought for a brief moment, already knowing the answer: Phoebe. My favorite character always has, and always will be Phoebe. Alyssa Milano became my favorite actress and I received an e-mail from her on October 4th, 1999 wishing me a happy birthday. (As well as thanking me for the "sweet message" I had sent her.) Alyssa is my idol. I can't even describe how much i love her. As for Prue, Piper, Paige, Cole, Leo, Darryl, and all the other characters, I could never put them into any order as to 2nd to whatever else place amongst my favorites. After Phoebe, my 2nd, 3rd, 4th, etc. favorite characters change with every episode. I truly love Piper, Paige, and Prue the same. As for the guys, I was always a huge Cole supporter, but I do disagree with what his character turned into towards the end of season 4 and all of season 5. I do miss him though. I love Leo - how could I not? He's adorable!! Wyatt is such a cutie, Chris seems like an interesting new character, Darryl is awesome, and I miss Andy. I'm sure that, as time goes on, I'll tackle each character, episodes, etc. and write in here my thoughts about them.
With all that being said, here's to the beginning of "A Witch's Tale" - my Charmed thoughts blog. Where it's Charmed 24/7/365.
