Three Charmed Sisters
There are/were plenty of Threes I could have done for this day, but Charmed holds a special place in my heart.
When I was in middle school and high school, my mom was going to school to complete her masters as well as working a full time job. This left little time for us to be together. So we made an effort to spend at least one night a week just the two of us. Occasionally we would have stowaways on on girls night in (usually my best friend at the time from down the road), but for the most part it was just the two of us. We would make dinner together and watch Charmed together and just generally be together.
This show is a show ultimately about family. Paige, Prue, Phoebe and Piper were bonded in a way that I never saw on television. They fought like the sisters they were, and loved like the sisters they were and forgave like the sisters they were. Even now, you don’t see a family like that on television anymore. There are similar friendships, but an actual family dynamic is missing from a lot of television now a days. Stepping away from the sisters, the family dynamic doesn’t change, the sisters relationships with Grams and their mother is SPOT ON to an actual relationship with a mother and grandmother.
As an only child, I didn’t really know what it was like to have sisters. Charmed allowed me to kind of see what it was like to have a sister… and what it was like to be magical.
And of course, Charmed was one of the first shows that I ever “shipped” someone in. I wanted Leo and Piper to be together forever and ever. Which is why when Brian Krause came to Salt Lake Comic Con a few years ago I couldn’t resist getting a picture with him.
“Be careful of the Murdock boys… They got the devil in ’em.”
At NYCC this week, they released the first trailer for Daredevil season 2.
Honestly there is a LOT about this season that I’m excited for. I’m stoked to see the potential cross over with Jessica Jones. This show has been easily one of my favorite shows to watch (and rewatch) since it came out in April.
The cast is phenomenal and is only getting better. With the additions of Jon Bernthal as The Punisher and Elodie Yung as Elektra, the new season is destined to be amazing.
Jessica Jones: Season 1
“It’s time the world knew her name.”
I have been anxiously waiting for this series since I finished my Daredevil initial watch through. I’m excited for this edgier side of Marvel, and I’m STOKED for Krysten Ritter to play Jessica Jones. The addition of all of these characters to the Netflix Marvel Universe keeps getting me more and more excited.
Its the same reason I love the DC shows on CW so much. I love to see the characters cross over and interact with one another. This is no different. It’s already confirmed that Rosario Dawson will make an appearance on Jessica Jones, now I’m just hoping to see if Foggy can control his sarcastic tone if he were to meet her. Of course, ultimately I’d love to see Matt and Jessica exchange tips on catching the bad guy, but I feel that that won’t happen for a while.
Are you getting excited for Jessica Jones and Daredevil? What are your thoughts on the casting and character choices?
I’m sorry I’ve been a little MIA this week. I blame my excitement for Salt Lake Comic Con starting TODAY!
This is Salt Lake Comic Con’s Third Year and has been growing like crazy each year. This will be my second time attending and I’m VERY excited. This con has had its fair share of growing pains (and then some), but I feel that each year they are trying to get things better and better.
This year I don’t think I’ll be doing any cosplay. It’s going to be a year of photo-ops for me and I don’t want to be in Cosplay for my pictures (I know. It’s a bit lame).
Though just because I won’t be dressing up, doesn’t mean I don’t want some pointers on what to do for Cosplay.Read More
