Uncharmed on Charmed 

When I started this blog at the end of last year, I expected to include Charmed as one of the shows on which I would comment. The episodes since then have really left me feeling rather blah. Nothing great, nothing horrible - just empty entertainment. It's as if a lethargy demon has infiltrated The Manor, and is working towards removing all remnants of zip from the show. Even Grams in her recent appearance seemed a bit resigned. Maybe this is how Wyatt ends up power-crazed evil destroyer of San Francisco - he was bored.

I think Wyatt needs to start acting up a little more. The last time I saw some backbone and spark in the sisters was after Wyatt conjured the dragon out of the television and was temporarily removed by The Cleaners. I loved that their solution was to go on a visible magic spree in order to make The Cleaners' lives so hectic that they found returning Wyatt to be the easier solution. A little less mature restraint - a little more wheeeeee! - and I might be a happy viewer once more.
