In 1998 'Charmed', Constance M. Burge's story of three sisters who discover they are powerful witches, first aired on the WB network. With eight seasons and a run of best-selling DVDs, the series has established a continuing global presence as the very essence of cult TV.
'Investigating Charmed' is the first comprehensive guide to this groundbreaking series. It brings together for the first time expert contributors - all fans of the show - to explore the show's unique brand of witchcraft and fantasy. From notions of upturned sexuality and alternative forms of family life, to ideas of feminism and the portrayal of female heroes, this book penetrates the very heart of the 'power of three' and their crusade against the demonic population of the underworld. Looking also at the fans' relationship to the show, as well as the novels, fan fics and blogs it has spurned, the book on this fantastic magical show concludes with a complete Episode Guide which covers all eight seasons.
